I was very disappointed with the service. We sat in the dining room and very few people were there. It was a Saturday evening around 7:00 pm . We ordered the Lobster and really expected to at least get one side with it. No nothing else came with the entree! The price was much higher than other restaurants in the... More

One in our party of eight never got fed - one in our party had to leave top deck to inform a restaurant employee about this problem. No one at front desk -had to look around for someone. Food is average at best. No one came to talk with patron about missing food order - plate of food came upstairs... More

We visited for a drink and appetizer on the rooftop deck. Beautiful setting and great view of harbor and Rockport, but the waited was interminable despite 3-6 tables being regularly open, and hence jumped by those not even on the list. Decided enough was enough after an hour+, completion of our social experiment, and being seated with too limited a... More

The rooftop deck has a great view but 4 out of 6 of us weren't happy with the food. The portions were small and overpriced. They had six choices for oysters and the clams on the half shell were good too. The grilled octopus was good as was the lobster roll. The hangar steak was very tough and all portions... More

Great harbor view upstairs. All local ingredients presented very well. Seated very quickly on a busy weekend and staff were very attentive and friendly. Very tasty seafood.

The title says it all, the view is great but they really need to do more with the menu. For the most part it is an appetizer restaurant. With its location and size this could easily become number 1 on trip advisor. They just need a couple of tweaks.

We visited 7th Wave for dinner around 8:00 on a Saturday night. Surprisingly we got a table on the beautiful roof deck. We ordered drinks while looking at somewhat limited menus. Knowing a large party was right behind us, we were ready to order, mostly lobster rolls and tuna ceviche and a boiled lobster When the waitress returned with our... More

Two years ago this was a hopping place, and it still is by virtue of its upper deck for outside dining, which offers a great view of Rockport Harbor and Bearskin Neck. We always choose to eat inside (cooler, out of the sun, and no wait for seats), where the view through the many large windows is almost as good... More

The food here was nothing to write home about. Not bad, but not great. Just average. It's a great location, with a great view from the rooftop deck, and they do make some very nice cocktails. But that's about all this place had going for it. We had probably the worst service at a restaurant I have ever had in... More

That's about it really. View from covered deck is just great, lovely evening views of the harbour mouth. Food was just about OK. Roll was pretty boring but steamers were so gritty and were pretty rubbery and the broth so grey and unappetising. Suggest a drink and eat elsewhere!
