Our waiter Matt was an awesome guy. Very quick dealing with orders. They have shrimp that tastes like the Greenland shrimp, it doesn't have any fishy flavor at all. Reminds me of the shrimp we have in Norway. :) The view was nice, even in...More

Great views overlooking the harbor, even from tables not next to a window. Food was OK but nothing worth remembering. What we'll always remember is how inept the very young hostesses were in managing the waiting list. They put our name on the list and...More

For the money I spent, I expected a much better meal. Limited menu, slow and forgetful service and food was just ok. We had swordfish which was like a brick and not very tasteful, fish and chips and a grilled chicken sandwich. Not worth it...More

We came here for lunch. We started with shrimp cocktail which were small but very good. I didn't love the oysters on the half shell. My husband had the lobster roll which was great and I had the tune poke which was outstanding. The kids...More

We chose to sit outside on the upper deck. Works if your legs can deal with the stairs. Great Haddock fish and chips. Landlubber had a very good chicken sandwich. Service was good. Will definitely return.

We came for lunch on a beautiful Saturday and were able to be seated on the upper deck immediately. We ordered sangria and a margarita and both were great. Started with oysters, which were DELICIOUS, and then I had a Caesar salad with lobster and...More

We've come to 7th Wave several times and always have a good experience. This trip was on busy July 2nd but we had no trouble getting a table at 11:45 am on the upper deck. Beautiful views of Rockport! I had a delish generous bowl...More

If you want to pay too much for poor food while sitting on folding chairs, this is your place. The steamed clams weren't hot even the broth was cold. Garden salad was ok with bitter cucumber slices, bad tomatoes, and wilted onions. Beer was bottled...More
