Enjoyed an excellent breakfast on a busy Sunday morning. The staff was friendly and although the restaurant was busy, service was quick & efficient. The atmosphere seemed like the perfect spot for locals and visitors. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable.

We have eaten here for years on our visits...always found it to be a great choice! The breakfasts are delicious and even to our surprise under new ownership, since we were last there, it continues to offer excellent and delicious breakfast choices! The wait staff is friendly and very helpful! The atmosphere is very pleasant! We didn't have to wait... More

Very small place but the food was good and service was great! I had the Anadama bread French toast. It was so good. It was cooked perfectly. Side of bacon was also very good. The waitstaff was very nice and attentive. I'd definitely go back if I'm in the area again!

This is a quaint place for a great breakfast. There is limited seating and at times a line outside, but the food is great and a memorable stop while visiting this great gem on the Atlantic.

While the Red Skiff only has about ten tables, you can snag one for breakfast or lunch at all but the busiest times. The fare is basic and well-prepared, such as fish and chips with cole slaw, or an asparagus and cheese omelet (breakfast is all day 'til closing at 2:30pm), They started pop-up dinners this summer, and we look...

Very tiny place but good food. If this had been during the busy season would have been a very long wait of a table but we were lucky only a few people were there.

Sign up on the wait-list and be patient because this little place is worth the wait. We've come to Skiff's for a while and the new owners have done a great job keeping it value and flavor-focused. We visited on this trip for breakfast and oh-my-goodness their homemade muffin made our morning. Honestly! It was a cinnamon-pear muffin that just... More

This is a small mom & pop style restaurant in Rockport. Owned by a young couple. Reliable breakfast and lunch stop. Good coffee and delicious muffins. We always stop for breakfast when in the area.

Our family has dined at the Red Skiff for years for breakfast. It is now under new ownership...the quality and value has seriously dipped. Always like the quality comfort food. Pancakes were crepe like and lacked flavor. Would not return.
