Nothing extra, nothing else needed. The food is excellent and the service is very personable. The chef in the back has the best recipe for all things seafood. I had lunch with my family and everyone had a great meal. I encourage everyone who visits this part of Mass to stop in for a bite. Lobster lobster lobster, yummy!

No one can cook a lobster like Kenny at Roy Moore's. They are always done to perfection. Any time I have company I run down there. His seafood is unbelievably fresh. I buy lobster meat by the pound to make salad. If desired you can eat out back on the deck.

We had a great lunch here!'s the food was excellent… Some of the best seafood I've had and I live in Boston. The service was very good and we even got to sit by the window with an awesome view! Would definitely visit and would highly recommend this place.

The lobster roll was fantastic (fresh and served naked). My companion had the coconut shrimp which was terrific! Great service and our server was attentive to our need to get to a show starting within hour from the time we sat down.

Of course I had chowder and lobster, though the menu does have plenty of other choices. Since I'm clumsy, I went for the "lazy lobster," so I wouldn't have to do the picking myself. Very simple--lobster meat and butter--very fresh, and very good. Chowder was good, but not my favorite--a little short on clams--but chowderheads all have their different preferences.... More

Do yourself a favour and walk in here and try the chowder. Hot and fresh. Take it out to the back deck and enjoy your chowder with a nice view. We love chowder and this is up there with the best. The staff are very friendly, the service is quick, the portions generous and the price good. We want Moore.

We visit Rockport at least once a year, and chowder and lobster rolls from Roy Moore are a must! You'll be hard pressed to find fresher seafood anywhere. Yum! Also, the staff at Roy Moore is always friendly and the service is speedy. Their back deck provides a great place enjoy the awesome seafood.

Went in a few times just to chat with the owners. Let me hold a live lobster for a photo opp. Had a bowl of clam chowder which was amazing! Once while we were chatting, the owner said, "just a minute, I have a customer," he then grabbed a hunk of salmon and gave it to a very large dog... More

Hurry if you want to messily to eat these at Roy Moore's before they close October 31 for the season. We are mad for this place. Ate here twice this week. Forget the bready fish cakes. Go straight for the lobsters. Steaming them in sea water truly makes you feel you're eating the sea. Weird, but true. They cook gently,... More

Its been said in other posts. The chowder rocks. When in the North East, head up to Rockport, walk down the little shack in the village, get your chowder, sit out the back and enjoy life cause it doesn't get any better!
