Local restaurant had transformed wasted open space to a fun casual bar with food. Lots of local support for a friendly warm place. Bartender is attentive, food good and nice place to watch a game or visit at the bar

The Fish Shack is a comfortable bar and restaurant with a view of Old Harbor. Food is tasty and fresh, drinks could be a bit more generous, but prices reflect that. Love the local feel and running into Rockport people here.
