Memorial Day lunch/dinner in Rockport area?

tulseluper May 30, 2010 06:52 PM

My wife and I headed up to Rockport tomorrow morning... the plan is to arrive at the beach to watch the sun rise and enjoy a picnic breakfast, swim before the crowds show up, then hang out until we're hungry again. What's a great spot for late lunch or early dinner in that part of Mass that might not be mobbed on Memorial Day? Seafood would be awesome, but we're open to any place that Chowfolks think we shouldn't miss.

    If you go late/early enough to be off the crowded hours, you might find that the Lobster Pool is not too crowded. It's on 127 right next to Halibut Point (the place, not the restaurant), and serves good serve yourself Lobster Shack fare, and has a great view.

      The Lobster Pool will be crowded any time on a good weather day on the weekends, but you can call ahead and put in your order. with any luck you can take it to a picnic table outside, or put your blanket out.
