Good coffee and lovely smoothies . Very friendly staff. Happy to have a chat. We tried their pecan brownies. Yum. The place has a nice atmosphere with lovely little sayings on the Wall. So nice to go to a coffee shop that's not a franchise.

If the aroma doesn't entice you, the contents of the display cases certainly will. Beautiful and delicious bakery products here, and friendly, attentive staff. I could have done a lot more damage to their inventory if I weren't trying to cut calories!

My family and I have been coming to Rockport for over 25 years. We absolutely love it and will continue to support it. This was a terrible experience from the we walked in the door. The hostess ‘whispered’ under her breath “oh, no here come the spring breakers.’ I guess because we were a family...
Nope! We’re not spring breakers. We a family that loves Rockport and are trying to support it. We lost our home in Houston in Harvey. We’re now living 70 miles out of Houston in Bleiblerville in a small farmhouse homeschooling our kids... which is why we’re here during the week. Our waiter complained several times about how difficult it was for him and the other waitress to wait on all the tables alone...there were 4 tables in the entire restaurant. At the end of dinner he requested we quickly pay our tab as he wanted to leave for the night. We did pay quickly and leave. So...next week IS my college age daughter’s spring break but we will not burden Latitude with our business.

We chose to sit outside, which was just a few yards away from the bay water. Daniel provided great service. Enjoyed a delicious grilled shrimp salad with their own-made Thai vinaigrette while hubby ate a mahi mahi poboy sandwich and side of grilled asparagus (NOT overcooked like we usually get served). Watched brown pelicans and black-headed gulls soar in the colorful sky at sunset. Restaurant is settled between moored working and leisure boats, an interesting juxtaposition. Glad we brought jackets as it was a bit chilly.

We stopped by for lunch. My shrimp coctail and house salad were awesome. I loved the shrimp coctail sauce with the avocados, tomatoes, and cilantro. My husband had the Captain Morgan shrimp. His was so-so, could have used something to spice it up! That is why the review is rated a 4 instead of a 5. We will definitely be back!

The Shack's Smokehouse & Seafood

Reviewed By fernandopO223QU - Bulverde, Texas

My wife and I had lunch here. We ordered the fish & shrimp plate. Both had a light crispy batter. Light enough not to cover the texture and flavor of the seafood. The shrimp was fantastic but the fish was even better. The meat was white and frim. I asked and was told it was Black Bass!! I have never known for a combo basket to have Black Bass. It's usually a side order. This was a wonderful and unexpected surprise. We'll be back and do it again. Then come back for some BBQ. It smelled great as we enjoyed our lunch.

Captain Benny's Seafood

Reviewed By FrednVickie - Plano, Texas

The restaurant is only open Wednesday-Saturday starting at 5pm. It is BYOB. We brought a small ice chest with a few beers. This is a long-time, family run restaurant. Our waitress on the first visit was Britney, the owners grand-daughter. On our second visit, our waitress was Britney's mother. There are many family photos on the walls. I think most of the staff are related. The menu is limited, and all seafood. Your choices are mostly fish, shrimp, or oysters. Sandwich and seafood baskets are around $12-14. Seafood plates $20-25. We visited about 5:30pm on a Thursday. The restaurant was not busy. We were seated immediately and the service was good. I ordered a shrimp po' boy (about $12) that was excellent. It was served in a basket with fries. The sandwich was loaded with fried shrimp and had coleslaw on the sandwich, but the coleslaw had no dressing. We got tarter and cocktail sauce on the side. My wife got a fried oyster basket (about $14) that came with fries. There were about a dozen oysters that were a little small, but cooked well and very tasty. We will return.

Not on a main drag, but not too hard to find either. The menu is oriental so varied. Had mostly Chinese, but will return to try Vietnamese favorites. The service was quick and the food delivered to the table quickly. Prices are reasonable.
