Coastal charm, with exceptional cuisine from all over the globe. Rockport boasts the finest cuisine on the entire Texas Coast, hands down. Here are a few of our favorite places for food and drink after we fly fish Rockport.

Website – Our local coffee shop and morning hangout. All locally roasted coffee. Excellent homemade quiche for breakfast. And a great option for boat lunches too.

Website – Best food in town! Very quaint spot, with exceptional food and drink. They also have our favorite happy hour. We recommend the Pedro to drink.

Facebook Page – Sports bar feel, with higher end food. Excellent sushi and 21 homemade wing flavors. We love the kimchi fries, mango habanero wings and a cold Asahi beer.
