about us

Located on the tip of historic Bearskin Neck, My Place by the Sea showcases New American cuisine highlighted by fresh local seafood and an unrivaled romantic setting. Multiple-level seating areas offer breathtaking views of Rockport's craggy New England coast—the perfect venue for sipping, savoring and celebrating indoors and out.

Award-winning Chef Kathy Milbury and co-owner Barbara Stavropoulos created a one-of-a-kind dining experience when they took the reins of this elegant waterfront eatery in 2000. Kathy’s passion for local and sustainable cuisine and Barbara’s eye for design have perfectly captured Rockport’s rich history as a local seaport and an artist colony.

Come for the food. Savor the views. Create memories.
