Nestled on Nahant Bay, Red Rock Bistro provides patrons with cinematic oceanfront views of the Boston skyline and an inspired menu of new American seafood, sandwiches, pizzas, and more. While feasting their eyes, dinner guests can sample starters such as fresh fried clams ($12) to warm up appetites and prevent seagulls from snatching waggling tongues.

Main courses include vibrant platters of housemade ricotta gnocchi richly robed with lamb bolognese ($17) and a collection of grilled flatbread pizzas, including a lobster pie with black-mission-fig jam, blue cheese, and a scallion drizzle ($19). The swordfish chop with almond wild-rice pilaf and orange-rosemary cream ($28) collaborates with a shoal of seafood selections so fresh they spent their morning discussing Flipper's latest publicity stunt around the air cooler.

Featuring live music Thursday–Saturday, Red Rock Bistro also hosts jazz brunch Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. Munch on brunch fare such as the vegetable quiche ($10), the tomato-hollandaise-sauced eggs Benedict ($12), or lobster frittata ($14), decadently drizzled with mascarpone and escorted by tarragon to the belly ball. For lunch, savor artful salads and sandwiches, or take a lickable lap around a bowl of chowder featuring Cherrystone clams, smoky bacon, and fresh herbs.


Though reviews vary on the service, reviewers love the atmosphere at Red Rock Bistro.

  • Red Rock has amazing food! I recommend their cheese plate and their brunch lasts til 3pm and is divine! HilaryC4950, Zagat

Red Rock Bistro

Veteran executive chef, Joe Guarino of Red Rock Bistro, devised lunch, brunch, and dinner menus brimming with haute cuisine and fresh-caught seafood. Gazes wander to the restaurant's massive bay window and the expansive beachfront and picturesque skyline vistas beyond before settling on flatbread pizzas bubbling with gourmet cheeses or house-made ricotta gnocchi. Delicate sauces simmered from lemon and thyme, maple bourbon, sweet onion, and other flavors season fillets of seafood and hearty chops of steak and filet mignon. Thursday through Sunday, Red Rock celebrates life with live music, which ricochets from glasses, breaks up Super Soaker fights on the patio, and bounces out across open waters as musicians cook up the sound of blues, rock, and jazz.

We really enjoyed the service (excellent and friendly) and our appetizers. My boyfriend enjoyed his dinner very much as well. I did find that the shrimp in pappardelle was very overcooked. Nevertheless, we will be back and I will recommend you!
