Food was excellent, onion rings were Awesome, very generous portions, worth the drive. If back in the area will come again.
Wow!! We are die hard Clam fans, and when told about this place, well, we had to try it. In a word - FABULOUS!! Huge plate of tender, sweet, perfectly hand breaded Clams. The Fries were good, and the Onion Rings were back flip worthy!! I had the Mac & Cheese, and while it was 'nice'...waitress shared it was just... 更多
The only thing the server wanted to talk about was chunk haddock, how they chunk it to keep it juicy....NO..way...looked like a plate of scallops, but it was dried out haddock ruined and of course nothing was reduced from the bill, the whole belly clams were better, french fries requested crispy, no one listened and they were pale and limp,... 更多
Thought we'd try this place for the Ipswich clams and lobster since we were in the area. The reviews were inconsistent so we had our fingers crossed. BIG MISTAKE! Clams, oysters, onion rings, hushpuppies were way overcooked...could barely find a clam belly bigger than a pencil eraser. Lobster was tasteless. Oysters were edible. Had to go around the back of... 更多
I love shrimp cocktail so I order it often. This is one of the best I have ever eaten. The shrimp were medium sized but prepared perfectly, very cold and already peeled with the tail intact. The cocktail sauce was outstanding! I usually have to order extra horseradish sauce to add a little kick but the Essex prepares theirs each... 更多
Closed on Tues, but wonderfully open on other days. They serve great fried clams, onion rings, but the fries are the typically pre-frozen and somewhat tasteless. Accept only cash and open at 11 AM. Located just east of Astor, FL.
I got the fried shrimp "boat" (i.e. basket) with fries. It came with five (5) shrimp that were very good and fries that were acceptable. This place is a very small mom & pop type of place that is cash only, no credit cards. Their address says Pierson, BUT it is located west of Barberville on state Hwy 40. Most... 更多
Drove 40 mins to try out this seafood restaurant, and we're disappointed with it. The place is very rustic, service okay and quality of food average at best. Being from New England originally, expected more. Their lobster roll was terrible, and the fried calms were okay. There are better options in Central Florida, will not being returning for a 2nd... 更多
My wife and I had eaten here before. This time we brought our daughter who lives over 1 1/2 hours away in Sanford, FL. She used to live in New England and has not had clam bellies in over 10 years. These are delicious, the portions are very large and the price is very reasonable. One order comes with two... 更多
