We spent two weeks traveling in New England. The recommendations from Roadfood helped us find good local places to eat. These are places you might just otherwise drive by.

Essex Seafood has a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The service is friendly and the food is very good.

Essex Seafood may be mainly a lobster pound, but this is the North Shore of Massachusetts and their fried clams (here mixed with onion rings) are world class.

Though not as generous with the clams in their chowder as other local places, it is still very creamy and delicious.

This happy little lobster pound also makes excellent fried seafood. Dine in this building, or around back at picnic tables.

Unlike many of the other North Shore seafood restaurants, Essex Seafood is open year round.  Note the happy fish with the frying pan.
