Essex, known for decades as America’s Antique Capital, is fast becoming New England’s Restaurant Capital as well, with over 20 restaurants and food service establishments in a one mile radius. Cuisine ranges from a classic hot dog served at a roadside stand to an elaborate four course meal served in an upscale atmosphere overlooking the beautiful Essex River. Restaurants like the Village and Woodman’s have been here for many decades but Riversbend at Essex Marina will be just opening for this summer season.

Set in a small historic New England seaside community of antique and gift shops, museums, river recreation and bountiful open space and natural beauty these establishments serve a clientele of locals, from “just up the street”, to visitors from all over the world. It is not unusual to find diners from Boston to New York, the Deep South or the West Coast. Foreign visitors from Canada, Europe and Asia are all a common sight.

Fresh New England seafood and local farm produce are a specialty at many of our restaurants. There are hundreds of offerings from their combined menus. Check out www.VisitEssexMA.com to view Essex restaurants and a link to their menus. Most businesses are open year round and are casual, family friendly, varied and affordable.
