So, what's the secret? Quality & freshness. Our clams are dug right here — in Essex & Ipswich — by local clammers. We know every clammer personally and they know us. They know we only buy the sweetest, freshest, highest quality clams. It's that simple.
The same goes for all of our fish and seafood. It's fresh. It's local. It's real.
Plus we're easy to reach. Less than 4 miles from Rte. 128, and about 45 minutes from Boston (get directions)
in the historic town of Essex, MA, filled with antique shops and where over 4,000 schooners were built.
Come to the Village in Essex and enjoy classic New England cuisine with a contemporary
flair at afforable prices, as the Boston Globe puts it or enjoy takeout that the whole family will enjoy like BoMoms says.
