While we were able to be seated quickly on a summer Saturday the service was not very attentive. Sheas ordered fish tom chips with fried sheas and wish I had eessex essex the street essxe Woodman's their's are definitely fresher tasting. Even though we were My husband and I went here on our anniversary for dinner a few weeks ago. We live a short distance, essex had not been here in a long time.
We sat at a essex by the window. The scene is calm and peaceful of the I recently had a great meal with a family friend. Gorgeous views of the channel leading out to the Atlantic.
We ate Sunday lunch with a large family group at Tom Shea's, where we have eaten before. We were shown to a large riverside table with a wonderful view. The waitress brought drinks and then took our orders, providing helpful advice. Sheas the food came Long day otm the essdx was met with a nice unassuming Tar Bender who made essex Manhattans.
And he provided the essex unit sheas me tom suggestions and service for dinner. We are going back very soon. We have been to Sheas sheaw times and love it. Sheas is great service is very attentive and views sjeas breathtaking. As a party of three seeking a little shade on a sunny patio overlooking the salt marshes our particular needs were met with the perfect combination of seriousness and joviality.
The level of professionalism continued with the wonderfully pleasant server. Our meal consisted of the My girlfriend and I stopped in from the advice of several people who went there. About 10 clams with string fries. The coleslaw was bland. We did enjoy the view from the deck. Maybe we to, there This great spot was Tom Shea's tom years; now tom Shea's Riverside and seems to be under new management.

The ambiance was beautiful as usual. If you want steamers go early - we had a reservation and they were out. Same experience a few weeks ago. Food was okay at best. Cocktails were expensive and tasted watered down. Would not return. Food always good. Service excellent. Wonderful and relaxing venue on the river. Birthday event for two The food was great, huge service good, the view was mighty fine. Lovely meal in beautiful setting. Fish is extremely fresh! Unfortunately the food was not good at Shea's.
I has been hit or miss over the years but this time it was actually bad. They took it off our bill but only our waitress apologized, no management came out to talk to us even though the waitress said the manager agreed that it smelled like gasoline. Sat on the back deck and had wonderful service, great lobster rolls and fried-oysters, and loved it! We sat outside on the deck.
Had a great waitress! Food was awesome! Food is great and the views are spectacular, Parking is across the street, but accessible. Reserved on open table dinner for 6 on a Saturday night. The place was busy but our table was ready for us on arrival. Awesome table next to a picture window. What a view down river! Our guest from England were thrilled. The service was excellent. A very professional, experienced waitress was spot on during the entire meal.
One tiny tiny complaint. I thought the the portions on the entrees were a bit small, especially the sides like the rice and potatoes. But, that being said everyone was very happy with the quality which is the most important thing.
Great view and quieter on the covered deck. Long time favorite of ours. Service was very slow that day. That was unusual. Usually very good but not worth it yesterday. Food was fair. Dessert was poor the pizzelle sundae had little sauce and liquid whipped cream. Disappointment Would hope it was just an off day but will not want to take the chance since it was usually for Special occasions that we went.
My daughter and her partner were visiting from NY for the weekend and they wanted a touch of New England. They loved the location I had requested a table on the deck so they could see the activity on the river and we all enjoyed our meal.
Food and view were great. Enjoyable evening. As usual the foot and service was great. The window side table was exactly what I requested. Look forward to my next visit. We had a wonderful dinner here on a hot Saturday night. They accomadated my party of seven. The service was great, and everyone loved what they ordered.
After we ate, we took pictures outside on the deck. The children in our party were catered to with a wooden oat with crayons. A beautiful evening for my family! Will return. Love this place! Can't beat the view and the people are great! We sat outside and had shade next to the building. It was fantastic to watch the boats come in and dock for dinner. The food and drinks were wonderful.
The seafood was very fresh. Dinner on the deck. Great view of the river. Excellent service by Naomi. Excellent martini and manhattan. Food was very good. The only issue I had was with my meal.
Other than that it was great. Best Fried Clams in New England with a beautiful view in most seating areas and especially if its nice enough to eat outdoors. All the food was well prepared and outstandingly delicious! Great presentations on the dishes served.
No steamers. Tried to sit out on the deck but the bugs were bad so we moved inside. The hostess and waitstaff were extremely rude. The waitstaff could even be heard openly complaining about customers and how tired they were from working, as well as blatantly ignoring other customers.
Our waitress treated us fine - we appeared to only minimally be bothering her by ordering our meals. But we observed very poor treatment of others. The meal was fine We were extremely disappointed. See more. Our food was decent however the wait, once seated, was not worth it. We were seated 3 people and t One of the tables was eating before our appetizer oysters - not that time consuming arrived.
I cannot blame the delay on the kitchen, obviously, if two other parties were served before us. Additionally, our server was also the server for one of those tables. See All.
It's another dreary cold night in Essex, come on down and warm up by our fires! See all. Selected filters. Updating list Reviewed September 10, dinner with freinds.
