The Essex Inn doesn't always serve brunch (we went for Mother's Day), but when they do - go! You'll enjoy inventive, locally-sourced food, just as you would at dinner, but at a price that helps you decide to order that second dilly-bean-garnished Bloody Mary or...More

My husband & I had dinner last evening. It was a superb meal. The scallops and veal chop were excellent. We applaud the chef and staff. Everything was 1st rate in a delightful setting. A must go for every visitor.

The limited menu did not deter the 4 of us from having a pleasant evening meal: scottish salmon, lamb tenderloin, crabcake (on slate), wine & desert. Service was fine, though staff seemed quite busy as 8 p.m. approached. We would go again.
