Woodman’s Restaurant Awards & Reviews

“An American Cult Classic—right up there with baseball and apple pie.”
— Zagat Restaurant Guide

Since 1914, Woodman’s of Essex has been honored for our award-winning Massachusetts clam chowder, fresh seafood and fried clams. We take pride in being consistently named one of the best seafood places in Massachusetts and the U.S., being voted as having the best clam chowder and fried clams. We continue to work hard to make sure you walk away happy.
