DETAILS
From the restaurant:"Since 1914 the Woodman family has served up hearty portions of seafood and memories to generations of loyal fans. Visit Woodman's of Essex to dig into a New England feast of our famous fried clams, clam chowder and fresh lobsters. We're open year-round!"

Kids' menu. Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner daily."Woodman's claims to be the place where the fried clam was invented - on July 3, 1916, when Lawrence Woodman tried to drum up business by tossing clams into the deep fryer along with the Saratoga chips he was selling at his clam bar. Who knows if the story is true? Who cares? The fact is that Woodman's is today the Big Kahuna of North Shore clam shacks."- Michael Stern, Roadfood.com, June 7, 2006
