“Great location, service and FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

I have had breakfast twice at Abby's so far and each time I was delighted with the quality of the food and the service. I am thrilled Abby opened this restaurant ! A wonderful addition to Essex.
The views of the marina and Connecticut River are so special on a sunny day! The menu offers some very special breakfast choices. You can eat in or out on the deck. I am going again tomorrow with my family. Love it!

“Great breakfast place in Essex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We were staying at the Griswold Inn, and while the continental breakfast included in the price of the room is fine, sometimes you really want some good bacon and eggs in the morning. Happily, we found Abby's Place, just a short walk from the Inn. The waitress was friendly, the coffee was excellent, and the portions were just right. Do give it a try when you are in the neighborhood.

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Not only is everything others have said here about Abby's is true, but we stopped by just after closing time - AND THEY LET US IN ANYWAY! Couldn't have been nicer. Clam chowder was great. Service was friendly and attentive. Can't wait til they add dinner service to their business.

“New restaurant offering nice atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Nice to see some new additions for travelers to Essex. This restaurant is located in an older building, but nicely remodeled with views of the marina. Owner and staff were very pleasant and attentive. Food was pricey, but good and large portions. Will return.

“EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Very high quality, fresh food. We usually go to the Black Seal (another great place) but I think Abby's will be stealing their customers.
