“Delicious, Delicious, Delicious!”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

My new favorite restaurant in the Merrimack Valley. The place was full on a Monday which tells you something. They we're short staffed but the service was still very good. We had the pork oso bucco and the lamb chops. Both dishes we're excellent and the prices are reasonable. I believe everything was under $24. Can't wait to go back.

“Slow but yummy!”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Great food, but the service is pretty slow. Worth it for the butternut squash ravioli, though!!

“Does it really take all that long to cook a meal?”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

I'm on a quest to try all the great places to eat in our neighboring towns, so have started each week to choose a new one to try. This past week was the Essex Street Grille. Definitely a pub atmosphere. Felt welcoming. The place was almost empty when our party of 4 arrived just around 5:30 (mid week). None of us were in the mood to drink, so water with lemon our order. I had the mahi mahi grilled taco appetizer - 3 small flour tortillas topped with great tasting fish, cabbage, etc... Perfect for a small appetite. My friends had the appetizer sampler and one had their grilled burger. We all agreed that the food prep was delicious... but we waited over 45 minutes for our food to arrive. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen but that was ridiculous.
So, if you are in the mood to go in and drink heavily before eating, it will be a good choice....
Parking is non-existent at the Essex, but there are several public parking garages nearby.

“The Best Restaurant in Haverhill Mass!”
Reviewed February 20, 2010

The Essex Street Grille is the finest restaurant in Haverhill. With an electic & extensive menu, there's something for everyone. The sauteed lobster is scrumptious and the steak au poivre is one of the best I've ever had. And the prices are so reasonable. One of Haverhill's gems -- highly recommended !!
