Regulars praise The Crazy Tuna Bar & Grille for its tasty food and lively atmosphere, not to mention that it’s one of the few places you can reach either by car or boat. This Essex restaurant features 45 boat slips for customers, so whether you’re arriving by land or by sea, you should have an easy time parking. The menu is focused on seafood, with plenty of daily specials to take advantage of the local fresh catches. Yelp reviewers say the crab cake platter is delicious (you can request yours either broiled or fried), as are the many different varieties of fish tacos (try the soft shell rockfish tacos with sriracha aioli for something spicy).
Crazy Tuna Bar & Grille also hosts live music with DJ Calico every Thursday night, so plan your visit accordingly if you’d like to get up and dance.
