Happened to go by Woodmans and see a line of about 150 snaking down the sidewalk. Headed over to Farnhams, mobbed. We passed Essex Seafood and did a u-e; man I am glad we did. It was a shorter wait and the food was outstanding. Very crisp, great flavor (oysters, cod, squid and scallops too)and in the rough. The people who own and run it live upstairs.
