Staying Near Salem- Good Eats?

My kids and I are staying near Salem this coming weekend. Could I have some opinions on The Village Resteraunt in Essex and The Clam Box in Ipswich? Also is it worth the drive upe to Kittery for Bob's Clam Hut or Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier?

  1. Salem and Cape Ann are in a gray area on Chowhound but usually discussed on the Boston board, so you ought to repost there for your Salem/Cape Ann questions.

    Chauncey Creek Pier is a nice experience, with outdoors dining right on the water (creek). The food didn't blow me away but steamed lobster is steamed lobster whererever you get it. When you post on the Boston board I'll pipe in with a Gloucester recommendation.
