Have been patronizing Shultz’s for over 30 years. Good food and atmosphere. Service was very slow the last 2 times I have visited. Need more help.

After a 10 year absence we returned to Essex Maryland & immediately headed to Schultz's...hoping it was still there. Lucky for us it's not only still there, but hasn't changed at all...still down home, local crowd & old school atmosphere with a traditional Maryland menu....More

Old dated place serving good old fashioned food (seafood specialist) at a down to earth price. Great efficient service. Nice beer selection.

This is pretty much the ultimate local sea coast hangout. The food is frankly spectacular, especially the crab cakes, soups (I'm partial to the gumbo), sour beef (winter only), and, of course, the crabs. Prices are more than reasonable, drinks are cheap, and the staff...More

Best food, prices, and service around. You won't be disappointed. Crabs are cooked fresh when ordered so they take about 30-40 minutes. So go in prepared to relax, have a drink, and enjoy your company. It's worth the wait. The place is run by family...More
