We have always been fans for Fortune Palace. The original one use to be in Peabody center and then they just maintained the Essex one. The owner is always pleasant and the food is consistently great and affordable. The restaurant could use a little sprucing...More

We know a couple who says this is their favorite restaurant in Essex. We ate here once, couldn't finish the meal, took the leftovers home and eventually threw them out. Chacun à son goût.

We stopped here for lunch as we do not eat seafood. We were absolutely surprised at how incredibly delicious the food was. The atmosphere inside is just so so. but the views of the ocean were absolutely incredible. And their fried rice is awesome.
