Come for the burgers.

This is our favorite spot for a burger, and it's the food, not the service that keeps us coming back. There's often a wait for a table, and the hostesses have no idea how to estimate how long the wait might be. Wait staff is often rushed,but we have not had trouble with our orders being wrong... read more

Great bar food in a relaxing downtown Apex main street location. Outdoor seating for people watching on warm evenings. Family and dog friendly as well!

Love Salem St. Pub. Food is always good quality no matter what you order. Service is great no matter how busy & they are always busy but the wait is well worth it. My favorite is the Patty Melt, the best in town. Great location for trolling the shops in downtown Apex either before or after dinner.

Salem Street Pub is always a great place to stop in for some food, or grab a drink. Only thing that keeps them from being perfect is it gets crowded very easily. The food is great and the drinks are always flowing. The wait staff is nice, and the kitchen always waves and smile when ya seem them. Whether it... More

Enjoy eating at the Salem Pub. Great Patty Melts and good cold beer. Gets really busy but that is the sign of a favorite spot for many to eat. They also have a few tables outside which is a fun place to sit and enjoy the small, friendly town.

This is becoming our go-to place for wings. I know most people come for the burgers, which are good but not necessarily the "best" in the area. The wings are outstanding, and our preference is the lemon pepper version. The wings at Aviator are bigger and maybe the best overall, but the SSP is convenient, with good service and good... More

Here's the 1,2,3s... 1. The folks that say this place has the best burgers may not have yet been to some other burger joints around the Triangle, or maybe they don't get out of Apex. The burger was average in every way. 2. The draft beer list is average, the wine list was very poor, and the salads my friends... More

Salem Street Pub (SSP) in Apex is in the historic downtown, and serves pub-fare, beer and wine at fair prices. Their award-winning Patty-Melt is among the best ever, and you cannot go wrong with any of the burgers or wraps. We have made SSP a regular stop on Thursdays for half-price wings and Vanilla Porter. Yum ! There are 8-10... More
