We had the pleasure of going there with some friends who have been there before. The food is cooked real well to our tasting. This is not a place where you zip in and out. You spend time to enjoy the meal. We had the steak and scallops combo and the others had broiled swordfish with rice. The manager stopped... More

We went to this restaurant at the suggestion of my sister. We did not remember this restaurant as a restaurant that we had dined at many years before prior to moving out of the area. We liked it then and loved it tonight. The chef/owner has done a great job; our meals were delicious, the desert was decadent, the wine... More

Let me start by saying that the owner of this restaurant, Christian Breen, goes out of his way to help the community. He's always willing to contribute. Every year he hosts a breast cancer benefit with the tastiest appetizers around. His chowder and fried calamari are to die for. The restaurant has a cozy bayside upstairs dining and downstairs there's... More

We went on a Saturday night and this place was fantastic. Very cozy, trendy, and great atmosphere! The drinks were large, tasty, and well worth the money. The menu seemed very well done and they had classy options for whatever you felt like.

Had lunch today at this homey place. Nice patio, great service and delicious food. The captain crunch coated chicken fingers were delicious as was the Cajun fish wrap, and the beef dip (wrapped in naan bread). I would definitely return for another meal!

We were looking for a place to meet friends who were traveling on I 93. The BWG came up in Salem very near the highway. The menu looked good,reviews were positive and the photos were inviting. On arrival we were surprised how quickly the area changed from highway wasteland to country rustic. The BWG is in an old New England... More

This restaurant is really good. It offers so much; an outdoor patio, lounge area with lots of seating and dining rooms arranged like a house. The food was excellent. Great portion size for the price. Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly.
