Local good eats

Been here many times the food is great and the atmosphere is inviting. Each dish prepared and presented very well, accompanying wine selection was good, and the staff is very attentive and certainly know their products.

First time ever here. We sat at the bar thinking we may get a table outside eventually, however loved the bar so much we stayed there. The drinks were great - loved the chicken tender appetizer as well as the asian chicken lettuce wraps! Absolutely delicious! We think we found our new place to go!

Just a great place with great people. The deck is a fun place to spend a nice night. Apps are fantastic. But what makes the place are the people. Family run and they make you feel right at home.

Located in a lovely yellow house with outside deck seating. Three in our party were seated in the lounge that included the bar with tables/chairs and windows to the outside deck. We all ordered different dishes and we were all impressed with the quality of food and service. Very busy for a Wed. evening but that did not diminish the... More

Stopped for a quick lunch while passing through Salem. Came here based on other reviews. Excellent friendly service. Hubby got a burger. Said it was very good. I had a tuna wrap. Freshly made. Awesome sweet potato fries with honey mustard dip. Wish we lived closer. Would have loved to try it for dinner. Definitely will come back to if... More

Stopped there for lunch last week. They had a special going. Baked scallops over a ceasar salad. The second best salad I've ever had. The best salad I've ever had was there as well and is on the regular menu. Caesar salad with lemon butter haddock on top. Delicious.

Met an old friend here for lunch. We both ordered a salad and spilt a bread pudding for desert. They salads were fresh and the bread pudding was served warm.

We rented the down stairs room for our company celebration. The room has a great layout and atmosphere. It was beautifully decorated with Holiday décor and a section for a sit down dinner as well as a section for drinks and appetizers, dance floor area with comfortable couch and high top tables. The service was excellent. The food was excellent.... More
