A Fun Afternoon Lunch

A nice lunch out while visiting Salem. The restaurant was very busy so we had to wait a bit especially because we had a large group. Food was tasty and interesting.

We were looking for a light dinner in downtown Salem and chose Wild Pear based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was exactly what we wanted. Tasty, light, no fuss, and at least somewhat healthy. The Red Quinoa and Avocado Salad with Grilled Prawns is delicious. It had 5 or 6 prawns atop a beautiful selection of lettuces with chunks of... More

Wild pear is consistently terrific. Every dish is packed with flavor, portions are good and service is perfect. It's s busy place so sometimes hard to find a seat but worth the wait. The family Vietnamese dishes are an unusual plus for Salem. Personally I think they have the best BLT around. We also use them for catering and that... More

Has a very diverse menu with great desserts. We arrived close to closing time so the desserts were limited. Awesome service.

A small but very friendly place to dine. Our waitress was so kind and helpful. Good for business because she encouraged us to try different menu items ;-). We were not disappointed! Yummy pulled pork sandwich, sweet potato fries, ginger-lime coleslaw and to top it of a slice of chocolate torte! All of it was so tasty and presented so... More

It's a "got to come back to" place! We were just traveling to the coast and found this on trip advisor. We will definitely stop here on your way back. Great gluten-free items also!

I had been referred to this charming, not your ordinary, Salem eatery by a good friend. My guest and I arrived around 11:30 and noted that the choice of places to sit was becoming scarce. Once we were seated we were greeted by our server with menus and requests for a drink order. My guest and I quickly made our... More

Just arrived in Salem and had lunch at this great eatery. I love places like this as they offer half and full size portions which is great, excellent good and service and extensive menu. Has a great vibe too.

We have not found too many really good restaurants in Salem, but this is one of them. I had the Lobster & Seafood Melt. Yum. Paired it with a fresh salad with a house made dressing and ended up with half of the sandwich to bring home. I could hardly wait to eat it the next day for lunch. The... More
