Visiting Salem we stopped in for lunch. The Wild Pear was very crowded (in a good way) yet they seated us right away. Great decor and atmosphere. Wait staff was friendly and the menu had lots of choices. Even some of the drink options were quite special. Enjoyed my sandwich and sweet potato fries. Wraps were good. Everyone truly enjoyed...

We stopped in for lunch during a brief visit to Salem. The food was outstanding!!! The restaurant is located in a downtown Salem in a historic building. The service was quick and efficient. We would definitely come back during our next visit to Salem. The flourless chocolate cake is wonderful.

My wife had tried the Wild Pear so, at her urging, I decided to give it a try. There were divergent views of the food quality among our party of four; I was decidedly unimpressed having left this cuisine behind in California twenty years ago. Unsure as two what it was about the burger; the provolone or perhaps the aioli.... More

My wife and I decided to try Wild Pear and we were sorry we did. Our order was screwed up, the food is OK, and the price WAY TO HIGH for what you get.

We never expected to find this cute little place, but it was wonderful from start to finish. We began with the white truffle sweet potato fries, which were incredibly fresh, hot and crispy. Our lunches (a pizza, quiche and salad) were all wonderful, and we finished with an amazing triple chocolate cake that was gorgeous and delicious. The service was... More

Right on the main street, fresh food, good service and unbelievable inexpensive. Had 7 of us for lunch and the total bill was about $100 including the bar bill.

Don't let the size or the wait time deter you from eating here. We stumbled upon this place when we had family in town visiting. Yes, the restaurant is small & the tables are close together but this is all worth it for the food. The Shepherd's pie is amazing. All their sandwiches are delicious. But make sure you save... More
