Great place for lunch downtown!

We ate here in the summer and sat outside. It can be a long wait if you show up right at lunchtime when all the state workers are having lunch, but if you go before or after, it's not bad. I love the unique food they offer. I thought lunch was affordable, but their dinner menu is pretty expensive... read more

Usually have a great time here, food is great. Was told 25 minutes, waited 40 in the cold only to find out they already sat us. Won't be waiting again any time soon.

Very good food if you can find a parking place! Seating is so close together it is impossible to have a private conversation. Loud & noisy. Indifferent waitstaff. Too bad they're not in a better location as they originally were.

This has always been and outstanding restaurant, and along with it's brother, The Acme Cafe, it is in my humble opinion, Salem's best. The food is so incredible good. They have items that other restaurants have: burgers, sandwiches, salads. But here they are so uniquely awesome. With the new re opening, there are new items. The Pho, chicken salad, and... More

We ❤️❤️❤️ Wild Pear! The food is unique and sooo yummy! I love the ceilings in the restaurant. The room is small and ALWAYS busy. During nice weather they do have a few tables outside. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.

The food is always good here but my favorite is the squash soup this time of year. It is delicious. Sitting near the door is always cold in the winter, but the food makes up for it.

I can't believe I lived here in Salem 10 years and just this year finally went here three times in a month. I'd been to events that were catered by them and the food has always been fresh tasting and made with high quality ingredients. It's a changing menu using seasonal, local ingredients. The seating is open and close. Not... More

At first glance, the menu seems a little unimpressive - mostly soups, salads and a few common entrees. Glance again, because the food is flavorful and well-priced. Save room for dessert! There are fun shops to wander in and out of after you eat (and had twice as much dessert as you planned to eat). The place can be a... More

The food is good, the prices are moderate but the service can be a bit slow. If you go on a weekday during the lunch rush expect a bit of a wait.
