Nice Place with Good Food

Staff is friendly, food is ordinary (and more expensive than it's worth), TV screens on every wall, not exactly a place to go if you want to have a conversation.

A eatery with a bar type atmosphere. Not fine dining but a place to go and have a couple of drinks and eat mostly bar food. Good food at a fair price but not gourmet.

We went for lunch AND dinner. It's big and can accommodate a lot of people. Our softball team just walked right in and they seated us easily. The food was good, everyone enjoyed their meal. Lots of TVs with different sports events on. Staff was friendly. Very nice.

We eat here often . Great atmosphere. Great food. Garlic knots are amazing (huge portion). Boston zone is one of my favorite foods in Salem. It's so big that 2 adults can easily share it. Busy on weekends. Wait time on food is a bit but worth it.

The food was excellent. Out hotel staff recommended it and it did not disappoint. I had the waitress choose my meal for me and she even gave me the history behind what I ordered. Very thoughtful.

As we were travelling through Virginia we tried to stay in Roanoke, but all the inns were filled. I used my trustee droid and found a hotel in Salem. We were looking for a really good meal. We were referred to Mac N Bob's. Our waiter must have been in the business at least a week; he was frazzled and... More

Mac and Bob's is an institution. Great food, and service. Love it when we walk in and sit at the bar and they already know what we want, even though we only come in once a month. The Garlic Parmasean wings are just slightly crispy and are AWESOME. Love the outdoor eating area.
