usually my go to visiting my son at Roanoke College but this last visit left me with a bad taste (not literally). Anything with the ahi tuna is excellent. However the waitress literally was throwing our entrees and bill at us. I think we were too small of a table for her. Won't be back

It is HUGE!!! you definitely get the most for your money there. Especially if you love buffalo chicken. You have to try that one before you die. Good service, cool place. The patio area is amazing! What a great hang out.

Mac N Bob's is a landmark that shouldn't be missed when visiting Salem. The portions are large and the beer selection even more so. TV's abound, so catching several games as once is very easy here. The back patio comes alive at night. It isn't the best food ever, but it isn't bad and the atmosphere can be wonderful.

Located in the heart of Salem ...just a short drive from I-81, this family friendly restaurant has a full selection of menu options and a wide range of beer and wines.

We stop in here once a year when we are in the area. My wife and I head here for lunch before going to Roanoke College for a soccer tournament. We enjoy just sitting at the bar having a nice choice of beers and getting a burger and or salad. Lots of TVs at the bar for Football season, friendly... More

Food is mostly ordinary and the menu rarely changes. The steaks are good for the price, although I have occasionally returned mine because it was not cooked correctly. Service is spotty.

I live locally and would like to give a better rating, but I must be honest. I would hate for visitors coming through this area to judge our many fine restaurants by this one. It does not matter whether I go for lunch or dinner, the service is always slow and on several occasions the servers have a non-caring attitude.... More

We had cocktails outside in the afternoon. Yes it was a little warm out but this would be a great place to watch a football game especially on a cool fall evening. They have a fireplace and lots of heaters when it gets colder. Many TV's for watching games and more beers than you can drink.

Our family got together last night to celebrate my mother in laws birthday. Service was very good, my dinner salad was very good as were the cheesy fries but my Chicken Avocado Wrap was awful! If youre going to put something on the menu with avocado then you should be sure that you source avocado's that are edible. I took... More
