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

If you are in this area you have to go to Mac N Bob's it is just tradition. Great salads and sandwiches or full entrees if that is what you prefer!! We love to sit outside when the weather permits. When you are done eating you can walk off your meal with a wonderful walk through the lovely village of... More

Food is average and service is average. At one time I think their food was better, but it has gone down over the years.

My husband and I were passing through the area and this restaurant was recommended to us. He got their steak and mashed potatoes and I got the hummus and fried pita bread. He said that the steak and mashed potatoes were excellent. I enjoyed the hummus it has a good flavor and texture. I was not a fan of the... More

I visited Salem for two nights recently. The first night I checked into my hotel, and was heading out for late dinner (9 p.m. on a Sunday night), the hotel clerk put Mac N Bob's on a short list of restaurant recommendations of places that might still be serving dinner at this hour. Her first suggestion...Billy's Barn, I think it... More

Depends on what you order. Wings, salads, awesome! Fettuccini Alfredo was gross as was the ahi tuna... Service was pretty good but took entirely too long to get our food out. Half our group was done while the other was still waiting for their food....the other issue, they brought everything at once ...appetizers and food....ugh. Great for sports, food just... More

I grew up eating Mac & Bob's food. There are many things which are delicious - the calzones are great, the Philly cheesesteak/Chicken Phillys are wonderful, the Salem salad is delicious (I love the ranch dressing!). However, the menu can be very hit and miss. I'd avoid the ribs like the plague. The owners are from New York - if... More

Ate dinner as a party of 10. Good service. Good food. Least favorite item was basil chicken sandwich. It was a little bland. Asked for more basil mayo. Calzones were good!
