Best food on our vacation! My husband and I had calzones and they were the best and huge! We could have shared one. My kids had pizza and garlic knots. The garlic knots were enough for the whole family and they were small but alot. Loved the atmosphere since my kids like lacrosse. Service was great-very friendly.

Our favorite place to go! Food is always great and service is wonderful! Their calzones are amazing and huge! Some of our favorites is their chicken tenders, Katie salad, all their sandwiches are great! Even their breakfast is great!

Stopped during our college visits. Very close to Roanoke. The food was good but a bit on the expensive side. Calzones were HUGH. One can feed two! Met with Bob who is a former lacrosse player and coach. Ask to sit in the bar area. The ambiance is much better there.

We always stop here when we are in Salem. Yes, you do have to drive downtown and park in the back of the restaurant. But always good food and good service.

We were recommended this restaurant by a local hotel we were staying. The food was very good. The menu had lots of variety with reasonable prices. Our food was served as ordered, with large portions. The service was excellent. The offered outdoor and indoor seating. The outdoor area had a large bar with several TV's to watch anything you requested.

Lets just say Mac n bobs has stepped up the game by adding a wonderful assortment of local I.P.A brews, Belgians etc.. 40 different craft brews on tap. Awesome! Served in a beer tree of 4 5 once glasses you get a good taste of the brew. I travel the world for my work and it would be tough to... More

On a recent visit to Salem, I happened to patronize this restaurant 3 times withing a 10 day period. On all occasions, the service was mediocre to poor. Visit 1 was with my Sister-in-laws & Niece - service was better on this visit - but the item that we ordered for carry-out was not correct - and of course, we... More

Mac and Bob's is everything a neighborhood restaurant should be. The menu includes a wide variety of salads, sandwiches, pizza and calzones, etc. portions are large but most importantly, delicious! On a recent visit I had an italian sub with steak fries...it just doesn't get any better.
