A tavern type eatery in a historic neighborhood. As out-of-towners though, we did not feel very welcomed by the waitress, who never so much as smiled at us. The food was tasty and plentiful though.

We stopped here on the way back from The House of the Seven Gables. The menu had less then 15 items on it which was very disappointing and caused us to leave before we even got drinks because no one had any interest in their food. Would not recommend visiting here! We even wanted to sit at a different table... More

Try the clam chowder! It is the best I ever had. Perfect cozy New England pub style restaurant. Owner is on premises and advises what to eat on the menu for out of townies. You can tell they care about their customers. Chips and salsa is also amazing. Best restaurant in Salem :)

Enjoyed a evening at this pub. Great local atmosphere, good food. The service was excellent and the young lad that was managing the tables was really on the ball ensuring everyone was served. Meal was followed by good local band, did not know any of the songs being from the uk but the music was good.

Excellent New England clam chowder, burger and beer. I had the Pig's pale and it paired well with both. The atmosphere is local and friendly; and the service was very tentative.

Baked Scallops were awesome. Roasted potatoes were good, broccoli was just steamed broccoli. Service was great. Served quickly so great if you're somewhat pressed for time. Unique atmosphere. Fun to hear "locals" chatting around us. Not happy with the tea, tho. Had a slight fish oil taste, like glasses were washed quickly with fishy plates. The only negative for me.

Happened upon this place after our House of 7 Gables tour and said "Why not" - after all, we were hungry. Seated right away (the place wasn't full at all) and was waited on by a cheerful waitress (who by the way seemed to be running the entire place - tables and bar). Once you look past that little smudge... More

The Pig's Eye is a Salem institution. Not the place for a romantic dinner, rather gather some buddies and head down for consistent food and fun times. The bar is great and generally other patrons friendly and welcoming. Its a "Cheers"-like atmosphere at lunch and dinner. Nothing fancy but fun and the food choices are classic pub fare. Juicy burgers,... More

Great place for live music but the beer on tap was warm and the pint glasses were stacked before dried and so left our beers still tasting soapy... If you only drink spirits then this is a great place to check out.
