I was in a meat and potatoes mood, so I ordered the steak tips. My girlfriend ordered the fish and chips. I wish I had done the same, I just didn't feel like dealing with a whole plate of french fries. The fried fish was excellent, just the way I remember it from my last visit a few years ago.... More

We are locals but we had not been to the Beer Works in many years so we decided to check it out. Obviously the huge draw is the many varieties of beer- if you are into that I would say this is a must-do. We are not drinkers, but the food was very good. The menu is huge with lots... More

My girlfriend and I came to eat here and we were excited to have a few drinks and some food. Well that didn't happen. The waitress was great but after we ordered our food one of the managers came out to deliver it and told us that we shouldn't have the dog on the patio and that we should have... More

We've been coming here for years. Husband often orders a special, I get a salad, burger, or sandwich. He loves the selection of beers.

Annual trip to New England means stopping in Salem Beer Works. Never disappointed. Food is great, beer is great. Leaves you wanting for nothing except more time and more room in your stomach for more of their delicious food! Will always come back!

We were there on a Monday so it wasn't very crowded. We got good service. The selection of their own house beers is impressive. They have a beer for just about any taste. Unfortunately we were only in town for a couple of nights so we didn't have an opportunity to return. The selection of food was typical for a... More

Had the chicken and shrimp stir fry and it was wonderful. Much better than I expected. Service was slow and not attentive to us but the food made up for that.

You can't beat a friendly place that lets you drop in to check out the menu and gives you tips on the local sightseeing, eventhough they know you might not come back for a visit. We liked what we saw, and we definitely were not disappointed. Amazing choice of beers for a micro brewery, and the watermelon ale did not... More
