Fun with beer

Nice assortment of local beers. Depending on your taste, there will be probably more than one you'll enjoy. They also did a nice job on the food.

We visited Salem Beer Works on a Thursday night. I was very impressed with the building and found it to be a great place to hang out with friends and family - large or small groups. I didn't try anything off the food menu but did try some of their beers and wasn't very impressed. The service was slow for... More

Party of 3 had lunch on a Tuesday. Waitress was good, efficient, friendly, but not too friendly. Food was quick, and good. Beer was really good. My colleagues had the beer with blueberries. I had the gluten free beer. Would love to go back!

We stopped here for dinner. Great atmosphere, food and adorable. The portions are quite large and the food was delicious. There were good choices on the kids menu.

We have come here quite a few times, and the last few seem to be lacking in food portion size and in service. Our waiter was running around frantically as they were short staffed, but not that busy. Bring back the enormous platter of nachos!!! Also most wine drinkers don't enjoy wine served in a stemless glass. I know they... More

We eat at the Beer Works restaurants in different locations. The day we ate at Salem Beer works, the food was really extra good for both diners.

Came here a little pressed for time, but really enjoyed it. My daughter and I sat at the bar and each had salads and bread for dinner. It was actually quite good. I had a salmon salad and the salmon was hot with a sweet glaze that just hit the spot! The service from the bar tender was quite attentive... More

Went here this weekend with the girls for dinner and drinks. The atmosphere was great, very cool vibe. Surprisingly not too crowded for a Friday night but we did have reservations just in case. The drinks were just alright. None of us got beer, so we can't speak for that but the mix drinks were a bit pricey for what... More
