A pretty good burger, but everything else not so much.

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... read 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.

Had a super dinner at Salem Beer Works. Service was great, and the menu offered something for everyone, including my vegetarian daughter!

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

Awesome atmosphere and wonderful staff. Very good food and drinks. Really enjoyed our time here. Definitely recommend trying to get in here on off hours, we went and got in no problem on Friday evening but on Saturday night the line was out the door with a very long wait just to get to the bar for a drink. Definitely... More

Choice of beers is good. Always want to try a couple besides the usual. Normally several sandwiches hit the spot. Had their version of a "Cuban". Food was good and good portion.

After being in Boston for three days, we were surprised to be in a restaurant with more than 10 tables! The environment was very open and had a lot of tables. I ordered the vegetarian Mac & Cheese and it was excellent. Our food arrived quickly and our server was friendly.

We had just missed out hotel restaurant at the Hawthorne Hotel by about five minutes. They said the only place let open serving food after 10:30 was Salem Beer Works. I was not in the mood to walk over here after having a long day of running around for Halloween fun, but my husband talked me into it. It is... More
