Great pub meal

The service for our group of nine was fast and efficient. Food was the typical pub fair. I loved the extensive beer selection and beer flight options. Good for a group with mixed tastes.

Our waitress seemed like she was inconvenienced by us being there. We sat outside with maybe 3 other tables occupied at an off hour (2-3pm). She didn't introduce herself. Didn't offer specials or explain the beer options. Seemed bothered whenever we tried to flag her down. Beer was just ok. Wouldn't return for another visit.

We like some of the seasonal beers offered here. The service is pretty good, My husband and I prefer sitting at the bar. The bar tenders are friendly. They have changed the food selection over the years and not for the better. We used to visit. Monthly but they have changed their card system to a point system and we... More

My son and I just got home from Salem. While walking around we found this great restaurant!! The food is fantastic. It is very well known for their many choices of beer. I am not a beer drinker but truly enjoyed the food. My son had a burger with cheese fries which he said was the best ever. I had... More

This was one of the best meals of the trip, clam chowder was fabulous, there were even options for my vegetarian daughter. Server was very pleasant, restaurant was very clean. Will definitely be back.

I've eaten here a few times over the years, and stopped in again recently after a visit to Count Orlok's Nightmare Gallery. And it did not disappoint. The menu is fairly simple and straightforward - it's pub food. And good pub food at that. The prices aren't really cheap, but considering its location amidst the touristy sites of Salem, it's...

We went here for a late afternoon snack and refreshments. It turned out to be a great selection: very good beer and tasty snacks and very attentive helpful servers. Will return!

After many years of driving by this establishment my husband and I stopped in for dinner. The place was very busy and fairly loud unfortunately, but this is to be expected in Salem on a Friday night. The grilled chicken sandwich that I ordered was definitely on the dry side and my husband's cheeseburger was fairly lackluster. The tables were... More
