stopped in to catch the tail end of a football game and found a great selection of beer! Bar keep was fairly friendly even offering tastes of all kinds before selecting. Negative...barely anybody in the establishment, but maybe I caught it on a slow day.

We both thoroughly enjoyed a Hoppy Christmas beer. I had the scallop appetizer and it was really, really good. After a couple of days of mediocre food in a different town, my luck turned.

The food is always good here and they have a great selection of beers brewed in-house. The menu is not huge, but what they have is great. It's a favorite local go-to as well as nice place for tourists to visit.

Been visiting this Restaurant several times a year since it was built in the 1990's (it had another name back then, and has been renovated several times over the years to keep it up-to-date). Never had a bad meal, or a bad beer. Very inexpensive with many selections at $10 or less. The decor is fun, with some Salem-Themed Beers,... More

Food is good, but not many options. I was disappointed that the veggie burger contained cheese, but the waiter was good in notifying me and replaced it with a vegetarean item.

It is a typical bar with its typical cuisine. Come for the atmosphere and the libations. Food......just so so. There are better places to eat in the area.

this is a must for us when we visit Salem. They brew their own beer and it is available in a variety of sizes, a 4 pack sampler and 12,16,or 22oz. The menu is extensive and the food is quickly and efficiently delivered to your table. The appetizers are filling and the dinners are delicious.

Comfortable and friendly! Just wish their growlers were labeled as theirs and not printed with a Boston label. I would have purchased a bunch as gifts for friends and family.

SBW is a nice sports bar. Plenty of room. Extensive sports bar menu. Good beer. Average food. We stopped in for dinner and started the meal with a couple of their beers. Very good. (Brewed on site?) I had a burger which was nice but pretty much your average burger. My wife had chowder. Again not bad, just nothing special.
