So every time I travel I look for places with good pizza and I am so glad that we found The Engine House. The moment we entered the scent was so delicious that I got hungrier than what I was. The staff was great, we were welcomed and acknowledge the minute we enter the establishment. At the... read more

I'm a huge pizza fanatic always looking to find the best! Engine house hands down is the best pizza I've ever had! Great staff and atmosphere! Thinking about this pizza I want some now! Few years ago also met Rob Zombie in there! :)

Not my favorite sandwich stop. I won't bother to go again. I was with my husband, son, his wife and their 3 children and we were looking for a quick place to stop and eat with little expense. Timewise, the food took longer than usual to be brought out, and the sandwiches and pizza only mediocre or below.

No visit for our family is complete with out a visit to Engine House Pizza. We have been coming to Salem several times per year for the past several years and always make a stop here (or two or three). We enjoy their pizza. It has a tasty sauce, good cheese, and a crispy crust. Their subs are pretty good,... More

The pizza sauce is highly acidic, all of their servers are run of the mill pizza shop quality. The main redeeming item on their menu was be fresh in house made chicken fingers. However, this has changed over the past year or so. They changed something about the flavoring, and now they overcook them, sometimes to the point of being... More

the food is always great and the prices are fair. New owners are taking the restraint in an awesome new direction with lots of remodels and new items to the menu. I've been eating here for years and the food has never been better then now. The wait staff and counter girls are always trying their best to keep up... More
