My wife and I have been going here since they opened and as of late they seem to have gotten better. The burger, my wife says, is one of the best she has had (ever... and that is saying a lot!). The beer selection isn't your standard Boston area fare and I have actually been able to get Dogfishhead 120... More

Maybe I didn't order the right thing. It was ok, but it seemed a little too... "gourmetized". Not really the place to go if you are on a diet or a diet with specific portion sizes. The waitress is really nice, but the food not so much.

The place is very quaint, romantic, dimly lit, with some Halloween decorations. We got seated immediately. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We were seated next to the balcony. The balcony is nicely lit with Halloween pumpkin decorations. We ordered the Cuban sandwich and steak dish. The salad that came with my sandwich was good. The veggies were fresh, crisp... More

Saturday 10/25/14, just a bit past 4:30 stopped in for early Dinner. Hostess stated that all that was available was snacks and starters as the kitchen is switching over to the dinner menu. The next table receives burgers and grilled sandwiches, etc. When our waitress gets to us she says the kitchen is on a break and all that is... More

If I could rate this restaurant a ZERO I would! We (a group of 4 people) stopped here October 18 - a Saturday, for a late lunch. It was about 3pm in the afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too busy, there were empty tables - it wasn't packed. I've never had an experience this bad at a restaurant before in... More

Well, that was the worst... I did put one star because they did have a water for my dog(if they would not I 'd put 0). But besides that... Well judge yourself: We waited for our food for 20-30 minutes in quite a chilly weather, then I've decided to go ahead and just ask when it will be ready, for... More

How does a restaurant run out of milk during the town's biggest month of the year? To make it worse we found that out after waiting over 20 minutes for someone to even come to the table. Can't comment on the food because we never ate.

I found Naumkeag after moving to Salem and I keep coming back because it's so good! The menu is small but that's due to their commitment to changing the menu weekly based on what's in season. I've never had anything bad here, and I've been for both brunch and dinner. Prices are comparable to anything else you'd see in downtown... More

We had a very enjoyable meal at Naumkeag Ordinary. Starting off with the house-made pickles. Very interesting selection of cucumbers, onions, carrots, green beans, and red and yellow peppers. The four of us ordered, respectively, the burger, the mac and cheese (kid's menu) and two steak frites. We were all pleased with our selections and look forward to trying other... More

Very limited menu. Went here twice to be sure my impression wasn't incorrect. Too many other great choices, so this one is very low on the list.
