Two words: Deviled Eggs. Ok, more than two words but those were the HIGHLIGHT of our meal! Absolutely amazing. I only wish I could create them at home since Salem is a little drive from where I live. For other appetizers we also had the housemade pickles assortment and the zucchini fritters. The pickled veggies were pickles, onions, carrots, green... More

Had oysters and the Mussels, we weren't ready for dinner yet, but stopped in just for a quick drink and appetizers. Prices were not bad at all, staff was very friendly. Mussels were some of the best I've ever eaten.

From 4 to 6pm, you can get raw oysters for a buck each! Ours were huge, tasty; from Duxbury. No skimping on those! Enjoyed trying new beers on draft while we were at it. A real treat!

Surprisingly bad food. I came here because of all the great reviews and I was seriously disappointed. My hanger steak was cooked well but had zero flavor and was very bland. It came with a horribly bitter greens side and a dish of pickled onions with blue cheese, not good. My mother got the cuban sandwich and it was just... More

Naumkeag Ordinary was excellent for a rainy night date night. My boyfriend and I loved their beer selection and it was very hard to choose our food. We sat at the bar and got excellent service. We started with the pate platter and corn fritters - both delicious. For dinner I had the haddock with potato salad and green beans... More

I've been to Naumkeag a couple of times now, and their food and service seems consistently good--always nice to find that somewhere. My friends have also seemed to enjoy their meals, and we all appreciated a place to sit outside now that the weather is *finally* warming up! My first time there I ordered their burger, which was delicious. I... More

Last night (Tuesday) my husband and I tried this restaurant for the first time. It was nearly empty when we walked in, sans reservation, at about 6:30 pm. When we left at nearly 8 pm it was still nearly empty, while the restaurants both adjoining and across the street were bustling. This pleasant place seems to be getting lost among... More

I had the pleasure of dining with my family, including our grown son who just relocated to the North Shore and has become a "regular" at Naumkeag. The date was May 27th and we celebrating his birthday. There were some diners next to us that almost ruined our evening though. This couple was the rudest, and weirdest, in my opinion... More

We liked this restaurant quite a bit -- and there's a lot of competition in this area of Salem! Service was attentive but not overbearing. Food was very good and flavorful and accessible. For example, we loved the corn dog appetizer, and my pasta had fiddleheads in it -- so they're not afraid to explore! We especially enjoyed sitting in... More

My daughter's Bridal Shower was here recently and it was wonderful! From initial planning to final cleanup, the place was neat, clean and nicely decorated ... the staff was friendly, helpful and seemed genuinely happy we were there. And the food ... big, happy surprise! Fresh, nicely plated, yummy! Yes, I highly recommend this restaurant for all reasons!
