Reviews from Tripadvisor led us to this restaurant on a Saturday early evening. I loved the fact that you could sit yourself at any table. The atmosphere is wonderful...has a "library" feel, i.e., paneled walls, upholstered and leather chairs, flowers on the table. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with suggestions. The food was very good and presented beautifully. If... More

Great place to stop on the way home from work for drinks and appetizers or for dinner. Service is consistently impeccable and the ambiance always pleasant. “Tavern..” overlooks Salem common and in the fall and winter, a crackling fire in the fireplace adds to the pleasing atmosphere. Appetizers, entrees and drinks are moderately priced, the menu varied and there are... More

During a one-day trip to Salem, I had a one-hour lunch in the Tavern as asvised by my Trolley tours guide. The experience was much better than expected: the Tavern combines a lovely & elegant ambiance with delicious food. Definitely a place I would come back to !

Very good food, terrific atmosphere, in a classy hotel in Salem. Much better than expected -- gray nachos, fish dishes both fresh and delicious. Local beer on draught. Casual but far better than most casual taverns. And the prices are reasonable. Convenient to the Peabody Essex Museum -- go here for lunch or dinner after the museum.

After a long day, did not want to go to a more formal restaurant, so we hit the Tavern at the Hawthorne Hotel where we were staying. Food turned out great, very good local brews and very friendly staff.

A little too much fun was had here! We had an absolute blast! The bartender got a bit rude in the last hour or two they were open, I imagine from dealing with over the limit folks. Regardless, my friends and I had a blast.

We wanted some grub following our night walking tour and this was one of the few places serving after 9 in our area. We had burgers and they were quite good! Nice wine/beer and good service.

Tavern on The Green offers a lovely, warm ambience in the beautiful, historic, Hawthorne Hotel. I love coming here for a healthy, fresh lunch. The service is very friendly and attentive. It is a great place to relax with friends. I also like the bar area, very affable bartenders. A very good find in the heart of Salem!

Having been 13 years since our last visit to Salem, the Tavern on the Green yet again was a great treat. Hidden in the Hawthorne Hotel, you feel like you are in another world. The food is amazing and the service is superb! You are never rushed yet you're taken care of. The nachos are amazing!!
