“Meh...... ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Really don't understand how this restaurant is top ten in Salem. Very nice location, but the food is less desirable. Ordered the jalapeño stuffed peppers and they weren't even cooked all the way through. The batter tasted freezer but along with the jalapeño being crunchy like raw bell pepper. Service was so so with a small crowd and the wine was less appetizing. Will never go back over rated.

“Excellent Choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

We had not been to Robert's Crossing which has an out of the way but quaint location in south Salem. Very warm and inviting ambiance from the entry - we're immediately greeted by cheerful staff and shown to our table (we had reservations which are advisable since it was packed and on a Sunday night!). I had the blackened prawns which were delicious on a "bed" of delicately flavored mashed potatoes with mushrooms, carrots.....delicious! Also at our table, fresh halibut (all but licking of the plate occurred) and salmon.....all in our party were very satisfied! I will return!

“A Lovely Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

While visiting my parents for Christmas, we went to Roberts Crossing for dinner Friday evening and it was delightful. Our dinners were quite good and the atmosphere is charming, very warm & inviting. The owner, quite a friendly man, visited with us at our table and made the evening special. The only negative was our server, although very nice, seemed quite rushed the entire evening, even after we told her we were in no hurry and just wanted to enjoy a slow-paced evening. Still we will definitely return!

“Quiet, relaxing experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We dined at Roberts Crossing on a recent Tuesday evening and are looking forward to returning. The atmosphere was pleasant in the dining room, with wood and glass antique doors hung here and there from the ceiling to divide the room and add privacy in some areas. The soft lighting was calming. We were greeted warmly and given a table for two. We enjoyed the rustic French bread while we waited for our dinner. We both ordered their meatloaf with potatoes and lightly cooked vegetables. The meatloaf portions were even better than what my mother used to make, seasoned perfectly and topped with gravy and mushroom slices. Portions were large; we both took part of our dinners home. Our wait person was very attentive and placed extra gravy in little containers with our meatloaf in the take-home boxes. The well water was not to my liking, so they immediately brought chilled, bottled water to me to replace the glass of water. There was no room for dessert. We were very pleased with this restaurant!
