“Good brews, poor food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015

Their Mamba beer is excellent, but their food leaves a lot to be desired. the Shiitake Bomb, mushroom burger was average but for $11.00, you would expect a bigger burger. The fries were plentiful, but were bits and pieces of over cooked shoestring type fries. The worst was the clam chowder, not eatable, was real runny, no taste, certainly not a chowder!

“Great atmosphere but food was subpar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2015 via mobile

The atmosphere was excellent and just the place we had been looking for since we moved to Salem. The food was ok, but the burger was over cooked and rather skimpy, especially for the price.

“Good beer and good lunchin Salem OR”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2015

We had a work lunch at Gilgamesh. The beer was very good but what's the deal with the over-hopped IPA's? Personally speaking, I wish the beers weren't so hoppy.

Anyway, the service and food (for lunch) was good. The place was busy which is a good sign. When in Salem, I would go back for a visit.

“Food was very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2015

Let me start by saying the service was excellent. Bartender was upbeat, friendly, fast, and knew his stuff. Beer was pretty good not incredible though. Space is really nice, warm and inviting. The food sounded great... but it was terrible. I paid $22 for their special to go all out. What a huge let down. It was barely edible. Looked like it had been sitting around. Bartender asked and I said it was just ok at best and he asked what he could do but I let it go. Just paid and left. I think they have a chance at being good but what I had was terrible, esp at that price.
