“Great Clam Chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We browsed the shops at the Wharf and ate at two of the restaurants. Until you have had clam chowder in New England, you haven't had clam chowder!! Delicious!!!!

The store merchants were very friendly. The Wharf had a nice variety of stores and restaurants. Overlooks waterfront and marina.

“Dissappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Barely any shops....it looks a lot larger on the map. You can walk through the entire area in 5 minutes and be done.

Pickering Wharf is a nice place to walk around. There are many shops and restaurants here. The restaurants are right on the water and provide awesome views and great food.

“Great shopping and eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

If you're into aniques or good food, this is the place. Sit by the water and watch the boats. Close to the rest of downtown Salem and parking is available.
