We love this place. In my opinion it is the best place in downtown Apex. The patty melt is awesome. Have had other dishes and I have been pleased with all of them. Family run. The service and atmosphere are good. It does get crowded on nights and weekends so we try to go early. Nice sports bar tv coverage.... More

For food alone I would give 3 stars at best, my kids love it but it is kind of a greasy griddle style burger joint. The crowd and the neighborly welcoming feel are not to be missed though. Would definitely go again.

Came back for the nachos but they were not nearly as good this time. They seemed to have changed to a different cheese of lesser quality and there was not as much chicken.

This place is always hopping - weekends about 15 minute wait- the staff is so friendly and the food is fresh and delicious! A great place to try different beer on tap as well! Sheila and Doug

We were in Apex on business when we stopped here for lunch! Both of us had taco salads, and we were not disappointed! The beer was cold making it a nice go-along with the great salad! It was football Sunday with lots of fans cheering their team!

Salem Street Pub is located on the main street of downtown Apex. The restaurant looks deceivingly small, but can accommodate many diners. I held a birthday party for my daughter there and was concerned because the restaurant did not accept reservations. The manager, an exceptionally nice man, assured me that he would take care of my party of 18 when... More

Wife and I had not been to Salem Street Pub for wings in quite a while, having had several less-than-great experiences in a row some time back. Tried them again for Wing-Night on a Thursday, and we had excellent wings done to a "T", along with great fries and beer. They're back on the restaurant / pub rotation again.

We have been here twice as a family--once for dinner and once for lunch. We ordered different items each times and were all happy with our meals. The food tasted fresh and was prepared quickly. The staff was also very friendly. The only thing lacking is the size of their alcoholic beverages. The drinks were very inexpensive but tiny and... More

This visit marked trying the last burger on the menu (except the jalapeño spicy burger): Bacon, PB, and honey. I have yet to have a bad burger, including the one today. I love the rotating taps, especially of the local brews. Salem Street Pub is a favorite of the locals!

OK so I love Chili, but I don't like chile with beans. And anyone who know chili knows that beans are not chili. Meat is chili, gees oh whiz. Finding that kind of hearty type of food is not easy around here. But have no fear, Salem Street Pub is here. Yep they have the best dang beanless chili I... More
