I asked for My burger med-rare without mayo, missed on both, but it was good tasting. My son’s pizza seemed weird, since they have a pizza oven, but it could have been an Avant garde interpretation on sliced baguette. My late was really spectacular. Then...10 minutes later the same busser brought our same order again, with a puzzled look on her face. We sent her on to wherever. Then 10 minutes later she came back again with a pizza, which we accepted with a smile. It was a runny cold pizza, almost like a pizza from the frozen section. Nice room nice people, maybe it was an off day.More

We eat out 2 to 3 times a week. We decided to give this place a try. The food was terrible and the service was worse. We left wondering where was the manager of this place, if anyone actual performs quality control and how a...cook serves and send to a customer the food they served us. Regarding service, our server had 3 tables and there were other servers chit-chatting at the bar and using there cell phones, but one of us had to get up and go to the bar to request a glass of water because our server was missing in action. Do yourself a favor, do not visit this establishment.More

This was our first visit, and we ended up eating at the bar because we just decided to go and had no reservations. The margaritas that Keenan made were excellent! They have a great Happy Hour menu. We shared a salad and pizza and that...was perfect, but there were many things on the menu I would have liked to try. The restaurant was full and bustling, but it was very easy to carry on a conversation.More

Great place for a yummy meal! Terrific pizzas! Keenan was our awesome (and handsome!) bartender. His margaritas are THE BEST!

Before full service this place ran like a well oiled machine. Now its a disaster. No host at 3:00 but a sign that says "wait for host ", almost all the tables dirty, floor dirty, great young lady bartender doing her best to do Everything!...Open kitchen staff not wearing gloves or seen washing hands. Server scolded kitchen for not assisting clients wanting gelato. When new staff arrived they were slow to help. No sense of urgency and no Mgr in view. Food not as good as before either. Last chance not returning. Very sadMore

The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the BEST margaritas ever! Seriously, so good! The bartender, Misty, was attentive and fun to chat with and very good at making drinks. We are excited to go back for dinner...because the menu looks fantastic.More

We came for the food. We are probably a bit too old for this place but we enjoyed it immensely. Noisy but an "energy" filled place. Good food, great bar. Nice to find this kind of place in downtown Salem.

Delicious lunch with four friends. I had grilled Brussel sprouts with a tasty sauce plus a cup of black bean with spicy sausage soup. BLTA was very good according to a friend. Stringy fries were nice and crisp. Also a pizza with pears was really...good. Server was friendly but busy and it was after 1 pm.More

This was a nice find. I really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the interior decor. My server was super helpful. The house salad was nice and the Phat Mikes pizza hit the spot. I really enjoyed hanging there.
