Stopped for lunch on a saturday afternoon. It wasn't busy. Its was clean. We had friendly service. I ordered the mushroom garlic burger. The garlic was burnt tasting which made the whole burger taste that way.

Decent place to go in Salem. We went during mid-week, easy seating. Servers were nice and checked on our large group often. Would go back.

Went to dinner here with my spouse last night. Sat in the bar area as it’s quieter. 15 minutes before our waiter /bartender even noticed us. There were only 4 booths with people. Food was so, so. The real kicker was when we left. We...More
