Busick is only open for breakfast & lunch. There is usually a wait, up to 30 minutes or more. Not very big but they do move people through. Not the Portland small restaurant where people sit at take up a table while they read the paper. Lot's of interesting choices. I went Mexican and it was great. The wife had... More

I had breakfast here with family on a Sunday in August 2016. We arrived at about 8:45 and were able to find an open table. By 9:30, when we finished, a queue had formed. Glad we came when we did. Given Busick's excellent TA rating, I was looking forward to a great experience. Looking back, I would say it was... More

Fabulous restaurant and a personal favorite of mine for years!!! The food is always good and we'll presented. It's a great meeting place for friends to gather and is frequently so busy that there is a waiting list. Hang in there, it's worth the wait. A favorite of mine is the Green Eggs and Ham served with a toasted rustic... More

We were excited to try this after all the great reviews we have read. We were totally disappointed and wondered if it was indeed the right restaurant we went to! My husband had the chicken fried steak which was actually more like a burger in gravy and not that tasty, and I ordered the eggs benedict with salmon and the... More

This place is all around a yummy filling restaurant. The most amazing salmon omelette, the pancakes are to die for and the atmosphere is very comforting. Prices are perfect and worth what you receive. Service is fast and friendly

I used to think that I was a bit biased since I worked at this restaurant over 20 years ago that this was the best place in Salem for breakfast and lunch hands down . But years later, it still runs true. This place is it! After all these years, my family and I still go back here , and... More

Urban location and vibe. Hubby had pancake which he said was great. I review every breakfast place by their biscuits and gravy. That is my measure of a good breakfast joint. I was disappointed. Truthfully the menu did say "biscuit and gravy". Not sausage gravy. Having said that, there was no trace of sausage or even sausage flavor. I also... More

Good food and lots of it when you join the Salem crowds at Busick Court. Big variety of munu choices, too, especially in the way of creative omelets. Mid-range on price, but excellent service. They can, and do, serve lots of happy folks every morning; we feel lucky to spot an empty table!

The restaurant is located downtown. There is some metered parking and some free-3 hour parking. Meter maids do make the rounds, so make sure that you feed the meters. The food is home style cooking. Biscuits and gravy. French toast. Omlets. Wide variety to choose from. They have tables that seat four. If your party is larger, they'll scoot a... More

I heard good things about this place, but when I took my family for a breakfast, I was quite disappointed with poor service and even worse food quality. Will not be back.
