On a not so busy early fall afternoon in October, we arrived in Salem, opting to take the chance on having lunch in a restaurant which once lost our reservations for dinner.

Nothing fancy nor over-priced here; if you want fancy, go to Nathaniel's or Rockefella's, This is pub-grub in a little out-of-the-way place on Derby Street, which is more frequented by locals than tourists.

Our friends LOVE this place and wanted to share it with us. The food was good and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is like any other bar/restaurant but was a nice stop after walking around.

Ordered a hamburger, fries, grilled cheese and mac & cheese. They were out of hamburgers and fries. So we ordered 2 hot dogs and onion rings. Food was good, but limited choices.
