Approaching the establishment we noticed how well maintained it was. We entered and was greeted by a very friendly and accommodating hostess. We were waited on promptly by friendly waitstaff as well. The food was magnificent!! Will return for sure!

I hadn't been here in years, primarily because my wife likes fancier places. But I returned with a friend, and found great prices, good portions and a fine beer selection. The decor is nothing special, and the service was okay. But my wallet was happy...More

There is a lot of outdoor seating and in the summer that is awesome cause the people watching on Salem is top notch. But the food is average at best and the beer isn't craft, its generic, think bud light or blue moon.

We had a great lunch here with our 2 children. The kids menu had a lot of good options. The food arrived quickly and the service was excellent. I highly recommend.
