wanted a change of pace for dinner after touring a nearby attraction. The pizza was good, we had the chiefs special....not shy with the anchovies which appealed to me. Staff was not engaging but hey its a pizza place. Overall good experience we would return.

Awesome place for pizza! The soda made by them was also great! Place packs up quick around lunch time, so try to plan eating at less popular times.

Best calzones we ever had! We stumbled upon this place and we are so glad we did. The service was great and the young men behind the counter were personal in a good way. We had such a long day and they were exactly what we needed. I highly recommend this place in Salem.

I got pizza here after a ghost walk. It was quiet at that time of night. I'm not sure if he was an owner or just a concerned patron but a nice gentleman showed us were there are to-go containers of cheese, garlic, etc. to take for your pizza!

We have been going to/ ordering from Engine house since we moved here 11 years ago. The pizza is almost always good as well as the chicken fingers. Tues. is kids eat free night which was always a big draw when they were smaller. Still a good place to go. would recommend. :)

We stopped in for a pizza between walking tours. Good pizza and the guys behind the counter were friendly. The young lady? Not so much...

Great pizza, the fire chief special. While waiting for our pizza so many locals came in and ordered lunch. They ate in or took it to go. Just a warm and friendly place. Would return.

A year ago or so (not sure when it switched hands or when it changed) I'd have said this place was a solid 4 or 5 star place. Now it's just about average. The pizza has changed and is nothing special (at least to me and mine). Sad, used to be my favorite pizza in Salem. But all things change.

Thank CMOKeefe
