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.

Damn good pizza no matter where you come from. And they delivered to our hotel room what could be better.

there's nothing like "New York Pizza" to a New Yorker, but at The Engine House the pizza comes close. Service is friendly, price very good, walking distance to attractions and the food is excellent

This is hands down the best pizza over Er had! I love it here. We stop her every time we come to Salem! The crust is crisp and the cheese is plentiful!! Love it!

We stopped to eat lunch here because the map on my phone said it was inexpensive, however a calzone was $30. My husband and kids liked the calzone, but I thought it was terrible. It seemed like all bread and green peppers.

Aside from the fact that it was probably 80 degrees inside the establishment... To the point all of us in my group was sweating, even after removing some layers.... The service here was mediocre. They never asked if we needed anything or collected our pizza pan or anything. I found it amusing they had a tip line on their credit... More

My husband and I came for a casual dinner. It is counter service here and you seat yourself in the various booths and high top tables. For a Friday evening, it wasn't too busy, but it did seem like they were doing a lot of takeout and delivery. We ordered a Greek salad with chicken ($9) and a cheese pizza... More
