These guys are closed for good. The food was ok but the bar smelled weird and during the summer you could often spy a rat running through the sea walls or decking. Hope the new owners clean things up a bit.

Stopped there and waited way too long for the orders which were the special of the day. Food was good, waiter was friendly but kitchen was slow and it was not busy.

Nice restaurant with a view of the Harbor. I had prime rib, baked potato & asparagus - fair, but not the best I've had. Lobster roll looked delicious and was loaded with lobster. Others seemed to enjoy their entrees, as well.

Victoria Station Restaurants were an important part of my youth! We ate in them regularly as teenagers, then as adults we went to them! Some were better than others, but always a good experience! I had basically forgotten about them until I saw this one!...More

I'm from the Midwest... we get frozen fish mostly. There are some pond-raised catfish but nothing too fancy. I appreciated all the great seafood I had in the Boston/Salem area but this place had the best fried haddock. It was so perfect! The salad bar...More

We had lunch here and felt the clam chowder was really good. Especially on a day that rained. Service was excellent and the view from the restaurant is an additional plus. Though we only had the chowder it appeared that this restaurant was a place...More

Eating seafood right on the water was the right choice even for a cool day! The clam chowder was incredible, fish and chips divine and the service was top notch. Highly recommend you go here when in Salem!
