Salem has attracted some very strange people. The proprietors of The Naumkeag Ordinary are not among them. We had the Cheese board Meat board combination. The cheese came from a local shop, the pork belly was unctuous and tasty and the star of the board. Together with a Caesar Salad it was a prefect light meal. The owners were delightful... More

Amazing food! We got the cheese plate, the gravalox, and the cubano and we ate every bit. Gourmet food in a relaxed, romantically lit atmosphere. Music was also great as well as our friendly waiter. Will be going back about a billion times!

We first tried to eat at some other more popular restaurants in the area, however as they were all full we ended at Naumkeag. The staff was very friendly and they did their best to satisfy our needs. As a small restaurant the menu was rather limited, but the food was excellent! I really recommend the beetroot salad!!

My wife and I noticed that Naumkeag Ordinary pops up often on Open Table, and one day we decided to give it a try. It was pretty good overall. We had no issues with reservations or being seated, as it was just after lunch and was quiet. Like most of the City of Salem, parking is a challenge, but there... More

Friendly & welcoming staff open the doors to delcious well prepared food. We started with the mixed green salad that is light and delicious with a hint of sweet lemon zest that was delightful. We each had a burger, which they will double or triple if your desire. They were cooked perfectly & came with thin cut tasty fries. There... More

Interesting food and nice beer. You can feel yourself like an insider here. Maybe it is a little bit expensive for this type of town, but good vibes are there.

We popped in for food and a few drinks on a Friday afternoon with our kids. Service was excellent; friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Great choice of beers, nice decor and my food was gorgeous.

The people are very nice, the restaurant is nicely decorated and the atmosphere is warm. The food was hit or miss. The wine and beer were good as were the selections. The prices were not bad for what the restaurant seems to be aiming for and its location, an elegant bar/restaurant experience in a trendy area of Salem. There could... More

First off, I trust TA reviews to point me in the right direction. I was planning to go to Turner's seafood, but as we turned onto that street, Turner's lost power. Alas, we winged it and ended up walking over to Naumkeag. The place looks cool and the people are very nice. We ordered an appetizer; the calamari. This was... More
