I have been to Tavern in the Square many times, since I moved to Salem in 2010. They recently cut down their menu drastically, so you think it would make the items that survived better, but the food quality dropped. The night atmosphere is targeting the college kids for sure. The drinks are a little over prices, and the food is way over priced.

I do love that the have all the NFL games on Sundays, except the love changing the TVs in the middle of the afternoon games. Also on Sundays they have a $17 brunch, which had some very good items, and some not so good ones,

Also they have a chicken and waffles dish which is very delightful.

Also their outdoor seating, is the one reason I go back there. It is kind of loud being right near a major intersection, but It is really enjoyable.

We ate here for a late lunch/ dinner and were very happy! Huge portions, we all had to take 1/2 back to the hotel with us. Drink orders taken quickly and brought just as fast. We ordered Ahi salad, buffalo Mac and cheese and buffalo chicken sandwich. All were delicious and priced very reasonably especially given the size of the portions! I would definitely eat here again.

Too many great restaurant choices in this area to waste your time on a $12. burger. The burger was okay, service adequate. They do have an outdoor seating area in the good weather, but it's not worth the visit. Try one of the other places

Four of us went to dinner without reservations and were seated quickly. Angie was our server. My sister is Celiac so we needed to make sure that she could safely eat gluten-free. Angie carefully checked things with the chef and we had a very nice meal. Nice selection, great portions and good service.
