“outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

we ended up visiting scratch on our Salem food tour and the experience was amazing. how often does the chef come to your table and tell you about the awesome stuff he prepared for you. The food was fresh and from local vendors which was great if you go the bacon dusted fries are a must and the ham and swiss as simple as it sounds is anything but; this place is a definite stop but pick your time wisely the food is so good they do become packed!

“a MUST for pork lovers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stopped here on our Salem Food Tour with Karen and were thrilled. This place is locally sourced and a must visit while in Salem. The food is great. We wish we had time to eat there again! Delish

“limited menu but good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We came in for a snack before they closed. The restaurant is small but cosy and our waiter was very personable and helpful. The menu is limited - very few options, and because we went in right before closing there were even less, but it wasn't too big of a deal. Also if you like bacon this is the place for you - there's bacon in nearly everything on the menu. Our clam chowder was good but very very thin and with large chunks of bacon (more like ham) and potato thrown in. Not the best I've ever had but the overall experience was pretty good and I'd like to come back, maybe for lunch next time!

“This place is worth it. So good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Amazing food! I didn't try any of the seafood, but the burgers, wings, and fries are to die for! Smaller size restaurant so there will most likely be a wait. The beer selection is also very good and compliments the food well!

“They make a mean salad at this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Good food! This place is closed on Mondays. The prices are rather steep, but the food & service is good. Serves wine & beer. Centrally located in the old part of Salem, it is easy to find. You can check out their food offerings on their website. Happy eating!
