We traveled to Salem State University to visit our grandson and to take him out for the day. After touring the charming and whimsical outdoor shopping area, we went to this delightful restaurant situated right on the water. We were lucky enough to score a window table and had a great view of the many boats , docked there. The service was excellent , the food choices numerous, and the atmosphere was friendly. Our party ordered a variety of items from the chicken wings, coconut shrimp appetizers, to the fish and chips and autumn salad with grilled chicken. The only negative comment I could make is that the food took a very long time to reach us. But when it arrived, it was hot and delicious! We will certainly return on our next visit.

This is one of our favourite places to eat in Salem, and in fact, it's the first restaurant we eat at while in town. Just LOVE the salad bar. Everything is so fresh & bountiful and with many different selections. Your taste buds will NOT be bored. This is the first place we tried Steak Tips years ago, and luckily we had a server on one of our visits that gave us the "secret recipe" for making perfect steak tips at home. All entrees come with homemade marble rye bread (made in house and yummy!). If you are into adventure...try a Wharf Rat (a local drink)..it will knock you on your buttkus, but it's good...it sort of sneaks up on ya. Prices are reasonable and the service is good. Their bar (Vic's Boathouse) is attached to the restaurant and you can drink & dine inside or out (weather permitting). If you eat outside you will have a lovely view of the harbour. It can be most romantic at twilight:) The bar offers nightly entertainment which you can find the list of on their website. We've been going to this restaurant for 10 plus years, and it still delivers quality food & service.

Tuesday September 24 found us in Salem after applying for our marriage license in Saugus. Elyse waited on us and on discovering our intentions to marry brought a fabulous dessert after a wonderful meal...best haddock and most tender prime rib ever. Entire staff celebrated our upcoming wedding...we are returning on October 18th to dine after the ceremony. Can't wait!

We went on a Friday night around 5pm, and there were very few people there for dinner at that time. My husband had prime rib which was very tender, and I had baked shrimp. The shrimp were much larger than I expected and very tasty. The salad bar was good. We then enjoyed a walk around the marina and by the Freedom sailing ship as the sun was setting. An enjoyable evening.

Visited this restaurant as part of a wedding party. Catered meal was excellent, service was friendly and eager to accommodate. Seafood dishes awesome....chicken a little tough.
