We enjoyed our lunch so much. The food was prepared well, good portions, and price. The atmosphere was welcoming. Most of all we enjoyed our waitress/bartender Allison. She is outgoing and helpful. We enjoyed talking with her and returned later that night for drinks just so that we could visit with her some more!!

We ate at the Tavern a lot while our stay in Salem at the Hawthorne Hotel. This beautiful place is located right in the hotel! Which was awesome and very convenient. As soon as we walked in we felt the warmth of the restaurant. It has beautiful fireplaces and very comfortable seating. The staff was so friendly and take care of us right away. The food was to die for! Happy Hour I had stuffed shrimp and they were the best stuffed shrimp I ever had! The cocktails were hands down out of this world. I LOVE this place! You need to stop here when you come to Salem. We will return again and again when we come to Salem.

Dear Stephanie H,

Thank you for your review of the Hawthorne’s pub-style restaurant, Tavern on the Green. As you obviously have come to know our pub-style restaurant well, we appreciate you highlighting many of the great things the Tavern has to offer, including its warm atmosphere and cozy fire, great cocktails, and delicious food!

We stopped in for a late lunch after visiting the Peabody Essex Museum. The tavern is in a hotel a short block down from the museum. A fire was glowing in the fireplace and comfortable arm chairs at tables for 2 and 4 filled the room. It was a Friday and there were tables of 50-60 year old women and some couples. Bar was nice but does not fill/ define the room. Menu had a good selection of salads, sandwiches and burgers as well as full dinners. We enjoyed a basket of warm rolls as we reviewed the menu. selected Burger and Fish sandwich - both excellent. Wonderful coleslaw. Delicious chocolate brownie with ice cream topped off meal. Highly recommend for all. Children would do well here. Reasonably priced for nice meal in lovely setting.

The service and staff are absolutely professional, while being warm and friendly at the same time. I always feel as though I am part of the Hawthorne Hotel family. The food is always excellent, with a wonderful menu for all appetites. I love the warmth and comfort of the fire place on a cold winters day, and enjoy relaxing with a book while having lunch.
