I received wonderful service from Brent and Allison. The fried oysters, haddock sandwich, and the bread pudding knocked my socks off.

Dear Eric C,

Thank you for your lovely review of Tavern on the Green, the Hawthorne Hotel’s pub-style restaurant. I’m glad that you had such an enjoyable experience dining with us, and appreciate you sharing specific menu recommendations with fellow Trip Advisor readers—our haddock is purchased locally and very often, the oyster recipe is one that our chef learned when he worked in Charleston, and the bread pudding is certainly delicious!

We hope to see you again soon.

Warm regards,

Juli Lederhaus

We enjoyed sitting on high backed cushioned chairs at at a lovely table at the Tavern on the Green. This lovely wood paneled pub with fresh flowers on the tables and an impressive bar is a cozy spot to have a bowl of delicious chowder, a fresh salad or even a full entree. My fiance enjoyed the haddock sandwich which was fried perfectly and came to the table still splattering
from the pan... the fish was tender and perfectly cooked. He ordered the cucumber salad that can be ordered to accompany the sandwich and it was crisp and dressed with a sweet tangy vinegar. I tried the turkey with cranberry and spinach sandwich on whole wheat bread. It was satisfactory but the sweet potato fries stole the show. Delish. Loved the Ipswich Ale on draught-- it came freezingly cccccold and went so well with the rest of the lunch. Tess was our server and she was upbeat, friendly and there to make sure our lunch was perfect. We'll return again maybe for and early happy hour.

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.
