“Great for drinks and friends”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

After a long day, did not want to go to a more formal restaurant, so we hit the Tavern at the Hawthorne Hotel where we were staying. Food turned out great, very good local brews and very friendly staff.

“Fun, Fun, Fun!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

A little too much fun was had here! We had an absolute blast! The bartender got a bit rude in the last hour or two they were open, I imagine from dealing with over the limit folks. Regardless, my friends and I had a blast.

“Open late!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We wanted some grub following our night walking tour and this was one of the few places serving after 9 in our area. We had burgers and they were quite good! Nice wine/beer and good service.

“Great Casual Fare In Lovely Setting”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Tavern on The Green offers a lovely, warm ambience in the beautiful, historic, Hawthorne Hotel. I love coming here for a healthy, fresh lunch. The service is very friendly and attentive. It is a great place to relax with friends. I also like the bar area, very affable bartenders. A very good find in the heart of Salem!

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Having been 13 years since our last visit to Salem, the Tavern on the Green yet again was a great treat. Hidden in the Hawthorne Hotel, you feel like you are in another world. The food is amazing and the service is superb! You are never rushed yet you're taken care of. The nachos are amazing!!
