Our 10 person party (ages 11 to 48) had a wonderful dinning experience at Scratch Kitchen. Our waiter, Jason, was quick and personable. Loved the food choices.

Had breakfast here on our first day. Food was really good with a large variety of items to choose from. Prices were very reasonable for the area. Tried to go on our second day, but they weren't open at 9 am on a Saturday.

Great little restaurant with yummy food! My sisters and I ate lunch at the Scratch kitchen on Derby Street while visiting Salem. We made a very good choice! The food was homemade, from “scratch” of course, and the service was outstanding. We had a waiter...More
