Stopped in Salem of a job. Saw this place and said why not. Ordered a ham sandwich and that is what I got. Friendly staff. Thick cut ham. Feels like home. What more can I ask for.

This diner is adorable. It would be a really fun place to bring children. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed with the food. I ordered a eggs benedict Florentine. I asked to have the english muffin on the side and they were very accommodating. The...More

I love a diner. And, for months, I was going to this diner. It's nothing fancy, but it's always decent food. The workers are always nice and friendly. The exception: the boss. He yells at his employees, makes random rules, and is simply unpleasant. I...More

This has always been a favorite breakfast spot for us. Yes Salem Diner changed hands, but the food is still better than what you get at the chain places, and is priced way more reasonably. Besides, you get to eat in an original Diner!

I love old dining car diners. This one, apparently used to be great. Went there recently for a mid morning breakfast, after the rush. Pretty worn down. A bit dirty. With new corporate ownership one would think it would at least be clean. No such...More

The atmosphere is tiny and looks like a classic diner. They made what you asked for and you don't wait too long for it. I spent $9 on two eggs, two pancakes, homefries and toast, you would pay double for that at Ihop or Denny's!
