Nice pub with lots of TVs, friendly staff and nice menu selection. We were able to watch several sporting events from our table.

Bob could not have been anymore accommodating to our large group on a very busy night and we couldn’t be more appreciative! Food and service was great and it was a wonderful night for us all. Thank you.

I think Mac and Bob's has been a part of the Salem restaurant scene for a long time. A large dining room with a large sports bar and in nice weather a large patio for dining--breakfast, lunch and dinner. The large menu (there is a theme here) offers a wide range of choices. My husband always opts for the mac and cheese with crab (it is really good) and this last visit I had the pimento cheese hamburger (cooked perfectly rare). Wait staff was great. My husband had the "key lime" pie which he declared to be both authentic and perfect. They offer an amazing breakfast and lunch menu as well (and the food is always good). There is a large bar (there I go again) and an abundance of televisions all tuned to different stations and sports. It is a fun place. Has a college town feel. Very family friendly, but also a fun place for a date (whether you are 16 or 60). We like this place. Good value and good food.
