We went to salem for October and all its glory in an awsome town. Had a great day with loys of wonderful food. This place is just cool, the menu is deep and food delicious. I had the prime rib wrap and my lady had one of the burgers. We love the ambiance of the patio and people watching while dining. Thanks for a great time y'all

Came here for dinner after a ghost tour around 11pm. I am 23 from CT and sometimes get mistaken for under 21. The bouncer at the door nearly folded my ID in half trying to make sure it was real. That was my first negative impression. No wait to eat and our waitress was attentive. My friend and I ordered nachos and chicken tenders. The tenders were decent (we got the honey sriracha flavor) they were crispy and have a good amount of sauce but the place was sloppy and it didn't come with any kind of dipping sauce, carrots or celery. The nachos were a huge portion but the ratio was way off. The entire place was filled with chips and the cheese was VERY scarce. I love cheesy nachos but these were sad. We paid extra for guac and were given about a teaspoon sized. Not the worst meal I've had but a little disappointing. I would come back here for the atmosphere and drinks.

My boyfriend and I had lunch here on our first day in Salem. My chicken sandwich and his burger was delicious. We also had a seasonal pumpkin cider that was amazing. I would definitely go back and check out other items on the menu!

With the crowd you'd think the food was the best thing you ever had. We were seated, waited over 20mins for anyone to notice us, finally got our drinks, 20MORE Mins later somebody finally took our order. Waited for our appetizer which was WRONG! Got our entree. No utensils. By time we got our utensils food was ice cold. Will NEVER return again. Food was mediocre at best

The blackened chicken pasta was delicious! Quick service even though they were packed. Lots of good local brews.
