We had lunch here and felt the clam chowder was really good. Especially on a day that rained. Service was excellent and the view from the restaurant is an additional plus. Though we only had the chowder it appeared that this restaurant was a place...More

Eating seafood right on the water was the right choice even for a cool day! The clam chowder was incredible, fish and chips divine and the service was top notch. Highly recommend you go here when in Salem!
