My parents and I were visiting someone at Salem Hospital who suggested we go for lunch. The place looks super sketchy on the outside but has a great cozy atmosphere inside. Staff is super nice and the menu looked good. I got baked mac & cheese with steak tips. I could not believe how good the steak tips were. My... More

Not a drive by thought it may look like one. They have daily specials . Their steak tips are out of this world good. Rip are to die for . One of our favorite places to go for girls night out.

If you like off the beaten path, neighborhood pubs, and I do, then this is a great place to go. The food was good the staff was friendly, attentive but not in your face. It was a great place to meet after work for quick bite to eat and a couple of drinks and to catch up with friends. We... More

We've driven by here many times but kept going as it looked like a bar. Surprised to find delicious burgers, steak tips, and small pizzas inside. Good, quality food and lovely, attentive service from Devon. She made our visit the best!

This joint is a local watering hole, so don't expect a chain restaurant experience. The bar staff is pleasant and helpful, but if it gets busy, please be patient. The burgers are always freshly hand made, and they are $2 on Monday nights with a pickle and potato chips: toppings 50 cents extra each. The freshly cut fries are heavenly,... More

Cute enough bar with seats. Potato skins were OUTSTANDING!!! Burgers were just OK. Onion soup burger of the month wasn't so great. Sauce was not hot on it and tasted only so-so. My pub burger was tasty though. You might have to chase down the bar staff to give them your order if you are at the seats and not... More

Looks a little sketchy from the outside but it's a neighborhood family friendly bar/restaurant. Prices are great for extra large portions. I grew up in the area but since moves away. I had never gone in when I lived there because of the outside appearance. While visiting, if it weren't for a good friend i probably would not have frequented... More

This is a great local dive-ish bar. Convenient for people who live in the area but not centrally located in downtown Salem. A little bit off the beaten path. Food is great and prices aren't bad at all. Check it out next time you are in Salem, MA.
