My husband and I were super hungry when we dined here. The menu is big and has all the selections you would expect in a seafood restaurant. You will leave satisfied, as the food is tasty and portions are large enough.

There are limited offerings for lunch in Salem. That said, only one restaurant was needed as Turners provides great service, selection and quality for a quick or lengthy lunch.
