This place is awful. Not just the food... everything about it is awful: consistently loud and obnoxious. It seems that the who's who of Salem's low-life are drawn to it. Alcohol emboldened drunkards idle away hours while loudly engaging a game of one-ups-manship as to...More

When 6 mozzarella sticks cost more than a 12 yr. Single Malt Scotch. $11 for Microwaved cheese. $12 for Microwaved nachos $6 for Microwaved fries. By there menu has all those items 4-5 dollars cheaper. Don't go in October. Place is a joke

Not bad for food that taste like it came straight from the microwave. Got the chowder and it was the best progresso soup has to offer. The lobster roll was served on a hot dog bun. I’m not sure if that’s how they do it...More
