Everything here is made from scratch. So good! The meats are either cured or smoked by them or locally made. The day we went, they were still waiting for their produce, so salads were most likely not available. We were interested in the sandwiches anyways....More

Everything in the sandwich (other than the lettuce) was home made. The bread was delicious with the most incredible tomato relish.

Our 10 person party (ages 11 to 48) had a wonderful dinning experience at Scratch Kitchen. Our waiter, Jason, was quick and personable. Loved the food choices.

Had breakfast here on our first day. Food was really good with a large variety of items to choose from. Prices were very reasonable for the area. Tried to go on our second day, but they weren't open at 9 am on a Saturday.

Enjoyed our lunch. I had the Reuben which came recommended and my son had the egg salad sandwich with bacon Yum! Cookies topped off a lunch that was fun and satisfying

Great little restaurant with yummy food! My sisters and I ate lunch at the Scratch kitchen on Derby Street while visiting Salem. We made a very good choice! The food was homemade, from “scratch” of course, and the service was outstanding. We had a waiter...More

We stopped in for a late lunch on a Friday in September and were one of three tables occupied at the time. The menu was interesting and the food was good but we had to get up three times to ask for things we needed,...More
