Not necessarily the most friendly bartender or waitresses in town, but by far one of the greatest cheeseburgers I've ever had. Great appetizers, great steak tip salad and phenomenal burgers. The area's a little dicey but the bar is low cost and high value.

I have been to Major's a number of times. Have never been disappointed with the food. (Great steak tips!!!). Service has been good, although did experience a long wait one time, not sure why as the place wasn't that busy. Other issue was there was a server there who was not friendly at all. We had him a few times.... More

I am visiting Salem with my girlfriend as we speak. Just tried to bring my business into this bar and was refused service because my licence is from Connecticut and not Mass. This bar is located in a very touristy area of Salem and it boggles my mind that they would refuse service to anyone visiting from other states in... More

Every time I went to Salem, I would always stop in Majors. Great Food and Great Drinks. We were there at Halloween 2015 and had a lot of fun with friends and new friends. The reason I am giving a bad review is the staff. The girls bartending were rude, like we were bothering them. We ordered wings that took... More

Having just moved down the street, I stopped in here to check it out. Had a beer, chatted with a local....came back two days later.....and a couple days after that. Small, old school, no-frills place, sassy bartenders, really good (like surprisingly delicious) bar-style food---their steak tips are awesome!!--and a small but decent beer selection. They also make a very good... More
