The first clue should have been that the place was practically empty. Mediocre food, fair service. Didn't remember that it had been a chain restaurant in Illinois years ago and closed. Much better places to eat just steps away. Does have a good harbor view...More

Dog was ok on the patio. Good wine list. Had the cod tacos. They were good but tortilla was a little undercooked. Blue crab sandwich was excellent. Sweet potatoe fries were waffle cut. Fast service.

Our Airbnb host recommended this location to us and it was an excellent first meal in Salem. We ate lunch out on the patio and enjoyed the humidity free air. The view and food were excellent. Will definitely stop there again!

excellent view right on the water. We ate outside. The food was delicious and came quickly. However we waited close to a full HOUR after we were finished eating to get our bill. We had to ask for it twice and it was still a...More
