Strolling through Salem on New Year's Eve we found this brewery after we had just visited one down the street. Score again! My date loves beer and loved the fact that he got to visit two breweries in one night. This was a more city feel more industrial look to it and the servers were very helpful and knowledgeable about... More

This place is always packed but we have found the food really great, the staff helpful, friendly and the atmosphere exactly right in line with Salem. A good place for tourists or locals alike!

We visted this weekend and enjoyed 3 or 4 different craft brews (I loved the IPA's) ! Our server (Shila) was great and took great care of us. We had sandwiches and enjoyed ourselves very much. It is clean and spacious ! We will come back here again soon for sure !

We visited Salem Beer Works recently on a Saturday night. We've previously eaten at the sister restaurants in Boston and Lowell, so already were familiar with the brand. Parking was a bit of a challenge, as it always is in downtown Salem, but we found a spot at a meter that was free after 6pm around the corner. Despite a... More

It seemed like a place designed for college students, but it's not. We brought our kids for a brunch and we all loved it. The patio is great. Inside is comfy and cozy. The location is terrific, right off Washington Street. The menu is diverse and worked for all of us. The service was really good. A definite favorite. Its... More

This was my first time. My friend has been a few times. We went for lunch and I was not disappointed. I had the fish and chips (really good). Had an awesome server, wish I could remember her name. Only complaint I had was I didn't care for the slaw that came with lunch, and I love a good slaw.... More

Didn't eat but had one of their light beers. Delicious. All brewed on site. The rest of my party ate and they said the food was great. Very extensive menu. Prices are good. Wait staff very attentive.

We went to the beer garden on the night before Halloween, 2016. It was super packed and it took a while to get a seat. I had the Redeemer IPA, which has a strong malt to it, but was totally perfect for a chilly night. My wife had a Customs House IPA and was not a fan. For food, I... More

Good range of beers including a couple of float choices. Food was good. We were able to sit outside in mid October and enjoy the Fall sun. Service spot on
