Description: Annettes is located in the historic Kingwood Building. Originally built in 1928 to be a market place. The building has adopted many occupants through it's time. Annette has given the historic building the respect it deserves with a dramatic makeover inside and out. Many people still remember the old market place and can't believe this is the same building from way back when.

“Good food, huge portions, fast service”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I had heard nothing but good things about this restaurant so we decided to give it a try one day for a late lunch/early dinner. After hearing how crowded it can be, we were surprised to find it relatively empty and super quiet. After looking over their expansive menu with so many options to choose from, I chose the rib eye sandwich and my husband had the Texas melt. The food came out super fast and super hot, and the portions were huge. I wasn't expecting a full 8 oz. steak for the sandwich and it was probably one of the best I've had in Salem. It was well seasoned with their blackening seasoning, and cooked to perfection Their onion rings were also some of the best in the area, but all the food was just too much and had to take it home.

We were enticed for a couple of their cheesecake shooters which were these adorable little cheesecake dishes for only $1.50 each. it was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal. I am really looking forward to trying them for breakfast or at least, to try some of their breakfast dishes.

“Home cooking”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

This place does not look like much from the outside, inside you'll find great food and pretty good service. Everything is fresh. Really good salads. They do have outside seating as well. Come hungry as the portions are huge.

“A wonderful Surprise !”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We found this great place in West Salem by accident and boy were we surprised when we ordered and discovered the food here is fantastic! Everyone was kind and attentive and friendly. Food is exceptional! I kid you not! And the prices were more than fare since we received a substantial amount on our plates. You don't want t miss this resturant!

“Excellent Food and Plenty of Options”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Plenty of options on the menu. The vegetarian scramble was very good and very large. The coffee was quite good as well. Service was good, and seating is cozy with small town feel. It is very popular on the weekends, so anticipate at least a 1/2 hour wait for a medium size party.
