“Nice Meal”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Ate dinner as a party of 10. Good service. Good food. Least favorite item was basil chicken sandwich. It was a little bland. Asked for more basil mayo. Calzones were good!

“Eat somewhere else”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Here's the summary: Restaurant Impossible needs to visit this place. Dirty (dust on the windowsills that looks like it has been there for awhile. Dark, dingy, and the food was very mediocre. I expected more from this restaurant that is in the the charming town of Salem.

“Don't bother...”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

This is a local hangout where regulars are treated well but others not so much. We stopped while on a trip. Ordered food. Our waitress talked to some locals for several minutes and then guess what...our food came out cold. My wife's cheese fries had globs of unmelted cheese. I had a Caesar salad swimming in dressing. Pub atmosphere. Can be avoided.

“Avoid it like the plague.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

If I could give it negative stars I would. Not clean, flies everywhere. Husband had the cheese and vegetable panini. Since when are tomato, lettuce and cucumber considered "roasted vegetables"? The cucumber still had the skin on it an the lettuce was yellow. It was disgusting. I tried the French onion soup. Covered in some tasteless plastic cheese. The whole meal was horrible. Drink was strong, probably so you don't realize how terrible the food is.
The menu is huge which always worries me cause how can all that be fresh?
Avoid this place like the plague.
