Tavern on the Green is located within the Hawthorne Hotel and is the more casual of the two restaurants in the hotel. Nice wood panelling with high back chairs makes for a relaxed atmosphere probably one of my favourites. Food is very good and quantities are substantial, service is prompt and friendly. Really look forward to dining here - recommended!

DKeith, thank you for dining in the Tavern. We are guessing you've tried our loaded nachos? They are a favorite of many!

CDCS, although we thank you for posting a review about our burgers, we think you may have the Tavern inside the Hawthorne Hotel confused with another local restaurant. Our "straight up" burger is delicious, but we do not offer outdoor seating. A four-top by a roaring fire, yes, but patio seats, no! We just want to make sure TripAdvisor readers don't wonder what the Hawthorne did with the outdoor tables should they visit. Glad you enjoyed your visit to Salem, though!

Got the cod/crab burger sandwich. Very good! The fries were also very good. This was an enjoyable lunch with good service and although not a big place, it gave you a great comfortable feeling with the fabulous wood. We will be back!

We visited the Hawthorne Hotel last night for a one night stay. We met another couple for dinner at Tavern on the Green. Jules (spelling?) served us. He was exceptional. This is not a word I use lightly. He was warm, friendly and very helpful with menu selection. What really made him stand out was his easy conversational manner. He was professional, funny and really just someone we enjoyed. He introduced himself upon our seating. I remembered his name after the evening was over. I turned to my husband and said I have to write about him!

PAJ44, thank you for sharing your experience at the Tavern and for mentioning Jules. His enthusiasm is genuine - he truly loves what he does and never tires of chatting with guests. It is often a challenge to find hospitality-driven professionals and the Hawthorne is thankful to have such a talented and dedicated Tavern team. We look forward to hosting you again.

We were told about this restaurant from friends. They were correct in recommending this place to eat while in Salem. The food and service were perfect. The casual atmosphere is appreciated. Our server, Matt was very attentive and friendly. Steve's chowder was excellent as well as my wife's salmon. My blackened haddock was wonderful.
