  • If you like loud bars with lots of people standing around then this is your place. Don't expect to eat here on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
  • Dinner, street side after work.... With the lady
  • Ladies: watch out for the shameless broad who is a hostess here, she'll blatantly flirt with your man right in front of you!
  • Try the Big Dig Fries
  • Nice but overrated.
  • Great place to hangout with old or new friends. Loud, fun atmosphere and great fishbowls and wide variety of beer.
  • Drinks and sports on TV; stop complaining, nerds.
  • Giant beer selection.
  • Do yourself a favor and come here for the brunch buffet!
  • Tavern in the Square has great food and ambiance in downtown Salem. Eat inside or out, watch TV, or just socialize by the bar! A definite stop in on your trip to Salem!
  • Go for the food, stay for the Colin Fields
  • Nothing like a cold beer in a HOT glass!
  • They call this place the tits! Been dying to come here forever!
  • Maple sweet potato fries are heaven! And make sure to try a pitcher of "The Big Papi"...awesome summer drink!
  • Great all you can eat brunch. Definitely have the Ros Sangria pitcher.
  • TVs are muted, not good for live sports
  • Decent brunch buffet on Sundays
  • Food is delicious here. There's a wide selection of beer but while I was there they were sold out of most. Food and drinks are a bit pricey.
  • Service was awful. Food was awful. I'd avoid this place!
  • Only been here once but food was awful and service wasn't good.
