My very favorite spot in Salem- especially nice in the summer when you can sit outside overlooking the water and lighthouse or in the winter in front of their log fireplace. Food is always on point and they have the best salad bar around- I often just go for that and soup- perfect.

This is right off the wharf, nice spot! We had the baked clams which were amazing! I had a lobster roll which was good and my husband had the fish and chips. Great food, good service, would definitely go back!

We were visiting family in Salem who chose Victoria Station for the view and it was beautiful but a might chilly to sit outside just yet so we sat by the window enjoying the view and the beautiful lighting. They do not take reservations for outside...what is with that? Took advantage of the salad bar which was OK at best.... More

We could not find parking anywhere on the local streets and were afraid to park in any lots because of towing signs everywhere. I thought I had eaten here before, so I made reservations for 7:30. We were seated promptly but I soon realized I had mistaken this place for the place across the street. Since we had already purchased... More

Beautiful location, great food. Reservations are taken 1 hour before arrival. The Boathouse has an open seating, and we were lucky to grab a nice table there, overlooking the water. Service was on a slower side, but we were not in rush. Had salad bar and salmon with mashed potatoes. Was delicious.

Our first night in Salem a bewitched store clerk recommended this place for dinner. Amazing seafood and gorgeous environment. The service was a tad slow but it didn't hinder the experience. The salad bar setup is a bit confusing but we got over it quickly. Outdoor patio dining was breath taking

We got there around one after we went to the House of the Seven Gables. When we arrived we were told that their was a 20 minute wait. After twenty minutes the hostess told us that if would be another ten minutes. Most of the tables in the restaurant were empty and weren't filled for the entire time that we... More
