We have visited the Salem City
Cafe a number of times for lunch, dinner, and special events. It's a great place. The food is excellent, the staff are extremely friendly, and the owner is on-site most of the times we've been there. She's really nice and has done a wonderful job with her restaurant. We recommend the Salem City Cafe without any reservations."

Last minute Valentines plans get
changed and instead of 2 of us we are now 8 of us!!! What to do? Italian friends would be joining us! Jumped on open table to see what time we could get into the Salem City Cafe! Great! They could accommodate a large table! Happy hiur would be over at 6 but a table ready for 630 or 7! I'll take it! We enjoyed great crab cake and mussel appetizers and wionderduk homemade gnocchi! Others at our table had steak, chicken Alfredo, and ahi tuna. Each entree was excellent. Food and Service right here in south jersey!!"

Overall Dining Experience was
Excellent but the music was entirely TOO LOUD. Dining couples like to be able to hear each other in conversation."

We had the Tuesday extra value
delight, crab cakes[all crab] and filet] Great amount of food for the price. The crab bisque is the best around."

My friends and I got together for
an evening out at the Salem Cafe. The waitresses and staff were all dressed in Halloween get-up to spur on the spirit of the season. It added much to the festivities. We had a lovely round table so that we could see everyone and had such a great time, we will have to schedule this night out again !"

I had the crab cakes and they were
fantastic. My wife had the Prime Rib and it was perfect with horseradish sauce. The bread and oil could be better. The bread was not warm and the oil tasted a little "off". The service was very slow because of the 1/2 price entree specials had the place packed out. Need to have extra staff when you run a special."

We enjoyed every morsel of our
dinner. My husband loved the meat loaf (best around) and my filet mignon was cooked perfectly (rare). It was one of the best I've ever had. The dessert, a sorbet covered in white chocolate, was a perfect ending for the meal. We have already recommended Salem City Cafe to our friends and will return."

Went to the Salem City café on a
recommendation for dinner. The restaurant is beautiful and décor was nice. T hey had a fajita special but no one got it in our party. We ordered menu items. The crab cakes were good and the pasta good. I don't recommend ordering mixed drinks-we tried 2x and finally settled with a beer. A little expensive for the location but next time we will attempt the happy hour and see."

It's rare in small towns to find a
restaurant where everything comes together so nicely and the decor doesn't involve sports paraphernalia or cow skulls. The drink selection was varied, the food was tasty, and the service was attentive and friendly. We'll definitely be returning."

We attended a special wine pairing
dining experience. We have attended these before and they are wonderful. Michael does an amazing job with the food. It is always spectacular."

I love visiting small Historic
Towns and Salem NJ is one of them. We decided to take a ride to a destination spot for Mother's Day. What a pleasant surprise. The ride there was relaxing and the town was quaint. Looks like it is going through a revitalization and there was a beautiful restaurant Salem City Cafe in downtown Salem. I felt like I was at a restaurant in Philly. Very chic. The owners were very personable and the staff was right on, even though it was a busy day. Brunch was wonderful - lots of choices. Seafood station, omelet station and carving station were available. Food was well prepared. They created a very homey atmosphere and their lunch and dinner menu looks very inviting. Can't wait to return."

detail. Friendly waitstaff. Food was outstanding. Would highly recommend for any occasion."

The food was great. All dishes
were prepared fresh and to order. The only bad comment i have is the live music was way too loud for the dining room. You could not talk across the table without having to raise your voice. Servers could be a little more attentive. Again the food was great! Guess you cant have everything."

My husband and I picked this
restaurant out of the blue and it was fabulous! The cheese teak egg-rolls for an appetizer and my husband was in love with his rare Ahi Tuna. We also shared the Banana's Foster was delicious!"

Manicotti was on the menu, but has
not been available for two weeks. Otherwise, food is quite good. Service is great."
