    Fantastic dinner with friends. We hadn’t been there for quite some time….we thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ordered. Fantastic oysters - very fresh and full, excellent seafood salad (although it lacked the mussels that were in the description) and grilled octopus. For entrees we had baked stuffed lobster, sesame crusted tuna and crab stuffed haddock. Every dish was cooked perfectly and very good.

The restaurant has a great layout, providing a cozy and intimate dining experience. The lighting was just right, creating a relaxed and enjoyable ambiance. Now, let's talk about the food! The menu at Rivalry is a delightful fusion of flavors and offers a wide range of options. From appetizers to main courses, each dish was beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. The ingredients used were fresh and of high quality, which made a noticeable difference in every bite. The service at Rivalry was exceptional.

    Brunch at Ledger, as always excellent! I strayed from the usual three dishes I alternate between and ordered the pastrami has with sunny side up eggs. It was delicious. The service was attentive, friendly and professional. Ledger never disappoints!

Discover Salem

The historic city of Salem is a great place to find a bite to eat. A coastal city with a downtown that is cradled by the ocean, Salem's food scene starts with a multitude of fresh seafood options. Enjoy raw oysters, sushi, or lobster rolls while you look out over the water. Of course, you can always warm up with a big bowl of New England clam chowder. There are also plenty of quaint bistros and fun gastropubs to choose from. If you're looking for something a little more exotic, head to an American fusion restaurant or an authentic international restaurant.
