If you're looking for a great dinner spot to cap off a day of exploring in Salem, Turner's is a must. It has all the comfort and cuisine of an upscale dining experience without the unnecessary price tag. During our visit, our server gave us amazing recommendations and was incredibly knowledgeable of everything on the menu. The food itself is generously portioned and cooked to absolute perfection; the calamari is some of the best I've ever had, and I kept trying to steal bites of my date's swordfish. The cherry on top: their drinks pack a serious punch. Can't wait to go back!

Every thing was fantastic except the French fries. I expected a steak fry with a lot of potato flavor and instead, nustling up to my delicious haddock were thin, flavorless julienned strips.

Although the food was tasty, it wasn’t served hot. Even after sending back to reheat. Otherwise, the service, ambience and food taste was great.

I have been here several times and the food has always been amazing. The service there has always been amazing. The dining room managers are very attentive and they make sure that everything is taken care of. The woman who seats you is a very moody person, and is in dyer need of emotional intelligence training. She ranges from very pleasant to totally obnoxious. Don’t let her stand in the way of a great meal however.

Everything was great. My only complaint was that they did no publish how much their speciality drinks were. If they had know the prices, I probably wouldn't have bought one and I ordered two at $14 each!
That is officially the most expensive drink I've ever ordered. Although the food prices were reasonable, they kill you on the alcohol. Buyer beware....ask the price before you order. Otherwise, the food, service and ambiance was great!

The best seafood on the Norht Shore. The seafood is always fresh and the service is always outstanding. A must visit if you are in the Salem/Peabody area. The only suggestion I have is to bring back the stuffed shrimp.

They sat us next to the waitress station and the bathroom after giving a reservation a week ahead and the waitress never checked on us. Never refilled our water. And then instead of asking us if we wanted dessert she gave us the check and said we should go to a cookie place down the street. The food was delicious the service was awefull

Nice relaxed atmosphere. Ordered the finnan haddie. Very tasty, but the sides were mashed potatoes and squash, so not much eye appeal. Green veg or garnish would enhance it.

This was highly recommended and we were not disappointed. The Clam Chowder and Lobster Bisque were excellent, Crab Cake was flawless and the fried seafood platter allowed to try all of the fruits of the sea. The sides of brussel sprouts and potato wedges made it a complete meal - Thanks to the owner or GM who stopped by to visit - unexpected but appreciated. I will be back on next visit to the area.

We celebrated our 37th anniversary with a delightful meal at Turners. My daughter in Beverly highly recommended it. We were delighted to find a "Pinotage" on your wine list as it is only made in So. Africa and reminded us of our trip there a few years ago. Great meal and great service.

First the parking lot across the steeet was a nightmare . It wouldn’t take my credit card . I had to get change and go back to the car . Cold out and it was frustrating!
Then they wouldn’t seat us till everyone was there.
Then I got tuna and when it came it was like tuna fish with mayo . I wanted a piece of dish tuna . So not then best experience.

Sat 35 minutes later than reservation
Took about 15 minutes for a server to attend
Tuna was not cooked as asked even after server confirmed.
Food felt a bit “fast food”
Not a good value.
