We were in town overnight and wanted seafood. We made the right choice in coming to Turner’s. The atmosphere was very nice and the food was delicious . Our server was very attentive. I had the fish special which was swordfish that night and it was delicious . My only regret was we were full from dinner and didn’t have dessert.

We had a delicious dinner. Ordered the lobster bisque, with extra meat and it was so good! Added a salad and it made a nice dinner. Drinks were good and so was service. We will definitely go back when our travels take us back to Salem.

I had the swordfish with onion jam, mashed cauliflower and sautéed spinach. The serving size of swordfish was generous. It was cooked perfectly and delicious. Husband ordered the scallop special with potatoes, spinach and sundried tomatoes. It was delicious with a generous number of scallops. Dessert was the apple crisp à la mode with a caramel sauce that hit the spot.

The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. The building has so much rich history. Will definitely go again.

I found the restaurant in a Google search so took a chance. I had a fish/pasta dish that was outstanding, the best fish (pan fried haddock) entree that I can remember eating out. My sister ordered the shrimp scampi and she was also delighted.

The service was excellent. The food choices plentiful. One of the only places to find Finnan Haddie, which they do quite nicely. Great clam chowder. Prices are good for this quality for food. The only down side is that the noise level is overwhelmingly loud. Difficult to enjoy a nice conversation, which spoils the evening with friends.

5 friends met on a Saturday afternoon, none of us having been before. Excellent and immediate service. We had a reservation but showed up a half hour early and were accommodated right away. Exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. FANTASTIC seafood. Fried oysters were the standout. Great bloody marks and good selection of wine reasonably priced. Also, historic. Old Lyceum building and, according to another table of diners, the Lyceum did not permit women, and there were the 5 of us sitting under the sign! Photos taken.

Turner's is the place to go for a seafood meal in Salem. From appetizer to dessert, all the items on the menu show care, attention to detail and high quality in preparation. The wait staff is knowledgeable about the food and able to recommend delicious items that avoid food allergies. We've eaten at Turner's twice and can't wait to return the next time we're visiting the North Shore.

First, I'll say that everyone else's meal seemed to be very good.

Atmosphere was nice, and the service was excellent.

In re my meal, I ordered a tuna steak very rare. It came rare, but the tuna did not taste fresh; it was a bit "stiff" and past its prime. And at $29 for lunch, I was a bit disappointed.

Food was wonderful, never disappoints. Menu is varied and always has some interesting specials. One person in our party had a number of questions re ingredients. Our waiter was very well informed and when we asked a question as to whether a specific item was dairy free, he said he wasn’t sure and went into the kitchen to ask.
