We stopped there for lunch on our first day in Salem. It has a quaint pub-like atmosphere with a bar and tables for dining and a second room which is just for dining. We chose the dining room which had views of Derby St and some of the cute shops. I had a sirloin tips sandwich which was delicious, tender... More

Stopped in because the place we had planned on going had closed. Was looking at the menu when the dish I was eyeing came out sizzling to the table next to us. Order the Witch's Brew Steak; you won't be sorry!

We stopped in on a cold March day. The greeter/server was very nice. The lunch menu varied enough that the four of us found (easily) some really tasty meals. From Quesadillas through Paninis things were nice. The only drawback was the special salmon burger which tasted a bit "fishy". The tea was either hot or cold, a trait of most... More

When visiting Salem, we had heard the Witch's Brew was a fun place for drinks. The bartenders were super friendly and the drinks were great! The food looked good too, but we didn't try any this visit. Definitely recommend this place.

I enjoyed my dinner here, service good, food great, atmosphere beautiful. We were walking around and saw this quaint little café and decided lets go in. It was a great choice. I had the Ratatouille, very nice taste and filling. I am planning on going back in a couple of weeks while on vacation.

Wish we could have stayed longer! Popped in on the way to the ferry port before we sailed back to Boston. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, free wifi! Face timed my husband in Scotland as I said "bye, love you" the other folk in the bar chimed in with a chorus of "love you!" The food looked good but sadly we... More

We stopped in on a Saturday not fully realizing it was a pub type of place (guess the "brew" in the name should've been a giveaway). We decided to eat anyway and there was enough of a selection on the menu for each of us to find something (two of us being vegetarian). My husband said the burger was good.... More
