Our first night in Salem a bewitched store clerk recommended this place for dinner. Amazing seafood and gorgeous environment. The service was a tad slow but it didn't hinder the experience. The salad bar setup is a bit confusing but we got over it quickly. Outdoor patio dining was breath taking

We got there around one after we went to the House of the Seven Gables. When we arrived we were told that their was a 20 minute wait. After twenty minutes the hostess told us that if would be another ten minutes. Most of the tables in the restaurant were empty and weren't filled for the entire time that we... More

Yes it was a Sunday night and yes the next day was a holiday, but 30 minute trying to find an appropriate parking place less than two block away was a distraction. Atmosphere in the bar/lounge area was very loud, but the dinning rooms was much less distracting. The tables spacing offered a nice space between each. The food was... More

This Restaurant in in a prime location on the Salem waterfront there is outside deck seating and a large dining area inside with a full bar This is a good place for a getaway without crowds or pressure in the winter parking can always be an issue on the wharf so plan accordingly

Since we had a Groupon for 4, we recently dined at Victoria Station with another couple. None of us had been there in a number of years. The salad bar was plentiful and fresh. The prime rib was prepared exactly as ordered and was tender, juicy, and tasty. In addition to the salad bar, we each got one other side.... More

They have fresh fruit, coconut, chow mein noodles, nuts, and many more things in the salad bar . They bring hot bread to the table. ( we... More

Had an occasion to take a friend to lunch. I was looking for a Diverse menu not knowing what my friend would have. It was a stormy day and had nice views of the harbor. Not the views and comfy feeling before renovation of years ago but still nice. Be careful of the bench seating it was like a fold... More

The bar area is bright and wide open, which allows for a nice view of the harbor. The service is good and the food choice is plentiful -- don't forget the salad bar. The steak dish I had was very tasty and grilled to perfection for a medium rare request. The value is strong for a pleasant experience and beautiful... More
