My favorite place for dinner in Salem , MA – The first thing to notice as you enter this lovely restaurant, perched above some pretty fancy pleasure boats and overlooking the reproduction sailing ship The Friendship, is the genuine warm welcome from whomever is at the desk at the time. Throughout Spring and Summer the upstairs deck is open, even if they must roll down the heavy plastic curtains to protect from passing showers. By the way, there is a miniscule elevator to go from first to second floor!
The bar does a good job of preparing and serving drinks, even some exotic ones listed on the menu, and there is a good wine list.
Now, since we are here to eat, what shall it be? There is a bountiful choice of dishes served as small sized or regular plates. [Most of my friends seem to like a small plate rather than a doggy bag.] There is appropriate representation of our local New England sea foods, as well as a variety of fish, meat and fowl dishes. The servings are all generous, especially in the dessert department. I especially like their blue cheese dressing on Capt's Special salad which is beautifully presented and equally tasty.
The [mostly] young people who serve are terrific. Their humor is good, their manners excellent, their sense of fun amusing but not overwhelming.
I have followed this restaurant since it opened, and in the interest of full disclosure I must admit that the owner and his wife are friends of mine, but even if they weren't my friends, I'd still eat here as it is Salem's best!
RUDE HOSTESS – Had a late lunch 8/9/2006 with my wife, middle of my work day end of hers. The food was well prepared and very good. Our waiter was excellent and was well compensated for his professionalism. The hostess is what has ruin our experience as to not return. Prior to seating us she was making a lenghly comment on our "time limit" due to the balcony area was a commody and needed a "quick" turn-around. The balcony area was not half full and the interior, both levels, had no customers at all. I did obviously suppress my anger and surprise to her rudeness. At our exit I did make comment to her and she was oblivious to her actions and made yet another rude comment with a fake smile. NEVER AGAIN............
