Nothing was too bad, but nothing was too good either. Average fare at higher-than-average prices. Nice location and outdoor seating. Slow, unattentive service. Would not return, but still, choices are limited in downtown Salem.

We enjoyed a great meal at The Kitchen! The muffin and sausage skillet was wonderful, and the gravy was spot on. My husband and daughter had lunch selections while I had breakfast so there was definitely something for everyone.

The food was delicious. The vegan chilli was rich with such depth of flavor. The blackened catfish was cooked perfectly. The bread is homemade and fresh. The clam chowder was delicious. The lamb burger was wonderful. Great place with outdoor shaded sitting.

We decided to eat here with friends because it was the only place around. We also had two grandkids with us. The service was great. I had an omelette that was very good. Everyone liked their meals including the kids.

I wasn't impressed. My wife and I and a few friends went their BBQ pork sandwich. The sandwich was extremely salty, and BBQ sauce wasn't to my liking. Their French fries were wonderful. One of the wait staff was wearing dirty clothes and which I...More

I like the food here, especially the soup, but it's not outstanding or special enough to make it worth the wait when it's busy at lunchtime. There aren't many tables, so they take names and ask you (somewhat rudely) to wait in the adjoining takeout...More

I really like this place. I can best describe it as a fusion of classic American diner and hipster hangout. This is not a place to go for an elegant night out on your anniversary. It's casual. The food is everything. I have two touchstone...More
