Village Tavern is located in the heart of Salem across from the Peabody Essex Museum. Serving a varied menu to both local and visitor, it’s the kind of spot where you can begin the day with a tasty thick cheeseburger grilled the way you like it, and end the night with Smoked Wings, Entertainment & Dancing. While the atmosphere at the Village Tavern might shift by the hour, what remains a constant will be our fresh, honest food, that one can enjoy at the bar, in a booth, table, or even outside in our quiet, but inviting Dog Friendly Sidewalk Café’.

High Quality food Salem has yet to experience the taste of, featuring our BBQ specialties smoked for hours on site- Ribs, Chicken, Brisket and more, Great Steaks- truly cooked to order, Black Angus Steak Tips & Burgers, Great Lunch offerings from a wide variety of salads, sandwiches & specials… ALL prepared fresh daily in our FROM SCRATCH KITCHEN!

Expect from the Bar. Colorful Martinis in proper stemware, a fine variety of choice wines, cold micro brew beers in frosted glasses, comfortable bar seats, indirect lighting, and attentive, knowledgeable bartenders that will be serving cocktails and our full menu. Our newly built bar will feature 35+ seats, a gorgeous zebra wood top, 14 draft beers, 12 tv’s and warm & friendly environment. Additionally, we have a 12 seat Raw Bar, highlighted by 2 tv’s, Fresh Oysters, Cherrystones and Shrimp Cocktail on display and prepared for you by your bartender!

    Best spot in Salem

    My wife and I had lunch there with our dog, Lilly. Super friendly staff! Lilly got a bowl of water before we got our cocktails!! 👌 Lunch was delicious. They even have a dog menu, but Lilly is spoiled.. She likes LOBSTAH!! Highly recommended!!

    Very Dog Friendly

    We were here after a particularly rainy 24 hours. The patio was wet and no one was on it. We asked if they could open the patio (since the rain had just cleared up) and they accommodated us not a problem. Everyone was super friendly, you could tell they love having dogs around. The food was also excellent and the beer selection is great. A fantastic choice to eat if you have dogs

    Dog menu!

    So impressed by this place! They are the most dog friendly restaurant I've ever been to. They offer a dog menu and have dog bowls that they bring to your table for your pup. All the servers stopped by to say hi to the pups and were super friendly to us humans as well. Human food is also great and excellent location. Definitely will be going back here!
