Our experience at Ledger was excellent as always! The food was delicious (mmmmm turtle donut), drinks were excellent, and service was great. The staff followed every guideline so we felt reassured that the safety of the guests was a priority. Ledger has done a terrific job with the spacing of the outdoor tables, contactless payment option, and cleaning. It was the perfect place to venture out for our first eating out experience since March.

Went for a date and very much enjoyed the food and drinks. Limited menu but what we had was good. Quiet atmosphere but really cool architecture and the vault door and remaining wall of safe deposit boxes. Spent $150 for an appetizer, 2 entrees, and 4 alcoholic beverages.

We showed up not know brunch ends at 3 and the staff was so incredibly nice and attentive I didn’t even realize we were the last table there. Our server, Maria I believe, was awesome we loved her! Accommodations for allergies, suggestions, and just overall good vibe. Love it here definitely will be back!

Our favorite brunch spot in Salem. Their spin on chicken and waffles is to die for, and the creativeness for their donut of the month never disappoints!

My son in law who is a chef ordered the sirloin to be cooked medium rare....it was well done no pink. Him being a chef didn’t want to complain but for the price of the dinner this should have never happened,

The best experience, the best service (thank you Martina!!). One of the top restaurants in Massachusetts, with a true top chef running the kitchen. Thank you Chef Dan for the amazing meal. I don’t drink alcohol, but their selection of craft local beers and their cocktail program is impressive. It’s very easy to find parking, and only blocks from the commuter rail. 10/10. Staff complied with every bit of the guidelines required during covid 19. I can’t sing the praises loud enough.
