Turner's Seafood - Salem Ratings and Reviews

Sadly with this being our night we chose to eat a nice dinner didn't work out. Made a reservation on Open Table and waited about 25 minutes. Was then seated at a high top table in the bar which was very loud and felt just stuck there. Server was nice and good but kitchen dropped mothers dish and meal fell apart from there. Managers apologetic but should have comped the delayed food. (A simple Caesar came mid meal as well. ) Probably another night the place and food just fine. Locals seemed to really enjoy.

Making a reservation was very easy via Open Table. The restaurant itself was beautifully decorated with a friendly, efficient staff. The food exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Delicious fresh seafood, great atmosphere and service. Shrimp cocktail was the juiciest freshest shrimp ever tasted. Followed by scallops and Finnan Haddock, washed down with a cool crisp rose.

Food was very good, service took a long time for everything. Drinks, apps, meals, leading plates, bill. Server seemed to have a difficult time coordinating our order with his other tables. Folks next to us had similar issues. Hoping this was just an off day for the server

Being a local and knowing the madness of Salem during the month of October, it is so nice to get welcomed at Turner's by such a friendly and welcoming team. Everyone always works so hard and still provides exceptional and attentive service! The food is fresh, fresh and what really puts the icing on the cake is the presence of the managers who are always on the floor making sure every guest is leaving with a smile! There's a reason why this place is the talk of the town and #1 on everyone's radar when visiting the North Shore -- they are simply the best :)

For over 20 years in a row our family has traveled to Salem for the Haunted Happenings in October. We love this place and plan on making this one of our yearly stops during our getaway.
We have attended a couple years in a row, each time our food and service has been great and the owners/managers make it around to each table to sincerely ask "how everything is". See you next year!!

Wait time was accurate. pace of the meal was very long, someone did come to the table to let us know the kitchen was behind , the waitress was also slow, took forever to get refills and to settle check etc. Lobster bisque was exceptional, scallops were just ok, scallops were not worth the $26 price as they were bland. atmosphere was great. We visit Salem every year and this is the first time we have dined here, wish I would have discovered the lobster bisque sooner. Would definitely return but only for the lobster bisque and bread.

If anyone has dietary concerns, this restaurant was very considerate about the gluten allergies of the children in our group. They had gluten free options clearly marked on the menu and were careful about cross-contamination. Their gluten free dishes came out separately and they were very understanding and accommodating.

disappointed with the quality of the seafood. Mussels were overlooked and almost. tasteless. The Portuguese fishermans's was not as flavorful (of fish/seafood) as the same dish at Legal Seafoods. Wine and beer were much better than the food. Service was fine and attentive.

Incredibly rude staff that acted as if we were the stupidest customers in the world. They actually seemed pained to describe the menu to us. Absolutely no idea how they received a #1 ranking. Avoid this restaurant ... please. Go anywhere else in Salem!

As a party of two, we seemed to get swallowed up by large groups all around us not allowing our waitress adequate time to check on us. She tried very hard though. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a late lunch. Has oysters and chowder/ lobster bisque for lunch so decided to try it again for dinner because of its location close to where we would be. Lunch was much more enjoyable with better service

Visited with two friends middle of September. My only complaint would be that I made a reservation for 7pm and had to wait a half an hour to actually get a table even with a reservation. It was crowded and loud but that made for a festive atmosphere. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. I thought the prices were very reasomable as well. I had shrimp scamp whoch was $13. It's a very nice restaurant that I would visit again given the opportunity.

We had a wonderful birthday meal here on the 23rd Sept.Aĺl the food was delicious there was 5 of us and we had a really mixed order.free dessert for the birthday girl was Tirimisu the best ever even tastier than offerings in Italy. We have traveled extensively and this is probably one of the best meals we have been served. Staff were friendly attentive and knowledgeable would recommend it highly

I have been to Turner's several times since it opened. We always have a great meal there. I opted for the summer swordfish. Very good. My husband got a steak. He ordered medium rare, and it arrived very rare. He is not a complainer, so he didn't send it back. Nonetheless, we would still return to Turner's. The salads were also very good.

The food was excellent and reasonable value. Service was slow - the staff was pleasant but it took a long time for the meal to arrive even though it wasn't that busy. I'd still go back and hope for a better experience with the service.
