Turner's Seafood - Salem Ratings and Reviews
I dined at Turner's Seafood for lunch on a cold, wintry Saturday. The atmosphere inside was warm, and cozy, with a busy raw bar and lunch scene. The menu is diverse enough for a group - features lots of local seafood and the portions are generous. Everyone there was super nice. It'd been 7 years since my last visit to Salem, but I'd def go back and be sure to stop by Turner's for another great meal.
Great service for lunch at 1pm. My salad with grilled shrimp had only 4 shrimp. It was just ok, but nothing special that I couldn’t easily make at home. It would be great if they could make a clam or fish chowder without dairy!
Generally I find the seafood fresh here.
We celebrated our family Christmas get together. There were 8 people & our 7:15pm reservation was pretty close to on time. There was quite a few mix-ups on our side dishes, but the wait staff quickly made the corrections & offered coffee & dessert on the House. We all enjoyed the oysters-mussels & shrimp appetizers and not a single complaint from anyone on their entree choices. We chose 3 desserts that were all great.
For almost 20 years, we have been loyal and devoted customers. First in Melrose, now in Salem. We have never, ever had a disappointing meal. Always impeccable fish. Family overseen, with the best managers. We give this restaurant family 5+ stars, because we have never, ever been disappointed, and delighted each and every time we have dined with them. The Turner family has been consistent forever. When we want a great fish meal, we always go to Turner's. Always. No question.
Food was very good as well as presentation. Waiter very attentive and polite, but not bothersome. There were 4 in our party, we had reservations through Open Table and we did not have to wait to be seated. It was a cold night and we were given a table in front of their fireplace which was perfect! Nicely furnished, clean, and comfortable with a wonderful bar. All in my party chose different meals and all were very happy with their selection. Cannot say if there is entertainment there may be on weekends; we went on a week night. I will definitely be returning!
Turner’s is a nice spot with a great vibe. It has with two wood burning fireplaces, two bars and a community table. The seating is interesting with hightops and low tops along with booths and bars. I’ve never been much of a seafood person but I’ve gotten into it at Turner’s because it’s fresh and I haven’t had anything that tasted fishy. The guy who tends bar is great, I don’t usually put stock in the “craft cocktails” many places but they have some some cocktails that are unlike anything I’ve had. Ask about the pre-prohibition old fashioned, which isn’t on the menu. It’s great if you like Rye!
Would not recommend for dinner. Overpriced and not worth it- no one loved their entrees. Ok for cocktails and nice atmosphere. Seated promptly. Made reservations, but were cramped-- 5 people at a very small table. Seated next to a large party and impossible to get out due to that. Would hesitate to return for dinner.
Great convenient spot. Lots of parking right adjacent to restaurant. Great server Raphael from Quebec! You don't get service like this every day - he is exceptional. Food delicious. Had a lobster pasta dish and my sister had oysters. The salad with maple dressing is great and the key lime pie - wonderful.
Excellent seafood. Only complaint is a little noisy for a normal conversation. Next time I will ask to be put not near the bar because people I'm with are hard of hearing so the background noise is difficult for them. Food choices are excellent and prepared perfectly.
Went to Salem for the first time with my husband last week and decided to go to Turner's for a nice sit down seafood dinner. The ambiance was absolutely charming. The restaurant itself is beautiful, but all of the Christmas decor gave it a whimsical touch. We were seated by the fireplace, which was the icing on the cake. Great spot, and not too hot. We each ordered a soup, lobster entree and alcoholic beverage. For the caliber of food, I would say the pricing is accurate. We wanted a memorable dinner and we got one. My only criticism is that our servers were switched out mid meal and neither seemed particularly happy to be our server. That aside, I am in love with Salem and I am in love with Turner's.
It is even hard to write a review, because after I do so, it comes up that SOMEHOW I have not filled in the required spaces!!! I will try once more, but you are lucky I have lost my patience with this endeavor, and probably won't be so blunt. The red potatoes served with my sole looked like red bowling balls, and we're as hard as rocks! The vegetables were not much better. The sole was presented to look like miniature dish towels. The wine was good, as usual. The service was adequate, although the server did not describe what my meal was going to look like, or how it was going tone set out. Eve the oysters were such as you could barely see two of them. Maybe when they are so small, others should be served to replace them.
