Cute little diner the service was excellent waitress is perfect personable quick courteous loved everything about this little place you'll definitely be going backFood: 4/5


Breakfast was delicious and you get a lot for your money. Not a big fan of their coffee but everything else was great. I ordered an omelet with cheese, sausage, green peppers and onions as well as grits with cheese and french toast. Sooo yummy. It's a small place but comfortable.

This place is a slice of Americana. It is antique! The pancake were not great, but made better by the ambiance for this soda-jerk! I may go back to judge their burger.

Not good food. The wait staff is good, the owner seems nice but the food not very good. This was my only visit for many years. It was dinner that I had. Maybe the breakfast is better ?

On are way this morning for breakfast. Great food and great service. We go at least twice a week. Sometimes more depending. Prices are reasonable.

I was starved for something to eat and Downtown Salem does not have too many offerings as way of restaurants. Salem Oak Diner is right across the street from the historic cemetery and I had seen it before when I was in town and decided to try it. The first thing I have to say is that the service was SLOW and I mean slow. There were three waitresses there and I felt like one was doing their job. It took almost ten minutes to order and the place was not busy. I am not sure what they were all doing. The place is also a bit dumpy looking. It could really use a face lift. It just looked run down to me. There is just some reorganizing they could do to make it look nicer. The food really shined though and the prices are extremely fair for what you get. The portion sizes are rather large. I had the French Toast with a side of two scrambled eggs. That was excellent. They gave you three big slices of French Toast that was loaded with cinnamon and sugar made better by lots of butter and the eggs were the perfect scramble cooked in clarified butter. If they could just get their timing down a bit better and let you know what was going on the place would be much better. Still, I really enjoyed my meal here.

Small town diner. Nice selection of food, prices are more than fair for the amount of food you get. Delicious.

Came in with the family and it was completely worth it. The staff is great, the food is great and you can't beat the price. You get a great bang for your buck with the portion sizes! Will definitely be back soon.

Best crock of onion soup I've eaten in along while. Sandwich was very good also. Going for dinner sometime soon.


The food was great and the atmosphere very nostalgic. Service was a bit slow but our waitress was engaging and attentive. Will visit again next time we’re in the neighborhood.

Been by the Salem Oak Diner many times, but never stopped by. I finally decided to pull over and give the place a try. A diner straight out of the past, it was cozy, had the traditional long counter and a few booths with jukeboxes at each table! I was there for lunch and ordered a salad and a grilled cheese w/bacon sandwich. One of the best I've ever had!! I'm so glad I stopped into the Salem Oak Diner! I will absolutely be back!!
