“I started coming here to play darts with my friend Jeannie, and everyone is very welcoming, the Bartender remembers your drink. The food is pretty good. It's typical bar food!I always enjoy myself when there. Darts is the main draw. It's not the plastic tips for sissies. We play real darts with metal.“

Captain's Pub Bar • $$

“Horrible service. The Manager Amber always looks disheveled and has an attitude. Who is in customer service with a constant scowl on their face and it looked like they just rolled out of bed and threw their hair in a bun no make up no pride in themselves sweats and sweatshirt working in a bar looks terrible you can tell it’s a dive bar for sure.“

Lil' Sammies Sports Bar • $
3404 Commercial St SE, Salem

“I've been to this place many times. And the bartenders are always on it. As well as give genuine conversation and not scripted remarks. That alone can make a not so good place seem wonderful. As for li'l Sammies though, it has other amenities as well. Drinks made proper, good fried food as well as sandwiches, and a couple machines set away from the main gaming room if you want to socialize with friends at the bar while playing. Overall A+“

“Had the Philly Cheddar, my niece had the Cesar salad. My sandwich was a bit dry, but was served hot and had great flavor. My niece enjoyed her salad and we shared a piece of the Tuxedo cake for desert. Service was fast and friendly, and we were able to sit and catch up without being rushed. Great view of the runway.“

Lucky's Pub & Lotto Bar • $
4572 Commercial St SE, Salem

“Lucky's Pub has a super comfortable local's vibe. The space is mostly clean -- I can't really hold a few dirty glasses and unwiped tables against a crew of 1-2, especially when the customer service is so exceptional. The bartenders are enthusiastic and friendly, the regulars are (for the most part) mellow and welcoming, and there's a nice variety of relatively private Oregon VLT machines if that's your thing. I'll be coming back, for sure. If this place had a slightly bigger crew on-shift to keep up with cleaning and maybe support a food menu, Lucky's would be an easy 5 stars.“

“The most special-occasion restaurant I patronize. Classy ambience, view, sharp personnel. As a senior dining alone I don't feel as comfortable here as I would at Josey's, say, otherwise I would patronize them weekly. I lunch only, and have had what I would call pub grub. Regulars who review on other forums report that the kitchen is capable of performing at a very high level. An exceptional venue for Salem and it deserves to live.“
