Salem has so many great restaurants for a city of its size, eating out is one of its greatest attractions. Guests of our Salem boutique hotels are always asking for dining recommendations, and our staff loves to help select the perfect restaurant for the mood.
One of our favorite recommendations to our foodie guests is Salem Food Tours. These walking tours showcase Salem's food and drink scene with stops at some of Salem's best restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, and distilleries. Tours include a minimum of 5 stops, and you'll hear from chefs and passionate business owners, as well as your tour guide.
The original walking food tour is a perennial favorite, lasting about 3-1/2 hours of sampling, wine tasting, and walking. From old world Italian at Bambolina to modern Japanese at Kokeshi, you'll love what the Salem Food Tours' partners serve up. This walking tour is a great way to learn about Salem's restaurant scene and sample some amazing food all in one go.
The morning coffee walk is a great overview for those looking for a short overview of where to eat and drink in Salem. Just an hour and a half, this tour includes coffee, pastry, and a spice tasting as you learn about the maritime and trade history of Salem. Guides will point out and recommend Salem's best restaurants so you'll be armed with an eating game plan for the rest of your time in Salem.
Finally, the spirits trolley is a fun way to learn while sampling some of Salem's craft beer, wine, and spirits. The Salem Trolley provides the transportation while you tour historic neighborhoods and are entertained by local comedian Mark Scalia. Whichever Salem food and drink tour you pick, Salem Food Tours is a great way to sample what Salem's restaurant scene has to offer.
