The Tavern in Old Salem

The Tavern in Old Salem Review

Now under new owners, this landmark has two very distinct personalities. By day, costumed staff serve dishes that hark back to Moravian times. By night, it morphs into something fancier, with staff wearing black aprons and serving contemporary fare to candle-lit tables. While this is a big change for the historic spot, much of its past remains: the trademark chicken pies and gingerbread with lemon ice cream are still on the menu. Extra touches at this family-run establishment include desserts and breads made from scratch.
