The enormous growth in seating since 1980, from 10 to 250, testifies to the popularity of this establishment in downtown Salem, as does its continual title as "best local restaurant" in an annual poll. Sports memorabilia line the walls of the attractive redbrick building near Roanoke College, and sporting events are likely to be on the many TVs near the bar. The menu runs from hamburgers to steak to seafood to pizza. If you have a big appetite, try a fully loaded calzone, which flops off the sides of your plate.

If you ever find yourself in downtown Salem try this place. It is popular with the Roanoke College crowd, especially on Alumni & Parents weekends. They have a bar, the menu has a mixture of "sports type food" and regular entrees. Its busy and noisy with tvs on the wall, etc. I remember the chairs were uncomfortable. There are very few choices to dine in downtown Salem so this has to be the place. If you want better choices head for Market Square in
