Red's Sandwich Shop

Leaving The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Marina for dinner Friday evening, we asked Jimmy, the night maintenance man, for recommendations for breakfast. Jimmy said that we had to visit Red’s Sandwich Shop where all the locals eat.

Saturday we took Jimmy’s advice and made our way over to Red’s. We were not disappointed. While the counter had stools open, the six of us wanted to eat together. The wait for a table was short. Our waitress was pleasant, efficient, and attentive. Our food came quickly and it was piping hot. The lobster benedict was the majority’s choice. The bill fare was modest for the amount of food and coffee we had.

Sunday rather than try another restaurant we ventured back to Red’s with an additional four family members. Although the patrons were lined up outside the door, the hostess divided our group into fives and quickly found us a table and a booth. Out of lobster we switched to crabmeat benedict. Michelle, our waitress, did well. The only drawback was the girls had to put their coats back on since we were near the entrance and the cold gusty wind would blow at us when people opened the door.

Take Jimmy’s advise when you are in Salem MA and put Red’s on your breakfast menu.
