This blog is directed at identifying any of the best restaurants and bars in the Salem and surrounding areas (especially for happy hour). Any food and libation lovers are invited to share their favorites. When you do, if you have specific reasons for the recommendation, please list them.
Here are some of mine:
Bentley’s at the Grand Phoenix – Good diversity of food at 1/2 price during happy hour. Drinks a bit expensive
Alessandro’s – You just have to try the Chef’s Choice for a fun surprise. You never know what you will get
Newport Bay – Decent happy hour menu, basic bar food, drinks are reasonably priced
Willamette Valley Grill – Excellent food, but pretty high priced. Not meant for family dinners…BTW, if you go there, ask for Danika. She is an outstanding server with great customer service. We make a point of requesting her table anytime we go.
