"The elegance of the Lyceum's high-ceilinged front rooms and glass-walled back rooms matches the sky-high quality of the food, which attracts local businesspeople as well as out-of-towners." - Frommer's Boston 2008
George Harrington established the Lyceum Bar & Grill in Salem, Massachusetts in 1989 in a historic former lecture hall made famous by the likes of Thoreau, Hawthorne, Emerson, and Alexander Graham Bell.
Long before Bell made his first public phone call, in 1877, from the Lyceum, Bridget Bishop tended her apple orchard here, next door to her house, from where, in 1692, as an accused witch, she was dragged to jail and hanged at Gallows Hill.
Where food for thought was once the bill of fare, all of us at the Lyceum Bar & Grill welcome you to enjoy our relaxed, hospitable, and stylish eatery. So come visit a piece of history and join us for lunch, brunch, or dinner featuring Chefs Hugo Corado's and Mark Johnson's intriguing global cuisine at affordable prices.
