The Peabody Essex Museum is located in downtown Salem, so eating options abound. But what are Chowhounds’ favorites for a postmuseum meal?

Red’s Sandwich Shop serves breakfast all day in addition to fresh seafood, sandwiches, and hot lunch specials. It has an “old fashioned diner feel with reasonable prices,” smtucker says.

62 Restaurant on Wharf Street is a good bet for elegant yet affordable Italian, but for summertime dining, drewinmrblhd recommends Finz Seafood & Grill at Pickering Wharf. “You can’t beat eating at an outdoor patio on the water,” drewinmrblhd says. Try the baked stuffed lobster. And there’s a Connecticut-style lobster roll at The Lobster Shanty.
