This place is awesome and so is the staff. If you've never eaten here before, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Plus there's a lot of great local history hanging on the walls!

We have breakfast or lunch occasionally. Never had bad service or food. Started coming here in early 1960's. Never bad experience. Enjoy history touches of Salem as well.

I've been eating at the Court St. Dairy lunch for 40 years. It is still the best place in town for breakfast and lunch. Great staff and service and it always feels like hometown USA.

I go there a lot and take friends and family. Great food, friendly staff, like eating at home except you don't have to cook.

Wife loved the cold meatloaf sandwich, Patty Melt & fries was good, noise of kitchen was a bit much, but also gives it the comfortable feel like you've been here before

My appt. Got canceled as I was in route. At first I thought, I'm so tired of this happening. Then I recalled my not being able to follow through this weekend on a quite a few things this past Sat. Mor...ning. So I refuse to let it bother me. Just reminds me, we are all human after all✌🐪👏❤ See More

Here for Holding Court. Trying to fill Krizti Caraway and Tracy Caraway shoes as I present Dream Makers at the Vineyard, and Walker Beautification to the reporters from the Statesman Journal.
A littl...e wine, a little cheese, flowers and garden tools (thank you Jeremy Mackay at West Salem ACE for hooking me up), lots of information and touching stories from Dream Center teens.
Now all we need is favor with the reporters and the editors.

Marsh and Celeste stopped into the Court Street Dairy Lunch restaurant on Tuesday for the Statesman Journal's weekly "Holding Court" to chat with Carrol Currie and Mike Davis. We enjoyed getting to kn...ow them and being able to let people know about our upcoming Valentine's Weekend - Chocolate Indulgence event. Thank you to Carol, Mike and the Statesman for reaching out to its community in such an accessible and welcoming way. It was truly a lovely mother-daughter afternoon. Link to the article in the comments below. Join us this weekend at our scenic orchard and CHOCOLATE FACTORY in the West Salem hills for chocolate samples, tours of our factory and scenic views with your sweetheart. See More
