From one-of-a-kind restaurants, like Go Burrito, to delicious pizzerias, such as Capriano's or Salty Caper, and even fine dining at La Cava Restaurant or Ivan's Restaurant, there’s something to fit every taste, budget and palate. In addition to our many cuisine types, we’ve got lots of specialty offerings.

Breakfast & Brunch

Craving a hearty breakfast or a hot spot for brunch? Salisbury’s got it. Enjoy a savory breakfast at Hendrix BBQ or Palm’s Cafe, or have brunch on the patio at Sweet Meadow Cafe or on the dock at Waters Edge Dock & Grill.

Coffee Shops & Bakeries

From bagels and sweet treats to delectable coffee concoctions or a classic cup of joe, Salisbury’s small businesses are sure to delight. From Koco Java to Abigail’s Bakery in Downtown Salisbury to Country Donutz to L.A. Murph, we’ve got just the buzz you need to keep you going.

Ice Cream & Desserts

No trip to Salisbury is complete without a locally-made sweet treat. A classic dipped cone from our 1950s vintage Dairy Queen hut (complete with iconic swirl cone sign lit with neon lights), scratch-made Chilean cheesecake from Tita's Cake House, or colorful macaroon from Abigail’s is a necessity. There are so many original options that you just can't go wrong. Our local ice cream parlors, bakeries, coffee shops, specialty restaurants and Snoball stands are ready to give you a taste.

Fine Dining

The thought of fine Italian from Chef Santos, seafood and steaks from Ivan’s Restaurant, and charcuterie from Carpe Vinum 121 makes our mouths water. Our fine dining restaurants offer their own unique atmospheres, like a hunting lodge at  Ivan's, a historic church at La Cava, or a quaint spot just off the bustling city streets at Bangkok Downtown. We can promise you’ll find a place where the mood and the food make you want to stay a while.

Outdoor Seating

From patios like Sweet Meadow and roof tops like to Go Burrito, to lakeside at Waters Edge, we love dining outdoors. Our mild weather makes outdoor dining desirable year round, and our Salisbury original local restaurants boast plenty of outdoor dining options to please the outdoor lovers and casual outdoor diners alike.

Juice Bars & Smoothies

Craving a cold-pressed juice or superfood smoothie? We've got it. Salisbury is home to Juice Life and Soulfull Nutrition.
