Turner's Seafood Grill & MarketWelcome to Turner's Seafood Salem at Lyceum Hall

In 2013 our multi-year search for a very special space to serve our authentic New England seafood experience, and fresh-catch market in the heart of the North Shore, brought us to the cultural riches of Salem and our new home in storied Lyceum Hall. We are very pleased our city neighbors and surrounding communities have embraced the renewed ambiance of Lyceum Hall, our signature, classic New England seafood for lunch and dinner, a lively oyster bar and Salem's first, fresh, locally-sourced seafood market. Lunch debuts in December.

Turner's Seafood at Lyceum Hall expands our culinary footprint presenting four generations of our family's experience, expertise and passion for all things seafood to this hub of the North Shore, complementing our Melrose seafood grill and market and up to Cape Ann for our third seafood market and seafood plant.

Executive Chef

"Our team selectively sources and prepares food to please the full range of the senses, stimulating, and striving to create a memorable seafood dining experience for our guests ... every visit, every time,"
- Yale Woodson

Growing up in the rich, culinary landscape of Manhattan, Yale experienced an expansive range of cuisines representing the county's regional fare and abroad, pairing these interests with the history and cultural influences that define food everywhere.

While not a classically schooled chef and with a B.A. in Social Anthropology in tow, Yale continued to venture into the culinary world subsequently benefiting from two mentoring relationships, working closely with acclaimed Chefs Jasper White and Rich Vellante… informing his passion for and knowledge of the sea’s bounty, honing his approach to classic New England seafood that continues today.

As a New England Chef, Yale feels a responsibility to steward sustainably, and to creatively use underutilized local catch whenever possible...continuing to heighten his understanding, knowledge and talent for sourcing and preparing great quality seafood.
