Our Special Location

Yesterday to Today

SALEM: Once the cultural and current affairs hub north of Boston where 19th century luminaries, most notably John Quincy Adams, Henry David Thoreau, Daniel Webster, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson lectured on literature, science, and government through the acclaimed Salem Lyceum Society, in historic Lyceum Hall, and where Alexander Graham Bell famously made the first public demonstration of the telephone, today the storied Hall is the thoughtfully adapted home of Turner’s Seafood at Lyceum Hall, and the recent transformation of this architectural gem’s 2nd Floor, where celebrity speakers-of-the-day performed.

For the restoration of Lyceum Hall’s 2nd Floor, we enlisted the renowned Boston architectural firm, Neimitz Design to preserve and create a stylish blend of period and modern, a casual elegance for special functions and events…rehearsal dinners, anniversaries, business meetings and presentations, employee appreciation, baby and bridal showers, awards recognition …celebrations to corporate.

The Culinary Complement

In 1994, John’s four sons opened Turner’s Seafood Grill & Market in their hometown of Melrose, MA. This authentic New England seafood house is complete with a fresh fish market and turn-of-the-century oyster bar. Turners expanded its retail operation to historic Gloucester, the nation’s oldest fishing port in 2006, with Turner’s Seafood Market. In the fall of 2010, the Turner family launched its on-line Dock to Door Seafood Market shipping fresh fish daily overnight from Gloucester to anywhere in the continental USA. Continuing to expand its culinary footprint and notoriety in offering diners New England’s best seafood experience, in November 2013 historic Lyceum Hall in Salem became home to the family’s latest seafood experience. Turner’s Seafood at Lyceum Hall provides classic lunch and dinner fare, creative daily specials, authentic shuck and serve oyster bar and the city’s only seafood market. Today guests from all over the country can enjoy New England’s finest seafood at Turner’s neighborhood locations or in the comfort of their own homes.
