Restaurant For Sale in Downtown

A national website is listing a Salem restaurant for sale for $99000. By the picture it looks like Macedonia in the Reed Opera House. To read the listing for yourself, click here. It says the owner is retiring.

Makes me sad. I love Macedonia, I think their Greek food is great! I sure hope whoever buys it keeps the Greek menu.

That's a great restaurant location. Amber, maybe you should buy it.

I think it suffers from it's location. I like their food and am downtown frequently, but I didn't know it was still there. Thought it closed years ago Kinda tucked away out of sight. If it had street frontage it would do 5x the sales (imo).

I hope they'll open in another location. Their food rivals and I think is superior to greek places in Portland. Macedonia has some of the best food in Salem.

I read the listing and it sounded to me like they want to sell the business; not just the location. If that were the case, you all would still have your Greek restaurant in Salem.

Personally I've found their food to be highly overpriced for its quality. Rather dated as well. It would be great to see someone bring this place to its potential.... while not pushing more folks into the unemployment office.

I'm gathering my pennies as we speak, Salem man. :-)

Anonymous and Guitar4me: I also think they have some of the best Greek food I've ever had, far superior than the places I've been to in Portland. But, the prices have been raised so much in the last few years, we finally stopped going.

The place does need to be updated. It seems like they should really take advantage of that gorgeous building and tone down the rest of the decor. I'll make sure I do this when I get done counting my pennies. ;-)

I hope they're more successful at selling the restaurant as it is, than Hans was with Old Europe Inn.
