In a Pig's Eye in Salem in Salem Is Closing

A North Shore restaurant that briefly closed last year after being seized by the state is getting ready to shut down for good after 30 years in business

According to a Facebook post from the dining spot, In a Pig's Eye in Salem is closing on Friday, with the note saying that "The Pig has had a long career and it is sad but all good things must come to an end." No reason has been given for the closure of the Derby Street eatery, though the post mentions that "The truth is many circumstances lead to the fact that The Pig is closing, some of them are out of our control."

In February of 2015, In a Pig's Eye was forced to close by commonwealth of Massachusetts because of nonpayment of taxes, though it quickly reopened, possibly after having worked out a deal/payment plan with the state.

In a Pig's Eye has been featured on our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) as a place to go for comfort food and drinks. The review can be found at the link below:

The address for In a Pig's Eye is 148 Derby Street, Salem, MA, 01970.
