Our Story

Serving you good food, good friends and good times.

Jacko’s Corner is a small plates kitchen, bar, and social space founded by a group of passionate, community-focused Salem locals. We all have the same goal of creating a new spot to enjoy great food, wine, and beer in a chic and friendly setting.

Jacko’s Corner was originally founded in 1919 by Jacko Tomasi as a candy store and ice cream parlor. Situated prominently at the corner where Main Street intersects with West Broadway in Salem, NY, Jacko’s is and always has been so much more than just a store. It is a fixture in the community; a beloved gathering place for all ages.

We are excited to bring Salem the next iteration of Jacko’s. Inspired by Tomasi’s love for the community, we’re honoring its roots with a modern twist.


Must go check out the specials! Their new chef Dave is really turning it up. Thursday nights trivia night. Small plates made to share. Cheese platters made with all local ingredients. The meatballs are to die for. Pops and board games to keep this kiddos busy while mom sits and relaxes at this little gem found right here in Salem.Great craft drinks, ciders, seltzer’s and wines that you can’t find anywhere else. Absolutely delicious
