The last of what was once a chain of restaurants has been shut down and apparently forced to vacate its space, and it is not known for sure what the future holds for the space.
According to a source, Victoria's Station in Salem (and its affiliated bar, Vic's Boathouse) is locked up with a sign out front saying it has been vacated "by order of the court," with a Facebook post from Salem Food Digest showing a "Keep Out" sign with a Commonwealth of Massachusetts seal on it in the window/door of the Pickering Wharf spot. Rumors and chatter are taking place this afternoon about what might become of the space, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet so stay tuned for updates.
The Salem location of Victoria's Station is the last of approximately 100 locations of the former chain; other outlets had once been in Boston, Burlington, and Framingham, but all of those locations are long gone now.
The address for Victoria's Station (and Vic's Boathouse) is 86 Wharf Street, Salem, MA, 01970.
