Used to enjoy going there for the beef dip in the early 80s, and loved it. Haven't returned for years, but heading out of the city in December, decided to give it a try again. Meal was good, service was fast and friendly. Atmosphere doesn't seem a whole lot different, but sadly there was no beef dip on the menu... More

Family run, and famous for their ribs. The service was very good and with a smile, loved that the music was truly background music. We split a full rack and for $2.00 we were able to get two salads, choice of potato, and mixed fresh veggies. The place was hopping but service was fast. Food was good, veggies were a... More

I was at Silver Heights for dinner with a friend in May 2014. I worked late, and so dinner was late for me - we arrived at about 8 PM. Our server - who admitted that it was her first night serving alone - was incredible. She was knowledgeable, quick, professional, courteous. She made the experience for me. I ordered... More

Met here with friends on Friday. Drink orders were taken promptly. Good selection of beers on tap. Ordered some appetizers. Started with the Baked Garlic Shrimp which was really good. Shrimp are baked in a great herbed garlic butter and it comes with some toasted bread for dipping. Also ordered some lemon pepper wings. They we ok - certainly nothing... More

The ribs come with a too tangy bottle tasting sauce. Tossed salad was fresh but mostly lettuce. For the price one should get bread/buns. I would not order the ribs again. So many better restaurants around for that price. Lounge needs some upgrades in décor.

We .visited this restaurant for my son`s 18 birthday. We had a variety of food with the ribs being undoubtedly being the best. They advertise the best ribs in Winnipeg and when referring to their regular ribs I would have to agree. I had the Greek ribs which were good but substantially drier than my wife's regular. The other meals... More

Chantel went the extra mile to make our supper an enjoyable time. Service was timely , foods served as we preferred. There was no bad attitude , just great service with a smile.

My wife and I went to SHR on 25 September and had a very good meal. I ordered the New York strip and she had the baby back ribs. Both came with your choice of house or ceasar salad, mashed, baked or french fries and the mixed veg of the day. Both meals were very good and my steak was... More

There were two shrimp and a couple of scollops, the mash potatoes had beef gravy on it,which I didn't understand and it cost $24.00 which was... More

People tell me the lounge is much better and definitely has a cheaper menu. Not complaining about the average age, but I'm 50 and was the youngest person in the dining room. Food overall was pretty average. Highlight was the escargots in huge mushroom caps. Everything else that we had - burger, caesar salad, poutine, tossed salad with shrimp -... More
