A Perfect Night out at Silva's

I have been going to Silva's Sheldon Inn for the past decade and never thought to review it on Trip Advisor. It is, by far, my favorite restaurant in the Sacramento area. Chef Doug Silva grows most of the herbs and many of the vegetables on sight so everything is always fresh. The menu changes... read more

Everybody mentions this place when we ask about date night....expensive!,Just ok staff, the food was yucky...my husband was not impressed either. We didn't eat all the food and didn't stay for dessert because we were afraid it would be just as bad as the meal. Maybe if I had a few glasses of wine it would have been better. Old... More

Been back three times in the last month! Don't eat anywhere more than three or four times a year. Great service. The food was awesome, the stuffed pork chop is the something you'll dream about. Stuffed with bacon and apples with a special apple gravy. Usually no or very little waiting to be seated on weekdays. Don't go on Sunday... More

Love the country setting, the restored building; the decor and atmosphere; delicious food but don't go very often because it's a little pricey for my budget.

I recently visited Silva's Sheldon Inn to celebrate my Uncle's birthday. This warm and friendly establishment sits in the extremely small ranch town of Sheldon. It is wonderfully maintained, family friendly with the owners and staff always friendly and helpful. Dress up or dress down, all are welcome. You will always find a mix of attire which no one thinks... More

Great food and service, been there a few times, always great. Dinned in May. Very rustic, but comfortable. Would definitely go back.

I've been to Silva's on several occasions and I've never had anything I didn't like there. Food is great.....from the fantastic appetizers to the always rotating array of options of dessert. If you want a hearty home-cooked meal this is your place.

Everything that I have had at the Sheldon Inn has been wonderful. From fantastic appetizers to berry cobbler with ice cream. Some of the produce even is picked from the garden in back, when in season. It is a wonderful country setting in the small community of Sheldon, making the short drive (10 minutes) from Elk Grove that much more... More

Our group of eight arrived just after 7pm on a Friday night without reservations. It took about 10 minutes for a table to accommodate our group to be set up. While this restaurant is now on the edge of the Sacramento suburbs you must remember that this place used to be in the middle of nowhere 20+ years ago. It... More
