Awful awful awful

Overpriced, poor quality food, extremely slow and unfriendly service. Don't do it. Haven't had a meal this poor in a long time and it was not worth the prices.

We ate here for dinner because all the other places in town were full. This was the only place that wasnt. We soon figured out why. The ( one & only) waitress was very friendly, it was her first day on the job so she had to keep running to the owner with every menu question we asked (like, does... More

The food was o.k. and server we had was quite nice. It wasn't very busy and seemed a little lax, but we had a fine experience and decent food.

I stayed at the Columbus hotel which is above the Silver Nugget for 5 days over the July 4 weekend. Because the breakfast was included with the room I ate at the silver nugget each day. I found the staff very pleasant but overworked. The food was good but nothing special.

We had dinner at Silver Nugget this evening. Now that I've read other reviews, I suspect our experience wasn't all that unusual. The food was surprisingly good. We all ended up having the special: country fried steak, mashed potatoes & a salad. The salad was fresh & nicely presented. Dressing tasted homemade. The country fried steak was great - the... More

We had a homestyle breakfast here and it was okay. They obviously were short staffed and that was a bit annoying since we had plans but I've worked in food service too so I get that it happens sometimes. Overall it wasn't a great experience but if you see something on the menu that looks good to you then give... More

One star is too much for this place. French toast was burned. Waitress was very rude and acted put out to have to take our order. I would starve before I ate here again.

Our first breakfast in Ouray was here. The black dog didn't bother us because we have big dogs at home and it seemed to add to the charm of the place. The waitress was nice and her daughter was cute as she brought us the bill. I too noticed that this place hardly ever had people inside but my dad... More

We had dinner twice at the Silver Nugget during our stay in Ouray, CO back in early October. The food was good both times. I had their chicken parmigiana and spaghetti - delicious. The second visit I had grilled chicken. The chicken needed to be sent back to the kitchen for a bit more cooking but they immediately took care... More

Worst breakfast I never ate! One bite is all it took. Paid and left. Not to mention the dog at the end of our table trying to get food. Stay away!
