Old time fun!

The atmosphere was unique; the piano player was taking requests; the food was good. All added up to an enjoyable time!

Popped into Grumpy's at lunchtime on a visit to Silverton. The bar and restaurant offers a great atmosphere which meets you at the door with the piano player's rag-time music sounds. My wife and I sat at a table for two next to the player and enjoyed our beers and food whilst people watching. A most enjoyable lunchtime experience.

We stopped at Grumpy's when we reached Silverton on the steam train. It was the end of the season, so the town was winding down, but Grumpy's sure wasn't! The piano player was great, and added to the old time atmosphere and decor. We had the French Onion soup and a salad.....not exceptional, but we had no complaints. The owner... More

Stopped there after the train ride from Durango. Great piano player and very nice atmosphere - not grumpy at all :-) Good food at a reasonable price. Lot's of options to eat at in Silverton would suggest Grumpy's as a great choice.

Enjoyed a delightful train ride to Silverton with delicious lunch at Grumpy's! I wish to personally thank Al Harper (owner) for a fun few hours. Just a short walk from the train - 2 blocks - to the corner - where the Grand Imperial Hotel is undergoing renovations - you will find this restaurant/bar. Entertainment provided by a talented gal...

The restaurant would probably only rate average any place else, but in Silverton it is probably better than average. On a cool, rainy day in October it was a pleasant place to kill an hour. I had the chili which was surprisingly good, and hubby had a catfish sandwich with sweet potato fries. The sandwich was meh. The sweet potato... More

Great food, service and atmosphere. My wife had a bowl of the meat chili topped with shredded cheddar cheese and I had a swiss burger with grilled mushrooms. Both were delicious. Oh..and the onions rings are a must. We look forward to our next visit to try some other items from the menu.

A ragtime piano player, good food, friendly waitress. I sang along with the piano player, later we talked, I gave him a big hug. He is world famous, Dale Elliot, super sweet man!!! We had a great time!

We stopped in here for a burger while waiting to board the train back to Durango. It was crowded at lunch time but still got seated quickly. The burgers were large and tasty. The piano player was very talented. I don't believe there was a song she couldn't play. If your riding the train up to Silverton, spend your lay... More

The old timey rag time piano player was awesome. We love music and any good music and that talent was wonderful.
