Great breakfast

We ate here for breakfast one morning...Super hardy, yummy, big portions. Sustained us through to a late lunch. Also ordered dinner here one night. Roast beef as good as my mama's (shhh)!

The club sandwich is good. The soups are good. The homemade pie with ice cream was great too. They've got a great staff in this old saloon. Stop in for the vintage flair! Food is good.

The food was good and fairly priced. Their salad bar doesn't have much other than lettuce and a couple of add on's. The service was OK.

We had a late lunch here after some heavy shopping. This place had been recommended by a few people in town as we asked around. Excellent and interesting "old saloon" atmosphere. The service was good, and the food was excellent. Prices were a little above moderate, but that's to be expected in a tourist town such as Silverton. Oh, and... More

This restaurant in the mountain town of Silverton, Colorado, is a staple for the community. It is the only restaurant open there all year round. They have daily specials The day we were there homemade meatloaf and chili were the specials. They were both delicious, and reasonably priced. Our server was very good. I recommend this restaurant when you are... More

It is a great little mountain cafe for breakfast. Nothing fancy, but good standard fare. Their green chile sauce was the only disappointment as it was gummy and lacked flavor. It is good in so many of the restaurants in the area that we were hoping it would be up to their standard. The eggs were cooked to order. Pancake... More

We enjoyed eating at the Brown Bear Cafe as it felt a bit like being in the old west. The service was outstanding as there was always someone there willing to assist. The food was so-so. Nothing great but certainly filled the belly. Prices were fair and reasonable and there should be no complaining as most everything was $10 or... More

The food here was good, I had the Ruben and my husband had the burger. The service was excellent and the building had a nice historic charm to it. I was too full to try the homemade pie, but it looked wonderful.

Stopped here for lunch and glad we did. Historic and full of memorabilia. Good menu for simple eats and treats. From peanut butter & jelly, grilled cheese to great hamburgers, something for everyone at reasonable prices.
