The Cajun Duck is delicious

They have really wonderful Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas and my mom swears by The Cajun Duck. They have a really good buffet during train hours also. The only thing I don't recommend here is anything with ground beef. For some reason it's been dry and overcooked every time I've ordered something... read more

wasn't sure where to head from the train for lunch? so just wandered and chose the Bent Elbow randomly. :) We got lucky. Excellent sandwiches and quick service. Quaint building.... definitely recommend it for your lunch break.

Really different atmosphere - nothing fancy here! Service was good, and wait staff was friendly. Food was plan, but was prepared well and served in amply sized portions. Somewhat pricey for the type of food, but it is after all a tourist area, so you don't expect bargains.

French dip was horrible. Service was decent. Hubby had an open face beef sandwich which was good but not very hot. No beer on tap but had a full bar. Expensive meal for 2 including 1 domestic beer and 1 soda $28 not including tip. There are plenty of other places to choose from.

We have vacationed in Silverton for 30+ years. The Bent Elbow is our favorite place to dine. You don't expect to find meals of this quality in such a small town. Bonnie's meals are excellent year after year. My family thinks the Prime Rib dinners are to die for. The specials..... are indeed SPECIAL! One of my favorites, especially on... More

The Bent Elbow is by far, the best restaurant in Silverton. My family and I have been visiting Silverton for 20+ years, and we always look forward to eating at the Bent Elbow. The chef definitely makes the restaurant! She creates weekly specials that are wonderful, and like nothing else you'll find anywhere else in town. The prime rib has... More

When you are in Silverton and want a really great meal from a really awesome, culinary-school trained, chef then go to the Bent Elbow. My buddy, Bob, and I were treated to the best meal I have to date in Silverton by far. The prime rib I ordered was absolutely perfect and I believe dramatically larger than the 14 oz... More

A National Historic designated site, and on Notorious Blair street- the Bent Elbow delivers the BEST! Time and time again we select the Bent Elbow restaurant for dining out, whether we come for lunch or dinner (hopefully breakfast will resume soon?). While dining we are assured of Superb food, reasonable prices, and efficient and engaging servers. Oh- how could we... More

Let's take it back to vacation 1974. We were on a very tight budget. We had arrived in Silverton in our 1955 Chevy pickup with a 15' camp trailer in tow. We'd been out for a week and were trying to conserve our money. We parked on a side street and walked to Blair street where the train had just... More
