We were in Silverton like so many others thanks to the Bus and or The Train. We came by bus and arrived in time to be among the first in the dining room of this very special hotel- Grand Victorian which has been lovingly maintained. The bar is magnificent with mirrors and brass foot rail. The gentleman at the piano... More

We stopped in here after the train trip up from Durango and it added to the old west feel you had with the characters at the Durango depot in 1800's apparel and the train itself. The staff was really friendly and very quick. I had the ruben and the wife had a salad and they were both very good. Not... More

Located in Silverton’s largest and grandest historic hotel, the Grand Imperial, the restaurant was extensively rehabbed at the same time as the hotel and reopened for the 2016 summer season. The rehab truly reflects the grandeur and spirit of the late 1800’s and provides an enjoyable atmosphere for dining. We checked out the restaurant in May, a week after it... More

The dining room in the imposing Grand Imperial Hotel does an amazing job of managing the hordes who descend upon then in the two lunchtime Durango&Silverton trains and promptly and efficiently delivers up delicious soups, sandwiches and hot chocolate to their hungry if soot-covered customers. If you have time to chat the waiters are friendly, but like Fred Harvey's Harvey... More

AKA "Grumpy's" is a favorite lunch spot for the incoming passengers on the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Since the typical passenger is only in Silverton for a couple of hours, Grumpy's turns a QUICK lunch during the railroad layover. They know their crowd! Even though somewhat rushed, the Ruben I had was one of the best ever, and the old... More

First the piano player may greet U at the entrance. then there is the BAR to your right. Seating is at tables for two or four and just a bit crowded. Food is hot and quick. We visited here for lunch on two occasions and both times it was very busy but we did not feel we were finished with... More

My mother, daughter and I ate here last Friday and it was Steak Night! Our steaks were cooked just how we asked and it was the perfect portion. With the amount of food on the plate I really could have done without the corn on the side as I didn't have room for it. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and... More
