We stopped here for lunch while riding the train. Food was average sandwiches and fries. Bathrooms were tight. Was kind of a neat old building.

Stopped in the Shady Lady today for lunch with my wife and two kids (8 & 10) after riding the train to Silverton. We waited a long time to place our order, while several tables who were seated after us ordered and received their food. Even after we ordered, it took forever to get our food. The food was mediocre... More

Stopped at the Shady Lady Restaurant while stopped in Silverton riding the train. It was decent. Reasonably clean, seated quickly. Service was a little slow. The food was average. Not a bad experience, not great.

Consider yourself a foodie? Eat elsewhere. The food here had the flavor profile of food my Grandmothers in Ohio made when I was a child. The hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and corn isn't highly seasoned and that's fine with me. They have salt and pepper on the table, season the food to your taste. The staff was friendly,...

Took the train from Durango to Silverton. The staff was friendly but the food seemed like it was prepared from frozen and or deep fried. Nothing fresh. Poor taste and quality. Dining area in desperate need of refreshing. Dead flies in the windows and drapes.

Stopped for something to eat after the train ride up to Silverton. The service is friendly and fast. I tried the house special, open face roast beaf and gravy sandwich with corn and mashed potatoes. Not fancy, but reminded me of a meal I had on many occasions growing up. I would recommend this restaurant for a quick meal.

What a great place to eat. It had the atmosphere of the time it was a brothel. It had a bar but I ate at a table with a red checkered table cloth. The food was like homecooking. The price was reasonable. The waitress made sure our sodas were refilled. Good service. The lady on the front porch was calling... More

The staff and service was terrific. A great place for the whole family to dine without breaking the peggy bank. I would highly recommend the roast beef, gravy, mashed potatos, and corn dinner. A great meal that is loaded with favor and very affordable. They get you in and out so that you have plently of time to shop. Try... More

We chose this joint because it was close to the train station and we were limited on time to eat and browsing Silverton. Mediocre food and slow, inattentive service. Wasn't the cleanest place either. Get off the train, if traveling to Silverton via the train, and find another restaurant. Next time we are here, we will try other places.
