Unfortunately, I wasn't able to dine here due to the disrespect and insulting ways of the hostess . I decided to dine here with a friend. We entered into the restaurant a gentleman approached us and asked did we need seating for 2. We replied yes. He told us to sit where we liked. We sat. The hostess abruptly approaches... More

I looked this place up online before coming to Philadelphia and was so excited to try it out. The food was ok and the staff weren't friendly at all. I did however love the patio and vibe outside. I can now say been there, done that.

We drove 20 minutes from the airport and was very excited to eat! The food was delicious and the music was... More

Whenever we are in the city (hungry) we know we can stop by Silk City and get something good. I love that their specials change frequently, and match the seasonal produce, so you know you are getting something fresh. Stopped by this weekend, and had a nice brunch on the patio. Each table has it's own umbrella, so you can... More

This restaurant FAR exceeded expectations. The service was laid back but excellent. The dish that stood out (2 of 3 diners had it) was the shrimp and grits. Best I've had. The Reuben was also a hit. If you're thinking about it, don't hesitate.

Great place to take the family for Mother's Day brunch. Even though the outside seating is limited the staff always makes accommodations and is courteous and the food is original and very good.

My wife and I had an early dinner here prior to attending a concert in Philly. What a great experience! The interior is fun and classic diner atmosphere, but they also have a cool outdoor patio. We sat inside. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful in choosing menu items. I had the salmon and my wife had the... More

Delicious shrimp & grits, & smoked salmon eggs benedict. But the side potatoes were a tad salty. Very good beer selection. Service was very good. Definitely a place to visit when in Philly. Got outdoor seating also.

I was visiting the Edgar Allan Poe historical site today and they close from 12 to 1 p.m. I wasn't finished with my time at the museum so I asked about a good place to eat and the park ranger on duty suggested the Silk City Diner. I am so glad I went when I did because the place was... More
