Went for food after a concert, midnight. The portions were large and everything was cooked to order. Food came out hot with a great presentation. Had the grilled chicken sandwich with fries. They over seasoned it with pepper, but outside of that the food was good.

Was in town for a weekend and happened to stumble upon this gem in Philly. The atmosphere and decor is wonderful, matched equally by the amazing food. We went for brunch, and sat outside. I had the chicken and waffles (delicious!) and my friend had the breakfast chorizo burrito. Both dishes were extremely tasty. When in Philly, make sure to... More

The inside looks like a traditional diner, but we sat on the outside patio which has a really nice atmosphere. The food and service were great, and the prices were reasonable. We really liked the patio vibe and stayed after dinner for a few more drinks. This is a good option for outdoor food/drinks on a nice day.

Super great food!! We were visiting friends and they stated we had to eat here. They are Philly residents. We had the shrimp burger, fried chicken, spicy chicken sandwich and hamburger. The jalapeno corn muffins are delicious. All of the food was excellent. The dessert was homemade ice cream and warmed apple pie. We all needed to be rolled out... More

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.
