“Always good”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Very good food made well. Only drawback is the busy crowds on weekend mornings. I met some ladies there and felt like we should leave because there were other people waiting for tables. Less busy weekdays. They have a coffee bard and martiini bar. They made a to-go order very well for me when I was in a rush.

Thanks for the great review!!! We have just recently expanded our waiting area so it's cozy and a larger area while you wait! The back patio has been expanded just for waiting, with a cup of coffee and a bloody. We appreciate you coming and willing to wait!! We know there are many options and are thankful for you!

“Great traditional breakfast”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Goof food, good service, good atmosphere for traditional breakfast. They could stand to upgrade their coffee from Farmer's Brothers (or similar)..their house coffee. My wife let me taste some of her cinnamon roll, have to say Johnson's Corner rolls are better by a nose.

Thanks for the nice review, we work very hard to hit on everything you said, service, food and atmosphere!!!
We actually carry Cafe Richesse Coffee a locally owned socially responsible Brazilian coffee based here in Fort Collins! I have checked the grind to make sure it is fine enough, it is usually pretty amazing!!! We are very proud of our coffee! Have you tried the Cinnamon Roll toast? It is a shining star on the menu! We slice our cinnamon roll in half and grill it with a little butter!!! Crispy shell of cinnamon and sugar on top and nice warm cinnamon roll half on the bottom. Heaven, a mile better then JC. Sincerely, thanks again for the very nice review we truly appreciate it!!!!

“Tried it for lunch...won't be back”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We thought we would try something new for lunch so we stopped in the Silver Grill. First of all, the place seemed to be filled with screaming kids. There may have just been one or two but they were very irritating. Next, the service was, frankly, geriatric. It was fifteen minutes before anyone even took our drink order and we waited almost half an hour for our food (mind you, this was lunch). Then, when the food finally came, several of the orders were wrong. To top it off, the food wasn't anything special. Bland and boring. Not even good grill food. Basically a total disappointment.

Sorry to hear you had a not so stellar lunch at the SG!! We are a breakfast and lunch restaurant so everyone should expect kids at our restaurant! We are thankful for all our customers including not so perfect kids! Sorry there were noisy kids to start your experience off wrong. As to the "geriatric" staff, we have staff that range from 20-75 and we appreciate all of them. Sometimes when we are busier then expected the young ladies can feel like it takes them 15 minutes to get beverages too! We don't want that of course but age has nothing to do with it. We try our best but we are not perfect! The day you came, Valentine's Day, was much busier then the previous year so we were a little understaffed! We are extremely sorry for that but it has nothing to do with our staff's age. We are always evaluating the days and will be better prepared next time! I have to be honest depending on what you had for lunch, all our burgers are fresh 1/2 pounders and the chicken is a 6 oz breast, it can take some time we are a sit down restaurant and prefer to make sure everything is done not rushed. Lunch can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes depending on your lunch items and party size. I am very sorry that there where errors on the orders! Tis is very frustrating especially when you waited so long! I wish you would give us another chance to make it up to you! This experience is not indicative of our normally outstanding staff and kitchen!! We have a fantastic lunch and breakfast menu!!! If I can make it up to you please personally email me at heather@silvergrill.com. I would like to show you the amazing side of this Fort Collins institute!
