“Not to be missed . . .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2010

Very attractive restaurant from the outside with great patio seating and a view of Main Street Frisco. We actually never saw the inside of the restaurant other than the entry, as we chose to sit outside. We did peak into the bar, which is in front, and it looked very nice. The patio railings were covered with flower boxes filled with colorful flowers. On the evening we were there, which was a Friday, there was an excellent 3 piece soft jazz band playing on the patio at a nice volume so that you could still carry on a conversation with your dining party. Menus were given to us by the hostess at the time we were seated, so we had plenty of time to look them over -- you could order either from the bar menu (extensive options that sounded very good) or, as we chose to do, from the dinner menu. The wait service was not the best, as the server seemed scattered/forgetful and was often nowhere in sight even though the patio tables were not all occupied; I don't know if he also had tables to tend to inside as well as on the patio or not. It took longer than it should have (maybe 10 minutes) before the waiter came to our table for the first time and took drink orders (non-alcoholic) -- I had to ask twice for sweetener for my ice tea. Then it was probably 10 minutes later before we got the bread basket, then probably another 15 minutes before our dinner order was taken. In general, service was very slow and sporadic. The most disappointing part of the service was that we received our beautiful and very tasty salads and within minutes after that, i.e. after eating only about 1/4 of our salads, our entree's came, which meant we had to abandon eating our salads and eat our entrees so that they didn't get cold in the evening air. Re: the food -- the dinner menu was quite extensive with a variety of very delicious sounding options. We started our meal with the "Award Winning Pork Green Chili", which was the best I have ever tasted. We then had salads -- Caesar, which was very good, and the Baby Arugula (with cranberries, walnuts, chevre cheese) which was outstanding; both salads were of good quantity. Our dinner entrees were the Rocky Mountain Trout -- one of us got the Almondine and the other got the Florentine -- both were outstanding as were the rice and fresh vegetables they came with. The portions of these entrees were huge -- you could easily share an entree, as each one came with two whole fish filets! Although not inexpensive, this was by far the best restaurant meal we had over three days in Frisco. We will definitely go back for a nice dinner again as well as trying the bar menu. In summary, the atmosphere was very nice and the food outstanding; the only area that needs improvement is the wait service.

“Another Great Meal at Silverheels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2010

We travel to Colorado, and to Frisco every April and one of the things we look forward to most is our dinner at Silverheels. Yes, the sidewalk outside needs repair, and if they're busy the waiter or waitress may not be able to fawn over you (we've never had that problem), but it's really about the food. Tonight the restaurant wasn't busy and our waitress was very attentive. We shared our usual Chicken Lettuce Wraps - fresh and light and yummy! I enjoyed the Raspberry Glazed Pork chop, which was tender and juicy, with stuffing and mashed potatoes. My husband had the Rubbed Salmon and BBQ scallop special. Which he enjoyed very much. Unfortunately I do have to knock them on their butter and bread - the butter was over flavored with raspberry and the bread was nothing special and on the stale side, but that won't keep us from going back!

“owner operated makes for a great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2009

We have been to Silverheels many times over the years going back to their previous Wilderness location. The owner is always onsite ensuring quality food and service at reasonable prices. I am not a meat eater, but the seafood particularly the ahi tuna and many different trout versions are outstanding. Great location on main street in Frisco with ambience. Also, a very good happy hour with discounted appetizers,drinks,etc. If you like good sushi, try Kemosabe next door- same owner.
