“Cheap & Cheap quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

Great grill cheese! Nothing else looked good- the place has an odd smell to it, like old grease. Nice owners!

“The Shady Lady Restaurant is a No-No”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2011

Our trip to Silverton was Monday, August 29, 2011
As you first get off the train, the “Shady Lady” is a cute old lady standing outside her restaurant to lure the tourists inside.
They do not except credit/debit cards, so I had to use the ATM machine for quick cash.
I had the corned beef sandwich.
The lavatory was very dark and very small. I couldn’t tell if it was clean or not.
Lucky for me the public restroom was down the street when I needed it, and I needed to use it fast, if you know what I mean.
I think the "Shady Lady" want cash so you don’t have a receipt if you want to come back and complain – there is no record.
The "Shady Lady" should be shut down by the Health Department.
Other merchants are missing out on sales because you don’t
have time to shop because you are spending time in the restroom.
So, walk further up the street where the streets are paved.

“I PUKED IT ALL UP!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

Went on the silverton durango train to silverton. Kids werein hungry when an older lady beckoned, "homemade mashed potatoes and roast beef sandwiches -best in town." Don't go there! The food was terrible! My wife and I ate the roast beef while my oldest boy ate the turkey. He got explosive diarrhea! I spent 20 minutes puking at the side of a building. This place should be shut down before someone gets hurt! It gives silverton a bad name! Be afraid...very afraid! Don't listen to the singing siren, or you too will be doomed!

“Well...it was edible.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2011

Small portions. High prices. Definitely food that ranks alongside school cafeteria quality. You're best bet when getting off the Silverton train...keep on walking.

“OMG - The worst experience ever.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

Upon arrival via train to this shanty town full of rich history, we were excited to stop at one of the last historic places in Silverton. The service was fair, however, the food was HORRIBLE. Being a vegatarian I ordered the grilled cheese. I received 2 pieces of bread toasted in a toaster and 2 thinly sliced pieces of chese in the middle....NOT MELTED. My husband ordered a turkey sandwich.....no flavor and it was definately the cheapest processed turkey they could find. I told the server it was horrible, and was given a shrug and "you are paying anyway". WILL NOT RECOMMEND.
