Silas Dent’s Steakhouse is a good restaurant, with a variety of steaks and seafood. They are also in a perfect spot for food and drinks before the live comedy show next door. We had a great time.

Thank you for the nice review. Our steaks are hand-cut in house, we have Grouper right from the Gulf of Mexico 3 times a week from a local fisherman for great freshness! Come back and see us again. Team Silas
