The two of us stumbled in to the Silver Nugget for breakfast this past weekend. I usually will do a Tripadvisor check before visiting a hotel or restaurant, but we were hungry, and the Silver Nugget looked appealing from the outside.
The Good: The taste of the food.
The Bad: Several things about the Silver Nugget put us off. First was the frantic pace of our waitress. She rushed around so fast, and seemed so panicked, that we couldn't relax during the entire meal. And for a Sunday morning, the restaurant wasn't very busy. Next was the fellow in the cowboy hat with the black lab at his heels. We could only guess that he was the owner of the place. He spent about 10 minutes casually wandering around the restaurant with a fly swatter, lazily smacking flies wherever he saw them: the (empty) table next to us, the bar, the window behind the poor couple sitting up front. It was beyond gross and ridiculous. It was comical (but not in a good way). Finally, the presentation of the food was weak. The food tasted pretty good, but did not look very appealing when it was hurriedly put before us.
Next time out, we'll check reviews on Tripadvisor before stopping to eat. As for the Silver Nugget, just keep walking.
