“High priced bland food....don't waste your money!”

Shady Lady Restaurant
Ranked #26 of 33 Restaurants in Silverton
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Since when should a plain hot dog or grilled cheese cost $9? And there's nothing special about it either. My husband ordered the roast beef & real mashed potatoes, but complained there was absolutely no flavor or seasoning. The restaurant was cluttered & dirty. The only good thing was the speed of service.

We rode the Durango and Silverton Railroad and had seen an advertisement about the Shady Lady having home cooked food and reasonable prices. Apparently microwaved means home cooked to them. My "Chicken Salad" had frozen chicken strips that had been microwaved, some to the point of being so hard you couldn't eat them and my husbands hamburger was a frozen patty that had been passed over a grill. Not worth the $20 it cost for the two.

We rode the Durango and Silverton Railroad and unfortunately stopped into the first restaurant that we encountered. We were enticed by the idea of the hot roast beef sandwich which the Shady Lady was offering. The meal had been precooked and kept "warm" on a steam tray. If you want to experience the ambiance of what used to be a house of prostitution buy a drink.... but eat there? Only as a last resort.

This restaurant is just around the corner from where the train stops. It used to be a brothel in the old mining days but today it is a cute little restaurant. The food was very good and the service was fast. Menu is mostly sandwiches both hot and cold.

Our corn dog was still frozen, Reuben was worst I've ever had, never offered a refill, and they don't take credit cards. The only thing shady is the people who run it.
