“German and Texan food and live music.”
Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

We ended up at Silver Creek because there was no wait for a table on a Friday night. The service was prompt. The beer menu was extensive, about 10 on draft and an additional 50 or so in bottles. The soup of the day was green chili corn butternut squash. It arrived piping hot and the flavor combinations were spicy and savory. I had the chicken fried steak covered in cream gravy, served with mashed potatoes and corn. The steak was thick and surprisingly juicy, two attributes rarely found in that dish. My friend, a native German, had the jaeger schnitzel with spaetzle and asparagus; the dish on the menu is served with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. There was an additional charge for the substitutions. He said that the schnitzel was very good but needed more mushroom sauce and the spaetzle was homemade and the best he had eaten in Fredericksburg. My mom had the Santa Fe salad, which came with a flat iron steak and southwestern egg roll. The steak, served at salad temperature, was cooked medium rare and seasoned to perfection. It too was surprisingly tender. The chipotle ranch dressing was smoky and had just the right amount of kick to enhance the flavors of the salad. After dinner we moved to the outside area to listen to the live music. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. I ordered the Fredericksburg peach martini, which had a wonderful peach flavor without being too sweet and a hint of fresh basil. I highly recommend Silver Creek for the good food and atmosphere.

“Great beer list”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We had fun trying out the beers on their list, enjoyed some decent German food. The atmosphere is more like a contemporary bar & grille, they have plenty of non-German food. You can sit in the bar, the restaurant, outside in the front or back. Dog friendly (must have leash).

The Opa's sausage platter & saurkraut was excellent, the trout was OK, asparagus was great. Service from all waitstaff observed was very good and the entertainment on our visit was also very good. Will return.

“An Unexpected Treat”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We were driving through Texas and happened to be near the town of Fredericksburg. We stopped to get something to eat and came across the Silver Creek Saloon. They had a live band outside on the party deck. Drink specials were great, the environment was very cool. They had really cool heaters on the patio to keep warm. The food though was some of the best I have had. If you are near the area you should stop by...its worth it.

“Great music, great food”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

Monday blues night. The band were hugely talented and massively entertaining. The bass player rocked beyond belief. The food was super. I had the German sausage mix which was superb, my girl had the cashew chicken salad which was also tasty. Fabulous night, really recommend.
