The food is average, but the wait staff is awesome! They are famous for their omlettes and they make them so huge you can't possibly finish one.

We walked into the restaurant that was a referral on Easter morning. It was quiet and quaint surroundings. Looked your typical northern diner. We ordered coffee and juices and waited to put the rest of our order in. The place was very hot it there and all we tried to do was open a window to let a little fresh... More

Employees are verbally and openly brutalized by owner and wife. Floor is nasty right into the kitchen. What ever you do don't park close to the front door you will be called out. Secondly, when seated do NOT look at the ceiling you will puke! How this passes inspection??? The building has visible holes and your better off not driving... More

We're locals and have been to Silva's a few times. Each has been an adventure and not in a good way. The menu is basic diner food, prepared without care. The staff seems tired and unpleasant. The condition of the restaurant is poor .... the place needs new paint, new furnishings, new decor, new staff, new everything. It's hard to... More

We went for breakfast and when we sat down it was not busy. It took well over 35-40 mins for our food to come out and it was just ok. Coffee was absolutely terrible. Waitress was ok. Would not eat here again.

Older business but super friendly waitress and good food. We went for good food and having a attentive fun waitress was all we needed. Our waitress was so nice and fun I thought she should've left with us to join the family reunion!

This is a great breakfast joint but unfortunately it is pretty dirty inside. The staff is fairly friendly however the owner cooks which is ok but his wife runs the cash register and she can be pretty crude most of the time. If you can get past the dirty walls and windows the food is pretty good. It always seems... More

Dirty walls, dirty floor, poor food, overpriced. This is not a place to which I would return. The coffee, however, was very good.

Very good food- but pretty poor service usually- go with low expectations of waitresses and the hostess;You may wait to pay the tab for a while too- but the food is very good for American breakfast.
