The Silver Stallion has been around for years. It's your typical Greek type dinner with a wide selection of choices to choose from. Prices are fair and food portions tend to be on the larger side. Good place for a quick breakfast or lunch.

I was spending the night nearby and did not want to get in the car and fight more traffic, so, since this was within walking distance, I decided to give it a go. Seems to be mostly a Greek restaurant since the proprietor was speaking what sounded like Greek to me, but they do have other types of food also... More

Great place for couples, families, or large groups (private rooms)! Everything on the menu from breakfast to dinner and very good reasonable prices! May of the wait staff has have been there for years and are always friendly and courteous! Quick service or dine at your leisure! Reservations for private room usually.

Had a fantastic breakfast. The ham off the bone was the best I have had. The service was friendly and fun. We highly recommend this place.

One of the previous reviewers has said "Bland surroundings". Yes, I agree if you are comparing it to the Bellagio Cafe in Vegas - no water fountains and no floral extravaganza! But a very clean and friendly neighborhood restaurant. I've eaten there about 6 times in the last year. Never disappointed! Great salads, always wonderful luncheon and dinner specials. The... More

Stayed at the hotel next to restaurant. Food was ok, atmosphere was dated and customers appeared to be older locals. Wait staff was friendly and the prices were decent. Probably would not go back unless I was staying at hotel.

The Silver Stallion's building, menu and atmosphere are generic and bland. It seems to appeal to an older crowd, maybe because it is inexpensive, nothing fancy and nothing exciting or surprising. For me that's a big turn off. It's like a million other restaurants with nothing to distinguish itself or brag about. It's not a place I'd recommend for meals.

We have not found one thing on this menu that we don't like. The egg lemon soup is the best (but I think only served on Tuesday & Saturday). We eat here at least every other month (it was more frequent before we had kids). It is also our tradition to eat here on the day that we get back... More

I went to the Silver Stallion for lunch toady and had their half slab of ribs special along with a cup of chicken noodle soup, fries, and a small dish of ice cream for dessert. The ribs were the best I have had in a long time. The meat just fell off the bone and they were not too heavily... More
