    This newly become hipster diner is fun, with it's new beer garden that is really funky. Saw the owner means a lot. Food is comfort and good real friendly staff and good prices. Live bands some night

    The pork and sweet potato empañadas were to die for! Cool and relaxing atmosphere. Not only popular because of DDD, but it's actually well liked by the locals.

    Silk City is not only a great spot to grab some night-time munchies, it also has a great dance floor just feet away from the diner. Thursday and Saturday nights are the wildest. Read more

    I swear by their brunch! Fried green tomatoes are a must, whenever they are available. The shrimp and grits are almost like heaven. I have heard that the pulled pork hash is obnoxiously good.

    Have had fantastic specials and breakfasts here! For vegetable lovers: more choices please, with less salt and oil. The spinach last night was intensely salty and oily. And I love the flavor of salt!

    You'll find some pretty amazing fried chicken and corn bread here. It was a complete surprise for me. A night of dancing, beers and their chicken will put a smile on your face.

    Love Silk City. Great funky diner feel, fantastic food. Love the large backyard for dining al fresco. Good beer selection.

    Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and greens are covered in a little bit of honey whichis a game-changer. Their classic burger also great.

    This typical looking diner serves up anything but standard brunch fare on the inside. Order the smothered chicken and waffles and a Pimms Cup: Pimms, fresh lime, ginger beer, cucumber and mint.

    Silk City's duck-confit spring rolls, pulled pork empanadas and shrimp-and-crab pot stickers made for crispy golden highlights in a 2008 episode of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.

    The Jaded Ruby is sooo good! It's like grapefruit juice with a surprise. Also the Bloody Mary is perfect too. You can't go wrong with either one first thing in the morning ;)

    Eat from their incredible menu outside on the awesome patio. Or do what we did and dance in the rain. :)

    The enclosed garden is magical! The heat lamps make it a toasty and beautiful spot for a fall dinner.

    If you're looking for a hip diner with a hipper menu and a place to dance the night away on a Saturday to indie, pop, rock & hip-hop without the cliche fist pumping crowd, than this is your spot.

    There are those among us who would sooner die than drink inside Silk City, but we love sitting out in the beer garden. It’s always a friendly mix of people, and good for large groups.

    Delicious higher end diner food. Service isn't awesome and it can get crowded, but food and beer are good.

    The gravy French fries taste even better with a local brew (try the Kenzinger), and they're delivered by girls with skirts so short they look like they're made with cocktail napkins.

    Awesome Outdoor Dining. Order a fresh limeade margarita, kick back, and marvel that you’re on a tropical island on an otherwise grim stretch of Spring Garden. Read more

    Drinks were mixed well. Spinach was delicious. Macaroni dish needs some more imagination. Flavor was bland and the center was dry. On the dance floor side, crowd was great. Bartenders were friendly

    Great coffee & desserts. Heavy handed with hot peppers in/on appetizers & desserts. Not everyone a hot pepper fan, limiting available choices.

    This place is a 3 in one. Club/old-school diner/outdoor garden. A little gem for sure.

    More of a diner themed bar, but the fried chicken is excellent as well as the coffee and pie.

    Relax out back in the "beer garden" - since it's summertime I highly recommend getting yourself a 19th hole (sweet tea vodka and silk's homemade lemonade).
