Always wanted to try Silky's bc of the location on the river. So one beautiful night recently we went there for dinner. We chose to sit outside for the reasons stated and as we passed through the interior spaces I was glad be didn't stay in as the p[lace looked like it was long overdue for some renovations. Once seated... More

We were invited to this restaurant with a rather mid size group. The wait staff was willing to be helpful, but one told you one thing and the other told you something different. We moved twice to different tables to make room for others, but we dd not see others. Just not getting there act together. The food was set... More

Waited over an hour for a fish sandwich! Waitress was very nice and i know it wasnt her fault. However, even for a friday night, the place wasnt that crowded. I just couldn't understand how a fish sandwich would take so long to come out. Were they catching it fresh from the river..i doubt it! We cancelled our order and... More

Silky's is located right on the Allegheny River which is perhaps the only reason to go there. We stopped by midday and midweek for lunch after visiting the Bayenhof Museum. Our server, Colleen, was very attentive and professional but the overall experience was not positive. NOTE that this establishment would appear to cater to the party crowd as evidenced by... More

We were just there for drinks so I can't speak to the food but this establishment has been open for many many years and it has weathered the storm! Bartender was excellent and very attentive to our big group.

We were long time customers of this restaurant but now we agree with most of the reviewers....the food used to make us overlook the dirty appearance but not anymore...and the prices keep going up and that would be ok except the quality keeps getting worse...and the service??? Well, the preceding reviews say it all....we used to go there 3-4 times... More

Went here with husband and daughter. We were all very hungry. Waited for 1 1/2 hours for food to be delivered. Waitress did ask if we wanted a salad or something since we were waiting so long. Said no we just wanted to eat our meals at this point. My daughter asked to speak to the manager. He approached her... More
