We've been going to Silver Spring for their sour beef for many years. But this time, something seemed to be off. We showed up at prime time Friday evening when all the other area restaurants were on an hour wait and immediately got a table. Unfortunately, they put us in the back room when there were several open tables in... More

We absolutely love this place. My husband has ordered just about everything on the menu. I can't not order the sour beef & dumplings ~ don't order the half size ~ you'll want more to take home. Also, the crab pretzel is AMAZING!!!

We had a very pleasant lunch. The food was very tasty and the service was wonderful. And we were not rushed as some places like to do.

The service was terrible. We arrived and we were able to look over the entire menu before the waitress took our drink order 10 mins later. So we ordered drinks and our food (just got appetizers). Our drinks came out after another 10 mins. When the food came out, the plates they brought were dirty and we had no silverware... More

We showed up at 11:15 on a Saturday. The website advertised that they open 7 days a week at 11.we tried the doors and they were locked. Nobody came to help us or explain why they were closed. The most irritating part is the website which says "we are not responsible for any incorrect information or typos." What? How do... More

This is consistently good food. I enjoy the chicken tenders, wings, crab pretzel, etc. Staff is generally nice. My only complain thus far is the cream of crab soup which I had this past visit. It was clearly prepackaged and in my opinion was really bad - do not get it. Other than this another good experience.

It's bar food and it's not that good. I would get the wings or burger or chicken sandwich and avoid everything else. Some people like the Sour Beef and dumplings, but I'm not a fan.

Silver Spring Mining Company has a terrific lunch special. You can get a three course meal for around $14. My meal consisted of crab soup, sour beef and a large dumpling, slaw, and rice pudding for dessert. All the food tasted great and I could barely finish the amount I was given. Service was excellent.

Silver Spring Mining company is a theme bar/restaurant with, you guessed it, a mining theme. Lots of wood siding, mining photos inside, industrial lighting. You'll find typical bar food with local specialties like crab cakes, stuffed fish and they are most known for sour beef and dumplings. On the night we were there they featured oyster stew but were sold... More
