A little over-priced in view of the size of most portions. When I spend $8 for an appetizer of fried mushrooms, and the same for poppers, I expect a bit more than the amount we were served at the Silver Moon. Either that or a...More

Went on the hotel's recommendation. Retro diner on old Route 66. My wife went mexican and I stayed American with a country fried steak. Both were very good. The staff was very friendly. Overall a good place to eat.

Delicious full portions! Friendly service! Cute gift shop! Chili is a little too hot if you don't eat it regularly.

We chose Mexican, but the menu offered items for any palate. Staff was pleasant, food was great, and we loved browsing the little gift shop. I wish they had their fun coffee mugs in stock!

This place does not look like much, however the food and the staff more than made up for it. They had the best fajitas I have ever had and some pretty good craft beers as well.
