Like this place very much... – The band and dj that play, keeps the crowd going. the drinks are great and have just enough alchol in them. The food is the cherry on top. They are a great place to be, and so much fun on Thirsdays. Thats whwn me and a few girls like to go out.
Always a favorite – Everything on the menu is good! Order anything, and you'll probably like it. The wings are excellent. The chocolate bread pudding is definitely worth ordering, but be advised- they give you a lot. Waitstafff service is generally good, and they'll be happy to recommend something on the menu. The atmosphere is retro-pop-modern, with an exciting club at night. I always have a great time when I go with my friends!
Editorial Review – Enjoy live entertainment and dancing as well as a solid "diner" menu at Silk City.
Most amazing place in America's most gastronomically underrated town – I was taken there by friends, two young locals , that explained to me, a New Yorker ,that Silk City would be the place to eat after 8, when everything is closed. It was spectacular. I paid 100$ for 3 of us including, drinks and a tip . God bless the food revolution that has taken place last decade and elevated simple dining into a new level. Everything was prepared to perfection, with familiar favorites as pork chops and meatloaf. Waitress was somehow hard to reach in not so busy place. That is the only negative remark.
I wonder how noone rated it yet, I have subscribed to this web site just to do so. It was that good.
So glad they reopened... – On a Friday night, we lucked out getting a booth at around 9:00p.m. The music was 80's pop and the service was friendly and prompt. I had the lentil burger which was very good and we split the buffalo chicken salad. Tastey! It's good to know that Silk City is back because Bar at North Third is getting more and more packed. They both have similiar menus.
Go See Lauren – I love to frequent this spot when I am in town. Great food and ambience, and you cant go wrong with the waitstaff. Lauren always waits on me and never lets me down.
Great Night Spot – Me, my girlfriend and my friend just went to Silk City for the first time tonight. It was really cool, I deffinitely recommend it. My friend and I had burgers, which were excellent, and my girlfriend had the fries which were pretty great too. It has a fun grungy atmosphere, being a small diner in Nothern Liberties. Check it out, it's open 24 hours on the weekends and til midnight on weeknights.
The French Toat Rocks! – My husband and I go every weekend. The food is typical diner fare which is fine by me but what keeps us coming back is the DRAMA! Its so much fun to watch the wait staff interact with each other. They're hilarious. Food AND entertainment...cant beat it! I love Silk City...
silk – the food is usually pretty good - sweet potato fries and a milkshake are so good together
It's a cute nostalgic American diner
Great Food!! – I used the Citysearch to find a good place to eat breakfast early in the morning, as I was picking up my brother at the Airport at 6:30AM. I decided that we would try this place. What a pleasant surprise!! We both got exactly what was ordered, the service was promt and courteous, and the food was very good and the portions were large. The prices are extremely reasonable, and although the decor was a bit lacking, its a great place for breakfast!!
