Seattle Weekly's Description

For more than twenty years, Estella Potts has been operating the Silver Fork. And while the place might've already been a classic a generation ago, today it is damn near venerable—a simple, no-nonsense joint with soul and gospel music melting from the air and breakfasts done the way you dream of them when off on some bacon-and-eggs-and-pancakes-and-waffles American idyll. The room certainly shows its age, and the morning crowds can be killer (there's often a wait on the weekends), but the service is welcoming and sweet as honey, and the food makes any wait worthwhile.

    enjoy the breakfast with grits and all-but the front door is locked so people cant go out that way--a fire hazard

    The best thing this kitchen does is pancakes. Big ones, golden brown and perfect, topped with butter and slathered in syrup.

    The grits are bodacious. The "Fork" is an anchor of the Ranier Valley community. Sunday breakfast rocks.

  • Ozzy G. on 11/07/10

    The grits are the best in Seattle.

    Best Diner in town. Kind of place you find back in Mobile where I am from. HOWEVER needs more staff. Every step of the process takes forever.

    The menu will overwhelm you. There is so much different choices of food to order for breakfast, all delicious. This is southern cookin in Seattle and the prices are reasonable. Must try restaurant.

    Outside, it is gray--clotted clouds in a sky the color of old nickels. But inside, in the corner of the Silver Fork, a woman is singing gospel... More on Silver Fork »
