A restaurant-sports bar atmosphere with TVs and football games playing. They serve appetizers, salads, burgers and entrees. It's much bigger than it looks! Everyone enjoyed their meals, especially the chicken dishes. Service was slow and leisurely so enjoy your time there.

I've heard alot of good things about Silver Spring House so we had to give it a try. Nice place to catch a game and a flavorful piece of chicken. Good eats and friendly service. More of a bar feel and a little noise. I was fine with it, but if u want a quite dinner it's not the place. It is a place that I recommend for some good chicken.

We enjoyed our meal and service very much. Since the weather was in the upper 70's on Nov. 8, all the windows were open and a lot of outside dining was available. This made for a more enjoyable experience with the fresh air coming in and less worries about covid spreading.

Good food and we had a friendly server, but the server assistant had her nose uncovered the entire time. Not once did she fully cover her face with a mask. I felt very uncomfortable and it definitely soured my first experience at this place. I will now hesitate to go back to this place...

The food is always good at this place. I love the patio. It is covered and seats many people. We got the chicken dinner which was really good. We also had the club sandwich and the tuna salad sandwich. Everything was good. We topped it off with the chocolate cake. Social distancing was good here. I would definitely recommend this place.

Been going to Joe's place for years. Love the menu and the service....a real Cheers type place for some of us. As we all can improve on things...one comment for the management team. Please have your servers present the check after the meal. Hate to say it, but the experience is diminished when the server lays the check on the table when the guests are 1/2 finished with their meals, then saying "no rush" on the check. Not sure I get it...if there's no rush, bring the check when the meal is complete. And, maybe could have "up sold" dessert had there been a little more patience. Apart from that, all great at the SSH!!

Delicious as always! Their Asian chicken salad is delicious! The fried cod sandwich and pot pie are two of our favorites! They've added aarge tent to allow for more distance between tables.Love their dedication to honoring those who served our country!

I did not take any photos. :( the place is beautiful outside with flowers everywhere! This is an open air concept. It is sports bar like. Says Cincinnatis best chicken. Hubby had chicken, baked potato and salad. He said it was good chicken. I had the spinach salad with chicken. Lots of Spinach!! Little onion, a boiled egg...(the yolk was about as white as the white part)! (I have chickens, so am used to REALLY yellow yolks! Bacon and a hot bacon dressing. It was good. But not worth the 16.00 price!! They have those high topped tables (that I find challenging being 5'2")....but there was more eating areas in the parking lot under tents. Friendly atmosphere though!!!

This is the place to go to have some great food and drinks, my Blackened Tilapia was cooked Perfectly and the Margaritas were very good and a little potent. Great atmosphere and great service with a smile. I would give them 10 stars if I could. I will definitely be returning here again soon! Highly Recommend!

Service was excellent even though a small part of our order came to us wrong. Our server, Reagan??? (Spelling)..... was awesone. She fixed the mistake immediately. Excellent atmosphere. Hoppin place. Good food. I recommend it.

Great food and service, as always. Only disappointment was our seating. Seats were available inside and "under the tent". "Under the tent" was outside the tent. On the asphalt with small umbrellas which didn't provide the needed shade. Throughout our meal we watched multiple groups refuse the seating, worse yet was those trying to move the umbrellas to enjoy their seating. Yet the hostesses kept trying to sit people at these tables. The food and service was great, but baking in the sun wasn't.

Some of the best roasted chicken in the city. LOTS of outdoor seating, the and servers are generally pretty friendly.They have popcorn to snack on while you wait, and a large bar. The prices are pretty reasonable, and almost always worth it (get the chicken).The only downside is because it is so popular parking can be a massive issue.

It's not the price of the cod sandwich for 1399 it's that they have not improved about Long John Silver's. It was the most bland fish I've ever had in fact. Very disappointed I heard many good things about this restaurant but I do not recommend the cod. This is my first time eating here both my father and I ordered it and he did not even finish his sandwich. It got better when I ordered the hot sauce but they really need to make an improvement for the price. I should've ordered the chicken that's what they're known for .

We got carryout and the food we got was good. I had to wait about 5 minutes for someone to come in the carryout area. When wife was missing half her toppings for her salad and I was missing my baked potato. I was given butter and sour cream for it.

Best chicken and ribs combo i have ever had, but the chicken was the star on that plate. The chicken is a must have, definitely getting more chicken next time.

Patio canopy, in the summer is a great addition. Kind of like a beer tent. Lots of extra seating great experience. Big fans to keep you cool. And great food. Wide range of drinks.

There is A lot to be said where even if the owner and staff may not pronounce your name correctly they remember the important intricacies of running a favorite stop along the highway of life for families, singles and business diners which is also a well loved social local gathering spot for a cocktail.If you are looking for just that place to call your own casual but not tacky dining spot. It's a must to check out Silver Spring House (a lot of locals refer to the restaurant as Silver Spring Chicken House. Whatever you call it you will agree the delectable house favorites, a happy hour cocktail, or an outing after sports or a family celebration you can never go wrong when choosing to dine in or carry-out.The decor is casual indoor/ outdoor without the tired and overdone Magarittavile feel. Regardless of the season you can relax and enjoy catch a sporting event from one of the one, two, three, four bars or more oh heck I lost count.The food is not just delicious but consistent which is imperative and the secret ingredient which keeps regulars and new customers feeling right at home. Drum roll please....is the owners Joe and Joe ( complete opposites except both believe in customer satisfaction not just service, employee engagement and a good product.) to management,and each staff member from the front of the house to the kitchen and grounds keeper are trying to get it right. Photos to come

I've been going her since I was a kid and I've never been disappointed! The foods consistently delicious and the menu has a great variety. Spacious dinning areas and multiple bars don't hurt either. Last note, the restaurant is quite popular so I'd plan to arrive sooner than later

Review №23

The chicken is consistently great with flavor. We both had fish and neither the salmon or cod were spot on and you need to have the red mashed potatoes with broccoli, perfection! And the pictures and signed instruments are pretty cool too! Great history and good eats!

We were there late in the afternoon when it was relatively quiet. We sat under the tent area, and with the fans going, it was pleasant. Our server was friendly and efficient and, as always, the food was delicious. No complaints!

Good was excellent with very decent lunch portions. 4/5 is only because the price stings a little bit. It's definitely worth it but makes it an "every so often" place for us. A must-try without a doubt.

I go out to dinner to get away from the craziness of the world, right now. While I am happy that you have a cause, political affiliation, or statement, I dont want to see it, while you are at work, whether I agree, or not.

Ordered the Fiesta Chicken Salad. It was just OK. The salsa tasted more like raw tomatoes. Our table also shared some chicken wings. Those were pretty good. Service was very fast and friendly. Would recommend and I would try again.

Grilled chicken can be dry, even at the best places, but theirs is always good and juicy!

Review №65

Excellent chicken. Not fried. Everything else is above average, but nothing noteworthy which is okay. Service is solid. Family friendly. Good sized place but is usually busy. There's been a number of nights we went elsewhere because it was too busy. Has a unique 4 season outdoor seating area that makes you feel like you're on vacation if you catch it on right day which there's approximately 10 of those in a year here in southern ohio. Price isn't cheap, but not overpriced either. I'm sure you can find cheaper chicken elsewhere but they have it down, especially if want non-fried. Only reason we don't go there more often is because it's out of the way and we don't want to chance it being too crazy.

Review №68

It was good. Was it the best chicken I've had in town? No. Onion rings seemed to be of the frozen variety, which is another ding against their rating. Baked potato was just ok. I probably won't go out if my way to go back.

This place, man. Great food and good atmosphere. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. Note to the owner, our waitress was fantastic, she was also expecting soon. She doesn't need to be on her feet, take care of your people and they will take care of you! Send her home for that R&R.

Very interesting place. Lots of Seating in an outdoor setting, more high tops, bar like. Then you go inside and it's really nice, big comfy booths, done up really nicely. The food is priced great, about $16 for half a chicken with two sides. Even though the place was packed, our food came out quickly, all hot, correct and honestly some of the best tasting food I've had in a long time. I definitely recommend.

Excellent place to eat. The food is really good. The chicken is prepared really well no matter how you order it. The atmosphere is great because you feel at home. The service is great, always friendly and personable. Convenient location. Only thing preventing five stars is the price. The food is a little expensive but other than that overall its great!

Review №94

I loved it. Very pleasantly surprised, it was really great. And it isn't just my opinion - the place was very busy, so obviously a lot of other people think so too.I suspect its from the total commitment to whatever the restaurant focuses on resulting in close to perfection, all the way from supporting the national breast cancer month of October to fantastic and helpful staff, to super clean and well maintained facilities, to just the right level of audio from the numerous TVs and games being played, to being able to find a table even though it was really busy, to a great menu with exceptionally reasonable prices and high quality food. You won't be disappointed with this choice - Highly Recommended!!!
