They have 6 regular beers and a seasonal on tap. We started with a sampler followed by a pint of Double IPA (Whoop Pass). I am an IPA girl myself but I generally enjoyed their porter the most. I was disappointed in both of the IPAs. The quality didn't seem much higher then what you would get in a chain brewery (such as BJ's or RAM). Also, I would like to note that their glasses smelled like detergent so that didn't help the drinking experience much.
The food selection is large and quite good. I had BBQ short ribs that came with coleslaw and bottomless fries. My friend had a pulled pork sandwich and believes himself to be a pulled pork expert. He thought it was a top notch sandwich.
The wait staff and the other customers seem to be very friendly. Someone even offered to let me share their dessert.
If you are in the neighbor you should try Silver City especially since there does not seem to be much else to choose from but I would not go out of my way to get there.

The Silver City Beer in general is simply outstanding. My favorite is their Phat, a Strong Scotch Ale, with their cask Stout and seasonals coming in as strong seconds. They have a great selection and while I don't as a rule do IPA's in their case very occasionally I make an exception. The only downside of this place is that it is usually crowded, and almost everyone has an Ale of some sort in their hand except the kids who get refillable soft drinks.
The food is two cuts above average for Pubs and they do run weekly and monthly specials, with some very unique seafood and pasta plates.
The staff is always knowledgeable about both the beer and the food and always pleasant.
The atmosphere is friendly and you can always exchange pleasantrys with the people at the next table.
If I lived closer, I'd be their daily.

Silverdale is the unknown city
It lies across Puget Sound (that big body of water that separates Seattle proper & its environs from the smaller islands and land masses that make up what the world knows collectively as "Seattle") and north of Bremerton, the more populus and well-known of the two.
But Silverdale has what Bremerton lacks -- a first class brewery.
Silver City Brewery has been around since 1996 - before that, the Houmes' brothers had a hamburger stand but found it diffcult to "put the big...chains out of business" so they stopped trying. Now, they provide a place to eat good food and drink great beer, thanks in part to brewmaster Don Spencer.
"From the beginning," they say, " we wanted to develop our own complete line of beers."
OK. How about Imperial Stout, Winter Bock, Panther Lake Porter, Whoop Pass Double IPA, Duckabush Brown Ale, Nutcracker and Fat Woody barleywine, Irish Stout, Sasquatch Stout, Big Daddy ESB, Copper Mountain Bock & Keiler Bier, Oktoberfest, Gold Mt. Pilsner - and those are just their seasonals.
Wife Persimmon & I delighted in a 6-pack sampler than included the Golddigger Golden, Clear Creek Pale Ale, Ridgetop Red (full of caramel and creamy / a true German Alt beer!), the jet-black and bitter-sweet chocolate taste of the Sasquatch Stout (and not with a watery consistency like so many stouts) and finally, their Fat Scotch Ale, perhaps one of the best I've ever tasted...and I'm not the only one who things that; this little brew has taken Gold Medals in the Great American Beer Festival and National Association of Brewer's not once, not twice but 6 times (2002-06). Smelling of peat moss, tasting like a cold, snowy night in front of a fire, this Scotch warms you from the first sip or long pull. There is simply nothing wrong with it.
Nor is there much wrong about Silver City - except for its location (another strip mall on another busy main street and it's huge - I'm talking "Target" big), the Houmes' brothers try very hard to live up to their mission: "to treat every guest as though they were guests in our home" and "to treat each other the way we would want to be treated."

Silver City is at the edge of a shopping area and off the main drag. Parking is limited near the entrance but there is plenty space in the adjacent lot. There is a good size bar and several tall tables as well as many TV's. The dining area is large with both tables and booths. A small adjacent patio has tables also.
There is a good selection house brews, several seasonals and a few guest taps. I enjoyed both the 'Fat' Scotch Ale and the seasonal stout.
The menu includes a lot of nice Pacific NW specialties as well as standard pub fare, pasta and pizza.
