A couple of things about this place caught my eye as I was traveling in St. James over the last little while. The first is that the restaurant has a large black awning that really stands out against the building. The second is they advertise themselves as having the best BBQ ribs in town, This…Continue readingSilver Heights Restaurant + Lounge
