New business spotlight on Silver Thorn Tavern

The Silver Thorn Tavern is Hughesville’s latest downtown spot for dining and social gatherings.

Since opening its doors in June, word has gotten around about its fine food and good customer service, according to its owners.

“Our reviews are great,” Danny Thomas said. “We have a well-known chef. We do weekly dinner specials.”

Co-owners Thomas, his wife Jennifer, Greg Sullivan and Vince Grieco are striving to bring the best restaurant experience possible to customers.

The business, located at 120 N. Main St., seats about 120 people and includes a full-size bar and banquet room.

The restaurant, Thomas said, is ideal for family and other group gatherings.

“We specialize in crab cakes and steaks and burgers,” he said.

Overall, the menu offers reasonably priced food for patrons who hail from Hughesville and many surrounding communities to enjoy the food and atmosphere, Thomas added.

Jennifer said the restaurant’s excellent staff has been invaluable in helping the restaurant become a go-to place.

“It helps bring people back in,” she said.

Silver Thorn serves mostly dinners, but also lunches on Saturdays and Sundays.

Evening specials include Tex Mex Night, Wings Night and Homestyle Night.

Thomas said the restaurant has become a stop-off spot for customers after local sporting events.

The business is named for Rachel Silverthorne, the lone volunteer who rode Capt. John Brady’s white horse through the settlements of Muncy Creek to help guide the settlers to safety during the Revolutionary War.
