Convenient lunch spot for downtown ...
Convenient lunch spot for downtown workers. Sandwiches are fairly simple, deli meet and garden, nothing too special. Don't bother with a sandwich, go straight for the Chicken Chili. It's like classic Cincinnati chili but with a twist, being chicken instead of beef. Lots of flavor and very hearty.

Love this place! I go here often for lunch and have  somewhat became a regular. The staff is very nice and the food is deelish. I wish this place was open on weekends especially since I frequent downtown a lot. But overall great place for good food, good service and affordable!

Such an easy and delicious lunch. I order on the ritual app and it's done by the time I leave my desk and walk in their front door. Their soup + half a sandwich for $9 option is THE BEST. I cannot recommend the buffalo chicken wing soup enough!

Picked up 4 different soups, tomato basil, cream of mushroom, Italian wedding and chicken gumbo. All were very delicious. Plenty of tasty ingredients just like homemade.

The black bean soup is perfect and they make some fine sandwiches and fresh salads. The staff is genuinely friendly and provides excellent service. One can tell that they really care about your experience.

The place is clean and well lit.

This was only my second visit and I look forward to many more to come.

This is my go to lunch spot. I've worked downtown for over 25 years and this is now one of my favorite places for a quick lunch!  Salads are huge, sandwiches are fresh and soup is hot. Employees are super friendly, it is reasonably priced and service is fast.

Great location good parking, hours are great, menu is terrific. I like the televisions. So sometimes I go there when there's a team on that I like and I'll eat supper There.

Great variety of Cincinnati classics and comfort food. Lots of options and substitutions in the form of sandwich, soup, and salad combinations.

Very fast & healthy takeout or sit down
Silver Ladle is one of my favorite restaurants in Anderson. It has 5+ soups ready to rock at all times. The mushroom soup is to DIE for! The salads & sandwiches are delicious and mix fresh ingredients with grilled meats and items. The Silver Ladle...More ... read more

My wife and I go there on a regular basis. The food is always fresh. The chicken chili never disappoints. I'm glad to have this small Mom and Pop store here. Not a chain fan so I'm glad that this is really supporting the small business owner.

I can't say enough good things about this place.  I probably eat here or pick food up from here more often than other places downtown.  Primary because it's fast/easy and the food has always been good.  

If you're looking to check this place out during lunch I'd recommend getting in on the earlier side ahead of noon.  Or come

Food is 5 star, just wish they had put more effort into the dining area. Stark cement floor and uninviting metal chairs don't invite you to linger.

Great Sandwiches and even better soup, and if you feel like a cold beer with your meal they have you covered!

Caleb Porter via - Sep 3, 2018
Good chili. I really do like their soup as well. I think I would be inclined to give 5 stars but for the ambiance. It doesn't feel like the right vibe for a soup place. When I think of soup I think cozy, homey, and warm. But Silver Ladle is kind if cold and industrial looking I think if they had a look that more closely matched the f ... read more

3.5 stars. Solid lunch option downtown, normally pretty fast and the food is consistent. I find the soups and chili to be quite good, the other items are more average in quality. Almost always under $10 with a drink. I like they bring the food to you if you are dining in. Crackers at the table.
