Description: The Pickle Barrel Restaurant is one of the longest continually running...
The Pickle Barrel Restaurant is one of the longest continually running restaurants in Silverton, Since 1971! The building is also one of the oldest masonary builings on the western slope of Colorado. We encourage everyone to come check it our and the bar in the back, with its eklectic feel. It may be one of the oldest restaurants here in Silverton, but the menu changes often with summer dinner specials changing weekly with a nice gourmet feel. Make sure to see what we have in the winter. Check next door for Ice Cream, expresso and now soaking in Silverton!

Cute place. Food was excellent. Beer was cold!! Homemade corn chowder w pork soup was good. Homemade bread was divine. Caesar dressing super yummy. Wings had right amount of kick and were not overdone. Owner very friendly.

This place isn't terrible. But it's certainly not that good. Weak atmosphere. Very quiet to the point of being boring. Food was not good. In fact, it was poor. They kinda try, but better places in town.

We drove up and got there before the train, so there wasn't a wait. We all had sandwiches and they were all really good. I have food allergies and have to make special orders. They didn't even blink, and it came out just the way I asked.

Several diners (including me) had a little trouble opening the front door due to the antique door latch, but glad we made the effort. Good basic food and fast, friendly (family?) service. We ordered burger, sandwiches, wrap, and cheesecake for dessert - all were delicious. Price was reasonable for quality of food, especially considering it's mostly a tourist town. We... More

We stopped in and randomly selected a restaurant in Silverton. We just needed a quick lunch. We had burgers soup and BLTs. Nothing fancy, but all tasted good. The place seemed like a place the locals frequented also. Our waiters were young and it felt like a family run place. We didn't take advantage of the fresh pies.

We enjoyed ice cream cones sitting on a bench outside the restaurant...nice variety of flavors and very pleasant staff. They had some other interesting ice cream options like milk shakes and sundaes...maybe next time!

I worked at the Pickle Barrel the summer of 1979 and hadn't been back. The restaurant looks mostly the same and the menu is fairly similar. The new owner bought it from the men who had owned it back then and he was interested in my stories and I was interested in his. It was a fun trip down memory... More

Pricey. I ordered a Kobe burger for $13 and pretty sure it was just a plain Ol cheeseburger nothing fancy or extra good. You can get fries for extra or bland coleslaw or a handful of chips with your sandwich. We also tried Thee Pits and it was better.

The food was really good at the Pickle Barrel and the service was too. We both had the Mahi Mahi, but mine was not totally cooked. I love Sushi, but I prefer my Mahi Mahi to be totally cooked. I think since my husband and I both had the same and his was thinner than mine, they regulated the timing... More
