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.

You'll always find a Warm Welcome at the Pickle Barrel

Our family has patronized the Pickle Barrel for decades. Whether the munchies hit you at a normal dinner hour or in between, you can be pretty sure that the Pickle Barrel will accommodate you. On our last visit we stopped in the middle of the afternoon after a gruelling drive to Animas Forks... read more

We were passing thru town and wanted to stop for lunch. We had no idea where to go and dropped in here. We were delighted! The decor was a step back in time. Service was efficient and so pleasant. We received our drinks right away, the food came soon after and was DELICIOUS. Do make this your next stop!!

Very neat historic building. One of the oldest stone buildings in western Colorado. The steaks were pretty good and affordable.

We stopped in for lunch before skiing at Kendall mountain today. This was our 2nd visit to the Pickle Barrel. We were greeted with a friendly smile. Our order was taken promptly and the fire was the perfect touch to the cozy restaraunt. The owners came out and visited. Such personable people. We loved hearing stories about the town and... More

We were pretty disappointed. This is one of the few places open during the winter, so we thought we'd try them all. This was clearly the bottom rung. Friendly staff and good service, but food was pretty expensive and quality was poor...my filet mignon had obviously spent a long time in the deep freeze. There are better options.

Nice spot for lunch in Leadville. A lot of us getting off the bus before traveling on the Durango train. Therefore, if you want nice service you need to walk over there ASAP.

We stopped for lunch, and while waiting for service noticed the dirty table, menus, and surrounding area. Used the bathroom and found no soap, no paper toweling, and extremely dirty floor. Service was slow and manager was rude.

We had dinner at the Pickle Barrel during our recent stay in Silverton, Colorado, The waitress was very friendly and prompt. She said the restaurant was known for its slow-roasted prime rib so I ordered the large cut. It arrived and was "buttery" as described and pretty good as tenderness and flavor goes. I did not, however, like the particular... More
