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.

Good place to eat while in Silverton!

We felt welcome as soon as we walked in the door. Everyone was so nice and wanted to make sure we were happy. The food was very good and thankfully we were there off season so there weren't many people there. I would surely go back there on our next visit!

We always visit The Pickle Barrel when we are vacationing nearby. Tonight we had the meatloaf and mashed potatoes-what a treat. Love the homemade desserts too!

With two fireplaces going,you walk into the restaurant and you feel the warmth first, followed by cooking food. It's a charming place. The people are friendly and efficient. I ordered the prime rib and cheesy sandwich without the bun. It was tasty; so thinly sliced that it was more like roast beef then any prime rib I've had. That said,... More

I have been coming to the Pickle Barrel when in Silverton, for thirty plus years. I like the place. It's homey, feels local, has good food and deserts, and the people who have been our servers have always been very nice. Silverton is a small mountain town and given the challenging mountain passes that food service trucks have to negotiate... More

The Pickle Barrel is my go-to restaurant in Silverton after a hike. Whether I call ahead for take-out or enjoy the rustic restaurant I know I can count on a well deserved meal. Granted I tend to stick to the same menu item....the Steak and Cheese sub (or as I call it, the Philly) followed by a slice of Chocolate... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our fruit pie with vanilla ice cream. The pie had 5 different fruits and berries. Service was friendly and it did not seem like a tourist trap.

My husband and I had lunch here on our Durango/Silverton train trip. We both had ham and cheese sandwiches on croissants. The ham was not lunch meat but more of a sliced ham roast, very tasty. The atmosphere is okay. The service was efficient and 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.
