Description: 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.

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. Not much was happening there at the... More

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

Very poor service. One of our orders had a minor special request which they got wrong (please, no onions). Could not get our waitress' attention to ask for a refill of coffee and soda (she never stopped by during our meal and getting her attention was futile).

We live in Durango and get up to Silverton often...the Pickle Barrel used to be pretty reliable in both service and food, but yesterday it was bad, really bad. The waitress took 40 minutes to take our order, didn't deliver the chili we ordered, then gave us a bill...that included the chili. The chicken sandwich was dry and grisley. Go... More

After the Durango/Silverton Train ride, we had lunch at this great restaurant. Service was exceptional and fast, the meal was excellent. My wife had the Portobello Mushroom Melt and I had the Ham & Swiss Croissant, both along with a cup of their special soup of the day. We topped it off with whiskey bread pudding. Since the majority of... More

Good food at reasonable prices. The young waiter had a bit of trouble with understanding the order, but it all came out right in the end.
