Not much change since 1979

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... read more

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!

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

The Pickle Barrel has been around for a long time and have always had consistently good food and service. It has great atmosphere and is a great place to stop in and have a good lunch with friends.

Service was very good here, although the tables are a little too close together for our liking. A bit disconcerting to see such young (13-16 yr. old?) waiters, but they did a good job. The salads we ordered for lunch were terrific, fresh and tasty. Try the Mexican Logger lager beer. We enjoyed our lunch. They've been around since 1971,... More

We were in town unrelated to the train, so it was pretty quiet by the time we stopped in for dinner. The young man who seated and served us was very polite. Our food arrived promptly. Both entrees were very good and large portions, so a very good value. I thought that overall the price was reasonable, especially in a... More

Nice quiet restaurant on the main drag. The wait staff were very attentive and fast. I had the pork chop and my wife has the Portobello mushroom burger and both were good.

6 of us went back to the Pickle Barrel for dinner on June 11th. We had eaten there the night before and had a mixed, though fun, experience. Our last time there was 11 years ago. Remember, you don't go to Silverton for fine dining - it's the whole experience you're looking for, so expectations should not be too high.... More
