Cowboy Dinner Tree is definitely worth the drive into the Oregon Outback. While there is nothing nearby, it doesn't even matter, because there is nowhere else I would rather go.

We are so glad we made the drive from Bend to visit this unusual restaurant. Following the suggestion by friends who have eaten here, we ordered one steak and one chicken, and came home with enough leftovers for several good meals. The entire dinner was a delight, from the enthusiasm of the employees to the taste of the salad, biscuits,... More

This place is five miles from the town of Silver Lake which is very small. And Silver Lake is a long way from just about anywhere. Yet, it has supported this place for 23 years. They take only cash, you must have a reservation. The choices are steak or chicken. Better bring a cooler for your leftovers because you will... More

The Cowboy Dinner Tree is one place you have to visit. Food was a great and the rustic place is friendly and relaxed. Reservations required but its worth it. Order an extra serving of rolls when you make reservations to take with you. You will have great left overs. The steaks are huge and outstanding or choose a whole roasted... More

When some friends asked if my wife and I would like to go to dinner in silver lake, I thought they were crazy,but accepted! The cowboy dinner tree proved to be well worth the drive, the food and service was fantastic!! The setting was remarkable and for $28 a person, we had no regrets!! Btw we drove 350 miles round...

I ate at the restaurant and also rented one of their log cabins while on a bicycle tour of southern Oregon. The restaurant is literally in the boondocks, five miles south of the small town of Silver Lake, OR, but they fed 135 people in ten seatings the Thursday I was there. I phoned for a reservation (required) from Silver... More

This place is still great. Each meal comes with either a full rotisserie cooked chicken or massively huge steak. Both are very tasty. All meals were served with the best rolls I have ever eaten, tasty bean soup, and incredible salad. Try the salad with a mixture of the ranch and honey mustard dressing they provide. You can wash it... More

My father in-law has been wanting to get the 32oz steaks for a while. He finally made us a reservation for this past weekend and it was so much fun. Although it was a ways out from Bend, the experience and memory will last a life time. The decor and the staff was fantastic. First course, salad- basic salad but... More

There is no possible way to go home hungry from this place. The steaks are the size of a small roast and cooked perfectly.

The Cowboy Dinner Tree is an unique place. Four of us dined there last Sunday. Our food was much more than plentiful, and cooked to perfection. The service was flawless. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
