Incredible prime rib!!

We were with a group of 12 and we decided to try the Wooden Nickel as recommended by one of our group. We called ahead for a reservation (thank goodness) and arrived at 5:15 to find the place extremely busy - not because of it's location (you'll need to use a navigation aid if you've never been... read more

The first breakfast we had was great and we love a good bloody mary. First time- great! Second week the bloody mary we got was brown, not red, and not drinkable. When we very politely and quietly told the waitress they were not drinkable, she was very rude and snatched the bloody mary, spilling them all over the table. No... More

We decided to order out. Ribs- excellent. Pulled pork - excellent. Coleslaw - really good. The only downside was there some confusion on what was quoted on the phone & what the final payment was to be, after some discussion it was worked out.

Went here on a friend's recommendation. I ordered the beef brisket po' boy sandwich and it was great! Tender meat with melted cheese and some jalapeño for a little kick (not overly spicy though). The service could use an improvement. Was slow to take order and didn't stop by to ask for refill until we were ready for the check.... More

I have lived within 15 miles of this place pretty much my whole life and just went for the first time a couple weeks. I had heard people talk about it and never really listened. Anyway, I am now disappointed that I didn't go sooner. We had excellent service and the best food I have had in the area in... More

Lots of choice from the menu! Quality of food is good and ambiance indeed looks like a home environment. Excellent quality/price relation! Good service.

Fun place! Down home environment, good food, good service. Enjoyed my visit and meal. Waitress was fun, and a great sense of humor. Price was very good for the meal. Glad I attend this restaurant.

My husband and I have been going there for over 10 years, the last 3 times the cook couldn't our breakfast orders right, appears he doesn't know how to make eggs benedict. Then this last Friday night it wasn't busy but after waiting over 20 mins to get our orders taken we just walked out and went to The Home... More

We ate there with a couple who lives in Silverton on a Sunday night. We were there early (before 5 pm) for dinner, but it seemed very empty for a weekend. He said "this place used to be packed before they raised the prices." They used to have great deals like 10 cent wings that would draw crowds. The prices... More

After not getting service at the home place our family moved to this location and the food was delicious and the waitress was excellent. The only problem was the jukebox didn't work properly and by the time it played our songs we were leaving. Should have given us a refund for the juke box
