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. Check next door for Ice Cream, expresso and now soaking in Silverton!

My family of 5 ate here on NYE. Our waiter was super friendly and very attentive. I got the Mediterranean pasta and my husband got a rib eye. We both thought our meal was delicious and the portions were large, but we sprung for dessert too. I got the fruit of the forest pie...it was amazing!

“Nice lunch, great staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

A nice place to stop for lunch and a cold beer. A limited menu, but what they serve is good food a reasonable price for it's location. The bar stools in back are a bit hard, but take the time to visit with the employee's or locals who frequent the back bar area. Nice place to escape (hide) while the women are shopping. They have a decent selection of "local" beers.

“Great Lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

After riding the narrow gauge railroad from Durango all morning, we were hungry! But we also wanted a restaurant that was a little bit away from the train station and the rest of the hungry crowd! The Pickle Barrel did not disappoint. The homemade split pea soup was hot and delicious and so was the corned beef sandwich!The service was good, nice waitress, and we enjoyed a quiet, relaxing lunch!

“Outstanding Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Hey, this is one of many good choices in Silverton so I'm not sure you can go wrong anywhere. But the atmosphere here was quiet and the food homemade. We had an excellent soup and bread--perfect fries and a burger with a grilled portabella mushroom. Other burgers available, salads, desserts plus some good vegetarian choices. In particular our server, Gus, was just wonderful. A young man who really knows how to wait on tables and engage the client. He must have sincerely thanked us for coming in 5-10 times. Super nice and left us with a very favorable opinion. Alcohol available, too.

I have eaten here several times through the years and the food has always been good. We usually have sandwiches and all have been good. Staff is always friendly.
