The Pickle Barrel at Silverton

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 6, 2010 12:13 pm

Your hosts, Paul and Sharon Zimmerman of Silverton, bring you a memorable dining experience in one of our town’s most historic locations. Built in 1880 by Sherwin and Houghton as a general mercantile store, this building was the six-year-old mining town’s first masonry commercial structure. The Giacomelli family turned it into the Iron Mountain Saloon in the 1890s, and then into an ice cream parlor with adjacent liquor store after 1917. The family sold the building in 1970. In June 1971, the building, which had been vacant for 19 years, opened as the Pickle Barrel Restaurant, as it remains today.

The Pickle Barrel offers:

· A family restaurant atmosphere
· A perfect place for groups and special
· A unique, private back bar
· A fireplace and wood-burning stove for chilly
mountain days
· Friendly, fast service
· A variety of menu offerings, including a
children’s menu
· A great wine selection and a full bar.

We are located just one block up and one block to the right after getting off the train. Look for the historic stone building at the corner of Greene and 13th Street. We also offer accommodations in our sister establishment, Smedley’s Suites. To learn more, click here!
