Went with our adult kids for my husband's birthday. Asked, through Open Table, if the chef could make a cake which he did and it was wonderful. Thank you Jeff and Naomi.

It’s always worth the hour drive from Portland to this Silverton restaurant. The menu features fresh Willamette Valley produce. Each dish is creative and very tasty. Service is friendly. Cozy atmosphere. There were many appetizer options including two soups. I chose the squash purée slightly spiced with curry. The entree of veal was tasty but not memorable. Desserts are always an impressive ending to a fine dining experience, in this instance a layered pineapple napoleon was as appealing as it’s artistic appearance.

We were camping at the Detroit Lakes State Park and had a wonderful conversation with a local Salem couple, (Hi Kelly & Stacey!) We love to ask locals where their favorite spots are! The town of Silverton and the Silver Grille were absolutely golden ( or Silver!) treasures! Right from the Staff to the Food and Ambiance & Wine ! This place is a true gem! We highly recommend! 7 out of 5 Stars!
We live for places like this that support local and cook from scratch ! Rare finds! Eat here! You won’t regret it!
We enjoyed: a pork shoulder steak
Oxtail-wild mushroom cannelloni
Creme brûlée, apple strudel
Local Cabernet Sauvignon wine

The owner / chef makes everything in-house using locally sourced ingredients when possible. My wife thought her pork entrée was perhaps the best she has every had. This is a great spot to take out-of-town visitors.... an easy drive through the countryside.

Took a couple of friends to Silver Grille recently, The restaurant, one of my favorites, fit the bill except for one thing: my main course, halibut cheeks in a tasty sauce, was barely warm. l like my cooked food hot. On the other hand, both my gazpacho and crème brûlée were some of the best I've had. Delicious!
I'd have sent the fish back, but it took too long to be served (that could be why it wasn't hot; probably sat a while after being plated,) but I was hungry and ate it despite its unappealing temperature.
I'll return to Silver Grille, but I'll discuss my preferences in detail with my server and won't hesitate, if something doesn't meet my expectations, to send it back.

I ordered the tri-tip and my wife the salmon. The Tri-tip was excellent flavor and cooked to my request. My only criticism was the serrated butter knife wasn't up to the task as my wife finished before me (that was a first). Food was excellent and we both finished our plates, so proportion were perfect.
It was cozy place just off the main "drag". We went there for our 29th anniversary, after viewing a movie at the local theatre.

My second visit to this fine restaurant. A nice find in such a small town. Jeff and his crew attend to the small details and to the quality of each part of the menu. Superb food. Excellent and personal service. We had to move tables as the sun was right in our eyes and at the second table an air conditioning vent was right at my feet. Not too comfortable.

The Naughty Librarian salad was exceptionally good. I usually order dressing on the side but didn’t this time, and it was perfect. My vegetarian ravioli was in a white sauce which I usually avoid, but it was light and tasty. It was a great dinner!
