Finished a vigorous hike at nearby Silver Falls State Park. Drive 15 miles to Silverton for a late lunch or early dinner. Doors opened and we were greeted right away by hostess. Service attended our table immediately for water offer of beverages, and dinner specials were also printed and discussed.
First course charcuterie was one of the best I’ve ever had. Meats cheeses and pickled veggies were delicious and artfully presented. I enjoyed the parsnip soup, and my partner had the grilled/charred Caesar salad. She did share a few delicious bites of the salad with me. Then onto main course: she had melt in your mouth lamb, and I tried the “cuts the butter” tri-tip. Both tender and flavorful. We paired our entrees with glasses of local Pudding River Pinot: delicious modest mouthful of flavors (not overly robust).
We finished this feast with creme brûlée and apple strudel. The strudel used fillo dough which made for very enjoyable flaky texture, and minimized the sugary sweet compote so you enjoyed the toned down natural sweetness of the apples.
How much did we enjoy our meals and the ambiance? I posted the name of this gem on my FB page so friends can find it as well.

Great meal as always, great service, a bit noisy with a party of four near us guffawing too loudly. Brought along a couple who moved to Oregon recently and they really enjoyed the Silver Grille.

We enjoyed eating at Silver Grille for my wife's birthday. I has an intimate setting with tables reasonably far apart to provide separation of parties. The food was outstanding. The 4 of us had the New York steak, lamb and chicken and all were sharing bites. The apple strudel was so delicious that my daughter wants the recipe. The fancy pants pineapple, cream, ??? layered desert was fantastic -- just order it if you want a lighter style dish. My take is that it is a Portland quality restaurant at a slightly lower price. The fact that you get a full meal and are not ordering items ala carte is a plus. We will return to try other dishes. One last thing...I like that they have a limited menu. It gives me confidence that the ingredients are fresh and they are practiced at serving the dishes. I sometimes wonder what I'm getting at large restaurants that have countless options. Don't worry, there is something for everyone.

We really liked our visit to Silver Grille. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. The only thing I would suggest is they serve the vinaigrette on the side of the "naughty librarian" salad. It was full of delicious flavors: pears, blue cheese, and candied pecans I believe. None of which I could taste. It was completely taken over with vinegar. I couldn't finish it because my mouth burned. I was disappointed because I love the contrasting flavors of this type of salad. But I can't stress enough how wonderful everything else was. Just one minor suggestion. :)

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.
