Southern
The Silver Dollar is a re-imagining of the honky tonks of Bakersfield, CA, circa 1950s, when Southerners transplanted by the Dust Bowl to Southern California created one of the great American musical styles. This music, much of it on original vinyl, spins around the clock at the Silver Dollar, and is served along side craft cocktails and Chef Tyler Powell's made from scratch, Southern-meets-Southern-California cuisine 7 nights a week and for the city's most exciting brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. The restored 1890s firehouse that is home to the Silver Dollar features a 70 seat covered patio.



* This restaurant uses a Priority Seating style of reservation. Priority Seating means that your party will go to the top of any wait list when you arrive at the restaurant, and you will be seated at the first available table that will accommodate your party when your full party is present. To make a traditional reservation for a party 8 +, please call us directly.

    Make it a point to stop here for dinner every time I’m in town and I am never disappointed in the food, the bourbon, or the service.

    Food and service was good, a little loud every time I've been! Stays pretty crowded so I guess that is a good sign. I preferred lunnch over breakfast option.

    I had the cornish hen and it was quite good along with a few beers. Our party had a very good time there, I would definitely recomend the Silver Dollar for a fun evening with friends.

    Another solid meal at Silver Dollar! Texas chili with a side of collard greens was great. My husband had the pork chops and really enjoyed them.

    I love Silver Dollar, but I've had bad luck with reservations before and this time was no different. We were seated late, which was a little tough with two kids. The music is also way too loud. I know it's part of the schtick, but I sort of think no one actually likes it that loud.

    The whiskey selection is outstanding. If you just want to try a new drink, I highly recommend this place. The food was not as good. I had bbq chicken thighs and they were spicy but not very flavorful. I was expecting them on the bone - they weren’t which was ok. But they were basically just cut up chicken pieces with a side salad. My gf had the chicken and waffles which were much better. The service was just ok - we ended up comped for the entree because it took so long. I will say that the pickle appetizer we had was really good. Overall, I’d recommend this place as a bar with appetizers rather than a full meal.

    Our server clearly hates his job. I am sure that played into how the evening went. The bourbon selection was great and prices were reasonable. Not everyone’s food came out at the same time and some was warmer than others. I had a couple people recommend this place to me so I am sure our experience was a one off but our experience was not good. I am giving 3 instead of 1 or 2 just because I trust the recommendations I got and trying to be nice about it.

    Food was really good. A bit loud for my taste and server disappeared towards the end for a long while. Would've been no big deal but we had been done and was needing boxes and our check to get to church. Overall, worth a try for anyone who's never been. Our second time there.
