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.

This is our annual valentine’s dinner and this year was the best by far. Each table got a rose and two truffles after the meal was finished. Last year we had crappy service for the first time, but this year, they more than made up for it on every level, and they gave us not one but two free desserts for last year’s experience. So happy we can continue on our valentine’s tradition here year after year.

This is my favorite spot in Louisville. Always great food. Warm, fun, and staff/service with the greatest sense of hospitality and pride in their work. Love the SD.

Glad we used Open Table the restaurant filled up quickly. The barbecue grilled chicken thighs were amazing. Boneless. Moist. Spicy. And an over abundance of them. I took half home for lunch. The restaurant is very loud, dark (I used the table candle to read the menu) and the tables for two are cozy small.
The food is delicious.

Old fire station turned restaurant and bar. Great cocktails and veg-friendly food options. Loved the fried pickles. Service with a smile!

Wonderful food (as always) and friendly staff. Love this place. Music was a tad loud for 5 pm indoor dining but the music selections were great but hard to hear if you have a party of 5+.

We always enjoy being there, however last couple of times the brisket was already gone...it seems if it's a dinner item it should be better available. That is indeed frustrating.

Silver Dollar is an excellent spot for great brunch and strong tasty Bourbon cocktails. I used priority seating for brunch on New Years Eve and although ae were late (sorry Silver Dollar), we were still seated very quickly (thanks!) The food is soooo tasty and comforting (fried green tomatoes)

Five of us went there on a Sunday morning for brunch. Their reservation system is priority seating but since we arrived when they opened at 10 am it was no problem getting a table, and they already had one set up for us. Had a biscuit basket with jam while we enjoyed our coffee, then chilaquiles, huervos rancheros, and smoked chicken enfrioldes. The food was delicious! We all loved our meals and enjoyed the variety of sauces they provide at the table that vary in spice level. Loved the old country music playing and the service was outstanding. First time having brunch here, and we will all definitely be back.
