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.

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.

On our first but not last visit to the Silver Dollar, we were please with food and service. It was a busy Saturday night but we were able to get a table. The servers kept things moving with drinks arriving shortly after we ordered followed by crispy, yummy fried chicken livers. That appetizer portion would be better for a table of 4, but the 2 of us managed to finish them off. Then our main courses arrived. The burger was good and the brisket was amazing. I can't imagine that our order was a normal amount - it looked like the Fred Flintstone serving. Delicious and smoky with or without the sauces.

I loved the priority seating through the Open Table website. I was pleasantly surprised at the fried catfish in the menu. It was the best fried catfish I ever had. Seating was fast and the servers are friendly and attentive. I would come back to The Silver Dollar again.

Great food, nicest staff ever. I’d never had chicken and waffles before, and server explained the appeal. Really enjoyed this dish, especially when you use syrup and the hot sauce. Fantastic cocktail, with Bourbon, honey, lemon, really hit the spot. Thanks, team, for a great time.

Stopped in on a friend's recommendation. The chipotle eggs were worth the trip! Seriously, one of the best things I tasted in Louisville. The brisket was also delicious. Decent beer selection. Excellent Bourbon and Rye selection, of course. Bar staff was a little inattentive, but solid experience overall.

I have visited the Silver Dollar on many occasions, and have never been disappointed. How can you go wrong, it’s in an old firehouse.
