Gallon House Bridge is a wooden covered bridge spanning Abiqua Creek in rural Marion County, Oregon, United States, built in 1916. The 84ft long bridge derived its name during prohibition when it was a meeting place for bootleggers and moonshiners. The bridge was swept off its footings in the December 1964 flood, but was restored immediately after. Gallon House Bridge is about 2mi north-northwest of the city of Silverton west of Oregon Route 214 on Gallon House Road.

  • Great burgers. Amazing sweet potato fries. I hear the Mac & Cheese is good too. Good bar. Big flat screen TVs throughout. Laid back fun atmosphere.
  • Our second time here, always a great selection of beers and good food. Lots of UP As and ciders this go around with 26 total taps.
  • AVOID. Service was poor, staff seemed very unorganized and unprepared. Food was below mediocre. No effort, inspiration or flavor. Ahi tuna salad was reheated tuna steak hastily tossed on a bed of greens and unripe avocado and tomato with no dressing. "Potato bites" were reheated sysco bagged junk. I regret choosing to spend $30 here.
  • Amazing selection of craft beer & cider, great food, a sun-soaked dining patio and really nice, personal service. A perfect place to meet friends for dinner or a happy hour beverage.
  • Good food. Plenty of indoor/outdoor seating. Indoor has lots of TV's for game watching
