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.Use our Silverton vacation builder to visit Gallon House Bridge on your trip to Silverton, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

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.
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.
Worst service I have ever received. We chose this place as it had a great outside seating area. We found an open table and sat down and after about 10 min the waitress finally came over without greeting or welcoming us told us that next time we need to go inside first and let them know that we are there. She then turned around and went inside, returned 5 minutes later to take our order but realized she never gave us our menus. The service continued to get worse from there and caused us to leave. I would never return to this place or recomend it to anyone.
Good food. Plenty of indoor/outdoor seating. Indoor has lots of TV's for game watching
