Gallon House Bridge, Silverton

(45+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Best beer selection in town, and great food & service to boot.
  • A great place for beers in Silverton. They carry mostly Oregon brewed selections here and love that. I wouldn't recommend the food. Mediocre. At fare. It's not horrible. K?
  • We love this place. No matter what we order, it tastes great. Revolving tap with 30 varieties.
  • Great beer selection but weird vibe from staff and customers. Kind of like a underachieving frat house.
  • This is a lovely place to sit on the patio with a beverage on a lazy afternoon. The food is good, I had a chicken sandwich with bacon and cheese with a side of crispy fries. They even had gluten free bread. Service was quick even when they were busy.
