Was a pleasant experience. A very busy place. We sat down on the patio and watched the train come in. The service was decent but quite slow. Food was good, Drinks were good. Price was so so. But it's all about the location!

The best burgers in town. Located right next to the train station it has a special ambiance for travelers or locals like myself. If you like salmon you'll like theirs. My husband orders it every time we dine there. He says it's the best in...More

Went late on a Monday night and it was packed...they don't do reservations, just keep "a list." Called to get on the list. When we got there just a short wait after the very harried hostess disappeared somewhere. Excellent Victorian furnishings. Had the lobster mac...More

This was clearly a place that was popular, as there was a wait. I think they had been overwhelmed with a big crowd because the service was slow. They were friendly but not that attentive, and the food was good, but not great. I'd try...More

We thought this would be a good place for dinner after a train ride from Silverton. It was next to the train station which was good but that is where the good stopped. The waiter tried hard, but it was tough to overcome the lackluster...More

As others have mentioned, the Palace is convenient, sited right next to the train station. We sat on the patio, which is pleasant and quiet--at least when a train isn't coming by. We had lunch there. I had a chicken salad sandwich and a cup...More

The Palace Restaurant features classic American cuisine. Steaks, seafood, pasta, great sauces, homemade breads and desserts. You can elect to dine in our family-friendly Victorian tavern and order from our moderately priced tavern menu or sit in our elegant dining room and order from our fine dining menu. On our summertime patio, both menus are available. Our restaurant is located in a circa-1880 building and is styled with beautiful Victorian furnishings, such as dark woods and Tiffany-style lamps. Our dining room fire place makes for a romantic evening out in the winter and our tavern and patio are "local favorites." From casual to elegant, we provide a very special dining room experience, with great, classic food and a friendly staff. Please join us!
