Wooden Nickel

Location & Contact:

The Wooden Nickel, located at 1610 Pine Street, Silverton, Oregon, has been a popular gathering place in Silverton for over 60 years. In the 1950s and 1960s it was known as Ed & Johnnys. Many current customers can remember their fathers and grandfathers playing cribbage around the horse-shoe shaped bar. During the 1970s and 1980s some remodeling occurred adding room for a dance floor. Live music, shuffleboard and pinball were the craze and The Nickel, as locals called it, was jam-packed on the weekends. In the mid 1980s the current owner, Glen Damewood, performed there frequently with his bluegrass band. His love of fine food and creative cooking found a natural outlet here and he soon took posession of the establishment and things have never been the same! The Nickel is still the place to go for delicious food at an affordable price, while having a great time of course! In February of 1998, the Wooden Nickel expanded and opened a second restaurant in the heart of Sublimity, Oregon, located at 108 N Center St. One side of the facility offers family dining in a comfortable atmosphere. The other side is a full service bar complete with Oregon Lottery games. The characteristics of the Silverton Nickel have carried over into the ambiance of the Sublimity Nickel. They both have the same menu and relaxed home town atmosphere that you've all grown to love.
