“The Nickel”, as the locals call it, is owned by Glen Damewood who performed (and still performs) there frequently with his bluegrass band. His love of fine food and creative cooking found a natural outlet here, and he took possession 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. With hand-crafted meats, home-grown veggies and freshly baked breads…you won’t find a better option.
In February of 1998, the Wooden Nickel expanded and opened a second restaurant in the heart of Sublimity, Oregon. One side of the facility offers family dining in a comfortable atmosphere. The other side is a full service bar. The characteristics of the Silverton Nickel have carried over into the ambiance of the Sublimity Nickel. They both have the same menu and relaxed hometown atmosphere that guests have grown to love.
If some time has passed since your last visit, or you’ve never been in, you’re invited to come in and have a great meal and make a few new friends. From smoking, curing & barbecuing their own meats to baking their own fresh breads, buns and rolls, Wooden Nickel Pub takes great pride in offering the best food around. The menu offers a little something for everyone, from the famous Rectangle Hamburgers, St. Louis Style Ribs, Shrimp Yakisoba with Vegetables, Steaks and Jambalaya, to the hand-dipped chicken tenders and juicy Southern Fried Chicken.
If you’re needing a meal in a hurry, the Nickel makes all of its orders “to go”, but if you have time, please come by and sit a spell. They welcome newcomers with great enthusiasm and they appreciate those who have been with them from day one.
