BarFly's Review of Silver Dollar Pizza
It's not really a sports bar despite the countless TVs set to ESPN - after-work sorts seemed genuinely disturbed at anyone watching the game action - and, though their pizza perfects a post-seventh-grade-soccer-championship classicism, the bartenders do everything but refuse to take food orders. The Silver Dollar obstinately remains a neighborhood bar in search of a neighborhood.
Drunken louts from god-knows rule the sizable pool room and arcade, older area barflies know everybody's names, post-grad long-hairs tie their dogs to the benches outside and trade microbrews, hipsters sprawl across front couches to sneak wi-fi from the neighboring ice cream parlor.
On an avenue so crowded with niche destinations, The Silver Dollar helplessly became a catch-all retreat for all drinking needs otherwise unmet by surrounding bars - admirable, entirely, but ... they'd be such a GOOD pizzeria/sports bar.

I'm torn between choosing pretty freaking nice and not .
for me , it had beer, small selection of micro /good stuff, but what they have is on my winning list . if i want to shoot pool i can shoot pool, if i want to smoke outside with my beer , i can smoke outside with my beer. they got ping pong when i really wanna let loose and act like a geek . have only had their silver dollar burger and fries, for under 7 bucks it awesome, wasn't expecting what i got . it is oddly placed, but if you're not an unhealthy person in general you should have no problem hitting up silver dollar then walking around town for other spots. I go here when im in the area, if i lived closer it be my 3- 4x a week hang out. you should check this place out.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE their pizza... I have NO idea who these other peeps are or what they ordered? or where they've been before... for that matter... Silver Dollar cooks every pizza to order... INCLUDING single slices... you can't beat that. After the remodel, the old tv's went to the wayside and everything looks better than the "olden days" so-to-speak. Two thumbs from me... I live in the hood. Steve is rad if he's working.
Then Silver Dollar will fulfil your needs. If you want a better sports bar, walk a little further to Uptown Silver Dollar as SD has the worst tv's I've ever seen a "sports bar" have. You want beer? Go to Blue Moon across the street. You want GOOD pizza, I recommend you avoid this place. In other words, you really shouldn't have any high expectations other than you can eat Izzy's style pizza, drink moderately priced beer and watch sports on 10 year old tvs.

Anyone who can eat this pizza can eat anything . Hands down the worst pizza I have ever eaten .Bartenders are friendly but can be slow to serve .
this place sucks. beer fart infested couches are a neat idea, and being able to drinky drink outside with your dog is the ticket
Literally the worst service I've had an any bar in Portland... And I've been to Dante's. Avoid it like herpes. If I wanted to be ignored by fat, uneducated women who put mascara on with a paint brush, I'd go to Gresham. It's a nice place to piss if you're homeless, but that's about it.
This place sucks! The service sucks...the bartenders are rude unless you are old and drunk apparently. Their pizza tastes like mold. The bartenders can't even make drinks right.
I was at this place last weekend and felt like I smoked 4 packs after walking out of the place. Funny thing is I don't smoke..... Get some ventilation going Silver Dollar.......
This place used to be really cool a couple of years ago, when JC was running the place. The new manager came in, raised prices, made the pizza taste like crap, remodeled the place to make it look like a 12 year old boys bedroom and the crowd left. Now, its a pretty depressing place.
