Experience the Central Oregon Outback

Restaurant, Cabins & Gift Shop

Ranch-Style Cooking and a Friendly Atmosphere

Welcome to Cowboy Dinner Tree. We are pleased to offer a Restaurant, Cabins, and Gift Shop on our homestead in Central Oregon’s Outback. We’re located in Silver Lake, Oregon — about a 90-minute drive from Bend.

Years and years ago there was an old shack under a Juniper tree, which is now the home to Cowboy Dinner Tree. Back then, ranchers from Paisley, Summer Lake, and Silver Lake pushed their cattle through Sycan Trail en route to the lush meadows of the Sycan Marsh. By the time the Cowboys had moved the cattle from the Silver Lake bed to the Dinner Tree, it was considered the halfway point, and they were hungry! There, the chuck wagon was waiting to serve up some buckaroo beans and biscuits.

Today after all these years, the Cowboy Dinner Tree still serves up the beans and bread, along with a slab of beef that most cowboys would only dream of on the trail!

Howdy folks!

Reservations Are Required

We look forward to seeing you, but we do require reservations. Please call to book a table in advance to assure we have enough grub for just a couple of folks or all the ranch hands! (We book months in advance).
