So I've noticed that there hasn't been a review for The Silver Dollar in a long time. Well, I'm here to say that I understand all your concerns but there is no more need! I've been going every single weekend since New Years! I absolutely love it! The staff is friendly and fun and they accept everyone! There are various bars that play various music so there's something for everyone! The place has be reinnovated and many of the complaints I see here have been addressed. Like I said, I go everyyyy weekend and I LOVE it! :D

I heard that this used to be a great place years ago so I thought I'd check it out for the first time. What a disappointment. The name of the bar is misleading. It is NOT a country bar anymore. It plays only spanish latin music and 99% of its clients are Mexican. Not a cowboy bar at all. No ventilation and the smoke is heavy. I couldn't stand it more than 20 minutes.

This is a very casual place with lots of great music, great drag shows and good people! I love the bartenders there, especially the female, she makes the best Bloody Mary's! If you are not into the fussy crowds, cover charge, over priced drinks, and limited parking, then this is the place to go! Bring your friends and bring cash (thats all they take) cause it's certainly a place to come by and visit and even perhaps make it your regular stop!

""The first impression is always a lasting impression"". It's obvious management never heard of this phrase. The first person I saw was the door guy, who was was rude and obnoxious. When I entered the club it seemed to be alittle ""rundown"". It definately needs to be fixed up. The restrooms are terrible. Outhouses smell better and look a lot better at that. The floors in the restroom were wet and had at least 2 inches of water on the floor. I would think with the amount of patrons that frequent the Silver Dollar, it would make enough money for renovations. Overall, the music was ok and the bartenders were courteous (at least to males).

We were grossly disappointed with this bar. We went on the notion they were a C&W bar, but they played mostly mexican music and didn't stray to much of anything else. The main thing C&W about it was some of the ""cowboys"" in there.The bartenders were excellent. There is never a cover, and they have good drink specials. They do not accept credit cards, as we found out the hard way, and the coat check situation is a joke. The music was RIDICULOUSLY loud...it didn't make any sense for it to be blaring at that volume. It gets so dangerously crowded around midnight that even the fire marshall wouldn't be able to move in there. The dancefloor was small, and the ""light show"" consisted of blinking multicolored icicle christmas lights and a few single colored strands of lights that were tacked to the wall. They blinked according to a flasher bulb in the lights, and not to any particular beat. They really need to invest some money into that bar for improvements (such as a floor other than asphalt) and a decent light show, as well as a better variety of music and for someone to monitor the overcrowding.
