The food here is consistently good and not your typical diner fare - although you can get that here too. They occasionally get something wrong but every time the manager has gone above and beyond to make it right. Very good breakfast dishes as well. My only real complaint is that when calling to order takeout you're put on hold... More

A group of friends went for early breakfast, and a good thing it was early as the place filled up fast. I had not had eggs in a while so I tried one of the omelets – really good, served hot and the texture was fluffy, very good. The menu variety is impressive, with an emphasis on organic, local and...

Generally, when there's a line out the door, chances are what's inside is worth waiting for. This is one of those places. We have had breakfast at several Silver Diners in Maryland and Virginia and have never been disappointed. Great pancakes and omelets. The food is very fresh. From eggs to vegetables to the meats. The price is fair and... More

Had breakfast there at the recommendation of a local. Loved the ambience, the counter service and the old-fashioned juke box playing oldies but goodies. The food was excellent. Tasty and well prepared at reasonable prices. Our server was friendly and welcoming. All in all, a good dining experience.

Silver diner is a chain restaurant and very good as a conventional diner. What makes it unique is the localy sourced ingredients and innovative menu items.

The service is always top-notch for the type of establishment it is. The food, however, belies the "diner" stereotype. It's locally sourced, and well-prepared-and-presented. The hot food arrives hot (of late, no mean feat in all too few restaurants) and the cold food arrives cold. Hooray! There's good variety and I love how so many of the dishes are described... More

We favored this particular restaurant because it has high quality food for very low prices. I'm extremely sensitive to the ingredients and how they are sourced. When I eat vegetables I can taste the freshness and I could see how they were recently harvested from local farms. I love selection of vegan dishes period children's menu is full of healthy... More

I had the most amazing burger last night! I was in the mood for a good, juicy burger and this one was a very happy and pleasant surprise! I was just going to order their regular burger with maybe bacon and cheddar however when I saw the Kickin' Short Rib burger, I knew it was the one to get. And... More

Silver Diner is a classic on diner food with a locally sourced and fresh! The burgers are delicious, sweet potato fries are soooo good! The wait is long on the weekends in the morning, so beware! But the food is worth it!

Bison huevos rancheros for a birthday celebration was the bomb. Cooked perfectly. Great food and fun. Complete with family friendly activities such as balloon maker. There is always something going on. Silver Diner is always growing and striving to do even better, so as I as get older and do the same I go visit for my birthday club bonus.... More
