Let me say first that I am a big fan of traditional diners. That's my comfort food, that's my comfort place. I see family, friends, clients at diners everywhere. It's always a good fallback position when I am not sure where to take an acquaintance to eat. Yesterday, customers took ME out to dinner at the Silver Diner in Arlington,... More

This diner is right off the Metro and open late (perfect!) The menu is really varied, and the food was excellent. Our group had black bean quesadilla (great - just a little spicy, but a tasty mix inside), a huge breakfast (I'll try this next time - my sample was awesome!) and chicken noodle soup which came out, frankly, cold....

Service was great, very friendly, helpful and efficient. The diner advertises more than what you would expect from a typical diner - a lot of the food on the menu is advertised as fresh and organic. Unfortunately, this isn't constant throughout each meal and considering the price of the menu; it really should be. The hollandaise sauce for the eggs... More

If you want great "comfort food" in Arlington, this is the place. The menu has a wide variety of diner-type food options that will satisfy most any appetite. The service and atmosphere are great and the food quality is excellent. And where else can you find a restaurant these days that has a juke box selector at each table where... More

Fun atmosphere with small juke boxes on the tables that will play throughout the restaurant. Service was friendly and quick. Food was good.

Ok normally I would go to Silver Diner for breakfast fare or maybe a burger, but looking at their menu, I wanted something on the lite side and their fish tacos were under 600 calories. The waiter also recommended them over two other selections I was considering. I have to say he was correct. I thought the fish tacos (flounder)... More

Yes, it's just a "diner," but the selection of food is amazing and extremely reasonably priced. The menu indicates which entrees are under 600 calories or vegan, but has options for every taste. I had the spinach feta lamb burger, which was great! Plus, they have both beer and wine as well as great milkshakes. You really can't go wrong... More

This isn't fancy at all, but this diner does the basics very well and then some. It isn't a small diner, so you do get some welcomed elbow room and the basic breakfast items were all done very well. It is very comfortable, clean and the waitstaff and management were very friendly.
