While in Rockville, MD, I decided to walk to a grocery store and passed Silver Diner. I stopped in and had an incredible meal - Baja Fish tacos (grilled flounder) and citrus salad. Great meal and service.

Visited on a Friday night so waited about 10 minutes for a table. This place was busy continuously and the line proceeded out the door as we ate our meal, which is never a bad sign. This is a classically decorated diner with silver and neon styling and jukeboxes at each table. Fabulous atmosphere. The food was served promptly and... More

The silver dinner is the only place that I will eat French toast and on my last visit it was exactly the way I like it - dry and well done with fresh strawberries . Our waiter was friendly and attentive . We were there on a Sunday before 10:00 am and there was no wait.

Big selection of foods, burgers to salads. Can be very noisy and long lines. On main drag near lots of shops. Service is so so. Always giving away free food because of mistakes made. Better for breakfast or lunch

This is not your father's diner serving low-end, basic renditions of comfort food. To the contrary, it features classic American dishes with a "twist" reminiscent of San Francisco's Fog City Diner. The "twist" being heart-healthy options utilizing fresh and locally sourced ingredients from more than 15 local farms and producers. Even the wine-by-the-glass choices are a notch above the standard... More

This place was packed for a Saturday morning, but being two people only, we did not wait for too long. Sit at a booth if you can so you can play music using the jukebox (25c each). Our server was nice, but did not check on us often unless I made eye contact with him. Here's what we had: Local... More
