Who doesn't love breakfast? At the Silver Diner you can get it anytime, and boy oh boy, is it ever great. From tex-mex specialties like Huevos Rancheros, to classic pancakes and eggs. Eggs Benedict and interesting new spins with avocado or guac...they are all tasty! Service is great and... read more

Food is truly superb, with numerous healthy choices. Salads are excellent, as are the seafood dishes. Service is usually excellent, even considering the crowds for lunch and dinner. Not noisy, which we found amazing considering the number of people. While it brings back fond memories of 50 years ago, upgrade the image substantially with excellent food, and you have a... More

While there is often a long wait on weekends, it is well worth it. All of the staff are pleasant and friendly and the food couldn't be better.

The food at Silver Diner is wonderful. There are a lot of healthy options. The only problem is that they say that they are family friendly and they have kids night on Tuesdays etc. but they exclude those with sever peanut allergies. It is not a safe restaurant to visit if you have a peanut allergy! (and I note they... More

Visited on a Friday morning and had a great breakfast. Husband had pancakes eggs and sausage and I had eggs, bacon, potatoes and a biscuit. Both meals were very good and the portions were big. Recommend!

I make sure the Silver Diner makes it into my dining-out rotation anytime I'm in the DC area, and the Rockville location does not disappoint! The staff are friendly and accurate, although often quite busy and not exactly fast with their service. The food, though -- it's above critique. Everything tastes fresh, made-to-order, and delicious. I love the Silver Diner,... More

Silver Diners are a chain and I think I have been to almost all of them within the VA-MD area and have never been disappointed. They use great fresh ingredients which are locally sourced and have plenty of healthy food options that are delectable as well. Prices make this a real value, as does the impeccable service.

We had a business breakfast and were received exceptionally well. The concept of using local products is great and so was the breakfast. Great choice of various omelettes and other breakfasts
