We are under almost a foot of snow, and had been out all day long. We walked and were greeted warmly. The waitress was funny, and very friendly. We had a great evening and wonderful meal

It's a nice place with healthy options and a touch of the 50s diners. The service is great, everyone really very polite, and although you might find long queues at different hours, you'll hardly have to wait more than 10 minutes for a table. The menu has a large variety of dishes worth trying, either for a brunch, lunch or... More

The food here is good, really good, but it isn't diner food. No grease, not terribly salty, way beyond basic. And this being the flagship of the chain, we get to try all the new stuff first (sometimes a win, sometimes not). That being said, the staff is the best thing about the restaurant. You want service with a smile,... More

Aside from the infamous milkshakes, which are SO good and you must have one, the food on the menu is maybe not what you'd expect. There is a lot of highly crafted farm to table items on the menu and they work with you if you have food allergies. This is a very popular spot with the locals. During the... More

Silver Diner offers a diverse menu with some surprising choices, including beer and wine. It's always packed and popular with folks of all ages. The food is regionally-sourced and consistently good. Service is friendly and prompt. We sometimes drop in here when we're shopping in the neighborhood. On one occasion an extremely noisy and rambunctious group of pre-teens and their... More

Ordered the classic burger and fries which I found average, but the quality of ingredients was excellent. The service was very personal which I found very homely and polite. Otherwise, average.
