The Silver Diner has delicious food, great prices and the waitstaff can't do enough to make your dining experience wonderful. We were with friends and only stayed in Rockville, 2 nights and after eating there the first night we decided the food was so good we would eat there again the next evening. Your choices are great and the food... More

A sign on the door suggests that if the line is inside the door, the wait is usually less the 10 minutes. An 11 minute wait was close enough and the wait was worthwhile. The menu is quite expansive including gluten free and vegan offerings. My wife ordered the pot roast and was most pleased with the meal. The healthy... More

This is my second time eating at a Silver Diner and both times, I found the food to be wonderful. It’s plentiful and delicious. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable, and the prices are reasonable for the area.

Great 50s diner look but this is NOT a greasy spoon. Delicious food and the coffee was great. I loved my omelette...perfect and made with locally sourced Amish eggs. Go eat and smile

We ate here twice while staying in Rockville. Absolutely delicious food and wonderful service. They have gluten-free and vegan meals. I loved that they use local produce and also use nitrate-free bacon, hormone-free & antibiotic-free meats and organic ketchup. As a gluten-free eater, I had the Portabella Pesto Veggie Pasta (organic gluten-free quinoa pasta) and then the Santa Cruz Chicken.... More

After the Bruno Mars Concert at Bristow we had to stop over for dinner somewhere and I'm glad we stopped here. Great place. Good ambience. Comfortable. Food is great too. I had the warm vegetable salad with grilled salmon and my wife had fish tacos. Well spent $40

The line was out the door when we got there but we were seated in 10 minutes. Great breakfast. Waffle is the best I have ever had. Crispy on the outside and airy in the middle.

I have never set foot inside this restaurant but my wife eats here with friends frequently and she always brings me something because I love their low calorie dishes! The Mango Vegetarian Stir Fry is my favorite, followed by the turkey burger which is no big whoop, but it's a good option when I want to switch up. Even though... More

I'll be honest and say that I enjoyed my buffalo bleu cheese burger and another person in our group enjoyed her lamb burger but 2 our of 4 meals being ordered and enjoyed was about as good as it gets. My youngest daughter ordered her steak medium and it bled like a stuck hog. My oldest daughter who has a... More

Elizabeth, thank you for your detailed review! I am very sorry to hear that an otherwise great visit ended with your daughter having an allergic reaction, I can understand how disappointing this must have been. We do our best to alert our guests of major known allergies, but to be certain, we have an allergen guide available in all of... More
