My favorite diner. Sit at the counter, say hi to the hard working servers. The wheat toast is especially good, and the strawberries are always fresh. My companion loves the meat loaf. (What else would you get at a diner?)

The service here was pretty good. I visited this restaurant, for desert. I ordered a slice of cake, and was very displeased with the quality of the cake. First and foremost, was the cake was very dry. The quality overall was not good. This is not a place, that I would revisit.

The service was wonderful and the food delicious. The portions were very large especially the sandwiches. The fries were the best I have had in a restaurant and came in a cute paper filled dish. The prices were reasonable so we would definitely go back there again when we are in the neighborhood. We noticed that there are many more... More

Great experience and food. Everything is locally sourced and fresh. Wife and MIL had the meatloaf which I sampled and very much enjoyed. I had a bison burger which was delicious. Service was extremely friendly. Will likely return when in the area.

Went there for breakfast. Decent food. Prices a little higher than expected. Very loud in there. Quick friendly service. Would probably go to a IHOP in the future for breakfast. Good enough but not spectacular.

I've never had a bad a meal there yet, and if they remotely suspect you're the least bit unhappy, they make it right. I love their rewards program too along with free wi-fi - my only complaint is the coffee is on the weaker side and find i'm always surprisingly disappointed...

Was really impressed by the choices from a diner! Many, many healthy choices. Large portions, and local ingredients. Very friendly service, but slow on the refills and getting boxes for leftovers. Would definitely eat here again for the quality of food. Not a typical diner.

The Silver Diner food is average at best. I had beef burger, free of chemicals, hormones and taste. Cold bun along with cold fries made for an I would not eat here again experience. Save your money go somewhere else!

We went there on a busy Saturday night, the place was packed and it took a while to get a table. The service was good, the food comes in huge portions and is generally ok, I was happy with my choice of salad but there was nothing to make it stand out. The shakes were nice.

The Silver Diner has been a fixture in Rockville, Maryland for decades, though it has changed locations in recent years. This is a terrific place for a meal at any time of the day. The food is wonderful, portions generous, prices very reasonable. Milkshakes are great too. If you aren't careful about the time you go there, you might find... More
