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

All the classic diner choices plus many other interesting menu items, really nice restaurant with loads of classic diner touches like the table-top jukebox selectors. Good food and speedy service even when the place is packed. Prices a little higher than other diner style food places but you're paying for the quality.

Breakfast at the Silver Diner was very satisfying. We got big mugs of coffee and then we were told that the kitchen was backed up with orders. The wait was not too long and then we got expertly cooked bacon, eggs and hash browns, and biscuits. The waitress apologized for the wait. As we got ready to leave, the manager... More

Silver Diner has been a staple in southern Maryland and northern Virginia for about 2 decades. This particular Silver Diner is a recently built replacement for their original flagship restaurant that was about a mile south. Why is this important? Because the original chef/owner still lives in the same town, so the quality is maintained as was the quality of... More

We relocated to Wash DC from NYC 15 years ago and have finally found a "real authentic diner" in the area. The food is not only good but good for you. Everything we've ordered has been delicious (my fav being the roast turkey and mashed pot with gravy and cranberry.) They have an amazing selection of deserts which include 4... More

The Silver Diner is everything a diner should be. If you're looking for gourmet food, this isn't the place, but if you're after a reliable, classic diner-style place, it's perfect. The service is friendly and competent, the menu extremely varied, and the ambience is just what you'd expect at a diner. Often, it is the only place open after a... More
