Good atmosphere for family dinner. Good milkshakes, good sandwiches, good jukebox music. Server was so courteous, good portion, that is what I called "Good old American fare"

Have been to this diner in Rockville many times. It's always good, but never better than good. It really has that Jersey diner ambiance, which I like. It has a great variety of meals for breakfast. My favorite is the omelet, but the pancakes are good too. Home-fried potatoes are served with many of the meals and they are good... More

The food is always fresh and well prepared. The diner is fast becoming an institution in the Maryland area. You can always find something to suit everybody's taste, so it's great for any size group. The new menu features low cal - healthy options as well as typical burgers and fries and the Belgian waffles are fabulous for brunch.

Finally! The food is wonderful. Parking can fill up quickly in this area but it is worth it. There really is something for everyone and the portions are hearty. I always take home part of my meal. Service is fast and reliable.

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.
