Happily, we were staying at the Hilton in Rockville, and someone told us the Silver Diner was less than two blocks away, an easy walk. What a great place! We went for dinner one night, and back for two breakfasts in the following days. Great classic diner decor and menu, very reasonable prices, friendly staff, and... everything we ordered was... More

I snuck in here late at night when the rest of the world was asleep. My salmon sliders were cooked perfectly slathered generously with wasabi sauce in a perfectly baked bun. I would come here again late at night. The service can be improved on but hey for a bill for 2 at approx 25 bucks, why not?

When you go here prepare to wait in line. But it's worth it! The food is consistently fresh, many ingredients are organic, and the recipes are tasty. The atmosphere is 1950's-style diner and the music is retro. It's a fun place to go for good food. They even have malts! Good for families, friends, couples or business.

I don't agree with many of the reviews. The selection is wide, but the food has become saltier and saltier. Also, the dessert portions for children are so large that much food is wasted. If there his no line, it is worth going into, but it certainly isn't anything to wait for.

Silver Diner is great for children on Tuesdays because they can dance or make some activities. You can choose your music from a juke box without bothering the next table. I had shrimps that were tasty, though too greasy. Overall this is a family friendly place and the location is next to many shops.

I eat at this diner about once a month. The food is consistently good and priced fairly. Breakfast choices are outstanding. Great burgers, good sandwiches, & some dinner choices. The shakes are outstanding. But what makes this diner unique is the Vegetarian & unusual choices, e.g. Bison. The service is consistent, & they try to make the wait short &... More
