We visit the Silver Diner with friends at least once a week, usually for diner after seeing a film. The Diner has a broad menu catering for virtually every taste. Three in our party are vegetarian and another is gluten intolerant, yet we always have a good range of food from which to choose, and we... read more

The food is just average but there seems to be an infinite variety of meals to choose from. The service was pretty weak: wrong meals brought to our table more than once; long wait for the check; wrong check given to us at the end. However, the ambiance is like a real NJ diner and thats make it a lot... More

Friendly, well-trained, attentive wait staff, good value due to large portions, fairly reasonably priced, clean,not too weird, delicious food--some of it even normal and large variety, 50's mini juke boxes at every table is great.

Every couple of months we come back to the Silver Diner. This place continues to consistently deliver great tasting food at a good price. Our server this time was Michael. Fast, friendly and informative. This place does not disappoint.

Met here with business group and it was right place for conversation. They were most accommodating letting us sit for over an hour till entire party arrived. Granted it was mid-week so suspect doing this on busy weekend or holiday may have been difficult. Food was excellent, including not only usual diner fare, but also more health conscious offerings. Will... More

I go to this Silver Diner regularly for breakfast and lunch and the new, healthier menu items are all excellent. Their omelettes are delicious (my favorite, the goat cheese with tomatoes and fresh basil, is still available by request, despite it being taken off the menu) and are served with delicious multigrain toast & fresh fruit. They are good about... More

Although I wasn't very hungry I accompanied my mother in law here for a late lunch. She had eggs and toast. When I saw that they were trying to get most of their food from local places I decided to try veggie chili and salmon sliders. Both were very good! The service was also excellent. We really enjoyed ourselves. Leslie

I saw that the Silver Diner has an overall four star rating. Everyone has their own standards, I know. However, if this is four stars, then Trip Advisor needs to add a 6th star. This is a clean, family friendly standard modern style diner. We go there on occasion because it's in our area, but we come knowing it's a... More

Came here on a whim while visiting friends this past week. None of us had been there before, so we figured we'd give it a shot. It looks like your typical diner, jukeboxes on the table (a quarter will put your song pick in the rotation). Firstly, the place needs a cleaning. I get it was super busy when we... More
