Gosh, this is a real diner but with great food. Yep, a bit more polished and a bit larger that those I've seen elsewhere but this one comes with something they don't typically have - great food! The staff were trying so hard - can I get you anything - how was your meal - are you sure, etc. I... More

I love this place. Has become one of our favorites. I was just scrolling through Trip Advisor and saw it. I wanted to put in a plug for people like me. I want good quality, healthy but real, delicious, serious food. I don't like anything too odd or "inventive." The Silver Diner does it right. They have a huge menu... More

After we had shopped at the mall, we had a hard time finding a place to eat, since all the restaurants around the mall were packed. We drove around the mall and then came across the Silver Diner. Thankfully we found this place! The service and food was excellent! It is an oldies style atmosphere. My children enjoyed it. All... More

We were in a Wendy's parking lot when thankfully I spotted this place across the intersection. It looked like a typical diner but the menu was anything but typical. They had a lot of vegetarian and a few vegan choices in addition to more normal choices. They also offered things such as bison burgers. The food was pretty decent but... More

I really enjoyed my meal at the Silver Diner. At the Silver Diner you can expect a nice meal for your family. At the front waiting area they will give your kids a toy car made from paper, they have many colors and styles. The Silver Diner accommodates gluten free dining. There were great choices for me! I loved my... More

When you live near Jersey (state with the most diners) you're accustomed to diner food and pray you'll find a gem when you're on a road trip... Silver Diner is so much more than just a diner though. With it's menu clearly pointing out gluten free, veg friendly and heart healthy options and the food comes from local grown sources,... More

I have been to several Silver Diners over the years and I have noticed recently that the food is not as good as it used to be. We recently dined at the one in Woodbridge VA and the service was OK, but a little inattentive. The food took quite a while (and it was only sandwiches) and when it came... More

Love the local philosophy of this group of restaurants. The menu is fantastic! There is something for everyone. We enjoyed all 5 breakfast entrees. Our waitress Teresa was so friendly and efficient. We will be back for sure.

Our kids love to go here and play songs on the jukebox and eat breakfast for dinner. It's a fun ambience and the food is tasty.
