Great Food!!

Came here before and always a line, but not today, got here before the rush. Food is great as the service and the attire of all the servers shows they care for their appearance and very courteous. Definitely will come back.

Very good choice of food options for people that do not eat dead animals. Food was very tasty and fairly priced.

Silver Dinner consistently has good, original food and moderate prices. Many local and healthy ingredients used. We've been eating here for years and plan to return regularly.

I literally stumbled across this diner on a recent road trip, I was actually planning on going to the chain restaurant across the street, but saw the shiny exterior and decided to give it a try, one of my best decisions of the trip! The diner was clean and had the appropriate "diner" decor, the staff was friendly and efficient,... More

This would not be an excellent fine dining place, but among diners, it's in elite company with places like the New England Diner. The service is cheerful and competent, from the greeter at the front door to the servers. The entrees (we had eggs benedict and country fried steak and eggs) were excellent. The place gives as good a road... More

Food was over cooked and not to order. Service was slightly above average. Not really impressed with the overall attitude of the staff

I've been here twice for breakfast when visiting family and loved it both times. Great diner atmosphere, very friendly competent wait staff, huge menu with lots of healthy and not so healthy choices. They rock breakfast. I had a healthy omelette that tasted great. Prices were very reasonable.

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
