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

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!
