Fresh!!!

Simply put, you will not find a diner with fresh, well prepared, locally procured food anywhere. We stop here for lunch on every trip between Virginia and Philly which is quite often. Chef Ype has it right.

Dirty, sticky juke box keys, shakers and other on table accouterments! Breakfast tasted ok for the most part, but eggs not sufficiently cooked. Initially seated our party of four in a small booth which was best for two adults. Had to ask to be moved to one of several open larger booths. Overpriced for diner experience. Will not be returning,... More

The flat iron steak on their new, fresh, organic menu was very terrific!!! Local meat, not frozen, etc. My wife and I love the new menu. Silver Diner is different from other places in variety and quality. Our server, Juan, was very professional, friendly and attentive. Will be back for the steak!!!!

My wife and I visit this particular Silver Diner about once a quarter and we generally have breakfast in the middle of the day. Without fail she has Eggs Benedict and a Chocolate Shake and I generally have a Belgian Waffle with one or two eggs over easy. These meals are typical diner food--tasty, filling and not too expensive. The... More

The restaurant does not smell good when you walk in. We asked and they said it is all the fresh vegetables they cook. But it's hard to get past it, whatever it was. Our lunch there was really expensive for what it was, which was enough food but just ok tasting.

The food is great and the staff is friendly. Lots to choose from with VERY reasonable prices. The hand painted murials are also nice to look at while you eat.

Actually surprised I didn't reviewed before now. Have frequented the diner for about 9 years now "that's an endorsement in its self" can always count on a good meal here in addition to the service.

We used to go here all the time when we lived in the area. Going back again - not much has changed. The food and service are about average - pricing isn't bad. But it is the atmosphere people enjoy!

I used to frequent this place with my kids a few years ago but stopped going because my wife does not like it. However, I think it's great. I especially like the freshness of their food and that they use local growers and organic food as well. I had egg whites with spinach, tomatoes turkey bacon and it was outstanding.... More
