You have to like any resturant that serves breakfast all day, right. Good portions that match the price. Excellent Ruebens, and LOVE the vegatable chili bowl with onions and cheese...****just make sure they serve it to you hot*** Also pretty good fish and chips, and great shakes too....don't tell my Wife I had one :)

I went expecting healthy (no nitrates, preservatives, additives, hormones) in bacon,sausage, egg or milk products but a small portion because they have a chef. I ordered one breakfast for the two of us and a whole filled platter was delivered to each of us. Delish! Service was friendly and helpful! Only downside is waiting for a table and because so...

The "new" menu will have you wondering if you are really in a "diner"! The service is always fast and friendly and the food quite good! Always a good choice, no matter whether it is for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just dessert!

We ate at the Silver Diner for lunch during a trip to the Potomac Mills outlet mall. The diner had that nice 50s diner feel with individual classic jukeboxes at each table. Loved that and it kept my daughter entertained throughout the meal. The food choices were plentiful with locally sourced ingredients. Everything we tried (guacamole pepper jack burger, chocolate...

The staff here were outstanding. We stopped on the way to Williamsburg on a long road trip with a hungry 6 year old and cranky 2 year old. The staff went out of their way to help us out when our 2 year old started to tantrum, bringing balloons and talking to her. The menu is excellent - we recommend... More

We found the Silver Diner by accident after leaving I-95 for fuel near the Potomac Mills outlet area. Man, did we score. Great service by friendly high school kids, made to order great dishes with tremendous portions. Just like flashing back to the 50s. Salads, Entrees, Burgers (great fries too), Soups, Desserts. It's all great but watch how much you... More
