Great Diner!

All the food was great, The caramel French toast was exceptional. There was a long line out the door when we got there on a Sunday morning but we were at our table in about 15 minutes. The only negative (and it is a very slight negative) is that the server spoke so softly, it was hard to hear... read more

Not what we anticipated, citing the favorable reviews.Touting "fresh, farm to table" ingredients...you would think the salads would be extraordinary...didn't happen! Bagged lettuce, and carrots...dressing awful...all just average. I ordered the liver and onions because of recommendations...came almost raw...sent back and came back burned on one side...inedible. Service poor...much better meal and service at the Hilton Garden Inn. Yes, a... More

This diner demonstrates what diners can do using local products. Quality of food is always fresh and prepared in a skillful manner using a selection of organic ingredients.The menu features the usual diner items plus a senior menu and an under 600 calorie section.

While visiting my daughter, we stopped here for lunch. Had a turkey and avacato panini sandwich with the best cold slaw I have ever eaten. Went back same week for another and then once more. The food is really good and kids love it. Highly recommend.

Using lots of local-sourced ingredients, the food at Silver Diner is always a good deal. Best of all, they have cooks who know how to prepare liver correctly, so I can get a reliably good liver-and-onions fix, when I'm hankering for it.

Nice place not too far off the 66. Great food, fast service, clean and friendly. Getting into the parking lot is a bit interesting.

We ate breakfast here twice in June, 2015 and paid less than the $10.95 each our Hilton Garden Inn was charging for ANY breakfast, even a bowl of oatmeal or a cup of yogurt. If you are not from the VA-MD-DC area, you likely never ate at this local chain, but we suggest you consider this large restaurant built to... More

Have been here many time fir either breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They have a great selection of food and everything I have ordered from eggs to a salad has been very good. Takes a little long to get your food but the service is good.
