My friend treated us to dinner here. They usually get takeout or sit down here once a week. I had a burger and my kids had french toast. My 11 and 10 year olds felt the kids meals were too small for them. We ate on a Saturday night and the restaurant was about 70% full. The food took time... read more

Good food especially the dessert try the milkshakes and pancakes. If you are in to greasy burgers or syrup on french toast go here. There are even jukeboxes at the booths! At the end of your meal ask at the entrance/exit for a cardboard car!

I loved this diner. The menu had traditional and healthy options. It was a rather small menu, but I'm used to Jersey diners. The quesadillas were great, and my teriyaki portobello dish definitely exceeded expectations. The high quality of ingredients and high quality preparation were evident. The coffee and service were good as will. Silver Diner is highly recommended and... More

This is the place we always stop to eat before we fly out of Dulles and when we get back. They closed the one that was close to me and I miss the awesome food, and great service. They took the Tina melt off the menu so I asked and they made it for me. best tuna melt ever. What... More

My husband and I eat breakfast at Silver Diner every Saturday morning. We split an omelet because it is huge. We also eat dinner there on occasion. Dianne is the most wonderful server, always pleasant and keeps our coffee cups filled. The only complaint: weak coffee. For the past several years, Silver Diner has focused on farm to fork food...

Silver Dinner offers a variety of breakfast items, beverage choices and extras. It is always crowded on Sunday--so go early or early afternoon. The service is excellent and the meals arrive without delay, Vegans and vegetarians can find choices that fit their diets.

This is a fantastic diner. If you want eggs any way, scrambled, fried, omlettized, or with french toast you can get it. I am partial to the southwestern omelette, but all of them are fantastic. Lots of good french toast, waffle, and crepe options too. A great spot for kids and they have been trying to use fresh, local ingredients... More

This is one of our neighborhood restaurants. We go here occasionally. We would go often but have had pretty inconsistent service. The waiters and waitresses are usually pleasant enough but often their attention and care is lacking. We frequently have to ask for condiments, napkins, silverware, drink refills or make special requests repeatedly. We wind up feeling like were imposing... More

We decided to find some respite from a recent snowstorm by going to this Silver Diner off of Elden Street. We hadn't been there for a while. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that the eatery now touts buying local and attempts to find healthier ways of cooking breakfast staples. That their home fries are roasted now did not... More

I met some friends for brunch this morning, and though we had to wait a few minutes to be seated, we were seated faster than others (small parties rock). The Huevos Rancheros was good, though less filling than anticipated. The guac on top was good. I would probably go back, but maybe not on a weekend after a big snow!
