There are lots of fresh, healthy options at the Silver Diner. It is great for any meal. Service can sometimes be a bit slow but the food is definitely worth the trip and is reasonably priced. I am from out of state and look forward to eating at the Silver Diner whenever I am in the area.

I would be hard pressed to think of a worse dining experience that I have had in the last ten or more years. We sat for 15 minutes before waitress, Lesa L, showed up to take our order. We then waited another 10 minutes before she brought our drinks. When the food came it was quite good. Number of fries... More

We had brunch at Silver Diner based on recommendation of local relatives and were very pleasantly surprised! The banana stuffed french toast, country fried steak, fish tacos, and vegetable omelet were all FANTASTIC! Service was excellent. Prices are slightly higher than averaage but very worth it. I highly recommend the Silver Diner

Not impressed given some of the hype about these Silver Diner places. Wait for food was long and they weren't busy. Server was fine if a bit inexperienced. French Fries had that old, cold taste...soggy, like they were sitting around for a while till we ordered them. We got two of the three orders of fries and one was supposed... More

Cannot think of one thing we did not like about this restaurant. We had eggs, pancakes and cobb salad. All were beautifully prepared and super fresh. Milk shakes great, too. The service is amazing. We had Wale. He got everything as we asked. He is a real pro. A must go if visiting College Park area.

This diner serves organic vegetables which they get from the farmers in the area. Their food is delicious. I've taken out-of-town people there and they love it.

I eat here all the time. Fresh food and a lot of veggie options. You can eat healthy dishes here or you can eat fat, completely up to you. Salmon Sliders, great option if you do not eat beef!

This was so unexpected. Not our typical diner fair. Lots of choice that are vegan, glutten-free. All of the vegetables seemed fresh and the menu choices are really good and varied. Would highly recommend this little diner.

I have found it difficult to find good dining options when I travel to Greenbelt, but this was an exception. I stopped in with co-workers for a late dinner after our flight in. I had the pesto goat cheese burger and it was great. My co-workers seemed to enjoy their meals as well. We returned the next day for brunch... More
