We had a fantastic family dinner. The service was friendly and prompt. The food is awesome. From the bruschetta and goat cheese appetizer, chunky monkey banana shakes, liver and onions to the crab cakes and burgers. Fresh food excellently prepared. The table top juke boxes that actually work added to the fun experience. Highly recommend Silver Diner.

The menu offers plenty of variety including a lot of local foo, vegetarian, vegan, and low calories. The food is generally very fresh and good. I confess a weakness for their milkshakes that are some of the best I've ever had. Service can be hit or miss. It's generally good and the wait staff is usually eager to help. However,... More

They have vegan milkshakes!!!!!! As someone with a dairy allergy, I love seeing the huge variety of vegan food they have on the menu. It helps me a lot in deciding what to eat. The last time I went, I had fish and chips (clearly not vegan!). Honestly, it was one of the best fish and chips I have ever... More

We had early diner at his diner. The service was great, our waiter was attentive and very polite. The burger that I had was delicious, and it is nice that there is the option of having the burger with a side greek salad instead of fries. I would highly recommend this diner to those traveling through the area.

The food was great, fresh and healthy. The service was slow and either inexperienced or not properly trained. Two separate visits and two different wait persons. They were both pleasant and tried to do their jobs but they were slow, forgot things, didn't check occasionally to see if anything was needed, drinks were not refilled and getting the check took...

They packed up a bread pudding dessert (along with my meatloaf main course) and it was pretty good, even eaten from a styrofoam container. Nice and fast, hefty portion, given that I didn't see many other options, this was a hit for me!

A nice place to share a meal. Items on the menu are locally sourced. My only complaint is the parking can be a bear.

Their Fresh and local food items are pretty wonderful. The food is always tasty and fresh. The kids menu is actually healthy. All in all, this is s great place. The service can be a little spotty, but to their credit, management has always gone above and beyond to get things right.

I visited this restaurant Sunday and had a salad with a hamburger. My friend had breakfast which is served all day. The food was very good. I thought the salad was great and the burger was very tasty. I also had a strawberry shake which was very good. I would recommend trying this place when in the area.
