We've been using Silver Diner as a regular eating place for years. The service is always excellent, the menu is varied and the food quality and management are as good as you get.

There was a great variety of food, with seasonal, gluten free, and vegan options. Every thing we ordered was delicious , and the service was fast. The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect. It was classy but not fancy. A cool mix of fancy food with casual dining. I would go back anytime!!!

A great place to stop in for people who are interested in a "Flexitarian" menu! We were floored by the options! Our kids loved the choices including quinoa spaghetti and the traditional child favorite of chicken fingers and french fries. We had so many options of healthy fare at a reasonable price. Soy ice cream and veggie main courses! Highly... More

Where do I begin? Most of the food is locally sourced, but the price was great! I felt as though I had a good quality meal. The waitress we got was very friendly. She was busy and so while it was true we had to wait to get refills on drinks or our check, she was good. My parents and... More

Pulled in not sure what to expect as it appears a 50s diner. However they have quite a menu featuring local and organic ingredients including GF and vegetarian items. Pot roast was excellent (esp. the potatoes) and hubs enjoyed the lamb burger (a new item apparently). Reasonably priced as entrees were around $12-13/each.

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
