“Best Steak in a Non-Steak Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

The flat iron steak on their new, fresh, organic menu was very terrific!!! Local meat, not frozen, etc. My wife and I love the new menu. Silver Diner is different from other places in variety and quality. Our server, Juan, was very professional, friendly and attentive. Will be back for the steak!!!!

“Breakfast in the middle of the day--hmmm--a good idea!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

My wife and I visit this particular Silver Diner about once a quarter and we generally have breakfast in the middle of the day. Without fail she has Eggs Benedict and a Chocolate Shake and I generally have a Belgian Waffle with one or two eggs over easy. These meals are typical diner food--tasty, filling and not too expensive. The shakes are always thick with enough left over that they bring you the can it was made in. Thecoffee is fresh and hot. Breakfast at 2:00 PM--a great idea on any day. We will be back.

“Overpriced and overpowering smell”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The restaurant does not smell good when you walk in. We asked and they said it is all the fresh vegetables they cook. But it's hard to get past it, whatever it was. Our lunch there was really expensive for what it was, which was enough food but just ok tasting.

“Great place to eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The food is great and the staff is friendly. Lots to choose from with VERY reasonable prices. The hand painted murials are also nice to look at while you eat.
