“Always an excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We've eaten here a number of times and always come away satisfied -- and stuffed! The portions, especially if ordering from the dinner menu, are huge. The food is always excellent (and the new menu seems to have even improved it), and the service is very friendly and helpful. Everyone from the manager to the servers makes you feel at home, and this seems particularly true of this Silver Diner in comparison to others we've tried in the past. The prices are very fair, especially given the large portions. Apparently this place is about to begin a renovation of some sort and we're anxious to see what that will mean. We'll certianly find out since this will remain a local favorite for us.

“Always Great Service and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

If there is a line, don't worry it will move with a good pace. The service is always great and the food is decent for the price.

“good breakfast, Ok menu,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The menu has changed (alot) and the selections are probably too varied for them to do any of them really well. Not the typical diner fare, and a bit too innovative with some of the choices. (salads come with their version of the 'right' dressing, not to my liking.
