“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Somewhat hard to find if you have never visited the Reston location. Once you have been it is a snap to get back. The Silver Diner has an extensive menu, with many healthy meal choices, so it is one of our favorite places to eat. They go out of their way to maintain that old diner feel, with working jukeboxes at every booth and friendly service a hallmark. Breakfast seems to be the busiest time at the restaurant, though waits never seem to be that long. Be prepared for a noisy environment though, including lots of families with small children (at least that seems to be the norm at breakfast).
General tip - Request seating at a booth if you want to avoid being next to large parties, as the ends of the restaurant are open to allow tables to be set up in different seating arrangements.

“Artifical, Imitation Diner Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

A fake restaurant in a fake town. Alas, it's also one of the best in the "affordable" category. The food is bland at best. Not what one would call "diner food" to anyone who grew up on such...

“Good diner food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We do not see many dines any longer. The Silver Dinner is great if you like diner food and deserts. It has the typical diner atmosphere which I happen to like. I will eat here again.

“A Good Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

It's a cut above the neighborhood diner. The food is fresh and well prepared. I can't say enough about the service although sometimes it seems to be a bit too attentive. And believe it or not, the wait staff actually knows what balsamic vinegar is - pretty startling for an average priced chain outlet.

When I;m in the area (which is relatively frequently) I stop in for a good dinner where they let me sit and read my book until I'm ready to leave.

Go and enjoy.
