The Silver Diner in the Merrifield neighborhood, just off Gallows Road, was a nice backdrop for an early morning breakfast with friends on Sunday before hitting the road to a few vineyard tastings. The food was really well cooked. We were seated rather quickly despite...More

We had lunch there and it was nice. Service was good. Food arrived hot and tasty. There vegetable that day (sweet potatoes, beets, etc. was wonderful). And we didn't have to mortgage the house as prices were reasonable. Portions are generous.
