We met family here for Sunday brunch. Since it is a very popular spot, it was probably not the best choice for 6 people to meet on a Sunday morning. Although the line to get in was long, it moved fairly quickly. The food was excellent, and the service was very good.

This place is not what it seems from the look. Although there is plenty of traditional comfort food they have a large selection of locally grown and healthy food. Make sure you get the fried brussel sprouts appetizer. I could eat those every day!

We were a group of 6, 2 of whom are vegans. We usually have a tough time finding a place that works for all of us. We were seated quickly and the food was good. The vegans loved the hibiscus mango shake. I will say the booth they put us in was too small for 6 adults but we made... More

Stopped into to enjoy lunch before traveling home. Nice decor, great prices, food was excellent. Service staff appeared frazzled, but it could be a result of the lunch crowd. Dining ware needs a bit more attention. Overall great staff, very accommodating manager.

Silver Diner is an enormously popular place (I waited about 15 minutes for a table), and serves food that is a cut above what you might expect from a diner. That said, the food is only OK, and the place can be very crowded and loud. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxed dinner, this ain't it. However, the... More

Silver Diner jumped on the locally sourced healthier recipe kick and succeeded. There are plenty of "healthier" options as well as typical diner fair. Again, this is not a place to have an orgasmic food experience, but it's tasty, filling and much better than the National chains. Service has been consistently friendly and competent even when the place was filled... More

My wife and I have become frequent patrons of Silver Diner. I am gluten intolerant and they provide a nice selection of menu items that meet my needs. They also feature locally sourced suppliers, “heart-healthy” options, non-GMO produce (in season), no trans fats, etc. If this is staring to sound like a “paid advertisement,” I apologize. It's just that my... More

We were on the road and after driving through DC, very hungry. Enjoyed the salmon sliders with spinach salad. So many healthy and delicious menu options made it hard to choose. Love the farm to table experience too. Highly recommend!

I came here for dinner with my wife and grandson. The diner is very large and can accommodate many people. The service was prompt, courteous and we were very well taken care of throughout our dinner. The diner prides itself on using fresh, locally sourced foods and their menu explains the various partnerships that exist to achieve this goal. My... More

Incredibly nice staff and place immaculately clean. Fast service and food was good quality and plentiful. The club sandwich was very tasty. This is a great place for kids, a casual lunch or dinner. Would definitely return again.
