We needed a breakfast/lunch option on the way from DC to Richmond and found the Silver Diner near Potomac Mills a perfect option. The menu is plentiful and they take advantage of local farms and produce to provide fresh offerings. One of their co-founders was recently featured on Food Network (Chopped) and is often enhancing menu selections. Definitely would come... More

Highly recommended by a few people we were traveling with...tried it and was not disappointed. Fish Taco (flounder) is ok, may need a bit of salt. Comes with an outstanding salad, fresh strawberries (huge), peaches, dried fruits and nuts, and baby spinach...perfect for brunch. French Toast comes with banana slices & chocolate chips, it is good but none special. Pancakes... More

I must start this review by saying that I am not a big fan of diners, but we had a large group and the location was convenient. We went for breakfast and the place was packed. The meals were average - no one raved about the food. It was standard diner menu. However, the service was excellent and our waitress... More

Great healthy food. Celebrated kids birrhday. Love the milkshakes and burgers but favorite dish is the Chicken Picatta. Friendly service! Love the old style table juke box.

My gluten-free spouse and I come here all the time but we seem to like the short waiting line to get to their breakfast. My wife alternates between quinoa pancakes and banana stuffed French Toast and I am gradually working my way through all the omelets. Loved the Philly cheese steak today served nice and hot. The wait staff is... More

Clean comfortable diner with great service and great food. We stopped for dinner on a Thursday night and were seated and served promptly. We both had the Koch's Farm Free-Range Turkey Platter which was excellent. Much better than we expected. When traveling through this area in the future, The Silver Diner will be our choice.

The Silver Diner makes some very nice food. I'm just of the opinion that if the restaurant has the words "diner" in it, it should have such a focus on "organic", "artisanal", or "heart-healthy". I can't face that at a weekend breakfast. That said, my son does ask to go there so, we go sometimes.

I stopped here because of all the breakfast places in the Woodbridge area this is rated the highest. The staff is very attentive and very friendly and the food is fantastic. If you have some extra time, not that you needed because they're very quick, stop in and try out the caramel French toast

In the area for our work, we had a late dinner here one night after finishing. Had been to one in Fairfax VA for brunch earlier this year and was so pleased. Food was delicious and imaginative, service excellent, atmosphere friendly and comfortable. Go here. Not your father's diner.
