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.

We meet our friends there for lunch when we go,to the movies at Potomac mills. The food is made from fresh locally grown produce. Great selection, also has several dishes gluten free.

I ordered the lamb burger and mom ordered kickin' burger. Both were delicious. Mine was a bit under cooked, when I mentioned to waiter he immediately took to correct. they made a whole new one and it was cooked well. Mom modified the kickin' burger to have no spice and they accommodated. Very tasty. Josh (waiter) was polite but slightly... More

Atmosphere is cool, service is great, food is awesome. It's always kind of noisy inside but that's due to its popularity. Silver Diner served local produce and meat, very well prepared. Last visit I had the fried chicken and pecan waffles. OMG. Chicken was served as two breaded and fried breast filets...which I viewed with mistrust until I tasted them.... More

Even though there is usually a line on Saturday and Sundays, it is no where near the lines at or wait period at IHOP. They move the line quickly and the service is pretty good. The food is always hot and made to order. I love the Belgian waffles - so light and delicious.

Have stopped here several times for dinner while driving to Florida. Convenient, easy to find off of I-95 and easy to get back on to. Clean restaurant, comfortable diner decor. Quick, friendly service. Good portions at a reasonable price. Food is the average dinner food, but not bad.
