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.

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.

I like me some hash-n-eggs, and this diner delivers. Excellent breakfast. Friendly service. Typical diner menu. People seemed satisfied and happy. No complaints we could see or hear. Wife said the pancakes were delicious too.

I love SD and never had a bad experience until 3-weeks ago. The hostess told us to close the door in a very rude manner. When I pointed out that we were customers and had a bad attitude, she never apologized. I went to the manager and he tried to make it okay. I may or may not return.

My visit here is always excellent. The food and the service is fantastic. I've tried other establishments and this is by far the best! Their food is fresh and their service is top quality. I highly recommend you try this restaurant if you are in the area.
