I go to this place nearly once a day. Every single time I order the BLT with no tomatoes and a fried egg on top. Best light lunch or dinner you can have. The Establishment is clean and very friendly staff. The atmosphere is upbeat and a throwback. There's nothing like sitting down to have a nice lunch and listening... More

My buddies and I usually hit this place about once a month for breakfast. The service is good and they serve large helpings of food.

Had lunch here with the family twice. The menu has been "upgraded" to a lot of healthier options, and the flavor is still there. We enjoy ordering a milkshake to go with the meal, and even though you get a "food coma" in about an hour, it's really worth it.

I had the crab corn chowder and it was good. Hubby had a burger that was ok. Would have liked to go back and try other menu items. Not super impressed, but would give it another chance if in the area again. Had a nice kids menu with activities that kept the kids entertained until the food arrived.

I'm from New Jersey, which is the diner capital of the USA, so I have high standards for a diner. The Silver Diner met them well, so the choices were not as extensive as a "real diner' and more expensive. Overall, I would recommend it. The service was a little slow and the waiter could have been a little more... More

We'd eaten there last year and enjoyed it so much we just had to return. Well, we were right! This has to be, no kidding, the BEST diner we've ever visited! A wide variety of meals, Breakfast was terrific but we've had lunch there in the past. Very neat decor, clean and very friendly staff.

Sunday, 3 pm Coffee: The coffee was very good. I take mine black, unless it doesn't tasted good enough to drink straight, then I will add cream and sugar. This coffee was delicious as-is, straight black. Chicken and Waffles: The chicken is two breast, batter in corn meal. This is the first time I've had it this way, usually it... More

My husband and I stopped by for brunch. I had the tuna sandwich and my husband ordered the chicken and waffles. Both dishes were great- the oreo milkshake was even better! Our waitress, Nancy, was on point and very friendly. Only complaint was the bathroom trash was overflowing and the towel behind the sink in the restroom was weird. I... More

We stopped in to the Silver Diner on our trip back from New York. It was Fantastic!! Good food and the staff were some of the nicest people we have met. They made us feel special. The breakfast we ordered was delicious and served in a timely fashion. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the old fashion jukebox where we could... More

Greeted with a smile from the hostess and seated promptly. Our waiter was very friendly and talkative. Prices are comparable to Ihop. Food was ok for a diner, nothing special, but sufficient.
