This is the largest dining cars I've seen. It's been added to a couple of times. My family and I had no trouble being seated ,the service was good, and our meals all were very good. Generous helpings were appreciated. My grandson was fascinated by the juke box control at our table. (Too bad the sound wasn't up loud enough... More

This was a really good dining experience. They remind me a lot of the Marietta Diner in Georgia. The place was packed, but the line to get a table moved really fast. The food was really tasty. It was different than what I am used to down south. (Go Dawgs). I had the chicken and waffles. I loved the waffle!... More

It's had to decide what to eat at the Silver Diner. They have traditional favorites like burgers, fries, and shakes. They have all day omelets if you missed breakfast. But then there is the Flexitarian menu which has many innovative choices like fried green tomatoes and kale and blue cheese salad. I enjoyed the Crab and Corn soup and the... More

I love the options!! Everything from healthy organic veggie-focused fare for myself through banana stuffed French toast with whipped cream for my grandson!! Fare prices. Prompt service. That means there can be a wait to get in.

Everything we had was top notch, including eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, waffles, pancakes, and corned beef hash! Efficient yet friendly service, comfy booths with a retro juke box system, and quick, too; what's not to love? The only entrance is just a bit tricky your first time because there is a median; it is further easy than we expected and... More

Forget any preconceived notions of greasy diner food. I've eaten here three times in the last month while our home is under renovation, and each meal has been fresh-tasting, delicious and healthy. Particularly loved the citrus salad with an awesome salmon fillet and fish tacos that were under 600 calories. Lots of vegetarian options and, ok, I tried the fries... More

We moved to NoVA 8 years ago and found Silver Diner. They were awesome, good food, fun environment, and service WAS pretty good. Then they changed their menu and their customer service. We used to go every single week. Friday nights for dinner, then we noticed that the servers either didn't get our order correctly or they would charge us... More

I have gone here for breakfast a few times and it is pretty good. The selection is your typical diner food. They have some new farm to table selections. These seem to be healthier than the usual offerings. Service is prompt. The retro look is neat. Breakfast on the weekends has a line to get in.

We had breakfast and lunch over the last three days. The food and service was excellent but it is a bit pricey. Loved the interior - not your typical diner.

Like the goldilocks story, this one is just right! It's removed from the crazy mall sites nearby, but close enough to attract customers, and isolated enough to usually not require a wait for a table. Excellent service. Standard SD food/menu is always good. Most people don't know they also serve wine. Try the salmon sliders, yum!
