“Wish we lived closer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Gaithersburg three nights and didn't visit The Silver Diner until our last morning. I wish we had tried it sooner because we would have eaten more meals there. The food was very fresh, well-executed, and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient and the decor classic diner motif with tableside jukeboxes. Prices are reasonable and they offer gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian options. Their menu is very creative and they partner with local farms for their supply. Loved it and wish we had it in our hometown. It is a little tricky to find if you don't know its located in the Lakeforest Mall between Macy's and JCPenney.

“Couldn't find the place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

REALLY wanted to try this place from TA reviews, but even with GPS on and working- we couldn't find it. After getting back to the hotel and looking on the website, we found that it is located IN the mall between Penneys and Macy's. Hopefully this review will help other out-of-town ers find it. Sad we missed out.

“Still Great After All These Years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My family has been going to The Diner for almost 15 years. Some of us are thrilled with each menu change with the seasons, others still eating the best Chicken Fingers on the eastern seaboard. Where else can you find Wasabi Salmon Sliders next to Meatloaf? Their killer chocolate cake is THE birthday cake for my boys for over 12 years. Great staff, great food, and clean restrooms.

“Great new healthy foods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The diner has revamped their menu to now offer healthy food options with calories listed. It's a great place to get both a high calorie awesome milkshake to a low fat, low carb dish. Great for all diets.

They are also doing fresh prepared local ingredients at reasonable prices.

Went for dinner and we enjoyed the food so much, we decided to order breakfast the next morning for pickup. Everything you expect in a diner.
