“Cleanliness needs improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Dirty, sticky juke box keys, shakers and other on table accouterments! Breakfast tasted ok for the most part, but eggs not sufficiently cooked. Initially seated our party of four in a small booth which was best for two adults. Had to ask to be moved to one of several open larger booths. Overpriced for diner experience. Will not be returning, although we've been Silver Diner customers almost 17 years.

“Best Steak in a Non-Steak Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

The flat iron steak on their new, fresh, organic menu was very terrific!!! Local meat, not frozen, etc. My wife and I love the new menu. Silver Diner is different from other places in variety and quality. Our server, Juan, was very professional, friendly and attentive. Will be back for the steak!!!!

“Breakfast in the middle of the day--hmmm--a good idea!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

My wife and I visit this particular Silver Diner about once a quarter and we generally have breakfast in the middle of the day. Without fail she has Eggs Benedict and a Chocolate Shake and I generally have a Belgian Waffle with one or two eggs over easy. These meals are typical diner food--tasty, filling and not too expensive. The shakes are always thick with enough left over that they bring you the can it was made in. Thecoffee is fresh and hot. Breakfast at 2:00 PM--a great idea on any day. We will be back.

“Overpriced and overpowering smell”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

The restaurant does not smell good when you walk in. We asked and they said it is all the fresh vegetables they cook. But it's hard to get past it, whatever it was. Our lunch there was really expensive for what it was, which was enough food but just ok tasting.
