We chose it for ease/location near our hotel. The food is pretty good (the spicy shrimp and fish tacos were great!). Our waitress left much to be desired in terms of service with a smile. Nevertheless we left full and happy and that was the...More

Filled with families, couples etc etc. About a 20 minute wait on a Saturday night. Typical diner menu - i.e. anything you want you will find on it. Booths and tables. Loud decibel.

Always go to Silver Diner when in the area. Food is always hot, fresh, and good. There is a wide selection to choose from on the breakfast menu.

Silver diner is a chain restaurant and very good as a conventional diner. What makes it unique is the localy sourced ingredients and innovative menu items.

The service is always top-notch for the type of establishment it is. The food, however, belies the "diner" stereotype. It's locally sourced, and well-prepared-and-presented. The hot food arrives hot (of late, no mean feat in all too few restaurants) and the cold food arrives cold....More

No reservations. Always a long line on Thur-Sun nights I hear, but the food is worth the wait.

Silver Diner is all age friendly from babes in arms to aged patrons. The one in Rockville MD has a schoolchildren evening every Tuesday. My grandchildren love the place.
