Just great food, beer and wine in a relaxing family atmosphere. Pot roast was great as was the citrus salad. No picture because I ate it faster then I could take a picture. Lol

This diner was clean and the staff was friendly. They offer excellent, seemingly responsibly sourced dishes and great music.

Have been there twice since my daughter moved to the area. Service was great and food was excellent. Have had breakfast and lunch there. They have traditional diner food (burgers, chicken fingers) and nontraditional items (fish tacos, stir fry). Plan to return.

Our visit in search of a good breakfast resulted in a GREAT breakfast! This LOOKS like a typical NJ diner on the outside but inside there are several things that turn it into a GREAT diner. First is service quality...friendly and attentive. Next is the quality of the food. First class. Little things like the way they place the flatware... More

I am a traveling Ob/Gyn (drcathylbagleydotcom) who found myself hungry after dinnertime in Greenbelt, Maryland this week on business. I checked out the Silver Diner on the advice of a friend. It was conveniently located~ a mile on a major drag from my hotel. The Silver Diner provided a spacious, well-lite, family-friendly environment with a variety reasonably priced meals. There... More

I had the steak with mashed potatoes and spinach, and the veggie chilli and it was absolutely delicious. The diner is also super cute inside, each booth has a jukebox and for a quarter you can pick a song to play, it gets put in a queue and then plays. The atmosphere inside was just really warm and cozy, and... More

We were planning on going somewhere else, but there was a long line. Silver Diner sat us right away. The service was very good. Had meatloaf and was pleasantly surprised. Good time had by all.

So, my friend and I ordered from the senior-specials portion of the menu two days after Christmas. We wanted the meatloaf, mashed potatoes and vegetable. Alas, no meat loaf. So we ordered the spaghetti and meat-sauce for the senior-price of $5.95. Good price, but ordinary food. That said, the place was busy and bustling, and the waitress let us sit... More

I refused to go to the Silver Diner for several years because I thought it would be greasy, tasteless, diner food. Wow! I couldn't be more wrong! Their ingredients are fresh and their food is tasty. I have not seen anything greasy - not even their hamburgers. I especially like their salads and the vegetarian meals. The service is prompt,... More
