We visited the Silver Diner as a group of tourists (accompanied by two local residents). The menu was huge and we were spoilt for choice. I opted for meatloaf and was given an enormous portion, with a complimentary bowl of corn chowder on the side. It was very good, if a little overwhelming! The vanilla milkshake was amazing - delicious... More

We ended up here after trying a different restaurant and having a horrible experience (They served us spoiled meat....we got up and walked out and headed to the Silver Diner). How lucky are we! The Silver Diner had the most incredible food! Their menu is diverse with diner style foods...but with a twist. A tasty twist!!! The food is made... More

I had the chicken pot pie. Very good. A little too much tarragon for me, but other than that it was good.

Went for breakfast on a weekday, it wasn't busy but the service was very slow considering it was quiet. Been a few times over the years and used to rate it 5 star every time but the service really let them down this time, there was no enthusiasm from any of the staff from the moment you walk in. However... More

Silver Diner's breakfasts are delicious with many selections--from farm fresh eggs to waffles and fruit and so much more! There are lots of selections for people who have allergies and other dietary restrictions. If you have a large group, you can call ahead to let them know and they can start saving some tables together.

The Silver Diner menu has evolved in the recent years adapting to more conscious clients that pay attention to what they eat. The menu includes low calories and vegetarian meals . Most of the products are sourced locally. We use to eat there at least once a week. Very reliable, excellent service. Highly recommended.

This restaurant has a fairly limited menu but does serve breakfast all day. Food is good but not gourmet. Nice selection of drinks. Service is excellent. Prices are reasonable.

I have to start by stating that the milkshakes are the best that I have tasted, I had the campfire and drank every sip of it. As to the food some, did not find the wow factor. I got the meatloaf and it tasted too salty, my brother got the chicken pot pie and the taste was there but it... More

We stayed in Herdon and stopped here twice on a weekend trip once for breakfast and once late at night for dessert. We had great food and great service both times. The lemon meringue pie was yummy!

This is a great family restaurant because they serve breakfast all day and have a fountain service with good shakes and also good desserts. The food is always right on target and never been disappointed.
