The chicken and waffles was pretty good. The French fries are very good. Buffalo wings are crispy and delicious.

It didn't live up to the good reviews. The home fries tasted nowhere near freshly cooked. Despite the fact it was not at all a busy time. Coffee was average. Neither food nor plate was really hot as it should be. Sorry to bring the...More

We went here looking for classic American traditional favorites. The decor is perfect, the service is great. The price is high -- but this is the DC area where everything is 25-30% above typical US prices. The real problem here is that the owners felt...More

Taking my grandchildren to the Silver Diner is a great alternative for cooking during the holiday season of shopping and wrapping. Friendly staff and reliable food.

Basic Dinner, has a large verity of items in the Menu. Pretty generic. We had to almost tackle a waiter to get us our bill. OK for a non occasional meal

The classic 50s facade belies a killer menu of comfort food and beyond using local farm fresh ingredients. As a Chopped TV show fan, we revisited the Diner after seeing the diner’s founder win the episode as a competitor. Kinda makes it a gold medal...More

Not just well done classic diner offerings, but creative twists incorporating updated seasonings and ingredients. Nice fusion of international and Americana favorites. Service was attentive and efficient. Will try again when in the area.

For a European like me, seeing such a bling blings restaurant is uncommon. So we took many photos of the outside of the restau. My husband found this when he was looking for a local diner. We were satisfied with the foods and the service....More
