The food is straightforward using healthy ingredients or traditional American diner food whichever you prefer from a huge menu. Veggie friendly and seasonal foods. The ambience is diner--old fashioned jukebox with sound quality from the 50s. Service is attentive. Prices are excellent.

We went to the Diner because they were providing $5 coupons at the Marine Corps Marathon expo. There was about a half hour wait but the move people in and out pretty quick. We all had milk shakes! I had the Nutella Banana shake and it was amazing. We had the basics, bacon, eggs, pancakes and home fries. Very good food, service and delightful atmosphere.

'Farm to Table' - that said to me 'fancy dishes', 'small portions', 'high prices'. Well, I was WRONG. There were some fancy touches but the portions certainly weren't small. My wife twice had the shrimp scampi and was not able to finish it. We were offered a doggy bag, but there was no microwave in our motel room so we had to pass on that. The dishes she had the other days were also excellent. I had the Rhode Island shrimp all 4 times. 10 extra large or jumbo shrimp. Excellent flavor.

The salad (a green salad, no dressing) was the best salad I have had anywhere, including at home where I have control over the ingredients.

Prices are decent, certainly lower than I expected. Service was fine. When we ate two days in a row, the waiter from the first night recognized us and welcomed us back.

As the title says, we ate there 4 times in 9 days.

The staff was wonderful, a good cup of coffee with a nostalgic feel of an old time diner. My husband loved the hash and I enjoyed my grits and sausage. Close to the Clarendon Metro and a good stop before heading into DC.

Since the Silver Diner revamped its menu to offer more healthy choices and locally-sourced supplies, we go to SD about once a month. What is not to like? Food is tasty (and healthy if we choose), value is outstanding, and service is prompt and courteous. There seems to be a genuine concern for the customers that filters down from chef Ype to all the employees.
Never disappointed except for short delays in getting seated occasionally at prime times.
