Delicious food! Lots of options for all kinds of eaters. Cute atmosphere. Very popular and there may be a wait to get in. Well worth the wait. Excellent for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. YUMMY!

I was expecting a regular dinner (and they do have a dinner like menu with a lot of variety) but they specialize in local, fresh ingredients. The staff was awesome, keeping the hubby's water glass full (he'll drink 3-4 glasses, so it is great when he doesn't have to keep asking to fill it).

My ex and I meet for breakfast at the Greenbelt Silver Diner every Monday or Tuesday morning that I'm in town, and it's astonishing how busy they are on weekday mornings. The food can't be the explanation, since it's always reliably okay without ever being especially tasty or even in the same universe as delicious, and, to my taste anyway,... More

What a nice experience. Great service with friendly staff. The food was good and the ambient makes your diner experience even better. A little jukebox on the table. All over experience is just great. Besides of that, the prices are reasonable. I only can recommend that place! Enjoy!!!

This is more than a diner. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Milk shakes are a must! A must stop near college park.

We went here for breakfast. I had the Philly Steak omelette with fruit and my wife had pancake and eggs. The omelette was hot, fresh and very large. I could hardly eat it all. The fruit was very fresh. My wife's eggs were good well but the pancakes were very dry and needed copious amounts of syrup but then that... More

It's ok BUT definitely a chain... Try a local mom and pop diner if you want real diner food! The concept of fresh is ruined when our server told us how the farm fresh food is shipped in bags prepared frozen.

jowebb2015, thanks for the review. I am sorry your server misinformed you. We do get our items fresh and then prepare them in our kitchen. Our ingredients never see the freezer, with the exception of ice cream. I would like to hear more details about your visit, please contact me at communityrelations@silverdiner.com.

I wish I could give this restaurant 5 stars. We went for breakfast and the food was sooooooo good! My husband is gluten free and they had plenty of items for him. Our three kids (ages 2, 6, 8) LOVED the kid's menu because it came with a cute cardboard truck! They were well entertained until our food came! We... More
