“The American Diner doesn't get better than this”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Whether you choose the all-day breakfast or something a little different, such as the delicious salmon and wasabi sliders, served with a fruity salad, you can't go wrong at these well-run restaurants. Families with young children are made welcome and service is fast, friendly and efficient. Coffee is good and plentiful. A surprising number of business people use this chain too.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

They say there's a money-back guarantee if you don't have friendly service, and it showed! The service was great, atmosphere was fun, and the food was served quickly and was quite tasty. Coffee refills were timely - would definitely return!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

I ate here with my parents on a recent mini vacation in the DC area. We passed this restaurant on the way to our motel and decided to try it out. Food was good...lots of choices. I split the pot roast dinner with my mom. My dad had a burger and fries. This place was very busy but the service was very quick. The menu boasts lots of organic options and uses many local farmers to provide food for their menu items. We enjoyed it enough to return for breakfast the next morning. Again there are lots of choices - and not just your standard breakfast fare. I'd say it's a little more expensive than I expected, but not too bad. I guess I was expecting a Denny's or IHOP style place since it looks like a old timey diner, but the prices were a bit more expensive. We still enjoyed our meals and the service was excellent.

“Good Late Night Spot”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

My wife and I ate a very late dinner at the Silver Diner after attending a concert at the Patriot Center. Even being very tired, we enjoyed the food here. I got the Bison Juevos Rancheros and my wife got the Pancakes and Eggs breakfast. My only criticism was that the miniature jukebox was a bit loud until we figured out how to turn it off. Otherwise, I would say Silver Diner is a good option for late night dining.
