“Love the new menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I’ve stopped by at the Silver Diner for a couple of times and recently I noticed that they changed the menu. I think it’s a great improvement; they have some healthier additions with local ingredients. I hope they also expand their desserts options to healthier choices. I like that they close late and the atmosphere is nice. I’ll definitely come back.

“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Somewhat hard to find if you have never visited the Reston location. Once you have been it is a snap to get back. The Silver Diner has an extensive menu, with many healthy meal choices, so it is one of our favorite places to eat. They go out of their way to maintain that old diner feel, with working jukeboxes at every booth and friendly service a hallmark. Breakfast seems to be the busiest time at the restaurant, though waits never seem to be that long. Be prepared for a noisy environment though, including lots of families with small children (at least that seems to be the norm at breakfast).
General tip - Request seating at a booth if you want to avoid being next to large parties, as the ends of the restaurant are open to allow tables to be set up in different seating arrangements.

“Artifical, Imitation Diner Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

A fake restaurant in a fake town. Alas, it's also one of the best in the "affordable" category. The food is bland at best. Not what one would call "diner food" to anyone who grew up on such...

“Good diner food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

We do not see many dines any longer. The Silver Dinner is great if you like diner food and deserts. It has the typical diner atmosphere which I happen to like. I will eat here again.
