I've wanted to like Silver Diner for years. I like the fact that they've adopted a farm-to-table motif. The head chef of the organization, though, Ype Von Hengst, has for years tried to take the concept of a classic American diner and make it fancy...More

This chain is trying hard to emphasize its Farm to Table menu, and has a fun diner vibe. However, it's not "diner" prices. Most breakfast entrees are $8-15. Food is ok not great. Service is friendly but flawed.

We had lunch there and it was nice. Service was good. Food arrived hot and tasty. There vegetable that day (sweet potatoes, beets, etc. was wonderful). And we didn't have to mortgage the house as prices were reasonable. Portions are generous.

Love this place for breakfast. Crab cakes Benedict is amazing and enough for two! Lunch is typical chain fare, but fresh and plentiful.

This place has been a family favorite for years. Everyone loves good Diner Food! That being said, these guys have added A LOT of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu items over the past several years. This has caused the menu to expand quite a bit....More

Being able to order farm to table food at a moderately priced, family-friendly restaurant gets my vote every time. We've enjoyed a number of dishes including the bison huevos rancheros, the turkey chili, the warm roasted local vegetable salad (easily serves two), the short rib...More
