My husband and I had the pleasure of stopping at the Silver diner on a rainy Monday morning. Our experience began by being greeted by a host who promptly sat us in a big ol comfortable booth and told us that our server "Andy" would be with us shortly. And he was. Probably offering us a hot cuppa coffee and... More

This is the 2nd time we have been to this one. It's a good place overall. The food is good and seems fresh. I had the Bison Burger. It was cooked how I ordered it and the grilled veggies were very good. We also had a health shake and it was very good too. Silver Diner does have a lot... More

Came here with family for Easter brunch. It was not crowded. Had a warm reception up front and we were seated right away. Got our drinks right away then service got slower. My coffee was good but refill was slow. Kids food was good but they are easy to please - grilled cheese and French toast - if you mess... More

Silver Diner is a throwback to old-fashioned, airstream style diners. This location gets particularly crowded on the weekends. I dined alone at Silver Diner. It was hard for the host to give me a table, as he only wanted to seat a single person at the counter. After my pointing out several open tables, he begrudgingly sat me at two-top.... More

At one time the service here was excellent. Now. Poor. Staff doesn't seem to care if they get the order right. And if you do carry out the order is now usually wrong. And the food is mushed altogether and skimpy in the portions.

Had lunch with two friends. We all ordered the same item ... half a club sandwich with a bowl of corn chowder. The sandwich was large and the corn chowder very delicious. The service was excellent. Highly recommend this Silver Diner. Also, the prices are very reasonable.
