I had the steak with mashed potatoes and spinach, and the veggie chilli and it was absolutely delicious. The diner is also super cute inside, each booth has a jukebox and for a quarter you can pick a song to play, it gets put in a queue and then plays. The atmosphere inside was just really warm and cozy, and... More

We were planning on going somewhere else, but there was a long line. Silver Diner sat us right away. The service was very good. Had meatloaf and was pleasantly surprised. Good time had by all.

So, my friend and I ordered from the senior-specials portion of the menu two days after Christmas. We wanted the meatloaf, mashed potatoes and vegetable. Alas, no meat loaf. So we ordered the spaghetti and meat-sauce for the senior-price of $5.95. Good price, but ordinary food. That said, the place was busy and bustling, and the waitress let us sit... More

I refused to go to the Silver Diner for several years because I thought it would be greasy, tasteless, diner food. Wow! I couldn't be more wrong! Their ingredients are fresh and their food is tasty. I have not seen anything greasy - not even their hamburgers. I especially like their salads and the vegetarian meals. The service is prompt,... More

This is not a very conventional diner, although it looks like it on the inside. The menu is extremely diverse and far from typical. They have interesting options, which means that they hardly had typical diner food. When im going to a diner, I want diner food. I ordered a chicken noodle soup, which was $7 and extremely small (you'll... More

Sweet potato fries with honey mustard, kickin corn crab chowder, sliders, huevos rancheros are some of my favorites. When I am feeling virtuous, I order the chicken entree that is 600 calories or less. I also try some seasonal specials. Join the eat well club. Every fifth dinner you get $5 off. Clearly the best restaurant in Greenbelt and reasonably... More

Nice decor, reasonable prices, I really liked the salmon sliders and citrus salad. My wife did not care for her BLT, claiming it had a "funny" taste. Service was very good.

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).
