Your arrival at 6:30 am is not too soon for fresh coffee and a friendly staff. The dishes have local ingredients and there are meals with 600 calories or less. There is a little something for everyone, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and more. The Kale Salad, Tuna Avocado Sandwich, and turkey sandwich were great. Yes, we could have gotten the regular...

Upon arriving in the Fairfax area late in the evening my husband and I were extremely hungry. Where can you get decent food at midnight? Trip advisor led us to The Silver Diner. The ambiance is that of a cute old fashioned diner complete with a jukebox at every table. The selections were vast and much of the food is... More

Very nice diner that buys from local farms and makes the food as healthy and organic as possible. Had 2 breakfasts and dinner here. The meatloaf was delish, very oniony. Loved the breakfasts as well.

We had dinner here the other night. The diner has some special food items based on the top chef tv show. The food was excellent and the staff were very nice. The prices were about right for the type of food. I only gave it a 4 because it was nice but not over the top

You get the diner experience. The food is good and the atmosphere is comfortable. Service can be shaky depending upon how crowded they are.

Service turns over fast here so it is pretty spotty, but the food is usually solid. I love they have bison and lamb burgers in addition to more typical beef, turkey, or vegetable burgers. The sweet potato fries are very good as are the shakes, healthy or indulgent. Breakfast items are great, too, but bad service has made me less... More

Had a co-worker at INOVA fairfax that we visited and afterwards a group of us came over to Silver Diner. Huge menu selection and good service and one of the few diners in the NOVA area. The service was good and the prices were more than fair. Always a spot on my radar when I am in that part of... More

We arrived for dinner on a Sunday evening and were seated promptly. The waitress came as soon as we were seated to take drink orders for our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children). They have a wide food selection for both children and adults. While the drinks were served promptly, the last to get her milk was the... More
