Awesome place to bring out of town family. The new menu is amazingly delicious! I don’t eat meat and went for the pasta with the incredible (vegan) Italian sausage. Probably the best vegan dish I’ve had in a restaurant!! I let my meat-loving parent try and they were blown away. My mom kept doubting that it was vegan — in fact, she said next time she’s in town she plans to get that dish! Silver continues to impress!!

Our reservation was for 5:30 PM so it was on rushed. I’m trying to keep to my vegetarian diet which I was able to do and my wife enjoyed a delicious crab cake which she shared with me. Great location

Third of forth time @ Silver. It was a slow night and service was bad. The waiter was nice but seemed totally out to lunch. Took 4-ever. Also, the meatloaf portion was ridiculously small.

Eat here weekly! First time our server got my order wrong. When I pointed out what was incorrect he said I did t communicate to him properly. He didn’t apologize, he didn’t offer to make it correctly and he certainly didn’t remove it from my check.
I’ll keeo going back but hope to never have that waiter again

We sat outside on a beautiful day. Our server was outstanding - knowledgable about the menu, warm and efficient. She left us to talk without interruption.

Really poor service and didn't capture my Open Table attendance to boot. I think this Silver Diner chain is going down hill. Would have preferred a Founding Farmers restaurant instead.

There is a wide variety of food and the six of us each had a different plate. We all loved our food; our waiters were attentive and helpful. We finished with Boozy shakes. All good!

Service was spotty. Nice waiter but mediocre service. Took close to 10 minutes for someone to take our order. I ordered coffee and friend ordered cappuccino. Only cappuccino arrived. Had to ask for coffee AFTER food was served (because we never saw the waiter again). On the bright side, we did not feel rushed at all, which we appreciated. Great location, decent breakfast menu, needs improvement in service.

We were seated but no one came to take a drink order for 10 minutes (we had to go to the desk to ask for someone to come take our order).
My son ordered his steak medium rare but it was not pink at all. It was more like well done.
Nothing about this place or the food made me want to ever return.

The waiter asked numerous times if we were done while we were clearly still eating. He then vanished at dessert time.

I have had many very nice meals here. I was looking forward to returning after having been away for the summer. What a disappointment! The menu changed, and none of my favorite dishes were on it. The service was strange. I think we’ve had this waiter before. Our order was correct and timely, but he seemed to lack basic training. He leaned both hands on the table, stuck his thumb too far into the bowl while serving the food, asked if I was ready to order while I was still very clearly reading the menu. The restaurant is still too loud, even though there weren’t very many people in it.

It was our first visit and we truly enjoyed it. The food was great, affordable and the serving size appropriate. It was a beautiful cool summer evening so we ate outside and enjoyed people watching as well. We will definitely be back.

We came out for brunch with my son and his girlfriend and our food was totally messed up. They gave our food to another table and then had to recook all of it. We waited over 30+ minutes after we ordered to get our breakfast. We saw that they allowed the other table to keep our food. I get it, honest mistakes happen but when it does happen; make it a priority to fix. Additionally, it wasn’t until we had paid our FULL CHECK that the manager came by to say sorry. Gave us a coupon for an appetizer if we decide to come back. Well think about it but definitely not on our top places to go right now!!!

It was really good food as always, only downside was the air conditioning was broken and it was a little warm for comfort. But that is a fixable issue.

Wonderful food for brunch. Eggs wonderful; side dishes cooked perfectly. Best potatoes I've ever had.

On the less than great side: The server did not come to check on our food or refill coffee and water. We had to call on a manager to get attention (and did get it). One of our companions has hearing problems, and this restaurant has no quiet corners. We asked for a quiet table or location and learned there isn't any.

Delicious meal at a convenient location! Highly recommend always the brussel sprouts & grain bowls. Our server was a little slow/spacy but I think she might have been new and was still getting the hang of things. Whatever may have been lacking there was more than made up for by the food!

Silver's menu includes many interesting vegetable options -- like a delicious roasted cauliflower steak. It's so good to have more choices for those of us who are not vegetarian but who want more than the stale vegetable sides at the typical restaurant.

Asked for the Mayo “on the side” for my burger. Burger brought to the table with chipotle mayo on side, but both sides of bun slathered in regular mayo. Second burger was prepared properly, and it had new fresh hot fries...that was thoughtful.

Napkins are horrendously linty. Clothes had to be laundered to get rid of lint. Either get less linty napkins, or black ones.

We were seated for 10 min without anyone from the wait staff or hosts visiting our table. The restaurant was not busy. Our attempts to ask for help from servers as they walked by and looked away from us were unsuccessful. We’ll never return.

I have been going to Silver since it opened. It used to be one could depend on getting decent food and service almost any time of day. The past several visits have been a disappointment. On the last visit my meal (Huevos Rancheros) showed up lukewarm and without cheese, my drink never arrived, my companion's dish also lacked an item, and a request for dressing went unheeded. Although the restaurant was not particularly busy, the waiter was seldom seen and the turn around time in the kitchen was very slow. Both of us decided that it is time to take our business elsewhere.

This was my first time at Silver, and I’m glad I checked them out. The arrived was very good. The server was very attentive to and understanding of my dietary needs (gluten sensitivity) and the requests of my friends who dined with me. The brunch cocktails were great and the food was satisfying and tasty. I will be back.

Our second time eating at Silver and as expected the food was delicious. The service, however, left much to be desired.
