So good! Several items are automatically served gluten free, such as the French toast and pancakes. Love silver diner!!

Though I usually do low carb, the omelette so here are not GF! Apparently they add batter to them. But treated myself to tummy GF coconut/quinoa pancakes. One star off for adulterating the omelettes!

I am egg, dairy (cow), soy, gluten intolerant. Silver Diner is farm to fork offering locally sourced ingredients. I was so happy to find the diner (breakfast). I fully expected to eat only a bowl of fruit or salad as usual. The facility was spotless, The employees friendly and professional and patient with my requests.

Got an omelette and asked to replace the biscuit and toast with gluten free toast and they said that wasn't an issue at all. The food was decent, I felt fine after and they even forgot to charge me the extra dollar for the gluten free toast. I will definitely be back again.

Very limited gluten-free choice and the one breakfast choice was beyond awful.

The menu is confusing. Items that can be made gf are marked, but you have to figure out their system. There is no dedicated fryer, but there is a dedicated toaster. Don’t think they have much experience with the toaster since one side of the bread was burnt black. Not enough choices to risk it. Guessing, Cross-contamination is pretty much a definite. When the waitress thinks Oreo’s are gf, then red flags go up.

This is not the old Silver Diner - new “farm to table” menu with gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan options. I particularly like that they have 9.99 lunch specials M-F. Asian brown rice bowl with sole is a favorite.

I have celiac disease and have eaten here three times. First I got the seasonal shrimp and watermelon salad. Great stuff. The other two times I ate a burger with a gluten free bun. I ate the fries too. I did not get sick but I did not ask if there was a dedicated fryer for the fries so be cautious if you are extremely sensitive. I will definitely be back to try the beyond meat burger and other entrees. This place is always hopping so don't be surprised if the waitstaff is swiftly busting their ass. Lol!!

Not impressed with the selection. It’s not like a real diner either. I had the gluten free caramel French toast. It was good but so overpriced overall.

I ordered a vegan dish (rice and veggies) thinking it might be a safer choice, given that there are few gluten free items available. I let the wait staff know about my need to avoid gluten and talked a bit about cross contamination, but several hours later I realize gluten was definitely in my food. I do not recommend this restaurant if you have celiac or are sensitive to gluten. Unfortunately I don’t think the staff is trained at all for food allergies, other than to possibly alert the chef.

Menu well marked for GF and looks like a lot of choices - including substitute GF bun or GF bread. No sickness afterward. We had the awesome vegetarian chili, which was just a little spicy but not so much to be detracting, and shared an order of lamb meatballs, which were nicely spiced, nice texture and served on a bed of wilted spinach. The soup states GF without crackers and we added, for a price, GF bread which came perfectly toasted and was very good bread. The Silver Diner is accessible to the A, B and C concourses but not to D or E. Pity since we usually fly on Delta out of the D but just happened to be on Southwest this time. Good but I don't think we'd go through security twice for it!

The staff isn’t very knowledgeable about celiac or what is truly gf or cross contamination. However, they have gf items on the menu and if you are clear with the servers about your needs they are great about making sure you have your food as you need it. I’ve eaten here a number of times—never got sick or felt bad afterwards.

Food is so delicious that we went back 2 days in a row! Lots of gf options and vegan too. Lots of healthier options. They even have organic ketchup! The avocado toast on gf bread was amazing! My kids loved it too!

Good in theory, dangerous if you have the wrong person. I kept asking if my to-go order was GF. I asked for veggies with my burger. It came out with fries and a regular bun. Despite repeating several times that I am allergic to gluten, she didn’t seem to care.

Giving a 5 star simply because it is in the airport and there are slim pickings, especially at breakfast! I ordered two eggs with a side of bacon to go and the staff was very knowledgeable. I did not get sick and it was really nice to have something to eat that early in the morning

It’s not often you find a diner that is so gluten-friendly! They have a great GF menu, even gluten free French toast! I had the quinoa coconut pancakes with a side of bacon and a scrambled egg and had no issues. Everything was delicious and the diner itself is neat!

Great food and good service. The waiter knew what celiac disease was, and the manager (who was gluten intolerant) came out to talk to me to let me know their gf practices. They do not have a separate kitchen, but they will wipe down the grill and do glove changes. I was told that they have a dedicated toaster.

Incredible burgers and very flexible menu options. Can't eat the fries (due to a shared fryer) but the veggies were very good.

By far easiest gluten free dining experience I have had in an airport that’s more than a salad. Gluten free buns and sandwich bread. Even French toast. Food was delicious.

My sister and I ate her when we were stuck at the airport for an extra two and a half hours. We found the server to be very knowledgeable about precautions. They clean the grill/griddle, change gloves, and the toast has its own toaster. The GF bread was quite good. I gave fewer stars because our server forgot my sister's shake entirely and our meal came out missing toppings. I'd eat here again as I didn't get sick from the food.

They have gluten free buns for their awesome hamburgers!! I had a side salad instead of fries. I am sure their kitchen is not a gluten free environment so I made sure to take my Gluten cutter pill before I ate (to help in cross contamination issues). You can get those at CVS!

This diner was a great find! So many gf options. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and checked on an item she wasn’t sure about. Our group of 4 are all gluten intolerant and had no issues afterward. I had the turkey platter and the rest had burgers on gf buns.

My daughter's and I had a great experience at Silver Diner in Waldorf. Great atmosphere, great staff. Only downside is there fryer is shared so no fries to go with our burgers. We had side salads instead which were tasty.

I didn’t felt safe -staff wasn’t knowledgeable of gluten free diet/items on menu. I was told to look for gf on the menu. Children’s menu gf choices- gf spaghetti and lamb meatballs (no information if they were gf), quinoa pancakes, and grilled cheese sandwich. Adult had very few choices with gf by it. I had to ask if they could make my daughter, 9, a gf cheese hamburger from adult menu - it wasn’t marked as gf item. I was told that a gluten free bun cost extra. Order came cheese wasn’t on the hamburger, my barbecue sauce for Barbque burger was missing - I asked for it to on the side, and daughter’s requested mayonnaise was missing. They never came to offer refills, if we needed anything, or ask if we wanted dessert. I had to flag down the waiter to get my bill. The restaurant was at quick pace but not “bust”.

The quality of food & service has gone downhill. We go to this diner every time we're in the area. This time the servers acted like they didn't have a clue. The food just wasn't as good this time. Yes they had some gluten free options but it wasn't very good. I was disappointed.

Went in for breakfast early on Sunday morning. Ordered a GF breakfast and asked them to please do an allergy alert or whatever was needed to ensure GF. Within an hour, I was very sick. This was serious cross contamination and put me down for over a day. I have eaten at other SD locations without an issue but we definitely will never be back to the Woodbridge store.

Our waiter was knowledgeable about basic gf but for the tougher questions he was willing and did ask his manager any questions we had. We had the warm roasted local veggie salad and the philly steak omelet. Both were great. We also tried the brownie decadence dessert which was amazing!! The brownie had a nice flavor and texture and was loaded with ice cream, whipped cream, hot fudge, caramel, and two cherries on top. The only reason I didn’t give this 5 stars was the menu was a bit confusing. Some things were labeled gf, some things stated ‘do this —— to make it gf’, but some things, like basic fruit, weren’t labeled at all while other basic things were. Most of our questions stemmed from not understanding the menu labeling and whether or not things were gf. Our waiter was able to clarify our questions but it shouldn’t be that difficult. Overall we were very satisfied with our food and my boyfriend didn’t get sick so win-win!
