Wow! Found this place on this app. So happy! Delicious food, good portions and our server Tatiana was very knowledgeable. Can’t wait to go back. Menu items are well marked and modifications can be made to most items. The only negative is i had so many options it took me a bit to decide!

Stopped in driving between Richmond and DC. My kid has CD but loves getting the gf French Toast. Asked for allergy protocol and please clean grill prior to cooking and use clean spatula. Not sure if they did, but waitress claimed to have asked. Food was good. No issues with side effects or symptoms.

Ate here twice in the past 48 hours. Sons ordered gf french toast, one plain, one with caramel & powdered sugar and eggs/bacon on the side. Advised waitresses to treat as allergy and please clean the grill and use clean spatula. Food was great and sons have had no side effect/symptoms.

I wish I could recommend this diner, but my experience wasn’t great. I stressed that I needed my food to be gluten free and ordered the turkey platter. When it came out, I thought the bread didn’t look right. Glad I said something to the waiter, as they gave me the wrong bread. The staff were nice and apologetic, and they remade my plate. However, if I hadn’t noticed I would have gotten very sick. Food was good but not worth the risk. The Red Robin across the street felt much safer than this place. I’ll provide another updated review if I try this diner again. Only giving two stars because the staff was nice and the food was good.

Food was fine, I know the fries aren't gluten free but I didn't eat them they were in the same container I didn't feel any pain until the next day, I knew the pain all too well. I might eat here again as I never had problems in the past I just need to make sure not to get fries. I bought the BLT on gluten free bread, You know when they give you gluten free bread it has seeds in it and its a lot thinner than the regular bread so that's never been a concern of mines. This place does not have dedicated gluten free area. most places offering gluten free options rarely very rarely have a deliciated area. Celiac Disease varies, my sister is also a Celiac but she eats Popeyes chicken without a problem but when she eats regular bread she gets a stomach ache. Just because I reacted to the fries doesn't mean you will. The service was fine the people working their were nice and friendly. We got to go.

Updated 7/2021 Not celiac safe I’ve been glutened the last two meals. As mentioned, disappointed because I ate at the Springfield location for years with no issues.

Very cautiously I call this celiac friendly. The Springfield location does much better. Menu offers a lot of options, I love the omelettes and the fish is always great.

Three visits, staff knowledge of menu, gf options, and cross contamination varied widely. Once glutened, though I asked several times if the fries were gluten free, if they’re fried in their own fryer, stating I’m celiac, wheat will make me very sick. Fries came out and after the first bite, I thought coated in batter. Yup, they are. When I flagged her down and asked they said, oh, I thought you were just asking if they were in their own fryer. 😕

Unfortunately, it looks like Silver Diner has removed most of their gluten-free options from the menu. They do show gluten-free toast as a substitute but they are using same surfaces for pancakes and omelettes so cross contamination is a problem. Gluten-free is marked on the menu but there were very few items gluten-free other than the ala cart sides. Add that to the fact that someone thought jacking up the music volume was a a good idea and service was extremely slow. We decided to go elsewhere.

Ate breakfast and was disappointed that there are few GF options. And there isn’t a dedicated toaster and the home fries are deep fried. My basic omelette came with a small side of fruit. The coffee was good. And the waitress was attentive.

They seemed concerned enough about safety, when it came to gluten, but my actual meal (which we had delivered) wasn’t remotely similar to what I ordered. Fine if what I ordered wasn’t GF, but she could’ve told me that on the phone. Probably the worst meal I’ve had in years.

I was very impressed to find out that they have a separate toaster for GF toast. The server wasn't very knowledgeable, but she was happy to check with the kitchen when I asked questions. I had the avocado toast with eggs and it was really good! I decided not to try the GF pancakes because they are cooked on the same surface as other foods, but they do clean it off before making the GF pancakes. Given my good experience, I may try the pancakes in the future since it seems they do a good job of preventing CC.

Gluten free items on the menu but the staff is very I knowledgeable when it comes to gluten free. Ordered a burger in a gluten free bun, made sure to tell them it was a severe allergy and staff still proceeded to bring out French friends with my burger. Had to explain that they could not just take the fries off the plate, it had to be redone as they were cross contaminated.

The staff was very attentive and friendly. Many gluten free items on the menu but they are prepared along side of gluten containing items. They are very clear with their marking. As a Celiac, I probably shouldn’t have eaten there and heeded the warnings. I ordered all GF things but still managed to get cross contamination. Not their fault if they didn’t claim to be celiac friendly. And.... I also didn’t tell the waiter. They get 5 stars for their service and attentiveness.

Silver Diner has made great strides with their gluten free offerings and food handling protocols. A year ago, I became violently ill after eating some allegedly gf pancakes. Recently, I gave them another chance and the experience was wonderful. Waiter was knowledgeable, food was safe and delicious, and the menu has improved over all.

I wasn't in the mood to interrogate the server about all the kitchen's procedures to avoid cross-contact, so I just went with something listed GF that wouldn't need any substitutions: salmon on rice with veggies. It was pretty good, and I didn't have any reaction after.

I’d say some of the staff is knowledgeable about celiac, what is truly gf and about the issue of cross contamination. They really try and they listen. I’ve even had a couple conversations with the manager where she was very helpful and interested in how they were doing and what could help. I’ts good food and service. You will need to clearly communicate your needs not just rely on the gf menu listings. They have some tasty 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.

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.

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!!

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!
