Ballston Silver Diner looking to open its doors this summer

The new Silver Diner in Ballston is planning to open its doors this June, a company spokesperson tells ARLnow.

Signs and stickers advertising the regional chain’s summer opening are now on the windows of 750 N. Glebe Road, near the intersection with Wilson Blvd.

First announced in 2017, the 6,700- square-foot restaurant will join Target (which opened in the summer of 2020) and Enterprise Rent-A-Car on the ground floor of the recently-built Waycroft apartment building.

In July of this year, the Arlington County Board approved the restaurant’s two-part application requesting approval to install lighted architecture features and operate a sidewalk café, which is expected to be 961 square feet with 68 seats.

Silver Diner “anticipates operating the restaurant 24 hours a day… [but] to limit the operation of the outdoor café to 2 a.m,” notes a county staff report.

A company spokesperson confirmed to ARLnow that plans remain the same from when the restaurant first submitted the application to the county over the summer.

When the Ballston location opens next year, there will be two Silver Diners within about a mile of one another.

The one in Clarendon on Wilson Blvd remains in operation, though both the Silver Diner and the Lot beer garden are expected to be replaced at some point by new development that’s currently planned as a 224-room hotel and a 286-unit residential building. The redevelopment is part of raft of development plans that could significantly change Clarendon.
