Well Worth The Stop

Fortunately for us Gilford, CT was the first stop on a recent swing through New England. We only wanted a place to stay after the long train trip from DC to New Haven, and Gilford seemed a logical (if not glamorous) choice. We got to Gilford about 2:30 pm and stopped at the diner for a great bowl... read more

We used to go to this place all the time. Lately, it's just soooo bad. So bad. The food quality has declined so rapidly, portion sizes are smaller, menu has shrunk, and desserts are almost non-existent.

I give this restaurant an average marking ONLY because it was ridiculously expensive; even for breakfast. The food was good, service was good, but I won't be going back.

Most diners don't cater to those who want a more vegetarian lifestyle. Shoreline Diner has been doing it before it was popular. Food is good and fairly priced.

Is on an off the highway. A dated decour but who cares, it's a diner that had great servers and the breakfast was terrific. I had "REAL" corned beef hash and eggs and they great.

Very good service, traditional diner menu, prices seemed a bit high for the winter season, however. Food was good and cooked exactly as ordered.

Excellent service joined by great quality food. This is a very friendly diner environment with a large menu with plenty of options. The deserts are the best.

Tempeh Reuben. Homemade Wild Rice Cake. Homemade Malibu Veggie Burger. Fresh squeezed oj and delicious iced tea. Perfect french fries and milkshakes. Overpriced, yes. Overstaffed, yes. Clean, competent. A traditional diner with a additional vegetarian menu. Go there.
