I had a chicken salad sandwich here with fries and some ice tea. My mother had a sandwich too. The prices were not great, nor the service, not the choices - not awful, it seemed clean enough, but nothing jumped out for which to recommend this place

If you need to find a decent venue to have a good meal at an affordable price, look no more than the Shoreline Diner in Guilford, CT off Exit 59 of I95. It's an easy on/easy off and the diner menu is extensive including breakfast anytime. Service was attentive and efficient- parking is very convenient- access back to I95 is... More

But otherwise expensive and nothing special. We had eggs n hash. Service was nice. Place was clean. Coffee fresh. Diners are the best anyhow aren't they?

Not pretentious. But we had two pretty good salads. Mine was a Cobb (but chicken was extra, so I went without). Instead of the chicken, there was a nice amount of freshly made bacon on the top. Good lettuce, OK tomatoes, good avocado, though I would have liked more. Balsamic vinaigrette on the side was a good choice. My wife... More

Mystic was mobbed, and the trip was becoming interminable. We saw the sign on I95 and am glad we did. We didn't have anything extraordinary, since our trip was almost complete, but the chicken sandwich was good and my salad was fine. It was 5 o'clock somewhere, and my drink was very good. Service was excellent. I will add this... More

A little high in their prices for the breakfast we ordered, but the food was delicious. Service was pleasant but wait time for the food was slow.

I went here after reviewing it on TripAdvisor and I assumed based on the decent reviews it would be pretty good. It most definitely was not. I'll start with the positives. It looks like a diner, neat atmosphere. Plenty of parking. Waitress was attentive and friendly. But since it is a restaurant I place a heavy emphasis on the food... More

After working late, I was driving home hungry and saw a billboard along I-95 that advertised a vegetarian Diner with gluten free fare. I was in and pulled off the Guildford exit; it is an easy off ramp and equally easy to continue my journey home. The Shoreline Diner and Vegetarian Enclave looks like any regular diner, with neon signage,... More

I stopped by this diner recently on a weekday at approximately 3:30 p.m. I was seated quickly and a server came by within 6-7 minutes. I ordered a roast beef sandwich with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion. It was delicious! They also offer other standard diner fare as well as vegetarian and vegan entrees too.

You say vegetarian and I'm there!! I ordered a veggie burger and fries but was really not overly impressed. Good eating for sure but the prices were way, way, way! too high for the diner ambiance they have going there. If you are in the area, or are hungry when you pass the sign on the highway, stop on by... More
