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

We were disappointed in our dinner. The food was just ok. I ordered a turkey burger- not flavorful at all. I husband ordered a chicken and pasta dish - he said it was ok. Our daughter was happy with her grill cheese sandwich and chicken noodle soup. The service was good.

Last week, I stayed at the Comfort Inn (across the street from the diner) and needed a quick place to grab breakfast. So, I chose the Shoreline Diner. I did not have to wait for a table and was seated quickly. The breakfast menu was large and included a wide variety of items, ranging from eggs to breakfast sandwiches to... More
