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.

I've been passing south on I-95 for awhile seeing an option for vegetarians. I figured it couldn't hurt to check this place out. I enjoy healthy foods and the catering lifestyle for vegetarians and vegans alike. It wasn't at all busy in here (the outside of many cars near the restaurant is misleading). I was greeted by the host who... More

The Shoreline Diner is conveniently located off of Exit 59, I-95 in Guilford, CT. We've eaten there many times and have had better meals than our last. My wife had waffles which were average. I had eggs with corned beef hash and homefries. The hash and homefries seemed somewhat greasy. Better choices from the past have been the gyros and... More

This place is first and foremost a diner, so don't expect gourmet food. That said, if you are traveling on the New England Thruway and need to eat, there is no better place to stop than this excellent diner. They use healthy ingredients and the servings are massive (not a real blessing on a long car trip). The chicken pot... More

thought we would give this place a try...don't...girl seating us was not too happy that we did not like the table she brought us to (right by the door - cold air every time someone opened the door) so I asked if we could switch. the look she gave us could have won an award for rudeness. the diner was...

Traveling along I-95 through Connecticut leaves you with very few good Vegitarian places to eat. Exit 59 9Goose Hill Road) Guilford is the place to stop and have a very good meal. Organic Eggs served anytime anyway. Soups,simple plates to home made specialties. Everytime I stop I am grateful there is such a place with an easy off easy on... More

You expect diner food and you get it but the service and food quality are excellent. I would say that if you enjoy diners, you will love this one.... Plus they have grits! Just add salt, pepper and butter!

I have been to this diner many times and enjoyed the food. The fries, burgers, chicken dishes and coffee were above average. But during our the most recent visit the fries were poor (frozen, not fresh hand cut) and the chicken souvlaki was oily and bland. Waitress service is usually good here but the woman at the cash register seemed... More

I ordered the butternut squash lasagne, never missed the red sauce or meat. The flavor was off the hook. So much to eat I had to take half with me. Wanted to try dessert but no room for it. Darian was so polite, she even helped us find our hotel and to get back on the expressway. If ever in... More
