Not quite as good as it was previously

We like this restaurant because it has always provided several options for vegetarians. Now most of the options are vegan, but a large proportion are sandwiches. I highly recommend the butternut squash soup. Note that the menu is the same as Georgie's Diner in West Haven.

Expected the food to be more unique (since it's a vegetarian enclave).. It was just ok. The service was a little slow. My date was not amused by this. WE will not be going back for a long time.

We went excited for great food at a fair price and ended up empty handed. The food was salty, greasy and boring. It was way to expensive for what we received. Don't do it not worth it!

We stayed in the hotel across the street, so simply walked over for dinner. The menu was creative with a lot of choices, including many vegetarian choices. They had a full bar, so I ordered a cosmo. It was so good, I had two. Our waitress, Julie, was friendly and nice to talk to--like visiting a friend. Definitely will go... More

This diner is easy enough to get to...close to I-95 and other businesses. It's a pretty good size and is clean. The wait staff is less than enthusiastic to say the least. The food is average and typical diner food. The prices are too high for what you get. You can get food at least as good for half the... More

The Shoreline Diner has been up and running for almost 30 years, so something must be going right. We go there often for weekend breakfast. Most of the waitresses have been there for years. They are patient, kind and intelligent. They listen and anticipate your needs. Funny how that's expected - and delivered - in diners, but so rarely in... More

I usually associate with cheap/value food. This diner was NOT cheap at $17+ for an entree! They do have takeout, and the selection of meals is good. It only includes one side with a meal, and no bread,I am used to getting two sides PLUS bread at $17+ for a meal in a restaurant. you cn take the family here,... 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. Sometimes the food is still OK, but more often than not, it's really disappointing. It's almost like the owner/managers just walked away and left... More
