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.

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

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 of soup;... More

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.
