We visited this diner in July 2011 when it was called Equinox Diner. It was overpriced but exceptional food and service. On our recent visit to the Mystic area we made a point to eat there again. Supper last evening, Breakfast this morning. I asked for a burger minus the BBQ sauce. I got the BBQ sauce anyway. We ordered the garlic parmesan fries we had loved so much before. They were not cooked all the way, there was barely any garlic and the parmesan was just sitting on top of them. Burgers were good though.
For Breakfast this morning, I ordered the much anticipated Hawaiin french toast I had fallen in love with on our last visit. I requested they use egg beaters for the batter instead of eggs but was later told the batter was already made and they couldn't do it with egg beaters. REALLY???!! Anyway, menu CLEARLY states that it is Pineapple bread, TOASTED coconuts, macadamia nuts and bananas. What I got was regular bread which was NOT cooked in the middle, NO pineapple whatsoever, NO macadamia nuts and UNtoasted shredded coconut. The ONLY thing they had right was the banana. I was EXTREMELY disappointed but didn't even bother complaining to the waitress. We will definitely NOT be going back there again. They have gone extremely downhill. It is one thing to not prepare something the way it should be. It is another thing completely when 3 of 4 ingredients aren't even included!!!! SHAME on them for passing THAT off as Hawaiin anything!!
They are still very much overpriced but this time it wasn't even worth it.
