They've been around for a while and keep getting better. Typical diner fare--priced right and overflowing plates. Great omelets. Skip the corned beef hash/

The menu looks good, but the food is only okay. It has quite a reputation, but I'm not sure why. I've given the place several chances, but I've never been impressed with a single item I've eaten.

Curious why a lot of shoreline town's restaurants get compared to NYC. Anyway, this a a fairly pricey place that gives you nothing special. Food was average at best; we had 5 people of which 2 were vegans. Very basic selections and a bit limited due to the inclusion of vegan selections. Service was okay...had to wait for several things... More

Had a wonderful Irish Eggs Benedict. The hash was obviously homemade, not at all salty as happens so often. The hollandaise also very good ,and even though I could not have room for the home fries, they were also excellent. Will definitely go again.

Coming from New York my taste buds are probably spoiled and accustomed to quality diner cuisine. So, keeping that in perspective, I would rate shoreline diner as average but imagine many around here will rate as above average. The only similarity to NY diner experience are the prices! I find there are many restaurants that are more on the bland... More

There are a multitude of diners in the shoreline area. This one by far is the highest priced. The food is average at best, and the prices are too high.

We have eaten here several times this summer. They serve breakfast all day but have lots of great lunch and dinner items as well. They also have a great gluten free menu which we needed as a family member has celiac disease. The service was friendly and courteous and I am sure we will return in the future.

Good healthy options on the menu, food was fresh and delivered in a timely fashion, wait staff very good service, however, my partner discovered a piece of a zip tie in her salad and the manager gave her the salad for free.

The parking lot was packed and we thought it would be a long wait at 10am. Nope! Got right in and we're seated at a comfy booth. Service was great. Food was fresh, hot and all made from scratch - corned beef, the English muffins, the bread. Coffee was HOT but good, not the typical diner coffee flavored water. Excellent... More
