Very good diner food at reasonable pricing. From the eggs to the fish special and dessert of home made Baklava all was great. Very attentive service and the owner does come around to talk to you.

The Parthenon Diner was the first place we had breakfast in Old Saybrook. It is your basic diner fare with some healthy choices, which made it worth the visit for me. The Sweet Potato Hash was good along with eggs. I would eat here again.

A great diner with lots of choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great soups, sandwiches, and entrees. Clean and very kid friendly. Everything is delicious- save room for dessert! Great cheesecake and assorted pies. There are weekly specials and wine pairings too!
