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.

Great salmon dinner with broccoli rabe and substituted brown rice for angel hair pasta. Service was friendly and waitress stayed on top of everything. My party shared cheesecake for desert and they said it was out of this world. Prices were very reasonable, will definitely eat here again when we are in the area.

This was the first visit and stopped for breakfast on a weekday. Was immediately seated and given a menu which offers breakfast lunch and dinner choices. The menu was a little unusual in that items weren't listed like a typical menu making it a little difficult to read. There were several non-traditional breakfast items on the breakfast menu showing some ethnic diversity . The prices are very reasonable. Chose a traditional breakfast with one egg, ham, toast and home fried potatoes for $5.25 making the total check with tax and Ice-T under $9. The food arrived hot, plentiful, and well prepared. My server was attentive and efficient. This restaurant is a diner and looks very little like the Parthenon. It seems more like an old-fashioned diner with a lunch counter, boothes, and a bakery. It is clean and seems to be very efficiently managed.

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!

I have been going there for about 6 years....no complaints. Our family love the waiter, Harry, the grandkids love him and he always remembers what our "likes" are. J
