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

This diner offers the normal "greasy spoon" diner options, along with an incredible vegetarian/vegan/gluten free menu. They offer organic meats, and have incredible espresso. We enjoy eating here and it is always a treat as the menu is quite a bit pricier than a traditional diner, however the food is very quality. The only item Ive even been unpleased with... More

Lots of options for every diet - including vegan and gluten free when such choices aren't always abundantly available. My husband had gluten free pasta and I indulged in the vegan French toast (which was a little too sweet as mentioned by another reviewer.) We also enjoyed vegan and gluten free cake for desert. This is the sister restaurant to... More

This is a great place to go when trying to satisfy multiple diets. Vegan and gluten-free items are available. My partner had the meatloaf and loved it. I had the vegan french toast, which was great, but next time I'd ask them to go light on the vanilla "cream" because it was very sweet.

My husband and I have eaten here a few times and always enjoyed the food as well as the very varied menu. Late this afternoon we stopped for an early diner and what struck us was the much smaller menu selection. When we placed our orders we were asked if we wanted to "upgrade" by adding soup or salad to... More
