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.

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...More

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!

It was very quiet when we went there; only a few patrons in the diner. Yet the hostess wanted to plant us in a dark corner near the kitchen; we had to ask for a different location. The service was slow, and when the food...More

The menu is confusing....all over the place. The pastrami nightmare was a nightmare....one piece of unappetizing pastrami, raw onion and tomatoes (?). And yellow mustard....really? Get some Gulden's please. Sandwiches were small, fries were big. And it took 10 minutes to find a wait staff...More
