Just had lunch here yesterday, and the food was delicious. We go here for fish and chips, but the coleslaw was so yummy, that I wish I had doubled that order! The Main Street Diner has been a favourite of mine since my children were little, and now I take my grandchildren there. They have a children's menu, and coloring... More

We had both the soups (one was Manhattan clam) and the nacho fries. Nice and light for lunch. Friendly staff.

Came here for lunch, the server was very nice, attentive . I ordered the calamari and Cesar salad. The calamari was cooked perfectly. The Cesar salad was way too overdressed. I informed the server and she fixed the problem . After that the Cesar salad was delicious and I definitely enjoyed the fact that it was a bit spicy .... More

We had no idea what to expect when we entered the restaurant. We just chose one while we were walking around, and kind of figured it would have typical "Diner Food". What we ate was delicious and definitely not diner food! My husband had lamb and I had a cheese and ham melt on pita bread. Both meals were absolutely... More

This is a great place to enjoy a delicious lunch. It's first impression is misleading but a great place for a variety of options. Great lunch options, superb fries, and delicious, homemade coleslaw.

The best oatmeal and granola we've ever tasted. I would go back to Nelson just for the granola. Heaven!

The Diner has been a stable choice for many years for us. We recently had a meal there after an absence of more than a year. Both menu choices the fish and chips and a greek plate were prepared to perfection. Despite the crowd the service was friendly and efficient. We'll keep coming back.
