A friend told up that we had to stop here for the fish and chips. He was right! Some of the best (husband says THE best) fish and chips we have ever had. Great friendly service, generous cocktails and a friendly street-side patio. A must-visit.

The Main Street Diner is nothing like a diner. It is a small, rectangular, high-ceilinged restaurant with a small bar on one wall. The menu has a strongly Greek flavor, and the Greek food is probably good, but we ordered fish and chips and -...More
