If you don't mind slow service, lack of attention to detail, servers that wear open toe shoes and incredibly inefficient coffee refills, this is your place! Oh, haven't even eaten yet. Really doesn't matter at this point.

We've eaten here twice. Once for breakfast, which was average. Second time for lunch, which was tasty but service was very slow.

My first visit was for a committee meeting. The place seems small from the outside, but it is arranged well and seats more than I expected. I had the half order of biscuits and gravy and it was a perfect breakfast. All of the breakfasts that were served around me looked delicious, and prices were reasonable.

Take yourself back to the 50's and 60's, cozy little restaurant. Great food and drinks. Decent prices.

I have mixed feelings about this place and probably wouldn't recommend if you can find Pendleton Coffee Bean open. It was a Sunday and, sadly, not much was open for breakfast. The food service was friendly but not quick. We waited for our food for over 40 mins and it didn't come out with our requests. I ordered a hash... More

A restaurant more interested in its 1950s ambiance than in food quality. A friend ordered eggs Benedict and the sauce was nowhere near Hollandaise ... a dark, speckled yellow with a hint of mustard. Both entrees were pretty greasy. Waitress was pleasant, but stingy with the coffee pot. I've had better at this place on other occasions ... both cook... More

Just what two travelers wanted---a good burger, served quickly in a hometown-friendly place with personality.

Just stopped for a quick break and found the Main Street Diner. It was decorated in 1950's style which was very cool. The place was clean and well run and great service. The staff were friendly. A great place to stop.
