We ate lunch here during a recent stay in Pendleton. The restaurant is decorated with fun 1950s memorabilia, the service was good, and prices were cheap. We ordered salads, which in all fairness diners usually aren't known for - it was decent but nothing spectacular.

Enjoyed taking my kids to a "real" diner in downtown Pendleton. Had a great lunch and shared memories of a bygone era. The food was good, and price was OK. Portions are good sized.

Excellent food, friendly service. Hometown style. Waitress remembers return customers and usually has their drinks on table before they even sit down

I've only been to the Main street Diner once. It was very popular with locals - crowded. I didn't see anything exceptional and I thought the prices were a hair high.
