BIG plate of calamari and salad! As good as any Greek restaurant I've visited. May go back and try something different next time.

It was a very busy time we went for lunch but the service was fast and very friendly. The food was very tasty and reasonable prices.

In Nelson, a number of restaurants have pushed their sidewalk dining out into the street on covered raised platform patios. The Main Street Diner is one of these and it presents a very pleasant venue to pause for a casual lunch. Their menu is filled with Greek selections. I selected the spanakopita from the appetizer menu with tzaztiki dip. It... More

We stopped here for lunch on a beautiful summer day; we heard they had great burgers and the food did not disappoint. We were a group of 6 - four adults and two teens. Our waitress was very friendly and came quickly with our drinks and took our order - everything from Greek wraps, vegetarian pita, burgers, calamari - we... More

Bland basic place with 5 star prices. Not worth it at all. I have really tried to like this place and have finally decided to never go back.

We ate at this restaurant at least 4 times during the month we were in Nelson and other areas in British Columbia, July 2014. I'm fond of Greek food (that's well prepared) and this diner did not disappoint me. Husband enjoyed the fish and chips--light and crispy batter. Of course, I enjoyed the Spanakopita, leg of lamb, and fresh salads.... More

We have stopped in here for years, just for the fish and chips. Every time I go back I am disappointed by the meal. Fish seams to get more soggy with grease every time, to a point where a single cut with a knife & fork produces a gush of greasy oil. I leave and say I will not go... More

Every time I go to Nelson, I eat at Main Street. Like sitting outside in the road and watching people pass by. Food is wonderful even if the portions are small. Service fast and friendly and a good choice of Beer. Fish and chips are my first choice at this Restaurant.

Nelson brims with good places to eat and this is a good choice for a quick tasty meal. We enjoyed the spanakopita and the fish & chips. Both the pastry and fish batter were light and crispy. The staff were friendly and kept the ice water coming on a hot summer's evening.
