I usually avoid this place as it is way expensive and mediocre cooking...But you never know, might get better. Nope..Still super expensive and very mediocre..French fries today as usual were overcooked in fishy tasting oil, with 3 different kinds on plate, most looking like 'ends' and oversalted. Just crap, bad cooking......Fish on a different plate was overcooked, overbattered, kinda dry... More

Whenever I'm in the mood for fish and chips, I automatically think of "Main Street Diner"! My two girlfriends and I went for, not only catching up with each other, also knowing we would get a good meal for a good price, as well as good service, and that's exactly what happened. We all ordered the same meal and were... More

This was my go to spot for lunch for years, I always ordered the Britania Fish & Chips, but the last 2 times I have been up this year were utter disappointments. Oily, doughy, soggy. New recipe? New management? Sadly, I will now go else where

Lunch today: another great one. I've been a customer at the Diner for almost 30 years. There must be a reason I keep coming back, as Nelson has many excellent restaurants. (I go to them too, but I always return to the Diner for comfort food). The place is busy, which tells you something. The service is friendly and fast... More

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

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.
