Best Burgers in town

I have to say that this restaurant had one of the best burgers I've had in a long time. The lamb special they had that day was very good too. Supporting food like the fries and salad where great too. The staff was flat out great.

We took a day trip to Nelson and found a wonderful place to eat! The Main Street Diner is small and comfortable and a very wide selection on their menu. Sandwiches, salads and Greek food too. I had the 2 piece halibut fish and chips and only order this one if you are HUNGRY! Ample food and fish made right... More

Really enjoyed our dinner here. They have an outstanding selection of Greek foods as well as non-Greek choices. Most items made on site. We tried their hummus - so delicious. Simple things like coleslaw is actually prepared and marinated on site. They have a lovely street patio and the service was great. Will make a point of returning when visiting... More

We had an excellent meal of lamb, Greek salad, and wrap that was mouthwatering. Lawrence our waiter was friendly and provided great service, as well as being funny. We enjoyed wine and some great conversation. We will be back.

Every chance we get when travelling through Nelson we stop by The Diner. Great streetside atmosphere. Friendly service. Great food. Nelson is kinda eclectic so dinner on the patio puts you amidst the mix. Always good value and a street show free. We'll be back.

The restaurant is not fancy at all but the food and service is oh so good. Large portions of wonderful food and staff are friendly with good prices. They have a patio for those that like to eat out side. A great little restaurant that we would highly recommend.

Had a few cold beers and some burgers here for lunch. Patio in the sun, and quick service. The Athenian burger was delicious and the tzatziki was a nice touch. I would eat recommend this place to friends.
