Good little hole in the wall place

We went here because I read good reviews online. It is a little place that's only open until 2:00. My husband got sweet potato pancakes, which he said were very good. He also got sausage patties, which appeared to be hand pressed. I got a BLT and it was good. I also got cole slaw, which... read more

My husband is from Indiana and is always talking about breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches. Since we were passing through town I searched for restaurants serving these sandwiches. The main street diner was conveniently located so we decided to stop in. The outside of the building was not the best but we decided to go for it. We were so glad... More

We had breakfast in this small diner while visiting family in Richmond. The eggs and omelets were delicious and the biscuits homemade quality. Service was fast and friendly with a never ending cup of coffee. A great place for breakfast or lunch.

We like local places with some history and character so the Main Street Diner seemed like the place. When we arrived the booths were full, but 2 had dishes from the previous diners that had left. The guy behind the counter said to have a seat and he would clean the table off. Took him about 5 minutes to get... More

Relatively limited hours but a great and cozy place to grab brunch. Definitely order the potatoes with your breakfast.

Prices are reasonable, has a cozy atmosphere, with very friendly staff and it's all you would expect from a mom and pop diner! I highly recommend it.

I highly recommend the Main Street Diner for its food (I had their delicious sweet potato pancakes), atmosphere, service, and prices--they got each of these necessary and sufficient factors for considering eating there Right!

For years, this was Alsop's Grill. Often, there was a sign in the window for short order cook. I figured I'd be able to work there because I was short and I could cook. My parents and I never ventured into the place, nor did we go to Elizabeth Parker's a few doors down. Times change and Elizabeth Parker's is... More

We tried to eat here. After arriving and walking around the side of the building we see a sign that says "under new management" and they now close at 2:00pm, it was 2:30. Wish we had known they have such short hours.

Neat, small (very) classic dinner, a bar and several booths. Food was wonderful, I had huge open face roast beef manhattan -delicious and tried their homemade banana nut bread - scrumptious. New local owners are very friendly and attentive.
