The lamb burger was ok but the fish and chips was over cooked. The salads were fair as well. Restaurant is on a busy street with lots to check out nearby but parking was tricky.

We sat outside and had a pleasant dinner. The service was prompt and the waiter very friendly. The only reason I am not giving a 5 is the diner was out of beer on tap as their delivery had not arrived. The fish had a light crisp batter and was delicious. The French fries were fresh made and both were... More

We went to dinner here. The food was pretty good, and the price wasn't too bad. The staff was very friendly.

Stumbled upon the diner as we were looking for something different and where we could enjoy our meal by sitting outside. It was on the weekday, close to around 7:30, restaurant was not busy. We were greeted by a lovely server, directed to any table we wanted to sit at outside. We were brought menus quickly, orders were taken quickly(except... More

We should have been tipped off by the number of locals that were in for supper...the food and service were great. I was knocked out by the Caesar salad...or more so by the zesty homemade dressing! The chef actually had the courage to use anchovies, as she should have!!! Fabulous! My wife had the French Fry Nachos. Forget the poutine...this... More

We've eaten here in the past but left this morning without being seated due to the very unwelcoming person at the front desk. There were two people at the front desk and only one person at a back table when we arrived; one of the two went to the back when we approached and the other turned her back to... More

Had an amazing Mint Raspberry Mojito... FULL of mint they grow outside all around the patio area... fresh picked!! Shared a chowder, both of us had chicken wraps,... More

Found this restaurant on the main street in Nelson and went in to have dinner. Sort of a Greek cuisine, and I ordered the special which is a larger meal, however, it was at best just average, and the sliced lamb tasted just like roast beef to me, Coincidentally, I noticed another couple there, and next day met them at...

The Diner is a street front venue that serves great food.Our waiter provided comfortable and professional service. There is both in outdoor and outdoor seating. If patrons seating at the tables outdoors feel a chill there are blankets provided to keep them comfy.
