Had to leave without being served. Restaurant was almost empty, but still waited over 45 minutes for breakfast. It seemed the cook prepared one dish at a time. We had allowed an hour and half for breakfast before our Pendleton Underground Tour. Obviously not enough time for this very small diner! Meals were coming out about every 30 minutes or... More

Had breakfast at Main Street Diner...it was Delicious! It is a small diner decorated in 50's style. And the food is delicious! I had the Pancake combo...two cakes, two eggs and bacon. I splurged and went for the blueberry pancakes...the pancakes are huge and awesome...the combo was only $10. No I'm not lying...$10!! And you will not leave hungry. The... More

After a bad dinner experience it was great to have a really great family meal!!! Breakfast here was the best!!! Service was superb, and the atmosphere was funny and inviting. Each of our meals were served hot, fast and full of flavor. We were able to walk here from our hotel and the walk back was full of great family... More

Only open for breakfast/lunch and it's a great little place to grab some good food. Would recommend going during the week when business is a little slower, as the service is a little understaffed/slow. But the food definitely makes up for it!

If you don't mind slow service, lack of attention to detail, servers that wear open toe shoes and incredibly inefficient coffee refills, this is your place! Oh, haven't even eaten yet. Really doesn't matter at this point.

We've eaten here twice. Once for breakfast, which was average. Second time for lunch, which was tasty but service was very slow.

My first visit was for a committee meeting. The place seems small from the outside, but it is arranged well and seats more than I expected. I had the half order of biscuits and gravy and it was a perfect breakfast. All of the breakfasts that were served around me looked delicious, and prices were reasonable.

Take yourself back to the 50's and 60's, cozy little restaurant. Great food and drinks. Decent prices.

I have mixed feelings about this place and probably wouldn't recommend if you can find Pendleton Coffee Bean open. It was a Sunday and, sadly, not much was open for breakfast. The food service was friendly but not quick. We waited for our food for over 40 mins and it didn't come out with our requests. I ordered a hash... More

A restaurant more interested in its 1950s ambiance than in food quality. A friend ordered eggs Benedict and the sauce was nowhere near Hollandaise ... a dark, speckled yellow with a hint of mustard. Both entrees were pretty greasy. Waitress was pleasant, but stingy with the coffee pot. I've had better at this place on other occasions ... both cook... More

Description
Our building is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1896, the exposed brick walls and tall, open storefront add charm and color to this quaint and rustic building. The building is part of the Pendleton Historic self-guided tour as well as on the route of the Pendleton Underground tour. It was restored to original condition in 2003.
