We visited Nelson to see family and they took us to Main Street Diner. We both had the fish and chips (You can substitute halibut for an additional charge). The food was delicious and the servers were friendly and professional. We sat inside, but there are also tables out on the street. Highly recommended.

On a last- minute whim we decided to head to Nelson, BC for a Labor Day getaway from Spokane, WA. What a great lakeside town with loads of restaurant options. After walking the length of Baker Street and querying a few locals for recommendations for "good food, casual atmosphere, decent menu and reasonably priced" we ended up at the Main Street Diner and concluded that the recommendations were spot on. The portions were more than generous, the service adequate, and the bill reasonable, especially for a resort-town meal. We will definitely be back and bring appetites suitable for one of their Greek dinner offerings.

The food was ok at best. Grilled ham and cheese was a bit greasy and the bread was slightly burned. Hamburgers were ok, nothing special. The service was quick and very friendly. The fries were terrific though. Very convenient location.

We stopped by recently for a late lunch/early dinner. The burger was great, and the chicken sandwich was even better....BUT the real star was the fries! I would go back just to order the fries as a meal.
We also had great service, and entertainment was provided by the local pigeons who kept coming into the restaurant despite being shooed away numerous times by both staff and customers.
Do yourself a favor.....have a meal here.
