Their variety of Spanokopita foods are very nice. The problem I had was too much pepper in the Caesar salad dressing, but this is a personal preference, I was disappointed that the dressing could not be obtained without the pepper. Service was fast and very friendly staff.

The Main Street Diner is nothing like a diner. It is a small, rectangular, high-ceilinged restaurant with a small bar on one wall. The menu has a strongly Greek flavor, and the Greek food is probably good, but we ordered fish and chips and - out of curiosity - French Fry Nachos. My wife liked the fish. My "Nachos" were... More

I remember this place from when I was a kid. I've been a few times with family as the kid menu is a pretty good deal and the atmosphere pretty casual. The wait staff is generally excellent and they really hit above expectation in service. The menu is quite varied with everything from a hot wing poutine (remarkably good) to... More

Went to see some friends while we were in the area, and wanted to stop for lunch. Service was super friendly and helpful, they immediately set us up with space for all 7 of us to sit. Appetizers were hummus and tzatziki with pita, I had a burger and my wife the buffalo chicken poutine. I am happy to report... More

Our friend isn't 19 and it was really nice to be able to sit down and have a (legal) drink while she was with us. Very much appreciated Main Street Diner. Our waitress was great and always kept those water cups filled. I would highly recommend the spanakopita. Will definitely come back here

Firstly, it's not really a diner at all... The food is predominantly Greek / Mediterranean as well as highly rated fish & chips. My partner and I both enjoyed our meals and the service was good. From the outside it looks a little quiet, especially during the day. But the food definitely makes up for the external appearances and slightly... More

Great service, large portions and excellent flavours from a large selection of healthy and not-so-healthy yummy options. I was really impressed, would recommend to others and would definitely go back!! I took my son and his girlfriend and they loved it too!

Just had lunch here yesterday, and the food was delicious. We go here for fish and chips, but the coleslaw was so yummy, that I wish I had doubled that order! The Main Street Diner has been a favourite of mine since my children were little, and now I take my grandchildren there. They have a children's menu, and coloring... More

We had both the soups (one was Manhattan clam) and the nacho fries. Nice and light for lunch. Friendly staff.
