I found the food here to be average, kind of pricey for what it is. The service is not quick either. They have a good selection of typical American entrees and appetizers, but the environment is not that much greater than your average Denny's.

I've been to this place a couple of times. I like the atmosphere inside.

A dish usually costs around 10 to 15 dollars. Nothing unpredictable from a diner. I order their sandwiches, which are pretty good. I also had their clam chowder, which I thought was pretty good too. The chicken quesadillas aren't bad either. I think those were around $9, but you had to pay for extra toppings like guacamole and sour cream.

This place has the best waffles ever!!! All the food I have gotten here has been above-average, but the waffles and the banana bread are ridiculous.

If you are there later at night, they have a full bar and make cocktails. I haven't tried one, I admit, but they look pretty good. I think a chocolate martini with banana bread on the side could pretty much fulfill anyone's late night cravings.

PROS: WAFFLES
CONS:

This place has excellent service, the waiters are very polite and friendly. When I go here I expect to spend around $10-$15 including tip/tax for a plate. I usually order the fish and chips which are soo good!

The Diner at Main was one of the most pleasant dining experiences I have had in the year '05! After driving around aimlessly on a late Friday night I fell upon this Alhambrian diner. I walked in not knowing what to expect. I took a huge gamble coming in here, as one of my favorite restaurants was just a few blocks down the street. Thankfully the risk paid off. As my expectations were met ten fold. I order the grilled chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies. My oh my!!! The first bite began with a proposal, the last bite ended with culinary matrimony, as my tongue consomated the meat in a tango of digestive love! The server was also quite pleasant. But for some reason he persisted that I ordered a drink. No biggy, he had the right intentions.

The thing with Main Street is it wants to be Old Pasadena but it doesn't know how. Diner On Main was no expectation. My friends and I decided to try it out because it was new. It has the right "diner" look but there is no warmth. The service was downright unexcusable. Hire some professionals and not rude amateurs. For the average price, we paid too much for this bland, tasteless meals. I do not recommend this diner's pie. It tasted store-bought. Their salad and sandwiches should be avoided. Head over to Norm's or Carrows's... they know how to make a real "diner meal."

Pros: On Main Street, Nice exterior, Average prices

Cons: , Bland food, Not worth the price

Editorial from

An old-fashioned diner has been transformed into an updated, retro-but-contemporary cousin, operated by the folks behind South Pasadena's Wild Thyme and Shakers. This modern edition has a long counter, comfy booths, images of '50s icons…
