Our Story

A part of American history since the 1870's, the term "diner" is a derivative of "dining car" and owes its distinctive appearance to the railroad dining cars from which they are patterned. At first, decommissioned railroad cars and trolleys were used because they were easy to transport. In time, manufacturers built prefabricated buildings with the look of a dining car.
The Main Street Diner is the late 1950’s, Master Diner. It was built in New Jersey, brought to Hempstead, Long Island, New York, and then shipped into town. This classic diner was then laid on a foundation with a brick façade along its front, and stainless steel gleaming from all around. Later, a backroom was attached to the diner, which was used as a storage room. In 2008, the diner was renovated, and this backroom became the kitchen where all the authentic American cooking is done today.
The Main Street Diner kept many of its original features, such as the beautiful terrazzo flooring, railroad car lighting and gleaming stainless steel inside and out. We have provided a comfortable setting for everyone who comes into the Diner. Every individual is treated like family. Extremely fast, friendly, courteous staff, and great food, as always.
We look forward to making your dining experience more enjoyable while still keeping the flavor of times past. Authentic American cuisine is our specialty. Enjoy your dining experience here at the Main Street Diner.

We came here for breakfast and ended up leaving very fulfilled with the experience. Our waiter was incredibly personable and treated his consumers like friends. Everyone in the diner knew each other and made the atmosphere welcoming.

OMG that's all I can say this is a throw back to the good old days when things were simpler The food is on point the eggs and biscuit's with the sausage gravy wow I don't know how he gets his eggs perfect if I could cook them like that at home.

Great vintage diner with a large menu and good food, the prices are reasonable. I LOVE Main St Diner! Food is delish! Service is always on point! And the history alone is the "cherry on top"!

Had the most delicious potato pancake platter-breakfast for lunch! The portion was huge and everything was cooked to perfection- especially the perfectly fried bacon—and the potato pancakes were delightful.
