The place is called as Mortakka and there hardly are any restaurants in the town. You'll get tea and snacks outside the station and nothing else. For food travel either towards Omkareshwar or towards Sanawad.
There is a very expensive, unaffordable REWA RESORTS, located around 700 meters from the station click here Google also tells me that there is a GOPAL MIDWAY near this station(I am not sure how far) which offers meals and snacks. click here

The station is, in fact, the closest one to the town of Omkareshwar which is famous for its Jyotirling. Exit from the main entrance of the station and walk for around 200 metres towards Sanawad side. You'll find shared autorickshaws for Omkareshwar. The shared magic is overly crammed with 16 people and won't move until its fully packed. The 12km journey thus becomes a nightmare of sorts. Also under the pressure of these auto-rickshaw drivers, the buses don't pick passengers so one is forced to travel by these. The journey costs... more...
Rs 25 to the main town and Rs 20 to Bus stand which is outside the town.
Feb 16 2018 (16:53) You will get Buses/Sharing Auto to Omkareshwar I also recommend to have the parikrama of this island, better time to start is morning 5:00 AM - 5:30 AM in summer and as per your choice in winter
Alight here for Omkareshawar and Mamaleshwar Jyotirling. You will get Buses/Sharing Auto to Omkareshwar. Bus will drop you at Omkareshwar bus stand and you have to take auto from there. Also you can hire auto direct from Station to the main town. . There are two main temples of Lord Shiva here, one to Omkareshwar located in the island and one to Amareshwar/Mamaleshwar located on the south bank of Narmada River on the mainland. Omkareshwar Temple is situated on an island thought to have a symbolic shape of devotional letter ॐ .... more...
. I also recommend to have the parikrama of this island, better time to start is morning 5:00 AM - 5:30 AM in summer and as per your choice in winter. It will take approx 2 - 3 hours to complete. During this parikrama you can see the Sangam Ghat (River Narmada divides in two part after Dam and meets at this point), can take holy bath there (separate place for female is also there on the other side) and many other natural attractions. If I explain my all experiences here then it will take a lot of lines and you will get bored. Better is to have own experience. . About lodging:- There are lot of Hotels and Dharamshala's in Omkareshwar mainland to stay and as I searched during my visit it will fits in every ones pocket. I recommend to reach Omkareshwar in day time so that you can search for your budget price stay there. . About Food:- Tea / Coffee / Snacks / Thali almost every thing is available and again I will say it will fit in every ones pocket. As I can remember we have taken Thali for Rs 50 and it is delicious in taste having 4 chapatis,seasonable veg,Dal with rice. I can not forget to mention Madhya Pradesh's famous morning breakfast Poha and Jalebi. Its all for the day.
