I bring visiting friends here and they love the burgers. My friends and I go to Main St a few times a month. We love sitting at the bar especially when they cook the burgers right there. But, they have not been doing that lately and not sure why. The men bartenders are friendlier than the woman. The men give... More

The menu is just what you need. There is something for everyone while maintaining a realistic menu.The service, the food, and drinks are all very good and reasonably priced. This is another of those restaurants where you DON'T have to wait for your server if you need something. Any of the servers will respond to your needs. This is a... More

There's no mistake when you enter this place: it is a bar! However, the menu is ambitious, and its promise of a well prepared meal is carried out. There's a large dining section suitable for families, and they welcome young children.

This is a kind of local bar and grill. The bar is always busy with a "Cheers" like atmosphere. Most people there know most people there. The food is pretty good but the burgers are excellent. On weekends you have to enjoy noise or else go during the week. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Food pretty much worth... More

My wife and I have eaten at Main Street over a dozen times in the last couple years. The food has always been good, and the service is generally good as well. Last night we had the Reuben Egg rolls as an appetizer and they were really good. Will order the next time we go. My wife had her stand-by... More

Have driven by this place many times. Finally tried it tonite, and will not be back. Upon walking in, greeted and served drinks right away. It was not crowded for a Tuesday nite. The decor is run down, and definitely in need of a thorough cleaning and updating. The condiment baskets were filthy, the bar behind the counter which had... More

Nothing fancy ... Basically a bar with a decent sized restaurant attached. The burgers here are the absolute best ! If you go on a Wednesday they are two for one. Service is sometimes slow but it's worth the wait.

I've driven by this restaurant for over a decade & just tried it for the first time. I wasn't disappointed. There's a great selection on the menu: from burgers to seafood entrees & plenty of good appetizers, all at a reasonable price. The "lodgey" feel inside is nice also. The staff were also very friendly and the waitress very attentive.... More
