We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor rating. We very much liked our salads and the restaurant so much that we returned the second day for lunch again. Staff did not seem very personal at all, but presented a good product.

I have eaten here many times and have enjoyed it each time. All menu items are delicious and the quality is high. The place is clean and prices reasonable. I highly recommend Main Course and I am a tough critic. You won't be disappointed.

Nicely surprised by the quality of the food. Several small rooms nicely decorated with small or large tables to share. You first choose your dishes at the counter, then you take it to your table. Informal but cozy

We were traveling to up state NY and didn't want the normal fast food for lunch. I found this great spot that serves farm to table, my favorite type of place. It's located a few minutes off of 87. They have a variety of food...More

I visited this restaurant about 5 times in 5 days during a training. The food is fresh and vegetarian friendly. The food is seasoned well and my friend said the chicken was awesome. This restaurant is casual and does not include table service. The line...More

Please excuse this delayed response! Yes! There are surely gluten free options on the menu...including a flourless chocolate torte (it you have room left for dessert!).
