This is by far my favorite restaurant in the area. I have been there many times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Great unique flavors in every dish. The staff there is very personable and Terri the owner is so committed to making every visit enjoyable. The newly redesigned interior is classic and refined. It always feels like a special occasion... More

Headed to Ligonier after visiting the Flight 93 National Memorial. Cute, small downtown built around a town center plaza called The Diamond. Used TripAdvisor for lunch suggestions and settled on The Kitchen on Main. Great choice! Outdoor and indoor seating available. Indoor seating provided the opportunity to watch the activity of the kitchen and restaurant. Interesting sandwich choices for lunch.... More

We sometimes stop there on our way to visit relatives or for breakfast before a trip to Idlewild amusement park. In fact we were there the first day they opened. We usually dine outside, but there is also seating inside. They have a unique selection of food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The Kitchen is easily the best restaurant in Ligonier and the surrounding area. Nothing else comes close. We have enjoyed excellent dinners repeatedly. You can bring your own wines in and the service including glassware is very well done. The menu is relatively creative. Unqualifiedly recommended... I suspect breakfast would also be worth experiencing. Of course, The Kitchen is not... More

We had just traveled 8 hours to get to Ligonier. I was looking forward to a relaxing evening and a good dinner. Weather was great so we got a table outside. A glass of wine would have been perfect but the waitress informed us they did not serve alcohol. Everyone else around us had a bottle of wine. It was... More

We have been to The Kitchen on Main 4 or 5 times and every time the food has been fabulous! Each time my husband and I have had different dishes (always dinner) and each time they have been delicious and nicely presented. The wait staff has been very personable also. They have been easy about changing things from the menu... More

All of us agreed the flavored iced tea was excellent. Staff let us stick around a bit after their normal hours since we were running late getting to town and kept our glasses full. Ribs were great, and fell off the bone. Burger was cooked to perfection. Warm potato salad was best side. Can't recommend the place enough and will... More
