Own your table for the night, as is done in Europe. You're entering a time-warp, so leave impatience outside. And dine with superb quality food and kind, willing staff. Top-notch food-October means German specialities and if you lie Roulade and red cabbage and pastries from The Old World...look no further. Flaws include a minimum of meat in some soups and... More

My wife and I have been here many times, and it's always excellent. They serve high quality, European (German/Swiss) food that is plated very well. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic, and there is always something new on the menu. They roll a dessert cart around to your table after dinner, but I would recommend ordering either the Crème Brulee... More

This restaurant is popular with the locals but not so for us. It was very noisy inside and we found it hard to converse. The schnitzels were OK, the fries tasted as though they had been cooked long before and kept heated. The desserts looked very unappealing with paper stuck to the sides of the sliced cakes to stop them... More

Found this in AAA Book. It was just a stop on 1000 miles route. And it was great. A touch of 'old Europe". My sis who lives in Europe and just visited Austria a month ago, admitted the food was perfect. Thou (our -0.5 points) too salty. there is a little mix of not only Austrian/German bur french cuisine as... More

I started the meal with a bowl of lentil/Bacon soup. the flavor was incredible. For the main course I enjoyed the Dijon crusted lamb; it was outstanding. For desert, the fresh fruit tort was suggested, it was an excellent suggestion. It wasn't overly sweet, the fresh fruit really came out. It was all in all a very good meal. I'd... More

For those of you that haven't recently been to Main Street Eatery, you are missing out on some wonderful dishes, including their Oktoberfest menu! The restaurant's atmosphere is sophisticated, but at the the same time, family friendly. Did I mention service? Main Street has an exceptional staff, that literally understands your needs before you do. Kudos to Urs and Michelle... More

I've eaten at Main Street Eatery many times since it opened. For me, it is more of a special occasion spot because the price point is a little higher than my usual weeknight out meal. Yes, it is a place with atmosphere and ambience. The food is generally very good. I was extremely disappointed in the mussels that were a... More

We stepped into this place just by chance. It was awesome. My hubby said the best salad he ever had. Everyone's dinner was very good, also the desserts, YUM. Also our server was very friendly and knowledgable. We will definitely be back.

We went on a Monday evening for dinner because the menu looked a bit different and reviews were good. I started with an appetiser of rabbit liver (I did say it was different) which came with a creamy onion sauce and was delicious. Then I had a beef stroganoff and my wife had Wiener schnitzel which were both very good.... More

Wow!! Main Street Eatery is amazing... The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world. My boyfriend ordered the New York strip and I ordered the meatloaf... Both meals were absolutely mind blowing, packed with flavor and zest! All and all, this place is one of the best in all Lynchburg! Thank you for making our birthday... More
