Now the Mannotick Gastropub, this place is a new find for me. Beautiful old historic house on Main St, lovely ambiance, beautifully decorated. Service was very prompt and the waiter was personable and pleasant. Food was awesome. Loved the dumplings, fish tacos were delicious and the hamburger platter with homemade potato salad and goat cheese puck was superb. Loved the... More

We have been regular customers since they opened, and we were looking forward to seeing the changes. We were not disappointed! We like the decor changes and the new menu. All four of us had the ribs last evening. Wow, the meat just fell off the bones, very tender and tasty. New expanded wine list with 5oz and 9 oz... More

We were quickly shown to our table, and we did not have reservations. The menu has good selection and a lot of "fresh" foods. The bar tender is a hoot, she is so cute, they should bottle her!!.

We always take my aunt to dinner for her birthday during Dickinson Days. Nice to see the parade and finish with fireworks. Makes it a special evening for my aunt. I had the table d'hote on the Friday night. The calamari was fantastic, best I have ever had, tasty but not chewy. Next I had the pork in honey mustard... More

We have been patrons of the Main Street Cellar since it opened. Kim and Paul are always all smiles and the staff is phenomenal! We would have given it a 5 stars rating if it wasn't for the fact that their tenderloin, one of our favorites had been taken off the menu. I agree with the previous review in terms... More

Dear ElleD1970 Thank you for your review. I have also sent you a private message. The tenderloin is back. We were running into supply issues with our "AAA" and we made the decision to remove it instead of offering a subpar product to our customers. It seems that this has backfired on me, as I am receiving poor reviews because... More

My husband and I discovered Main St. Cellar over 4 years ago at Taste of Barrhaven. We have enjoyed many Wednesday Date nights and going for dinner on Sundays with our own bottle of wine with no corking fee. We have gotten to know the servers and Ryan. The staff is always fantastic! In the past 4 years we have... More

Dear Trip Advisor Member Thanks for your review. We have had some changes lately, as we have a new chef who is bringing us some amazing and exciting dishes. In regards to the tenderloin, we were running into a supply issue and we found the "AAA" quality was lacking. So we made the decision to pull the tenderloin off, instead... More

First time visit for us. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. In comparison to other places we've been, the patio was secluded, pleasant and relaxing. It wasn't a cheap night but I felt we got good value for what we'd paid for. I think a second visit to Main Street Cellar is in the cards for sure.

The atmosphere is quite nice and the service was far above par. Now the food...In ordered the filet mignon and it was very good. It could have used a sauce, possibly peppercorn or blue cheese but never the less it was great. As an appetizer I tried the croquettes which were very nice. Mild but very delicious taste. I also...
