I recently returned to Down on Mainstreet after visiting the Estuarium. We were seated inside. I ordered grilled shrimp on rice and that came with a side salad. The shrimp was very good. The portions were on the small side. Service was good. The prices were reasonable too.

It's been a while since we last ate here, but as remembered, the food is excellent as well as the portions. Service was excellent and down to earth. Would definitely recommend

I ordered the daily lunch special for $5.99 which included iced tea. My friend ordered a sandwich that didn't include a beverage. I chose to drink water and my friend drank the 1 glass of tea. When the bill came, my friend was charged $1.99 for tea and the waitress stated that was their policy. I asked to speak to the manager who refused to remove the $1.99 charge. Obviously $1.99 is more important than repeat customers or positive reviews. I'll take my business elsewhere in Washington where "trading"a free beverage with a friend is welcomed.

The food this day was also subpar. Popcorn shrimp was a small serving that was minimally fried. Coleslaw was drenched in what tasted like store bought dressing. Sweet potato fries were plentiful and tasty.

My wife and I were looking for a place for lunch and saw that this place seemed to have quite a few locals eating there, so we decided to give it a try. The place was full but we only waited about five minutes for a seat. My wife had the crab cake burger with sweet potato fries and I had the house salad. Only a short wait to get our food, and it was quite good. The crab cake burger was tasty, as were the sweet potato fries. I had expected to get a small dish of a salad but was surprised at how big the salad was. Everything was fresh and crisp.

We would definitely return.

Went with a large group on a Saturday night and the service was excellent. The food was great...fresh and not greasy! Great price for top shelf booze with a heavy pour!
