Whenever we come to Cambria we always stop at Main Street Grill for the trip tip sandwich. It is tender, juicy and delicious. Good for families with young children as there is a lot of room inside and a lot if noise and activity. There are 3 to 4 TVs on the wall 3 with different sports, and one was... More

We have a good dinner here. The four of us shared the Tri tip, The Pig (pulled pork), hot dog and basket of fries. It was plenty of food! The portions are generous! Be prepared they only take cash. Food was good and the barbeque sauce tasted great with the meat. A nice place to stop and eat inside or... More

This is an okay grill, and the only one in Cambria. Food is cooked after you order it, so no McDonald's-style crap here. A good choice for lunch. Expansive patio is nice if the weather is good.

We stopped in here for ' old times sake' since we used to eat here whenever we visited Cambria. It's expanded to a huge Main street enclosed restaurant from a small walk up, unenclosed space. We had the tri tip sandwich, The Pig ( BBQ pulled pork sandwich) and shared a small order of fries. Wow. We could only each... More

We were staying in Cambria overnight and needed to find someplace to eat that wasn't too expensive. This place fit the bill and the food was very good. A large eating area so even with a lot of people there it didn't seem crowded. Just good eats at a good price

One of the reasons we love coming to Cambria was a visit to Main Street Grill. We always had the fried shrimp which came with 6 medium shrimp with a basket of fries for around $11.00 dollars. Not cheap but we were fans of the batter on the shrimp which was light and not a heavy cornmeal. This last visit... More

This is our 2nd time eating at this establishment. The food is decent but overpriced. $3.50 for a small basket of onion rings, I think there were 6-7 pieces! Service is fast. The place is always crowded. Most important, make sure to bring cash as this place does not accept credit cards.

Very busy place! Right of main street of this quaint little town. Outdoor seating with street view for people watching. Fast/bar food type menu but delicious. Full bar available as well. Come with CASH...that's all they take here.

You order from the counter and pay. Then wait until your number is called and go get your food. Large place. A lot of people there so it must be popular with the locals. I got fish and chips and it was great.
