Our dinner visit to The Main Event was very pleasant. The menu offered a nice selection, the food was good and service was very good. Since the early May flooding, very few restaurants in the area are open but this would be a good choice...More

Very good place to eat. The waitress was sweet and honest on what she preferred. Very clean. The food isn't fancy but it's well cooked.
