We stopped for lunch at Main Street Cafe on a Sunday. The restaurant and bar are clean and attractive, we sat outdoors on their deck under the umbrellas which was very nice. Server was fast, friendly and attentive. Food, while not bad, did not impress either. I had a burger with grilled onions and onion rings, both the grilled onions... More

I will definitely go back again!! My whole family enjoyed their meals. We ordered the crab Leg appetizer and it was very good. I ordered the fried green Tomato BLT and it was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had!! My husband ordered the Patty Melt and loved it and our sons ordered the Flounder Wrap and they thoroughly...

We were seated quickly in the bar area to be able to enjoy half off appetizers and drink specials. We sampled Buffalo shrimp, calamari and fried green tomatoes. Our fish and shrimp wraps with potato chips were tasty. The only recommendation I could give is to throw a few more chips on the plates. :) My kids enjoyed their sandwiches... More

Had lunch here soon after arriving. A very nice café with a wide variety of food to choose from in a casual setting. A number of locals choose this place for lunch and often meet their friends here for lunch together. Very friendly atmosphere.

This place continues to be one of our favorites. Daily specials for lunch and an interesting selection of beers. They feature a different draft beer each week so you get a chance to try new options. Cyndi continues to be an outstanding server.

Went here on a whim and we were not disappointed at all. All the food was amazing. All you can eat crab legs!!! Service was outstanding. Didn't have to wait more than a couple minutes for more crab legs and drinks never approached empty.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on a Sunday about 11. Breakfast menus were posted, and I didn't really want breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised that they were serving breakfast and lunch. My wife and I both ended up ordering the same meal. We started with she-crab soup and had a gyro. Both were very good. We would... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad we were able to accommodate your lunch craving during brunch time.

They food was good and the service was excellent. My daughter is a light eater and wanted to eat off the kids menu (even though she is way older than 10). The server found a way to get her only what she wanted and didn't charge us for a full entrée.
