Main Street Bar & Grill is a large down-home restaurant serving diner type food. The breakfast menus provides a variety of options including omelets, benedicts, and pancakes. I enjoyed s simple "two-egg, hash brown, and toast" breakfast. My eggs (over medium) were done perfectly. My husband had bacon with his french toast and it was just barely done, so if you like crisp bacon, request it. Main Street Grill is located across the street from a park on the lake front and has a pleasant patio. It's not fancy, but the food and service were good.

Good local place for breakfast or dinner. Friendly servers, decent food, convenient parking & location. Lots of items on the menu, but nothing really great to recommend. The menu is typical American food, burgers, sandwiches, omelettes, pancakes.

I've eaten at Main Street a few times over the years and I have to say that it's really not that good. It's obvious that it's long survival in this town can be attributed to the simple lack of competition. There is just no where else to eat. People come here because of habit alone.

The food is over priced and a lot of times has little flavor. Their overly glorified chicken fried steak is nothing more than a very large, greasy, piece of gristle.... But as advertised, it is big. Their hash browns are interesting... Somehow they have managed to make a potato both liquid and solid at the same time. It's basically a goo like substance.

The staff can go either way really. There are a few that have been there for a very long time that are ok, but as I saw today some of the owners new additions should be let go immediately. When asking one of the staff for a menu, the reply was simply "not my job," then walks away.

It would be nice to recommend somewhere else but that's just not a choice. So if your forced to have to eat something, this is unfortunately just about the only choice.

The Grill was highly recommended by our host at Clearlake Cottages. We went there for breakfast and were not disappointed! The service was good and the food was of excellent quality.
Because it was a lovely day, we sat on the porch--not the greatest choice as there was lots of street noise, especially trucks and motorcycles driving through.
