Wanted a little Greek, so ordered the chicken souvlaki. Pretty standard - nothing bad, but not extraordinary. The tzatziki sauce was better than average. Service was great. If you want the basics, this is a place to get it. I'd go back.

We've been to this location a few times and find it to be a place you can count on for good service and good food. Thanks Mary.

I'm slowly working my way through all the restaurants and bars on Main Street and when the room mate and I couldn't be bothered cooking we headed here. The building is pretty cool, its big and airy plus it was a hot day so they had all the big windows open. Service was friendly and fast, I had the special... More

The Main has the best calamari I have ever eaten. It is large tender pieces with a light crispy batter. The burger is really good too. The portion sizes are generous. The lamb souvlaki is really tender and the greek salad has large pieces of vegetables. The soups are made from scratch and the small bowl is big enough for... More

We had our choice of tables on a Sunday afternoon but kept away from the open windows as there was quite a breeze. (Even so our service totes were blowing about.) Service was prompt and politely impersonal. Food was good, but not great. Reasonable prices for smallish portions.

Lately we have visited some of the restaurants along Main Street. Last week we stopped in at The Main for lunch. The name itself gives no indication that this restaurant specializes in Greek food. Lunch during the week offers the standard Greek fare. Both of us had a small serving of soup, my wife the Bean soup and I the... More

A group of 5 of us stumbled upon this restaurant last Friday after unsuccessfully finding anywhere to eat without a two hours wait on Main street. Although it has a pub feel, the menu is very greek, with lots of traditional dishes to choose from. For appetizers, my colleagues enjoyed the calamari and spanakopita very much. I ordered the lamb...

We enjoyed our meal here with the reduced price pitcher on Monday evening. Great atmosphere and the service was friendly. Straightforward order of burger and ribs which were tasty and in sensible portions. Recommended.

Four of us met for dinner at The Main. We had a good recommendation for it and decided to try. Unfortunately, we came away a little disappointed. The lamb was over-cooked, and the service was slow. The one thing that really bothered us was the music was way too loud and made having a conversation quite difficult. Not the best... More
