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

Seems like The Main is a great place for beer and live entertainment but not a place to have good eats. We had calamari appetizer which was overcooked and over battered followed by an awful lamb wrap with hardly enough lamb to fill the pocket with cold oily fries and undercooked chorizo penne. Server was on her own running the... More

Popped in on a sunny Sunday afternoon for lunch after reading the menu posted outside only to discover that they were serving only a limited Brunch menu until 3pm. We both decided upon the Club sandwich and were pleasantly suprised, especially by the thickness of the grilled chicken breast. We sat by an open window and it was really quite... More

I lived in the area of the restaurant for four years now and decided to visit on a Sunday afternoon. Normally when I pass by it is closed. The meal I had, and the meal my wife had were excellent! I had a steak dinner that I have to say was very tasty. In fact I even asked where the... More
