Yummy to the max

The food is reasonable, big serving and really good. I tried their clam chowder, Asian salad ang chicken sandwich. . . . It's really delicious but you need to bring cash.

Got the beef and pork rib combo with garlic bread and bbq beans for $18 or so. Garlic bread decent, beans decent with mystery meat in there (should tell you before hand as some people are allergic to pork etc) Plenty of meat on the bones (2 beef, 4 pork) but I wasn't thrilled by the taste. Not bad, just... More

Driving down Main Street in Cambria you will certainly know when you are close to the Main Street Grill - the smell of barbecue is out of this world. They have a good number of items on their menu and I seem to always come back to the ABC (avacado, bacon and cheese) burger. Yummy! Add one of their HUGE... More

If you are after a quick basic meal, then this is a great option. Food was good quality and good value. Great for a large group or family. Certainly not an intimate restaurant, but good for what you pay for.

Have just had lunch here with friends. Awkward atmosphere, dirty all around, no taste in designing the place. Food quality low-med, hopefully not food poisoned. Terrible service, worst than Mcdonald tbh. Have so much potential, needs Chef Ramsey!

Haven't been here since they first opened and oh did I enjoy the food. Ribs were tender and flavorful. The clam chowder was yummy, beans were meaty, garlic bread was light and delish. Caesar salad was simple, service was friendly. BBQ sauce is really sweet it was perfect for the ribs but I didn't enjoy it on chicken. Fish N... More

The food was really good, great prices and friendly staff. We were there in the low season and it was a bit difficult to find places open at night. So glad to find Main Street Grill open and even happier to get a great meal.

We enjoyed stopping here for lunch after visiting the elephant seals. In our party, we tried the Tri-Tip sandwiches, chicken strips, and french fries. All were absolutely delicious! There was plenty of seating for our party of 14, which was great too. The only surprising thing was they are cash only, so make sure you have cash on hand! But... More

We are locals and have eaten here many times over the years because you could count on good value in fast food for your dollar. Recently we received an order that included onion rings, which had 5 total only and 3 were only 1 inch in diameter. My husband questioned the portion size and was told that ownership now wants...

Lots of good food for a fair price. We travel through Cambria for the fantastic boardwalk and ocean experience. This is our favorite "restaurant" because as a traveler you can walk in all wrinkled up from travel and fit right in. You order at the counter from a good selection posted on the wall, get your number and quite quickly... More
