Phood on Main will be closing their doors at the end of 2013. Per our local paper, The Press Enterprise, the owners are focusing on making, marketing and distributing their booming spices line. Sometime in 2014 another local wine bar & restaurant may take over the location.

My husband and I have been here a few times and have not been disappointed. We tend to come here for lunch, so we can't speak for the dinner menu... but everything tastes super fresh and the service very friendly. Recommend it highly.

This restaurant has the worst service. We asked for the check repeatedly, almost walked out without paying but would have felt bad so I went in search of our server. 20 minutes later I found the server and asked for the check, this was after 30 minutes of asking in the first place. We had somewhere else to be and... More

To be honest, I thought by the name of the place was a fancy Vietnamese restaurant...you know Pho.... but it wasn't. The prime location of this restaurant gives the illusion that everyone that is anyone needs to go here. The decor is clean crisp, mid century. The bakery case is full of delightful creations. I don't tend to eat dessert... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner since we were staying at a nearby hotel. My wife ordered pot roast. The large pieces of meat plus potatoes and vegetables came submerged in liquid and were served in a high bowl. Two problems: First, The meat needed to be cut, but it was impossible to do so because of the... More

We were visiting town for the Festival of Lights and a local recommended this place. Start by saying the decor looked like they hit a yard sale with the center piece being two outdated old couches jammed up against what was the former front doors. Our server had serious ADD. She highly recommended the beef stew which we both ordered.... More

We had a delightful dinner here last night. We had several different items off the menu. The size of the portions were just right, not to big and not too small. Our server , Mallory, was the best. She helped to make for a very enjoyable evening. We have dined her before and will surely return I the near future.... More

We've been going to Phood on Main for the past four years for lunches and dinners and it's always been a treat. We don't even mind jury duty, as the restaurant is within walking distance of the courthouses and provides a welcome respite from jury duty. Phood is a locally-owned business, with partners Lyn Cloninger handling details with class and... More
