My experience is that in small towns the food is less than good. My friend and I spent the weekend in this quaint little town and for our night out went in search of a "nicer" dining establishment. We initially intended to go to another restaurant, but since it was closed we ended up here. The food actually was good.... More

We ate there after finding out the Welchs Riverfront restaurant had a sad looking buffet and no alcohol. The food at Down On Main was Ok and reasonably priced. The service was friendly but slow, one of the servers couldn't get a sitter, so they were short handed, but not very busy when we got there. No view of the... More

Very low quality bar food - not much flavor and didn't even look appealing. Staff was decent but never refilled our drinks. We went on a Saturday evening and they weren't very busy.

We like to get off of the interstate sometimes and try a local place. We found this restaurant open (the only one it town open on Sunday evening). It had a small town sports bar/cafe look. Nice and clean inside. About half-full, though the waitress thought they were swamped. Service was very friendly but it took a while for the... More

Down on Main has good food & service! The portion sizes are quite large and you can share! The fried green tomatoes are awesome! I've never had a bad experience here. This is a family restaurant, but there is a bar in the back if you just want to come in and grab a drink with your buddies. There is... More

We were impressed with the report quality/price of this place. We had sea food and were fully satisfied. Waitress was new on the job but was very efficient.

A friend had heard about Down On Main so we wanted to give it a try. It was difficult to find parking. Once inside, we were seated immediately, but then proceeded to wait 10 min before someone asked if we had been waited on. Once we ordered (hamburger, ham sandwich, and grilled cheese) it took another 35 min. There were... More

This is a sports bar/restaurant with lots of seating in the restaurant and a few tv's in the separate bar area. 10 minutes from the interstate if you are staying in one of the hotels there. We were looking for something other than fast food and found this place on TripAdvisor. When we got there, the kitchen was closed (it... More

My family is from this part of KY so I try to visit as much as I can. My cousin & I had lunch here during my last visit. The food was fine ( I had a chicken sandwich, he had a cheeseburger), and the sevice was good.

staying in a small town, sometimes makes it very had to find a place eat that has good food. I usually check out tripadisor first. I found this place and it wasn't that far from the hotel. It was very nice, lots of people eating there and the food was very good. Hubby had the prime rib and I had... More
