Good homemade food, reasonable prices and nice atmosphere

We came for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was quite busy, almost all tables had customers, but we were waited on and served quite quickly and efficiently. The wait staff, even though they were busy, took their time with us and served us graciously. The food was fantastic and the burgers... read more

The interior is not at all fancy, but the menu was interesting, inexpensive and (in our case) very tasty--two dinner entrees and one glass of wine for under $30 before tip. We would go again if we were in the Carrollton area.

So here is my experience of Down On Main last night. I love doing reviews of restaurants. LOL We went in and the place was pretty dead for a Sunday night especially with a UK game going on and the place also dubs itself as a "Sports Bar". Kind of sad when you can't get the Big Blue Nation into... More

Hubby and I celebrated his birthday here. Had very good steaks, nice size salad and wonderful white cheddar cheese and mac. Our best experience in small town dining. Good service and clean restrooms . If in this town again will definitely eat here.

The folks at the Hampton Inn recommended the Steaks...and so we went! Good Choice! Tues night is Steak night special! BIG, perfectly done and at a most reasonable price! Friday & Saturday is Prime Rib and Rib Eye. I think they switch around a little. But there is something for everyone. Service was fine, and our waitress was a sweet... More

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
