My husband and I have been to the Main Street Bistro and Ale House on six different occasions now and we have never had bad service, a long wait, and we have certainly never had bad food. The food has been exceptional. Their portions are a very good size, making the price a fair price, the food is made from... More

Several friends and I ate here on a Thursday night. The restaurant was mostly empty, as you might expect on an early weeknight evening. The waitress was friendly and seemed efficient, but it took over half an hour for us to get our food, even tho' we ordered various renditions of bratwurst! How long can a bratwurst take to prepare?... More

After hearing about the reopenining of this place I had to try it out. I will that the atmosphere and visual settings are asthetically pleasing. The three things I look for during any experience with a new place is, quality of hospitality, quality of service, speed accuracy and quality of the food. While between the host and server I had...

I had the opportunity to visit the re-opening of this establishment and I wish I hadn't. I know quite a few business owners and in the Las Cruces area and was told by some of them that the new owners were not competent and that the business would not last in Las Cruces. When I went to experience the business... More

On a recent visit, my husband and I waited to be seated while the young, male host took a very long time doing something behind the counter. He looked up and saw us but failed to acknowledge us with so much a nod. Finally he stepped out from behind the counter but stopped at two tables with diners to inquire... More

Hello MosstrooperGypsy--Your recent review of our business made me feel quite sad. The service you pointed out was clearly lacking and quite unprofessional. For that, we apologize. What made me sad was the implication that our neglect of you was because you are an inter-racial couple. I assure you that was not the case. We have an integrated (such an... More

I almost never send food back, but my burger was not cooked despite being ordered "medium." when I sent it back, the cook held it in the kitchen for 10 minutes but did nothing further to it, and it was redelivered to my table, still uncooked throughout. I didn't eat it. At no point did I get an apology or... More

I heard a radio ad that this restaurant made, and served, their own bratwurst, so we gave it a try. I had the chili-flavored bratwurst (their only choice that day), along with a salad for about $10.95 and my husband had the chicken salad for about the same price. The bratwurst may be like American bratwurst, but they are nothing... More

We decided to stop here for lunch on our way through town before hopping on the I-10 to start heading west toward home. It was a nice, refreshing stop. The food was great - we both had salads...a house salad and one that had chicken in it. Service was fast, which was appreciated as neither of us felt that great... More

This is a reinvention or at least new management/owners in the Same location, same name, same menu. So why expect anything different? Well some friends and I went there Friday 5/6/14 after the art ramble and before a show at LCCT. I had heard very different reviews and knew they were busy. That said, we waited quite a while before... More
