The food was on the level of a sub-par diner. Believe it or not, that could have been forgiven had the staff been the least bit nice. They weren't: they were surly and rude and our presence seems to have been a big inconvenience. Unless you're a masochist, I'd avoid at all costs.

Great place to a dine with friends, it's a NO FRILLS kind of Resturant. There is plenty of seating inside, you get to pick where you sit. The prices are reasonable for the great quality of food that you get. So, who cares if you need to stand on line to order your food. The meal we had was delicious... More

Came to the Main Course for breakfast. There were several choices for Sunday brunch. We had the brooch bread french toast, huevous ranchero and spinach & salmon eggs benedict...all fresh and tasty. The indoor dining room was clean with nice seating and small outdoor deck offered a great mountain view.

Ate here on the recommendation of friends. Hard to pick one thing on the menu so we did combos, sandwich and soup. I had the lobster sandwich and New England clam chowder. My hubby had the flank steak sandwich and lentil soup. Apple mango tea for drinks. Everything was fresh and made to order. As I looked around at other... More

Main Course has a nice variety of classy sandwiches, salads, hot food, tea, fresh juices, desserts, & more. Every time I go, there's something new to try. I love that they put new spins on traditional food, so it's different from anywhere else in Ulster County. The best thing about Main Course are their prices; a sandwich with your choice... More

Some of the tastiest food I've ever eaten. I would seriously consider a 3 hour round trip just for take-out. And as my wife would tell you, I can be pretty critical when it comes to food and restaurants. We stopped here with our 1 year old on our way back to Albany. My only regret is that now that... More

We live close to Main Course so we go there often for lunch, dinner or snacks. It's delicious and they always have great specials to choose from. The food is from local farms and presentation is always top notch. We chose Main Course to cater my daughters wedding this past weekend, We are so glad we did! From our initial... More

When you enter there are clipboards with the menu and the days specials, you can select what you want then you go to the cashier. we did not see the clipboards at first and went to the counter, read the specials and...
