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...

I dined at Main Course in New Paltz for the first time today. They have menus on little clipboards so that you can leisurely pick out your meal, snack. I think this is great, because I hate that neck craning that I end up doing at some order-at-the-counter places. There is real silverware, and a little station for fresh water.... More

Great service (because there is none), you order at the counter and pick up your own food, which is fresh, and always delicious. Wholesome, healthy food, sometimes comfort food, but amazing. Their brunches and desserts are especially good.

They feature 3-4 main dishes, samples of which are displayed behind the counter to help you decide what to order! They also make salads and sandwiches, baked goods, soups,... More
