good food, music and lots of sports TV around the restaurant... :) Lots of parking and the staff are nice polite and quick on getting the food to the table as well as checking on whether you need additional services

Haven't been here in a few years, a little has changed. There are more TVs but mainly prices are up, quite a bit! There is nothing to distinguish Main Event from a slew of similar sports bars but prices. The only reasonable items are the burgers and prices are a little high. Service, food and atmosphere is average at best.... More

The main event is a great place to gather with friends for lunch or dinner. Always a fun time, plenty of parking. Easy location and great service. Plenty of screens to watch your favorite team.

This is often a place where friends and I meet for lunch. The garden salad topped with grilled salmon is relatively guilt free and quite satisfying. It is often, surprisingly, not too busy so we have no trouble hearing each other. This is really a sports bar with many, many tv screens showing a variety of games which we are... More

They are one of the few restaurants that can make mojitos! They grow their own mint! What a novel idea!! So refreshing on a hot summer day!
