While visiting Hilton Head, we had dinner at Main Street Cafe & Pub. One person in our party had Fish and Chips Tilapia filets breaded and fried, served with french fries and coleslaw They could only give an average review. The fried fish was a little greasy.

I love coming into Main Street. At least 2-3 times a month (minimum) I stop in and have a late lunch or dinner there. The staff is always friendly and takes the time to learn my favorite items on the menu, and makes suggestions according to past orders. In a place that is well known for its tourism offerings, it's... More

The place was packed on a recent Friday night with obvious non-tourists. We chose Main Street Cafe based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were pleasantly greeted and seated right away in a large dining room. However, it took several minutes for the server to take our drink order. Several minutes later our drinks arrived. After several more minutes, I flagged... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I spent the weekend mulling around how to respond to this review and the best I can come up with is "deserved". We were completely under staffed for the volume we did. I personally extend my deepest apology for your experience. I am not going to make excuses for what... More

I love coming into this place!! It is just like cheers. The chili cheese dog is great. The Buffalo Fried shrimp are great. I get mine with the sauce on the side and dip the shrimp into the sauce and then into the blue cheese. But, that's just me. I will definitely be coming back.

Thank you . We hear the cheers reference often. We work hard to try and make sure we learn everybody's name. The buffalo shrimp are yummy. They are one of our most popular appetizers. We even have customers that like to turn them into an entrée portion for dinner. We will see you next time! Thanks again Faith Roppelt partner More

My husband had a childhood friend in town visiting from Virginia - he said all he had thought about eating while he was here was oysters and crab legs. We did the oysters ourselves, but got stuck trying to find a place that served GOOD all you can eat crab legs. All the places we used to go were gone.... More

My Friends and I go here all the time. The food is great!. The staff is super!. They go out of their way to make you visit totally enjoyable. My grandson goes with us often and declares they have the best wings ever.. In fact he is called "the wing man" by the staff.
