Crab legs

They have the best all you can eat crab legs on Hilton Head. They are cooked to perfection and the legs were not small. Donna our waitress was great, keeping us supplied with crab legs and drinks. She was very friendly and courteous. We will definitely return.

Go for the crab legs! It seems that is what most of the people were there for. You get a salad and crab legs for $29.99. Well worth it. You have to ask for bread.

Love the food but sometimes manager rude and claims reservation needed but when we get there, restaurant uncrowded. On Saturday, we called to see if we could make reservation and we were told, "oh we're slammed." Then he asked how many in party and we answered "2" and we were given a table. We showed up 5 minutes later to... More

We found this on our handy trip advisor app after playing mini golf. We were there late afternoon. This place has a very reasonably priced Happy Hour and tasty food. Not much in the way of decor or atmosphere but very friendly staff. We enjoyed ourselves!

This is the second year we have come to hilton head and Main Street cafe is a must. It is a comfortable, excellent restaurant. We came for the crab legs but the potato chips were amazing. Donna was our waitress and she was great. We all had fun and great meals - risotto with scallops also delicious. A must if... More

We visited the Main Street Cafe & Pub for lunch and had a wonderful meal. We tried the grouper wrap, lobster grilled cheese and a couple of salads. All were very good and reasonably priced. We liked the food and service so much that we went back the next day. We sat outside and had the pleasure of being served... More

Sea Chowder!!! Our excellent server, Doretta recommended the house sea chowder and I enjoyed every spoonful!! She mentioned they've received awards for it---I can see why. If I lived there I would have it often. Yum!!! The dinner rolls were freshly made and warm and tasty, too. The salmon spinach salad was delectable as well. We enjoyed the atmosphere and... More

Very good food! I didnt enjoy my salad, but I think my waiter just didnt know how to describe the dressings right. The crab was yummo though! Fresh and hot and not over steamed like Red Lobsters. The wait staff wasnt that impressive, but the food more than made up for it. Id go again and recommend to friends. Best... More

We've been coming to HHI for 15 years. Finally went to the Main Street Cafe & Pub this year because of it's location. We had a wonderful lunch and Cindy was very attentive. We had the most delicious Grouper wrap and a Southwest Shrimp Salad. My wife and I split both and were very happy we did. The grouper was... More
