Consistently Excellent

For us, comfort food is a Patty Melt or Grilled Salmon on a Salad; in tonight's case Spinach. We literally grabbed a bite, last minute and the food was served hot and prompt. Had the cajun fries for the first time. Not overly spicy like Five Guys does. Just pleasant. In and out quickly; probably... read more

This resturant was very good. We had a party of 6 and everyone got the crablegs and everyone was happy with how the crablegs were cooked. The staff is very friendly and the food is good.

We came by this gem quite by accident. The Friday night Fish Fry was very good and the all you can eat crab legs were to die for. The place is hidden from the main road so it is not easy to find but once you find it you will visit again.

We always suggest finding your destination during the day as it can be tricky at night. With that said we are glad you found us and we... More

Visited it on our first night to Hilton Head. Decided to take advantage of happy hour (4-7) in bar. Half off several appetizers including fried green tomatoes and spring rolls....both excellent. Two had the seafood chowder that was so thick with seafood, could have eaten with forks. They loved it. One had curried chicken salad that she loved. Two had... More

We were looking for a nice local restaurant to eat dinner before a drive to Savannah. We found the Main Street Cafe just off Hilton Head Pkwy and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. The prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious!
