Unassuming place for great food and great service.

We went here for lunch on our family vacation and it ended up being one of the best places we ate. The hospitality was spectacular and the food was the same. I had the cheeseburger and the key lime pie. Im not exaggerating when I say it was possibly the best Ive ever had for both.

I made reservations for 7:00 on a Monday, while we got seated right away, it took a while to get our drink orders taken and to get our salads. My husband wanted to go for the all you can eat crab legs and didn't get his first plate for 50 minutes and that was only after I complained (the table... More

Our table of 4 had 2 different people waiting on us, one came by occasionally to tell us she was our waitress but never brought us anything, the other offered no knowledge of the menu and was more interested in flipping the table. We received zero refills of water, and we're not asked if we even wanted additional drinks from... More

Stopped in for happy hour. Half priced apps and drinks. Food was great and the beer was cold. Sat at the bar and the bartender and all the locals were very friendly. It started pouring outside as we sat there and we watched the bar back run outside with an umbrella and assist an elderly couple through the parking lot... More

We chose Main Street Café because they offered all you can eat crab legs. My husband and two sons thoroughly enjoyed them. However, the service was really slow. We only had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated at 7:00PM on a Sunday but from there on it was a snails pace. From our initial drink order to refills,... More

After doing some shopping, we were trying to find a place to eat near Barnes and Nobles on the island. We were making a turn around near Main Street Cafe and decided we were so hungry, and "let's try it" cause we need food now dialog was going on. Even though it was reservation only, the manager quickly accommodated our... More

Went here for lunch with my husband. So delicious! Tried to go back the next day but wasn't open yet as it was 10:45. I think we'll be coming back every trip!

My wife and I will always make it a point to go to the Main Street Cafe when vacationing on Hilton Head Island. We have been for both lunch and dinner. The food is always very good, consistent and priced reasonably. This year there was a group of 10 of us who decided on having one of our last dinners... More

My husband and I really like crab legs, but fresh ones that are cooked correctly are hard to find. Main Street's crab legs were fresh and cooked to perfection. Service was good and the atmosphere was very nice.
