We vacationed in Hilton Head from July 5-12. After scouring the "touristy" brochures for a couple days and reading trip advisor for crab leg places we decided to try Main Street Café on July 9th for dinner for their "All You Can Eat Crab Legs". We made reservations as others suggested. When we arrived it wasn't that busy, but by... More

We were excited to try this restaurant after reading some great reviews on TripAdvisor. We had a party of seven and called ahead and made reservations. Maybe it was a bad night, but the food was average at best and the service was below average. While our waitress was friendly, she wasn't timely. We had to beg for drink refills,... More

We ate here for lunch. Maybe we ordered wrong but we were not that impressed. It's not that the food was bad, we just didn't really enjoy what we ate. The service was very good. I would possibly give this another try to see if we liked something else better.

Dined here on Thursday, July 17. Had reservations for 6:30, and were seated immediately. The place was already almost full at that time, and it was bustling! We originally wanted to order the crab legs, but decided to do that another time. The ones being taken to many of the other tables looked excellent, though. Our table opted for the... More

We had a good time, good food at a reasonable price. The ambiance was ok, a little busy but what the heck, it is a tourist town.

This place wasn't far away from our place. The place was packed because of "all you can eat crabs" the service was good and the food was decent my wife had the broiled seafood platter and I had swordfish w/ grits. I suggest you make a reservation.

It's a good local place, although not the best pub on the island, I would recommend it if you're in the area. It's kinda of a northern island institution.
