Stopped here for a simple lunch with friends expecting a good bowl of seafood chowder and good salads and sandwiches. The service was surly for starters. But the worst was the soup, the dish on which they pride themselves -- it was flour paste. I'd like to think that the cook was having a bad day but there are so... More

We enjoyed a two-for- one lunch with two other couples on a very busy day, but our server, Donna, we very attentive, ready to meet all of our needs. I had a Rueben, which was a bit dry, but still tasty. Donna suggested honey mustard dressing for my sweet potato fries and it was delicious . The grilled cheese lobster... More

Love Main Street Cafe! I have had appetizers and drinks, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch at this restaurant and I am never disappointed. They have very friendly staff as well as great owners that come out and greet me when they can.

Very pleasant ambiance. The Parmesan encrusted grouper and the sea scallops roasted in a creamy Parmesan sauce were ample culinary treats. No need for appetizer as the meal is served with a nice garden salad and rolls. The blue cheese dressing was excellent. Prices reasonable. Has a clean look and good service. Liked it.

My goal was to find a different genre of music each evening during our week in Hilton Head. I also was really hungry for a friend green tomato BLT. After reading the Main Street Pub had music on Tuesday nights we tried it. The guitar player sang soft mellow songs. As he said, if the original artist is dead, he... More

My first and her second visit to this quaint cafe on the north end of the island. The location is charming and convenient and the staff was friendly, if business-like. We both enjoyed an outstanding Reuben sandwich with fries. (a dill pickle spear would have been nice) The only negative was that both hers and my plate had a large... More

We are "part timers" on Hilton Head Island and Main Street Cafe is a regular stop for us when we are in town. I decided to do a review tonight, not only because we had a delightful dinner and a reasonable price , but also because we found a "two-fer" which made it a special, off-season bargin. I had pecan...

We had to eat at the bar as it was so crowded and the wait too long for a table. The service at the bar was great. The drinks and some appetizers were ½ off during the time we were there. We had parmesan crusted grouper, Buffalo shrimp (we were sitting next to people from Buffalo coincidentally), fried green tomatoes,... More

After having a bad day on the road all we wanted was a good meal and a beer! The Main Street Café was nearest the car repair shop and was well recommended by Trip Advisor. Good call!! We both had the Pimento Angus Bacon Cheeseburger! Very good flavor and the Cajun fries were seasoned just right. Oh, and the beer... More

Easy access and inviting décor. Fast and friendly service that treats you like a regular. Knowledgeable about the menu even knowing how the item is prepared and made. You can tell the servers are invested employees because they take the time to understand what you want. Great food. Reubens are easy to make and even easier to mess up. But... More
