They're repainted in the restaurant side and will continue to make updates. We didn't go in the bar part but they have live entertainment there at specified... read more

Want a night out away from it all just to walk in, sit down and not be waited on for over 20 minutes. I'm done and will find better service at a McDonald's

A group of us were staying in Lexington for the Masters and stopped in to eat. We were treated excellently and had a wonderful meal with wonderful wines. It was such a good experience that we retuned the next night. The new owners are wonderful.

The wife and l heard there Were new owners and lots of changes, so we decided to check it out for dinner. While there are a few transition kinks to Work out, it looks like Main Street may have a real winner coming. Talking with the new owners, Bob and Janice, the first impression is the energy and commitment. Also,... More

Main Street Cafe has great Greek food, especially the eggplant parmigiana. It's the best I've eaten anywhere. Decadent desserts compliment excellent meals and they have a nice bar next door.

We both had fries which we requested to be crispy. They were cooked perfectly. Our waitress was absolutely top notch, keeping our... More

This place nails it every time I go - whether it's to hang out late night, or to get a meal with my family. Great atmosphere, involved and courteous owners, and very tasty food. It's one of my favorite spots in the midlands when I'm taking 3 generations of my family out to dinner.

We went in to see what it looked like and read the menu, so the first nite we had an app and two beers, the app was really good, so we talked to the girl that was there and she turned out to be one of the owners! Told us to come back on Friday for dinner and at 10... More
