Gluten Free Possible

I got a steak and potatoes and they were delicious. I told the waitress I was gluten free, and they were able to change the original marinade on the menu to accommodate me. It was delicious! On top of that, they had a gluten free chocolate hazelnut cake that the owner himself made. The portion was... read more

The food is as good as you would find in a fine restaurant in Europe. The duck was wonderful, the mussels just like Belgium and the side dishes were perfect. Dessert was amazing. The charming atmosphere and friendly staff made the superb cuisine shine even more.

Tonight we celebrated our son's graduation from LU at Main Street Eatery. What an excellent choice we made! Our party of nine enjoyed the leisurely dinner with scrumptious food in every course. We loved the goat cheese meatloaf, the veal, and the almond encrusted sea scallops with salads and lobster bisque. The waiter was patient and friendly. His service was... More

We had mixed reviews of this restaurant. We were attracted to the restaurant based on the street placard listing the menu. Once inside and given the menu we noticed several items not listed compared with the street placard. When we questioned the server, he stated that the street placard is old (then you should not have it outside). When we... More

My wife and I do "Date Night" on Thursdays, so this week we decided to try Main Street, primarily for the all you can eat mussels. The service was fine (we were early diners so the place was mostly empty). The ambiance is nice, we like "old world" look and feel with brick walls, etc. Food, however, was disappointing. An...

Had dinner on a Thursday evening. Quiet and comfy place. Had duck eggroll appetizer and it was amazing. Dinner was delicious and service was very good. I understand they have a great traditional German style menu in the fall in honor of Oktoberfest so I may need to make a trip down just for that!

Consistently excellent food, beautiful presentation, intimate and warm atmosphere. We celebrate family milestones, such as birthdays and anniversaries, even a retirement, here.

This is one of the best places to eat in Lynchburg. We arrived during oyster month, with great fresh oysters, but everyone at our table of 6 was highly satisfied with his or her meal. And the desserts are particularly special. Urs and Michele are to be cherished.
