What was to be a lovely Birthday dinner, turned out to be one of the most horrible dining experiences ever. It started with what were supposed to be "fresh Virginia Oysters". These tasteless room temperature things were right out of a jar, laying atop used shells, floating in a mucous like watery pool. Yuck! Hubby ordered Beef Stroganoff with Spazil... More

We went here for our anniversary, and we were both disappointed. I ordered Wienerschnitzle. It was tough and not overly flavorful. My husband ordered another pork tenderloin. It was okay, but nothing to write home about. It's pretty pricey, too and the service was mediocre. We probably won't be back.

We had dinner for 2 with a late arrival from Richmond and Jeremiah took good care of us.We placed the order for 3 and not only did he time the different courses to arrive perfectly, he had her beer extra cold when our guest arrived. Even though we came in late, they did not rush us and made us feel... More

In my opinion this is the best place to eat in Lynchburg. We eat here several times a year to celebrate special occasions. The service is excellent, and the food is superb. The Oktoberfest menu in the fall has numerous wonderful German specialties. And then there are the desserts...unbelievably good.

It all starts off with terrible parking. Then you go into the small eating area. They sit you on pew benches along the wall you hope will support you as they crack and pop during any movement. Then you realize that you have one server who is trying to make 12 people happy while he has 2 additional tables. It... More

Visited the Main Street with my sister and her husband in June. The meal was delicious and the service outstanding. My sister and brother in law new the owner, so they may have had special service, but I can't believe that the food would be any different. Everything was delicious, including dessert, which I usually don't have. I don't know... More

I don't often write reviews because I think everyone is entitled to a bad day. This is worst than a bad day it bordered on discrimination. My daughter and I decided to try the Main Street Eatery because my office is in the building next door and we enjoy fine dining. We entered the restaurant and a couple was right... More

We met my wife's father for dinner at Main Street. The service was good. Nice atmosphere. The food was good. It was "Restaurant Week" in Lynchburg, so we ordered off of that menu. They had salmon, and I had the beef tenderloin. Both were very good, as was the chocolate creme brûlée. Maybe a bit pricey, but otherwise very nice.

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants. I love the atmosphere (it's an historic building) the owners make you feel comfortable, the wait staff knows what they are talking about and the food is delicious! I highly recommend the rack of lamb and although it's not on the dessert cart, the creme' brulee is awesome!
