Main Street offers a wide variety of food. The focus is German to an extent, but there is quite a variety of international fare. My favorite dish is the Steak Frites. The steak is high quality, sliced, topped with sauce and served with Green Beans and a side of Frites (Fries). You won't find another restaurant of this kind in... More

Have been to Main Street twice now in the last couple of years and was very pleased both times. The chef (and presumed owner) is Austrian and the menu does reflect this fact; however the menu is very imaginative and delicious. Among the dishes my party had were the Veal Zurich, Wiener Schnitzel, and Hassen Pfeffer, and a selection of... More

Wonderful menu with a wide variety - even escargot and hassenpfeffer. I have never been unhappy. And the desserts are great.

Food was decent, atompshere was ok, until I witnessed the chef ream out an employee as the whole restaurant watched. I will not go back.

The service was very attentive on the Tuesday night that I visited the restaurant. I had the special - sea bass with shrimp and rice, which was above average. They also have Spaten beer on tap, and serve it in the authentic .5L Spaten glasses (that is the only beer on tap, though). They seem to cater more to the... More

By reading the other reviews, it seems that you either get great service or horrible service. In my experience, the service was great! For starters, do not plan to be in and out within an hour, it is a very sit down and enjoy your meal experience. My group was there for 2 hours, but there was not a time... More

Do not be fooled by what you see on the internet. Neither the menu nor the photos are true. This restaurant is possibly the worst in my world-wide experience. My house salad of chopped iceberg lettuce was filled with pieces that were partially browned. I couldn't eat it. I ordered duck breast which came layered in potatoes and brown gravy.... More

The Octoberfest is something to look forward to every year. From the Spaten on draft to the delicious food and desserts. The service is great by any standards and the best in Lynchburg by far.

First of all, let me just say that I have never written a review for any establishment. But, our experience was so bad I owe it to the world to share.. After a long day of presenting at a conference, my wife and I returned to our hotel, changed out of our dress clothes, threw on my favorite ball cap,... More
