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!

We had our end of the year appreciation dessert meeting here. We had delicious coffee and the server rolled over a 6 foot long cart of homemade desserts. The portions are generous and will leave you drooling. They are all hand made by the owner, who is from Germany. Tarts, cheesecake, Boston Cream Pie, ... and many more!

Main Street Eatery makes one want to come back for more. From the cozy bar with incredible beer and drinks to the relaxed atmosphere, extraordinary menu and welcoming atmosphere, one can't ask for a better evening in Historic Downtown Lynchburg. Treat yourself!

Main Street is a Lynchburg gem. It is not a very flashy restaurant. It is not a very loud restaurant. It is a restaurant that knows what it does well and continues to do it every time they open. They have amazing food. The chef is excellent and is always serving up fresh specials. The service is attentive and courteous.... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal and fantastic desserts. The service is fantastic. Don't be in a hurry; it is a two-hour experience. Enjoy!

We had rack of lamb and beef tenderloin topped with crab meat. Both meals were delicious and the chocolate cake ended it up golden. We had starter salads and the meats came with cooked vegetables to complement them. We want to return again and again.

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
