Nice place to have a relaxing meal

My husband and I came here for dinner. We were seated within moments of arriving. The waiter came over quickly, and greeted us warmly, and took our drink and food orders. The chicken wings came out within about 10 minutes. They were fine. We are used to them being crisper, and not so much sauce... read more

Came in for a drink with my cousins! The server brought us exactly the drinks we were craving. He was super friendly and nice. We will definitely return!

The server was a nice young man w no pretensions. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Since we were after the dinner hour, the place was uncrowded and quiet

I've been here a few times, trying a few different dishes. I took some visiting family members recently and was a bit embarrassed. Two people order a basil chicken pasta special - unfortunately, both came with no basil "sauce". At their request, the server brought a bowl of it for them to spoon over the dish. Other dishes were decent,... More

Eric, we are sorry that there was a misunderstanding about the Basil Pesto Chicken Pasta that we were serving as a special on the night you dined with us. Basil pesto is a "coating" that goes on the chicken before it is baked, or "tossed" with the ingredients of the dish for a light coating, not an actual "sauce." We... More

Stopped for dinner. Good beer (according to my boyfriend), but the food was just ok. I had the lasagna & he had the chicken parmesan. The waiter was friendly & attentive.

After a long day at Mesa Verde NP, I needed a good burger and brew and found both at the Main Street Brewery. Pleasant staff and quick service and I wish Ihad more time to try the different brew offerings.

The wings here are AWESOME!!!! -breaded and doused in a signature buffalo sauce. Omgosh, yum. They're home brewed beers are stellar as well; my favorite is the Uber Pils.... apparently it's everyone else's too, as they seem to be out of it frequently. No worries though, trying new things (especially beer) is the way to go!

One of the things that drives me nuts is bad service. And our experience here may be the stupidest service I've ever had. I'm not a fan of writing poor reviews simply because I know it's very difficult to run a service business. And to be clear: we neither ate nor drank here Our story goes like this. When we... More

When travelling the USA, brewpubs are our preferred dinner spots. Great beer, food and ambiance. Main Street Brewery disappoints on all three counts. Half the beers weren't available. The food was overall pretty mediocre. We love garlic but their garlic coleslaw just does not work. That taste kept coming back for hours. And the atmosphere is pretty dull. Half the... More
