“very average mall.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Found this mall very average. General food court area and department and speciality stores. Macy's looked very run down and need of repairs and overalls in lots of areas, but staff friendly. Different to what you expect to find in shopping centre in Brisbane, ie: no newsagents, various hair care/beauty products shops, chemists.

“Good Alternative to South Coast Plaza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Main Place Mall in Santa Ana is a good alternative to South Coast Plaza, if you happen to be in the area.

It is clean, safe, and conveniently located off of the Interstate 5 and the 22 Fwy. The mall includes a Macy's, Nordstroms, and JC Penney, not to mention various name brand stores and a variety of kiosks.

In terms of dining, there is an Olive Garden and a California Pizza Kitchen, in addition to a food court where you will find the typical fare, including Subway, McDonalds, Panda Express, and a full range of Asian and Mexican fast foods. I also noticed that a new Vietnamese Restaurant opened, which I would eventually like to try.

As is typical, Nordstroms offers an espresso cafe. However, you can also sample the brews at the Coffee Bean on the second level.

Finally, to finish your shopping and dining experience, you can take in a movie at the Picture Show Theater. (I believe there are 8 screens.) The cost of the ticket is only $2. It is a great deal. Note that the movies are not new releases, but are nonetheless recent releases. I always wait to see the movies here, rather than pay the 8 or 9 dollars per ticket at other theaters. With kids in tow, the savings really add up.

The Main Place mail is big enough to keep you and the kids occupied, but not so large that you get lost and forget where you parked your car. Main Place is one of my favorite places to take the kids for shopping.
