“Great simple food with wonderful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Last week it was so hot we couldn't cook, so off we went to the Mainstreet.It's not somewhere I go often as when I eat out, I prefer to make an event of it. That, and a wheat sensitivity makes regular-type restaurants a bit of an issue. However, we tried the Mainstreet nachos and they were fantastic. The lovely waitress assured us it was big enough for two, and she wasn't kidding. Service was friendly, happy, and quick, and the price amazing.

“Delicious meal at Mainstreet Restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We recently travelled through Merrickville and had the pleasure to dine at Mainstreet. The tilapia and chicken quesadilla were quite delicious. And although we didn't have the mashed potatoes, apparently they are to die for. Chelsea and Krista were very hospitable. Next time you're in Merrickville, be sure to stop in....you will be pleased.

“A generally good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our family visited Merrickville this last weekend, and a local recommended the Mainstreet Restaurant to us. .

The menu is quite extensive with a range of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pizza, burgers, entrees ect; it was challenging to narrow down exactly what I wanted to get. We ordered dishes including, the fisherman's delight, the Tilapia filet, fajitas, chicken parm with Alfredo, and a gluten free club sandwich. Everyone found the food to be very good and we had a range of people there from seasoned foodies to more conventional eaters. The fish dishes were cooked perfectly, and the pasta was not overcooked. Even more, there was kudos from the beer drinkers that the beer was very fresh out of the taps.

The value was great, and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. If we return to Merrickville, we'd likely come back.

“A taste you can see for yourself :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Of all the places to eat in Merrickville, this place never ceases to please. I dine here regularly and have few if any complaints. breakfasts are heary and fast, Lunch specials ALWAYS a good value and dinner couldn't be more pleasant. For review I have the Hungry man Beakfast and the Pork Chop Dinner. The hungry man is just that. BIG, I couldnt finish it, I get it every time :) Now for the pork chops, I have to say they were grilled to perfection, but they could have hit me a little harder with the mashed potatoes. (Just sayin). 4 out of 5 any day :) see for yourself :)
