“Very unassuming, but very, very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

My wife and I were attending a local event in the little town of Prosperity, SC. When lunch time rolled around, we asked several of the locals, “Where’s the best place to eat… that’s NOT a chain.” Three out of four people recommended the Main Dish Café. It’s a very unassuming little storefront restaurant. The food is outstanding; most of which is homemade. It’s also very reasonable.

The service was a little slow. We walked into a couple of un-bussed tables, which can get some people really bent out of shape. It appeared, however, that the waitresses bussed their own tables; and it was rather busy. The staff is incredibly friendly; not phony or condescending. With that being said, I think that between the quality of the fare and the pleasant nature of the staff, one can definitely overlook some of the minor things.

I went out on a limb and passed on my usual burger and fries and took the advise of the waitress. I had a pecan smoked sausage sandwich which was seasoned with a spicy country mustard and topped with sliced cheese. All of which was on a sourdough bread that was then grilled so that everything melted together. I also had a side of their homemade potato salad. All of which was, as Guy Fieri would say, “Crazy good!” My wife had some of their homemade soup and a grilled chicken salad plate. That too was outstanding. All-in-all, the food is excellent and very reasonable. I’d say that it’s definitely worth a ‘look-see,’ to those who’ve never been before. And as for us, a repeat visit next time we’re in the area. Well done. God bless.
