This mall offers the traditional stores you'd find anywhere with the addition of a few other specialty stores. This mall has recently added various restaurants. The addition of the bowling alley and an upcoming gym are nice add ons. Parking is plentiful throughout the perimeter of the mall.

And just in time for the holidays! Mai Place had fallen from grace several years back! Too many customers without shopping bags! No restaurants to recommend other than Nordstrom Cafe! Thanks to new stores and new restaurants MainPlace Santa Ana has taken a big turn to the positive! Thanks to "PANINI Mediterranean Cafe, a new gym/swimming pool. And plenty of... More

Took are grandchildren there for lunch, what a surprise to see 2 and a half food courts!great selection of places to eat. Compared to South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. 3 department stores, Macy's, Penny's, and Nordstrom's and many shops for the "everyday" shoppers no high end stores here. Lots of shoes stores and clothing stores and misc stores.

Went there last friday for some dinner and shopping for the kids. The food court has changed a lot since I was last there. McDonald's is gone and a few other fast food places that I used to go to. There's a train ride on the second level that my kids enjoyed and a play area on the first level.... More

Main Place is one of those malls that hangs in there but just isn't the best place to visit. It seems that it is just better in the long run to go a little further to one of the larger, nicer malls down the road. The Macy's has been updated but the selection always seems "picked over". Even the Nordstroms... More

Main Place has really gone down hill, or should I say down-scale. The only reason I go to Main Place any more is for Nordstrom, and for my daughter - Forever 21. If not for these stores, I'd probably not go there at all. For a better experience, make your way to South Coast Plaza. You'll find a far greater... More
