I made the terrible and regretful choice to visit this restaurant for an important wedding anniversary. The drinks were good and as costly as the the over priced small portion meals. The duck was a serious joke. 4 medallions soaked in maple syrup and bacon grease. The worst attempt at a culinary creation ever. The filet kabobs were singed and... More

Stopped by this local restaurant, with friends, for the 'happy hour' specials that it had advertised on its website - we were the only customers there. Once we sat down we were informed by the bartender that they no longer offered any of the specials and that if we had looked at their FB page we would've known that. No... More

A great place for a unique dining night out but a bit on the pricey side but wonderful atmosphere to WOW a date on. Excellent food!

This was my second visit. I ordered the bacon wrapped scallops, and the bacon was raw. When I made a comment to the waiter, he told me the cook said it was fine. I ate the scallops because I was hungry, and left the bacon on my plate. I will never go back here. There are many better choices where... More

Lovely, intimate restaurant on Main Street in the town of Algonquin. Martini menu is extensive. Kelly, the bartender that evening, was fun and gregarious, so we ate at the bar. The diverse menu allows for an excellent upscale experience or more casual dining if so desired. The double cut, bone-in pork chop was beautifully prepared. Of a variety of sides,... More

Although we had heard great things about this place, we were not impressed with the service, atmosphere, or the prices. We each had a good martini, and Martini options were comparable to nearby restaurants, but On Main was not as good as others. Entrées, drinks and appetizers were more expensive.

Thank Lorel C
