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.

Martini on Main, Algonquin. Thanks for ruining which was to be a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner. Purchased your Groupon and made dinner reservations (mentioning Groupon) 3 weeks in advance. Sat down at table and waitress advised could not use Groupon. I stated I told at time of reservation I had Groupon and No Where on Groupon does it state it... More

Great Martinis and good food. We've been by this place a hundred times and finally decided to try. Nice cozy place. We tried the shrimp appetizer special and it was great. Prices are good and portions are generous. We will definitely come back.

As the title states, the food is great, the ambiance is great, but the staff leaves A LOT to be desired. We have been there twice, and to watch them disallow some people from entering just because they didn't like the way they looked is horrible. They hold tables for "reservations" and they don't actually have them from what it... More
