We came in a group. I had Simple Salmon -- which was overcooked, but the salad accompanying it was delicious. The folks who ordered burgers were very happy. The service is "cook to order" -- so very slow.

I have been going here for years. I never ordered a salad, sandwich, or dessert that wasn't fabulous. Everyone loves the Hungarian mushroom soup, crab cakes, and the mini-pumpkin muffins that come with the salads. I knew one gal who was so addicted to the...More

A tad pricey but if you like food, you can't beat this place. EVERYTHING tasted amazing. If you are hungry, don't get the scallops entree (you only get 4 of them!)

Went for breakfast about a week ago. Scrambled eggs - good. Hash browns - more like tatter tots and probably frozen. Sausage - that artificial maple taste - yuck! Service was still good. Coffee is good. Not the Main Ingredient anymore.More

We've been visiting the Main Ingredient for years. We're not regulars, but drop in a few times each year. No matter the meal, or if it's just dessert and coffee, the food is very good to excellent, and the service friendly and just attentive enough....More

I don't think anyone would be forcibly ejected for wearing a cap, but it's generally considered boorish and ill-mannered for a man to wear a cap in a restaurant (unless he's wearing it for medical or religious reasons.)

I just phoned Main Ingredient for you. While they typically do NOT take reservations in the morning, for a party of 8 they likely will. So give them a try and call them. Their breakfasts are outstanding!
