Good food, great beers, good prices, creative chefs. Terribly noisy. Unlike their competition they are too lazy to post daily specials.

Ate in the pub. Nice decor, food tasted wonderful. The service was good as well. Pub tables are first come, first serve, which is nice as tables in the restaurant had a 30 minute wait.

We eat here (usually in the bar) about once a week. The menu is large and there are daily specials. Service is always outstanding.

The Willimantic Brewing Company/Main Street Café is a living landmark restaurant and pub brewery located in Willimantic, in the heart of rural northeastern Connecticut.Our original Main Street Café was founded in 1991, and began operations as a small deli in the old Capitol Theatre building on Main Street in Willimantic, CT. Occupying both the lobby and concession area of the theatre, seating was limited to 50 people. After 3 years we were bursting at the seams and made the move to 877 Main Street, another historic building. There we expanded to a full service restaurant and featured American craft-brewed beers and an extensive menu. One more move was in the cards for us, and we made yet another trek down Main Street to our home in the current granite and limestone 1909 U.S. Post Office Building.
