Attended a family celebration in a side room which was perfect for young and old alike. The children could move around freely and the adults could hear one another talk. The Kentucky bourbon salmon was very good as was the cod special. Both came with soup or salad and choice of potato.

My wife and I enjoy eating at Main Street. The wings are fabulous on Thursday nights, the family style chicken on Wednesday nights is very delicious too. Great tasting steaks are available on The weekend and also Tuesday nights. Tex and Joanne are very friendly owners who always take time to say hello.

This place is excellent! Great food and reasonable prices! The atmosphere is great - high ceilings, old fashioned bar, just an all round eclectic bar. Their house dressing is the best I've ever tasted!!

Stopped for a quick bite while traveling. Definitely a bar, which was fine. Clean & well kept. Burgers were pretty good, juicy and flavorful. Good service. Would rate higher if it was a "must go back to' spot.

Tex, owner and chef does a great job. They have daily specials for lunch and dinner. They have a cookout the fourth Sunday of every month which is fantastic. Choices include pork chops or ribeye. With the meat you get a salad bar (fantastic) and dessert.

Air conditioning was too cold. When the ventilation system turned on, it was too loud AND you froze! It was loud, but I've been in worse environments. Service was average. The night our group was there, most of the group ordered chicken wings. My boneless wings had a nice sauce, but they were dry. My mixed drink was nice. Somebody... More
