For those who are not aware - 30 Main is a hidden gem. We dined outside this evening. The proprietor has spent much time and investment making the outdoor dining safe and comfortable. Tents with separated seating areas, and a picket fence surrounding the outdoor...dining section with heat lamps makes it delightful, as did a vocalist/instrumentalist. And of course - delicious, nicely presented and served food. My girlfriend and I shared complementary homemade hummus with garlic bread followed by (i couldn’t resist this) a crusty flatbread margarita pizza that was delicious, mini crabcakes and chicken veggie skewers. It’s a worthwhile visit and I hope you take the time to enjoy 30 Main!More

The lobster bisque and asparagus wrapped in phylo dough was excellent. For excellent food, wonderful service and atmosphere, I highly recommend 30 Main.

We choose 30 Main not only because it was close to a local theater and heard it was tasty. We were NOT disappointed. We LOVE to go to places and have an "appetizer party" !! Ordering 4 or 5 different appetizers and everyone sharing.... Almost...like tappas !! Everything we had was delicious. I am however a Bloody Mary snob and my first one was definitely a no go !! Or server was kind enough to remake it herself !! NIIICE !! We'll definitely go back and have another party !! Also the arugala pizza was awesome.More

Mike and Eunice gave us a wonderful experience with fantastic crab appetizers and beef and shrimp off the appetizer menu which is so satisfying we didn’t need an entrée.

Some good and some bad with this restaurant. We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated promptly. Parking is sketchy here but to be expected from a Main Line Restaurant. We ordered salads to start and they didn't arrive until 8:00, needless to say we...were getting a little anxious when we were told that they didn't even have bread to offer due to a "event upstairs" My salad finally arrived 90 mins later and it was really lacking! a few morsels of lettuce and a couple of tomatoes with a nice portion of burrata cheese, nothing for my husband who was starting to get aggravated when the meatball appetizer arrived we inhaled it! The meatballs were more like burger balls, no flavor... My husband ordered a Ceasar Salad with Chicken which was incredible when it finally arrived, it come with an entire chicken breast.... The pizza which was supposed to be flatbread was more like a deep dish pizza and was good. The waitress was sweet and apologetic. The band was way too loud for a dinner crowd. The beers were supposed to be draft but arrived in a bottle with no glass. If your not in a hurry or don't mind spending an entire evening here... I couldn't recommendMore

My husband and I wanted to go out and try a new place for dinner the menu and pics online looked wonderful we called made a reservation and when we got there it had to be maybe 2 other tables being used the restaurant was...empty I'm thinking well maybe this isnt their popular night we were seated and ordered the Mac and cheese wo/ lobster and bacon which taste like velveta Mac and cheese I ate as a child with crumbled crackers on the top okay so maybe this isn't their best dish my husband ordered linguine he said it was okay I ordered the crab cake entree presentation looked nice but the crab cakes were boiled with water still inside and the top had like a crispy look to the top but it was just a soggy wet crab cake the balsamic rice was salty and hard and I didn't even try the vegetables. The waiter was both the host and bartender, she was really nice we didn't complain we just said we were full the limonchello martini was ok. The bill came to $88 bucks and wasn't even worth $8 I will not be returning.More

There were 6 of us that went here on a Thursday Nite and there were a few tables taken and some people in the bar so it wasn’t busy. It appeared that there was only 1 waitress working and as a result the service was...slow. We had either soup-salad-appetizers or a dinner. It took quite a while to get our drinks and also a long time to get our food. The opinion was that the food was ok and tasty.More

Was recently told about this place by a friend/"foodie". The atmosphere is minimal with the 1st room being largely for the bar crowd and the other 2 sitting areas being neither large nor especially nice. The most ordinary atmosphere made the food quality surprisingly good....We had calamari and vegetable egg rollsto start, both quite good. Themain course salmon was -per my wife - "delicious" and my "lollipop" lamb chops were both plentiful (7 !! of them) and perfectly prepared. Both were accompanied by well made vegetable choices (rice and "smashed" potatoes respectively) I have had a lot better whiskey sours, but the wine list was reasonably priced and with good selection of both whites and reds. In sum - if you are looking for "comfort" food with a wide variety and good quality, in a very ordinary atmosphere/room, 30 MAIN would be a good choice.More

Thank you for you your honest and on point review. Our new bartenders are on point. Your next whiskey sour is on me.

The food was quite good, and the service was attentive. Parking though, is a huge issue. The entire area is "permit parking only", which makes it very inconvenient. I was surprised that on a Saturday evening that the place wasn't even 1/4 full.. They also...need to tone down the amount of Wasabi that they put on their Ahi Tuna.. For the drive and the parking hassle, I won't be back.More

Not as of right now; however, I am going to call them today and suggest this to them! They really don't have a lot of sidewalk space, but let's see if they are creative!
