This nice cafe offers everything from all you can eat crab legs, salads, and really special Reubens with homemade potato chips that are warm when delivered. Staff is attentive.

This nice casual cafe was such a refreshing find on Hilton Head. My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner during our vacation in June. We both had the Fish Sandwich, that was grouper fried to perfection, along with fries and coleslaw. Tasted like fresh caught fish. My husband also ordered the Chicken Caesar salad, because he was...

We had a great dinner with the family. Wonderful selection of food which is hard to do with all of our boys but Main Street Cafe triumphed! Ben was our server and was very attentive and helpful with questions about the menu. The blackened shrimp with mushroom risotto was very tasty and the boys loved that their dinners came with...

Stopped here for an early dinner the week of July 4th. We got there about 5:45pm and thought we'd be able to get a table without a reservation. The inside tables were already reserved, so they seated us on the outdoor patio. In the summer, phone ahead for reservations. Our server was friendly and efficient. The manager stopped by to...

Needed a good place to eat for dinner, ended up settling on Main Street. Atmosphere was very nice, pub setting was nice (non drinkers). Food was excellent. I ordered the fish and chips, and it ranked in the top 3 plates I've eaten. Boom-boom shrimp was ordered, along with a salad, and the burger. All plates were delicious, and just... More

tried going to dinner on the south end, but didn't want to wait an hour and half, so we went here. no wait, but the place was busy. I ordered the grilled cheese with lobster, tomato and bacon. it would've been perfect if they left the soggy tomato out, or put it on the side. the Cajun fries was delicious,... More

Enjoyed our lunch here. Friendly staff. Located in a newer looking shopping plaza that had other eateries and a grocery store.

This place is okay but not what I expected when I looked at the reviews. Visited at lunch so maybe dinner is better. I doubt that we'll revisit.

Our group of 8 made reservations and were seated immediately. The pretzel appetizers were quite a hit. The Reuben sandwiches were good, the quesadillas were good but the sour cream was not on the side. The blackened shrimp salad was good and the children's grilled cheese sandwich was huge. The drink special was tasty and a great price. Look around... More
