We were out shopping during a recent trip to Hilton Head and stopped by the Main Street Cafe for lunch. The cafe is wonderfully decorated and the server was knowledgeable and efficient. The food was fantastic, fresh and hot. The Main Street Cafe is large yet feels intimate. There is a bar with the corner pub feel to it as... More

The only hiccup we had a was a slow greeting from our server, who throughout the meal we assumed took too many smoke breaks, as... More

Let me just say, all you can eat crab legs! Not some dive or buffet but a nice restaurant. The whole menu looked good but we were in the mood for crab. Great service too.

We wanted to get all you can eat crab legs, and were referred by the locals that live on the island. We certainly weren't disappointed. They are great size legs, and they keep em coming.

My daughter wanted to taste Crab Legs so we checked Trip Advisor and found Main St. Café and Pub in Hilton Head. This place has been there for many years and is "frequented by the locals".
