The food and service was amazing. After a bottle of wine, oysters, and a cheese board I was already impressed and we hadn't even had the main course! Caesar salad and crab cake were to die for (no joke, probably one of the best salads I've had in a long time). Squid-ink pasta with scallops for my girlfriend who LOVED... More

We dine out a lot and recently were at Church and Main. Our martini's at $9.75 were very good. My wife had the rib roast; its been cooked for 36 hours according to our waitress. It would seem that the meat would be tender after cooking that long but that was not so. The meat was tough; not acceptable in... More

Awesome service followed by yummy food in a lovely setting! Get the church bread and go for the dessert too! This was our post skiing dinner so we were starving and every morsel of food was delicious.

Had a great meal here on a Friday night. Our waiter, Noah was attentive but not overbearing. The drinks were tasty and innovative. The food was perfectly prepared. I would highly recommend this place.

Food was good, but a very spicy appetizer was not correctly described in the menu, and this turned out to be a serious problem for one of our party. I thought this was a ridiculous ommission.

My wife and I ate a later dinner at Church and Main. It seemed like it was going to be larger but it ended up being a small venue with great ambience. The wine selection was good and the food was superb! Make sure to eat the bread with the butter they serve because they make their butter in-house. It... More

We came in last minute without a reservation, so we were not able to sit in the dining room. We found an open spot at the bar and had drinks and appetizers instead. The bartenders were great-- very freindly! The food was delicious and we will definitely be back here next time for a full meal.

The service was excellent, but the food was average. Even with reservations we got seated in the bar area and it felt a little crowded. After visiting some other places in town, I thought there are better options.

Had an early diner before a show, everything was great, from the craft cocktails to the food. Great oysters, and we especially enjoyed their take on "oysters Rockefeller" which was very light and delicate. Also, service was outstanding.
