Wow!! Main Street Eatery is amazing... The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world. My boyfriend ordered the New York strip and I ordered the meatloaf... Both meals were absolutely mind blowing, packed with flavor and zest! All and all, this place is one of the best in all Lynchburg! Thank you for making our birthday... More

Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, and fantastic waiter. We wanted a special place to celebrate our anniversary while visiting Lynchburg. Main St Eatery delivered! Love how they transformed a men's clothing store into a beautiful restaurant. Loved our waiter!

Mussel night was great. Good service, not a long wait. Good desert. Beer was a little pricey. Overall a memorable experience.

Never disappoints! I have had a few firsts here. Escargot. Rabbit liver. Amazingly cooked and decadent. For the less adventurous there are plenty of other options that will allow you to taste it again for the first time. Enjoy!

This was my second visit to the Main Street Eatery and I will surely be returning. First visit was with my husband and the visit today was with a total of 6 people. Service was attentive and accommodating, food was very good -- very ample portions -- and atmosphere is lovely.

Fine European style dining in a casual atmosphere- all the German specialties and many other choices. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Try something new- you'll love it. The desserts are beautiful and tasty. Full bar. Not cheap but good price for what you get. My favorite- they have unlimited mussels mid-week- call and ask. Parking might be a problem-... More

I ordered the veal. The meal came on a very hot plate, so hot that I had to wait some time to begin eating it. After a few bites of mushroom and potato, (where was the veal?) my tongue and mouth began burning from the amount of pepper in it. I told the waitress and she returned it to the... More

We found the Main Street eatery by accident-- we were looking for somewhere special to eat for our anniversary. We had passed Main Street Eatery, and decided to try it. As we were ushered to our table, we walked by the dessert cart and decided we would definitely be staying for that! Sara waited on us, and was pleasant and... More

We remembered the old Emil's from earlier trips to Lynchburg and were thrilled to visit the more recent downtown incarnation of the restaurant, the Main Street Eatery. The elegant, welcoming ambience drew us inside, and the wait staff - many of whom have been with the owners for years - attended to our every need. A large perfect martini arrived... More

We don't get to eat here enough! The food is always wonderful and service has always been attentive and pleasant. Michelle always greets us with a big smile; we always feel that she is so glad to see us, even if it has been years since we have gotten to eat here. Desserts are wonderful. Seafood is wonderful. Meats are... More
