We have never been disappointed in the food. They always have a rotating burger, as well as the option to build your own. Their scallops and shrimp are gigantic, and their crab cakes are fantastic. They're pretty quick, even when they're busy, and the bartenders...More

We had a great time at the Mainstream Bar and Grill. We had never been here and enjoyed the food and great selection of beer. It was busy but that was to be expected on a Friday night.

I've been here a few times, weekdays, weekends, and Friday night. The staff is great and the food is consistently good. I keep coming back for boneless Caribbean Jerk wings. Music is on point too!
