2nd time there. Great food; but this time, took 2 hrs to eat. Competed w/several large parties in the restaurant & the fact there were many show goers there. We should've been advised up front that it would take some time vs waiting & waiting. But I believe that to be an isolated incident.

No matter how you slice it, when it comes to a restaurant the quality of the food is what matters. The food quality here is very poor, particularly if you are used to eating at three- to four-star establishments. The seafood bisque was watery and lacked proper seasoning. The salad was mediocre at best and the chicken came out thick,... More

You can always tell a good restaurant by the time it takes you to choose a meal. The menu at Main Street is extensive and consistently superb. It's probably the best place in town for special occasions and family-sized dinners.

What a wonderful, hidden gem on Main Street in Patchogue. We started with bruschetta and clams casino - the sauce was delicious and we used the bread to mop up the sauce. The lobster ravioli was the best - so much lobster in the ravioli and in the sauce. The service was great, very family oriented but also classy. Top... More

While the food is really good, and the servers are good, I feel the place is very cramped and thus it becomes very loud. It sometimes feels like you are sitting elbow to elbow. They have a live singer who is great, but it just adds to the noisy sense of the place.

Had a pleasant meal out on the back patio. Server was very nice and the food was good. Took awhile to get, but we just relaxed and enjoyed our drinks. Not easy to navigate if you use a walker or wheelchair.

I have to say for out dated decor and a scary guy that sings the food is always very good. I have never been let down by the food here ever. I would recommend for a good meal.

Have been there many times, BUT, this time I was disappointed. The portions if the main course we're considerably smaller. The presentation left alot to be desired. The taste was average. ..in past visits the above were all much much better.

The wait staff was amazing and the food was delicious. The ambiance is dated but hey you can't eat the paint and wallpaper and the food more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. Portion size was large with lots to take home. The waiter was absolutely perfect - attentative without being overbearing.

Thank Carrie D
