This place has a nice décor and a good menu. Service was competent and efficient. There's a nice bar and plenty of people ordering their meal at the bar. As a visitor from the New York area to the South Bend area a few times a year (for University of Notre Dame), this is one of the places that is more like a restaurant from a major metropolitan market. I will return on future visits. It is a nice break from the overwhelming selection of chain restaurants near Grape Road.
When we visited last month the food itself was good, but short of excellent. The scallops and lamb were nice quality, but unfortunately the lamb was cooked beyond everyone's request (medium rare was definitely medium and not too far from medium well). The scallops were very good. (We were here a few years ago and my recollection was the rack of lamb was perfect last time.) We did not order dessert so I can't comment.
We'll be back. The atmosphere, service and menu make this a worthwhile eatery even if the food is not quite a grand slam. PS-- it's noisy when full.

We had the Flatbread steak on naan bread. Very nice. Pizza...goat cheese basil and sundried tomato was overbaked. Tomatoes burnt to unchewable crisp. Edges of crust near burnt. Good idea bad execution. Waitress failed to notice we ate the cheese onions and basil off the overbaked crust. Would try again but avoid the pizza...perhaps too difficult fo r kitchen staff to get out of oven soon enough. Two people for lunch one beer 3 7. bucks.

I went here recently and had the Ahi Tuna appetizer and the Rack of Lamb entree both were cooked and seasoned to perfection. The plating as well as the ambiance was beautiful. The drinks made there are almost a work of art and I was surprised by the extensive wine list and craft beers on tap. Out of all of the higher end restaurants in town by far my favorite!

This is a great spot for a nice dinner or drinks. My sister and I had a lovely adult dinner and the staff was very accomodating in making her a drink that was not on the menu. We shared 2 main courses, Fish and Wild Mushroom Pasta, and appetizer had plenty of food, but not too much. Great attention to taste and presentation. See you next visit!

We have been to the Main St. Grille several times and had a good meal. This weekend we had a much different experience. The baked brie appetizer was fine, but much smaller than usual and the salmon was the SMALLEST piece of salmon we have ever been served. It was no wider than 1/2 " wide. Was it good? Too small to tell. This is a last visit for us. The prices are quite high and the portions are small. There are too many other choices in the area to waste our hard-earned money here.
