Excellent locxal chef and a team who not only get it but seem to care about delivering a good experience. Although a little loud the food has been excellent and I often take clients here for lunch because the hamburger is the best around and the salads are great. Menu offers contental and Asian items. BYOB.

I have probably been to 55 Main twenty times for both lunch and dinner and I have never been disappointed. The menu is interesting and the food is always fresh. Good wait staff, too. You can't go wrong here.

We've been to 55 Main St. several times over the past couple of years and everytime we've been there have had an excellent meal. There were four adults and one child on our most recent visit and this visit was no exception. Particularly pleasant was the staff's attention to and tolerance of our active 5 year old grand-daughter. (Fortunately she did seem to disturb any of the other patrons). But back to the meal. One of our party had the evening's special crab-cakes as an appetizer which he said were outstanding. Two of us had salads which were fresh and bountiful. For a main course, two of us had a tilapia stuffed with crabmeat (nightly special). The main dish was proclaimed to be OK while the accompanying vegetables were outstanding. I had the strip steak with bacon/blue cheese potatoes, mashed, coated and fried (delicious) and mixed vegetables which were also outstanding. The steak itself was as good as any I've had anywhere. The last member of our party had a simple dish of penne with sausage which he also said was excellent. One key feature of this restaurant is that every dish is beautifully and appetizingly presented. We think 55 Main is a truly fine and special restaurant.

The service was very good and Melinda was very professional and attentive. The upscale atmosphere was modern and the menu was appealing to most any palate appreciative of fine food. One could tell that the chef loves what he does.
Depending on where one sat, the seating may feel a bit close to another table but there are other seating options if one reserves in advance.
Easy to get to in the heart of downtown Flemington. We will be back ....soon.

Last night, we had dinner with a group of ten friends at 55 Main. It was our first time dining at this restaurant and we enjoyed it so much, we asked the chef to come out and we applauded him for an exceptional meal. He is a very talented chef who knows how to combine interesting ingredients which compliment each other and the entree itself. Some of the entrees we enjoyed were sautéed scallops served with squash, bacon and dried cherries with sweet potatoes au gratin. The combination of flavors was delicious! The strip steak was cooked perfectly and was a tender, nice cut of meat. It was served with the most delicious bacon and blue cheese potato fritters. The tuna was also cooked perfectly, served with a sticky rice and asian vegetable sauté. Also, the pan roasted duck breast with a sweet potato hash was amazing! The staff was exceptional. We had a waiter assigned to our table, but we were serviced by several of their staff who kept the meal moving at an enjoyable pace. They were pleasant and helpful and added to the dining experience. I would highly recommend trying 55 Main; you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be returning in the near future for another wonderful culinary experience!
