“Main Event for sports fans who like a good meal while watching their favorite sport”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Main Event has a TV at every possible angle all showing a variety of different sports. The food is quite good for this type of venue with a varied menue to fit most tastes.The salads, burgers and other menue items are above average. Our server, Karen, was excellent and catered to our every need. Would definitely go back.

“Great Place to Watch a Game”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We came to discuss business, but were amazed by the number of big screen TV's throughout the restaurant. I had the steak that with blue cheese that was cooked perfect. Would highly recommend it.

Great place to watch all sports. Lots of tvs and a great menu. The prices are slightly high though. Nice atmosphere.

“Average Place”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Lots of flat screen TV's if you like sports. The food though was average. I ate at the bar and the service was good as very few people were there. It just seemed like too many items on the menu. There was a mixture of so many things they could never be good at all of them. Prices for dinner were pretty steep for a sports bar type place. I do not think they know what they want to be, a sports bar or fine dining, hard to be both.

Reviewed May 6, 2013

I have eaten hear many times while traveling in the area. I it to be a great place to catch a game with a view of a tv's from almost every table. Service is typically fast and friendly. The surprise for me was the quality seafood!. Great scallops, Stuffes shrimpand crab cakes all delicious and very large protions. If you looking for a casual evening out or a place to catcha game this is a great choice.
