Down on Mainstreet has now been established for several years. Good reason is the variety of fresh seafood, appetizers and value on the menu. Located in along mainstreet (yuh think?), it can be busy and noisy, but it goes with the character of the high ceilings and old building. Consistently good, a loyal clientel assure it should be there a long, long time.

hands down the best I have ever had. I have dined at Down on Mainstreet about 5 times in the past 18 months. I got Shrimp and Grits on the first visit and have made the 50 miles trip several times since. The shrimp quesadilla and the fried pickles are great appetizers. Service has been consistently good and the pricing is within reason. I may venture out next time and try something new.

i loved it! the food was great, the bar was spectacular, and the atmosphere was exciting! Men will enjoy the 4 plasma tv's with a game on each one but it is all family-oriented.

The service here can vary alot; however, if you get a good waitress then you can look forward to good food and decent prices. Dining on the patio you get glimpses of the waterway. In a building in historic downtown Washington, NC - atmosphere is nice and family friendly. I almost always get the shrimpburger - it is pretty amazing! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
