“A taste you can see for yourself :)”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Of all the places to eat in Merrickville, this place never ceases to please. I dine here regularly and have few if any complaints. breakfasts are heary and fast, Lunch specials ALWAYS a good value and dinner couldn't be more pleasant. For review I have the Hungry man Beakfast and the Pork Chop Dinner. The hungry man is just that. BIG, I couldnt finish it, I get it every time :) Now for the pork chops, I have to say they were grilled to perfection, but they could have hit me a little harder with the mashed potatoes. (Just sayin). 4 out of 5 any day :) see for yourself :)

“quality of food poor”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Lunches are good at Mainstreet but can't say the same about their dinners. Husband and I both had chicken fettucini alfredo, with salads and dessert. Large portion came. The chicken tasted like it had been boiled, sliced and scattered on top of the noodles... tasteless! The noodles were well done and they too were tasteless! The sauce on the noodles was like thin, white paste -- tasteless! Was there a different chef working this particular Saturday night? Don't know but it will be a while before we go back. Price for 2 entrees, 2 coffees, 2 desserts with tax $51.02 We don't mind paying if we get quality for our money.
If the chef isn't sure what it should look like or taste like he/she should go to a restaurant that serves good chicken fettucini alfredo (Tincap restaurant serves excellent chicken fettucini alfredo -- with coffee-- and dessert and charges less!!!)

Thank you for your review,I can assure you we take great pride in every meal we prepare here at Mainstreet,using only the freshest of ingredients (our chicken is lightly seasoned and roasted in house and alfredo sauce made from scratch to order).We are very sorry you did not enjoy our chicken alfredo as this dish is very popular! If you would allow us to prepare this dish again for you( on the house) it would be our pleasure!

Great place, clean and comfortable spot for lunch.Good portions and widely varied menu.Service was good and friendly.Will visit again when in this beautiful little town.
All of our friends had a different meal and enjoyed them equally well. A lot has been packed into a cozy environment,suggest travellers take advantage.
