    Was my companion's first time to try Main Street Grill. We were fortunate enough to reserve the 4 top in the vault, which always makes the dinner more private and romantic. Samual was an attentive server, providing the knowledge of the menu and non-pushy service that is always nice. We split the chef special of salmon and crispy prawn. Was cooked to perfection and the presentation was awesome. We also had the strawberry salad, which provided a great contrast with the entree. All in all, another delightful experience at Main Street. While there are other restaurants offering fine food in Round Rock, I always find Mail Street to provide the private and romantic setting we're looking for.

    We had a wonderful evening at Main Street Grill. It's a very comfortable restaurant, nicely designed, very welcoming. Upscale, but warm and inviting. Our host and server were both friendly, helpful, not at all pushy or hurrying -- just very accomodating. The menu is diverse and full of a wide variety of great selections -- we labored over our choices. Our appetizers were delicious and generous. Our main courses were also generous, and out of this world great! That kitchen knows what it is doing! I can't wait to return.

    We enjoyed a nice weeknight dinner. The food was excellent and the waitstaff was very efficient. The menu is what you would expect at a big city restaurant, not a small town place. One of our diners has multiple food allergies and the chef was able to accommodate her needs. We will definitely dine here again.

    The food was good, but not good enough for the price you paid. Also, I made reservations for 6:45 and somehow they lost my reservation and said it was for 5:45 contrary to my confirmation email. Thankfully there was not many people there so they we're still able to sets us. Our waiter was great, the food was good, and the ambiance was mediocre.

    We are new to the area and found out about Main Street Grill through word of mouth. We had our dinner early in the evening, and it was not busy. My husband and I both ordered fish entrees, and they were delivered to our table piping hot. Both our meals were delicious. The dessert was large enough for us to share, and it was creative and simple. The waitstaff was friendly and made sure we were satisfied with our meal. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to a friend.

    We had never been here but had heard good things. I put a note in that it was my husband's birthday and would like to be away from the kitchen traffic. They put us in the safe/wine cellar. What a delightful surprise. We loved it. It had the added benefit of being able to hear each other. The service was attentive with only one foray to get wine for someone else. We will definitely return.

    My entree was delicious, however husband's filet was under cooked and had to be sent back. The beef was not edible. Tough and chewy. Couldn't be eaten. This was our first visit to this restaurant, so may give it a second chance, but will definitely stay away from the filet mignon. To the restaurant's credit, they didn't charge us for the filet, but my husband's birthday dinner was very disappointing.

    The restaurant was less crowded than expected for a Friday night. It was quiet and we enjoyed being able to talk during dinner. Service was good. Food was on the level expected. The lamb was cooked just right. I lived in France for 15 years, and rarely order crème brulee here at home anymore, because I'm always disappointed. Although not quite lukewarm as it should be, this was as close to what you get in the hexagon as I've found here yet - and I'd order it here again. Great job!

    Traveling in the area and was tired of all the highway chains. Found the Main Street Grill on the internet and thought we'd try wandering away from our highway motel. Great decision. Exceptionally accommodating staff...excellent menu...and for the most part on our two nights the food was excellent (red snapper one night a little over done). Martini's ample and a bit pricey but more than acceptable. The most unique aspect: dinner in the wine vault was something we'll always remember. Definitely some place we will return to someday. Kudos all around.

    We've been to Main Street Grill many times now for many occasions. We've never had a bad meal or poor service. Took some friends there a month or so ago and they certainly understood why we think it is a nice place to have dinner. So glad to have a very good restaurant in Round Rock to choose. If you go you have to try a Drunken Banker. It's both and after-dinner-drink and dessert. Beautifully presented in a Martini glass! Well done, again, Main Street Grill staff.

    We booked into Main Street Grill on a very last-minute reservation. Overall we had a great experience and will likely return on occasion. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the ambience is pleasant. The restaurant is small, like most in downtown Round Rock, but this one is comfortable. Our food was good, nothing life changing but definitely of higher quality than most places in RR. The prices are high- you would get the same meal 20 minutes south for about $5 less per plate- but the convenience of not having to drive into Austin is a fine trade-off. To sum up, we won't make Main Street Grill a regular dining spot but may stop in a few times a year for special occasions, etc. and I have no trouble recommending it to others.

    Made an Open Table reservation and asked for the vault. The vault is the walk in bank vault of this old bank building that houses the restaurant wine, a 4 top table and a serving table. Very private and special for an occasion. Server Ryan was excellent, as always. Our food and Ryan's wine pairing suggestion worked very well. Our steaks, one of which was a house special that night, were prepared to order and presented very nicely. We were given the privacy we wanted without being ignored. All in all, another wonderful experience at the Main Street Grill. This is truly a gem of Old Town Round Rock. Be sure to make reservations, because it's been found.

    We love Main Street Grill, the food is always good and the service is usually excellent. A great place to go for a "Special Dinner" whatever the occasion. We did have one suggestion. Our last dinner some of the guest arrived early, they were seated and the adult was asked what she would like to drink. However, they did not ask the young teenager what he would like. Everyone should be asked.

    My wife and I dined here for our anniversary. It was a very pleasant dinner. Wait staff was attentive and pleasant without being over-bearing. The food was very good and properly cooked to taste. The sauces and seasonings were nothing extraordinary, but complimented the foods adequately. The shrimp served with the alfredo dish were a little too salty for my wife's taste, although she said the Monica salad was the best she'd ever had. Everything was reasonably priced for the quality of the meal. I can't give it a 5 star because I've been to better places and the wine list is a little thin. But if you want a nice dinner with very good food, attentive service and a quaint ambience, Main Street Grill in Round Rock is definitely worth a visit.

    I went to MAIN STREET GRILL on a blind date on a week night. I requested a quiet spot. The hostess not only provided that, but ensured that no one sat beside us! It was delightful. The Monica was lovely as usual and the avocado appetizer was also yummy. A totally enjoyable night! To boot, as she discretely indicated when learning this was a blind date, the hostess was especially caring and attentive. I would recommend this place to anyone at any time.

    I selected this restaurant for a lunch with a friend I hadn't seen in a long time, specifically because it is usually a quiet dining spot. When I entered, there were at least 3 tables of 10-12 (or more) patrons each and the noise level made normal conversation quite difficult. At least 10 minutes passed before we had to stop an employee and request a waitperson come to our table. We never received a bread basket and had to request additional napkins twice before they were delivered. Food was acceptable but nothing special. Prices were appropriate. I have eaten at this restaurant many times during the years it has been open, often for special occasions. Today's experience will make me re-think my dining options in the future.

    This was our first trip to Main Street Grill. On the whole we liked it and the food was good but not quite up to our expectations based on reviews. My wife had a Southwestern Chicken Salad Sandwich with house made chips and I had the Reuben with French fries. My wife thought the chicken salad was good to very good but found the size of the chunks (chicken, celery, etc.) overly large. I thought it was bland but I may not have gotten much sauce in my bite. The Reuben was good. On the small side, it was a good lunch but seemed a bit overwhelmed by the sauerkraut. The home made chips were very good as were the fries. Altogether a nice lunch.
