Dining in this room provides a quiet atmosphere for business meetings and dinner parties. A server is designated for this room when reserved and is there for your party only. This room is by telephone reservation only. Maximum seating for this room is 16 guests. Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/22/2014Food was delicious, very flavorful and prepared and presented well. Service was less than stellar. Waitress started out making an error in our drink order. When she got to the bar she said she couldn't recall what I had ordered, so she guessed (wrong) instead of coming back and asking. Second, and more egregious, she brought my wife the wrong entrée. Substituting something she did not order. My wife was more than gracious and did not return the dish. When we pointed this out to our waitress, she simply said she was sorry but did not ask to replace the dish or give us credit on our bill for the error. Two big mistakes on a simple party of two - poor.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Date NightOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 11/15/2014My husband & I were looking for a new place for date night. After reading great reviews we gave it a shot and were very pleased. They had live music and the food came out quickly and was delicious. We will certainly put it on our list to return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- 11 year hiatusOpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 10/18/2014After being away for 11 years, we dined at Main St. after we returned to the area. It was one of our favorites before we moved, and remains near the top of our list! Excellent prep and presentation.Special Features:
- Great foodPamapprovesDined on 10/13/2014Main Street Grill has a great menu and the food is good. Their soups are really special whether it's the daily tomato bisque or whatever the special is.Special Features:
- Don't let the name fool youOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/11/2014Main Street Grille sounded more casual than a wedding anniversary warranted, but the menu sounded appealing so we reserved for a Saturday night. This place is a gem. We were quickly seated in a warm and welcome atmosphere, rather casual, yet tastefully upscale with linens and crystal(?). Our service was attentive throughout and there was never a point where our beverages ran low. During the meal we were treated to pleasant live entertainment as well. We enjoyed the Crab-encrusted Trout and Pan Seared Lamb entree's and a delicious cheesecake. All were nicely presented and thoroughly delicious. It will be on our list to return to when we want a night away from the kids.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Always Enjoy my Business DinnersHaroldDined on 9/23/2014I use Main Street Grill regularly for business dinners. The restaurant has always come through for me and my guests. The ambiance is good, noise levels very manageable, and service more than acceptable. Did I mention the food? My favorite is the lamb, but there are a lot of excellent entrees. I highly recommend Main Street Grill for business or social dining.Special Features:
- Twice as Nice!M2KatVIPDined on 9/17/2014Brought clients in for lunch, had such an excellent special, brought the wife back for dinner so she could enjoy. Come on, you know you've done that too!Special Features:
- Consistently deliciousGeorgetownDinerDined on 9/16/2014I took my wife here for our first date. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much that I brought her here to propose marriage. We celebrate every wedding anniversary by eating in the vault. The service is always fantastic and the food is always unbelievably delicious.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A gem in Old Town Round RockgvrbaVIPDined on 9/13/2014Was 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.Special Features:
- Must return for more!wadeDined on 9/11/2014We 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.Special Features:
- pleasant surpriseOsoYummYDined on 9/5/2014We had not been here in years and had forgotten how much we enjoyed it. Fine dining close to home and great comfortable atmosphere.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Worth another tryJ4107VIPDined on 8/26/2014While disappointed with my dinner, the service was outstanding and the staff was friendly and helpful. My wife and I tend to be very picky about the food and had a few minor complaints. However, the place is worth another try!Special Features:
- Good food but loud.DnotniceDined on 8/19/2014Food was good but we were looking for romance. It was just too loud to be intimate.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- This is an old town jewel.LadieswhodineDined on 8/19/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food for a high priceBUbearmDined on 8/18/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice place to eatLovesNiteOutDined on 8/16/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Birthday'sZookaDined on 8/7/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food and Service with Ryan!DonM8618VIPDined on 8/6/2014We had a wonderful dinner with avocado crisp, warm spinach and brie, Southwestern pork loin, New York strip steak and pan-seared lamb with appropriate wines! Ryan was our server and did an outstanding job! We were able to sit in the vault area and celebrated a momentous birthday! We would certainly recommend the Main Street Grill to our family and friends!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Go To SpotGJTomballDined on 8/6/2014When heading to Round Rock for business lunches this is my "go to" spot. Good food and ambiance, but reasonable prices. Overall a great value for the quality!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- ShadyDined on 7/26/2014The food was delicious and well prepared. I have been several times and the service has been great, however this time our waitress was inattentive at best. Still overall enjoyable..Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good and BadOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 7/26/2014My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Does Not Disappoint....M2KatVIPDined on 7/16/2014Not easy keeping up the quality and service year after year. Updated menu items Rock!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SnootyFoodieDined on 6/27/2014The 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!Special Features:
- Vault room is greatStangolferDined on 6/7/2014Food is always excellent. Very convenient for Round Rock area folks. Service is also great. Highly recommend the Vault room for special occasions.Special Features:
- ShadyDined on 5/31/2014Atmosphere is great, Service excellent . The seafood was wonderfully prepared with interesting sauces. A great night out.Special Features:
- A Pleasant Surprise!RickettsVIPDined on 5/29/2014Traveling 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dependable great food!OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/24/2014Have been going there for years and the food is always great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Regulars for a reason.TonyDined on 5/23/2014We'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great local spotATXnorthieDined on 5/17/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DeliciousOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 5/17/2014The food was great. The Encrusted Rainbow Trout was delicious! My girfriends said the steak seasoning was the best and cooked perfect it. The Wine and drinks were just a good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Memorable birthday.....gvrbaVIPDined on 5/17/2014Made 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.Special Features:
- Disappointed with the food.MarylanderDined on 5/16/2014I had ordered the fried avocado which was delicious and crab cake and salad for my main course.the salad was good but the crab cake was all filler. I ordered a chocolate martini and that was watered down. Probably wouldn't of mattered but for the price I expected better.Special Features:
- Old Round Rock gemJeremyDined on 5/16/2014We are always looking for fun, exciting and refined places to eat. Main Street has become a staple of iurs that always meets these needs. The waitstaff is great, the drinks &/or wine list are full of fantastic choices and the food is phenominal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mother's Day lunchOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/11/2014Food was awesome, service excellent. Also the restaurant is not large, therefore not loud and noisy, which was perfect for my 85 yr old mother cause she could hear the table conversation. She had a great Mother's Day meal, and if mother is happy, everyone is happy!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- What to impress your clients?...RobertDined on 5/8/2014....then take them to lunch at Main Street Grill! This is a gem of Round Rock. The food, service and ambiance was outstanding. This is my "go to" choice for lunch and dinnerSpecial Features:
