Diner Reviews
  • "The food was amazing! So flavorful, served HOT, completely worth your money! If you are visiting in Dubuque, this restaurant is a must!"

  • "I travel for work and according to the National Pork Board there’s some big, juicy news for pork lovers who still enjoyed a chop or tenderloin, even though it had to be cooked all the way through to near shoe-leather density: The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has officially lowered the recommended cooking temperature for pork chops, roasts and tenderloins from 160 degrees, down to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Translation: Pork is now held to the same temperature standards as beef. That means, thanks to the new, lower safe cooking temperature for pork, your chops can now arrive on your plate tender and juicy – and even a little pink in the middle. I ordered my chop medium rare & it came out well done and cut like leather!"

  • "The Friday noght bar crowd was so loud that they really ruined the business conversation that I planned to take place during dinner. The food was good, and the service was very good, but I won't plan to take clients here inthe future with so much noise coming from the bar."

  • "The service was very good. The steaks were excellent. Problem the baked potatoes were underdone.My steak was perfect but my guessed asked for a medium steak. We had to send it back, My wife's steak was raw. Need help with the grill person. New menu is excellent for Dubuque. We will be back because all the problems are correctible."

  • "We went there for something different. Tired of the "steak houses" in Dubuque, I heard about the main street chophouse and made reservations. The experience was awesome and the food and service was excellent too. Will definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family."

  • "I was on a business trip with a collegue and this resteraunt fit the bill nicely. This is a great spot for entertaining clients as the noise level was perfect for conversation. The service and food were great. I thought that the food was priced accordingly for my visit."

  • "I went there with my husband. Had a good time. Parts of the meal were good, and other parts were inedible. It was way too loud, for a quiet date night."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "They have revamped their menu more appropriate to the city. Still some of the finest AGED beef in town, All 3 ordered to different degrees and each cooked perfectly. 2 added lobster tails which though small were moist and succulent. The Wedding Cake dessert was HUGE! ONLY disappointing food factors- small salad and lack of baked potato option. The martini's seemed small, but of excellent quality. Service started slow - 45 minutes to get a second drink and an hour before salad or bread, but very prompt after that. If you want conversation ask for a table/booth towards the back. The bar area can get quite lively and though the décor is beautiful, it's hard surfaced and reflective. 3rd visit and will return frequently."

  • "I took my husband for dinner for his birthday and we had a wonderful time and dinner. The food was wonderful, service exceptional and the ambiance was beautiful! We have found a new favorite!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The steak and bleu cheese fondue was good. The steak was tender and juicy and the salads were fresh and satisfying. However, my husband had a strip steak that was tough and overdone. My filet was also charred more than I'd prefer as well as overdone. It seems like a good place to mingle with friends around the bar and have a drink and some appetizers. Overall, a nice atmosphere but I've had better steak elsewhere in town."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a new waiter,first night, so he was a little off but dinner went fine. My meal was so-so but my husband loved his steak. It was very busy, our meal came out very fast, but then we waited 45 minutes for dessert. He apologized and we were fine with it. Would go back again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Our service was not very good and it was not overly busy so that was a surprise and disappointment. The food was okay but did not WOW us for the price we had to pay. We won't be going back any time soon and would not recommend it to our friends for a night out on the town as they can get the same thing else where in town for less cost."

  • "We revisited the Main St Chophouse to see what the new menu (lower prices) was like. The menu has a limited entree list, with expanded selections in wraps, sandwiches, and burgers. Entrees are accompanied by the house salad and a baked potato (no other options were offered; e.g., veggies or other potato styles). The food was good, although there was a lack of any attempt to present the food in an attractive way. I will be going there for lunch this week, so will have a better idea if the lunch menu is better. I would probably not return here for dinner."

  • "Although I was initially a little shocked by the prices on the menu, the food more than made up for it! The servings were generous and it was so delicious! I am not a big foodie but I was very impressed! Our server was phenomenal and helped explain everything on the menu to us! I would highly recommend this to a couple looking for special night out and not worried about spending a little cash!!"

  • "We found this place by accident on the internet and we are glad we did. Great dining experience. The service and the food are amazing. I had the Veal Chops and would recommend them to everyone.The baked potato could be a meal on it's own, would suggest sharing it."

    Dined on 9/13/2013
  • "We unexpectedly found ourselves in Dubuque and went to Main Street. We live just outside of Chicago and normally go to Gibsons, Ditka's or Chop House for steak, so our expectations were high. Main Street did not disappoint on food or service. Both the chopped salad and ceasar salad were great and served with homemade warm naan and dipping oil. The bone in ribeye was really "bone in" as there was a good foot of bone attached. The ribeye was cooked perfectly and very tasty as was the 12 oz filet mignon. Sides were very generous and delicious--mushrroms,mashed potatoes and mac and cheese. For dessert, we had a piece of strawberry swirled cheescake which lived up to the rest of the meal. Josh, our server was attentive and personable."

  • "Main Street Steak and Chop was wonderful. Friendly people, beautiful atmosphere, lovely decor. Steak and lamb chops were perfectly prepared. Only negative - the baked potato was big enough for three! Attentive staff and great experience overall. Cant wait to go again and try something else on the menu. What a perfect addition to the dining scene in Dubuque! Yum!!"

  • "My husband and I dined here for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We tend to frequent steakhouse type places for these special occasions. I ordered the filet, with the garlic schmear. It was amazing, and worth the money. Best steak I've had in town. We also had the French onion soup, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. All was delicious, but not overly special. The most disappointing part of the meal was the wine selection. While there is a decent selection of wine, there weren't enough options by the glass, and I felt the bottle options were a bit over priced. If better wines were available by the glass, or better prices on the bottles, I think we'd frequent the place more often."

  • "Wanted to try the restaurant out as we were frequent customers of Matt's restaurant back in Galena. Steaks and service were superb. It was definitely worth the trip over from Galena. We will definitely be back for both the food and service. Congratulations on your new restaurant!!!!"
