    We had tried to eat at 30 Main for months but the weather kept getting in our way. When offered the opportunity for an impromptu dinner, we jumped at the chance to try 30 Main. We were not unhappy, but the restaurant is clearly trying to be too many things all at once. On a slow Wednesday night, my wife and I expected to have a quiet, cozy dinner. Except that the live music started at 7:00 and we had to change tables so we could talk. The good news was that we had our pick of tables. The small plates were interesting but there was more creativity in the decoration than in the substance. In all, it was less than satisfying meal. It would be fine if we lived in the neighborhood, but not worth a drive from Malvern

    I went with my friend the other night for the first time, I loved it so much I brought my husband last night. They had Ddendyl Hoyt singing who is currently on the TV program the Voice ! This time I tried the crab bisque which was spectacular and the Kansas City strip steak, This is such as fun place with great food, I cant believe I just discovered it.

    Very attractive, well appointed restaurant suitable for almost any type get-together. Limited, but adequate menu. No specials mentioned by server - don't know if they usually have them or not . Jamaican jerk scallops tasty but a bit pricy {$15 for 5). Filet was cooked to specifications but mushroom sauce topping tasted canned - disappointing. No bread/rolls - what you order is what you get. Warrants a second visit later in the evening - looks too appealing to be just average.

    My husband and I had dinner here this past weekend and we enjoyed the food. I had the filet and my husband had the ribs. We enjoyed it, however we were not blown away as some of the reviews had suggested. The service was great, and they had a band playing when we arrived (8:30PM) which was very pleasant. If you are looking for a good meal but nothing special, I would recommend this restaurant. Also, the parking here is difficult, particularly when there is snow all over the streets. we had to park a few blocks away.

    Very much enjoyed our dinner with the special Valentines Day menu. We were treated to delicious food and service (Imogene) in this well appointed restaurant. We were pleased to meet the owner, Michael, who stopped by our table to say hello. Live music several nights a week, free parking out back, and great location right across from the Berwyn train station. We'll definitely return!

    My wife & I recently went to 30 Main for a romantic dinner. Heard good things, but I must admit I was disappointed. It was a busy weekend night I realize, but the service was spotty (too long for drink refills, clearing my plate when I wasn't finished, etc). It boils down to not feeling very well attended to by our waitresses. Although nice, they seemed to treat us more as a transaction than with a personal touch. Add to that the fact that the bill reflected a price tag that would certainly make me EXPECT proper service, and I was a little put off by 30 Main. Plus, it wouldn't hurt (especially on a weekend night) to have the waitstaff dress up a little. Sneakers, black jeans, and disheveled hair didn't translate to the figure on the bill.

    Valentine's Day 2014 dinner date 30 Main was absolutely amazing, a little $$$, but you get what you pay for. The food was top notch and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend 30 Main for couples celebrating a special occasion. The hostess was so pleasant and when our waiter was dinner come to the table immediately upon us taking our seat, the manager came over and introduced herself and got our drinks. Overall the service was superb. The heart shaped white chocolate raspberry cheesecake was to die for. The entire was amazing.

    We Heard there was a new Chef at 30 main and wanted to try new things in Berwyn as we live in the area, WOW!!! we had the prime rib egg rolls which were so delicious, then for entrees, the crab cakes were to die for so much better than the previous recipe and snapper which both were plated beautifully , we didn't even want to touch the plate, it seemed that they made the right choice with the new chef, with everything presented perfectly and executed on point. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine selection. Even all the deserts are now all made in the restaurant. GREAT JOB 30 Main.... we will be back very soon!!!!

    First time at 30 Main for brunch. We split the Smoked Salmon Plate to start with. The salmon could stand to be a slightly higher quality. Plus, tomato slices were not included - which we feel are a must with smoked salmon. We had the Wild Mushroom Omelet and the Honey Baked Ham Benedict for our meals. Both were very good (other than I ordered Sour Dough bread and they gave me wheat). The service was outstanding. We were there just after they opened so it was pretty empty - which was great for a quiet, relaxing brunch. We'll be back, for sure!

    This was the 2nd time we went to 30 Main. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio which was terrible. We ordered fried cheese steak dumplings to share which were over cooked and dry and tasted fishy. For entrees, we both ordered Dory's chicken which we had when they first opened and loved. Unfortunately, not only was the portion much smaller but it was mediocre tasting at best. To make matters worse, we were seated near a group of the extremely loud and obnoxious guests. We could barely have a conversation. The total for this small meal for 2 was $160 excluding tip. We generously tipped the waitress, however, because she couldn't have been nicer. This is probably the last time we will dine there unless the food and wine options get better.

    It's tough to find somewhere to eat at 10 pm in the suburbs. 30 Main not only had it's entire menu available, but they had live music to boot! The service was very friendly, cocktails were well made and the mussels and the tuna tartare were really good. Fun atmosphere and the gal playing guitar/singing in the bar was the icing on the cake.

    My first visit was as part of a group of 16 women. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us even going so far as to give us separate checks. We were so impressed and grateful for their determination to ensure that we had a good experience, that two of us went back with our husbands. Again, we had a great lunch. I had the seafood risotto and the rice was cooked perfectly. I was so surprised at the amount of scallops, crab, shrimp and lobster that was in and on the risotto. That dish would cost twice as much in a more pretentious place but I doubt that it would be any better at twice the price.

    Went for the first time for dinner on a Sat night. The menu is fabulous. Lots of great things to pick from! My date and I each had a salad to start off with - 30 Main Wedge & the Crab & Avocado Salad. For our entrees we had a nightly special (veal) and the Seafood Risotto. All the food was all outstanding - including the rolls & butter! The service was very good - especially considering how busy all the servers were. The place was very 'lively' - lots of large tables. As other reviews mention, it was a little on the loud side - and got even louder after 8:30 when the live music started - but nothing that would keep us from coming back on a Fri or Sat night in the future. We can't wait to return! Next time we plan on saving room for dessert!

    We loved the ambiance and the host was very attentive. The menu had nice selections. The salad was fresh and delicious. The Mac and cheese was hard on top and thick inside. The sweet mashed potatoes were delicious as well as the fries. The sliders were good. The biggest problem was the roast beef sandwich. The meat was tough because it seemed microwaved with the cheese stuck to it like a rock. Also the gravy that came with it was way to salty. Sorry to say but they lost our business.
