    I was really excited to try this place, but was not really that impressed. The restaurant itself had a cool atmosphere, but the food was just...OK. Enjoyed our appetizers and they had a large selection of beer/drinks. Just too far from home for us to make the trip here for mediocre food (dinner). Would be a great place for drinks and apps though! Seems more like a late night hangout than a place for a nice dinner.

    I had not been to the Main Pub in many years and it was a nice treat to return. The food was very good and the staff was excellent. Our waiter was attentive in the right way. My husband and I had the 12 ounce cut of Prime Rib and it was delicious. It was very generous in size. My daughter enjoyed the Caesar salad with grilled salmon. The salad was very nicely seasoned. My son had an appetizer of chicken tenders and fries - very good.

    I wanted simply a nice, friendly, neighborhood bar with cold beer and great burgers, etc. This place as perfect. I enjoyed having dinner there very much. Service was excellent, relaxed and friendly. Never had deep fried pickles before so that was a great first that I'll make a second sometime. I was travelling and for one night didn't want to deal with the downtown atmosphere of Hartford, parking and all and finding this place a few miles away made for a great relaxing evening. I'll go back sometime when I'm in town.

    Good food, good service. I will go back. My only complaint was the lack of parking. Their private lot in the back is very small, and on-street parking fills up quickly too. Most nearby business parking lots have signs that they will tow. I had to drive around for almost 10 minutes before snagging a spot in their small lot, when a space became available.

    I have drivine by the Main Pub many times and always wondered what it was like. My wife and I decided to give it a try we were glad we did. We sat out in their sunroom which was very nice. The bar area features Live Entertainment beginning sometime after 9:00. I am glad we went. We will be going back.

    We were a group of six and none of us had ever been to the Main Pub so we came with an open mind and were not disappointed. Being an Open Table member, the owner, Keith, came right over and introduced himself to us which was a very nice touch. The food was delicious, starting with the mussel appetizer, right down to the fried pickles. For our main course, we all had different sandwiches which were outstanding. What a great place to go to relax and unwind with good friends. We will definitely be back.
