Diner Reviews
  • "I have been enjoying the Main Pub's food, drink, clientele, and staff for almost ten years now. The menu is A+, the beer and wine selection is top notch, and the service is second to none. Bartenders Ron and Ashley are standouts in the industry. The musical entertainment is some of the best you will find between NYC and Boston hands down. The owner, Keith, is a gentleman and one of the most welcoming, honest, and sincere guys you will ever find heading up an entity of this kind. Memories are certainly made at The Main Pub with each and every visit."

  • "Was very pleasantly surprised by the Main Pub. We went in a group of 4 for Valentine's Day, purely because it was close by and they had availability. They definitively rose to the occasion and impressed- excellent food, great ambiance, great service. The restaurant is split into the bar and dining room, each with its own ambiance and crowd of people. It's a great place to take a date or group of friends!"

  • "We love coming to The Main Pub Restaurant. There is a lot of variety on the menu, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is fun and energetic. With three separate rooms, you have the opportunity for a quiet meal, meal with a group of friends, or a vibrant bar experience. The Main Pub has it all!"

  • "I've been to this restaurant once for lunch with 2 other people. Lunch was so good for all 3 of us that I had to invite 5 other people there for dinner. The food is terrific, especially for such a large, diverse menu! Everyone at the table raved about the food! I will be going back there again very soon!"

  • "The Main Pub is a great place to go for fun food and great music. This is our go to place when we want pub food and a band. The best part is that the restaurant is separate enough from the bar that it's not too noisy even when the live music is on."

  • "Service was good as always - but I think the waiter was alitlte taken back - as I had surgery on my left hand and elbow the day before and was all wrapped up due to surgery when we came in for 11 on Thursday night - I think the waiter thought I was beaten up by my honey do and seemed alittle hesitant while taking our food and drink order?????? Not sure if you get a lot of business from Manchester Hospital as its around the corner - but my surgery was planned and not a surprise beating from my loved one!! Maybe if the regular waitress was there - but we didn't see her!! the fried pickles were undone - could of cooked a few more minutes before bringing them out."

  • "The two things I liked were the fried pickles which I had never eaten before. I also especially liked that the salmon they serve is wild caught and not farm-raised."

  • "I was very excited to see a new menu with hopes that this great pub was reaching out to a new dinner spot.. The appetizers were great but the entrees not so much. I would definitely come back for drinks and the apps. They should stick with the great pub food because they do that well"

  • "I have been to the Main Pub many times for lunch, dinner, just a beer, or dessert. The food is good and comforting, always enjoyable. The staff is always very pleasant and accommodating. On the days when there is no band playing the noise level is low to moderate."

  • "Quiet lunchtime, service was ok, needed more attended at table sometimes, example more water served , had to ask, food was just ok, one person in group did not care for for chili served with saltine crackers???? I had fish taco's excellent. Mom and Dad did broccoli soup, they liked that. Overall just ok, really did like the atmosphere, and would maybe check out other things on the menu, give it another shot!

  • "Had the best fish tacos ever! Bob, our waiter was not only attentive, informative and friendly, he was hysterically funny. Price was right on target; atmosphere was great. Looking forward to going back. Did I mention how good my clam chowder was? Excellent, full of clams. They have a full bar and it's Martini city - a wide variety of martini's, seasonal and favorites. Parking isn't the best, but there's plenty of street parking. The Main Pub in Manchester is definitely worth the trip!"
