    This is our 3rd visit to Main Street Grill and a big disappointment after two fantastic dinners on our previous visits. I don't know whether it was because it was Valentine weekend (although the restaurant was busy it wasn't packed) or if the chef has changed but sad to say we won't be going back after this experience. We shared the spring rolls to start which were ok but a bit bland, only rescued by the sweet chili sauce. I had medallions of lamb for my main course but the medallions turned out to be small strips of lamb, the garlic mash didn't taste of garlic and the mint jus didn't taste of mint. My husband chose the Alfredo with shrimp. It was filling but unexciting and at $24.95 very overpriced for a pasta dish. We were looking forward to a first class meal but the food was lacking in flavor and sorry to say the evening was an expensive let-down.

    My nine-year-old twins and I dressed up and headed out for a fancy dinner. We did not have a reason to celebrate other than to show off their new clothes and to get a chance to act right in public. We were treated as if we were having a special occasion and I was very pleased with the service and the food.

    I chose Main Street Grill for a recruitment meeting. When I arrived I was escorted back to the "safe"! It was the perfect place to enjoy conversation and still hear the great music. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The staff was never intrusive into the conversation and was very well trained. Thank you!

    I dine at Main Street mostly for business, but it is a very nice place for the wife and I to go have a very nice dinner. The soups are always excellent, food always very good, and the service top notch. Never really had a bad experience at Main Street Grill.

    We went to Main Street Grille for NYE 2015 and we were blown away by the experience. I think we scraped our plates clean on every course and I had to exercise self control to not lick my plate on the tiramisu. The waiter was friendly and the service was quick. We payed a premium for it being NYE but ti was well worth the price.

    Have been to MSG many times, always one of our favorite places. The Monica Salad and Filet Elizabeth are always fantastic and well worth going for. Saturday, four of the five of us ordered the Poisson Des Saints; flavors, sauce, etc were all very good, but fish was overcooked. Noise level was also higher than I remember. Bottom line - good, will probably go back, but this used to be head and shoulders above a lot of other restaurants, and this time it was not.

    Our waitress gave us our menus and did not come back for at least 10 to 15 minutes. We had to ask someone to get her. After she brought our food she never came back to check on us. We wanted to order another drink, but she ever returned. We had to get the manager to get the drink. This is the second time we have been here and both times the service was lousy. The first time it was a special occasion and that was not even acknowledged. We gave it a second chance and it was just the same. Food was very good but the wait staff ruined the experience. We won't try it again.

    because it's always a great experience. The filet and oysters were fabulous. But the most notable thing about Main Street is the friendly, excellent service. Jessica and Leslie served us. My companion was over an hour late due to business requirements, but they let us enjoy the evening even after everyone else had left the restaurant. Quality food, quality service, always a quality time. main Street Grill is truly a treasure of Old Town Round Rock!

    Food 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.

    Main 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.

    I 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.

    Was 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.

    We 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.

    We 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.

    The 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.

    We 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.

    In an old historic Bank building, they use the bank vault as a wine cellar with a couple private tables in there. Went there for the first time on my birthday and had a very enjoyable dinner.

    We 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.

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!

    My 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.
