Always a great experience! They have a nice outdoor setup including music (sometimes live or a DJ). The food is delicious and our server, Maryanne, is awesome!

We went on a Friday night for dinner and they have a nice set up with a tent and heat lamps (it wasn't very cold yet so can't say if they kept the tent warm or not). The tables were good for socially distancing and everyone wore masks. The menu had a good variety. It did seems bit pricey but I guess it is the Main Line. The waitress seemed a bit annoyed to be working but by the end she warmed up to us and was friendlier.

Group of 8 really enjoyed the outdoor experience at 30 Main. Top notch service. Could have been slightly warmer (more heaters), but very good experience overall. Would definitely go back in this unusual dining environment.

The best value around. Excellent outdoor space with live entertainment. Crab cake was a little different than last time I went but still good. Our friends came from west Chester and said they have nothing like it in that big restaurant town.

This was our first visit to 30 Main with outside dining. They have done a wonderful job with the tents and separations as well as outdoor heating. We felt very safe. Our dinners were excellent. We rarely get the same entree but we both had the Crab and Linguine with Jumbo Lump Crab, tomatoes, corn and fresh parmesan and parsley. It was wonderful. We were there on a Saturday night and they also had live music which was great. We will definitely be back.

. Went with my wife for my birthday. It was in midweek, due to virus customers were sparse. I had a very good seafood pasta, my wife had crab linguini, booth were very good
I would recommend these fine dishes next time you feel tempted to venture out for a good meal. Also, we split a calamari appetizer cooked very well.

We have been there 2 to 3 times a year for the past 3- 4 years and it seem to keep getting better.

Also, the owners' parents were having dinner there, the owners mother stopped at our table introduced herself, spent about 12-15 minutes talking. A very nice person, she also brought us some home made pencell's she (made) not on the menu. Nice restaurant and people.

We came here for our anniversary and had great service. Eunice was fantastic and an all-around help when it came to recommendations on their menu. Plus she was doing all the jobs, from seating, to taking the order, to bussing everything. We ate outside where we felt comfortable in partitioned areas. The food was phenomenal as well. Garlic bread was a nice surprise appetizer. And their crab cakes have the most crab I've ever eaten in one sitting. Overall a great experience!

Great food, great service, great music (they had a live band) and a great atmosphere... what more could anyone want? We particularly enjoyed the outdoor dining option, you can tell the owners put a lot of time, money and thought into the outdoor set-up to ensure their customers can dine with a cool ambiance, and most importantly safely with peace of mind!

the appetizers are fantastic, we enjoyed too many and hardly touched our meal but that was not because we did not try, the main meal was very good. The server and people there could not have been any better, everyone was very nice and welcoming. It was very much like ..welcome to the family, please stay for dinner...than the good food keeps coming and coming, each bite better than the last...We tried to eat a dessert (which tasted divine) but a bite was all we could do, the potions are large. You get your money's worth.

Great experience overall from the service to the food. You must start with the Award Winning Mussels, which come in a choice of 3 sauces. The crab cake had no filler whatsoever. I will be back.

I so want to rave about 30 Main because I want to support this local place. The issue is always the same...the front of the house. When we arrived they couldn’t find our open table reservation so the only table they would offer us is in the back next to the restrooms. It was drafty and we just wanted a booth. I got up and went to speak to the person that seated us who was ridiculously rude. Those tables were for people with reservations! There were only 2 occupied at the time. Next surprise was the valentines menu on the day after with no exceptions. Really? My friend couldn’t get a sandwich or a plain green salad. Our actual server was very nice but could not really change anything. Next we were told our dinners were ready just after we were served our soups and apps. Ugh. Visions of our dinners under the heat lamps. But hey take your time they said. I really hope they get their act together. We need a local place with simple food.

Valentines Day. Seated by window and it was absolutely freezing, so I wore my coat. My appetizer was inventive and good, her main, the seafood risotto was too salty to eat, sent it back. I was done eating where her replacement, seared tuna, which was fine, arrived. The waitress was fine, the server might have been able to fog a mirror, maybe. Very disappointing.

EXTREMELY salty food and I usually like salt but wow overkill on everything.. fried calamari over fried to the point of crispy burnt. Kids hamburgers horrid and disgustingly soaked through. Service was good and should be expected considering that there were very few diners.

Will not go again.

Service was slow, unattentive and not very friendly. Party of 6 and only 2 out of the party enjoyed the food. The waitress did remove the drinks from the bill, but it did not change the poor experience.
