Great outdoor dining. Enjoyed our meal and the band...both were good. Could still talk at table though it was a bit hard. Band took breaks.

The food at 30 Main was outstanding. The octopus was up there with Dmitri’s. The pizza was delicious with a crispy bottom even in the middle. The dough was a perfect combo of crispy & doughy. Everything we had was fantastic. The prices are reasonable. There was live music that was entertaining and not too loud. We could still have a conversation without screaming. I’m looking forward to returning.

We loved the relaxed atmosphere— Susan our waitress, was very polite and kind- Mike the owner came by to say hello. It was our first time and it’s really a gem in the heart of Berwyn. We had live music from a Grateful Dead band that we enjoyed. The outdoor relaxed atmosphere really uplifted us. Food was fresh and hearty portions. Will be back!

We are from NY so we really didn't know where to go but just picked this place randomly because we were nearby and they had reservation for our group. WOW did we score. It was one of our highlights of our mini trip to PA. The food was OUTSTANDING, the waitress Susan was FABOULOUS and the live music was a bonus! What a great way to end our trip. There is no doubt I will be back!

The seafood pasta dish that I ordered was incredible salty. I don't like sending food back, but I think a lot of people would have. Plus it wasn't a good value at the price they were charging.
The service was good inside, but later we went outside to listen to the band. The woman working the bar outside was just plain rude.

We love it here! The food and drinks are always amazing! The staff is friendly and really go above and beyond to create a relaxed and fun environment. The ownership has outdone themselves with Covid mitigation efforts and its immediately obvious how seriously they value customer safety. It’s the go to spot for live music, delicious food, perfectly prepared cocktails, and friendly staff! Definitely recommend!

Went here for dinner on Mother’s Day and it was absolutely amazing. The staff were so attentive and kind. The owner, Mike, even came to check on us which I really appreciate. They made my mother in-law’s special day extra special! THANK YOU 30 Main!

Very disappointing! The restaurant had overbooked the reservations unfortunately so we ended up waiting about 45 minutes for a table. The owner sat us at the bar to wait, which was very nice, but the bar staff was so overwhelmed that it took 30 minutes to be acknowledged for a drink order.
When seated at our table, our waitress was very sweet but clearly overworked. She took our food order promptly, but never came back to ask if we need something to drink! It wasn't until we were finished with our meal did she come back and ask if we wanted something to drink.
The food was good and the prices were reasonable though.

We have been regulating reservations, due to the weather we made a call to use inside only. We shut off reservations, online ordering, posted notices on the website, texted and or called everyone we could. We asked reservations to be shut off at 5pm. They jumped by 60 from 4pm-5pm. Cancelations also let new reservations in. We are working on a solution to the problem. We ask all customers to respond to our requests for confirmation so that we can inform them of potential issues in advance.

Took about 30 minutes for the server to take our order. Got a drink in about another 30 minutes. Server never delivered the other drink. After 2 hours, the server apologized for failing to put our order in. We left, although the server did comp the drink she did bring. I can't comment on the food, because we didn't eat anything. Drink was well prepared. Menu looked inviting: several options. Prices were a little high for what was offered, but typical for the Main Line. Place was very loud, but there was a live band. I will not return because we had a bad experience. However, they could have just had a bad night.

The weekend was definitely a hurdle. We blocked online ordering, reservations & were still short staffed. Due to labor shortages we have been listing on our website to reserve early. The 7-8pm time slot on graduation and mothers day weekend is insane. We are doing the best we can to regulate. Unfortunately 20% of reservations do not show, review of the data 60 customers took those cancelations within 1 hour of the desired time jamming us. There is no excuse. We are adjusting as fast as we can.

We made and confirmed reservations outside. There was live music—very good but incredibly LOUD where they sat us directly in front of the band and speakers. We moved to another outdoor table but server was overwhelmed and she suggested we might get faster service indoors. Indoor server told us she had no table available. We were unhappy. In swooped the owner who made it right and more. She opened a private room for us, got a backup server to come in, gave us a complimentary appetizer.

The food was truly amazing. The fish the owner suggested to me was, as described, PERFECT. Everyone else was happy with their order. We had wine suggested by the server and it was excellent. We even bought more the next day back home. Topped it off with a petite dessert of homemade pizzelle. Fantastic!

Thank you so much for making this a great experience. We’ll be back!

30 Main has become one of our go-to local eateries to bring guests. Some of our family are picky eaters but 30 Main has something for everyone, and the chefs and staff are all great. The family who owns it are frequently out there with the staff, helping out and checking up that everything is going right and their guests are well taken care of--always a good thing to see. We also love seeing the live musicians they bring in frequently.

There were four of us there for dinner. Three of us really enjoyed their meals. I had the crab linguine and it was ok. The calamari appetizer was delicious as were the mussels. My husband loved the lamb chops and both fish dishes were very good.

We always enjoy this lively neighborhood spot— the quality of the food and the service are outstanding. Very varied menu with something for everyone. We had wings as an appetizer, really delicious. Pizzas are great too. The owner has taken steps over and above to assure a safe dining experience, whether inside or out. We’ve done both, and hope that the outside area will continue into the warmer months!

Food was good; the chef's *amuse bouche* hummus and garlic bread was exceptional!
Very friendly staff and good service; only downside was that the outdoor dining was under a tent in the back parking lot - thanks, COVID.

Wonderful dinner in the tent outside with heaters on high. Acoustic singer was nice entertainment. Service was great, recommendations spot on, cocktail very good. Muscles were awesome as was calamari to start. Wings really good as well. Finally, the Branzino entree was perfectly prepared. We’ll be back!

The service right from the start was excellent. Good cocktails and a nice tray of garlic toast and home made hummus. The salads were great as were the entrees. More than enough to take home for lunch the next day. Very clean and safe with lots of Covid measures in place.
