I had purchased a Groupon offer to 30 Main and used it to take my wife and daughter out to dinner. It was our first time there and we had a wonderful experience. The food was simply excellent! The seafood was fresh and delicious and the home made lasagna was just like Mama’s. Also you have to try one of their Mac and cheese dishes, truly the best!

30 Main is our reliable and local pub, with good food, reasonable prices and a friendly atmosphere. Also, I am comfortable eating here on my own when my husband isn't around, and never feel awkward. That to me is always a good sign of a welcoming place to which I'd return.

Easter Brunch. Second year. Food great. Service good. Only negative - regular coffee cold, decaf warm. Maybe the urns were malfunctioning? Never found out sorry to say. Will probably go again next year or may try another option. Never been disappointed for regular dining. Also went there for a book club dinner - excellent.

My family ate here for the first time over Easter weekend. The food was horrible. My burger was barely edible the bacon was burnt to a crisp and hard as a rock. My husband's lamb dinner was poor and the potatoes were undercooked. My son's steak was overcooked.
I would not recommend going here especially for the price. The website and Open Table reviews are DECEIVING!
Also, this is not a family friendly restaurant for young children. WE had to ask them to change the channel on the TV because of the content for our 10 and 7 year old children.

I love this restaurant. The staff is so courteous and go out of their way to serve you. I also like the live music artists they choose. The music wasn’t too loud that you couldn’t still talk with your table mates. And they have a nice menu selection. I was very pleased with the garden salad and mini crab cakes. I look forward to coming here again when business calls.

My wife & I had a nice mid-week dinner in March, thanks in part to a Groupon gift from our family. I enoyed a 7+ layer lasagna (chef's mother's recipe) that was delicious while my wife had a good lobster ravioli dish. The philo dough wrapped Brie & raspberry drizzled with honey was awesome.

Food was very tasty as usual and well-prepared. Server was great. However, very disappointed with the new large-plate portions that appear to have shrunken in size significantly since the advent of the new small/large plate menu. A la carte add on choices could profit by adding more healthful vegetable choices. Prices are quite hefty when one tallies up sufficient combinations of a la carte selections so as not to leave the restaurant hungry. By the way, the new policy of charging for bread sticks and no longer offering gratis rolls with large-plate meals seems pound foolish.

I've had better experiences at 30 Main. They were extremely crowded and the service reflected that. My friend's entree didn't arrive until I had almost finished mine. Our server said another server took my friend's entree when he/she shouldn't have. They did take the price of that late entree off the bill. The food was good and I'll go back but if this happens again, they're off my list.

I always order the pork tenderloin, and as usual, it was great! The sauce seemed different than before, so they may try to keep the standards fresh by changing little things along the way. My date enjoyed his meal as well, Mac&Cheese with pulled pork, then the burger with onion rings...he eats a lot.

New Year's Eve at 30 Main is the place to be! $60 price fix menu with your choice of incredible salads,yummy soup, fantastic appetizers, and outstanding entrees. Come on over, they are still serving dinner. Two floors of entertainment, a band and a DJ. $35 charge for an all night open bar. Valet parking. It is a win win situation.

Pretty bad all around. The service was chaotic, no one knowing what food items went to which table. Which is odd, because it was a set menu. Plus, it wasn't all that busy for New Year's Eve. The food was just okay. Went upstairs after dinner, where they had a band whose so-so singer was also out of tune most of the time; and the music was not very good. Everyone was expecting to dance. But you couldn't dance the music. The DJ downstairs wasn't much better. Decided to leave early, and ring in the new year at home. Very disappointed.

My son and I visited 30 Main Bistro on Halloween after his tennis lesson. He loves salmon and eats it for the protein and health benefits for training in his sport. This restaurant offers various selections with salmon. He and I both had salmon(excellently done)! After lunch, we had tea, which was a Mighty Leaf selection(flavorful teas)! To top it off, the owner’s mother brought out cupcakes for Halloween! I would definitely return to this restaurant and would recommend this place to someone else!

My friends and I always choose 30 Main for our get together's. We meet about every 3 to 4 months during the early part of the week it is usually not too crowded so we can sit , chat and catch up. Our dinners were delicious and the service excellent. Mary Ann was our server and she was attentive but not intrusion. She let us enjoy our catch up conversation. We arrived at 6 p.m and didn't leave until a little after 9. It is always a treat to be at this Restaurant!!
