Stopped at MC on the way to the Super Bowl for a quick lunch. Found the restaurant on the Open Table app. It was hard to find as there is only an LED scroll sign outside that doesn't always show the restaurant name. The restaurant is hidden in an office building with a home builder gallery. I was disappointed that it wasn't what I had in my mind for Texas BBQ ambiance, but that was my only disappointment. The food was great. Had the nachos appetizer, brisket sandwich and my buddy had the sampler platter. Please add a permanent sign so people know you are there. You're located just off the 45 Freeway and cars passing by have no idea.

Didn't get to try it because couldn't locate it. There was no signage from the feeder road. I had to select another restaurant. I was disappointed because I was excited after reading the menu.

The food is really good so when they run out of your favorites, disappointment happens. My first time eating the wings and Mac and Cheese I have in love. The second time not so much.

Service was great, was seated really quickly, but was very disappointed in the menu, having a picky eater for a mom, We were given a small one page menu with hardly anything to choose from. Wanting to take her and my grandmother somewhere new, I was embarrassed by the menu. And confused as to why there was a bigger menu advertised online, through the link I was sent in my email after making the reservation. So I expected to be given that menu. Love Main Street. But very disappointed.

Went for Mother's Day with lunch reservation but arrived to find out only brunch selections available, which was not advertised on their website or open table. Service was good, but food slightly overpriced for quality and portion size.

Special Valentine's Day fixed menu. The beef filet was unbelievably tender (sous vide) and delicious. The scallops were really quite good ... hard to get dry packed diver scallops at the store so it is a treat to have them. The salad was interesting and I would have used fresh moz instead of feta but it was still very good. The desert was the weakest part but still not bad. I have to say that when I drove up I was not expecting the level of food. Overall = food excellent, price a little high, service average (but there really wasn't much to it since it was fixed).

We do find them over priced, but it is a nice place that's close to home and never crowed. Our main complaint has been that in the evenings, even wtih a small crowd, the wait staff is lacking- missing water refills (walking by our table to fill others and missing our empty glasses), not good communication in general from the staff- we waited a long time with no update, refills, etc. Even though I said I would recommend to a friend, I would mention the pricing for small portions and the evening wait staff issues.

We ate at MAIN on a Saturday night. The black-eyed pea hummus was very good, as were our entrees, the meatloaf and the shrimp and grits. Service was attentive and friendly.

But there were only about 6 tables filled on a Saturday night -- that's not a very good sign for the future of this restaurant. I think the problem is the strange location inside the design center for a model home showcase. Not exactly where you expect to have a restaurant serving high class fare.

Food is always awesome. Especially shrimp and grits. Live music is always very good too.
