Table outside was lovely. The fire pits made it so warm and welcoming. Our server was extremely nice and apologized several times for the amount of time it took her to greet us and also for the delay in our drink order. We were very patient during these COVID times. The food was very disappointing compared to the summer of 2019. My fish taco was very dry and my friends steak sandwich was bland and overcooked.

This was our first time at The Mainland and we were glad we went. We found it to be a perfect place to meet up with our daughter for drinks and dinner. We sat under the overhang area which was nice as it kept us a little warmer on a cool nice. Our waitress was excellent - providing us with our drinks in a timely fashion and then taking our order when we were ready. They did have specials- which was helpful since they have a small menu. I had the ahi tuna tacos which were very good. My daughter and husband both had bourbon burgers which were very good as well. French fries were excellent and ample - not to be missed! Music, fire pits, and lights added to the ambiance of the evening. We will definitely return!

Great service and a fun outdoor atmosphere for the beginning of fall. Always fun, always good with a great local beer selection. Only downside is the menu was very limited.

Cute place with a good list beers and not much else. Menu is sandwiches, bar food and a few salads. Period. Could be cleaner but they were mobbed. Food was fair, wait was long and prices were high. You can do much better with other local choices.

We had a great kid free date night! We made our reservation on Open Table ((some ladies in front of us did not and were super rude to the poor hostess)). He seated us quickly, and we had a great evening of drinks and eats. Our server wasn’t around as frequently but it looked like she was half bar tending and half serving, but another server, as he would pass our table, would take anything out of the way. They all worked together well! We will definitely be back!

Mainland is always a favorite with my crew ... vibrant atmosphere, great service and a good selection of quality food. Tables are nicely separated so we feel comfortable. Having the go-carts and adventure area is a plus for when you want to add that to your night!

Out waitress was terrible! She snapped at us and rolled her eyes. I know it was busy but that’s no way to treat a customer no matter the circumstances. Food came out quickly and it was ok.

For starters, I had no idea I would be overlooking an amusement park. Had no idea it was even part of Mainland restaurant. People standing near you watching their kids was not what I had expected. When asked if we could move to the other side was told flat out NO. We had reservations and they had open tables.

Service was bad! 20 minutes to take a drink order! I was already getting my purse to go when waiter finally came over. Not his fault he was working hard! Clearly understaffed! Menu very very limited. Not impressed at all. It was a one and done. But on a good note, they wore masks properly and gloves when food was delivered.

This was our first time going to the Beer Garden Outdoor Restaurant. The food was delicious. We had the chicken empanadas, and the adult grilled cheese with onion rings, which were homemade and perfectly crunchy! we also shared a wedge salad with all the trimmings, which came on a cold plate with heirloom tomatoes and crisp bacon. The candied pecans were homemade and devine! The service was great and the drinks were cold - we were very happy and looking forward to going back.
