The Main Pub Restaurant
The Main Pub prides itself on being a place where all can feel welcome. A place to meet co-workers or hold a party to date night and family dinners. We feel everyone will find something at The Main Pub that will make them look forward to returning.
I always come in with my honey-dew !!
but this past Sunday -
my boys were in town so I introduced them to the "Main Pub", they love those IPA's and tried a few that they can not get in Rhode Island or in Massachusetts
Very nice ambiance and great food, service was a but awkward as the waitress seemed rushed. Overall would love to make this a weekly go to!
Jera was outstanding !!! I had the most enjoyable waitress she made the evening extra special
Extremely slow service. Our food didn’t come out for nearly an hour after we ordered, even though others were getting their food. The waiter never came and gave an explanation for the wait, but we figured he forgot to put the order in, especially since he came and told us they were out of brisket a half an hour after we ordered. The restaurant was dark and my grandmother asked for another candle for the table and the waiter said “Umm, I’ll see if I can find one” but never came back with one. I ended up getting one off of an empty table. Very disappointed.
Always enjoy coming here. Comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Food never disappoints.
Other than the salads showing up after the main course, it was a very nice meal. Prices are reasonable, the waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and drink options.
Our local go-to for both lunch and dinner. An underrated gem in Manchester.
Fun and delicious brunch! Just a few minutes off the main drag, and so much better than the usual tourist stops. Excellent pub fries and burgers, too.
My main complaint is about the parking! I had to drive around several times waiting for people to leave to get a spot. The lot is tiny for the restaurant!!! If there were clear signs of my options, I would’ve taken any tips for overflow parking. Wings are always good here!
Always a good time. Fun and tasty pub menu, well executed. We enjoy the music, the ambience,the service.
Tried Ron's lemonade off of the cocktail menu, for the first time as I usually stick with my white Russians with Tito s ...wasn't I glad I decided to be daring... delicious and just the right amount of tartness!!
Service was not great I asked the gentleman who brought our food out for more water as we had not seen our waitress in quite awhile. He told me our waitress had to get it. Our burger and fries were really greasy.
Fish tacos were so delicious
I went in again for another plate of some of the best comfort food in the area.
This outing I opted for simple but wicked tasty, Baja Fish Tacos deep-fried cod, pickled cabbage, tomato, queso, chipotle sauce, served with cilantro rice with a side of guacamole. This one is easy, best fish tacos I have eaten in Connecticut.
Back that up with a single order of the Mango Habanero wings, spicy, tasty, super flavors and a Night Shift Brewing Rickey Weisse to wash it all down. Reminded me of a trip to the islands!
As usual, I recommend this establishment for anyone wanting to have fun food, great beer and drinks and superb service.
You can mix several small plates if you have a crowd and make things really interesting or just go in and shoot from the hip.
This far, everything that I have sampled here has been out of this world, the atmosphere is great and the staff top notch!
Check it out, you will be coming back if you do!
Food, service, and ambience were great. A very comfortable feel, like your local hangout were the food is great and everyone is friendly.
I wanted to go out and have comfort food and decided to visit the Main Pub in Manchester.
I used frequent the establishment and always enjoyed the food and people there.
I arrived and my server was Mike hustled me up a tall Stormy Night which was absolutely super, great flavor with a nice kick at the finish.
I then ordered the Brewben Melt Burger and asked Mike about having the Mac and Cheese instead of the standard fries, he recommended it highly and described how the dish was made with three cheeses in a VERY creamy sauce finished with cream to keep that smooth creamy palate while keeping the cheese flavor not to overpowering.
I received my food and was very pleased! The Mac and Cheese was sublime and exactly as described by my server. Servers with a thorough understanding of the food, drinks and deserts offered is a sign of a really well operating restaurant and this place is that.
The Brewben Melt was cooked to perfection, exactly as I had asked for doneness and super juicy with superb beef flavor. No doubt they mix their ground burger themselves because the flavor and juiciness was spot on.
When I had finished I was quite full but was very interested in brining some desert home with my so I ordered a Cheesecake of the month, Traditional Cheesecake with Strawberries on top and a slice of the Chocolate Guinness Cake to go.
Let me tell you that the cheesecake was great but the Chocolate Guinness cake was the absolute bomb! So, so good that I recommend that if you are too full to take on desert, order a slice of this and take it home. Truly a super confection with flavor out of the park!
To close I would recommend the Main Pub highly, they have Superb Food, Drinks, Beer and Deserts to die for.
If comfort food is on the radar, this is the place in the Manchester/Hartford area and is easily worth the drive just to have a drink and comfort food like homemade!
Noise level had a higher rating only bcuz we were there to see a band play. The food was great. I had the chicken philly sandwich. They surprisingly had a great craft beer tap list. Service was terrific, very attentive and fast. Would definitely go back.
Fri 9/13 - had reservations for 6 but 8 showed, accommodated no problem. Parking tight but Fri night. Great beers on tap.
Didn't really care for the Pub fries. They were half cooked.
Hidden gem, try it once and you definitely go back again
We hadn’t gone to The Main Pub in years but we were going out with our daughter and son in law. They had a gift card. We were welcomed very nicely - I had made a reservation and our table was ready for us. Food was delicious - we all enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent - very friendly waiter. Decorated very nicely - we would have loved to sit outside but it was raining. We will return soon.
Good food and good service. No worries
The pretzels were awesome, especially with the maple/mustard dipping sauce
Awesome surprised the hostess Nikki
One of my favorite spots to come on a nice summer evening and sit out on the patio. The food is always consistent and the wait staff is always attentive.
Friendly and accommodating service. Fish tacos delicious. Definitely returning for another great meal!
I have no additional notes to add to this review. Thx
Went with a group of eight and the server got us all our drinks very quickly. Once we were ready to order the food came out nice and quick and was excellent. Most of us got burgers or sandwiches and I have to say it was one of the best burgers I have had in a while. I tried the pubber burger and it was awesome with the bacon onion jam they put on it. Excellent extensive selection of craft beers as well. We will definitely be returning.
Food and service seemed slow for a less busy time. Food was good just slow to arrive.
Great burgers. Wonderful beer selection. Wish tv was not tuned to Fox. It would have been nice to eat and not have Trump joining us for dinner. Maybe just go with sports.
I love coming here in the summer and sitting outside on their beautiful patio on a nice day/evening. The waitstaff is always friendly and attentive and they have great food!
The ambience of this place is great! Between outside seating, sun room seating and inside seating - this place is comforting in all areas. Fresh flowers on all tables was a nice touch!
Wait staff was pleasant and very attentive and food was great - nice portions, great flavors and not badly priced!
The food was average but the deserts were out of this world. Staff was attentive and very helpful. The manager checked on us several times. Would go again.
Great meal sitting outside on the patio. The outdoor space was much bigger than I expected. We will be back all summer!
This has become my favorite go-to place and love sitting out on their patio. Service is always excellent and I have never had a bad meal yet.
We had a great experience celebrating a Birthday on Saturday evening. The service was great, super attentive and everyone loved the food!
The food is amazing and the beer selection definitely A+. We were seated in a semi-private location for our special occasion which was great because that limited the noise level. The only problem was that the mixed drinks were over priced. One Manhattan costed $14 which is overwhelmingly overpriced. This place is great for food but not for specialty drinks. Stick to the beer menu.
The Main Pub is a fun place to eat, with a lively vibe, attentive service and great craft beer choices and mostly delicious food. We love eating at our local Pub! :) <3
We always enjoy coming here for a casual meal and looking forward to sitting on the patio this summer. We have never had a bad meal yet and the wait staff have always been pleasant and efficient. Paige, our waitress that evening, was quick and attentive.
Main Pub is a fun place to eat and have a pop or two. Great homemade food, great service and a cool atmosphere!
