The Main Pub has a good menu, good beer selection and is a relaxing place to dine. The service is good and, in my experience at least, they do not rush you out, like some restaurants do.

It's difficult to give a poor review to a place you have enjoyed before. But tonight only two of the four entrees ordered were prepared satisfactorily or better. And even though there was an offer to replace those that weren't cooked correctly, there was no offer to adjust the bill accordingly. When you go out for dinner together, you expect everyone to eat together, not half as expected, and half 15-20 minutes later.

Disappointing to recommend a place, and then have it fall flat on it's face.

We had a very nice meal before heading to a show. The atmosphere here is always nice and tonight was no exception. My wife and I each started with scilian sausage soup which is made with sweet sausage. It was served piping hot and was very flavorful. My wife went with the flatbread as her main course. It has a very thin crust and is served with a very tasty sauce, spinach, carmilized onions, chicken and cheese combination. Not sure how they get everything so hot while not burning the crust. Very very tasty would have it again. I went the special salad which tonight was a robust salad served with chicken and a honey mustard salad. Love the food that the kitchen puts out here. The service is always great here and tonight was no exception. Can't wait to get back here. Thanks for a great start to our evening.

We loved the feel of this place. It’s warm and welcoming. If you want hearty fare this is the place to come. Excellent meals. The shepherd’s pie was absolutely delicious (no need to add salt or pepper) as was the beef brisket. Highly recommend this place. We would definitely return next time we are in the area. Parking is plenty at the back of the restaurant.

Never been. Food was solid pub fare. Very good. Service a little weird. Told we couldn’t get a fresh glass for water refill (which I don’t really care about but waitress grabbed mine and not her persons water glass-identical, filled them at a station out of sight then brought them back. Not sure how to tell them apart so took her word on it but still who knows). Reason for no new glass-out of clean ones. My son works commercial food service. Takes 80 seconds to run a commercial dishwasher. And it’s a bar-no clean glasses. Wasn’t even that crowded. Sounds like it’s time to hit the warehouse. Also tried to take used forks off of the dirty app plates and put them back on the table but there were multiple forks-who knows who’s is who’s? The waitress herself was very pleasant. Just weird servingware behavior. Nice gas firepit outside. $200 for 8 with a table full of apps then main course for everyone. Including 3 or 4 beers which seem pretty reasonable. That’s including tip. Place inside is Old brown pub décoré. Works for me. And we asked for a table that could see the tv (Yankees vs Astros) which they accommodated. Tableware stuff aside I would absolutely go back again. Feels like a happy place

Our meals were good. The service was slow even though it wasn't very busy.

No parking. Once the restaurant lot fills up there is no parking in the area. It doesn't matter if you have a reservation don't plan on being able to park your car.

The Main Pub is an excellent choice if you are looking for a restaurant with great food choices, outside seating and on Monday nights it is 1/2 price bottle of wine starting at 6 PM. The staff is professional, available and very pleasant. Our server was great. Her name was Allison.

The outdoor seating is very comfortable along with the fire pits to keep you warm on cool evenings. Good selection is great and good very tasty. We enjoyed our dinner. We'll definitely go again!

We had a very nice well paced meal. On a very busy night, Ayla did a great job in walking us through the menu and then paced our meal well, as we never felt rushed. The kitchen here puts outs consistently great food. This place isn't right around the corner for us but it is ALWAYS worth the trip. Can't wait for our next trip, thanks for a great meal.
