Nice neighborhood place for solid food. Great breakfasts and lunches. Have not dined for dinner so can't comment on that. LOVE the sweets that are sold there including great coffee cakes. All prices more than reasonable for the quality and quantity served.

The food was phenomenal. The eggs were cooked perfectly as well as the bacon sausage and home fries. The staff was pleasant and helpful. If I could give this place 10 stars I would.

Main Street Grille is nothing spectacular, but they are a cute little joint and they serve good food. It has a small-town vibe that makes it really charming.
