My sister and I went for brunch, a little after 11am. There were 2 other tables, with 2 guests each, and 2 servers. We both ordered 3 slices of french toast, with bacon (supposed to be 3 slices) and hash browns. The french toast was...More

Stopped in for lunch and our party of five was quite satisfied with our sandwiches. Fresh and nicely presented. The potato chips were disappointing as they were all crumbs from the bottom of the bag. Service was slow but friendly. All in all, it was...More

have been going to Main Street Deli for years, lots of good sandwiches that usually have a twist on an old favorite. The quiche is always good, as well as the soup!

Had a fantastic lunch of chicken salad with pineapple and pecans on raisin bread! Interesting choices. People near me were raving about the soup. Nice friendly lunch spot right downtown. Great wait staff. Prompt service.

For once I did not look at Trip Advisor before going to this restaurant for lunch; big mistake! Food was some of the worst I have eaten. I ordered beef noodle soup which tasted like the meat came from a can; broth was greasy and...More

the previous location on South Main street was a bustling delicious gig. Since they have moved...the restaurant always has a chilly climate in more ways than one. My crab bisque was heated in the microwave and tasted like skillet bottom.

During my visit yesterday, the place was packed-every table full or dirty with dishes. One waitress working as fast as she could. Even though it took much longer to get lunch than it should have, it was worth the wait. I had a Veggie Quesadilla...More

The food is always very good but there are new and fresh menu items and I now have some new favorites. The service is personal but not overbearing which I personally favor

This place is a "hidden gem" in downtown Chambersburg. The restaurant is an off-shoot of a catering business and provides great food at very reasonable prices. The staff is friendly, attentive and strives to please. Open for breakfast and lunch only Monday-Saturday this is a great place for a quick breafast or a leisurely lunch. The only negative (in my opinion) is that the “background music” is provided by a local radio station. Diners shouldn’t have to talk over some DJ or the local news. Perhaps background music without vocals would be more appropriate for a place like Main Street Deli.
