Our second time here and we have had a lovely brunch each time. Many choices to cover any palate. Love the fried pickles and the pretzel appetizers. Large selection of beer. The service was excellent. We'll be back.

Got the burger. Enjoyed some drinks. Salad was good, wings were OK. The sun room area was cool. The seats were really uncomfortable. Waitress was initially pissy but she came around. Not bad but could be better. Has some potential and looks like the new outside patio ara will be cool this summer.

Ordered the Yucatan Pork and waited 45 minutes for it to arrive. Cutting into the meat I realized it was not just undercooked - it was raw. The wait staff did not seem overly concerned. I've been to The Main Pub many times in the past and realized they have had an upturn in business recently due to their increased... More

My daughter and I went here after her karate tournament. Lots of great bar food and the service there is good with a great atmosphere to soak up as you eat. Parking is ample behind the restaurant.

Visited this pub for the second time today. First impression reveals a nicely decorated pub. While this is probably a busy evening spot it was rather quiet for lunch on both visits. The waitstaff was pleasant and efficient and the food was well prepared if a bit slow arriving. I enjoyed the French dip sandwich. Nice bread, meat and onions... More

The Main Pub has a good selection of food - appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers and entries. The ruben sandwich is one of best I have had at any restaurant. The fried pickles were crispy and not greasy. They have a good craft beer selection. I have always had good service there.

Stopped by The Main Pub for lunch last Fri. I have been there before and very much enjoy the food they serve. This particular day I order the Jambalaya and it was fantastic. It had the right amount of spice, the sausage was excellent and the shrimp was larger enough to make this a complete lunch. My wife order the... More
