Comfortable place with good service. Food was good. The average rating does not mean I would not go back or it was bad -just nothing spectacular. Would try again

This place set the trend for small local breweries. You will always find a beer you like whereas many have beers that are basically all the same. Food is great and service very good. Sit in the bar and won't have to wait for table...More

If you are in the mood for Nachos, this is the place. The order is huge and would feed more than you think. I have tried other items like the burger, quesadilla. Everything is good. Wasn't too crazy for the homemade potato salad though.

Visited on a very busy Sat night celebrating a birthday. Once seated, had items from appetizers, to burgers, to Ruebens, to full corned beef dinners. Plentiful portions and lots of local brews in a unique, historic building (formerly the post office). Great visit!

If you're in the area, you have to stop by for a bite. Make sure you get the nachos with pulled pork. It could feed 4 hungry people no problem. Best nachos in the world

Willimantic Brewing Co had been on our list for a while, so we took a drive one Sunday to check it out. Although the restaurant was packed (it was Sunday, St Patrick’s weekend), we were quickly greeted and seated. Unfortunately a couple of the brews...More

I had such a good time with my wife even though it was so crowded on a Saturday night at 6:30 that we couldn't get a seat at the bar or a table. We had to wait about 25 minutes for a table. Go figure....More

The Willimantic Brewing Company/Main Street Café is a living landmark restaurant and pub brewery located in Willimantic, in the heart of rural northeastern Connecticut.Our original Main Street Café was founded in 1991, and began operations as a small deli in the old Capitol Theatre building on Main Street in Willimantic, CT. Occupying both the lobby and concession area of the theatre, seating was limited to 50 people. After 3 years we were bursting at the seams and made the move to 877 Main Street, another historic building. There we expanded to a full service restaurant and featured American craft-brewed beers and an extensive menu. One more move was in the cards for us, and we made yet another trek down Main Street to our home in the current granite and limestone 1909 U.S. Post Office Building.
