I've gone to the Main Course countless times. That gives you a hint of my love for this place. As you've read, the salad menu is phenomenal. One chooses their own ingredients to customize a salad of their choice. This always makes me one very...More

I have eaten here many times and have enjoyed it each time. All menu items are delicious and the quality is high. The place is clean and prices reasonable. I highly recommend Main Course and I am a tough critic. You won't be disappointed.

Nicely surprised by the quality of the food. Several small rooms nicely decorated with small or large tables to share. You first choose your dishes at the counter, then you take it to your table. Informal but cozy

First time visiting Main Course. The restaurant is very clean and well designed. The menu has a good balance and we like that it is farm to table. Prices are fair for the area but not moderate in any way. The food was excellent, it...More
