Was in town for a hockey tournament and looking for somewhere to have breakfast between games. Stopped at a gas station to fill up and saw this place. Decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. The Southwestern Breakfast Wrap was very good and flavorful! Everyone there looked like they were really enjoying their meals, as well. Service...

We were just looking for quick breakfast before kid sporting event on a Saturday. We were absolutely impressed with the food and baked goods and homey feel of the place. The buttermilk covered donut was DEVINE. We both had eggs, sausage, grits and biscuit. Fabulous! Really simple food done perfectly. Very friendly staff. We ended up buying 3 dozen donuts... More

Excellent food and pastries in a casual setting. Eat in or take out. We went Sunday after church. Some wait but it was worth it.

I discovered Main Street Grille on the way to work one morning years ago. The food and customer service were so good, that it became my go to place for breakfast at least three times a week. The apple cider doughnuts were my first and are still my favorite. I stop in as often as I'm able.

Pastries and baked goods are best in town. Brownies are delicious and big seller. Breakfast is worth trying and the sandwiches are tasty. If the place just wasn't so small- but go and wait. You won;t be disappointed.

Varied menu with something for all tastes. Reasonably priced and good. The Friday and Saturday Prime rib special is great. The desserts from the bakery are great to take home because you will be too full to eat them there. You order at the register and they bring the food to your table. The drinks are self serve. The staff... More

We had a late breakfast at the Grille Cafe and Bakery and it was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You had to order your meal then sit and wait for it to be served. Very good

The blueberry muffins are awesome! They also have fresh made donuts, scones, cookies, pies... YUM... The food is good and made to order. Nice selection too. The wait can be a pain and often extends to into the convenience store, but that is just a testament that the food is worth the stand in line. Not much ambiance but otherwise... More

Wife and I visited for the first time a couple of weeks ago on Friday night for the prime rib. We were well satisfied and will visit again very soon.

Thank you for the positive feedback. Prime Rib has always been very popular at the grille. It's what we call a "LOSS LEADER", in the restaurant business. With boneless ribeye prices approaching $9.00 per lb, then add in shrinkage during cooking, and trim, we barely make a couple of bucks on the plate! BUT, everyone talks about it, word of... More
