It's been about 3 years since our last visit and we were glad we stopped. (It's the wife's favorite place to eat at in Cambria!) This time we both got the Tri-tip sandwich and it arrived piled high with delicious tri-tip! The prices have increased...More

Spent three nights in Cambria and ate at the Main Street Grill one night. Food is ordered at a counter and taken back to a table, in a very casual atmosphere. Our small group ordered the ribs, a chicken dinner, and a couple of salads....More

We had a good lunch experienced here. For the price paid, it was a very good value. I enjoyed the beef tip sub, the large order fries, The BLT sandwich was great, and the price is very reasonable for this area

We have been coming here for at least 20 years. While the restaurant exterior has changed, their prices have barely moved. How they provide this amazing food at such reasonable prices, we have not idea. But, we are enjoying it every time!

Cheeseburgers were underdone...had to send back for fresh ones. New ones were over cooked. Southwestern salad was tasteless. Fried onions were very large and fries were very salty. A lot of flies inside the restaurant. Staff were pleasant. CASH only...not good for travellers.

This restaurant is large inside and makes you wish you had the entire gang along to watch a game of any sort. When you walk in, a smokiness is in the air from the grill. I ordered the Tri tip sandwich with a side of...More

We really enjoyed the Main Street Grill after a day of surf watching, beach walking, downtown shopping. It's easy to find and came highly recommended as a good and inexpensive place to eat. We loved the light and airy space with lots of elbow room...More

The food and experience is nothing special. There are so many other quality restaurants in Cambria. My son and I had a horrible experience here during the fires.

I don't agree they are just fast food. If you like BBQ they serve some good food.
