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

The main pub has ok food and decent service. But at the pricing for food and drinks there are so many other options. There beer menu is decent, but they hit you hard for drinks. They had a $4 drink night. I was told it was for all non imports. When the bill came most of the beers were $8.... More

A beloved local gathering place, I wanted my rating to be higher, but not this time. It was my first visit, and as always, I don't take one visit as my only one. I will visit again in the hopes I simply hit an off day. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Our waitress was very personable and pleasant. While... More

We came here for a birthday and really enjoyed it. Everyone's friendly, and the restaurant was decorated for Halloween. The food's good, and ours was spicy, which was nice. They also had live music.
