The Tavern on the Main burger is outstanding. But don’t forget the Greek grilled chicken saladserved with their homemade ranch dressing. The waitresses go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. It has a very relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend this place.

Friends recommended this friendly, neighborhood restaurant, and I've been back every week. The staff is friendly and welcoming, drink selection is good and the food is great. The Greek Salad is delicious, as are the wings and burgers.
