The evening started with going to the bar while waiting for friends. The bartender pulled out a $9 bottle of wine, gave me a very short pour and charged almost $14 for the glass. We waited almost 2 hours to get our food. The vegetables were frozen from a bag and very cold. There was maybe a tablespoon of mashed... More

This is one of the best places to eat around Public Square. Attractive Victorian decor with a nice view to whatever activities might be underway in or around the Gazebo. On this and other visits I have been surprised at how few people are eating there but this time it was very stormy in the area which may have kept... More

It has been years since we last ate here and for good reason. Our meals were mostly overdone, except for the wrap sandwich my wife had. The alcohol eased some of the pain of their high prices. The place is quite dark but we had nice seating right up front with large windows overlooking the square. The hostess and waitresses... More

My girlfriend and I went with another couple on for lunch on a mid-day Saturday (about 12:45 p.m.) The Main Street Cafe sits prominently across the street from the town square. (Great location while leisurely enjoying downtown Medina.) When we walked in, the cafe looked clean, a group of six was being seated just ahead of us. Otherwise, the restaurant,... More

My wife and I enjoyed our Steak and Fish and good company at the bar with its beautiful flourishes. The company we met while chatting at the bar was nice. The food was delish and it was nice to break away for a little and leave our bambino at my parents' house.

I've eaten here three times in the last two years in groups of 4-12. They have vegetarian and vegan choices in addition to American fare. The staff was friendly and accommodated our large group easily. I will go back here in an instant. Just as a warning they do have artwork that includes a nude in the bar section if... More

Main Street Café serves the best burger I've had in Medina. The place is great for a lunch, should you happen to be on the square, and isn't bad for a drink in the evening either.

were excellent and plenty for two for lunch. Loaded with chili, cheese, tomatoes, black olives, green onions, jalapeños and I don't remember what else. Great service by Dee at the bar.

I can honestly say this is the worst meal I have ever had at a restaurant. We ordered a pretzel appetizer. Sounded good because it came with mustard and chipotle cheese sauce. The mustard was standard stadium mustard and the cheese sauce tasted like lower grade microwave sauce. House salad comes with the meal. Nothing but spring greens and dressing... More
