Service staff is always wonderful. Food is great, and the menu is extensive enough. Go for the crab legs and eat all you want! Not expensive, plenty of parking, great food and a good time.

We like to have lunch here whenever we're in the Main Street area at midday. Great soups, sandwiches, wraps, and THE BEST key lime pie anywhere, period.

The food arrived hot and very delicious. The atmosphere is like your home town restaurant. It is clean, safe and provides a very relaxing time. What a joy to find... More

2 of the 4 of us had all you can eat crab legs. The other 2 had dinner entrees. The owner wouldn't honor the BOGO coupon since we got all you can eat crab legs. While the coupon does say that, not all of us got crab legs. We were given a better explanation why we could use the coupon.

Great upscale diner sort of place with a classic menu and great service. Located in a shopping center and a perfect spot to have a drink while shopping. Can't go wrong with a cheeseburger and Cajun fries. Good prices too.

Food was great. Better than expected for a corner cafe/pub. Definitely a local favorite for a reason! Cajun fries were good, Fried grouper wrap was delicious!

New favorite on the island! This place is fantastic. Great food, big portions, and reasonable prices. Owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. Menu has a lot of staple items (burgers, chicken sandwiches, etc.) but each has a few additions to make them unique. And everything tastes so fresh! We'll be back for more :)

We wanted sea food on the last trip we took to HHI but because it was Labor Day W/e the "traditional" places had 90 plus minute waits for a table. One of the places they suggested was main street café. Here's the downside, its not easy to find and sits way back from 278 highway. This concludes the downside. Oh... More
