The food here is pretty good. The beers are nothing to write home about. The service was what will probably keep us from returning. The waitress was very rude and more interested in hanging out with her friends at another table than paying attention to her customers.

At Main Street Brewery & Restaurant, we understand people's desire to eat healthy and we relate to those with dietary restrictions or choices; therefore we've designed a menu with many vegetarian and gluten-free “options”. I do apologize that your food took longer than expected, and that you misunderstood our Soft Tacos menu item. It is listed on the menu as... More

My wife and I ate here the evening we stayed in Cortez. We had a burger and beer. The food and beer was very good. The staff person taking care of us was not as personable as I expected him to be.

Nice friendly bar, although all the light beers I wanted to try were out of stock, but the food and service was good. Would go back again.

I ordered the salmon because most items on the menu have a lot of gluten and / or are deep fat fried. The salmon was grey and smelled like ammonia so I immediately sent it back. A "manager" came over who only appeared to have two teeth. He proceeded to tell me that there was nothing wrong with that salmon... More

MesaCervezaOwner, Owner at Main Street Brewery, responded to this review

As in any business, but it appears most especially in the restaurant industry, on occasion you get a review that is so asinine and misleading that there is no reason to try and treat it as if it had any basis for truth or accuracy. This is one such, as this reviewer is clearly more suited to a stint in... More

We decided to try this restaurant per the check in lady at the hotel. She said it did have some of the better food in town. We got there and they were not busy. Hostess proceeded to cash out three checks before acknowledging we were there. She finally finished and seated us. We asked for 2 kids menus and she... More
