The food was phenomenal. The eggs were cooked perfectly as well as the bacon sausage and home fries. The staff was pleasant and helpful. If I could give this place 10 stars I would.

Main Street Grille is nothing spectacular, but they are a cute little joint and they serve good food. It has a small-town vibe that makes it really charming.

We always go there as family. Love this place! Very delicious food and good service. Just the waiting line is way to long. So if in a rush, don't go there. Their cake, cookies are all good.More

Have only been here to take out baked goods. Their apple fritters and doughnuts are among the best in the area. They also make wonderful rugalach, which are as good as I've had anywhere, including New York. Highly recommend.
