Dropped in here for lunch midweek after reading great reviews on TA. Found on street parking right across from restaurant, and was surprised to find a great little restaurant one would typically find in a big city. Great atmosphere and service, along with delicious food....More

We recently had plans and reservations at a nearby restaurant but had to change plans because the other restaurant was closed due to a family medical emergency. We decided to dine at 85 Main instead and had a wonderful experience! They have a nice variety...More

Stopped in here while in Putnam for a few days. Service was great - very friendly staff. Decent beer selection. The food was okay, but really nothing special.

Went here for a family get together and was disappointed all around. My meal arrived stone cold. Waitress did not bring everyone's meal out at the same time. Food and drinks are way overpriced for the quality you are served. My one and only visit...More

Had dinner with two companions. The menu is eclectic and the drink and beer list creative. The sushi is fresh and expertly made. The burgers can be made with fresh local beef. Prices are fair for the quality of food. Service is pleasant and prompt....More

Had lunch with family at this eatery. Very wide selection of perfectly prepared dishes to choose from. My Caesar salad with fried oysters on top was delicious. You can judge a Caesar salad by the house made croutons, aged parmigiano, and the dressing. This one...More

Chef and General Manager James Martin, along with brothers Barry and Brian Jessurun of The Vanilla Bean Café in Pomfret and Dog Lane Café in Storrs, opened 85 main in 2005. 85 main was created with goal of offering fresh, quality seafood and steaks along with locally grown produce in an atmosphere one might expect to find in a "big" city. The emphasis is on fresh ingredients and cooked-to-order menu items. The interior of the building was completely remodeled, creating a warm, inviting and casual dining environment. During the warmer months, the outdoor patio is open for dining.
