GREAT FOOD, EASY PARKING, LOVE THE OPEN WINDOWS. A BIT TOO NOISY TO CARRY ON A CONVERSATION EASILY. WISH THEY HAD ROUND TABLES FOR PARTIES OF 5 OR MORE AS IT IS DIFFICULT TO CARRY ON A GROUP CONVERSATION WHEN THE PEOPLE CAN HARDLY SEE OR HEAR EACH OTHER AT THE ENDS

AWESOME server and Bloody Mary's! Chicken and waffles were said to be delicious. Lobster roll was very tasty but for a hungry guy it's a bit small. Only bummer was the turkey club and that was because it was INCREDIBLY dry. They need to put more pesto or an aioli on the side and it would be great. All in all great brunch despite being overpriced by about 15 percent or so. Will return for more Bloody Mary's and to try the Lobster Benedict.

The food was outstanding and the service was great. However, I ordered the sea bass and my friend ordered the salmon. The price for the Sea bass was 34.00 and the price for the Salmon was 29.00. The portions of these entrees were the size of a petite women’s palm of her hand. There were no sides included, everything was al a carte. We felt for the amount of food you received the portions should have been a bit larger, or at least a side dish be included. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be back.

A very nice restaurant with excellent food. They have their own winery in California so it makes it interesting to try their wines which were very good. My only complaint is that it is a bit pricey. A burger is $16 and the low end wines by the glass were $9-$14, I think these were their house wines too. I would go back, but for a special occasion.

We went to celebrate my birthday and ended up sitting on their back patio where they had heat lamps and a really nice fire. The food was delicious and the service was awesome, too!

Celebrating a friend’s birthday and lunch was very good, service great. Fries however were not piping hot. Seemed like they had been sitting in a warmer. Both of us at the table that had fries as part of our meals had the same experience.

We had a great time with our small group. They accommodated is a little earlier than we reserved, which was nice. The food was absolutely wonderful and the menu had such a wonderful variety it was hard to choose. There were plenty of options for our group even with a vegetarian, and a few other special diets. The wine pour could have been a bit more generous - small glass of rose for $10.

The 20 oz ribeye was the best steak my husband has ever had, and he is a steak aficionado! Was pricey but absolutely worth it! Service was excellent. Quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants.

We had a reservation for a table but when we arrived we were offered a high top in the bar or a 35 minute wait. We decided to sit in the bar which was the beginning of a bad experience. It was super loud, very crowded and the tables are crammed together. We were seated right where people enter the restaurant so it was super noisy with people bumping into us while we were trying to eat. We did not enjoy our experience at all because of where we were sat....it really took away from what could have been a good date night for my husband and I. I was also surprised with the food because there were such great reviews. I thought the food was okay but it was nothing memorable.

Berkshire Meatball: tastes like a meatball...nothing special
Proscuitto Flatbread: crust was was really tasty
Gnocchi Carbonara: very rich and salty...nothing special

This would be a good place to go to with friends or if you’re planning on having a fun night out, but I would not recommend this place if you want to have a good intimate meal with conversation. The layout of this restaurant is really bad because there are too many tables for the space. You can barely walk through the front bar area to the restroom because the bar is so close to the tables. I will most likely not dine here again because the food was okay and the ambience was majorly lacking.

Excellent service and great food in a beautiful space. It is quite loud but the inviting atmosphere makes up for it. Duke is always welcoming and extremely accommodating in a very hectic and busy room. Our confirmed OpenTable reservation for a high top in the bar wasn't showing up at Main Street and Duke seamlessly found us a great table on a busy Saturday night. Colette was charming and guided us all to delicious dinners. Can't wait to visit Main Street again!

We love this restaurant. The food is amazing. We always include the brussel sprout salad and the muscles with any meals we order. The other salads and appetizers are probably great but we just love these and keep having them. Truly though, everything is wonderful. No other restaurant makes you feel so welcome and appreciated. We just can’t say enough.

Fabulous service. Very attentive without hovering and so smooth. However, the food was just good. Not the level that I’m still thinking about it days later and dreaming about my next visit. Good enough though that I would return and perhaps try different things. Prices were a little high for the level that the food was. For those prices the food should have been as amazing as the service. I didn’t think the noise level was too bad but it was a weekday night and it wasn’t a full house.

An awesome evening. We have dined here several times, but the experience for a Valentine's Day reservation REALLY exceeded our expectations. The full menu was offered and there was also a prix fix option. The food is uniquely prepared and highly flavorful. We were not rushed, and the ambiance was great. Loved it.
