I have been here for lunches with friends and business associates. I love their sushi specials at lunch. Delicious and fairly priced. Most recently I was there for lunch. We ate in the restaurant side, I was there with a business associate from out of state and she loved sitting in the window and watching the traffic in the quaint,... More

...and on Sunday after 2pm, they're half price! Our 97 year old father 'makes' us take him there when he visits. Every few weeks he starts with a half dozen, then five minutes later, he orders another. And by the way, Steak & Main has delicious food for other people, too. When you're finished eating visit shoppes in North East.... More

I'm a local. I don't go here often. The atmosphere is nice. Great place to get a drink. The staff has always been friendly. I do think this place is over priced and over rated. It's not a place I would go to enjoy a solid meal. I've had a few items, but was not impressed. I've seen where it... More

The ambiance was quite good and the town is adorable! The menu is beautifully constructed and it is clear that the Chef is well trained with great flavor combinations. Many dishes are independently constructed, so the sides are paired with the meat or seafood - which is awesome. I had a ribeye that was so perfectly cooked and flavored that... More

Second time I've eaten here and it was truly excellent. Had the duck rolls to start and the teriyaki filet for main. Both amazing dishes. Staff were excellent too. Will definitely be back.

I love this restaurant! The service is always excellent! The menu has a lot variety and the food never disappoints! We had a shrimp tempura appetizer that was to die for! Then for dinner the crab cakes and the filet and seafood poivre were awesome. We then had a disassembled key lime cream pie and bananas foster! Yummy! I love... More

Pretty amazing food, really squirrely service - perish the thought of constructive criticism, and don't think about complaining or the management will either (a) laugh in your face or (b) blame you for their poor performance. Really hard to figure out why the owner is such a prickly-pear, I guess he just doesn't believe in maintaining a good rapport with... More

Never having been to Steak and Main, I was so happy that we made the trip for a business lunch. The crab soup was great. Service was excellent.

I took my sister and brother in law along with my parents to the brunch. Mix a Bloody Mary bar with crab and shrimp on it with raw oysters and shrimp and grits, add a baked Alaska for desert and there you are. Great place, good price, and attentive service; what else do you need?

The food is average (not the best steak I have had by far). The prices are up there. The service reflects the rules of the chef/owner (I think). For example, the waitress never told us that they do sushi and that there was another menu entirely. The rules are too rigid (cannot get a hamburger if you do not sit... More

we offer fine dining in the Steak House and casual dining in the Oyster Bar. We buy the highest quality steaks and seafood. Our steaks are Certified Angus Beef prime and upper choice.

We are more expensive and "overpriced" compared to your low end chain restaurants while less expensive then your prime steak houses and serve the same high quality.

We earned the #54 spot on The Travel Channels 101 Tastiest Places in America and #5 spot on their Chowdown Best Steak Houses in America.
