Good food, and wait staff. The place has poorly disclosed, but impactful rules. Like cash only and no sharing. The CASH only is disclosed while standing at the register. You pay the same price as a place that accepts cards too (no benefit for me to pay cash). The strangest rule. We were charged an extra $6 to share fries... More

I ate lunch here this past weekend and place my order with a very nice waitress. I meant to order a clubhouse and fries, but my daughter pointed out that I actually ordered a BLT and fries. The waitress came back to our table less than two minutes after I placed the order, I told her my mistake and asked... More

I usually have an omelette, and my son always gets the biscuits and gray. This place is always good!

I have recently been eating breakfast in restaurants rather than at home. What I have discovered is the best omelet in Detroit Lakes is at the Main Street Restaurant. I have eaten at Perkins, Country Kitchen, Holiday Inn and Main Street. All are good, but ain Street is excellent.

The standard old style menu is a welcome feeling in comparision to the chain breakfast places. Huge portions and all homemade. The servers are local and sassy in good hometown way.

Great restaurant for breakfast. The omelets are huge, large portions of meat in the omelet. Great service, the coffee cup never was empty. Be aware that they don't take credit cards.

If you're hungry, this is the place to go. Food very good and extremely plentiful. They were busy, but we had a short wait time.

My family had good enough meals at the Main Street Restaurant, but nothing was special. The menu was fairly standard for an old style family restaurant. The side salad was unimpressive - just some poorly shredded iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, and dressing. The decor needs updating. The carpeting is very stained and the wallpaper reminded me of the 1990's. The bathroom... More
