My go to place when I get into town at night or when I want to get out of the mainstream Hi Street bustle of new paltz. Never fails to impress. Good atmosphere, great portions. Reasonable price. What more can you ask for.

Everything here is fresh and delicious and would eat here everyday if he lived close by. I enjoy trying whatever the special is that they have on a plate for you to see. ( nice touch).

I mostly get food to go from here and get it frequently. I've never had a bad dish. The blackened chicken sandwich is my go to, but they often have great daily specials and soups (the Thai veggie curry is my favorite lately--I could eat that once a week). I'm a dessert snob and rarely like restaurant desserts, but this... More

Sept 2016, this is our second time coming here and the food is just delicious. The inside has that home style feeling with a few community style tables and tables for2-4 - I love the fact that it has wooden floors throughout and a large oriental rug in the center of the dining room and that it is clean. Also... More

At this point, we're just piling on the goodness. Food is full of interesting flavors. You order, hang inside or outside, they call your name, you pick up beautifully plated goodness, you. are. happy. Bustling atmosphere and chefs are working out in the open. Can't miss.

This is a special place to eat. Having been here a number of times, I had the chance to get tired of it and didn't. The menu is generally the same and always good. A real attention to fine preparation. There are a range of offerings. I have mainly had the soups and the combination platter of sides. Yesterday I... More

After a long afternoon hiking in New Pltz with our dog we were looking for a spot to have lunch where we could bring our dog. Unfortunately, there are not many places in New Paltz on Main St. where you can bring Fido. Main Course is one of the few with some outdoor tables, so we took the chance and... More
