Traveling down the NY thruway and happened upon a great lunch place. Tons of vegetarian offerings, craft brews, great atmosphere, creative food and presentation. Vegan cookies tremendous. Would recommend the falafel and eggplant sandwich and all the salads were terrific. Friendly staff.

We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor rating. We very much liked our salads and the restaurant so much that we returned the second day for lunch again. Staff did not seem very personal at all, but presented a good product.

I have eaten here many times and have enjoyed it each time. All menu items are delicious and the quality is high. The place is clean and prices reasonable. I highly recommend Main Course and I am a tough critic. You won't be disappointed.

Bruce and his team manage to serve entries for as little as $12 on Tuesday nights. The selection and quality is as good as anything in the Hudson Valley and the cost is about the same as a fast food restaurant. Main Course allows you...More
