Don't order the steak no matter what unless you wish to eat your shoes. My partner wanted the tuna, but they were out so she got her second choice and was not that pleased. The drinks were cheap and not too bad.

If you go here most people will tell you to stick with the tuna or the chicken breast. I will agree with that. The pork and steak are usually pretty gristly. But one thing this place has going for it is the choice of a few different very flavorful sauces. The tuna is usually cooked so that there is a little pink which leaves it nice and moist. The addition of a nice sauce makes it worth the visit. But if you don't care for tuna and don't really need a break from fairly bland food, then Main Street really doesn't have much else to offer.

Great sources for every dish that they make. Cream Jalapeno is my favorite, and it goes great over empanadas.

Main Street is one of the more upscale dining options in Utila, and is one that I have both sampled many times and recommend most strongly to friends.

Choices at Main Street are generally of a higher quality than what you normally find elsewhere in Utila, and include fine grilled foods like steaks and pork, plus very welcome wildcards like chicken enchiladas. Sauces accompany the main dishes and are outstanding, and include flavors like peach barbeque and (my favorite) jalapeno cream.

Desserts seem to get sold out as the clock ticks, but are well worth a try - when you can get it, the chocolate cake is a huge step up from typical Utila sweets.

There's a full bar available, as well, with worthy drink specials on things like strawberry daquiris.

In terms of the dining space, tables are fairly large, and this is a good place to take a big group. Most of the seating is on the balcony overlooking the main street through Utila, but there is a cozy interior with couches, a dartboard, and many photographs taken of local marine life.

It's worth noting that Main Street is only the second level of a building about 50 feet East of the crossroads - downstairs is Casino, a separate establishment which is unmistakable for its pool tables. The stairway up to Main Street is on the side of the building closest to the crossroads, just past the menu that will be on display if Main Street is open that evening.

There's no question that Main Street is a relative splurge in Utila terms, but is still very good value for the money, and is a very welcome change of pace if you are suffering from a baliada overdose!
