“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Just scouring the area for unique areas to visit - Saw sign for "Main Street" - had to check it out.
Many little shops and boutiques in the area. It was a good time for a late lunch and tried the Main Street Café on a whim. We were not disappointed. The seating area was bright with outside light and tables spaced comfortably apart. Our server " Cindy" was very friendly, asked our preferences and offered food recommendations. The food came out hot, nice presentation and delicious for a small "Café" type restaurant. There are many places to eat on the island, but we are Very glad we stopped here. Will include this place on our list for future visits.

“All you can eat crab legs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This place is great. All you can eat crab legs and they are delicious. Just found a coupon for key lime pie at the hotel info stand. We will be back!

“A lesson on crabs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

It was our first full day on HHI and we needed to find a nearby grocery store and restaurant so we headed out to the Main Street area and looked for this Café which had been recommended by a member of the activities staff at the resort. We were not disappointed. Having left cold weather in the north behind us, we were happy to sit on the patio and enjoy the warm breezes and lush greenery. We were keen to try the crab legs and for one of us, the all-you-can-eat deal was perfect. I however wanted a smaller portion so the waiter suggested the appetizer-size crab legs which I ate with a fresh side salad - perfect for me. We found the crab meat to be sweet and tender; I actually used very little of the drawn butter because I like the taste of the crab. It's a bit of work getting every little bit of meat out of smallest section of the legs but eating slowly is good for the digestion, or so we are told.

The restaurant offered a good selection of craft and other beers and the food menu offered a good variety of dishes.

The bonus was a lesson on crabs from our friendly waiter. We, of course, were eating Alaskan King crabs but I was interested in hearing about the crabs which are caught around the area. He gave us a good introduction which held us in good stead over our week in the area.

In sum, a delicious meal and an interesting evening!

What a fun review. Thank you so much. We often have conversations about crab here. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your time on the patio after a long cold winter. It seems people were eager to get to the Low Country this year..

We look forward to seeing you again

Thanks

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Went to Main Street Café after reading reviews online. It was not overly crowded on a Friday night...we were seated right away, which was nice. The food was DELICIOUS...can't go wrong with the grouper wrap and/or blackened chicken wrap. Very glad we found this place. Will definitely return next time we're in Hilton Head!

“Great service with large group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We called ahead to see if they could accommodate our group of 4 adults and 8 kids and by the time we got there they had our table with high chair set up and waiting for us. The service was friendly and prompt throughout the meal. Most, but not everyone, loved their food. We appreciated the atmosphere - fresh, clean and quiet enough, despite a full house, to hold a conversation.
