Reviewed 27 September 2013

We were in the area and after reading the reviews both pro and con, we decided to give it a shot since it claims to be upscale dining. Bad idea, if it could go wrong it did! We waited a long time to be seated, no one even greeted us, and the staff took a long time to come over to our table. Food was bland and flavors were just ordinary. No imagination or creativity in the meal preparation. They have a variety of wines to choose from but nothing very special or leaving us wanting to go back. Our beer and wine was served warm??? Place is too noisy for upscale and menu doesn't impress! Not worth the visit!

Upscale dining with home town charm. Great wine selection specializing in selections from small vineyards. You can't find this stuff at Specs! Specialty beers from small independent brewers. And the food. Yum!!! Steals, seafood, regional specials. Art walk on the first Friday of each month. Wine tastings on Thursday. Live music Friday and Saturday. All for a very reasonable price. To be honest - I do like the owner and the chef. It's a small town and a small venue so we know each other. But I bring all my friends and am a regular. You will not be dissapointed!

This place has been there a couple of years, but we only found it a couple of weeks ago. I went three times last week, it was that good. The shrimp tacos are really good...as was the beef tender medallions. We also had bread pudding one time, which was out of this world. - not dry like some places. VERY good.

I highly recommend Mainly Drinks. We are not drinkers, so the name is what was throwing us off...we thought it was a bar. It is well restored inside; the waiters are mature, helpful, and attentive. We met the chef and really like him - knows what he's doing.

GO here!! It's good!

They have latte, expresso, etc. during the day and mibrobrewed beer at night, and a great restaurant. Small but good menu and good food. In an old Main Street downtown store front which has great ambiance. The owner comes to every table at night to be sure everyone is well pleased. Easy to find on Main Street. Plenty of parking at night. Will definitely return.
