We had been a few times. Good food for Hiram but can't really compare with Atlanta. Whatever you order always needs a lot of salt. But the last time we went is the last time I will ever go. We arrived early and were seated. It took 20 minutes to take our order, over an hour for it to come to our table (that is an hour AFTER we ordered) so at this point we have invested one hour 20 minutes. I ordered the filet med rare. It came COLD. yes, COLD. I sent it back to reheat (which they really should have thrown another on the grill). 20 minutes later it comes back OVERCOOKED and really uneatable. I ask to speak to the owner. Now like I said, we had been in a few times, the owner recognized us. He came in and sat at our table and asked me what my problem was. When I explained, he rebutted that it was a busy night and they had a big party that was taking up their wait staff. No apologies, no attempt to make it better. When I told him on top of it all, it was really a bad cut of meat he then proceeded to argue that it wasn't. I told him I didn't want it and I didn't want to wait for another. Just bring me the check. My husband wanted to wait for me to eat so he didn't touch his own food (which is now cold). the manager actually charged my husband for his uneaten meal. When I told them I would never return, they shrugged their shoulders. No thanks! If I want bad service I will drive to Atlanta. At least I know I can eat there!

My wife and I went Saturday night. We called ahead for a reservation, so were seated right away. Service was prompt & appropriately attentive. Atmosphere very nice, especially on the bar side where not as crowded. Salad was fine if not extraordinary. Bread basket with regular and cinnamon butter was generously refilled. Entrees (we both ordered Red Snapper) were delicious. Other selections looked good as well. Side dish of "baked new potatoes" was "okay." Most prices seemed appropriate for the quality and style of food, however we were disappointed that the "evening special" fried shrimp apetizer turned out to be $10 for 5 so-so shrimp, which was more than most other apetizers on the menu. Two will spend $25 - $60 depending on apetizers, wine, tip, etc. I think ours was about $50. While we would refine our ordering a bit next time, we would definitely go back for a special occasion.

My husband and I saw this restaurant while driving through downtown Hiram. On a whim we decided to try it out. Wow! The food was delicious and had a wonderful presentation. It has a very warm romantic atmosphere. I love that we can have such a wonderful dining experience without leaving Hiram. We feel like this restaurant could easily compete with any of the restaurants in the city. You should at least give it a try.

My husband and I decided to give Mainstreet Tavern and Grille a try after reading the reviews. The food and service were excellent. We live in Villa Rica and it's worth the little drive over to Hiram. We had the chicken tuscany and baked grouper. Highly recommend both of those dishes.

The chef is exquisite. His desire to locate in a more rural area than Buckhead is the only reason we've got him and they don't. He just moved two blocks south of his original location on Main Street, now adjacent to the railroad tracks in old Hiram. Worth a visit from anywhere in Paulding, Cobb and Douglas counties.
