643 W Main St, Louisville, KY 40202-4913, Louisville
Excellent food, great atmosphere
Always tastes great
Only open for lunch. The worst thing about The Main Eatery is that the line is always very long. I highly recommend the blue plate specials. Thursday is a chicken salad on a fresh baked croissant. It is fantastic.
I just started working downtown and I went in to grab the special and I love the atmosphere. Great hometown feel. The cashier felt like a longtime friend.
Great little lunch spot
A lovely little quaint place it serves great food and a great lunch experience
One of my favorite lunch spots downtown! Great food and reasonably priced which sometimes can be a rare find downtown.
Very clean, fast, affordable and friendly service. The soups and sandwiches we're great and just what we needed!
Great home recipe soups.
This place is amazing! The food was very good. The soup was amazing. Definitely recommend. Very friendly staff.
The food was good and the building was clean. Reasonable prices for downtown.
Great service from David and his team! Traveling from VA and glad we found this place for a quick Reuben, Chicken salad, chili and cheesecake! Stop here for lunch!
Great little lunch spot! Especially if you work around the area and can get there before noon. The service reminds me of Chic Fil-A. Real friendly atmosphere!😉👍
Good food and reasonable prices.
Always delish. Thursday is cheesy soup and croissants. My favorite! Staff is nice. Place is clean.
Friendly staff and fast service. Food was great too!
Great atmosphere, great food and great service

Delicious food. Friendly staff. Fair prices.
Really good homemade food. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Great quality and nice serving size for the price. We will be back. Great local owned find!!!
Love this Place!They've got it down to a science. Always going to see a line out the door, for all the right reasons.They have an ample selection, and an intelligently structured menu .They make your food promptly and with love every time.A great place to eat in or carry out.
i looove their broccoli and cheddar soup! but they were out of it so i got the chili and peanut butter and jelly sandwich instead and dude honestly im soo glad i did cause it was delicious!
Great place to grab a reasonably priced lunch!
The cheeseburgers are best I've ever tasted if you get either or fries or chilli you might as well get both
I am so grateful we came across this restaurant for lunch while in town. Great service, quaint atmosphere, snazzy music, delicious food. Highly recommend the Tuna sandwich and garden vegetable soup!
I've been coming to Main Eatery for 9 years. I've never had a bad experience. The food is consistently on point and the service is great, the owners run their restaurant like a well-oiled machine. **Hint** On Thursdays, the blue plate special is a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant (buttery and flaky), chips, a drink AND cheesecake!!! All for just $10.55 if you pay with card, you get a small discount when you pay with cash. Enjoy!
Great soup and sandwiches. One of my favorite lunch spots when I'm working downtown. The staff are very friendly. I recommend getting here a few minutes before noon to avoid the long line of people wanting their tasty fare for lunch
Hurray! The Main Eatery is open! Good lunches offered: the chicken noodle soup was rich and tasty; husband's roast beef sandwich and my chicken salad sandwich were fresh and plentiful. Attractive atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommend!
Excellent sandwiches and we met the owner, he was very kind and helpful on our way through town!
Cozy diner type restaurant. Excellent service. I've only tried their grilled cheese and tomato soup thus far which is delicious, but that leaves them at 4 stars for now
Atmosphere is energetic, extremely fast service, and their food is fabulous!
Staple! Great lunch spot. Me and my wife love it.
This is my favorite lunch spot. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is always fresh and amazing. They do a daily blue plate special with a good deal for a tasty lunch. My favorite is the Thursday special which is chicken salad on a freshly made croissant, chips, and fresh cheese cake. The line can get long around noon, but you will understand why once you get your food. 5 stars all day!
On a trip through Louisville we stopped here. The food was fantastic the environment was nice. Establishment was clean friendly and efficient. If we come back through i would def look this place up!
A fine shop to get delicious sandwiches and soups. The owner is very inviting and engaging. The place is small, but well kept. If it is busy during lunch time there may be a small line which is a testimony to the popularity of the establishment.
Absolutely a lovely place !! Brilliant food and humorous kind customer service .
Honestly the sandwiches were nothing to write home about. The "cracked wheat bread" which sounds fancy, is just wheat bread you buy at your local grocery store. Then the sandwich meat, lettuce, cheese, all can be bought then made at home. The atmosphere was cool, and the service great
This place never let's me down. Never had a bad meal here. Reubens are delicious. Had the chili for the first time today and it was fantastic. Highly recommend going on a Thursday and getting their Blue Plate Special. It comes with chicken salad on a homemade croissant, chips or soup, and some killer cheesecake.
Food is great, good people, fast service and a very comfortable atmosphere.
It's always a joy to walk into the tiny entryway of the Main Eatery to be greeted by sunlight, plants, and Billy Joel. Music. Not himself, unfortunately, although this is just the kind of bread he'd like put in his jar. The service is phenomenal, the menu is clear and *everywhere* so no matter where you are in line you can debate over the cheap & delicious combos they offer. Like, the homemade-croissant chicken salad sandwich & soup vs. the BLT and tomato bisque. Basically, you can't go wrong, and you'll be full long before your wallet's empty. My favorite part is probably the seating, though: this place is E NOR MOUS once you're inside, with the best little indoor balcony -- many paintings, many plants -- perched next to the window, so you can eat in the sunlight (or watching the rain). I'll keep coming back for the longest time. ... I'm sorry, okay, I'm done x)
Cozy place to grab a sandwich, soup or salad! The guy who takes order is so friendly! I did not read you have to order by number - oops! Love the multi tier layout and cool stained glass!
Delicious food, great atmosphere. Definitely a long line around lunchtime so come early!
The Best downtown
Great food, specials and combos. Great lunch place on Main St.
Quant little place enough table seating for abou 80 to 100 I'm estimating. Excellent menu with everything on the menu being super delicious. Owners are great people who care about the customer and the experience while you are there... I would highly recommend this place great food and atmosphere.
amazing food great service. will definitely be back
We ate here for lunch, upon the advice of a local. My Kentucky ham sandwich was substantial. My husband liked his chicken salad sandwich. The soups - clam chowder and vegetable beef - excellent! The plain old iced tea was especially appreciated. And I liked how the drink came with the special.
Great place to go for lunch. Soups and sandwiches are fresh and tasty. Personally love the Chili and Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Blue Plate specials are unique especially on Tuesday and Wednesday. The roast beef sandwich on Tuesday is my favorite sandwich in town. Plus the owners and staff are always extremely personable and friendly!
The food was healthy, amazing and so fresh! Recommend and will be going back. The people were great. So happy to have discovered this inner city gem
Loved the food! Homemade soups were excellent. I had the broccoli cheese soup and loved it. The owner was so friendly and helpful. Lovely experience!
