Foursquare Tips

  • Go here for $1 draws of Olde Main deliciousness on wednesday :)
  • The beer tastes best out of the glass pint glasses
  • Tip your cocktail servers and they will never forget you :)
  • Try the Western Burger - Today's special with BBQ sauce, bacon & cheese.
  • Cant go wrong with a sandwich and a cold Off KILTer Scottish Ale, a brew with a mild- hoppy, nice-malty flavor thats one of Olde Mains best.
  • Dinkey Wheat is amazing!! A must-try!
  • Try the sample of the brews made here. For only $6 you get to try 9 samples!
  • Brunch = awesome
  • Don't expect quick, or good service
  • Lousy, and I do mean lousy, service.
  • The Mussels!
  • A fine version of the Archetypal Chicago Dog! Neon relish, potato bun, sport peppers, mustard, tomatoes, and Celery Salt. It WORKS with that Scottish Ale!
  • The place is a rabbit's warren of interesting little cubbies-the place was hopping on the Spring graduation Friday- but we had no trouble talking-or being served promptly. Well staffed by good staff!
  • The "Off Kilt er ~ Scottish Ale." I asked our wait staffer, Sam (a knowledgeable young lady) what she would suggest - given that I like Porters. The Scottish Ale is copper malt and understated hops.
  • Love the drinks, menu small but good.
  • Try the sampler. They are all good.
  • The sampler is awesome!!
  • Angus Filet, it's amazing.
  • French dip was ok. The sampler appetizer was very good.
  • New summer seasonal Lemon Tyme Ale rocks!
