Main Street Grille

Well, here you are: a lovely day in downtown Niantic, next to the blue vistas of Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound, drinks on the table and fabulous appetizers and delicious meals to come. Not a bad life, here by the beautiful sea.


The Main Street Grille in Niantic has added a new water-view from the patio and deck, and a great chef to expand the dining specialties at 252 Main Street. Continuing the legacy of the Constantine family on Main Street—and the owner’s celebrated Frank’s Gourmet Grille—the Main Street Grille offers new gourmet taste-tempters and ever-popular comfort-favorites.. The spacious patio and deck are complete, and in the meantime the Main Street landmark remains a friendly place with fabulous food.


The classic sizzling steaks and chops are supplemented with a delectable menu of fresh seafoods and seasonal specials, plus pastas, soups and salads, and sandwiches. Lunch-sized portions of BBQ pulled pork, reubens, grilled portabella mushroom sandwiches go well with sides of fries or coleslaw for a tasty midday repast…and dinner choices include the full-catch Fisherman’s Platter, replete with cod, Stonington scallops, and jumbo shrimp in your choice of servings: batter-dipped, lightly dusted deep fried to a golden brown, or oven-roasted with lemon-herb butter. Beyond tasty!


Top-grade steaks abound: bacon-wrapped Filet Mignon is topped with house-made garlic and herb butter, and other oven-roasted specialties are stuffed pork chops, veal scallopini, shepherd’s pie with braised beef tips, and shrimp scampi. Recent imports from Chef Frank’s grille are portabella mushroom torte, grilled mussels, veal Oscar, and picatta, as well new items like our grilled boneless chicken breast, and boneless rib eye steak topped with home garlic and herb butter.


So put the Main Street Grille on your list for pleasant and relaxed dining indoors by a cozy table or outside overlooking the water. It’s open seven days a week, serving lunch and dinner starting at 11 a.m. Your reservation is welcome at 860.739.5300 or through the website at If you haven’t seen us for a while, stop in and prepare for a treat!
