Main Street Grille

A crackling-warm fire in the new fireplace, settling down into new, comfy chairs, and a favorite lunch or dinner about to be served along with your usual sparking conversation…could there be more? Crisp, late winter days in Niantic next to the broad Bay and the reaches of Long Island Sound make a stay at the Main Street Grille a fine way to enjoy a getaway treat or a special event. Not a bad life, winter or summer!
Chef Frank Grace continues to transplant favorites from his former Gourmet Grille, and these are continuing to appear on the Main Street menu as pleasant surprises for your palate. Try some and make new friends for your taste buds!
Sizzling steaks and chops are complemented by a delectable menu of fresh seafoods and 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 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. Sublime! 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. Chef Frank’s favorites include portabella mushroom torte, grilled mussels, veal Oscar, and picatta, as well as our grilled boneless chicken breast, and boneless rib eye steak topped with garlic and herb butter.
So put the Main Street Grille on your list for pleasant and relaxed dining indoors by a cozy table or—come spring—outside overlooking the water.
