Main Street Eatery, my favorite restaurant

Main Street Eatery

Beginning this month we will be featuring one of Lynchburg, Virginia’s fabulous downtown restaurants.  With a population of about 76,000 Lynchburg has some true “finds” when it comes to dining.  Following the principle of “buying local, staying local” the restaurants we will be featuring are all small in scale, owned and/or operated by locals and more often than not feature locally sourced ingredients that change with the month and season.  All of the restaurants featured are within walking distance to The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast.  So, if it’s almost dinner time and you have not yet figured out what you’re cooking for dinner (and you’re local) review our posts and make a great selection.  Or if the restaurant posts sound intriguing and you live outside of the Lynchburg, VA area call us, make a reservation and tell us where you would like to eat.

Main Street Eatery:

Located at 907 Main Street, Lynchburg, VA 24501 434.847.2526. Chef/Owner Urs Gabathuler and his wife Michelle will take good care of you.  Open Monday-Saturday 4:30 until close.

After much renovation, Main Street Eatery opened in 1998 when downtown Lynchburg was still a ghost town.  The storefront was originally a men’s clothing store and much of the buildings original features are prominent today.  Inviting brick walls, high ceilings, an oversized picture window, cozy booths and elegantly set tables are ready to make your meal special.
