The tuna poke was very good and the crab cake sandwich was excellent and tasty. It was very crowded on a busy Friday evening but we really did not have to wait for service. It was very pleasant sitting outside and enjoying summer evening. The live music was a plus.

Our first visit to Mainland Kitchen, so we weren’t sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The Market Bowl salad was terrific, full of healthy, fresh ingredients. The edamame added protein, so I could’ve done without the addition of grilled shrimp, which were a little dry. My husband had a Caesar salad and the crab cake sliders, both of which he liked a lot. We’ll go back for informal, everyday dining, probably not for a special occasion.

We celebrated my son’s birthday. We experienced the ropes course, zip lines, and go karts for the first time. We had dinner following the activities. The staff was friendly and helpful. We’ve been twice before for dinner but this was our first time doing the activities. We had a great time and will definitely be back.

Went for Father’s Day family. We have been to the Mainland many times, more for the atmosphere than the food but we were pleasantly surprised that the food has really evolved. Everyone was very happy with their meals.
Service was great but like everywhere else right now they are short staffed. That being said, our waiter was great and took great pride in working there.
