907 Main St. was built in 1872, following the Civil War and was the home of The Dornin and Waldron Tin Shop. Main Street Eatery was founded in 1997 by Chef Urs Gabathuler. Urs and his wife Michaela were known as restaurant industry pioneers in the Lynchburg area before retiring in March of 2017. Over the years, they have founded not only the Main Street Eatery, but The Rutledge Inn and Emil’s, as well. The cuisine at the Main Street Eatery would be described as continental, which is a style of cooking that includes the better known dishes of various Western European countries. The plates at the eatery are notable for pleasing, even creative, visual presentations.
