“I have a passion for enjoyable comfort food with a fine dining twist. I believe in paying attention to what's local, fresh, and exciting while always experimenting with regional cuisines, and adding my own personal touch.  My only responsibility is to the guest and to ensure their experience is second to none  and every dish that leaves my kitchen needs to be perfect in an effort to meet that end.”    ~  Chef Joe Schaffer


We were excited to welcome Chef Joe to our family in May of 2012. Since that time Joe has taken his tremendous experience gained from his time at restaurants like Steve & Rocky’s, Grape Expectations, and Tavern 109 and put it to use on our new menu.  Joe is consistently pushing the envelope with new recipe ideas that are implemented on our ever-changing menu, our weekly specials, and amazing wine and martini tastings.  Chef Joe is a consummate professional with exceptional experience while still possessing a passion for his chosen craft... a rare person indeed.



“I love to go above and beyond for my guests and often find that the smallest detail can make the difference between an acceptable experience and a great one.  I truly feel a sense of pride when people leave excited and happy with their experience at Downtown Main and the knowledge that I had something to do with that gives me great satisfaction.”    ~  Jennifer Campbell


In 2009, Jennifer Campbell joined our team at Downtown Main as a bartender.  With her unparalleled work ethic and dedication, she worked her way to General Manager.  Jen is now in charge of the day-to-day operation of Downtown Main and her knowledge of mixology paired with her undying desire to please our guests makes her a tremendous asset.  You will undoubtedly witness Jen's hands-on approach to management and guest satisfaction during each of your visits to Downtown Main.
