Why do they call it "Entrée"?

I recently moved to the USA from Quebec. On every menu they call the main course "Entrée". I have always known an "entrée" to be an appetizer...Why is it called this way here? Is it just that I have been wrong all this time or is this something cultural or local even? Entrée in french means entrance I'm really curious to know what the reason behind this is.
