    I do not even know where to begin. This restaurant knows how to deliver an amazing meal, romantic ambiance and superb service! My husband and I were in MB for the week celebrating our first wedding anniversary and picked this spot after hearing good things about it. Our host was a very nice gentleman named Tarvon (sp?) and congratulated us on our anniversary. SI started off with some red wine and oysters on the half shell and my husband ordered calamari friti. For our entree I had the Scallops 21 with the amazing mushroom risotto and my husband had the 20 oz Delmonico (Boneless Ribeye) with a baked potato with all the fixings! For dessert we shared a Tiramasu which they topped with a candle to celebrate our anniversary. Dinner was DIVINE!

    food was good ,atmosphere was good ...however they did not acknowledge the fact that it was my parents 25th wedding anniversary. that was a little disappointing for the upscaleness of the restaurant... other places a lot less classy offer things like a free dessert rose petals on the table or bottle of champagne.

    This was our second visit and loved it. both times. The service is some of the best we have ever had. Matt was very attentive and helpful. We love Russian River wines from California and were able to find one on the list. The food was both beautiful and delicious. We had the diver scallops as an appetizer. (We have never had better.) We had the French onion soup (yummy) and the award winning lobster bisque. (a little sweeter than we expected, but very good. For the entree we ordered the 40 oz prime tomahawk cut ribeye. The entire restaurant looks when it comes out. It is amazing to look at and masterfully cooked. We ordered two sides: creamed spinach and macaroni and cheese. (both delightful). We feed 3 people .

    Our first visit after researching on Open Table. What a wonderful dining experience! The décor and ambiance, the food, and the service were all top rate. We dined on a Monday night so there were not a lot of other customers but enough so that we didn't feel alone there. Our server Bo was very personable and knowledgeable and his recommendations were spot on. Their wine list is very comprehensive.

    We went to 21 Main at North Beach for our wedding anniversary. The food, wine, atmosphere, and service were wonderful. The only glitch we had, and it was not 21 Main's fault, was that they didn't have our reservation from OpenTable - even though I had the email confirmation from OpenTable. The staff was very accommodating and found us a nice romantic spot. Tarver was our waiter and very efficient and friendly without being intrusive. A wonderful dinner experience.

    Our party of four was seated promptly. The atmosphere was sophisticated and cosmopolitan. Our waiter was affable, made suggestions and courteous. Bisque soup was delicious although barely warm. Entree portions were ample. Two of our party commented that some of their food (sushi and sides) were very salty. Waiter continued to be attentive throughout. Prices were on the high side for what we ordered. Had a $50 coupon but bill was still $200 including tip. Overall, a nice dining experience.

    Presentation was 5 Star as was the food preparation and taste. Menu is a little pricey but the quality and taste justified the cost. Only draw back was the time it took to receive the appetizers. Seems as though we waited for 45 mins. after being seated. Once they started serving, all orders were sent to the table in a timely fashion. Still would recommend to friends and go back when we return to the area.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    We booked ahead of time and we sat down at 7:00 pm. We placed our drink order and our food at around 7:10. Our starter arrived at 7:45 along with our main course. I believe the server forgot about the starter and when I asked about it she said the kitchen was slammed. Why not tell your guests upfront that the kitchen was busy. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and one would expect a better level of service. The food was very good, but a pity about the very poor service. May consider going back. Don't lie to your guests, just admit your mistake.

    Amazing food but service left much to be desired...simple things like my water glass being empty for more than 15 minutes and waitress never asked if I would like another glass of wine (two empty glasses) When we were seated, we had one waitress introduce herself and then 10 minutes later another one came to the table and said she would be our server for the evening. Seemed very disorganized. The table next to us had to literally get up to find someone to get additional beverages and had to track someone down when the wrong sushi was served. All four were turning around trying to flag someone down to help. The food was amazing...just so disappointed with service.

    Its been hard to find good food in Myrtle Beach, a lot of chain restaurants and buffets that claim to have great food. After doing an OpenTable search and reading a few mixed reviews we decided to try 21 Main. We were pleasantly surprised to have an elegant meal and very well prepared food from appetizers straight through to dessert. Clams Casino and Crab Cake were both excellent. Strip and Lamb rack were perfectly cooked to order. Bacon Maple Ice Cream with Cherry Crumble was also amazing. Our server Trenton was also very friendly and attentive! Great Experience and worth the extra cost to have decent food!

    When I made the reservation I specifically ask fir a quiet table and noted it was my first time dining. So, when I arrive you seat me in the middle of the restaurant between large parties and ask me if I have dined with you before. Clearly you don't pay attention to the details. Probably won't be back with all the choices in the area.

    My wife and I entered through the beautiful front doors of this restaurant, expecting an enthusiastic and warm greeting by the host or hostess. Instead we stood behind another couple for a full few minutes before anyone at the front desk even acknowledged us even being there. We almost left. Finally we were acknowledged and taken into the dining area where the remainder of the evening was very nice. We were just surprised that a restaurant of this caliber did such a poor job in welcoming its customers.

    What can I say. We brought clients to 21 Main at North Beach, who happen to be celebrating their anniversary. It was a perfect evening. It may be the deciding factor for these New Yorkers to consider buying here in the North Myrtle Beach area. It was the best meal we have had ever in the Grand Strand.

    We have been vacationing in the MB area for many years and enjoy trying the areas's growing upscale restaurants of which 21 Main has become a favorite. We have dined with them many times and commend their staff on a great job. Our recent visit was not a disappointment EXCEPT to find the potato croquets were removed from the menu! They were a special treat and I always anticipated them each of out previous visits except at Easter when they were "not available" and now off the menu. I hope they will reconsider it for the future again as their sides are now just like everyone else's. Otherwise we had a great meal and will be back again.

    Second time at 21 Main; had dinner here last week. Unlike the first review where I gave it very good marks; this time was board line terrible. Mainly since I ate only off the sushi menu. My first dinning experience here, I had a filet with sides and the crab cake app. This go around, ordered only sushi and had the lump crab meat salad. Long story short, the sushi was very bad, first the sushi rice had too much rice vinegar, some pieces seem old and not fresh, wrong fish was given and very slow to get. BUT the biggest issue was they left the blood line in the fish! Big NO NO!!! I guess either sushi chef did not know or they were trying to get a larger yield of the fish. Plus server didn't know which fish was which, needs training!

    we come here each summer and this time the steak was outstanding but the seafood lacked major attention. The shrimp was overcooked and we paid $4 for each shrimp, so we were expecting remarkable quality. The fries that came as a side dish were dry and wrinkly. The presentation was remarkable as usual and the service is always impecable, but not every time can we be blown away by perfect food. We will always be back and try something new.

    Very friendly bartender. He told us that the prime rib at this restaurant was excellent. However, our table waiter said they did not offer prime rib and had not since he worked there. My wife had tuna tartare and I had their filet mignon. The tartare was so-so and my steak was very salty. Everything is ala carte ($31 for the filet and $7 for a sweet potato. Wine, by the glass, was $9 & $11. Overall, it was a good looking restaurant with a very friendly staff but we feel we did not get good value for the $181 we spent.

    Always good food but the noise level is unbearable. Our waiter had no clue on how to service a table. Our meals came in bits a pieces. This restaurant is a great experience when they are half full. When they are full neither the manager, kitchen staff or wait staff are capable of handling the crowd. Much too expensive to tolerate poor service and extreme noise. A few acoustic tiles would help with the noise thing,

    Very pleased, nice upscale venue that shines. Liked the idea of a traditional steak/seafood restaurant fused with sushi offerings. Even thought we didn't have our kiddos for this dinner, pleasantly surprised to see a real child's menu in keeping of the restaurant's theme. The bar tender, Wayne, knew his wines and very helpful. Had a filet with baked potato and a crab cake appetizer. Overall nice find.
