  • "Have been to 21 Main several times, but it was my husbands Birthday and he wanted to go to a very quiet relaxing place. This restaurant has it. A very enjoyable even, plus the food was very good. I totally recommend this place for a special date or occasion."

  • "21 Main is a great local steakhouse that provides great service, nice ambience and good food. It is a steakhouse so it is going to be a bit costly, but when you compare it to the traditional NY steak restaurants it's a good value."

  • "4 years ago I went on my first date with Alice and 4 years later we are back again. We go to 21 Main for all our special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, New Years Eve and we have even had some wine pairing dinners. 21 Main is a special place for us. The service and food have been excellent from our first time to our most recent visit! Steakman"

  • "We have been to 21 Main before and went to celebrate our anniversary. As always the maître-d was excellent, the service was excellent and the food was spectacular. Each time I have gone, including when we had my son's rehearsal dinner there in 2009, the food has truly been outstanding."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "In a region with so many notable steakhouses, 21 Main is just another address. Very clean and friendly service that is professional despite their servers youth. Less notable is their rather uninspired menu of common items prepared in a somewhat pedestrian way. The Delmonico had the right temperature but was I'll trimmed and without a good crusting. Mashed potatoes were nearly as bland as instant. The foods were all nicely presented. Don't get me wrong, it is adequate but not memorable (except the check). The good news is rudimentary cocktails and nice house wines are not expensive at all. Go to say you've been but, it won't be one of those "I am definitely coming back here" evenings."

  • "- the price was fair - the ticket time was unacceptable. Between appetizers and dinner was over 30 minutes. I ordered a 20 oz steak which had over 6 oz of fat. Talk about "mark up" - the only thing that made this dinner enjoyable was that the dinning room was almost empty so the ambient noise was down."

  • "Always so welcoming, always delicious food served with professionalism and congeniality. Nice to see some summer items....the tuna tartare appetizer is both beautiful & delicious, skirt steak with bok choy slaw uses local ingredients well, standby steaks, seafood.....all top notch! Tom, our usual server, is both professional and personable. He remembers our preferences and never fails to enchance our dining experience at 21 Main."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Highlights were the shrimp bisque, bread, mashed potatoes,and Lobster Wontons. The tuna tartar app was tasteless. Salmon was unimpressive, but the escarole was tasty. Would have liked more of a selection of wines by the glass. My husband thought the skirt steak was too chewy. We expected more/did not meet our expectations."

  • "Had dinner with friends we hadn't seen for awhile and since I chose where we were going to eat I was very pleased with the choice as were our friends. The experience was pleasant from the moment we left our car to the valet parking personnel. Upon entering 21 Main we were greeted by a very pleasant and friendly maitre`d. After being seated at our table, our waiter came over and introduced himself, a very nice young man. The food was great, as was the service, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening."

  • "The atmosphere was absolutely wonderful. I went there for my 1 year Anniversary and let me tell you I was not disappointed. The staff was amazing the food was amazing... The whole experience was amazing. I will be going back for future events."

  • "This was our first time at 21 Main for a pairing! We arrived a 6 and there was only a family there so it was quiet! The first course was a pan seared salmon! I have never liked salmon so I was a little skeptic. It was fabulous, best I ever had and would eat it again here! Second course was veal chop which was just as good. Third was two pieces of pound cake between nitro ice cream filled with fresh berries! Excellent! And yes the wines were good too!"

  • "I took my family there for my wife's 40th birthday,and it was awesome. We were very happy with the service. They were very attentive,and use a personal touch. The food was amazing. We have been to many high end steakhouses,and this is right up there with them. Our food was hot,seasoned perfectly,and cooked to our liking. My children had a wonderful dinner as well. They are very kid friendly. I would recommend going there,get a filet and some risotto!"

  • "I chose this restaurant for my wife and to celeberate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was everything that we would hope that it would be. The food was top quality, portions were large, and the service was fantastic. We would definitely come back again and would definitely reccommend your restaurant to all looking for someplace special to dine."

  • "We had read mixed reviews. Our server was never around unless someone told her we needed something. We had to ask to have her come to our table. We didn't know the specials until we heard another server telling a table next to ours. The salads were overdressed; bread was cold and boring. The sauce for the Mussels Casino was excellent. The bread was a huge help in getting the good bits mopped up. My petite filet didn't act like it was a filet. Very stringy and it didn't have a good char, but steak temps were good. The whipped potatoes and onion rings were fabulous.The green beans were old and tough and barely heated through - raw. Nice wine list. Definitely, try the Pelligrini Cab Franc - incredible wine. Food not worth the money."

  • "We went to 21 Main for a special occasion and were very pleased. Steaks, lobster cocktail, and lobster tail were all delicious. Salads and sides were great too."

  • "Dining close to the bar area on a game night is not advised unless you wish to watch the game and partake in the commentaries. It was loud and festive. Food was still excellent."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 54th wedding anniversary on June 11.We went to 21 Main. It was a wonderful experience,The manager Dion walk the floor talking to all his patrons,and Tom our waiter was great,would return. Thanks to our son Joe and his wife for the gift card. The portions were more than enough,The risotto was great as was the Sea Bass. Totally relaxing evening."

  • "Took my fiancé, Alice here for her birthday, I had ordered flowers for the table and a birthday cake through, Audrey's bakery in Sayville that is affiliated with 21 Main. Had a wonderful dinner, Tom our waiter brought out Alice's birthday cake with lit candles and sang a soft Happy Birthday to Alice! it was very touching, Alice was surprised and happy!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • " The food was very good, the risotto was outstanding! The service was excellent, the only problem was it was listed as Romantic, but we were seated in a completely empty place then they sat a party of 5 children right next to us. All they did was scream, the manager said he was unable to move them or us and it was a family restaurant. So I would not consider this as Romantic, just a very expensive children's dining restaurant. "

  • "I have been passing 21 Main for my entire life. I was raised in Islip township. I love steak and have been to many notable steakhouses around the world. I was extremely pleased with the food. The spinach was the best that I have ever tasted. In addition, the staff was the most pleasant of any restaurant that I have ever visited. My husband and I will definitely dine here again."

  • "Went on Mother's Day & the service was great, very warm & friendly. Food was delicious as well as artfully displayed. We had an appetizer, 4 main courses, two glasses of wine & a dessert spending about $230 so it's spendy but worth it on special occasions. Try the nitro ice cream... Wonderful!"

  • "The maître dee visited our table numerous times. Even the buss boys were amazing. We had a 3 year old with us. They had chicken fingers for him. The maître dee made sure told the 3 year old that the chicken fingers were his favorite. The waiter established a relationship with us like we've been friends forever. Anything we asked for was their immediately. It was Mother's Day. Other restaurants we've been to on a holiday you can tell the staff is overwhelmed. Not the case here. No rush. Waiter easily available. Very comfortable atmosphere."

  • "Very nice high end steakhouse where you are definitely treated "special". Certainly on the pricey side but a definite consideration for special events or romantic dinners. Never felt rushed and appreciated the visit to our table by the proprietor!"

  • "What happened to the restaurant it was one of our favorites... It seemed all was confused on how to serve... Had a porterhouse for two... It was left on the table we served ourselves. The steak was good I just wish the service was what it used to be! Did you change owners? Don't think I will be coming back!"

  • "The food was good as usual as was our waiter. The only complaint was that some of the group didn't finish the meal and wanted to take their meals home. The bus boy was quick to remove the plates from the table without asking who wanted their meals wrapped, there was a lot of sides still left that were taken off the table quickly with out asking. All in all only 1 person in our group of 6 got to take food home - "

  • "We enjoyed our dinner tremendously. This was a first visit. We are so pleased to find a good steakhouse close to home. The selection of appetizers were of good variety and I especially loved the crabmeat cocktail. That was a plus when I saw that on the menu before we decided upon a restaurant to choose to celebrate our anniversary. The steaks we ordered were cooked perfectly. My husband had the porterhouse and I had the filet mignon. We plan to return sometime very soon. "

The service in the bar - poor.....if you were not a regular do not except to be waited on with a normal time frame. Also the outside setting and inside is nice but the crowd attire is very very casual. Not a place I would go out of my way to return."
