This was our third visit to this restaurant. First visit was good, second was terrible, and this visit was good. The food was very good and our waiter Rocco was great. Veal chop was excellent and filet was excellent. Ambiance is not on par with a high end steakhouse. Too much like a grill room at a private club. Close off the bar area and make the dining area more intimate.

Our waiter was missing half of the time. Our waters were refilled once. The food was over salted to the point that 2 of the 4 in our party got ill once we returned to the room. We even told our waiter and he seemed to not careOrdered crab CAKES as it states on the menu- received ONE crab cake for $15. Food was cold when we received it. The gravy even congealed as it had sat and waited. Not impressed for our first time there and will not ever return.

This was the best Fillet I ever had, (Even against the best steak houses in Vegas) and at $48 for the 12oz Fillet I thought this was a fair price. The steak was charred outside perfectly and it melted in your mouth! Our bill for two did come out to $198.00 but a few Apps, drinks and wine helped with that total. I am defiantly coming back to 21 Main next time I am in MYR!

We expected a high end restaurant and we were disappointed to find it to be nothing more than a glorified clubhouse restaurant. The food was good but not high end. Very overpriced for the atmosphere of a clubhouse. The only really good thing that we found was our waitress Charleen.
Went once, we won't return.

Awesome from start to finish. Always the best dining experience on the Strand every time. Our favorite and it should be yours too. Two thumbs up to Rocko for making it great. Until next time, we will wait until we can get back to the pinnacle of what they have to offer.

Food and service was spot on. We started with oysters and the bacon. Then We moved onto the filet and pork chop accompanied with a couple glasses of Pinot. Service was fantastic. We had Justin and we will be asking for him the next time we are in.

Food was outstanding and different . Dry age meat was unique and delicious. Not for everyone but great description from the waiter of what to expect. The lobster bisque was so tasty and the soup base had a butternut squash like taste, very rich. The sea bass that night was a little too buttery for my taste but the rest of the table liked it. Apps included burrata, smoked bacon and calamari...all great. We had turtle cheesecake and rasp sorbet for dessert. I RARELY give five stars, save that rating for truly special experiences and I think 21 Main is one of those.

Wonderful birthday week diner with wife.

Every drink, appetizer, entree, side and dessert was fabulous!

Our waiter was attentive and enthusiastic.
Timing of courses was spot on yet not rushed.
Thank you Tyler.

We will be back - and that's quite uncommon for us.

Our thanks to the chef and staff for a delightful evening.

The conversation was difficult due to two parties of ten and eight on our side of restaurant. The restaurant featured a female vocalist who was good but that also impeded our conversation. Our waiter was also serving the party of ten as they kept him occupied excessively. Which in turn ment that water glasses were not filled in a timely manner and led to the omission of a side order, which was removed from our bill. Have dined here in the past and have always enjoyed the food and service. The entertainment is new to me.

From the entrance to the beautiful building, through the mint at the end- everything was perfection. Our meal started with oyster sampler, burrata- very impressed with the balsamic pearls- such an exquisite touch. Our server suggested the tomahawk for 2, carved tableside. It was amazing tender, done to perfect temperature. We accompanied with frites- truffle oil and Parmesan. Our desert was a bourbon bread pudding- I have eaten many places but this was a gem. The choice was perfect- the restaurant was one of the best we have ever been. It is upscale, great steakhouse with delicate touches that put it over the amazing experience!!!

Every item was a treat. The oysters Rockefeller the best in the area. Why tender and properly cooked filet.

On the pricey side, but still a good value

We took our grandson just home from the Air Force serving in Korea. It was his birthday so we wanted to do something really special. Well we hit a home run here. On a recommendation from my husbands co-worker we were so happy. The scallops I had were the best ever....ever.. the guys got a 40 oz tomahawk steak which they devoured. Their huge bake potato was very good. The lemon drop martini yes, yes, yes. The only negative was the cheesecake, it was too dense. Since my husband also bakes we are spoiled with the rich, creamy New York style that he makes. He said he think they put gelatin in it and that what happens. MJ was our server and she was terrific, could not say anything but good about her. Very attentive and her recommendations were spot on. We will definitely be going back. Yes it is expensive but when the food is that good its worth the money.

I am from PA and my boyfriend and I went twice while on vacation in myrtle for a week! this is hands down the best steakhouse i have ever been to!!! I got the pork chop which was best pork chop i have ever had! It was juicy and had some fruit compote on it which was delicious. My boyfriend ordered the filet and loved it. The calamari is also fabulous! One of the best i’ve ever had. The servers are phenomenal, i have absolutely no complaints. The only thing is it’s very pricey but SO worth it!!! A definite MUST TRY!!! i can’t wait to go back!

Three of the four steaks were ordered medium and were cooked much closer to medium well/well done, the fourth steak was ordered as rare and was cooked to medium. Typically wouldn’t care but one bill was $120.00 the other was $190.00 - when you’re paying that kind of money for a dinner you want your food cooked the way you ordered it.

The place was nice. Older crowd. Food was very good. Service was great. The night we went to try and enjoy our wedding anniversary there were two table of older couples that were out of control loud (drunk) wait staff and manager did nothing to try and lower the volume. The table just continued to cross talk over another table trying to eat. It totally ruined the experience for me my wife and other people trying to have a nice dinner. Also as far as dress code don't worry about it couple of people were there in shorts.

The food and the primo service by MARC!!! was fabulous.
That being said, we are likely not to return often as 1) the value is better at other bistros, e.g. Fire and Smoke, Collectors Cafe, etc. All menu items--albeit delicious--were quite pricey; 2) the noise level was a turn off. I suggest--because of the hard surfaces (floor and unadorned windows and display cases, etc) that you add some heavy window treatments to those front windows to muffle the sound. We were a small group, but conversing across the table was a struggle. I challenge you to make your venue more intimate and cozy...befitting the glorious food and the high prices.
