My girlfriend and I went here for my birthday. We had a great experience. The food was wonderful and our service was fantastic. Our waiter, AJ, was above and beyond great. He suggested items that I would have never thought of to order and he was right. Everything we had was great. The creamed corn sealed the deal for us. It was just a great night for us. We would definitely come back.

The Cesar Salad was not fresh and the dressing overbearing. The baked potato Re was a rip off at $10. The 40 oz TomahawkSteak was nowhere near the advertised product but admittedly very tasty. Waited almost 30 minutes for the entree after our salad. Sea Blue a bit more expensive but had it all over this one.

1. The food and service was great and that’s what keeps us upcoming back - we are locals and this is one of my favorite restaurants! 🤗
2. They take and honor reservations, which is very helpful in the winter and specially during the tourist season. 🤗
3. The menu has changed, but for the most part still good. There was a lop-sided favoritism toward seafood, which was disappointing because some in our party didn’t like seafood and one person is terribly allergic to seafood. 😔
4. We ate on a Thursday night, which is live music night, and both times the music has been too loud because they set the musicians right in front. My recommendation would be to place the musicians on the balcony or side dining room so that the music just wafts nicely in the background and people can still talk. I don’t go there for the music; so, maybe I just need to go on another night. ☹️
5. We were given one small hard roll and no butter - instead we were given an olive oil with too much garlic. This is not an Italian restaurant so don’t mess up the small stuff. ☹️
6. Overall, I’m coming back for the food and the service as well as the ambience on non-music nights. 🤗
7. I had the Bailey’s Comet as my dessert and it was DIVINE! Keep this on the menu! Both the raspberry and limoncello sorbets were also excellent! 🤗

Dining room had live music at the time of the meal which for a business meal and proved difficult for conversation. Food was average at best for this type of restaurant. Service was very attentive and ultimately the best part of this dining experience. Value for food quality was lacking. They do not compare with other establishments of this type in the Myrtle Beach area for the price. They have a little work to do in my humble opinion.

great atmosphere and very romantic for our late valentines celebration. wonderful services. they took there time and we were never rushed. Each course arrived when desired and food was impeccable. The best salmon my wife has had and perfectly seasoned steaks. Finished it off with some excellent cheesecake. While not cheap it is perfect for special occasions and those that have refined tastes.

Suggested by a co worker who once visited the restaurant. My wife and I were celebrating our birthdays and were staying in Garden City beach for the weekend we are from Charleston. The whole experience was awesome. We started at the bar for a few of there specialty cocktails, which was great. Our server for our dinner, MJ, was very informative and delightful. It couldn’t have been any better. The food was delicious! Thank you 21 Main for a great evening!

Dinner with friends. Service was outstanding. Lobster bisque is a must. Big chunks of lobster in a super rich broth. That alone is worth the visit. I had the prime NY. I was a little surprised, I ordered it medium rare and it came out medium. I did not ask to replace it because that's such a hassle. Maybe the waiter misunderstood or they just missed it, regardless, it was still good.

Everyone else loved their meals. My wife had the pork chop and it was awesome.

Sides were good. The place is a little pricey but I'll go back. Too full for deserts.

Went for a birthday dinner with family. The restaurant atmosphere and entertainment made for an enjoyable evening. Our Steaks were cooked perfectly and everything that we ordered down to the chocolate Creme brûlée was delicious. Our server, Charlene was extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. 21 Main is definitely a restaurant for a special occasion.

Steak was dry, server didn't know what he was doing, manager never checked in on us, had to ask for refills constantly. For what I paid I should have gotten a lot more. Also has promised several things are at the meal I think never made it to my table or had to ask for it repeatedly. I'm most disappointed about the steak not being cooked correctly. It tasted like I was eating London Broil or a cheap sirloin.

We have been to 21 Main a number of times. The food was absolutely sensational. The mussels and lump crab coctail were to die for....it is the best I have ever had. The chilean sea bass was (as always) fabulous with great, unusual sides. The lobster tail and the steak was cooked perfectly. The only slight negative is that the seats are pretty close together and the prices are more expensive than other restaurants in the area, but it is well worth it. If you are in Myrtle Beach, you need to stop at 21 Main Street.

Have dined there many times and still think a meal is not complete without their unbelievably delicious mac and cheese. That and the NY strip bring me back every time. Too many restaurants just have steaks. 21 Main has steaks you can actually savor.

Steak and the service from Marc was great!

I would have given them 5 stars, but the live music basically, hits you in the face, when you walk in is a little too much, especially in the dinning room. While the singer was good, she was loud and hard to have a conversation at our table. I would think the live music would be in the bar area. This is a great place for a date or special occasion, but again, the music was overbearing. Not to be a fuddy duddy, I really like live music, but when spending over $100+, it should be more relaxing and toned down.
