It was a last minute trip Labor Day weekend to the beach. My boyfriend and I saw the restaurant as we passed by and thought we'd try it after a late day on the beach. It was classy inside and the waitress was attentive and pleasant. The star of the night was the chef with the most excellent meal that we kept talking about the next day! My boyfriend had the Shrimp and Grits (cake form) and I don't even care for this dish usually but this was fantastic! I had the Signature Scallops with the bacon and vidalia jam on top.....scrumptious! I asked to meet the chef and told him he needed to be on the TV show "Top Chef"! Bravo! Since this is known as a prime steakhouse we can't wait to go back and try that!

We had dinner here for our anniversary. It was very nice and our waitress (MJ) was attentive and very nice. We enjoyed our time there and would like to have her as our waitress again. The food was excellent. We ordered the cheese tray to begin and that had three cheeses , a fig spread, and pickled Brussels sprouts. I was hesitant but the Brussels sprouts were amazing. We both had filet’s which were cooked to perfection. We shared Mac and cheese and asparagus. Our complimentary glasses of Champaign was a nice way to end the night.
It’s pricy but worth the money.

We came here with seven people including three children 4 and under. We wanted good sushi, but we found out they dropped it from their menu in January and replaced it with a raw bar. Now it is essentially a really expensive steak house with a really expensive raw bar. We should have walked out after we saw the prices, but we had been greeted warmly at the hostess stand. They remembered us because we had rented a room and had a great meal between Christmas and the New Year. But if you want to go there now and have wine with your meal you are going to have a hard time eating for under $50 per person. If you want steak it will be closer to $100. The prices are now up there with Sea Blue and Bistro 90, but the food and wine lists are not nearly as good. Probably won't be back.

The food was top notch and service was impeccable, from the hostess, to the manager and to our waiter, Joseph. I had the calamari which was not on the menu, it had chili aioli and bacon pomodoro dipping sauce with it but the battered and fried banana peppers set it off for me! Then my husband and I split the 40 oz. Tomahawk, ughhhh... just so delicious! I didn't even use the demi glace. We had the collards and mac n cheese for sides, both perfect compliments with our tomahawk. For dessert, I had the Trifle w/ Sangue di Giuda. Amazing! We enjoyed everything and will definitely be back when we vacation in North Myrtle Beach again!

Service was great!!! The 12 oz filets we ordered were center cuts and perfectly cooked and delicious. Caesar salads were great as was the creamed corn and baked potato.
The problem was with our Asparagus. We saw a beautiful plate of Asparagus be served to someone at the bar so we ordered it. Ours couldn’t have been more different. Thin stalks and over cooked. Very disappointing and when we called it to their attention, instead of bringing us a better serving, they just said they would take it off the bill. It was not that late in the evening so this response by management was disappointing.

As always, 21 Main at North Beach delivered an astounding meal. We’ve been coming to this spot every summer since they opened for a date night and it never fails to impress. The lobster fondue, lobster bisque, scallops, and shrimp and grits were all fresh and prepared with great care and craft. The wine selection was very wide and the aperitifs were delightful. We couldn’t fit in desert; however, the selection was sophisticated yet simple. Service is always friendly and welcoming. You cannot go wrong with this place if you are looking for excellent food presented with laid back coastal elegance. Thanks for another wonderful meal!

We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was nothing short of amazing, as always. Our favorite bottle of wine was waiting at the table upon arrival and the food was absolutely delicious. MJ was very sweet, friendly and we really enjoyed her service. Combine all of that with the finishing touch of a salted caramel creme brulee for my wife's birthday and it was a perfect night out. Thank you for continuing to do it right!!

Great place, I think the price scares off some people, all in all for the $75 extra bucks I spent here, compaired to other similar star rated restaurants, was well worth it...service was attentive but not pushy, food was great, the tables had some space around them, you could slide your chair out without bumping into the next table, and no rush to get you out the door. I'll be back when we vacation next year.

I had the special bone in aged ribeye and paid more for it than any other steak I’ve ever had and it was all fat. I had a few bites that were meat but they were hard to find. My lobster bisque was cold and the marshmallows on top of our dessert were scorched charcoal and made it taste burnt. I was very disappointed in the quality. I was told the lobster Mac and cheese was a must but was not impressed with that either. It was a bummer. I dined with a few friends. Our husbands are there the night before us and raved about it so we couldn’t wait. Seems like it’s not consistent but if you catch them on a good night, it’s delicious.
