The lobster roll could have used just a little more lobster. I wish it had said on the menu that it came with fries — or that our server mentioned it, as I really would have preferred to substitute a small salad.

The food at 74 Main is really fabulous these days. I have been numerous times recently and every single thing we have ordered has been delicious. The ingredients are fresh and top quality. I look forward to returning soon.

We love Milstone and always have. I was grateful to be able to be seated outside for health reasons.... And the maitre d' was very helpful and accommodating--he saved my table after I came in and requested it!
The food service was so-so. I think the woman who waited on us was inexperienced--and that is what most restaurants are experiencing in the wake of the Pandemic.
But the food itself was good--as I remember it (this is the first time we've been out in a year and a half!).

Terrible food! Mussels over cooked, tough, no broth at all; gazpacho tasted of CHILI powder,; Caesar salad old lettuce, processed cheese, stale croutons and dressing from a bottle, and WAIT .... Thai noodles - ZERO vegetables, bottled peanut sauce and 2 rubbery shrimp ($30!). Extremely memorably BAD

We requested a quiet booth for our Anniversary. 74Main accommodated us with a quiet
booth in the back part of the dining area. Service was very good with each course well timed to give us a relaxing experience. We ordered from the standard menu which had an adequate selection. We both had the pan fried Cod which was accompanied by artichokes and potatoes. A good combination. We topped that off with Cream Brule and Chocolate Moose pie. We had an enjoyable afternoon.

Everything was quite delicious. Except the three oysters (for $11!) which were so tiny there was barely any taste to them.

The menu was varied and included both comfort food (tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich - yum!!) and varied cuisine for all palates. Dessert included old favorites and new options. Creme brulee is still THE BEST!

Our server was pleasant, engaging and super considerate. We had a disabled guest and an elderly guest - both were treated marvelously and patiently. It was a wonderful experience and fulfilled our expectations for the farewell lunch we were holding for these two special people.

We needed a dinner out after months of Covid related lockdowns. We were fully vaccinated, so we decided to go to our local upscale, socially distanced seating restaurant. We were well rewarded at 74 Maine at Millstone.

Food, service, and atmosphere were spot on, and made our return to dining a great night out. Date nights are back!

Staff was super nice and accommodating. It was Mother’s Day with a special menu. We were a little disappointed because we love the regular menu but the food was still good. We were originally at a high booth but didn’t like the lighting. The staff had no problem seating us in the bar instead.

We dined out on a Friday night. I had the Winter Salad and my husband had the Shrimp & Mussels appetizer with garlic bread. Both were quite good, with 5 starts given to the Shrimp & Mussels. The broth was to die for. I had seared scallops and my husband had the Atlantic Salmon. Both were cooked to perfection and had good flavor. Service was efficient, wine selection res[pectable and ambience was as expected in the COVID environment.
This was our 1st meal out since March 12, 2020 and we chose 74 Main/Millstone to celebrate. Our meal was most pleasant and we will continue to patronize this restaurant.
