Dive restaurant with substandard food. The service was outstanding and the only redeeming feature. Ordered fried chicken which was ok but I didn’t eat the mushy green beans or potato salad

Enjoyed a Saturday night dinner with family and friends. Drinks and appetizers were a great start with the Dish Puppies and Calamari. Dinner was excellent. Among our groups orders were the bourbon salmon, the steak & potato, and the shrimp and grits. All were worthy of another visit. The bourbon bundt cake was an excellent finish to the evening.

The staff was friendly and attentive, but not oppressive or hovering.

We enjoyed our evening and we would definitely return for another night out!

The food was good, we went out for a Mother’s Day brunch. My mom loved the Buffett. The mimosas were overpriced I must say. $7 for a flute?! You can go elsewhere in the city and get a large for $3. Other than that it was great!

Sunday brunch buffet was just OK. Food was often empty for long periods of time. At one point I went up & there were only a couple chafing dishes that had anything in them at all. Things were not quickly refilled. It was Mother's Day, but the place was not really that busy when we were there. Food was decent, not bad for the price. More affordable than some other brunch buffets. Gravy tasted like it came from a powdered mix, biscuits seemed like the frozen kind you can buy at the grocery. Not bad by any means, just not really any better than Frisch's or Shoney's. Service was very good, waitress was attentive & kept our drinks filled.

The menu has a great selection and the store was beautiful however, the food was not seasoned well and a bit greasy. The walnut-berry salad was to die for.

Great service with a smile! The fried pickle appetizer was delicious, but the entrees were just so-so: lackluster shrimp and grits could use some jalapeno, not impressed with the greasy hot brown (but this is a local dish so maybe it's always like this).

Really generic food and subpar ambiance. I picked this place blindly because it was listed as "southern" food which I thought some in my party would like. The food was pretty good and people were satisfied. Our waitress was awesome also but overall the location is dark, and greasy smelling. Nothing special to report.

In town for the weekend and looked online for something close by. We arrived on a Fri. 4/20 at noon and the door was locked although hours posted said open at 8am. Customers walked up confused with no sign posted. Tried phoning and only answering machine. No idea. Went back the following day and was told there was a private event. We did go for brunch on Sat. as it is 3 min. from Hotel. Ordered the avocado toast which said came with Spring Salad. No salad but a not so fresh bowl of fruit. The avocado was not even on the toast just a bit sliced on the side of the plate. Overall not very good at all and would not go back.

We have eaten at Dish twice before a show. Both experiences were excellent. The bourbon burger is phenomenal. The calamari and stuffed mushrooms appetizers are delicious. My husband enjoyed their cocktails. Our server was helpful, and the food arrived quickly. It’s a short walk from the theater.

The folks at Dish on Main were happy to make a sandwich for my friend that wasn’t on the menu. It looked excellent. I rated the food a bit low because I am not a fan of the taste of liquor in dishes. I ordered a dish which obviously had liquor in it and I didn’t realize.
