Our first time eating at Main and Mill and it did not disappoint. Great menu with lots to choose from. The service was good as were the drinks. We hope to return when back in the area.

Love the new space and design. Cocktails, wine list and food choices were wonderful! We had raw, baked and fried oysters in addition to our various entrees. All were excellent! What make this place really standout would be to change the lighting as it is too bright!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the food; however, I am disappointed there was no way to reserve a spot at the Oyster Bar. Apparently, one has to calm on the phone to reserve a seat. We were still able to eat oysters and shrimp at the table, but it's an entirely different feel. I will probably return to the restaurant, but I'll make dang sure to call, especially I I want Shucked Oysters.

Main & Mill has been wonderful both times I have visited. The Cioppino, which is my favorite, is to die for. Service was outstanding.

We took our 3 grandkids there for lunch after church. Not our best move. 2 adults and 3 kids 4 yrs and under and our bill was over $70 and that was with 3
Kids meals. The menu was very limited. One of the kids spilled his water in the table and floor. We cleaned up the water on the table and the water on the floor stayed there until we left so the kids had to step over it. Our waitress was otherwise very nice and helpful.

Great brunch menu and service! Loved the French toast and was glad you had Shrimp and Grits on the Brunch menu.

Had a terrific dinner last night at Main and Mill! Scallops with chipotle cream sauce on linguini was outstanding, just the right amount of heat and spice. Lobster ravioli with shrimp - the special - delicious, as was the salmon. Prices are very reasonable given the high quality of ingredients and the chef’s fine execution. Wine prices are remarkably low. Anthony’s service was friendly and professional. This is a GREAT restaurant! Think Dickinson Avenue Public House but 20%+ less expensive.

It’s quite simple decor but food is good, especially if you love oysters, and service is very friendly.

Very disappointed with the owners decision to avoid us all evening. I believe he was only concerned in talking with someone he knew.
Really don’t know if we will go back which is unfortunate as we like to support our local businesses.

I will definitely be returning to Main & Mill Oyster Bar. Our server, Lucy, was an absolute delight. I ordered the Cioppino and was not disappointed. It was one of the best I have tasted in a long time. The menu offers something for everyone with seafood and daily catch specials, to hamburgers, po boys and southern cooking with a flair.

We all enjoyed our first trip. Everything looks very nice. The service was great. Our table had the flounder, shrimp and grits, hamburger and roast duck. Everyone loved their dish. I had the roast duck just because I wanted to try something different. It was good but would not get it again. None of us could believe that your restaurant has no bread! Gotta have bread with a meal! We will be back to try other dishes and to eat oysters.

We went on a Friday night around 6:30, meeting friends. While our waitress was delightful, the service was slow from the bar and the kitchen. Food was mediocre and expensive, but the drinks were good. The makeover inside looks great. I will give it another try.

I had the shrimp and grits. I have to say it's by far been the best shrimp and grits I've had since I've had them in New Orleans. 2👍👍up!!

We were pretty happy with everything, except how the lightly steamed oysters were presented, in a small white cereal type bowl. It was hard to get too excited about them. Except for that, very satisfied. The apple turnover with cinnamon and brown sugar was the bomb!

The food was absolutely amazing. We had steamed shrimp which is always good but also tried shrimp and grits. I highly recommend shrimp and grits. The grits were so fluffy and the spices were so perfectly married. Our server Destiny was very attentive and pleasant. Great experience and will be back.

Date night disappointment. Food was good, but overpriced (2 drinks, an oyster appetizer and 2 entrees over $100). Expensive mixed drinks with very little alcohol. Lights are way too bright. Could have ambience, but just doesn’t. Expected better. Overall disappointed, but our server was very pleasant.

To be honest...our service and atmosphere was nice but our entrees were over cooked. I was disappointed in the food. Will give it another chance since it would be so nice to have a restaurant close to Ayden that is more upscale. A little doubtful though.

I would recommend getting noise reduction panels for the back room. Sometimes hard to hear conversations at the table and/or the wait staff. Food and everything else was very good.

I took my wife here for our date night and it was our first time at Main & Mill. We had an excellent time and were overly impressed with the quality of the food! The Shrimp and Grits were savory and not too spicy! The waitress Savannah even shared with the cooks that my wife preferred very little spice! Way to make the experience individualized for us! The Pork Chop was the juiciest I have ever had with great flavor! Overall we are very excited to have such a quality restaurant so close to our home! We can not wait to come back!

Only complaint is that I had made a reservation and still had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated once I arrived and there were a lot of open tables available. Also our waitress was unsure of what was available and my brother had to change his order 3 times.
