    What is there left to say: Main & Mill Oyster Bar & Tavern is consistently top, by all means. Professional & friendly staff, excellent service, impressive food & drink menu, great price/quality ratio, delicious food and super enjoyable wines by the glass. Keep up the good work!

    Chicken, rice, and gravy had very little flavor. Basic,plain, boring white rice. Bland chicken. Gravy could have come from a jar.

    The Oyster Rockefeller was not particularly liked at our table. I ordered the pork chop and was later told they were out. However, I ended up getting the duck hash and it was very good. Will certainly go back if we are back in town.

    The food was outstanding. The fresh Maryland raw oysters on the half-shell were excellent. The Duck hash with Brussels sprouts and fried potatoes was also excellent. The Crab and Corn Crowder was good but could have used more seasoning/salt. The Chipolte Scallop Linguine was outstanding. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The restaurant was full and a bit loud.

    Dinner for 3 at Main & Mill. Like always, this was a fantastic experience: excellent service (host & waitress), unbelievable food & drink menu, outstanding food & wine by the glass, great ambiance. We never regret choosing this place for a Saturday evening dinner.

    Ordered oysters and they were over steamed. Had to wait a while for our server to come to the table initially. It was louder than expected. The atmosphere is laid back and casual. The main food orders were good and a lot of food for what we expected.

    Food was very good. Cocktails were made well. I would recommend the Mill burger and Parmesan grits. The noise level was pretty loud at times, that made it difficult to talk at a normal level. Maybe that was just specific to that evening and some of the other patrons, but we will be visiting again to try other menu items. Overall very good experience for our date night.

    Overall another very solid performance. My wife and I enjoyed it a lot. Extensive food & drink menu. Our waitress did an excellent job: professional and friendly. One little downside: despite the great preparation, the snapper as such was not very tasteful.

    My husband, myself and a dear friend decided to try Main and Mill. We were greeted by a young man who confirmed our reservation and sat us at a booth (our preference). The waiter was very nice, took our drink order and brought back our appetizer - Bruchetta which was toasted bread with an aged balsamic, chopped tomatoes and cheese crumbles (probably goat). We ordered two of the Scallop on linguine and one Salmon on linguine, all were Alfredo style. For desert, two key lime pies and one strawberry cheesecake. The menu is a bit pricy but delicious. Waiter was excellent. Worth a try

    I loved the exposed brick and individual table lamps. The wall wine cases were beautiful. Our service was a perfect match for serving our needs but not being overly concerned. The food was amazing! Starting with the bruschetta, and then entrees of the roasted duck w orange reduction and potatoes, and the tuscan salmon linguine. We also tried the crab macaroni and cheese. Only complaints, the onions in the linguine were a nice flavor addition, but crunchy and sliced entirely too large for my taste. The crab mac and cheese was again very good but too much of a buttery taste that overpowered the other flavors. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and definitely will return!
