    Our second time here. Nice menu with great drink & food choices. Our wines by the glass as well as our food were delicious. Excellent service. The only thing left to do is real linen napkins and it would be perfect. We really enjoyed our dinner experience. No doubt, we'll be back.

    This was our 2nd time driving to Main & Mill (from Clayton). Worth the drive! Once again, the food and service was excellent. Got the Belly & Brussels and the Carolina Pork Chop for the 2nd time also. So good!

    Service was slow in the beginning and it took a long time to get to make our order. The salmon was very good but the little potatoes were mushy seemed like they had been microwaved. The ambience was nice. My husband liked his wahoo.

    First time here, visiting from Massachusetts. Excellent & friendly service by host and our waitress. The menu provided a long list of very interesting drink & food choices. The food was fantastic. We had a great evening. When we'll live in Greenville, this restaurant will be on top of our list for dine-out options.

    We have been happy with every trip to Main & Mill. The food is always of good quality and well prepared. The service is professional. And the ambience in the restaurant section is a nice balance between casual and upscale. Prices are reasonable considering the quality of the food.
