    Fantastic food & drink menu. Our choices were delicious. Great ambiance. Service started slow but then picked up. Linen instead of paper napkins and this restaurant gets close to perfect. We love this place.

    The food is always really good. Our waitress this past time was not very attentive or concerned if we were enjoying ourselves. Of course we always tip our 20% but it feels better doing so when we enjoy our server.

    A Saturday at opening time, 4 p.m. We were the first at the oyster bar, which we had not tried before. Alex, our server and shucker, was friendly and genial, answering our questions patiently and helping us decide what quantities of steamed shrimp and oysters to order. Three offerings of oysters -- Cheasapeake Bay (Tanier Island), Rose Bay NC, and Bay River, NC, and we opted for the Rose Bays, which Alex had picked up earlier that day from the company's truck in Greenville. We ordered a pound of shrimp and a peck of oysters, and we later added another half peck. Both were fresh and delicious -- oysters steamed "medium," which was just right for us. Shrimp steamed with Old Bay-type seasoning were large and succulent. Excellent house-made cocktail sauce (Alex's recipe, which boosted the horseradish, making it punchier without being overpowering). Two rounds of draft beers with our meal, and we left with appetites satisfied and thirsts quenched. A completely enjoyable experience, not inexpensive but we considered it fairly priced considering the freshness and quality of the seafood. Had considered going to Sunny Side in Williamston, but Main and Mill is so much more convenient, and food equally good. We will be back!

    The drink selection was good. Our drinks were very good. Had a varied food selection. We came for oysters mainly. Our only option at home closed up. All of the different food selections our party tried were delicious.

    My waitress was very distracted. I had to catch her and ask to put in my appetizer order, then i had to catch her and ask to put in my entree order. Like had to keep catching her while she walked past us. Wife and i felt ignored.

    sixth time here. Main & Mill Oyster Bar & Tavern never disappoints. Excellent and friendly service. Impressive wine list, fantastic food menu. Great taste. One little point of criticism: please replace the small paper napkins by real napkins. Will give your establishment the first-class appearance it deserves.

    Me and my husband ate at Main & Mill Saturday night and it was absolutely delicious!! I knew I wanted oysters, but did not know how to explain it. Luckily, our waiter, I believe his name was Chris, knew exactly what I wanted and helped me decide. The oysters were spot on. They were exactly what I wanted. My husband had the duck, which was also perfectly made. Overall, a wonderful experience. Definitely will return.

    We drove in from the Raleigh area to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. We were pleasantly surprised to find this place. Love the interior decor and ambiance. It’s updated, classy sports bar feel. The food was delicious. I had the Duck, it was excellent so was the pork chops. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. We’d definitely come here again.

    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.
