    The door to the patio area was slamming all night. It needs a shock absorbing piston.

    We hadn’t been here in a year or so; our son’s birthday and he chose Third & Main. Service was excellent! Ordered two appetizers- the bread selection appetizer was mediocre- bread was excellent but the cheese spread was tasteless. Just didn’t have the flavor I remembered. The sausage appetizer was top notch My husband& I tried the wagyu ribeye- it was tender but never having wagyu steak- I really didn’t know what to expect on flavor. It was a buttery flavor and of course being a ribeye lots of fat. ( not my favorite). The side of mashed potatoes were dry and lacked much flavor. We also ordered a side of ham and grits- they were the best! They brought my son a birthday dessert- the peanut butter torte- he loved it. We had the crème brûlée - good but not spectacular. Overall good meal but for the price- I think they could step it up a notch. But again service was great and great ambiance.

    The service was top notch! Our server was personable, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We were greeted warmly when we arrived, seated promptly. The cocktails and appetizers were delish. The entrees were just a little uneven. Salmon was excellent and perfectly cooked but the steak was a bit under but flavorful. The special fish dish was interesting but a lacked texture.we will definitely go back when we are in the area.

    Excellent service and food. There were 3 tables upstairs at the time we were. An obnoxious party of four was placed right next to us, which kinda ruined our experience. It would have been nice to have them at one of the other open 20 tables vs right on top of us.

    Everything was superb except for the music. When we sat down the music that was playing was a number in which a woman's voice was shouting against a background of loud banging percussion. It was the sort of music only the youngest clientele would choose. Fortunately, it tuned down, or I would have had to leave. The best meals of my life have been at Third and Main; don't lessen that with unnecessary tacky music, the kind I occasionally hear from passing speeding cars with the windows rolled down.

    We have been customers here for 10 years, and always have a great experience at Third and Main! Their cocktails are exceptional… creative and top shelf! We live the steaks, collard greens, asparagus and more. Especially love the appetizers, too! The service team is flawless at timeliness and attention to your experience. We have also had group gatherings here for up to 25, and it’s a unique and fun place with a lot of character. Two thumbs up!

    Our filet was over cooked, green bean seasoning was overly sweet. Wasn’t really impressed with any of our food it was just kind of meh. We got sat at a table right outside the bathroom a little too close in my opinion to have tables to the bathroom. The women’s bathroom was less than 5ft from our table. Our server was excellent. Overall I would not recommend just based on food quality and price for said quality.

    Third and Main is the ultimate hidden date night. We have been three times now over the last couple of years and even though it is pricy, you get what you pay for. The steak is superb and the drinks are knockouts. I highly recommend this for anniversaries, birthdays, and large groups. The parking is the only drawback and that can't be helped in the small town of Aurora. However, great food and a great atmosphere make up for any small parking issue. HIGHLY RECOMMMEND for a special night.

    We went on Valentine’s Day, and weren’t too happy about that. They had a fixed menu, and would not allow any substitutions of the sides. And when we were there, they were not too busy. So we had to pay for a side we did not eat, and pay for a side we would eat. So that saga ends with a waste of food and a waste of money. Service and food was good.
