We recently had lunch at this restaurant while we were touring vineyards. All sandwiches and salads are made fresh when ordered. The artisan bread is also made locally. In addition, they have a wonderful selection of local wine and canned goods. The service was quick and very friendly. It's amazing when you have service with a smile!!! I highly recommend... More

We spent the day touring wineries with friends and had made a reservation at 21 & Main on the recommendation of the Laurel Gray winery owner. It was the perfect place to end the day. The building is historic and the decor is interesting with the original freight elevator as a centerpiece and wine bar upstairs. Service was excellent. We... More

It was absolutely delicious!!! The waitress and service were great! She explained to us how the menu works and how the entrees are really big enough for more than... More

Driving from Carlisle, PA to Charleston, SC we chose Jonesville as our stopping place because of its proximity to 21&Main. We had a choice of restaurant or wine bar and chose the wine bar. We got upstairs to find it almost empty which suited us fine because we got to ask lots of questions. "Good" were the the drinks, a... More

We had heard this little restaurant was good, but I don't think we fully expected the unique and diverse menu to be so satisfying. The building is cozy, well decorated and hip. A nice surprise in Elkin. Service was just right. Whatever you do, don't miss the filet. An absolute treat. Perfectly prepared, tender and a whopping 10 ounces for... More

First of all, this restaurant is tucked away in sleepy Elkin and you would never guess that a first class restaurant like this would be there. We had reservations for eight. There are many interesting entrees on the menu and it was hard to settle on one item. We chose two family style entrees - the whole chicken and roast... More

What a surprise to find an upmarket gem in a small town. We went there because of the TA reviews, on a quiet evening. The staff had some time to talk with us, which is great for out-of-town folks like us. The restaurant is in an old two-story storefront, and the old brickwork has been preserved nicely. Great apps that... More

The new menu was terrible. The pairings on plates were poor and there is a lack of variety on entree options. The filet was over seasoned and pork was rare and tough. The menu was predominately heavy with too much use of bacon, potatoes, and cheese. Green salad options were lacking. Side portions were too large. On the other hand,... More
