I've eaten dinner here a few times and always been impressed, especially since this is Newport News and the food quality at 99 Main is on par with most fine-dining experiences you could have in a big city like London.

She was very knowledge about the menu, made EXCELLENT recommendations, and provided very attentive service. Our food was top notch. The mussels were some of the best we have ever had. We both selected different... More

While service was a little slower than usual at my most recent visit, it was always superb at previous ones. The problem was something in the kitchen, but our server kept us informed and didn't charge for dessert.

With its superlative hosting, fine food & wine and cozy atmosphere, you'll feel like you're a Star when you are here. From the French Onion Soup to the Crisp Duck and Brussels to the Garlic Mussels in White Wine, 99 Main has shortage of ways to impress. Additionally, parking is convenient an reserved for the restaurant. Try the Bar area... More

Recently my wife and I went here for the second time, along with another couple. The food is very good, and actually reasonably priced for what you are getting. I love lamb, and decided to try the lamb Bolognese and was not disappointed. My friend tried the veal shank and found it to be a bit tough and disappointing, but... More

We had dinner at 99 Main on Oct. 19 and it was exceptional. There were 8 of us so plenty of variety to taste. I had the Fried Oyster salad and duck breast....both were flavorful and delicious. I'd go back for the oyster salad alone....it was so good and not like any thing I have had before. Our host had... More

My husband & I visited 99 Main Restaurant while visiting in Newport News, VA last weekend. The meal was wonderful. I had a salad with egg plant and spinach. It was delicious but way too large. My main course steak/with oysters (fried) was all wonderful. My husband was equally impressed by his meal as well. The restaurant is in the... More

We have lived within a short distance of 99 Main for many years but have never given it a try. I have heard people say it has become dated or tired so I wasn't anxious to try it out. We went on a whim when we got an unexpected babysitter. We had a DELIGHTFUL dinner. Our waitress was charming and... More
