The food and ambiance definitely deserve 5 stars! The filet is amazing as is the shrimp. This is a must on all of our visits to North Myrtle.

Excellent food and service. Prime steaks and seafood the specialties. Wife had the pork chop, I would rate it in my top 3 all time. I had the filet, excellent.

This place is great for all occasions. The food has always been good, the service majority has been good as well, and overall it’s a great place amongst the many bad locations within Myrtle. All the servers are super polite, and well mannered, but there’s...one person named Mark I believe? Who is a manager at the location. I’ve eaten there dozens of times, and I consistently see him belittle his staff, put them in uncomfortable situations. He’s always directly rude to them, and I honestly do not believe he has any reason to not be let off there. Being in a successful restaurant industry myself, managers are suppose to be respectful, but have a good sense of control in the locations. It’s disappointing I see someone who doesn’t really know how to properly manage constantly treating workers like they’re emotionless dogs, and I heavily think it would be a five star location without him taking away from everyone’s positivity, and overall setting down the mood.More

This restaurant is was of the best of the few fine dining restaurants in the area. Service, ambiance and food are always spot on. Steaks are our fav and always cooked just as ordered.

Today was my wife’s birthday and we are staying at 1905 North Towers. We were told at office to eat here. We called today at 1:10pm left voice mail. I had to call back as they never returned my call. When I talked to them...they said they couldn’t here my voice mail, when I could hear them perfect. They are a poor excuse at following up. With this happening I would never eat at this place. Just think if this happen probably the service is the same.More

This is my favorite place in town! I loved the ambiance---the food and drinks are amazing! And our service was perfect. If I was in town for one night only, this would be my pick! We will be back

By far the best lobster bisque we have ever had and we have tried a lot around the country! The tomahawk ribeye was also amazing. Great service as well!

I don't consider myself a food snob or particularly hard to please, but when paying $250 for a dinner for two, I think it is reasonable to expect a better than average experience. But I can honestly say that dinner at our local low-to-mid-range, chain...steakhouse blows away the experience my wife and I had here, both in quality of the food and in quality of service. When I compare the average ratings here to our experience I find it hard to believe we ate at the same restaurant. My wife ordered an 8 oz. filet mignon, cooked medium. What she received was stringy and tough, almost like a completely different cut. Half was overcooked and dry, the rest was undercooked, almost rare. I had the 20 oz. dry-aged ribeye, medium rare. This was a complete disappointment. It came cooked closer to medium, and was dry and tough. It also lacked any of the expected tender buttery goodness that dry-aging normally imparts. The service was also sub-par. Our meat arrived without knives. We had to wait several minutes for our waiter to show up so we could ask for some, and several more for him to return with them. Not once did our waiter refill our drinks. Our desserts were delivered without utensils, so for a second time we got to sit and stare at our food while waiting for a way to eat it. These are the kinds of mistakes that would be frustrating at your corner diner, but are completely unforgivable at a place that presents itself as a fine dining establishment. Even the desserts were disappointing. My wife's creme brulee was just plain bad. The custard was almost runny and had a strange, unpleasant flavor. There was no caramelized sugar on top. My cheesecake was at least decent; however I've had cheesecake costing 75% less that was every bit as good if not better. All told, I really am confused by the disparity between our experience at 21 Main and the average review scores here. I suppose we could have caught the place on a bad night, but given all that was wrong it is hard to believe that out experience was unique.More

We ordered the filet mignon’s. Mine was the 14 ounce the wife ordered the 8 ounce. We both ordered our steak medium. We also ordered mushrooms and mashed potatoes. I had the Caesar salad, which turned out to be the best part of the meal....The mashed potato’s were dry and clumpy and the mushrooms were salty. The stakes came lightly charred and lacked that steakhouse flavor we were looking for. The 14 oz was served medium raw and lacked flavor. The 8oz had better char, but was slightly under cooked. We had two cocktails with our meal which drove the total price to $200. For that I’d expect a better cooked meal. I won’t comment about the service because most restaurants are struggling coming out of COVID.More

Excellent, excellent what else can I say. Have been to great steak houses in New York, San Francisco, Chicago and many other cities. This place is in the same league as the best I have ever had. The wedge salad to start with was just...delicious. We then got the 14 oz. New York strip, cooked to a perfect medium rear and what great flavor, just excellent. We got the creamed spinach with Mac and cheese and mushrooms as our side dishes, also excellent. You must definitely give the 21 Main a try. You will be very glad you did I promise. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️More

They didn't offer happy hour when we were there. They have a great wine and cocktail selection.

It's pretty casual down here but this is a pretty classy place so we always wear sundresses or a nice pair of pants (long or cropped) and a nice top ... a coverup is good too since it's pretty cool insite.
