The restaurant has put up individual cabanas with heaters in back yard. A great idea! Lunch offers shrimp and grits that are nothing short of superb! In fact all of the lunch items we had were great. Staff is great too. Highly recommend.

Took a midweek day trip to Marshall. No outside tables so got carryout. Wife got shrimp and grits which she graded a B but the container was not sufficiently secured and gravy got all over her. I got a pulled pork sandwich which was positively...ordinary except for the excessive salt. No bbq sauce and the amount of coleslaw was a joke. $30 for this lunch is silly. The day was saved by dessert across the street at Red Truck.More

Behind the restaurant is some empty space, WAS some empty space. Now the home of individual cabanas. Three sides covered with plastic sheets, one side open. You might be able to see other diners, but they are definitely not in sneezing distance. And there is...a BONUS: excellent food and an attentive wait staff. Sonia got us settled and started. My husband enjoyed a SMASH BURGER , and I had the PITA , a little messy with the ample hummus. Our grandchild chose the VEGETARIAN MUSHROOM SOUP (overly salted, I thought) and a nice SALAD. We all shared a CHOCOLATE TRIFLE. They have little compressed hand wipes that you dip in a special glass tomoisten them. This was a very enjoyable experience.More

On a recent Sunday evening, we came here to celebrate an anniversary. Their a- la-carte menu is quite varied with several delectable sounding vegetarian dishes. In the kitchen is a big wood-fired hearth oven which cranks out steaks, fish, veggies – all with an enticing...smoky back note. The owners, who also run the kitchen, are great believers in supporting local farms and many of the menu items contain locally sourced, super fresh ingredients. Our first bite, was crafted from a local wild mushroom, just harvested, fried and served on a mini-bun with pickle and mayo...we could not tell it apart from a chicken sandwich only it was one (big) bite, much cuter and tastier than anything from Popeye’s or Mickey D’s. A wild mushroom! We were lucky enough to score a table in the kitchen, so watching the action was an awesome experience for us foodies. All evening we interacted with the chef and other cooks as they closely watched us smack our lips over the dishes we had watched them prepare. We were celebrating so we chose the Chef’s five-course tasting menu, served family-style for the table. The first app was a piece compressed watermelon served with little squares of feta cheese on artistic drops of basil aioli. Unique combination of sweet and savory, but it really worked. The first entrée was a beautiful piece of slightly smoky salmon from the hearth, sitting on a bed of beets, carrots, hazelnuts and figs. We didn’t leave anything on the serving plate. This was followed by perfectly roasted piece of Bison strip steak on a bed of black bean salad, and topped with aromatic tomatillo sauce and honey-lime crema. I don’t recall ever having Bison but it was very flavorful and the sauces gave the meat just the right tang. The dessert course was half of a honey & olive oil poached local peach covering an unbelievable olive oil cake, with lemon mascarpone and basil oil. In my view this was the star of the meal! And then just as we were sitting back, the chef/owner brought over a just torched fig to share and a crisp dessert wine from Linden Vineyards, as a nice gesture to celebrate out anniversary. A great ending. The food preparations are not at all “foo foo” or pretentious as we think of some hi-end fine-dining establishments, but all the dishes we tasted and saw were creative, well thought out and excellently prepared. The seating options at FIELD & MAIN are very safe and varied like we’ve never seen. All staff are masked all the time. In addition to our kitchen table, there are several small rooms spread throughout the main house with well-spaced tables, there is an inviting cute patio and a handful of private cabana’s set up in the yard for a truly safe and even romantic dining experience. This was easily one of the best total dining experiences we’ve enjoyed in a quite a while. Reservations are recommended.More

I love the outdoor cabana platforms they created for COVID-19 and I hope they keep them. We walked away from a restaurant that wasn’t able to space guests responsibly, so we appreciate restaurants protecting guests and staff. The food was good, but I recommend coming...for lunch since lunch is more reasonably priced. I didn’t realize they didn’t offer substitutions for the lunch side, so it was very difficult to eat low carb. Why can’t a restaurant offer a non-starchy veggie as an option? Overall, the food was good, but the service & atmosphere was great.More

On the recommendation of a friend, I scheduled our anniversary meal as lunch at Field and Main. First time eating out since the pandemic started. I reserved an outside cabana for lunch. Were we surprised. They have 7 cabanas, all spaced nicely apart. My wife...felt super safe. Our waitress, Amanda, was very attentive and knowledgeable about the meu and restaurant history. Our food was delicious ( crab cake sandwich with beet risotto, pastrami and crispy potatoes). Dessert put a satisfying end to the meal (fruit custard and chocolate pudding). All and all, the entire experience was quite enjoyable and my wife has already started talking about a return in the near future.More

We got takeout from Field & Main over the Labor Day weekend. The crab cake sandwich was very good, but for the price it deserves a much better roll (perhaps on a toasted brioche roll)...it comes on a soft potato roll which is not a...good choice (IMO) for the superb crab cake (the star of the sandwich). The crispy potatoes with roasted garlic was very good and for dessert, the chocolate trifle was outstanding. We will definitely eat here again. Their outdoor (pandemic) dining area is very well set up - nice spacing with privacy/social distancing with their individual tent covered tables. I would have applied five stars for the meal, but the potato roll takes a bit away from the excellent crab cake.🙂More

This was our first dinner out since the beginning of the pandemic in March, and it was a great choice (many friends recommended). The building itself is historic and interesting, lots of touches reflecting its 200+ years, with some clever outdoor seating setups. Nice cocktail...and local wine choices and innovative beginner/entree/hearth offerings. 'Street corn' was a spicy fire roasted choice, tomato gazpacho was fresh and garlicy. Skirt steak was surprisingly tender with a nice accompaniment of rice, corn and peppers (generous portions too. Rockfish was firm and flavorful, though could have used a bit more spice. Desserts (indulgences) were particularly good; almond&cherry cake was light with nice accompaniment of pistachio ice cream, the chocolate chip cookie was HUGE and decadent. We will visit again!More

Easily our favorite place around, simply remarkable food. If you want to try destination food before they're so renowned that you can't get in, go here. Also have an excellent bar, so make sure you give that a try.

Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends. The main course was delicious, we had scallops and the pork pot pie. The puff pastry was a great addition to the pot pie! We also shared some sides. The Brussels sprouts were yummy! The bread with Laredo was...really interesting, the loaf was grilled and accompanied by Laredo with a delicious smoke flavor. The ambiance is great, food great, service good. I would definitely go back!More
