The chef of Market on Main, whose sense of taste was altered during a bout of cancer in 2022, has been named the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association’s Chef of the Year. 


The atmosphere here is amazing. I came with some of my friends from Paris and they were very impressed with the food. The staff is extremely accommodating, the managers Sydney and Jefferson are world class. I always have a great time when I come here. This is the only restaurant I’ve ever seen with insulated/ heated outdoor bubbles so you can enjoy the vibe and music all while being warm during the winter. Market on Main is one of the best places to have a group event or large dinner but is also perfect for dates or small groups of friends.

Market on Main is absolutely fantastic! The food was amazing, the atmosphere was amazing, and the service was amazing. I ordered the pasta bolognese, and it was delicious! The cheese on the top was fresh and flavorful. We sat inside as it was pretty chilly that night, but the outdoor patio is incredible as well. We enjoyed listening to live music and watching football while eating. They had an excellent craft beer selection and great choice of wine. I only have good things to say and will definitely be coming back soon!

Market on Main is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbia! I had never been for brunch before, but I had a great experience. We got the pastry board to start and it was delicious! I ordered the everything bagel sandwich and it was very tasty, but a little messy. It came with a side of truffle fries which are always my go to when I visit. Overall, the service and food was great. I highly recommend!
