Under the visionary guidance of Josh Willoughby, Market on Main stands as the epicurean epicenter within the realm of culinary delight, exquisite libations, and unparalleled entertainment. Nestled in the heart of Soda City, this culinary haven invites guests to embark on a gastronomic journey coupled with immersive experiences, making it the ultimate rendezvous spot.

At the core of MoM’s charm is its enticing weekly specials. Every Tuesday, an irresistible treat awaits with half-price deals on their iconic MoM burgers, setting the tone for an evening abuzz with stimulating trivia on their expansive 23-foot outdoor Jumbotron TV. Midweek revelry takes flight on Wednesdays with a symphony of half-priced wine glasses coupled with the chance for spirited karaoke performances on its large outdoor stage on Main Street. Thursdays the ambiance gets even more enchanting as MoM treats guests to half-price lobster rolls and a series of rotating events from cocktail classes to candle-making to fun events for the dogs. Top artists from all over the region grace the stage Friday through Sunday for live entertainment beneath the gleaming lights of the colossal outdoor Jumbotron TV — adapted for a Vegas-style quad-screen experience, ideal for watching multiple sports matches simultaneously, or a full-screen spectacle for Gamecock football enthusiasts.

MoM redefines the outdoor dining experience with a newly introduced heated all-glass sunroom and exclusive private heated igloos, offering guests an all-season dining affair. Their culinary prowess shines through their tantalizing truffle fries, delectable pastas, succulent steaks, and a rotation of daily specials curated by the esteemed SCRLA Chef of the Year, Howard Stephens.

Elevating the experience is the world-class hospitality orchestrated by the adept guidance of General Manager Sydney Lopez, ensuring each visitor relishes not only the culinary marvels but an ambiance steeped in warmth and sophistication. Market on Main isn’t just a restaurant; it’s an odyssey of taste, entertainment, and hospitality — an experience that lingers in the memory long after the last bite!
