A small group of us (six) had post work drinks and dinner, ordering a variety of cocktails, entrees, sides and wine. The rainbow trout, ahi tuna dinner salad, and prime rib got rave reviews across the board, the cocktails were simply delicious and the wine selection was quite good. The appetizer (Double Dip) was the only part of the meal... More

I'm a fan of publix and Ritz Carlton and now 131 Main. The first two understand guest relations and now I willingly add 131 Main to the list! They just simply know how to treat people the right way. With their great food, this hits the top of my list for restaurants!

131 Main was recommended by the nearby Morehead Inn where we're spending the night -- it was great! The grilled artichokes were amazing. My prime rib was one of the best I've had; it was cooked perfectly and not fatty (and I rarely order red meat). My husband had the cobb salad. My pear cocktail was excellent. Definitely recommend and... More

My wife and I always take a 'nice' bottle of red wine with us - the restaurant will open it for free. We then share the cedar plank Salmon; they split it and give us two separate plates with plenty of food. We can enjoy a great meal with a great wine in a great place. This restaurant is very...

My family and I go here often and we have always had incredible service and love the food. The crab cakes are one of our favorites, along with the Thai Steak Salad. Great option to dine outdoors near the firepit, also. The bar always had a large crowd and overall is a neighborhood gem.

On Sep 25, 2014 we treated the friend we were visiting to dinner here at his recommendation. Food was very good. Our server, Molly, was excellent. I had the fish tacos, which were slightly spicy. I don't like spicy food, but this was acceptable. However, there were three huge tacos with rice and beans. I expected two tacos.The menu did... More

My wife and I stopped by for dinner based on the trip-advisor reviews. The steaks were OK but not anything special, but the Grilled Artichoke appetizer was one of the best appetizers ever. We would go back just for that. The banana cream pie was pretty spectacular, too.

Visiting friends in Charlotte and they suggested we go to one of their favorite places, 131 Main. No reservations taken but of you do a "call ahead" it will help ensure a more timely seating. The food is good. Service is attentive even in a large crowd. Be prepared...it will be quite loud in any part of the restaurant because... More

Loud busy and happening kinda place. We called ahead which really didn't do any good. We were told a 30 minute wait but only got seated after 75 minutes because we complained. I have to say that the manager did a great job of customer recovery and bought us dessert. My suggestion is to have a reservation and expect a... More
