Our Go-to restaurant in Charlotte

Whenever we can't make up our minds, we go to 131 main. NEVER a disappointment. Great food, service, drink, and atmosphere. We hit the one on Huntersville.

Contemporary American with nice decor and great food. Plenty of healthy options on the menu for us who need to watch our waistline. I had the trout with quinoa. The fish perfectly served, the quinoa tastefully done. My friends Ahi Tuna salad was great as well. Pork Chops, steaks can be found on the menu as well.

Went with friends to catch up. Very nice decor . Rather noisy but were seated at a back table that worked. Had thai steak salad that was good. other party members had salads and were very satisfied.

Excellent menu. My husband ordered a filet with grilled shrimp, and he was very pleased. I had two Maryland crab cakes that were delicious. As you enter the restaurant, the kitchen is open, and you are immediately seduced by delectable aromas. You can stand and watch the chefs if you walk in without a reservation. Tiffany was our server, and... More

I was taken out for a business dinner here. They gave us a nice large table for our meeting and the sound levels were such that we could have a great discussion without having to shout ! The food was very good, I had the fresh fish special and it was delicious. The staff was very attentive and responsive to... More

This place is on the top of my list for fresh and delicious dinners. I had a large salad with rasberry dressing and grilled slamon on top and it was one of the best salads I've ever had. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is friendly and efficient. Oh and try a dirty martini it is super tasty!!

We did one "dinner for two" plus 2 other entrees. This included wine, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. The appetizer was more than enough for all four of... More

My wife and I had dinner here last weekend. It was an 1 hour 30 minute wait for a table but that is kind of par for the course in this area on a Saturday night - no reservation. The bar is nice and the bartenders and servers are polite and on top of it. Decent selection of craft beer... More
