Consistent

131 Main has a great atmosphere and a extremely attentive staff. Beyond that, I have to say that the food is just above average, but consistent. Wine list is confusing, if you do not realize that less expensive selections and by the glass wines are on the menu, instead of on the wine list. From... read more

My wife and I have dined at this restaurant consistently almost every week for a long time and it has consistently been our favorite place to go. However, the last couple of times we could not have been any more disappointed. The food used to be exceptionally consistent and excellent, however, not the case anymore. In fact, last night we...

My wife and I have dined at 131 Main in blakeney over 100 times in the last 8 years and were devoted raving fan but things have gone from great to just OK in the last year. Staff turnover has increased noticeably, intrusive management oversight seems to have taken the fun out of the atmosphere. Food which was always very... More

My wife and I ate here for our 14th anniversary. While it was a random Tuesday night the place was jam packed so you may want to make reservations since it is so popular. My wife and I loved everything we ordered. The 'double dip' appetizer was great, their crab cakes and pork chops were unbelievable and their key lime... More

Recently ate here by myself on a sunday evening. Sat at the bar. Very lively yet cozy place. I love the fire pit outside as well. I had the Grilled Artichoke & the North Carolina trout. Excellent, and I will return with friends next time.

The food and service at 131 Main are very good! However, it is very expensive! Parking is also challenging near the restaurant!

Ordered the dip appetizer with tortilla chips- it was delicious. Also ordered veggie burger with quinoa salad. Delicious as well, veggie burger homemade and lots... More

We've been going to 131 Main in Cornelius since it opened. The food has always been fresh and great. Everything on the menu is over the top good. Seafood, veggies, ribs, chicken, soups and salads are outstanding. Service has always been good too. Usually at least two wait people working at your table to make sure your water glass is... More
