Great food and service

Fast friendly service. Nice wine by the glass and bottle list. Rib Eye Steak and Cedar Plank Salmon were excellent. Good Caeser Salad. Did not serve bread with meal a minus. You could buy Corn Bread. Wonderful Key Lime Pie. A little pricey.

Went here for dinner on a Monday night and the place was full. You walk in and immediately see the kitchen to the right where they are grilling; grilled meat smells wonderful! They were participating in Restaurant Week which includes three courses for $35. I started with the Caesar Salad and it was a bit overdressed for my taste but... More

I recently went here to eat and I've been here a few times before. The food is excellent and the service was too. It's a very nice classy environment. I highly recommend this place. The banana cream pie is to die for!

We know we can come here for consistently good food, at a good price, in a comfortable place. And on the menu we are pleased with some real satisfying standouts. The trout is a winner in our book, and we get it each time we go. We've also had great luck with the ahi tuna, never chewy or grainy, with... More

This place was our first date 8 years ago and it's still going strong. Reliable good food, attentive service and always delicious. The deviled eggs are fantastic, the trout is my favorite but I recently had the lamb and I'm switching over! We frequently order their banana cream pie to go and it's amazing. Chunks of chocolate with fresh bananas,... More

My wife and I have dined at 131 Mail dozens of times. It is consistently very good. During the last 2 years we always order the trout. The ribs, burgers, and other entrees are really good but no other restaurant does trout as well as 131. She gets the kale salad and i go for the slaw. Add a bring... More

Food & service are just amazing here. We went with a group of 8 (make sure you have a reservation) and each single dish was perfect. We had salmon, rips, salad,... everything was cooked so well. Even the dessert (key lime pie - huge!) was impressive. Service was also extraordinary. The lady not only new the lengthy special from top... More

I had heard good things about this restaurant... so I had to check it out. I was not disappointed in the fare. I had the prime rib burger and it was delicious... and everything around me also looked just as tasty. The staff was friendly and attentive, would definitely recommend!

A friend who moved to Charlotte a couple of years ago introduced us to 131 Main on a recent weekend trip to NC. It's become one of her favorites, and we could see why. The food was quite tasty and the service was friendly but not intrusive. We enjoyed skillet cornbread, baked potato soup (yummy!), and salmon on a plank... More
