Great food, good service

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

We were in Charlotte unexpectedly - and without a car - and found this restaurant within walking distance of our accommodations. We ate on the early side and the restaurant was mostly empty though by the time we left (about 6:30 p.m.) both the bar and tables were hopping). Our food was delicious (though the trout was a touch over... More

The restaurant was full of chatty people on this Tuesday evening which was 1/2 priced wine bottle night. You can also bring your own wine. Service was accommodating to our requests. They specialize in steak but I had a salad with grilled chicken which was well prepared.

not cheap, but worth the price. we each had entree lunch salads. i had the seared tuna and my wife had the special pulled chicken over romaine. both were excellent. at about $18 each, not a place for a quick cheap lunch, but if you want something really good, it is worth the splurge.

We always go there to catch up after work. The food is great, and we all have our favorite margarita (mine is apple). A little pricey so we can only go every other month but worth every penny. Everything is great but my favorite is the crab cakes.

After our third visit to this beautiful restaurant in Charlotte, I almost feel that it's necessary to post a review and let people know... THIS IS THE SPOT... On all three visits we have almost made it about 30 percent of the way through the menu and will be returning until we try everything on it. Our last visit was... More
