Saturday night out

Food was great and service was wonderful! We'll be back.a couple of us had the prime rib which of course is one of their speciality so. As always it was superb. And the salmon was one of the dishes that was chosen.

Been there a few times and never disappointed. Food is excellent, well prepared and presented. Service meticulous! Great desserts too. I don't often have dessert when I go out to dinner, but their Key Lime Pie is THE BEST!

131 Main is always busy. That's because the food and service are both excellent. The good news is they take reservations. The wait staff all look sharp in their uniforms and they are at the patrons' service throughout the meal. If you want a great experience dining out, I would happily recommend 131 Main.

This is the place I chose to have a birthday dinner. It was an excellent choice! The food tasted great! The service was awesome! It would be a great place for a date or a nice family dinner. It's definitely a place you need to check out around the area!

Went to 131 Main the other night for dinner. First time in a couple of years. The food continues to be very good to excellent in quality and presentation (I had an excellent grilled swordfish done perfectly and my wife had filet medallions), but it's crowded, noisy and hectic--almost like a fast-food atmosphere. It was also on the pricy side.... More

We went to 131 Main for the first time after living in the area for 5 years. We went on Good Friday so we ate fish. The meal was good, the service was excellent and they even had a table when we were late! It was a little noisy for my taste and usually when I go out to eat... More

Had the NY strip and my wife had the pork chop, nephew had the prime rib. All cooked to perfection and excellent in taste and presentation. Service as one would expect was at par for 131 Main. Very nice evening out.

We ate here last year while visiting family in the area and I couldn't wait to go back. The food at 131 Main is so fresh, they don't even have a freezer. Everything is delicious; you can't make a bad choice. Servers aim to please and are friendly and welcoming! We will be back during our next visit!

Very nice but noisy and expensive. The Lunch menu is way too expensive to eat frequently. Their lunch specials are $18.00 The food is very good though. The service is great.

Whenever we are craving a great, relaxing meal, we hit 131 Main. The ambiance is lovely inside with comfy tables outside as well. Their house drinks are a great way to start off any meal. The kale salad is fabulous! and for 3 dollars, you have to try it. We've never been disappointed with any meal at this restaurant. Generally... More
