Wonderful Food, Wonderful Atmosphere, Wonderful Service!

From a girls night out to a romantic "date night", 131 Main is a great place to go. We have eaten here on several occasions and have always been pleased. It is above average in every way and while it can be a bit pricey, there are always options on the menu if you are on a budget. I like... read more

Went to 131 Main for a quick diner, ordered devilled eggs and Ahi tuna salade with a good glass of Chardoney. The salade was good with perfectly grilled tuna steak! If you want to enjoy a diner in a nice ambiance then I can reccommend this place to you. Nice and friendly waiters

This is a nice restaurant to go to for a special occasion. We were celebrating an accomplishment for our daughter so it was the perfect atmosphere. The service was very good and attentive. My husband had the prime rib, our daughter the salmon and I ordered the fish tacos. My husband ordered the prime rib($28), and the salmon ($23)is my... More

The food and service is always fantastic! It is one of my favorite restaurants to go for a nice dinner or just a drink and appetizer on the patio! It gets to be a little hard to get into on the weekends but worth the wait. I always get either the shrimp and grits or the salmon. They have never... More

Food is well prepared, always good and the service is top flight, better than you find in a restaurant of this kind. It never disappoints. Do wish the menu would change a little more frequently as we dine there a lot & would enjoy a few new items.

When the wife and I get a night away from the kids, this is our go to spot. Steaks are awesome, ribs are fantastic. Get the mashed potatoes LOADED and you will not be disappointed. Atmosphere is a little busy, but you can hear each other talk no problem. The menu is small, but the food is always good. My... More

the food is consistently good, but not great in my opinion. It is a nice cozy restaurant, with cheery professional staff.

For consistently great food and excellent service try 131 Main in Cornelius. Every time I've visited, I've had an excellent meal with attentive wait staff. I recommend you try this restaurant!

Maybe the last reviewer caused the restaurant to improve. Two out of three of us just had the Prime Rib and it was terrific!! I will say that the fries are outstanding, which is a better side than the red smashed potatoes. Another diner in our group had the crab eggs benedict and that also got rave reviews. Well done....

Although our meals were excellent, $60 for a Sunday lunch (before tip) is too much! I've eaten at 131 Main before and don't remember it being so pricey.
