This used to be one of our favorite places to dine. The atmosphere was awesome, dimly lit, seating allows for noise level to be diminished, food is good (a little over priced I think). However, they have taken some of the best entrees off their menu!!! We haven't been back since.

The worst dining experience I have ever had. There was so much smoke from the grill we could not enjoy our dinner. They should have closed the resturant until the problem was resolved.

The only reason in giving a 4 star review instead of a 5 star review is the service could have been better. We were seated quickly, but then it took over 20 mins for our server to come take our order. We placed the menus at the end of the table to clearly let the servers passing by that we... More

Our first time here and we enjoyed our lunch. The atmosphere is cozy and warm, and the food was tasty. It's a little over-priced, as a jumbo hot dog is $12 and my club sandwich was also $12. Didn't have dessert this time. Even with the prices, we'd definitely come back for lunch or dinner.

Our first time here and we will be back. Great service and good food so what's not to like. I had the Salmon which was done perfectly and my wife had a chicken dish. She told me it was delicious as was mine. Had banana cream pie for desert which we shared. It was very good as well. They have... More

131 Main is the place to go with family or friends for a varied menu of well-prepared food, with good service and a pleasant atmosphere. For lunch, the delicious club sandwich is large enough to share, with crispy fries on the side. Their Thai steak salad is deliciously seasoned, and definitely ample for an entree. There are numerous selections for... More

This is a lovely restaurant with great service. We had the Double Dip Appetizer, ribeye steak, and crab cake salad. The steak was pronounced "pretty good", while the crab cake on the salad was excellent. The P&G slaw is also delicious - nice, fresh, and crunchy. Nice atmosphere for an evening out.

This is a very popular restaurant, It is a suburban outpost of it's main restaurant which is in Charlotte. The food choices are large and the bar is inviting. Service is very good and, overall, this is a very good dining experience. I very much like their Filet Mignon. You probably can't go wrong with this restaurant. Make reservations for... More
