I'd just moved here when I 1st visited this fabulous restaurant. I tried the crab cakes. Some of the best I've ever had. The ambiance is welcoming. The service was great. Pricey but worth the money.

I have eaten at 131 dozens of times. Lunch or Dinner, starving or just out for a cocktail & snacks, this place is consistently excellent. Service is spot on, and their food is excellent. Many of their foods are sourced locally, and the chef at this location rocks. The bartenders are savvy and the staff is always gracious. The setting... More

Upon entering, you are greeted by the smell of their wood fired grill, which in it's own right is enjoyable. After visiting about three weeks ago for the first time, we returned again last week. I've had both the trout and pork chop and both were delicious. I'd also recommend the Main side salad with blue cheese vinaigrette.

We have eaten here about a dozen times since they opened and every time the food and service are superb. The last time was for our anniversary dinner. The waitstaff is topnotch. We dined on artichoke appetizer ( the best I ever had), fresh trout and shrimp and grits. All were amazing. Lovely atmosphere and all for a reasonable price... More

Food was great quality, service was ok, had to wait for my glass to be filled on a couple of occasions. Atmosphere was classy and comfortable. Cost was relatively high when compared to other restaurants of the same caliber. Total experience was great for a romantic evening out, not too noisy or too quiet, staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend... More

4 ladies for dinner. Diverse menu. We were all hungry. I ordered the fish tacos that were supposed to be made from the Fish of the Day, Mahi. They arrived blackened. I asked them to be prepared again without the unadvertised blackening used. The manager stepped in and personally took charge of the situation. I was hopeful. The manager had... More
