“Reputation is reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Food and service are excellent and 131 always has a lively crowd and atmosphere. I live at one of the top residential Country clubs around Charlotte and often to choose to entertain for lunch or dinner at 131 Main between Cornelius and Huntersville.

“Always Excellent. A true joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We make a stop at 131 Main a regular part of visiting our son at Davidson. This is restaurant consistently turns out great meat and fish dishes. The best $5 gazpacho in America is served here -- a little spicy and big enough for two to enjoy. The key lime pie from our last visit had the best crush ever. Whether you go steak, hamburger or fish -- consider having the mashed potatoes with your meal: the best potatoes anywhere.

Whether you are having a family meal or a date night out, the atmosphere is superb, the service always good and the food terrific.

“One of our favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Creative cuisine, always satisfying. A bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. Just note that it's a busy place so be prepared to wait. Also excellent at lunch time.

“Everything is Fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

No frozen cooked food here, only fresh food - excellently prepared and served. Good wine list and a comfortable dining area make this one of our favorite choices for a relaxing dinner.
