Upon recommendation we decided to celebrate our anniversary at 131 Main for lunch. From start to finish everything was excellent. We had white cheddar grits for appetizers, split the NC grilled trout with kale and brownie with ice cream for dessert with hot coffee. Our server Joey was great and the food was phenomenon. We asked Joey to call the... More

Local relatives took us to this spot and it was so good that we come back two nights later. Sat outside both nights in lovely weather (September). First night had a swordfish special that was amazingly fresh and light and had the cast-iron skillet cornbread as a side dish...divine. Second visit we had the grilled artichoke appetizer that was second... More

This is our Thursday night spot and it never disappoints. I always have the grilled salmon (not on the menu) and my wife loves the marinated ribeye. We were starving and began with the double dip appetizer with a few cocktails. Great food and wonderful service that's always consistent. Keep up the good work 131!

My family just finished dinner here, and the best word I can use to describe the food is SALTY. The mushroom and artichoke soup was salty, the scallops were inedible due to salt, the grits were clumpy. My husband had the crab cakes which were better but the sauce was salty. I think the cheeseburger my kids ate was way... More

Went with my wife on Sat night. Reservations were available if you called in to ( no online available). The service was good but the menu was limited when compared to other restaurants in the area. The food was good but not exciting. They have a full bar and the drinks are healthy. Very average for the area.

This is a nice restaurant with an intimate setting as long as you are away from the bar area on a busy night. The food is always fresh. The grilled artichoke is excellent, and they always have Prime Rib which never disappoints. On the lighter side the AHI Tuna Salad is Excellent they cook the Tuna anyway you like, but... More

I had the chicken and corn my friend she had filet mignon and the mashed potatoes all of this was good and had good service clean place. Clean restrooms. Price a little high but it is a fancy restaurant probably won't go there every week.

We had a special event for my wife and I and had not eaten dinner here for quite a while. The last time we had dinner with friends the experience was so-so. However, my wife had lunch with friends recently and really liked the crab cake salad. So we booked an early Saturday dinner. The wine and drink order went... More

So I just love the grilled artichoke when it's available. It was during this visit to my delight! I ordered the fresh cut salmon and it was small and dry. My friend ordered the rainbow trout and said it was delicious. Luckily I was full from the artichokes so the salmon wasn’t that big of a deal except for the... More

It's hard to find a decent homemade veggie burger around town... most places simply serve a gardenburger or boca. But the beet burger (veggie burger) at 131 is delicious and filling. Order a side of kale salad and it's veggie heaven.
