We have been to the one in Asheville before and wanted to try this one. We did so during Charlotte restaurant week. The special menu had something for each of us and all of it was outstanding. The trout was flavorful and the crab cakes were delicious. Great service--never had to wait for anything as the server was very attentive... More

It's hard to find a place that husband and I can both agree on for a great meal. 131 never dissapoints. The service is always great and the food just as amazing. If you love smoked salmon, their appetizer is the absolute best!

This is my go-to place for business dinners if there are no specific culinary requests. The service is always great, the bar tenders are very experienced, and the atmosphere is pleasant. The two must haves for appetizers are the Cast iron cornbread and the Smoked Salmon. The cornbread is unique even for southern born and bred folk but be mindful... More

Went to this location for the first time. Previously ate at the Dillworth location which is now closed, probably a good thing as they were mediocre! What a surprise, the menu was varied with great selections. Grilled Artichokes were fantastic! Rainbow Trout and Ribs were fantastic as well! Grits as a side, fluffy and tasty. If you order Banana Cream... More

Outstanding Sunday night special - Tenderloin Oscar, Five stars! The grand-children were tired and hungry. But when the strawberry shortcake arrived, they really came back to life.

I had dinner at the bar as I was traveling solo for business. Everyone was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice. It would be a great place for a nice business dinner or a couples night out. I had the chicken and asparagus and it was delicious! I will return on my next trip... More

We went to 131 Main because it was rated #1 by Trip Advisor. They were point on!! The bar maid was friendly and made super martinis. The atmosphere was really nice. We had a great dinner and will go back there again.

Especially tasty well prepared food and very good, knowledgable service. Their freezer is only used for ice cream and plates - everything is made in house and fresh. Don't miss their banana cream pie.

Started with a couple cocktails at the bar, and only waited about 10 minutes without a reservation on a busy Thursday night. Our server, Justin, was excellent. We started with the double dip appetizer which was pretty good. My date had the shrimp and grits( her favorite), while I had the ribeye special (with mashed red potatoes and a crab... More
