My husband and I are foodies and wanted to celebrate our 22nd anniversary with a delicious meal coupled with good service. Nathan, our server, and the chefs at 131 Main exceeded our expectations. Nathan was friendly and provided menu suggestions and general information about the area as we relocated here a few weeks ago. I love their approach to holding... More

Took customers out for dinner. Like many of the New American style restaurants, they have the requesite filet, fish, chicken and pasta dishes. not a large menu, but good solid choices that don't push any boundaries. Seating can be awkward - all booths. Wine list was light, but not bad. Overall, a 3/5.

The greeters at front door spend more time chatting with each other than seating patrons. Wait staff is very professional. Quality of food is suspect, we ordered seafood that was overly seasoned perhaps to hide other flaws. The menu says hand cut potatoes which in reality are string fries. Overall this was an unpleasant experience and since there are soo... More

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.
