Made day of reservations for 2, so only 4ish and 8:45 pm and later tables were available. Service and food was excellent! Very busy so it was a little loud, but overall an outstanding experience.

131 Main is great place, with a balanced menu. Took the chance to make a choice from the Restaurant Week Menu. Started with a soup, and afterwards the Ahi Tuna. As dessert, have chosen for the Key Lime pie ... Portions were more than enough. Good service, will come back.

This was our third time at 131 Main, Cornelius. We brought my in-laws, who were visiting. We shared the smoked salmon appetizer, and chose a nice red wine. My husband and I both had the prime rib, and my in laws both tried the crab cakes. Everything was great, including the service. We will definitely return.

Great food. Was here on my lunch break. I had the turkey sandwich and I have to say it was one of the best ones I've had. Quick service too.

We come here regularly and the one reason we go back is because they are consistently good. They have a wonderful Hawaiin steak, porkchops, and great sea bass/fish specials. I also like to go there to meet my girlfriends for happy hour. Tuesday's they have half priced bottle of wines and a great happy hour special from their bar food/appetizer... More

This was suggested by Bill Downey of Donna Downey studios. Started with the smoked salmon appetizer which was fabulous. It is large enough to be a meal by itself. The prime rib sandwich was perfect. The metropolis salad had large fresh chunks of avocados and feta cheese along with pulled chicken. All dressings and sauces are house made.

Went with another couple. Atmosphere warm and inviting; not to loud for table conversation. Menu had good variety at less than expensive pricing. Service was good; although the bill had a bottle of wine that was a mistake. I plan on going back.
