Recently visited 131 Main in Cornelius with some guests from Davidson. We booked an early reservation and were seated upon our arrival. Caisey introduced herself as our server and quickly brought us waters all around. First we looked over the wine and beer list. The wines are grouped by cost per glass and bottle, a nice approach, with a very... More

My wife and I have been to 131 Main a few times, and enjoyed our meals. Last night we ordered the cedar plank salmon and the pan seared scallops. The salmon was very tasty - buttery and flavorful; the wild rice with cumin, raisins and nuts was a nice complement. Unfortunately, my scallop plate came out cool at best, and... More

Great service. Great managers. Great food. My wife and I eat here 2-3 times per week. The food is fresh. No processed food here. The people are wonderful and the wait staff is expected to be professional. Great place all around

I have had trout prepared in many ways, but the one served by this restaurant--with herb aioli and a kale salad--was particularly memorable. It went quite well with the Spyder Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The appetizer is also worth mentioning; Cast Iron Cornbread was a new and pleasant experience for me. Service was efficient and cheerful.

A "lake-casual" restaurant with something for everyone. Not white table cloths, but I'd consider the restaurant upscale. Contemporary waiters in black are very friendly and attentive. Menu is not huge but includes a nice selection of seafood and meats. There's a good selection of appetizers and dinner-size salads, including the most delicious perfectly grilled artichokes. The restaurant is in a... More
