Great food but very over prices. The prices keep going up year after year. We don't go anymore. It's always cold, loud, and dark inside and the wait staff is great but too great because they are always at your table.
Great food but not one of the best places to go around here anymore.

Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere! Shrimp and grits are my all-time favorite but can't go wrong with anything you order.

Just about everything on the menu is excellent. Very good atmosphere, service is excellent, drinks ares superb. Outside seating with a fire pit as well.
Do not get the slow roasted chicken. As you can imagine, you can't you cannot slow roast a chicken fresh for each meal. It is refrigerated and re-heated. Twice I have recieved it cold in the middle. They went overboard to take care of me both times though.

Driving from FL back to OH ... we stopped for the night, and 131 Main was recommended by the desk clerk at the Hampton Inn. We went.

Great place ... filled with the civilization and ambiance that had been lacking in the car throughout the day. The food was very good, starting with "Double Dip" appetizer, followed by blackened steak special and some fine House red wine.

While it was all "a little too much" for our systems that night after driving ... we'd do it again. Great service, by the way.

We always enjoy it here. The double dip is a nice appetizer featuring guacamole and pimento cheese. It is almost a meal. The planked salmon is scrumptious, moist and flavorful. The Cajun pasta is perfectly spiced and with shrimp is phenomenal, the veggie burger is one of the best around and the sides are creative and flavorful. Don't pass up dessert, either!
