My husband and I were here for our anniversary dinner. I had the crab cakes, he had the ribs. Both were awesome. My kale salad was good as is but cranberries would have made it great. The key lime pie was devine, makes my mouth water and my mind scream take out 10 days later. Good atmosphere, nice efficient service,... More

My sister and I had dinner before a concert. I can only say, the service was excellent...the wait staff check on all the tables, not just theirs, so you are never looking for a server to fill your glass or take your plates. They all do it for each other. Very effecient and they are all knowledgeable and personable. I... More

We went to 131 Main for dinner and were blown away with the flavor! We had the artichoke appetizer-amazingly delicious! I had the mahi mahi special and my husband had the prime rib special with a crab cake. Both were full of flavor and perfectly cooked. Both of us got the loaded mashed potatoes for our side-again...delicious! We also ordered... More

The herb chicken was delicious though barely warm (my fault for not returning it to the kitchen), my husbands steak was good but not as good as remembered in the past. Great service though and we will returb

We called ahead and had a table ready for us when we got there. Service was good. We loved the food. Crab cakes and asparagus were perfect. Lots of crab meat and the crust of the crab cakes was so crisp. The asparagus has a great wood fire taste. Prime Rib and mashed potatoes were awesome. The restaurant smelled delicious,... More

One of my favorite places while visiting my brother. Since I don't go often I always go for my favorite: the roasted chicken entree that comes with...fries! Yup, so basic but so good. My brother had the wolf fish special (I guess a lot of people rave about it but, I didn't care for it) and my mom the scallops... More

We went out with some friends and really enjoyed the meal and of course the desert. The servers were friendly as well.

Food is good and service is too. Why only serve mash potatoes with 30-40 dollar entree? Everything else is a la carte. If you want bread you can pay $8 for cornbread. In addition to mash potatoes with my filet mignon there should have been a green vegetable, maybe broccoli or asparagus. Felt taken advantage of by greedy ownership.

Stopped here upon recommendation of front desk at Hampton Inn (also excellent!). We had the smoked salmon appetizer, shared a crab cake salad and had the shrimp and grits for dinner. DELICIOUS!! Took peanut butter pie and banana cream pie back to the room. They were AWESOME!! Wanted to lick the boxes they came in. Will certainly come back here... More
