I've been here several times because a friend lives nearby. I used to go to the location in Dilworth before it closed and loved it. This location is sooooo dark. And sooooo noisy, especially for a restaurant that is a bit pricy (the wine, anyway). You have to talk loudly to be heard so conversation is difficult. The wait staff... More

I've never had a bad meal here. The shrimp and grits were especially good. Good service as well. Very nice spot for a romantic night out or dinner with friends.

Always great food and service at 131 Main in Cornelius, North Carolina. The ribs, trout, prime french dip sandwich, baked artichoke appetizer, and 131 maniac cocktail all excellent. Service excellent. Recommend.

Great food! Good atmosphere. Usually busy. Nice outdoor seating by a fire pit. The hamburgers, various fish and ribs are very good. One of our favorite places!

My husband took me there for our anniversary this past New Year's Eve. Waitress was awesome as was the cornbread. I ordered a margharita and it was horrible so I switched to vanilla vodka and diet coke - diet coke was flat. I ordered the rainbow trout and it was good but the french fries weren't cooked. My husband got... More

One of our favorites but for some reason, we have not been here lately so decided to visit it for Sunday Brunch last Sunday. Church ended at 10:30 and by the time we got everything together and got in the car and drove over, it was 10:50. They don't open till 11:00 so I got another couple of minutes to... More

I have only been able to visit 131 Main three or four times since moving to Charlotte, but it is my go-to restaurant for special events...most recently my birthday dinner. They are friendly, yet professional and we never want for anything during our meal. The cornbread skillet is a must-have, to kick off your meal. The menu has many great... More

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
