I ordered crab cakes here--about the least expensive entree on the menu ($25.) My salad was extra. No bread was brought to our table; no lemon in the water. My crab cakes were served with large asparagus spears (no rice or potato), and since I asked for no added salt, they were served without any sauce at all! I had... More

My first visit to 131 Main, it was a birthday invitation by friends, and I liked it. The Thai salad with beef tenderloin tips was very nice.we shared a Key Lime pie which was creamy!

I had not been to this restaurant in awhile and in the past had ordered the crabcake salad and remember it to be very yummy. When we returned this past week, I ordered it again and it is still the best crabcake salad I've ever had. The crabcake is made mostly of lump crab with not a lot of filler,... More

My husband and I are foodies and wanted to celebrate our 22nd anniversary with a delicious meal coupled with good service. Nathan, our server, and the chefs at 131 Main exceeded our expectations. Nathan was friendly and provided menu suggestions and general information about the area as we relocated here a few weeks ago. I love their approach to holding... More

The greeters at front door spend more time chatting with each other than seating patrons. Wait staff is very professional. Quality of food is suspect, we ordered seafood that was overly seasoned perhaps to hide other flaws. The menu says hand cut potatoes which in reality are string fries. Overall this was an unpleasant experience and since there are soo... More

Upon recommendation we decided to celebrate our anniversary at 131 Main for lunch. From start to finish everything was excellent. We had white cheddar grits for appetizers, split the NC grilled trout with kale and brownie with ice cream for dessert with hot coffee. Our server Joey was great and the food was phenomenon. We asked Joey to call the... More

Local relatives took us to this spot and it was so good that we come back two nights later. Sat outside both nights in lovely weather (September). First night had a swordfish special that was amazingly fresh and light and had the cast-iron skillet cornbread as a side dish...divine. Second visit we had the grilled artichoke appetizer that was second... More

This is our Thursday night spot and it never disappoints. I always have the grilled salmon (not on the menu) and my wife loves the marinated ribeye. We were starving and began with the double dip appetizer with a few cocktails. Great food and wonderful service that's always consistent. Keep up the good work 131!

My family just finished dinner here, and the best word I can use to describe the food is SALTY. The mushroom and artichoke soup was salty, the scallops were inedible due to salt, the grits were clumpy. My husband had the crab cakes which were better but the sauce was salty. I think the cheeseburger my kids ate was way... More
