We have been to the South and Cornelius Restuarants. They are silghly differnt but the Service and food are very good. Whether you are there for drinks and appetizers or sitdown meal all is good and worth a wait.

I visit 131 Main often and am never disappointed. From the "boat to table" fish to the best ribs I've had, the food is always consistent. And speaking of consistency..their service is always spot on...always. No freezer means everything is fresh...highly recommend

I have enjoyed 131 Main for years! The atmosphere is great, staff exceptionally trained and the food always fantastic. The prices are reasonable, as portions are generous. The roast beef sandwich is the best I have EVER had, as well as the many salads. Can't...More
