I am giving them 3 solid stars, and here's why. Appetizers, not very appetizing. Strange items ; Deviled eggs and Cornbread. Hmmm , we chose the Deviled eggs and Double Dip.

131 Main has been a favorite of ours for many years but we had never eaten on the patio or lounged by the fire pit. So, when an unusually warm Saturday night presented itself, we found ourselves seated at the last patio table available and settled in for a glass of wine and deviled egg appetizers. I usually enjoy the... More

what would you pay for a fantastic burger? Well the cost here is worth every penny. I never... repeat NEVER eat burgers out of my home - except here!

We ate at 131 main on a Friday night during queen's feast restaurant week. Had fantastic service by a team of friendly, well-trained servers, and food was fantastic and service was quick on such a busy night.

I go there every Sunday for brunch. They offer a mushroom and artichoke soup that is to die for. Then you have a choice of crab Benedict or steak Benedict that comes with grits and roasted asparagus spears. I have never had grits that taste so good. This is really a unique eating experience..

We went on a Monday evening and had a Filet Mignon and a local fish specialty. It was both busy and reasonably quiet. The wait staff was attentive without making anyone feel rushed. The fish was excellent and the steak properly cooked, if slightly charred - but some may like that method.

Our first time with a family that is so special to us in 9 years. 3 couples and a college age son and it also happened to be the son's birthday. The server was fantastic, suggested entrees and preparations based on our tastes, food allergies. Great food for all.

Thank Carl R
