Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent family dinner for 4 people. Food excellent. Service great. Prices reasonable. Plan to return soon."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Disappointed again. Food is fine. Really want to like this neighborhood restaurant. Fish taco shells greasy, not crisp. Shrimp and grits weird- sauce more like that orange queso you get on nachos at a basketball game. Don't understand the multiple waiter system. Everything just a little off-kilter at this price point. Nolen Kitchen on Selwyn much better quality. On the upside, 1/2 price bottles of wine on Tuesdays is a plus."

  • "I brought my mom here for her birthday. We had reservations and was taken directly to our table upon arrival. The waiter was a little slow getting to our table, but once our order was taken service went quick. I was really pleased with the meal, my mom said "This is the best she has had in awhile". She is already planning out next night out here."

  • "Had a 6:30 reservation. Plenty of open tables but we had to wait 20 minutes for them to seat us. Do not know if it was a server problem but they had 2-3 people working the hostess stand. Maybe they could have put one of them on tables."

  • "We celebrated my friend's birthday and we started with a light, refreshing cocktail. Delicious! Then we both ordered the Ahi tuna salad and it was the BEST I've ever had. Both my friend and I were amazed at how good everything was, right down to the Key Lime Pie. I will order that again, and keep returning! Compliments to the Chef."

  • "We made our reservations while in transit and were a few minutes late. But our reservation was held. The restaurant was fairly empty. But the service and food were excellent as it has been in the past. We noticed a few new menu items on the lunch menu. But I do adore those crab cakes and fries. So I stuck with my tasty usual. My guest on the other hand had the smokey burger (Canadian bacon, jack cheese, chipotle sauce, & grilled onions). It was different -never had a burger with Canadian bacon -but good. If you're there, give it a try!"

  • "131 Main in Dilworth is a terrific "go-to" option. Always good food, good service, comfortable and comforting ambiance. The bar is a strong feature, but not obtrusive and the wait staff are consistently helpful and cheerful without being intrusive. It is a great place worthy of consideration for any occasion. It is especially welcoming when you want a quiet, relaxed dinner, a couple of drinks, or both."

  • "My husband and I met some friends at 131 Main on Saturday, June 21st. Tom and I had traveled all the way from Spartanburg, SC and our friends came from the China Grove/Landis area. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal and visit! The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I do so love and enjoy seeing that part of Charlotte, as I used to live in Charlotte before moving to South Carolina. We will, most definitely, visit 131 Main in Dilworth again some time...hopefully SOON!"

  • "We typically go to 131 Main in Cornelius which we really enjoy. This time we decided to try the Dilworth location. Loved the ambiance, a bit more modern. Loved the service , very attentive. The manager was outstanding. As always, loved the food. My husband is addicted to the ribs. I like to try something different each time I go. I haven't been disappointed yet. We've been to the Ashville, Cornelius, and Dilworth locations. Blakeney here we come!"

  • "I really like the food at 131 Main. The atmosphere is very nice and it makes for a very nice dining experience. The lunch portion of the crabcake entree was a little over priced for me but it was so tasty, I didn't dwell on it. I'll definitely keep coming!"

  • "The food was delicious and a very nice menu. I would like to see a little more vibrant crowd on a Saturday night but it was a holiday weekend. The server was a bit intense and taking dishes away too soon and trying it overly direct us to a premium wine. I really enjoyed the food which was amazing."

  • "The food and drinks were wonderful, but the waiter was not attentive. That was the only downside of the night. I really liked the valet service since parking can be difficult. "

  • "131 Main is one of our local favorite spots, the food is always consistently good. Their Baby Back Ribs are the best we've ever had, and I tried the pan fried flounder which was absolutely delicious. We recommend this restaurant to all of our friends, and think it is a great place to bring out of town guests as well."

  • "Went there for lunch and was seated immediately. Outside patio overlooks East Blvd and despite traffic right there, it's covered not noisy. The waitstaff was amazing. The person who sat us, took the time to tell us about the specials. Then, left to allow us to decide. Our glasses of water was at our table quickly and never went empty. To top it off, the food was delicious! The fish tacos were delicious, not dry, nice and flaky and very flavorful. Will definitely go for lunch again."

  • "This has been one of our favorite eating places so we were surprised when our appetizer of grilled artichokes was served with cold spots on inside. We were doubly surprised that when they redid the appetizer, they brought out our entrees soon after which turned what was planned as a casual dinner into one that we only enjoyed the appetizer for a couple of minutes before we had to then go on to our entrée while it was hot. Ended up taking most of our appetizer home so we could eat another day. We thought they would figure out how to delay our main meal (even if they had to start again from scratch) until after we had a chance to enjoy our entrée."

  • "Skillet corn bread split for the table as an appetizer was truly the bomb! Wood plank salmon wears perfectly cooked. The wild rice salad was a little strange, but ok."

  • "My family took my Mom here on Mother's Day and had a great experience. I have been to 131 Main in Dilworth several times, but it has been a few years since I had last been here. Everyone at our table said their food was wonderful, and no one had a single negative comment regarding their food. Portion sizes were very good and the quality of the food was excellent. Two of us had crab cakes and thought they were fantastic, and my Dad said his shrimp and grits were the best he had ever had (one of his favorite dishes). Our service was extremely good - absolutely no complaints. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "While in transit we found availability and popped in for the usual. USUAL=great food & excellent service. I chose an item off the summer menu -fried flounder. The portion was enormous but light and non-greasy. I always enjoy the fries and PNG slaw. We may pop in again to try something else off the summer menu."

  • "Although the tuna app. started us off a bit rocky the service staff and management turned the entire event into a fabulous dinner in a matter of minutes. The Ninja like Waitstaff had the slightly fatty appetizer off our table, side plates and silverware included, is seconds. Complimentary corn bread and new plates promptly in front of us and a new tuna app. re-ordered. The second one was great. The service and attitude of everyone was great. I am just sorry I didn't get the name of our primary server. She rocked!"
