Spouse and I split the prime rib/fries and fish taco/nachos. Ample portion's, the prime rib was too finely sliced and lacked a proper texture though the taste was fine. Taco's were fresh generic fish-avocado-greens-tomatoes. Service was very good and polite.

One of my favorite places to go when I go to Biltmore Park! And Dewayne is our favorite. He is so personable. Even when we do not get him as a server he makes us feel like he just saw us yesterday! And the bone in Filet is THE BEST!

We went to this restaurant because we had our three dogs with us and wanted a pet-friendly place. This had high ratings on bringfido.com and also on Trip Advisor and so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We were seated on the heated patio that also had a warm, welcoming fire going. Our dogs were... More

My wife and I stopped at 131 yesterday for a mid afternoon meal. I had the shrimp and grits and she had the crab eggs Benedict, both were outstanding. The service was really good and the overall visit was excellent.

Staying at the Hilton just across the street on a very windy day. I didn't feel like walking too far for lunch, so the 131 fit the bill. This is a very attractive restaurant, very clean and well maintained. I sat at the bar. Bartender was very attentive and the service was great. My wife had eaten here before and... More

The food and experience met our expectations above and beyond. My wife and I went there for restaurant week and we were not disappointed. I always wanted to go to enjoy the ambience because it looked fancy. We definitely got the bang for our buck for Restaurant Week.

We are regulars at this place. Usually weekly. My husband is extremely picky as we are in the restaurant business ourselves. Great service. Fantastic and consistent food. If by some chance something comes out incorrect or not to your satisfaction they are always happy to fix it, recook it or bring you anything else and it's always brought back out... More

It has been a while since visiting 131 Main. Always a good experience. I had the Thai steak salad. The cuts of steak were generous and perfectly cooked. Wednesday night draft specials for $2 can't be beat!

My family and I dined here over Christmas break. We both had fish, salmon and trout. They were fabulous and fresh along with generous sides of asparagus, brussel sprouts and quinoa. The kids had several options to choose for although there is not a menu. The grilled cheese and chicken sandwich were huge and they both loved the food. The... More
