131 Main - South Park
Just had a mother's day lunch with my wife & family here. I am in love with that corn bread! Order it every time we come here! I had the rainbow trout with kale salad, and my wife had crab cake with a Caesar salad. The food is always top notch, and very tasty. It is on the pricey side, but i will gladly pay for the quality of food i receive. The atmosphere is nice & relaxed, they play good music, and the staff is more than helpful. Only bad thing is that the tables are bolted down, so if you have a big party you will either have 2 separate tables, or you can try to fit in the booths which are a pretty good size. Overall great experience! Good place for a special occasion.
Had a reservation for 4 people. Called to add another couple. Was told no. Dont bother trying them. If a new restaurant really wanted to survive it wouldnt have turned away a 6 person reservation. And on top of that the hostess was rude and didnt even bother attempting to make it right. Youd think for a casual new restaurant theyd go above and beyond for patronage. No such luck. Wouldve been a nice sized check for them as well. We were excited to have them around the corner but will not be frequenting 131 main.
Our visit was limited to the bar area for some drafts and appetizers. Had the guacamole and pimento cheese dip nachos. The tortillas chips were light and salted right. The dip was good as well. The outdoor waiting area is very inviting but a little hot in the summer months. The dining area got busy early so there was a wait for tables. The draft selection was a bit limited but all and all a good time was had by all.
Wow! I haven't lived in Charlotte for over 4 years but I still adore South Park. 131 Main was not a disappointment. Try their grits. Sounds simple but it's not. Had them with crab cake Benedict brunch dish and it was outstanding!
The food is GREAT!!! I had the cornbread as a starter and the shrimp and grits for my entree. I would say give this location is a try. It is a brand new location and the training is not easy. So for those who did not have a good experience the first time please try again. And if you have an issue speak with a manager. I know they will do their best to make it right. But again great food great atmosphere.
