Kennedy's Premium Bar and Grill reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Friendly servers, good pub food

    We went here for a late lunch on a Saturday with our doggies since we were going to be in the neighborhood and were in "casual mode". Of course the idea was to sit on the patio since our 4 legged children would be with us, but we were blown away by the 2 instrument band playing (we sat as far from the speaker as we could, but it didn't help). We had to YELL to hear anything the other was saying and did as our lovely server if she could speak to management to please get the band to turn the sound down (the sax practically blew out our ear drums!). She did so, manager came out twice asking them to turn it down more, it was still WAY loud. This is coming from fans of the WHO! This is definitely a place for the "pub crawl crowd" who likes noise

    The menu listed on Open Table is not the same as there menu. They did not have mussels, steak and many things that were on the menu. If you change the menu you need to post the correct menu. Very disappointed and the waitress was rude.

    This is the third time we've had a birthday celebration at Kennedy's, and we've always been pleased with the accommodations, service, and food quality. It's a very welcoming atmosphere, even though it's usually fairly busy. For our group of 15, we had one server, and she was excellent! We never waited long for drinks, and she was very friendly and courteous. They were more than happy to accommodate our larger group (and we had room for more!). Despite the fact that they have basically no parking, we never have any trouble finding parking across the street. Cool atmosphere, great folks, good menu, good drinks, we'll be back!

    Kennedy's takes reservations, but they're not needed. Their website makes the place seem like a higher-end bar and grill, but it's on the shabby side. The hostess told us to seat ourselves. We ended up under a freezing AC unit and asked the server to direct us to a better table. She then said sarcastically three times for us to pick whatever table we liked. Had I known the female servers dress in very short cut-off jeans and tight shirts, I never would have dreamed of eating there. Upon moving ourselves to another seat and waiting for the server to come back (she didn't even bother to pick-up our menus) we just got up and left. There are too many other restaurants in town to bother with rude servers!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Six of us went for the first time looking for a casual place to enjoy a meal. Kennedy's has a great outdoor patio. We chose to sit inside and it was dark and our table was wobbly. For the appetizer we had the fried pickles. They were the best we'd ever had. I ordered the fried goat cheese hamburger and it was prepared just right and absolutely delicious. The bangers and mash were thoroughly authentic. The pear vinaigrette dressing on the salad was great. Others in our group were not so lucky. The special, roast pork with apples and cinnamon was thin and tough. The ribeye steak was inedible. To their credit they took the steak off the bill. For casual outdoor dining and authentic Irish food Kennedy's is a good choice - just order wisely.

    I made a reservation on open table. When we arrived they said that they did NOT HONOR reservations on Mondays! No mention of that on the website! The wait to eat was one hour. Awful experience with matrede and wait staff. We left. An unfortunate first impression.

    10 co workers set out for a good All You Can Eat Crableg spot to replace our traditional favorite, Vinnie's. We have a new favorite! Everything was better. The service was amazing and the crablegs were well seasoned and not waterlogged. We will return often!

    Went to watch the mayweather cotto fight, had a few drinks which were reasonably priced but a little light in the alcohol department. The food was great from our appetizers to our main dishes. Only complaint was that the service was poor but I will give them the benefit of the doubt since they were slammed because of the fight and cinco de mayo. I will go back again and as long as the service is better it's a solid choice to get good food and hang out. If the service is bad again example I had to go give my plates to the bus boy and get refills on drink after waiting at least 10 mins on them being empty then I am done!

    We did the All you can eat crab legs on a Monday night. Good price, good crab legs. Service was perfect and friendly. Suggested this special to three friends at work and they will be going soon. We were there early, 5 ish since we heard parking was an issue. Very limited parking but not a problem this time.

    OK for the younger sports bar customers but not so good for the older crowd. All tables are the high type and the food selection limited. We did not need a reservation for early evening on a Tuesday night as the crowd was very lite. Only one dessert selection and there was only one left which seemed to indicate a lack of inventory knowledge. Parking would be an issue on a busy night.

    Fun little spot for friends to gather. Beer selection good. Food though was cheap quality and not very good for Irish. Much better Irish pubs with great authentic food around Charlotte. The onion rings are not even a true beer batter...I was bummed!

    My friend and I went here for a "guys night" after work and we were both very pleased by the service, food, and beer selection. Our waitress was very helpful, and was attentive, considering we were her only table seated inside. She had good recommendations on beer and food, and gave her honest opinions (which were right on!). My buddy and I were hanging out, and we never felt pestered or abandoned despite it being a slow evening. Great onion rings, fantastic beer mixes (try the toasted lager mixed with the cider) and great servers!

    We watched the NCAA Championship basketball game with a group of 10 people and had a blast. Kennedy's was able to get us a table outside on the patio so we could enjoy the game and the great weather. I don't think they were fully prepared for the crowd on a Monday night but, they more than made up for it as the night went on with outstanding service and a few rounds on the house! I would def. go back to enjoy the patio again.

    We were very pleased with Kennedy's. The waitress was very nice and attentive and the food was certainly very good. My wife finally found a place In Charlotte that can make a decent Rueben and she loved the macaroni salad! My fish sandwich was excellent. Overall we'd recommend it highly!
