A word from Peculiar Rabbit
The Peculiar Rabbit is officially open! The Peculliar Rabbit is an American farm-to-fork gastropub. Gastropub has taken on a lot of different meanings in the last few years but we like to think of ourselves as a food-forward neighborhood pub. We take traditional English fare and infuse it with southern ingredients from local suppliers. While our menu is more culturally diverse than straight English fare, the common denominator of our offerings is our attention to culinary fundamentals; our focus on our craft. Our hope is to create a unique dining experience for our guests in our lovely dining and bar areas. That being said, as we are still blossoming as a business and neighbor we look forward to any feedback our guests have regarding their visits with us. All of your feedback assists us in focusing our energies and growing in the direction we need to so we can provide you with exceptional service and food that is extraordinary.

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great dinner overlooking uptown all while staying cool in the AC. You can go on the rooftop for a broader view but the view inside beats the heat."

  • "We totally enjoyed our dinner at The Peculiar Rabbit. It was our 34th wedding anniversary and we ate outside - a great night for it, overlooking uptown Charlotte. We had been there before and wanted something not to pricey but with inventive food. This is the place - wonderful service too. When we mentioned to our server that it was our anniversary he offered to provide dessert for free (had the cream cheese brownie - excellent) and attended to our needs nicely. Great food - great service - great view. We noticed lots of people coming and going so it must be a hot spot in Plaza-Midwood. Rightfully so."

  • "It's hard to find many good brunch spots around Charlotte so I'm glad I came across Peculiar Rabbit. I've been wanting to try it ever since reading the early glowing reviews after it opened. A birthday celebration made for a good reason to meet up for brunch. Andrew was an excellent server, very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We agonized over the many food choices and ended up with the spicy chorizo omelet and the shrimp and grits. Both great dishes. Will definitely be back again!"

  • "Food was delicious and had a fun atmosphere- we has drinks outside before heading to dinner inside."

  • "Really good food. My salmon was cooked perfectly. Only complaint was that they didn't read the table and bring things out as we were finishing. We felt aittle rushed as the dinner came out quickly and we hadn't finished the apps."

  • "we would certainly revisit this place. The food was outstanding. we had 5 people, apps, dinner and drinks...out the door for $185.00. You can't beat it...period..."

  • "Must go for the rooftop and summer air. By far the best thing in the plaza."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I had made reservations stating that it was my husbands birthday. They did not know and when I mentioned that I would like a desert for celebration, the hostess got me the manager and the manger who came to the table was very rude and loud. she did get us the brownie but her rudness took the fun out."

  • "This is the second time we have been to Peculiar Rabbit for brunch. Last time, a server never came to our table and we had to ask hostess for a server. This time, our server kept passing by and said he would be right with us -- several times. We finally placed our order and then had to wait and wait for the food. The waiter said the kitchen was really backed up and apologized. It was Fathers Day but there were several empty tables in our area. Management should realize that Fathers Day Brunch might be a little busy and plan kitchen staff accordingly. After we were finished, our waiter offered to "buy us a couple of drinks" for having to wait so long. By that time, we were ready to go and didn't want a drink. We won't be going back."

  • "Great place to take Dad for Father's day. We all enjoyed our food and service was good. Great place and I've always enjoyed going there. So accommodating no matter what your party size."

  • "We tried this restaurant after finding it on Open Table. It was OK, but I wouldn't make a special trip to go back. The building is neat. The menu was creative. Our waitress was uninterested. The shrimp and grits was quite salty and soupy. A personal pet peeve, the pink mold growing in it tells me the ladies' toilet hadn't been cleaned in a while."

  • "I love this place and have never had a bad experience. I had the schnitzel for dinner this time; it was good, but I prefer some of the other dishes (the meatloaf is outstanding!)."

  • "Great evening outside; good food and service. Looking forward to coming back and bringing friends. Enjoyed our evening out at Peculiar Rabbit!"

  • "I hate having to review "the rabbit" so poorly, this is a favorite place, usually. Food was just ok at bedt and service was terrible this past Sunday June 1. I was there with a friend for his birthday, made reservations and requested rooftop, which we got. Once up there it took at least ten min for the sever to acknowledge us, we were asked if we wanted a drink, ordered a mimosa and Bloody Mary. We were both hungry, so we ordered our meal. Literally, food came out within five minutes, before our drinks, I ordered two poached eggs w/ English muffin and friend ordered Egg Bene. Obviously everything was pre made, usually takes much longer to poach. And eng muffin was cold. Did not get catsup, had to take from other table. Thinking twice now! "

  • "Friends had recommended PR several months ago but we had not visited it until this weekend. The food was outstanding and the ambience was outstanding. Service was above average. This has moved into our top 10 Charlotte restaurants and we will return soon."

  • "We were visiting family in Charlotte who recommended Peculiar Rabbit for lunch on the roof top. Everything was great except for the heat! The roof top does not offer table umbrellas so lunchtime dining when it is sunny and warm can feel like you jumped into the frying pan. Would recommended going for breakfast or after sunset during the Spring/Summer season if you want a roof top view. The restaurant does have umbrella tables at the street level. Overall, nice experience."

  • "We sat on the rooftop and enjoyed the view. The food looked beautiful, but we found it lacked flavor. We ordered the bacon wrapped figs which we thought would be better with an extra fig and without the oily bread under it. The suause on top of it was pretty, but lack taste and felt oily. I ordered the lamb burger which came on a pita. The comercial pita was disappointing. "

  • "We had a great brunch this morning! The menu for Sunday brunch is fabulous! My husband had the American breakfast! He enjoyed it very much. Everything was cooked to perfection! I had the chicken, bacon, Brie salad. It was delicious. I had hoped for more bacon and Brie, but it was a delicious salad. I added a cup if fruit, $4...a smidgen over priced for what I received. Too bad it was before noon on a Sunday. We couldn't drink...but we look forward to going back again sometime that we can! "

  • "Meat loaf was delicious. Cheese cake with mango habanero sauce was excellent. Friendly wait staff with great service. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "The brunch menu is pretty good but I prefer the regular menu much more. Could also use some umbrellas on the rooftop bar. Little hot and dragnet with no shade at times. Great place to sit. Not so great with no shade. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Fantastic view from the roof, but the food was pub fare. I had the spaetzle which came out as a somewhat dry piece of fried chicken with the spaetzle on top. We still like the the PR, but they need to raise the bar on the food, or just end up another Midwood bar with a great rooftop patio. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We have eaten at PR several times, and I have to say that we go purely for the food, outside seating, and live music. However, I have never had decent service. This past weekend I think our waiter was high. He forgot our drink orders, and couldn't give any decent recommendations or answer questions. Pretty disappointing. "

  • "We were visiting and found this on open table. You will not be disappointed."

  • "Went with a group of co-workers after work for dinner. The ambiance was great, the views were fantastic but the food was mediocre. Two co-workers ordered the same salad and one recevied have of the items on the salad, I ordered a meidum well burger with no bun and a side salad with dressing on the side, I recevied a well done burger with bun and dressing on the salad. Our drinks took over 15 mintues to get to us. Recommend if youre looking for a good ambiance and drinks but do not recommend the food. "

    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The lettuces in out salads were wilted, tables were not bussed for hours as we sat outside, service was lacking. I have given this place 3 tries and I am disappointed each time. I do not believe it is any one person, it's the team. I will not be back unless it is simply for drinks and fries (and possibly the Mediterranean plate)! I had written a much more detailed and constructive review, however the length maxed out the allotted characters. I hope you all grow in the future!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The food was great, appetizer came out quickly, our server was sweet but then our dinner took an hour and 15 minutes which we found highly unacceptable. We went on a Saturday night, am positive this isn't the first time the restaurant was crowded on a Saturday night. We were highly disappointed in how long it took our meals to come out. Made no sense at all. Our server brought out a round of complimentary drinks but at that point we wanted food, not another round. We would give the Peculiar Rabbit one more chance but that's it."

  • "Met some friends for dinner and we were able to get seating in the roof with the gorgeous view if the Charlotte skyline. The food and the service were food. I would absolutely see this as a repeat experience."

  • "Everyone was very accommodating, the food was fantastic, and the beer list was suitable for everyone. I will definitely be back."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I have been several times and have loved it. This past time the food was just ok and some of the items I loved have been taken off the menu. The pork sliders I ordered had icing on the top... like a krispy kreme donut. Although it seems like a unique idea it just didn't work. Our waitress was not very patient with us or willing to help out. We asked for 2 tastings of beer and she asked us if we could just taste each others!?! She was busy and definitely did not want to make extra trips to our table. We asked if they could turn down the TV next to us because the volume was very loud but they never did. Overall, the experience was just ok. Their selection of beer is impressive and some dishes are good but for the money it's not worth it."

  • "We went to peculiar rabbit for dessert and wine on a Tuesday night. This experience took about two hours. They were out if the wine I wanted, the service was terrible, slow and unapologetic and the dessert (a farm to table restaurant) was frozen!"

  • "Second time here. Made reservations via opentable app and worked out great. Table was ready on time and everyone there was helpful."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This was my second time eating here and I really wanted to like it. My first time was very disappointing (salty or bland food and bad services) and although our services was great this time, I still left disappointed. I keep hearing great things, but PR hasn't really lived up to it's reputation. Overall, their prices are high for the portion size and only 1 person at our table really enjoyed their food. I do like to come here for drinks and will continue to do so (they have a great roof top view), but will refrain from eating here again."

  • "When the Rabbit first opened I was thrilled; innovative food, decent prices, both quality beer and wine and great decor. We used to go quite frequently. The other night my husband I went, forgetting that the reason we had stopped going is because we were increasingly disappointed. Service is painfully slow at times, the prices have gone up and the quality of food has gone down. Less creative, smaller portions, mediocre preparation. My salad had very little in it but far too much dressing, my husband's dish had what appeared to be and tasted like thin, inedible sticks and very little of substance to actually eat. I suspect that will be our last meal; also the wine is now overpriced."

  • "Went for a birthday dinner, which I mentioned in my reservation. The staff made our guest of honor feel very special throughout the evening. The atmosphere is relaxed and eclectic, the architecture and interior design is interesting and surprises await around every corner. The menu is both large and broad with familiar favorites and intriguing items for the adventurous. A nice hardwood firepit on the front plaza and a panoramic view of the Charlotte skyline from the upstairs veranda add a really nice touch to the restaurant. Our server was knew the helpful with food selections and knew the menu well. I recommend a visit to the PR to anyone"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The food and service were great. Like all restaurants these days, it is too loud. I didn't recommend it for groups for that reason- hard to hear each other. We didn't dine on the rooftop or patio, but I bet those would be the place to go in nice weather. Felt the menu was strong for brunch and very reasonable. Waitress was great."

  • "My husband and I love the Rabbit. We were a little sad that the devil's on horseback weren't on the menu - but we had the Mediterranean plate and that was wonderful. Great value for the price too. I was jealous of my husband's burger - I had the arancini... it was ok, but I should have got a burger! We'll definitely be back. :)"
