great place for dinner
The servers were friendly and efficient. They changed the menu since my first visit May, but everything was good. Our table got the devils on horseback, a peculiar burger, and the pepper steak sandwich.

The ladies from work took me for my birthday lunch and it was a blast. The food was delicious, the staff was superb and they even comped my cheesecake when they found out it was my birthday! Definitely going back.

How do you get on the roof???
Visited this restaurant last month and was told that the tables on the roof were for reservations only. In response, I made a reservation a week in advance and specified the roof deck. When I got to the restaurant I was told the roof deck is strictly on a first-come first-served basis and the wait was over an hour for the roof, and you have to know the manager if you want to reserve a table up there. Which is it?!? Exceptionally frustrating.

Terrific outdoor dining location
Terrific outdoor dining location on the roof especilally at sunset. The staff was very accomodating. Loved the devils on horseback and pork belly. The fish and chips was not up to par. Great beer selection on tap. I have already recommended this spot to friends and family.

The food was very good, and its presentation was outstanding. Inside dining can be noisy but the rooftop is awsome. I have been to Peculiar Rabbit twice, and both times the wait staff has been exceptional. I think the food overall is very good to outstanding. The bar scene can be a hot spot on week-end nights. The rooftop is very scenic and can be noisy but can also be romantic. I will definitely go again. Is also a good special occasion restaurant. It is our neighborhood gem.

Wednesday Night Winner
Happened to drop in Wednesday night and found wonderful music on rooftop. After a brief wait for an open table we enjoyed a variety of appetizers-all fantastic! Service was excellent and the sunset view of the uptown skyline tremendous. I recommend this place to anyone interested in a relaxing and friendly setting AND great food.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great and service amazing. Our waitress was outgoing, non-intrusive and everything she recommended to eat and drink was wonderful.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Noise level was very high on the second floor. This unfortunately affected our servers ability to hear the order correctly.
Otherwise the experience was great and will go again.

The food was excellent and
The food was excellent and fairly priced! The service was fine - just fine - not great, not bad. It was VERY noisy. There wasn't a band playing, or any special event, just a crowded Friday night. It was hard for my husband and I to have a conversation.

Unusual restaurant! Very different and something for everyone.the food was very good and the service excellent.
We were celebrating a wedding anniversary and treated to a wonderful desert.
The atmosphere is warm and friendly and there is outdoor dining, a bar with TV's and II is kid friendly. They have Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten free items on the menu.
Loved it and will return.

Peculiar but good
This time we sat on the 2nd floor. Very spacious area. cool and comfy. 1 guest chose the restaurant week menu. Tea Brined wings, OMB BBQ ribs with collards and bread pudding, & pound cake with strawberries. I tasted everything except the desert and agree with him, everything was totally delish. Guest 2 had Tea Brined wings & Waldorf salad. She thought things were peculiar but all in a good way! I had the fish and chips. Nothing to rant and rave on--it's fish and chips. But the tartar sauce is what made it all peculiarly good. It was a granny smith apple tartar sauce. Most certainly would recommend a friend and return myself to have any of the dishes again.

Far too loud
Your noise level question under #1 above does not give adequate options. The noise level was almost enough for us to leave before even ordering. As the evening went on, we realized that the biggest part of that issue was actually one table of only three people. But the truth of the matter is there is NOTHING to absorb noise. When we are paying those kinds of prices, we expect to be able to enjoy some conversation at our table as well as enjoy exceptional food!

Queen's Feast -- Restaurant Week
Thought I would give this a try during Restaurant Week. The special menu offered 4 different entree choices.. something for everyone. I went with the servers suggestion (ribs) -- while they were good, they were not OMG amazing! I expected fall off the bone -- nope. Hard to find the bones to cut the ribs apart. Collard greens were good (needed a tick more salt). The dessert -- The Elvis.. not was I expected. I really needed a knife. The best food offering of the night was the appetizer: Sliced tomatoes with blue cheese, balsamic vinegar and cucumbers (sliced very thin) - I could have eaten just that and been happy. My server Elizabeth was awesome. Very attentive but not in my face the entire meal - she let me enjoy dinnertime.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was awesome! It was kind of loud in the room we were in. Hard to have a conversation.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for restaurant week
Service was good, food was great! I had the ribs and they were amazing.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thanks to Restaurant Week...
If not for Restaurant Week I might not have found this gem of a restaurant. It's been open 9 months and I completely missed it. One block South of Central The Peculiar Rabbit offers a great bar (they actually made a great gimlet...), eclectic menu (tea-brined chicken wings, anyone) and lovely surroundings (deck seating, upstairs and downtairs--plenty flexible). But the food is the real star--top-notch ribs, chicken and beef dishes. We're bringing friends from out-of-town back this week.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great-Tasting Creative Meals
My friends and I were impressed with the creativity of the menu. Chicken & waffles...plus brussel sprouts?! That was a great combination! Great dessert menu--the Elvis was awesome...and large enough to share. Service was great, and we will definitely be returning.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this place...
Never have had a bad meal. The food is excellent and creative. Rooftop deck has great city skyline views. The neighborhood is vibrant, trendy and easily walkable. Parking can be a real pain but if all else fails, $5 to park at the shopping center across the street. Trust me, its worth the effort. Don't miss the Disco Fries. Best poutine south of Quebec.

Try the Nibblers First
First time to Peculiar Rabbit and took advantage of appetizers only and a salad for dinner. Appetizers are tasty and a good choice. Service was excellent, food came out quickly. Beer selection was lovely and the beer was fresh. Overall, a very nice meal.
Parking is a bit tricky though.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went for brunch and it was delicious! Our server was awesome as was our food. Perfect way to start a day!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great local gem
Our favorite local resteraunt with an ever changing menu.
Chef and service is top shelf!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not your normal food offerings, would go back when the rabbit is back on the menu!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM

8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite places
This place is definitely one of our favorite places to eat in Charlotte. The food is excellent! Try their burgers and the oxtail putin and fries; probably the best in town. Their menu changes frequently though, so if you think you might want to try something new, do it then. I really wanted to try their rabbit, but it wasn't on the menu this time. Guess we'll just have to come again!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great first time visit
Service, food, location, ambiance all great. Only con was the daily special was quoted at $30 and we were charged $32... ???
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our new favorite brunch spot
The rooftop was awesome! The food delicious and well priced. We'll be back and often

Chicken and Waffles!
I brought my date here today and we tried the chicken and waffles and pork belly. Also had the Devils on Horseback appetizer. The excellent meal was rounded out with a great beer selection and small but decent wine selection.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the lamb lollipops to the fish and chips to the calimari to the Southern Eton Mess, the food was quite good.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of the best hidden secrets of Charlotte. The food is fabulous, the ambiance is noisy, and everyone is really friendly. Order anything...you really can't go wrong.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food, Great View of the City
The food here is unique, not a menu you get at every restaurant. Also, try and eat outside! Beautiful view :)
Service is okay. Our waitress was very sweet but the restaurant was so busy that the entire dining experience was a little slow (2.5 hours in total, 45 of which were spent waiting for our check).
Regardless though, would return again! I liked it a lot!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful outdoor dining
This was a first time visit to the Peculiar Rabbit and we will definitely dine there again. Meal started with a refreshing cocktail and the deviled egg and mussel appetizer. The mussels need to come with some crostini's instead of 2 rolls as this would lend it a better way to share. We had to cut the rolls into 3 pieces each so everyone could have a bite of bread with the delicious mussel gravy. Entree's were very good and plentiful. All of the wonderful food was accompanied by a spectacular view of downtown in the distance. It's a great way to spend an evening!
9/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Food - Great Ambience
Loved it! The food was awesome, service rocked, and place was great! The chicken and waffles was the winner of the night!
The only thing I would say is they need to really do a better job at giving a visible queue to where parking is. It was our first time there so we were VERY lost on where to park, especially with all of the "tow away" signs posted in the adjoining parking lots...
Other then that we will definitely frequent this place!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a gorgeous night and I requested the rooftop in my booking on Open Table and we got to see sse sunset and the lights of the city come up. It was great and the food and service were good too!
9/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Awesome date night
I've eaten here twice and both times the food was awesome . The bacon wrapped figs were so delicious and the chicken and waffles were really good too. My husband had a huge burger that he said was great. It's nice they can cook burgers to the temp you want. Unique beer selection as well. All in all a great date night spot or meeting place for friends .
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the huevos rancheros for brunch -- a different take on the dish but still very good. The waitstaff was kind-of slow but the mimosas made up for it. I've been here for drinks and appetizers before and sat outside -- still a slow waitstaff but these guys know their beers and the food is always good.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, atmosphere, and service. City views and variety of beer on tap.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM

Love the food here. Service
Love the food here. Service was okay but the restaurant was very loud a lot if it due to the other servers.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed a wonderful meal
We enjoyed a wonderful meal on the roof top patio. The view of downtown charlotte is beautiful. The ambiance was perfect. My table was complmented by so many bc we were enjoying ourselves. The food was so delish n so unique. The lobster mac n cheese is soooooo good!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I were visiting
My friends and I were visiting from another state and stumbled across this place online. The ambience was perfect; you could go in jeans or a dress and be comfortable. Our server seemed to be spread thin. We were there later so maybe they cut some other servers before we got there. The food was amazing! The portions were smaller than what you'd be used to at other places but the quality and flavors were exceptional. It was filling and the wine selection was decent too.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My experience was great! The food was excellent and so was the service! I will most definitely go back!!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff was very attentive
The staff was very attentive - when the weather prevented the the outdoor area from being open, they called me to discuss options that would still allow for a gorgeous view of the city
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend, and I am please to say it did not disappoint. Great food for the money and the apps/small sharing plates were amazing. My only complaint is that it was extremely noisy when we were there, but that is to be expected with a popular place like this. We had heard that the upstairs patio is amazing, but it was quite cold that evening so we did not get the opportunity to check. The front outdoor waiting area with the fire pit was very nice, though. Would recommend this to anyone.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing atmosphere and great

Brunch is brillliant!
Definitely a fan. Recommend the French toast and the eggs benedict Oscar with crab cakes! Server was awesome! Can't wait to go back!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Restaurant in Plaza Midwood
Good is excellent and the rooftop has great views of the city. Service tend to be good, but they could use extra servers to improve, as the service tends to be friendly but a little slow.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
: too loud
Only complaint: too loud. Even our waitress said so.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Peculiar Rabbit was a great find! The food was excellent from the appetizer to the entrees to dessert. Our waiter steered us in the right direction for our beverage choices and provided excellent service with a sense of humor to go along with it!
