See all specials

The hostess, Kiera, was able to seat us before our reservation time. We were at 204 North to get a better feel of the restaurant for a rehearsal dinner next year. Kiera, along with the front of house manager tameka, took a little extra time to tell us about event space that’s available upstairs. They were both so eager to tell us the different options and gave us a business card to reach out to the woman in charge of events! We are looking forward to coming back! More

Steak | Uptown, Charlotte

Food is always amazing here. Both lunch and dinner. Ambiance is ok and drink service can be lacking depending on who your server is. Also, something to note. The restaurant reported to open table that we never showed up for our reservation (while we were still sitting in the restaurant!!). I even told the host that I was there for a reservation specifically booked from OpenTable. Don’t bother choosing an occasion when booking, they seemingly had no idea what the occasion was, or just completely ignored it. Wouldn’t recommend a birthday. Not the best ambiance for a date. But business dining and everyday dining it’s great! More

Noble Smoke BBQ
Noble Smoke BBQ
Reviews Coming Soon
Barbecue | Uptown, Charlotte

For 25 years, Chef Jim Noble chased his dream of making barbecue all over the South, crisscrossing the Carolinas, traveling to Texas twice, and sampling ribs and pork sandwiches everywhere in between. Off the road, he'd get lost in books and cookbooks, reading up on a tradition that is nothing short of personal to pitmasters and diners alike.

The opening of Noble Smoke marks the end of this long journey. It's a tribute to the legendary pitmasters that made (and sometimes broke) the rules. It's a heartfelt demonstration of Noble's longtime love for smoked meats. Most of all, it's a place to relax Southern-style and enjoy some great barbecue with friends.More
