    World travelers here. Service was great, food was overpriced for what you get. My partner was not happy with the cook of the steak. The sides were bland just not memorable. The mashed potatoes tasted like something out of a box or not fresh like leftovers. The music was too loud. Rap music does not compliment a candlight dinner. Overall experience was below average.

    So, I went there to celebrate my birthday Saturday, with a couple of friends. From our entry until the time we left, the customer service was Outstanding! Monica our sever was Awesome! The food... from the tasty, savory Mussels Fra Davio appetizer to the of Crab Stuffed Flounder entree...and the Grilled Ceasar Salad...(yes, I said Grilled!!!) was just AMAZING!!!! I plan to return to try some of the other scrumptious-looking items on the menu.

    Service and meals were less than mediocre. The menu choices are excellent on paper but poorly assembled. All the pieces for an excellent restaurant are present: except management and execution. I hope someone has the fortitude to make this restaurant what it can be.

    Thought the food was overpriced for quality of taste. Reservation for 6:15. Wait staff worked hard, but only three waiters and struggled to service all tables. Had a drink from the bar that wasn’t great.

    My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The staff showed attentiveness and care throughout our entire time. They were all personable and easy to talk to. The food was fantastic and it was really difficult to narrow down my decision to just one entree because everything looked so tempting. The entrees we decided on thoroughly exceeded our expectations. I can’t wait to come back and try another entree and their brunch!

    Food is fresh and delicious. I’ve always enjoyed the ambiance. It’s a really nice spot for a date night or just an intimate setting for a small gathering. The music playlist is awesome!! We came for dinner, but the brunch I’d delicious as well. This has always been my go to spot, since it opened.

    The Chers Kitchen is conveniently located on the second level of the Carolina Place Mall. The menu was modet with a nice selection of proteins and even a vegetarian entree or two. The cocktail, beer and wine menu was marginal at best before discovering that they were out of one of their white wine offerings. The food was well prepared and tasty.

    The air conditioner was not working I think because it was so hot at 11 am for brunch. They were out of several dining options on the menu. Though they offer brunch, but they do not have coffee.

    Perfect for a date night or dinner for your family. The restaurant is very clean and set up well. The staff is respectful and knowledgeable or the menu. The food presentation is stunning. We ordered 2 appetizers. I recommend the truffled fries and the crab cakes. We ordered the Cajun stuffed lobster ravioli, blackened chicken penne Alfredo, and my kids picked the chicken strips and fries. The food is so delicious and so flavorful. We plan on going back very soon. I recommend this restaurant over any restaurant.

    We went in a Saturday night about 6:30pm and the restaurant was empty…red flag. This was the worst food experience I have ever had at a restaurant. My husband and I ordered the Tomahawk Ribeye. There is NO way this was a ribeye. It was more like a pot roast. It was overcooked…both times. Then the kitchen sliced it off the bone (what?!?) and it was sliced the wrong direction so the meat was so tough and chewy you couldn’t really eat it. Such a disappointment. The only positive was the wait staff was amazing!! Our server Tiffany was excellent and tried everything she could to make our experience better.

    This is a place we will likely give a second chance to. BUT, the experience was not a good one. We were a party of six so when we placed the reservation we had to put done a CC with the disclaimer that if we were late or a no show we would be charged $25 per person. That would seem to imply that tables were at a premium and the service you should expect would be above par, etc. However, even though we showed up on time, we waited over an hour for our table. A table we were told every 20 minutes was being clear and reset but was untouched for most of that time even though no one was sitting at it. We ordered drinks a the bar (loose descriptions of the 4 chair counter top with limited liquor options, etc.) and as soon as we ordered our drinks after waiting 40 minutes already for our table, the bartender left to go serve food but never actually served any food, but rather just stood over by the kitchen service window for a few minutes and then returned. When he returned he asked us how to make the drinks we ordered. In fairness he mentioned he was “the dad” just filling in and didn’t really know what he was doing. Needless to say after waiting over an hour for a table “to be cleaned” not being able to get drinks, etc. we had no choice but to leave. All that to say the restaurant was obviously having a rough night!!! However, from what we could see in the hour we had to observe, the food LOOKED amazing coming out of the kitchen. And, for the most part, the staff was very understanding and apologetic for the situation. For those two reasons we are hopeful that if we get a chance to try this place again on our next visit that the experience will be much different. I would recommend giving this place a chance but be prepared to be patient and show lots of grace:)

    Our first visit at Lake Wylie was awesome and while a little bit pricey, well worth it in overall value. We loved it. Today it was surprisingly underwhelming. The stuffed French toast is a bit overpriced at $26 for 3 pieces of Toast. The ambiance was nice but the overall experience wasn’t as good as before. I hope it goes well for them at this location as the food in general is very good.
