Seafood
ROCKSALT Charlotte brings you a sustainable seafood experience in an intimate, rustic setting. Our oyster bar is front and center to showcase the freshest oysters around, grown by our owner. The wood-fired grill brings savory depth to land and sea-based proteins. Our wine and beer selections are carefully curated and our cocktail list evolves continually. And we have incredible non-seafood options as well, such as our Chef's Cut - a rotating choice of steaks cooked on our open fire! We have two patios - one that is covered and affords great views of the surrounding area, another that is uncovered and a great place for walk-ins to wait for their table while grabbing a drink. Reservations recommended but we try to accommodate as many walk-ins as we can. Please be advised that reservations are held for 15 minutes before cancellation. Guests are reminded that seatings are limited to 2 hours max. All members of parties must be present to be seated.

    On Saturday night , my friends from NY and I met in Charlotte. Made reservations , let them know we were on our way . Hostess was NOT on her game at all. No welcome greeting, told us it would be 1/2 an hour. Asked if we could wait at the bar to wait but took us to a table . Hmm Was either medicated or something??? Not someone you want to represent your restaurant. Food was fine , not amazing but the kitchen was working hard and executed. Our waiter Trip made our evening. Restaurant floor had trash all over it???

    Way over priced but ok food. Oysters were great but it’s hard to mess those up. Seabass was $88 and all it tasted like was Cajun. My shrimp and grits was $40. That’s expensive for that dish. $12 for a kids Mac n cheese is insane. And $60 for a grilled piece of halibut. Server was insanely kind and amazing with our kids. But overall I felt robbed.

    Then menu that was on open table didn’t match when we got there. It’s an oyster joint but they ran out of oyster Rockefeller, hmmm. Then the shrimp and grits were overly salted which i don’t mind but i need to get my blood pressure checked. The grits were dried out surprisingly odd that it was messed up. The sweet potato hash for some reason the potato had a sour after taste. We didn’t touch it after the first bite. I would not recommend this place nor go back.

    I was sad that many of the small plates I used to love here have been removed from the menu. My lobster risotto was ok but I felt that the red sauce overwhelmed the rest of the dish. Drink service was ver my slow and I overheard the server tell another table that there were only four martini glasses in the whole place, so they were waiting on the dishwasher! I was once a big fan and hope this place can find its footing again.

    We were there for Queen's Feast. I think they were a little short-staffed, which is why I'm only giving 4 stars. I've been to Rock Salt before, and everything was perfect. It continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte.

    The food is great, but they need to work on the execution of the experience rather than cramming a ton of people into the restaurant. Our server was stretched thin and the bar was really backed up. Our food it was really good, but it took a really long time to get it.

    We had a wonderful experience during restaurant week! All of our food was delicious, although the lobster risotto was just ok. Could have used more seasoning and flavor. Highly recommend the chowder, crab avocado toast, and filet. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Definitely planning to come back!

    We tried Rocksalt for the first time as part of Queen's Feast January 2024. We got their oysters (raw and cooked), oyster and clam chowder, apple and fig salad, scallops and lobster risotto. The oysters were amazing! It seems like their cocktail sauce was homemade, almost more like a BBQ sauce, but it was still very tasty! The oyster and clam chowder was flavorful. The salad dressing could have been more acidic to balance the cheddar cheese and oil in the vinaigrette. The scallops and lobster risotto were seasoned nicely and had great flavors. Their old fashioned was small and tasted slightly watered down. They normally add a 22% gratuity automatically for Queen's Feast. This should be advertised on the website instead of only at the restaurant, and really, 22% is rather steep! Our waiter removed it since he said our entree took longer than normal. We thought the timing was actually very good to give us time to digest the first two courses. However, we were glad the gratuity was removed because our service was just OK. Our waiter never checked back after each course to make sure everything was to our liking, and we never got a refill on our water. We still tipped 18% because I have worked in the service industry before and understand tipping oh too well, but I think for something like Queen's Feast they should remove the automatic gratuity and give their customer's the ability to tip freely.

    Higher overall rating if service had been better. Wrong order brought to our table. Waited a long time in between courses and water glasses sat empty for a long time. Some food arrived cold and had very unpleasant taste. Oysters and chowder were great. Crab toast needed more crispness and ate a little soggy. Scallops cooked very well but not a fan of the saffron rice. Mussels sat at the pass for 30 min before brought to our table and those were sent back. Management was helpful in rectifying situation though.

    The apple-fig salad is excellent. The grilled romaine is not as tasty as previously. And the scallop were lightly seared which as should be.

    Food was good, we went for restaurant week. Service was just ok. They include a 22% service charge, so I guess there is no incentive for excellent service. Also, our bill was not itemized, we had cocktails and 2 deserts for four people which came to nearly $200. For those reasons will not go again.

    Thought the mussels were plump and tasty, as was the grilled Cesar salad. The prices were a tad high based on the ambiance, which was pretty causal and quite loud. At the time we went there were a ton of little kids there. Our server and the host were great. Overall, pretty decent experience.

    Made last minute NYE reservation when plans changed. Caesar salad was barely dressed and for Parmesan they used stale and bland bagged shredded parm and not freshly grated. Crab cakes were cool/Luke warm and mushy and lobster risotto tasted pretty good but lobster was very chewy. We were discussing maybe getting dessert when server showed up with the check without asking if we wanted anything. Probably did us a favor because we popped over to Amalie’s just before closing and had a great tiramisu. For the prices, would have expected a higher level of service and better quality. Won’t be going back.

    My experience was amazing. I enjoyed the oysters. We had to wait a little longer than usual, although it wasn’t packed, but our waitress was beyond amazing. I tried the grilled cesar salad and would never try it again for $12. It. was literally a hunk of romaine with sauce and cheese. 😑 Otherwise, it was great!

    We just had oysters, salad & soup. They were all great. Went at 3:30 so not busy. Oysters came out quick. But next round took over 10 minutes even though there were only about 5 tables of guest. Our waitress was just lovely and on top of things. Was not her fault that the oyster shucker was slow. Overall a good choice for seafood

    Dee, Leann(sp), the general manager along with the entire staff was wonderful. The only negative was the cheddar Bay biscuits as they were hard as hockey pucks, however it was removed from my bill and new biscuits were made, but sadly I never got to try the new batch. The mussels in the chipotle sauce was to die for! Great recommendation from Dee! It just needed ALOT of bread to soak up all that delicious broth. Oh and the spicy margarita? A thousand times yes!!! All in all, I'll be returning soon!

    We have enjoyed Rock Salt in the past, but this was a very poor experience. It started with the half shell oyster sampler. The oysters were mangled and contained a lot of shell chips. In addition, the server did not bother to explain the order of oysters. Next, after waiting about an hour for our salads (there appeared to be only one other party at the time), we told the server to cancel our order and to give us the check. Given the bad service, we were surprised the restaurant added a 22% large party tip to our bill for five. We could excuse the issues, but the staff did not seem to care. We will not be going back.

    Went with my husband and friends after wanting to try this place for a while. Overall, we all agreed we likely wouldn’t come back for dinner. Great spot for oysters, but atmosphere was really more of a lunch place. The oyster + clam chowder was incredible and mussels were great. I, unfortunately, ordered the scallops for my main dish and they were overcooked and rubbery; for a restaurant at this price point, that was disappointing. My advice is come for lunch and order oysters/mussels and chowder, and call it a day!
