North Carolina chef and restaurateur, Jim Noble founded Rooster’s: A Noble Grille with the intention of being relevant without being trendy and to impress without being pretentious. That commitment has carried us through two decades and continues to lead us on today.

Knowing that simple food is harder to execute given there is nowhere to hide the flaws, we go to great lengths to source quality ingredients from local farmers and purveyors. We then take all the time necessary to develop their flavors —using both European and modern techniques—always working from scratch.

Our menu features tried and true staples like our spit­-roasted chicken cooked over open fire as well as progressive daily​ specials and elevated bar bites featuring Executive Chef John Bobby’s latest experiments inspired by the seasons and regional ingredients.

At Rooster’s, you’ll always find something new served with an honest commitment and consistently warm care.

Noble's has always been a staple for our family. Consistently good. Servers are friendly. I would like to see some more innovation in food come to Winston as a whole. But I always enjoy Noble's! The duck is to die for.

The restaurant was starting to get busy when we arrived. The food came out at a nice pace and was wonderfully prepared. The server knew a good amount about wine pairings and his delivery and attention to detail were perfect.

It was a wonderful night. Our guest had never been there; he was very pleased about the food and seemed to enjoy the evening as much as my husband and I did. I think this was our third trip there. Our server, Patrick, was great! He was very helpful as we perused the menu; he knew just when to appear and when to give us time to enjoy conversation. It was a memorable evening!

It was a very busy Saturday night just before Christmas, so the noise level and overall ambience were not quite where it normally is, but our overall experience was still wonderful. Our server was great, food was amazing and we had a nice bottle of wine to go along with it. Live festive music would have been a good touch, but may have been drown out by the sound of the loud parties. Nobles continues to be one of our favorite go to places for a nice evening out and we will be back again soon.

This was the second or third time eating here after the name changed from Nobles to Roosters. In our opinion the restaurant has only gotten better! We just about made a meal out of side dishes but I did have the crab cakes that were outstanding. The service was efficient but friendly - we will be back.

Always enjoy dining at Noble's. Food and service is great. Patrick was our server and did an excellent job. We dined on crab cakes and the sheepshead (special) which were excellent. Great menu selections and great wine selections.

Had a wonderful birthday dinner at Rooster's. We had a party of 7 and every meal and app that we ordered were amazing! The duck entree was by no doubt one of the best I have ever had. The wait staff is very attentive and courteous. We have frequented Rooster's for lunch a few times (which is always delicious...especially their tomato bisque!), but have never been for dinner. It is now our favorite restaurant for both lunch and dinner!

Lights were bright. Service was slow. Food was average. Short rib looked and textured like it was from the prepared food case. Bolognese was too tangy to eat. Wahoo was overcooked and dry. Oyster salad used to be amazing. Not anymore. Even the pumpkin cake was disappointing. Tasted like eating pure butter. I don’t know what’s happened but it was a let down night for us.

I love this restaurant for its food and great service. However it is a difficult place to have a conversation while dining because it is so noisy. The interior is beautiful but it has no soft surfaces to absorb noise. When the weather allows, we always ask to be seated outside in order to be able to comfortably converse during dinner. When the inside is full of people, the noise level makes conversation very difficult.

We went to Rooster's for a birthday dinner with 11 people on a Saturday night. The food was really wonderful, and the environment was great for our party. I was pleased with the beer selection too. The food quality and cost together with the environment presents as upscale dining, but the service does not quite match. While friendly, we were often chasing down service for drinks already ordered, water refills, etc. Small detail, but the table was fully set with wine glasses, and the glasses were not removed once drink orders were placed and no one ordered wine. I'd return for lunch, but I recommend going somewhere else for a special occasion.

The food sort of reminded me of pub food. Lots of smoky flavor and heavy with a lot of butter and salt. This used to be more of Americanized French cuisine but it has clearly changed. We were disappointed in the fact that we were in a big hurry and they told us that the bread pudding would take 20 minutes so we budgeted for that and after 35 minutes it was still not there. We ended up leaving without the dessert even though we had paid for it. The manager called us and apologized.

Great shaded patio for lunch. Server Chandler was attentive and very accommodating to every request. The food was great as always and never disappoints. The menu had a great variety of choices for lunch. Food came out hot and great portion size. We will be back very soon.
