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.

We were celebrating a special birthday, so wanted everything to be "right". We were not disappointed. Service, food, & atmosphere all combined to make it an evening to remember. We were seated outside, as previously requested, and found the patio to be charming. With all the plantings, the area seemed like a private garden. The excellence of the food and the service showed that training and staff selection are given top priority. Thank you for a perfect evening.

Tagliatelli had hard spots. Not al dente. Sauce more like chunky spaghetti sauce than bolognese.

Delicious food, fantastic service as always. However the noise level prevents conversation. Our table was in front of the entrance door which was okay, but it was extremely loud in the restaurant. Last visit we dined outdoors and it was very pleasant; I'll have to request that again next time around.

So amazing. Extra touches all night. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and had the best time ever. Our server Chandler was spot on. Nick, the manager came by a couple times and the kitchen was totally on point. Our best meal out in quite a while

We enjoyed our night out without the kid. Food was great with lots of interesting choices. Menu was a bit confusing though. It wasn't clear whether some dishes were meant as an appetizer or an entree. Some entrees came with sides, some don't. I like the variety, but I definitely needed help from the waiter to get my bearings.

Booked online and specific request for outdoor seating. Arrival d was offered poorly social distance seating near the kitchen and major walkways for service personnel. Hostess and manager admitted that they overlooked outdoor seating notes as it was not available upon our arrival at reservation time .We sat at the bar and because of the option not offered., We stayed at the bar and have very service in the bar from Hannah.

I chose this restaurant because it got good reviews on OpenTable and it was halfway between two parties. We had a late lunch reservation, but our server was outstanding. His name is Charles and he was not bothered that we were the last table in the restaurant. We all ordered something different and every entrée was delicious! Will definitely go back!

Outdoor patio was filled but a separate "private" room allowed spacing (though not quite as warm and inviting), while the main dining room was packed. Dinner was excellent!

Thank you Rooster’s for always serving such delicious food and providing above and beyond customer service. I had a special request for our dinner tonight and they were able to make it happened. Champagne 🥂 was ready when we arrived and the table decorated as I requested. Waiter Chandler was phenomenal and attended to our needs for the evening. Also, the hostesses and servers were attentive , sweet, and polite. Thanks to the manager for knowing about our special occasion and stopping by our table to chat. Will return.

First let me begin my review by saying that our worthless governor and his stupid mask requirement makes dining out a joke within itself! So my review may be tainted from the outset. It was my wife's birthday celebration and Rooster's it our usual "go to " place to celebrate special occasions. Due to my sister in law being on her way home from the hospital I left my phone on. When it rang I received a nasty reminder from the restaurant to silence my phone. I would have accepted the admonishment better had the table next to us not been cackling like a flock of chickens and laughing so loud I found it hard to even talk over the commotion.
We always split a fried oyster salad and did so this time. Rooster's has the best tasting fried oysters I have ever eaten and I have lived before on the coast. My wife and I both ordered steaks she the Filet Mignon and I the grass fed Ribeye. Out of character,my wife ordered hers medium well (even after I questioned her about her normal choice of medium) so it was clearly her fault that her steak was ruined. I ordered mine medium rare and while the steak had an excellent taste the texture was stringy and had some gristle. The truffle coated fries, which came with the steak, for my taste would have been better replaced with a loaded baked potato.
The serving staff was unusually young and by their lack of meaningful dialogue and mannerism had probably never eaten out at anywhere more formal than a Golden Corral. The rather inexpensive NAPA Cabernet we ordered was excellent as was the "to die for" Coconut Cake! I had a cup of coffee with my dessert as well and it was good quality as well. Despite prior notification of a special occasion the only indication of a birthday was a single candle on the cake that the waiter when serving had to ask whose birthday is it? No table decoration like we had there before. Sorry to be so negative. Rooster's is one of my all time favorite restaurants. Maybe it was my attitude that is to blame!

The prices seem a little high but the food is excellent, we have eaten here several times and we attribute the high price to covid 19.
We Would recommend to eat here.

This was a memorable lunch, thanks in large part to the guidance of our waiter, Patrick. The soups, tomato bisque and a peach soup were excellent as were the crab cakes, which are a specialty. These really tasted of crab and were thoughtfully seasoned. A very good creme brûlée rounded out a superb meal.
Great efforts were made to ensure social distancing as well as cleanliness at The Roosters and I would recommend this restaurant in all departments .
