I love Roosters, but usually go to South Park location. For lunch the portions were far too small and it was overpriced for what we received. Also, there was a massive fire and a shooting as we left, so ...

We just love Roosters! We live in Indian Land and every time we come Uptown for a concert or show we eat at Roosters. Even though
we probably should try somewhere else we just always end up at Roosters. The food is delicious and excellent value for money spent. Wait staff and management super hospitable. Location perfect for either the Belk or Knight Theater-parking is easy. So why go anywhere else?

This was our first visit to a Rooster`s restaurant. Even though we were 15 minutes late for our reservation; they still held our table for us. The food was absolutely fantastic. This will be our go to spot when taking in downtown entertainment.

Food is good but it comes to the table cold or barely warm, everything is ala cart and for the prices you should at least get a side item. Service is good but very slow.

They had a large party around our high top table (of 6) in the downstairs area by the bar. It seemed like this might have impacted their ability to serve us in a timely manner.

We enjoyed a meal before a show at the Belk Theatre and it was out of this world. The restaurant was very crowded the night we were there. However, I had made a reservation and the table was ready for us when we arrived. We were celebrating a birthday and were very impressed that not only did our wait staff know and remember who was celebrating but the hostess, who had seated dozens of people since we had arrived, even remembered to wish them a Happy Birthday as we were leaving. The food was excellent. This being our first visit, we wanted to get a feel for an array of foods from the menu. The Grilled Shrimp were my favorite! I think I could even go as far as to say they were the best I have ever had and having lived at the NC Beach and growing up there, I have eaten ALOT of shrimp. I was a little skeptical when I didn't have salt or pepper on my table because I over salt everything I eat and sometimes over-pepper as well. I didn't even need it. EVERYTHING we ordered was awesome and perfectly seasoned. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Our favorite Charlotte restaurant! While we've never had a dish we didn't love, we do tend to default to hanger steak, au gratin potatoes, and asparagus. We share the sides but not the steaks! All delicious.

Uniformly great food, BUT what really made it was our excellent server who expertly navigated is they the menu, making sure we ordered well and not too much. The chicken wings and grits were both really magical.

Outstanding food, ambience, and service as always at this location. Love the changing daily menu. Everything I’ve tried has been outstanding. We always sit at chef’s counter to keep kids occupied. They love watching chefs prep food. Chefs interact with kids. My wife is hooked on the scallops. They are consistently great every time.

We were so excited to come to this restaurant, the menu and decor, on their website, looked awesome and they were, HOWEVER, the service was horribly inadequate. We were there for lunch. It was not crowded at all, we were in town for the Queen concert and we were looking forward to having time to walk around and see downtown. We ordered our food and waited. While we waited a group of six came in and was seated across from us. They ordered with our waiter also. While we waited this group received their food. Remember party of six. We were a party of two. Our waited Spent large amounts of time chatting them up. After they had left our waiter came back to our table and apologized and admitted he had forgot to put our order in for the kitchen but it wouldn’t be much longer. We told him we wanted to get out as quickly as possible. ONE HOUR AND FIFTEEN MINUTES later we received our food. His response was to offer us a free dessert. REALLY??? You’ve delayed us for an absurd amount of time and your response was to make us wait longer for dessert??? I feel part of our bill should’ve been reduced. Food was great and the decor was also great, how sad to have this service and response diminish our experience. To Roosters management, what is your thought?????? Is this what is okay for your customers???

The restaurant was busy prior to a show at the belk, but the service wasn’t rushed and the food was delicious. We had hanger steak cooked perfectly and the fried catfish which was crispy and flaky. Had time for dessert and the gelato was outstanding. Will certainly be back

Our server was knowledgeable and even a little funny. The food was delicious as always. The mashed potatoes are to die for and the brussel sprouts were just as amazing. I had the shrimp and my husband had a fish special. We were both extremely pleased. We were able to have a delicious meal and make it to our show with plenty of time without feeling rushed in the least. We’ll definitely be back! Thanks again Rooster’s- always a great meal!
