The service was great but the menu didn’t have the same items listed on the website. My guests had already pre-selected their choices before arriving to the restaurant.

The one glitch was they showed us to a booth that could not accommodate one of our large guests. It was embarrassing that the hostess did not notice that there was no way the other couple could fit in once the table was shifted to the other side. They did accommodate us at a four top after discussion. But it was embarrassing to our guests.

Was looking forward to the hanger steak. Not on the menu anymore per our server there is a shortage. Ordered the skirt steak prepared the same way as the hanger steak and the meat was not good! Otherwise all was great. We frequented this location a lot prior to the fire and we are so glad they are back open.

Service was impeccable. Hostess sat us in the open dining area outside the restaurant at my request. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu, made suggestions and was quite personable. Food was, as always, delicious. Of course I ordered my favorite, the fried oysters. They never disappoint!

I LOVE this restaurant. I come from Raleigh to eat here. You will not be disappointed. It’s simple food done pretty simple but there is a twist. I make fried corn but it’s not like theirs. I make Brussels sprouts with bacon that are good but theirs is divine. Don’t get me started on their Mac and cheese. It’s simple but there is wood fired magic in this food. Just go. And DO NOT miss the pickled local vegetable relish plate. Eat it while you peruse the menu. You’ll be back I guarantee.

Service was great, I was disappointed they didn't have some of the appetizer options they've had in the past. Overall good food the side options are generous portions so great to share. Our waiter was very attentive as was the rest of the staff. We will be back soon.

Amazing food and amazing service. Or waiter Nate and Mike the manager went above and beyond. I was dining with my fiancé on a busy evening with lots of large parties. Usually two people at a small table get less attention but we were treated so well by the staff. The food is out of this world, our favorite meal so far in uptown!

So good to see this favorite back in Uptown. The perfect evening when paired with an event at the Blumenthal. Excellent service and cuisine under the watchful eyes of hands on management who pretty well drop by each table. Our Hunter this trip was a man named Hunter who went to great lengths to extend every possible courtesy. Hats off!

We had a party of 6 for an early dinner before a football game at Bank of America stadium. Our service and food were amazing! Their Brussels Sprouts, Roasted Chicken Pizza, and Pepperoni Shrimp Goat Cheese pizza were so good and portions were more than ample! Definitely recommend! They genuinely treated us like a valued customer!

I was staying over in Charlotte after visiting the Van Gogh exhibit. I selected Rooster's Wood Fired Kitchen based on location and some online ratings. I was not disappointed! My boneless short rib was so tender it fell apart. My friend had the flank steak and it was perfect. We shared macaroni and cheese and a special succotash for sides. A bottle of OPP Pinot Noir paired perfectly with our meal. Our server Nate was professional and personable. On future stays in Charlotte, I will plan to return. Fantastic meal!

The food here was amazing! I loved the Brussels sprouts and Mac n cheese. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and easy to talk to. The restaurant seemed full but all the food came in a timely manner. One of the managers stopped by the table and chatted with us for a while. He was very pleasant to talk to and was sincere in asking how our dining experience was. At the end of the dinner the server offered dessert on him, which was a very nice unexpected touch. Overall a great restaurant and experience!

Absolutely would recommend Rooster's Uptown! All the staff treated us like special guests into their home. The manager and others went out of their way to make sure we were seated together (a party of 8). We originally had two tables but the manager and staff were able to figure out a way to make it happen so all of us could be at the same table with plenty of room to spare! And the food - very generous and delicious portions. Sharing was the word of the evening.

We were SO GLAD to be back at our favorite Charlotte restaurant. First closed due to a fire, and then COVID, Rooster's Uptown is reopened and you'll find your favorite staff and menu items are still there and still great. Our go-to order is the flank steak with each of us ordering a different side to share--au gratin potatoes, beets and last night the brussels sprouts (all sides are enough for 3 people). Can't wait for another event in Charlotte that provides us the opportunity to once again dine at Rooster's Uptown!
