STIR is the perfect restaurant to enjoy a night out, host clients, or sip a craft cocktail over a dozen oysters. Located in South End, the restaurant is an open-air concept with a large, heated outdoor patio. We are open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.

Our cold bar and kitchen offers fresh oysters from North Carolina and beyond, traditional Mexican and Peruvian ceviche, and classic entrees and specials, all prepared from scratch.

STIR is famous for craft cocktails. We freeze and carve 300-pound blocks of artisanal ice in-house, age certain cocktails in oak barrels for richer flavors, and place others on draft for crispness and carbonation. The result: categorically elevated cocktails. Our passion for fine spirits also compels us to find and share rare bottles, many of which are extremely difficult to procure.

We welcome Charlotte to enjoy our unmatched cocktails, fresh seafood, and classic dishes in an atmosphere of genuine hospitality.

    Service was very good overall, food was average. The steakhouse burger was underwhelming, however the asparagus side was great. The Shrimp Louie salad had an average amount of shrimp, however the deviled eggs turned out to be deviled egg. Then the check. A burger, salad, a Burboun, and a glass of wine. $99.00 with gratuity and tax.

    Everything was good except the entrees. The ambiance is great, cocktails spot on, but the food was honestly lack luster and didn’t taste “chef level” at all. I will say the oysters, crab bisque and matcha cheesecake, were great. So basically stick to drinks, apps and dessert and you’ll be fine.

    Highly disappointed in the food. The garnish on top of the fried green tomatoes was excessive, the tomatoes were flavorless. The cheeseburger egg rolls taste like it was mixed with that old school lump government cheese, the sauce is what made it edible. Alone it's a disaster. The steak in my bowl was past well done, I do not eat well done steak anyway and this steak was leather. Unfortunately I did not finish my food. My friends salmon was overcooked as well. The mule was a cup of ice, the waitress explained it's a common complaint but that everything is measured out 2oz. My thoughts are if it's measured out appropriately then what is up with all of the ice and if it's a common complaint, why continue to serve the drink in that manner??? Overall I would not return to the Charlotte location, I do intend to try the one in Dallas and compare. Valentine's Day Dinner definitely a bust!

    Had the Shrimp Louie salad and shrimp/crab raviolis. Both were very nice. Drinks are fairly pricey if you go off of their house brand selections. Char grilled oysters were amazing but needed some soft, crusty bread to mop up the butter sauce left in the shell. Overall, we’ll be back to try other menu items.

    We ordered the steak special, a peppercorn crusted ribeye and it was overcooked and under flavored. The cold bar platter with oysters, shrimp and tuna was excellent but the entree left much to be desired. Even the potatoes were subpar.

    This was my first time going to Stir, and I went for brunch on a Sunday. I made a reservation the night before and my table was ready 30 minutes earlier! Once my wife and I got to Stir, we were seated immediately. The atmosphere was great, not too loud or cramped. The food was hot and had great flavor. I ordered the country breakfast and was pleased with everything that it comes with. My wife got the breakfast sandwich which had great flavor. Each entree comes with a bunch plate which is a small side of chicken salad with pita bread, mixed fresh fruit, and coffee cake. I wanted to try their coffee, but they were out. Overall I would say that all the food was great and worth the price. I also ordered the old fashion which was very strong and somewhat sweeter than typical ones. I will definitely be back for brunch and to try lunch and dinner.

    The food was very good. We went on restaurant week, so the value was more during this time. Very noisy atmosphere, but it was a cool place. Our server was extremely nice, however lacked etiquette and experience. We were literally halfway into our appetizers when she brought our main meal and then brought our dessert before we were finished our entrées. Two bites into our dessert, She asked if we wanted our check. Nothing more than I hate than having some, we’re not finished with the previous course, and then staring at dishes piling on our table because nobody removed them

Corbin was an excellent server and offered since great suggestions!! We might’ve overdone it on the select oysters…but we don’t regret it one bit!! That breakfast sandwich far exceeded our expectations!! We’ll definitely be back!

    IDK why but they gave us the table right next to the kitchen door(even though the restaurant was pretty empty since it was a bit early) so it was hard to hear. So we asked if we could move to a table close by, which they were hesitant about but eventually allowed us to. But it wasn't just us, they made other groups sit near the kitchen too..I mean it would be easier for the server but not the best move. We had the queen's feast course menu (which the server thought was no longer available even though it was available till the weekend&we went on friday), and it was pretty good (flavor&quantity-wise) for the discounted price!

    It was a positive dining experience with great service, food and atmosphere. The only thing that kept it from 5 stars was the very (and I mean very) small cocktails. I sent one back because it only filled 1/3rd of a martini glass and the replacement was just as small. I guess I can try and be sympathetic to rising costs but with the mark up on alcohol, it’s really unnecessary. Other than that, the experience was good.

    Great food and environment. Appetizer and dinner menu is diverse and full of tasty options- prices were a pleasant surprise. Only downside was the drinks. Most had barely a splash in the glass with a huge chunk of ice. Definitely not value for the money.

    The oyster appetizer and the matcha cake were great! The steak was a bit overcooked in the steak frites dish but the crispy mahi bowl was amazing (a little spicy so take note if you don’t like spice!). We did have to wait 30 minutes even with a reservation which was unfortunate but they can’t make people leave as soon as they finish so we didn’t blame stir!

    Definitely will come back again, food and service exceeded my expectations. We were late to our reservation and they moved it 30 mins no issues and seated us when we got there. The server was super attentive and had a great attitude. We did have to evacuate bc something was going on with the kitchen fire alarm, we never found out if there was a fire or not.

    The staff is the best thing about STIR. We had reservations but they were busy. So there was a wait but that happens. The food is just lack luster. We did try it during Queens Feast so maybe that is the problem? I got the Mahi Bowl and it tasted like one of the Lean Cuisine frozen meals. The sweet and sour chicken one to be exact. There was barely any pieces of fish and what was there was mostly fried breading. My wife had the chicken piccata that was just ok. It was way better than mine but that doesn’t say much. They were out of the Spicy Tuna bites which happens. The drinks were good but with so many other choices nearby it’s just not worth it if the food isn’t very good. I give them the extra star for the staff. They were nice and pleasant.

    The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was good, although perhaps a bit overpriced. The cocktails were also a bit overpriced for the quality and amount. I had the Halibut and it was overcooked, but the dish was still delicious.

    The oysters were fantastic but they brought the main entree and appetizers at the same time. By the time we were ready for the main it was cold. They were very accommodating and provided us with a fresh meal. The problem was the amount of salt was extreme. We didn't want to make a fuss but couldn't eat most of our meal. We just decided to pay the bill and write it off as an experience. We don't think we would return.
