STIR is the perfect restaurant to enjoy a night out, host clients, or sip a craft cocktail over a dozen oysters. Located in North Hills, 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 is a categorically elevated cocktail. Our passion for fine spirits also compels us to find and share rare bottles, many of which are extremely difficult to procure.

We welcome Raleigh to enjoy our unmatched cocktails, fresh seafood from the cold bar, and classic dishes in an atmosphere of genuine hospitality.

    I was pretty excited to come with my girlfriends and I checked the night before for reservations. Seeing that they were abundantly available I did not make one and thought we’d be spontaneous and wing it. Big mistake. Apparently you can’t come into this restaurant as a walk in before 7:30. This was told to us quite rudely with no other offer extended. Immediately I got on Open Table and saw I could make a reservation for my party every 15 mins for the rest of the night, saving us from the hour and half wait they were trying to sell us as walk ins. While the food was adequate and the drinks sufficed, the overall customer service experience left us wanting and we will be taking our girls night to a different restaurant next time.

    The ambiance was great and so was the service. The drink menu is incredible but that said, the bar was extremely slow and they didn’t have the liquor I ordered with my drink. The whiskey bramble was advertised as a twist on an old fashioned and while it was tasty, it is not similar to an old fashioned in any way. Overall the restaurant was disappointing, the samosas were quite tasty but the steak frites was average. They did comp my drink after it took 45 minutes to come to the table. All in all, disappointing…

    We had a great experience stopping in for brunch before a long drive back to NY. The server was extremely friendly and attentive, the food was really good (biscuits and gravy, deviled eggs, oysters, and crab eggs benedict). Before ordering oysters, they offered a couple of free samples to help our decision. Great experience and would happily return.

    Servers and Mgr. having a gab fest while rolling silverware therefore not attentive to patrons at 5 pm. Hostess had a chip on her shoulder. Food came to the table cold. Not worth haggling over just paid bill and left. Too bad had enjoyed in past… group rating “x”.

    Delicious food and amazing drinks, and the service was great. The seafood was very good, and for those who don't like seafood, the chicken piccata was delicious as well. It was a little noisy, but that's the only complaint. I will definitely be going back.

    I frequent this location and yesterday’s experience was not the best. The hostess staff was kind of rude despite us having a reservation. The service was subpar and when the food came out, no one knew who was supposed to get what nor did they care. I asked the person who brought out our food which scrambled egg is this since our whole table got eggs and she looked at me and said “I don’t know ask your server” and walked off. Although this is minuscule, it could’ve been a bigger issue if one of us had an allergy. Needless to say, it’ll probably be a while before I go back.

    Made reservation for table for two because STIR doesn't permit solo diners to reserve a table -- but that's a whole other issue that deserves far more space than this review allows. I sat at the bar and asked the bartender for an oyster menu. She kept directing me to somewhere in the back of the restaurant where the oysters of the day are posted. First, please speak up and be clear about what is "back there" that you expect me to go find so I can determine which oysters I want. Second, I'm not going to meander through the crowd to search for a list of oysters of the day, and then find my way back to the bar to give you my order. Restaurant management should make it easier for diners to order. I waited 12 minutes for the bartender to even acknowledge me. I had to ask twice for my second glass of wine. The bartender finally went "back there" to find out which oysters are available and to avoid having to listen to her mumble through the list, I just told her to give me a half-dozen of the ones she recited first. Long story short: I'll never go back to STIR. Too much trouble and a waste of my time. And the oysters were not good.

    The service was poor, food was cold and over cooked. This was my second visit. My first visit was the same experience but I thought maybe it was due to a busy Friday night. My second visit was on a Sunday night which was slower but nothing changed In service or food. I won’t be back. After paying over $200 for 2 people both visits, I’m done.

    The food was great! Service was slow. It was OK since we had plenty of time. The focus for Stir is their custom cocktails with artisan ice, but the first drink my wife ordered was out of stock? We ordered an appetizer to split, Spicy Chicken Samosas - chopped chicken & peppers wrapped in dough and deep fried, with a sweet & spicy dipping sauce. Tasted great! We didn't realize they would be so big - it came with 4, and we only ate 1 each, so we took the other two as leftovers. I had the grilled salmon, served on a bed of farro (a grain, served like rice), topped with dill sauce and pickled red onions. The menu says roasted vegetables, and I expected a pile of veggies on the side, but it was really small bits of cut up veggies around the edge of the grain. Great flavors! and filling enough. My wife had the Sesame Steak Bowl - a big bowl with a tall rice cake in the middle topped with fried egg, with all the other things (steak strips, edamame, kale, etc) in little piles around it. I didn't try it, but she said it was great.

    the food was okay. the potatoes were hard, the grits were a little different than normal. the eggs needed more flavor. the scenery was great and the vibe brunch was good. the mimosa was good but they couldve given more in the wine glass.

    First time visiting from about 45 minutes away in another county. The servers couldn’t have been nicer and held a table for us when traffic made us late for our reservation. The ceviche was authentic Peruvian style, excellent flavor, as were the tuna bites and other dishes we tried. Food was served very timely. Downside was the outdoor seating is adjacent to a loading dock area where there was a strong smell of garbage and they didn’t have the item I wanted on the cocktail menu. The cocktail suggested as an alternative came out warm and did not taste very good. We would definitely go back again on the strength of the food and service but would sit inside rather than on the porch.

    The food I ordered was too salty n had too much sauce. I had to dump the sauce to another plate. The rice cake was not good and tasted like old rice and cold. I would not order that again .. but I am willing to try other dish if I go back to the restaurant again. I sat next to the kitchen … so much noise from it. Next time I will sit outside or the high table

    Good was very good, but not knock me off my feet. Wait time for the waitress to check on us was long, but unsure how many tables he had. It was not a jam packed night though. I would visit again to see if the experience is the same/worse/better.
