Overall I really like the restaurant, the customer service was great from the from door to the waiter. Minus the rocks, picnic tables, heat, and bugs the outside part of the restaurant was nice. I wasn't able to explore the inside, but from what I could see it looked nice as well and was cool. The food and drinks were refreshing and tasty with a spin on it (which I quite enjoyed). I would like to definitely visit again where I could possibly catch some entertainment or at least try out the igloo feature or just dining under the lights outside. The restaurant is in a great vibrant location minus the parking.

This was my first time to The Goodyear House . The server was very nice but our food took one hour to arrive . The living room ( where we were seated ) was approximately half seated and was very noisy ! The noise was so loud that it actually gave me a headache . The food had a heavy smoked taste that was not mentioned on the menu . The server mentioned that the kitchen was one person short but I’m not sure that this was the reason for the timeliness.

Celebrating our anniversary there was great. The food was amazing - try the Corn Curls, you will love them, as well as the Smoked Cashew Mac. We had the Trout and the Pork belly also - amazing. Topped it off with Key Lime Pie. Our waiter, Logan, was perfect - answered questions and kept on top of things. This is an amazing place - so comfortable and relaxed and unique. GO...

We sampled the wedge salad (very nice), egg salad toast (egg salad good/toast impossible to cut), fried chicken sandwich (just so-so) and the goopy burger( terrible-very small and horribly overcooked/crusty). Fries were barely warm and had some weird coating.

The service was wonderful and the venue beautiful, but don't think we will try again.

Ours was a party of four, my wife and I were first time diners. The food was average, nothing special. All of the items were overpriced and there was no way to opt out of fries with my entrée except to buy another side at the full price of $10.95. The drinks were poor at best. Negronis and vodka gimlets are not difficult to make but were just not very good. And, the gimlets were ordered up but were served on the rocks. This strikes me as a trendy place with the hipster crowd but not a quality dining experience in my mind. I do not plan to return.

We were a party of three who wished to sit inside due to the heat. Our table was near a larger party and they were so extremely loud that we couldn’t hear ourselves talk, so we asked to move tables. Once settled, the volume was better - although the acoustics still favored the large party. The menu was plentiful, each of us found something delicious to order: steamed pork belly, the goopy burger, and the green monster sammie. Food came out hot and delicious! Our waters remained filled and the staff was pleasant. Overall, the experience was very enjoyable!

Really enjoyed my dinner and the atmosphere is very inviting very nice outdoor space. Service a little slow but my server was waiting on many tables I can’t fault that. She explained the menu well and made accommodations for diet allergies which I appreciated. Overall a great experience I would definitely come back.

My favorite restaurant for drinks and outdoor dining!! We had the devilish toast, the hummus and veggies, vegan mac and cheese and the burger. This was the second trip to the Goodyear House. On our first visit, my husband got the burger and thought it was "fine". He decided to give it another shot and he said it was absolutely better than the first time. We loved each of the dishes. He had a few beers and I had the Matinee (tequila, pineapple, jalapeno, lime and ginger beer.) I like spicy but not necessarily in my drinks, so I was a little unsure of it but it wasn't spicy at all. Maybe just a tiniest hint of flavor from the jalapeno but no spice. It was DELICIOUS!!! I absolutely love TGH's cocktails. There were no drink specials on Thursday but we have been on a Wednesday when there was half price Rose and Frose drinks.

The service here was excellent; our server was helpful and attentive without being intrusive.
I had the trout, which I thought was quite good, and one person in our group had the pork belly, which he also enjoyed. The other two people in our group had trouble finding items on the menu that appealed to them, but they tried various things, and did not leave hungry.

Neat space in Noda with plenty of indoor and outdoor dining options. We were seated inside. Very noisy and slow service -- Food ok -- several upcharges for simple requests. Maybe they were short staffed but after drinks were delivered didn't see waiter again, another waiter brought out apps. We had no silver or napkins, no waiter to be found -- had to take matters in our own hands and take settings from another table set for diners. Entrees were brought by another server and noone ever returned to ask if all was ok until we were practically done. A little disappointing. Parking in NODA is near impossible.

After seeing that this was the place to eat snd experience, was a big let down. First was seated inside and the noise was very loud so asked to be seated outside and was graciously seated outside at a picnic table. The server was doing her best but had too many tables. Ordered pinot Grigio which they were out if and then chardonnay that they were out of. Settled on cava Food was just okay. Had shrimp , squash , hamburger and trout. All were nothing special. For a $100 meal was very disappointed.

Overall great experience. Just know indoor seating is basically same as outside seating because the tables are next to open doors. It will be hot inside if. It dressed appropriately.
They only had one Italian white by the glass. Unfortunately, they ran out of the wine and could not offer another wine by the glass.
The food is tapas style and exceptional. However, staff needs to be trained how to serve tapa style food. Everything came out at once leaving some foods cold and the salad warm.
Chris Coleman has great restaurant, but lacking in the details to make it one of the best in Charlotte. I hope in time the details will improve and elevate this restaurant to one of the very best. I will definitely try it again!

Good food but disappointed they ran out of avacado and couldn’t make their green monster sammie which is why we went there. Wouldn’t think avacado would be difficult to keep in stock for lunch

Great ambience. Decent drinks. Some food options are good. Would recommend the cashew Mac. The goopy burger is the exact same recipe as a Big Mac, it’s not bad but you could just pick one up off the dollar menu before and have the same culinary experience. Will probably go back for drinks/ambience but not in my top ten.

The chicken on our salad was still raw in the middle, the Mac which is normally delicious was so dry we couldn’t eat it. The server was so sweet but she got sat 2 large parties at once so we weren’t even able to tell her about our food

The food was excellent and the restaurant itself is very cool. The large outdoor area is super festive and relaxing. We happened to get a server that was just awful. If it were not for that I would have given 5 stars overall.

Overall, the food was wonderful, but by all means save room for dessert. That was spectacular. Not impressed by picnic tables with wooden benches in the outdoor area. Our table was overlooking an electrical service box after we moved from one with a view of the smoker and a garden hose. Also, our table for 5 was served one cloverleaf roll before the food came. Would it have killed them to serve 5 rolls?

For prices, the food was okay but nothing that qualified as over 20 dollars per entree. I wasn’t impressed with the shrimp app that our waitress raved about. The ambiance was the best thing about this place. I would definitely go back for a pre dinner drink.
