I’m upset about the roast missing from the menu, the new sweet potatoes could be seasoned and prepared better, the strawberry lemonade was missing the strawberries. (I think they have resorted to using a strawberry gel/syrup now instead of real strawberries like they used to). Definitely missing the bbq sauce for the fried chicken. Cream corn and cabbage needs to be added back to the menu, as well as the flounder. Other than that everything else was A-1. King’s Kitchen has been my favorite restaurant to attend for events when visiting Charlotte as well as my number one recommendation when asked where would I eat. The menu changes have hurt.

The shrimp and grits were wonderful -- even if a little spicier than I was expecting-- and the cheeseburger satisfied my daughter's craving. The noise level felt a little louder than "energetic" at times but not enough to make conversation impossible. Will definitely be back!

None of the staff told us we could reserve a table on open table. We actually went to another restaurant and looked on open table ourselves and saw they had a reservation open in the next 20mins. So we reserved the table and went back. It would have been so much easier if the staff had directed us to make a reservation from the beginning. I feel like y’all lose a lot of money by not directing customers to the site and telling them it would be a 2-3 hour wait for the next available table when there was open reservation slots.

Our waitress was lovely, very sweet and accommodating. The chicken sandwich was really good though the bun was cold. The grilled catfish was delicious. The fried chicken was authentic southern prepared. They brought my daughter a complementary banana pudding for dessert that was amazing.

Computer difficulties made it hard to get seated and again to check out, but the food, wine and service were superb! I can’t wait to go back when we’re not rushed for time. Such a great concept and perfectly executed!

The biscuits - honestly, I would go there and just eat the biscuits for a whole meal if that wasn’t weird. The other food we ordered was delicious and exciting to eat. The location is great and every detail in the decor is well planned and executed, just like the menu. I’m not from Charlotte, but will definitely come again the next time I’m in town.

Especially given it was a Monday night, felt it would’ve been quick and 1:1 service. However, it’s worth noting the food is what’s mostly driving my mid star review- it was outstanding. But it is very hard to hear in the restaurant, we were basically screaming at one another to converse. It also took 15 minutes for our server to ask for drinks and another 15 minutes to simply give us water. We only saw her three times our entire stay. If you’re in a hurry maybe go somewhere else but wouldn’t eliminate going back another time as our experience could’ve been a one off.

My husband and do not eat meat and there were several options for us including amazing sides. We both had the grilled catfish which neither of us had eaten before. It was amazing. The right amount of smoke and char from the grill. It was served with a spicy sauce that really enhanced the mildness of the fish. The sides were delicious: mashed potatoes and cream gravy, sweet potatoes with pecan syrup, and rapini sautéed with garlic and dusted with Parmesan. Finally, the bread basket was delicious. Cornbread and biscuits made like Grandma was served with pecan butter and fig butter. I would definitely visit again.

All else was cross contaminated. The manager helped us and oversaw our order with the chief - he was very nice, understanding, and helpful. We had expected other menu items - especially veg's to be available -- as we reviewed the menu prior to making a reservation.
