About the restaurant
North Carolina chef and restaurateur, Jim Noble founded Rooster’s: A Noble Grille with the intention of being relevant without being trendy and to impress without being pretentious. That commitment has carried us through two decades and continues to lead us on today.

Knowing that simple food is harder to execute given there is nowhere to hide the flaws, we go to great lengths to source quality ingredients from local farmers and purveyors. We then take all the time necessary to develop their flavors —using both European and modern techniques—always working from scratch.

Our menu features tried and true staples like our spit­-roasted chicken cooked over open fire as well as progressive daily​ specials and elevated Small Plates featuring Executive Chef Brad Pennell. At Rooster’s, you’ll always find something new served with an honest commitment and consistently warm care.

From the moment that we walked up to the counter, the staff was extremely attentive and kind. The food was very well prepared using farm fresh ingredients. The menu listed wine paring(s) for each food offering. The wine was of course fabulous (we enjoy Jo Lo wines year 'round). After lunch, they let us take a glass of wine outside to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We would have sat outside from the outset but the weather forecast was not favorable at the time we made our reservation. All in all, a fantastic afternoon!

Went here for my fiancé’s birthday and it was lovely. We were seated right away and received quick service from a very helpful and friendly server. The food was amazing (we ordered the salmon and famous onion soup). Would definitely go back and would love to try dining outside when the weather is nice because it’s so cute out there! Fairy lights and all.

Harrison and Brian are murdering the Winston-Salem food scene! By far one of the best meals I've had in a long time. The grilled octopus was quite tasty, very well thought out, and executed. My friend and I shared a grilled Caesar salad, also fire. The picanha steak was perfectly cooked and very well seasoned. I definitely picked up Indian Or Moroccan vibes off of it, and the chimichurri tied it all together perfectly. I had to accompany this with some crispy frites. Legitimately some of the best fries I've ever put into my mouth. But nothing prepared me for the decadent flourless chocolate torte with homemade strawberry ice cream. It was under sauced with what appeared to be a tart strawberry coulis and sprinkled with crunchy cocoa nibs. (Thanks, seriously) I would like to give the experience 5 stars. Keep up the good work!

My two friends sat on the covered patio out front and it was a really relaxed and beautiful setting. Our server was attentive but we also had the benefit of having their “wine expert” come over to help with the two bottles of wine that we ordered. The service overall was exceptional. Our bruschetta appetizer was delicious. I had the Shrimp primavera and it was really wonderful. Great flavor and very creamy. Both of my friends got the Steak Frites which were both cooked perfectly and my friends enjoyed them as well. There was enough to take some home. I got the 1/2 Chicken to bring home to my husband and he enjoyed that along with some of the steak. Great experience all around

My husband and I were at Graylyn Estates for our anniversary. Our reservation was for 6pm, but when we arrived, the staff wasn't quite prepared. This was a minor detail because the staff were very friendly and the food was very good. We were even served a Creme Brulee on the house for our anniversary. I would gladly recommend Graylyn Estates for dinner.
