Gastro Pub
The Cellar at Duckworth’s combines gastropub fare from our chef-driven menu, with a tap list of specialty and rare beers served at appropriate temperatures to their styles, and signature cocktails that are hand crafted to order by our mixologists. Inspired by an era of time that’s long past, the underground space built originally in 1912, naturally has a speakeasy, prohibition-era feel with its original brick walls and exposed ceiling joists. Even our attentive staff dresses the part from the era. We hope to take you back in time for a bit while enjoying good food and drink with friends and family.

    Jena is the best! She was very knowledgeable about the menu and her recommendations were perfect. We order the burrata saldad, truffled fries, mac and cheese and a Tomahawk steak. Everything was delicious, but the Tomahawk was kind of small for the price. Cocktails are well balanced and delicious. I am not a sweets lover but the Nutella Cheesecake was amazing, so smooth.

    The evening started off pretty bad, but once Jessica took over as our server, things changed completely. Jessica, and those that supported her, took very good care of us!! The food was delicious. What the survey called "energetic" with regard to noise level, we call very loud and annoying. It was difficult for us to communicate across the table!! We will not recommend Duckworth's Cellar to others unless they are looking for the bar scene because of the noise. It's just not conducive to an enjoyable dinner with friends.

    We found this restaurant to be amazing on all levels, we had a server named Jessica and she was so knowledgeable on both the menu and the interesting history of the building. She made excellent recommendations for food and helped us narrow down their extensive craft made drink selections to something each of us enjoyed. She was amazingly attentive and so bright and personable, just an all around exceptional server which makes the experience of dining here so special. The ribeye is something truly special and we ordered the brussel sprouts which were unbelievably tasty and truffle fries were a hit too. If you find yourself in downtown Charlotte this is a must visit restaurant. It feels like you have gone back in time and you will have an excellent meal at a perfectly reasonable price point for such a great experience.

    Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your server Jessica - she is a real gem! We hope to serve you again soon.

    Very cool subterranean spot in uptown Charlotte. Focus is on steaks but many other interesting choices on menu. My halibut special may be the best halibut I've ever had, very softly cooked (poached?) and garnished w/ 2 scallops, among other nice touches. I love char-grilled oysters and always like seeing them on menus. Odd that they serve 5 instead of 6, but they were excellent. Very long draft beer and specialty cocktail list. Look forward to a return visit.

    I had a VERY good experience at this restaurant with my boyfriend. Good service. Food came out piping hot and we loved that! We also did not wait long for anything. Him and I had burgers and truffle fries for our entrees. So full of flavor! We had a charcuterie board for our appetizer (which was very skimpy), but still tasty. I would not order it again, as it was $22, and looked as if it cost half that to make. There was not much food on it at all. Drinks were really good, and the total for everything was $100. I highly recommend. Atmosphere was nice too. Love the speakeasy feel.

    I’ve been to The Cellar a few times now and I love the atmosphere! Prohibition style cellar with great food and cocktails. Our server was super nice and very helpful recommending drinks that fit our likes. We shared the Tomahawk ribeye which was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing! This was our early valentines dinner so thank you for making it awesome for us!

    Service was great and the ambience was nice. The food was sadly not very special or worth coming back for. The cheese board had three slices of baguette with a teaspoon of jam. The desserts were hardly edible. We were disappointed as we had such high hopes.

    This was our first visit to The Cellar and it won’t be our last. Everything was great, from the look and feel of an old time speakeasy in a cellar, to the incredible drinks, and delicious food. We decided to go with small plate/taps style so we could get a sample of different foods and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent. Had a few different drinks, thanks to our server, Julie’s, recommendations….outstanding. We arrived around 4 and by 5 it was getting busy. Surely a place to visit when in Charlotte. Will be back soon.

    Fantastic food and excellent service! The Cellar used to be a SpeakEasy during prohibition era and the restaurant resembles that period. Noise level was not bad for the intimate space. Prices were elevated but acceptable for the high level of service and high quality and portion size of food! DEFINITELY go here, we will be returning!!!

    The quality of the food and drinks is one of the best in UPtown Charlotte. The bartender Mark's recommendations were perfect. Everyone from the hosts to the servers were well versed in the menu and willingness to help the guests. My Ribeye steak is perhaps one of the best that I have ever had.

    Atmosphere and feeling of speakeasy was so unique and fun. We enjoyed our evening. Our server was attentive, and even took us on a little tour of the wine/beer cellar. We used this evening as an early Valentines Day night, along with a special night celebrating the 60th anniversary weekend release of one if my wife’s favorite musicals. It all paired perfectly. We enjoyed multiple small plates, and created our own charcuterie board. So much fun!

    We have a very nice date night here! I recommend the smokey bourbon drink (I can’t remember what it is called in the menu). They have plenty of other drink options and an extensive wine list. We started with the dumplings, which were amazing! We also ordered the fish special (grouper) and the dry-aged steak. Both were very good! A+ for ambiance, too! It felt like we were in a speakeasy.
