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.

    The Cellar was noticeably louder on this occasion. I've been several times and it's usually a quieter space so the noise level was a little annoying. Cocktail prices are way too high, even for uptown Charlotte. Food and service was great.

    Great selection of craft cocktails although only enjoyed one of the four we sampled, Vieux Carre. Oysters were solid but and although liked the small plate selection I felt like the execution was poor, everything seemed over flavored, eg too sweet (waffle cones) or too much cumin (couldn’t taste tuna in the tartare) service was good although felt waiter was talking down to us which got annoying. Nevermind physically having to move table to squeeze in. 180 bucks for two out the door with a few cocktails and small plates so value was not there. Cool vibes in the place overall but it was the third time I’ve been there since it opened years back. Keep saying I won’t go back but find myself there anyway. Will be a while before I do this again

    Went here for my boyfriend’s 30th. We loved it. The ambience was romantic, it smelled lovely of smokey mixed drinks and was very cozy being it was cold outside! We both ordered a drink and we enjoyed them! We split a tomahawk steak, truffle Mac and dumplings. All was seasoned very well and the meat was cooked to perfection with a pink center and beautiful charred crust on the outside. Our waitress was friendly and had great recommendations! The only con was that it was a bit loud but it’s a tiny basement and it was packed so we got over it quickly. Highly recommend for a special dinner!

    It was our second time here and we enjoyed our experience. The value of the quality of food for the price is outstanding. Have always had superb service. It does get quite loud down there. We had the burrata salad, smoked salmon flatbread, and pork steam buns. The salad was delicious. The steam buns we had on our first visit, enjoyed them both times. The second time we were not given as much of the sauce on the side, which makes a big difference when eating such a big bun. The flatbread was good, but there was very little salmon on the flatbread. It was my boyfriend’s birthday yesterday and he wanted to spend the evening at Duckworth’s. I was surprised that Duckworth’s doesn’t do anything for special occasions. I don’t think it needs to be anything big, as I understand things have to be cost-effective. But a small macaron for dessert or an amuse-bouche would go a long way.

    Took my gal here for her birthday. To start, we put on the reservation that it was her birthday. I wasn’t expecting them to go all out, but every table had a lit candle except for ours. Wish we could’ve at least gotten the bare minimum for her birthday celebration. We started off with the cocktails our server recommended, and they were not good. We didn’t drink them and he removed them from our bill. He kept saying he was going to let us sip our drinks before we ordered, so by the time we were able to order our appetizer, it had already been 40 minutes since we sat down. We were extremely hungry because it was a late reservation. We ordered the short rib dumplings and they were burnt. The table next to us got some as well. Theirs were a perfect golden brown and ours were black. But we were so hungry at that point we ate them anyway. We wanted to go for the steaks but they only came with an arugula salad. Everything was so bad up to that point, so we didn’t want to risk it for a pricey steak that doesn’t really come with any good sides. We went with the truffle Mac and cheese and the cellar burger. The bacon on the burger was burnt and the burger overall was unimpressive. The truffle Mac was literally the only thing that was good. Even the water was bad. It was unfiltered and chalky. We were super disappointed and felt like we wasted our money. Only ate most of what we ordered because we were so hungry and it was so late. Definitely won’t be back.

    We were seated next to a table of loud voices which on top of the other loud noise in the restaurant had us yelling at each other to be heard. There were empty tables in other areas! I would not want to be there when the room was full. The veal dish had the chewiest veal I've ever had. The sauce was tasty and the pasta was just enough. Wine choices were good. We will not go back since we enjoy talking to one another while we dine.

    Our 5th time here and unfortunately it was not the best. VERY loud and a fair bit of smoke from the infused craft cocktails. One person in our party has a sensitive nose and it was a bit much for her. I ordered the Filet Mignon and while it was cooked to perfection at medium well, there was so much salt and pepper that it overwhelmed the flavor of the steak. I sent it back (which I never do) and they promptly brought me another one - unfortunately it was only slightly better. My wife ordered the Grilled Shrimp and Old Mill Cheddar Grits. The Heritage Farms Chorizo that comes with it was not a good flavor combination - it tasted like Hormel Chili sauce. Great cocktails and good bourbon selection. We will give them another try since this was the first time we went away disappointed.

    We waited for at least 10-15 minutes before a server made an initial greeting to us after sitting down. Informed our sever about a no pork, no beef preference and he made note of it. Out macaroni and cheese came out with ham in it despite our requests. Our server caught it AFTER we were already eating it so he took it back to the kitchen and bright out a new order that had no ham. Although our dietary preferences are important, luckily they aren’t allergies as our experience would have led to a medical emergency.
