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.

Delicious cocktails, superb service. We sat at the bar and enjoyed every minute of the experience. The sea bass and grouper were on point!

The food was fabulous and the restaurant has a really eclectic vibe. Our server Chrissy was very personable and helpful with both food and drink choices. The charcuterie board was fantastic! We will definitely go back!

Anniversary - seats were very uncomfortable. We commented when we were first seated, but nothing was done about it. Condescending comments were made about our drink choices.

We LOVED our waiter Daren who works Fridays and Saturdays. Literally felt like we had the best waiter in the room. The truffle Mac and cheese is a MUST. Overall so wonderful.

Very interesting place & great ambience and service! The food was tasty, but I've never seen oysters as an order of 5...always half a dozen or a dozen. The halibut we ordered seemed to have been sliced in half horizontally (perhaps to make more portions - ?), but it was still good. I would definitely go back!

Great food and ambience. Our server started out attentive but became less and less so throughout the night until he completely disappeared by the end of the night. We spent 2 hours here and got a bunch of small plates and cocktails.

Our service was outstanding, we had a young lady named Bri, she interacted with the table which I like that in a server. She was outstanding. Great recommendations and knew the menu to a tee.. When I return this is who I will be asking for in the future. This is a one of a kind place if you haven’t been everyone should go. Food was outstanding.

We are regulars, always bring out of town guests. We felt comfortable with all the measures in place regarding COVID-19. Tables spaced out, screens between bar seating. Everyone masked. Hand sanitizer at the hostess stand and we were given wipes.
We always love the great craft cocktails, and never had a menu item we didn’t enjoy. The staggered pace of delivering all dishes fresh is great for sharing and for a fun interactive evening. Food is interesting, great regular staples like truffle Mac n cheese, always something new for specials. Great charcuterie selections.

Best food and drink in Charlotte. Table shared Brussels, Tuna Poke, Truffle fries, Filet, Risotto w/ scallops, Potstickers. Do NOT recommend the potstickers...way too gamey. Risotto was dry but everything else was to die for. Softest filet I've ever had. I would go back morning noon and night for the truffle fries.

This is a must in downtown Charlotte. Speakeasy ambiance, fantastic craft cocktails, unbeatable craft beer selection and excellent food. The service is excellent if a bit too wordy and intrusive.

I’ve been here many times and it’s always amazing. All the food is delicious, with good portions so it really makes it worth it. The prohibition theme is also really well done and makes it an even better experience.

My only two complaints is that is does tend to get a bit warm. When you’re dining on fairly heavy food, it does make it uncomfortable. Also, having been there a good amount, it is frustrating when they ask if you’ve been there, and you respond “Yes, lots!” that they still give the whole spiel about the atmosphere and how they cook the steaks and make the cocktails. I’m sure they are required regardless, but it’s tedious and drawn out when you know the deal and just want to get one of those tasty cocktails started! Safe to say if we’ve been there before and you know it, just skip the rundown.

Regardless, it’s some of the best food ever and I’ll always come back!

Everything was outstanding! Bobby Sunshine was our server. He and the manager were amazing! The only negative that I could mention would be that the floors were very slippery.

Came down from Long Island to spend an extended weekend with my niece. Thought a 5:00 reservation on a Saturday would be subdued, but we were happy to see so many of the socially-distant tables full (along with people at the bar by the time we left). Classy, comfortable DR, top-notch staff combined with delicious food and cocktails equated to an excellent dining experience. Shared 3 small plates and a dessert, which was perfect for 2 people. Highly recommend!

We’ve reached the point where we can’t picture a special occasion without the Cellar. Anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, anytime we’re hosting out of town guests, this is where you’ll find us. It’s the only spot I’ve found that serves incredible food with great ambiance and fantastic service where you can still have a quick, casual chat with your server or bartender. They deliver upscale without the “stuffy”, with a menu and cocktails to die for. We have caught ourselves ordering another drink after dinner just to stay a little while longer. We’re all allowed our favorites, and The Cellar is ours.
