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.

    Great food, great ambiance. Service left a little to be desired, as waiter seemed annoyed we weren’t having cocktails, or too many other alcoholic beverages.

    Very small space, part of the charm, but crammed with people. Would be better if limited to smaller number of people at any given time from a noise perspective. Personally would rather have to make a reservation every time to have crowd control. Great service and food.

    The Cellar at Duckworth’s was phenomenal! The drinks and the steaks were beyond compare. Our waiter really knew his stuff—from the menu and providing the best recommendations to sharing the history of the restaurant and its origins as a speakeasy and jazz club. It was amazing!

    The Cellar at Duckworth was a unique place with a fascinating story behind it. The food was tremendous, but a bit overpriced. The waiter decided to tell us his whole life story and how he served Donald Trump, so that made it for a strange night. Overall great food, great scenery, and good experience as always because I was with my family.

    We were excited to try The Cellar due to the excellent food reviews. Our reservation was for 5:00 on a Sunday evening for a pre-theater dinner. We were a tad late due to the first Panthers game of the season just getting out and the Charlotte streets were mayhem! Once we arrived all the staff were pleasant and professional; the speakeasy vibe is inviting BUT the noise level is extremely LOUD. The restaurant seems to appeal to a younger crowd and we are 60+years young. We ordered a bottle of wine and a couple of small plates-the wine was very good; the food really lacked flavor. Our server Shelly was great-we just wanted to hurry on with our evening due to the noise level. I had read some comments about the noise level but I thought 5:00 on a Sunday shouldn't be too bad. If you want a nice meal with someone special The Cellar is probably not the best choice.

    Would have given 5 stars but I made this reservation on open table noting it was for a special occasion/birthday and this was not acknowledged by the server or hostess. I could not bring it to their attention on the spot obviously as I was hoping for it to be a surprise but this did put a slight damper on the experience.

    Our server Ben was wonderful! He gave us great recommendations & his personality was lovely. The steak was cooked to perfection & the halibut was excellent! The Mac & cheese was delicious & all of the cocktails were well balanced, but I highly recommend that naked on a plane if you’re a mezcal fan!

    The food was good nothing crazy but good. My issue was there was the value. We spent $130 for two drinks and four plates to share. There was barely any pork on the sliders, basically a quarter size piece of meat. The six oysters were the size of a dime. Their evenings special cocktail the size of a shot. Mac n cheese was good but not share size. The Tuna Tartare should have been an entree size for the $29 price.

    What a fantastic place! I loved the speakeasy vibe! The beer cellar was so unique & interesting! Mitchell was our server, he provided wonderful service and had good knowledge of the menu! Our favorites were the caramelized brussels, candied jalapeño bacon, scallops, & filet! The Nutella Cheesecake was to die for…more of mousse like dessert but beyond amazing!!! Highly recommend!

    The long and short of it is that this place just didn’t live up to the hype. The drinks were okay at best, and the food matched that slightly subpar experience. After a few of their small plates, we called it quits. Plenty of better options around, and most of those are easier to get a reservation at.

It's not often that the two of us are able to go out so when we do we try and make the most of it and this past Saturday Eve was absolutely outstanding! Please tell Jordan thank you so much for taking extra amazing care of us! We are 1000% happy!
