The Cellar at Duckworth's
We loved our experience at the Cellar! The food is amazing and ambiance was amazing!
The Cellar is one of my fave restaurants uptown!! The food is always delicious and there is a wonderfully creative variety of beverages that will appease anyone’s taste!
Restaurant is on the site of a former Prohibition era speak easy. Servers are incredibly personable and knowledgable. The cocktails are very unique and the beer list is extensive. A fabulous place for a date or a small party. The Nutella inspired cheesecake is one of the best desserts I have ever eaten. The Red Snapper, too, is to die for.
Nice dimly lit atmosphere set the mood for a great date night. The craft cocktails are amazing. We had the East Village and Veux Carre’ cocktails. The duck flatbread was also worth trying.
I wish they would use different floor cleaner. Their floors are always slippery 😣
The food was great but the drinks were even better. Especially the extra touch of smoking the Old Fashioned.
Always a winner. The food is exvellent and the drinks are fantastic.
Unique and cool ambiance. Very dark lighting but that accents the theme of a speakeasy. Huge and creative beer and cocktails. Farm to table menu.
Amazing food & service. Touring the beautiful beer cellar was the icing on the cake!
Some of the best cocktails in town
If you are into beer or cocktails this might be your kind of establishment. Wine selection was very limited. I inquired about bottled water as the water served smelled like chlorine to find they did not serve bottled water. We tried the charcuterie board and a couple of tapas items...mediocre at best. We found this restaurant to be more pretentious and hype than anything.
This restaurant is rated in Top Ten Romantic in Uptown, NOT! Noisy, no ambience, confusing & incompatible menu. Noted in reservation we were celebrating my birthday—No recognition at all. Will never go back!
Great speakeasy! Food was fantastic and great for sharing. Would totally recommend this spot.
Other than a price discrepancy on the menu and they forgot to make one of our dishes, which they made up for, it was a great experience and I would love to go back! Great place and atmosphere, although a little loud cause of the voices carrying.
Service was amazing. They were friendly and informative and well trained.
Each dish was spectacular. And the hand crafted cocktails were out of this world!
We've had many good times at the Cellar and this was one of the best. The food, cocktails and service were all absolutely outstanding. Everything is interesting and creative and expertly prepared. Love the speak-easy atmosphere. This is my favorite place to go in Charlotte. Even watching the bartenders is entertaining!
Fantastic service from Darren! He was very informative on what to suggest and what was popular from a food and drink standpoint. He greeted us with enthusiasm and charm and made our night. It was our 1st time at The Cellar and Darren made it a great experience.
(He' there Mon, Tue, Wed, and Sat!)
Atmosphere and service was superb. I loved the speak-easy theme and it carried through the entire meal. The food did not disappoint either!
Great service and food! Highly recommend. The cocktails were very well done - to perfection. We had the steak - perfectly seasoned and cooked. The scallops and fish was also a big hit.
We were a bit underwhelmed. Hiw can a place with hundreds of beers not have any good German beers (Kolsch or similar) in the middle of the Summer? Perhaps they did, but I couldn't find any on the tablet they use. And no server for 8 mins or so made me just want to order something since I feared waiting longer.
Anyway, food was good if not a but pricey for portions. The guys at the table next to ours seemed happy enough after they got invited back to beer cellar. Looked like it was a fun trip, too bad we never had the chance for that!
Our server appeared too busy, disinterested, and downright surly to even talk to. When she carded me upon order (I am mid 40s w Anderson Cooper grey hair) I tried to make a joke about how that only works with my wife to think it is a complement and our server acted indignant that I even was surpised.
Oh well, others will probably have a better time but we won't be back (and doubt they give a darn).
Outstanding dinner. Bobby Sunshine is one of the finest servers we have ever had. Fun and informative and gave wonderful suggestions. The lamb chops were perfect, the Mac and cheese was wonderful and the Brussel sprouts were amazing. Yes, Brussel sprouts that were amazing.
Next time we are in town we will definitely eat there again.
It was a first time visit made due to online reviews. The Cellar at Duckworth's did not disappoint.
It has been a long time since I've had such a well-prepared meal. From the handcrafted cocktail of Blood & Sand (wish there had been more of it!) along with char-grilled oysters to the duck ragu, charred romaine (enough for 2) and seared red snapper, all was yum. The only disappointment was the glass of shiraz (I did not look at the wine menu so cannot tell you what it was) which was a mouthful of cinnamon. It was barely drinkable. It might be to other's taste though doubtful.
All the food that we sawing passing by looked delicious too. There were so many choices not made that another visit will happen soon.
Work on your lip reading skills as the noise level is high. Everyone was having a good time on a Thursday early evening.
Service was excellent with all staff members assisting at tables. What a pleasure to experience a well-trained staff that really seemed to be enjoying what they were there to do.
The only off points for us were the excessive noise levels and very darkly lit stairs. Hold the hand rail! All part of the speakeasy atmosphere. Just be prepared.
Food was awesome - waitress was great as well. Nutella cheesecake for dessert is a must.
Great food and great service.
The food and unique ambiance got our attention but Darrell, our server stole the show! Excellent service and superior food made for an unforgettable night out. Cant wait to comeback. And we will definitely ask for Darrell again.
I didn’t realize that the cellar Duckworth’s was different than the Duckworth’s upstairs. Nevertheless it was a nice find. The food was tasty the atmosphere was good even beers when they turned up the lights. It was a little too dark when we first arrived. I would not suggest going there if you need to be somewhere on time as the server got missing more than we would have wanted and my parents really needed to get to see a play at the Blumenthal on time.
Otherwise it was great
A truly fun and enjoyable evening. Great ambiance and vibe at the bar and in the dining area. Great food selections and unique drinks were offered along with appetizers. Short walk to many venues for theater and other activities. Wine list limited but good selection for normal dining. They are focused on specialty drinks with amazing flavors and aromas.
Great ambiance and the filet mignon was amazing. Must try the truffle Mac and cheese. Superb!!!
The burger is delicious! Great ambiance--dimly lit true cellar vibe.
Awesome food and ambience. Waiter obviously enjoyed his job and was very knowledgeable about the food, wine and the history of the venue. HIGHLY recommended!
Great place. Will definitely be back!
We were going to a show so booked dinner reservations. When we first walked in it took me a bit to adjust to the lighting, but once we did we really enjoyed the atmosphere and service. Our waiter was excellent and the manager checked on us a few times too! Excellent service! Food was delicious too!
This place has something for everyone! From the immensely impressive beer list to the delicious handcrafted cocktails; from the tapas style dishes to the decadent desserts, you can’t leave here dissatisfied! It was the perfect spot for my date night and I will definitely be returning. We had the truffle Mac n cheese, truffle fries, Kansas City steak and a variety of cocktails. I would recommend all of the above. The East Village whiskey cocktail is so smooth and has become my drink of choice. Don’t miss out on this incredible spot next time you’re in downtown Charlotte!
Bad food, service was too fast - we had our food before we got a drink. Overall a poor experience.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. The food is amazing every single time. Worth the money!
I made a reservation for 7:45 and arrived at 7:30. I was seated at a high top table with unstable chairs. I asked if I could please be moved to a table and was told it would be at least 45 min . We waited at the bar over cocktails and cheese ( average at best ) for 45 min and then was seated. The dinner menu was limited and unimpressive ...
Chloe was a great server! James- the manager also stopped by to make sure we had a great experience! Thank you for making my wife’s birthday something special.
Great anniversary meal all the way from the crafted cocktails to the almond snore Desert will be back again for date night Great place Great Staff
we had a terrific experience here. definitely recommend
I made reservations for my boyfriend and I for date night. This place had good reviews. They sat us at a bar top table. It was so congested, my chair got bumped by people walking to bar and the waitstaff at next table around 7-8 times. The food was not that great either. We ordered duck flatbread which was the best thing we had. Then shrimp and grits, Mac n cheese, and tuna tartare. Everything had the same flavor. Not sure what the seasoning is, but everything was loaded with it. It was a little much to eat over and over again.
Cameron Our waiter is an asset to your establishment. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the building and answered all of our questions. This will be a must stop next time we are in the area.
