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.

Easily my favorite speak easy in town. Their cocktails are classic, with a wide variety pending on your preference. If you lean towards bourbon / whiskey cocktails, this place is for you. Coupled with a fun and diverse array of sharable plates, this is a fun restaurant for either a romantic date night, gathering with friends, or blowing off steam after work. Love this joint!!

Great ambiance and music, very good food - while at a fairly premium price, the food doesn't disappoint, so it's okay value-wise. You won't think you're getting a steal, but with the ambiance and nice old school music most of the time, plus very good food, the value is still there. The cellar isn't our most frequented restaurant, but we do hit it up every few months.

The whole experience was fantastic from the moment we sat down. Jameson was our server and was so knowledgeable of the perfect cocktail to create for our liking. I got the scallops, oysters, and we each got the filet and desert to top off the meal. This place did not disappoint and made our girls dinner out a success!

This is the first time going to Cellar at Duckworths and it was amazing. The food, service, and the time spent there couldn’t have been better. Our waiter Brandon had knowledge on everything; the food, drinks and even the desserts. He had everything memorized and our glasses were never empty. The food was amazing. Overall, this is my new favorite place to eat.

We had no idea what to expect but we tried this place anyways. The ambience was perfect for date night, low lights soft music. The food was even better. Not many options on the menu but what they had was delicious. We will be back.

Absolutely our new favorite restuarant. I took my GF here for V-Day weekend booking at the Dunhill which is one block away. This place has it all. Cool history and story. Charlotte's only beer vault. The food is incredible. Everything was good. Charcuterie board was great, steak was perfectly cooked but overpriced, truffle mac-n-cheese was delicious, the salad was incredible with the soft cheese and watermelon....drool...I forgot the name if it. The GF and I shared everything. High gravity beer, great cocktails, romantic lighting. Try the East Village cocktail.
We will be back soon. Service was good. Good job Darren. I am even tempted to get a beer locker which houses your beers you can have whenever you dine there. Only the ultra cool can have them lol. $250 a year.
Special dinners have to be here. Guys, do yourself a favor. She will love it. If she doesn't then she isnt the one :).

We had an incredible night with incredible service from Jamison. We had a few of the signature cocktails and some of their draft beers but the food was the star of the show. From the oysters and charcuterie board to the prime rib followed by desert, it was all top notch and worth every penny. We'll be back soon!

Amazing experience, highly recommend. Our server, Crissy, was fantastic. She explained the menu inside and out, recommend the right cocktails, and made us feel special.
The steaks are amazing, a little salty, but juicy and tender. We will definitely be going back here!

My family had a great experience. It was my birthday and they had an incredible Nutella cheesecake for the perfect dessert . I wish I remember our waiters name because he did a great job explaining the menu and all they had to offer. We will definitely be back. Also, the drinks were so good.

The Cellar has taken steps to insure social distancing, and it is appreciated, since it is a small dining area. The service was impeccable as always, and the food was excellent. The tapas-style food delivery may not suit everyone, but it's a nice change from the ordinary. The hand-crafted cocktails are always a treat. Prices are on the high side, but worth the splurge for a nice meal with professional service.

Nice casual dining experience in basement of Duckworth's (I saw shorts being worn and suits). Servers were attentive and friendly. Food was good. Drinks were primarily prohibition style bourbon and whiskey drinks. Something fun and different. Maybe small plate and drink experience next time, instead of full dinner. The jalapeno bacon starter and the cheese board was quite good.
