We love this place. We have never had a dish that we didn’t like. Everything is delicious and fresh. The service is great and you are not rushed. They have never brought dinner with our appetizer on the table (like a lot of places). Our waitress was always there to remove an empty plate, glass or anything that was finished or might be in the way. The only complaint I have is that even though we had a reservation, it was almost 45 minutes before we were seated. But we grabbed a cocktail from the bar while we waited and our dinner was worth the wait.

Great concept, reception warm, ambitious menu, food tasty, waiters friendly; this will be a destination for us to plan for even if out of the way on our journeys. We sent pictures of establishment and plated food to our friends and encouraged them to attend.

Food should not be allowed to taste that good!.. The waitstaff is professional and on point. The ambiance is romantic yet fun and I love that they show American movie Classics on the big screen while you dine... it’s definitely not cheap, but it’s worth every penny.

We were visiting from Michigan and heard a great review of Webb. This place did not disappoint! The service was fantastic with Southern charm, the food was spot on, and the ambiance was great. People need to venture from Charlotte to Gastonia for this place.

The food was fantastic. The service was spot-on. Our server was attentive and came by our table frequently to check to ensure all was OK. We both had the Fillet, and it was one of the best steaks I have eaten.

I highly recommend Webb Custom Kitchen.

We had heard it was a unique place. It is all that and more. The space itself is breathtaking. It’s a former movie palace — the kind that showed one film at a time. The cavernous space has been gorgeously preserved. The vast arched ceiling is a framework of polished wood and pale panels.

Now there’s an open-air kitchen in front of the screen instead of a stage. And there are elegant tables where rows of seats once stood, even in the balcony. The ornate original decor is enhanced with antique gear and new art along the walls.

But we came to eat, and again we were delighted beyond expectations. We had wraps for lunch — veggie and shrimp — with superb zucchini fries and an ice-cold lager. They were fresh, flavorful and filling. Prices are quite reasonable, at least for the lunches. If we lived in the area we’d be back often. Anyone looking for a neat experience in the Charlotte-Gastonia area should make a reservation or just go look.

We were celebrating a birthday. Everything from the artisanal bread basket to the steaks were amazing! Awesome onion soup, amazing salads! Drinks from the bar were awesome. The waitress, Jessica, was fun and friendly. She even helped us serve the cake we brought in. I can’t recommend this place enough!

We got there 15 min early but we were seated right away -- always a good sign. Upon sitting down our waiter came over and gave us a history of the building which was really cool and then took our order.
He then delivered our drinks and a few minutes later our food came and it was delicious.
The crab cakes were moist with just a slight crust to them and the filet was so tender.
I could not have asked for a better experience.

Charming establishment set in the heart of Historic Gastonia.
Love the fact that the restaurant was once the old movie theater in town back from the roaring 20’s which is reflected throughout the decor-
Menu has a mix of elegance with contemporary and reasonably priced .
Food is astounding and the service is on key.

Everything about our evening was amazing. It was the perfect place to celebrate our son’s and his fiancé’s engagement. The selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts were wonderful and every part of our meal was delicious. Kudos to our server who was very attentive and knowledgeable about the restaurants history. If there was anything I could change, it would be the noise level, but it wasn’t unbearable. I definitely will come back and definitely recommend it to all of my friends.

Webb Theatre was a beautiful setting with an old b/w movie playing with no sound on the screen. Quiet, restful. Wait staff was exceptional. They each signed a card for us when we left because it was our wedding anniversary. It had a strip of environmental flowers attached to plant. Salads were perfect. My herb crusted chicken was cooked beautifully but it was better without so much of the crust. The shrimp and grits were spicy and not your typical shrimp and grits. The drinks were very good. Would recommend for special occasions or simply a nice night dining out.

We were there for our anniversary and we were at one of the tables on the side so I felt like we were too close to the other diners beside us. I like that you have valet parking. My husband loved his dinner. I was not as pleased with mine, but it was no fault of the restaurant or chef. My husband really liked what I ordered. It just wasn't my particular taste preference. I will go back and try other dishes. We did order dessert to go and it was great!

We were looking forward to celebrating our anniversary at this restaurant, since we had been there before. We were greeted by the hostess "Happy Anniversary'' . We were seated in balcony , which we enjoyed . Our waitress never asked about refilling our drinks, ; had to ask for water refill; dinner was lukewarm at best. Waitress seemd to want to rush to take our order & never once acknowledged our anniversary, as did other waiters/waitresses did to their customers near us. The best part of our meal were ths duck cigars as an appetizer.

The atmosphere was very nice. Had upper seating which was very nice. Had filet mignon, which was excellent, possible best steak I have had dining out. The wedge salad was very good also. Our biggest disapointment was no bread offered. I think this is something that should be added.

First time here, drinks are priced well, and had a variety of specialty drinks on their menu. Food menu was good and overall a good selection, was surprised that they offered no lamb. Salads with Blue. Geese was awesome. As well as the lobster and fried green tomatoes.

Are server was average and had little personality, some of our group that had been there many tones mentioned the same. Maybe she was having a bad night.
