I was wanting to try out different pubs and eateries around Charlotte with a friend and thought it would be neat to check this place out due to the good reviews. However upon entering tonight with my friend we didn't feel very welcomed. When we came in, although we were greeted by the bartender, I courteously asked if we should wait to be seated or if we are welcome to sit anywhere (being a hostess at a restaurant myself, I simply didn't want to be rude and seat ourselves). No response, which was odd, so after a quick debate, we eventually sat ourselves at the bar. We were then abruptly asked if we would rather sit at a table by the bartender. Why though, when the bar is open seating and it's just the two of us? I understand that my friend and I look terribly young for being 23 and 24, however, that doesn't give anyone any reason to be rude like this. After graciously giving her our Id's for our beers she had a slight change in attitude. It could have been handled much better if she would have asked for our Id's first when we sat down if she wasn't so sure about our ages, which would have been completely understandable. Later a friend did want to meet up with us, so we felt it was better to get a table in the end. We respectfully closed our tab at the bar and took our table. The food wasn't too bad, hence the 3 stars. The service was mediocre. Loved the spinach dip. However I don't think I feel comfortable in returning to this place.
Great stop for drinks and dinner with friends. I had the bangers and mash. So good! I also tried my friends spinach dip and meat pizza and it was good too. I didn't care so much for the pizza sauce but overall it was pretty good. Great outdoor patio with lots of heaters for a chilly night.
Very fast & friendly, nice old building. I love the look of the place and the decorations that they use at the pub. The parking lot is very small & some parts are very difficult to get out of. However, this place is obviously a wonderful place to go too, just watch where you park that's about all.
Exit Strategy is my happy place. It decor is cool, the food is delicious, and the beer is perfection. If I ever need to choose my last meal, I would pick their grilled cheese. It's heaven on bread.
Nice place to drink and have fun with friends.. dark ambience and cool crowd ..can go to this if you are done with epicenter pubs
