What a great find. I'm from Louisiana and normally do not order seafood outside of state, but decided to give it a try. The blackened fish sandwich was better than most I have had in New Orleans. Atmosphere was cozy and homely feel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. If I travel back to Charlotte in the future, this will be a must, every time!!!!. Great Job to the owner and staff!!!
Always a delight to be here. We ordered What it is, Black bean burger and for the first time dessert - Blueberry Lemon cheesecake. The burger wasnt as I expected but thats fine we tried something new. What it is is my all time favorite dish to order. This time ordered extra sauce yummm. Blueberry Lemon cheesecake was amazing. Perfect balance of flavors for us. Dont think twice just order it!

A place so special you dont want to tell anyone about it, but then you also want it to be around for a long long time. This is THE quintessential neighborhood pub with friendly service and down to earth traditional American fare. The twice baked stuffed potatoes are served from 4 pm onwards and they are DELICIOUS!
Such a wonderful spot in Charlotte nestled amongst the historic Victoria era homes in the 4th Ward. Owner on site seating patrons, great service, and fantastic food made this a memorable Friday night. Now I know why nobody told me about this place...they wanted it all for themselves! Try the jalapeno beer...it's awesome.
Cute little neighborhood tavern/restaurant in uptown. We had no trouble getting a table early on a Tuesday evening. By 7pm it was packed. Very family friendly. Full bar, beer and wine, TVs for sports watching, street parking only. We ordered the What It Is Cajun pasta (good but not spicy, in case youre wondering) and the black bean burger (not very good, no flavor) with onion rings. Food was pretty good, service was very attentive.
