Clutch Kitchen & Pour House
Visited Wednesday 8/10/22 at around 12:45pm for lunch and cocktails. Me and my friend walk in and stand to wait to be seated. Then after about two mins of standing, the bar tender shouts to us that we can take a seat anywhere. We would have done this in the first place had there been a sign telling customers to do so. Pictured are the mozzarella sticks, fried chicken sandwich with onion rings, and buffalo chicken wrap with waffle fries. Food took a little long to come out. Mozzarella sticks 8/10, they were hot and fresh. The breading could use some seasoning. I like how they garnish it with Parmesan cheese. Chicken sandwich 6/10, Ive had better. And the onions rings were not the best. Barely any breading on them. The waffle fries were great! I did not try the wrap, my friend ordered that. The alcohol was great! The atmosphere is your usual sports bar. Plenty of TVs. The bartender was friendly and attentive! The restaurant is average sized and they also have outdoor seating. The parking isnt the best. Small parking lot on one side of the shopping center. The other side says its permit parking only, tow away zone. There is a pay for parking lot across the street. Its worth checking out but I personally wouldnt come here again; its mediocre.
Overall good food and good service. The Philly Cheesesteak was pretty good but a tad bit dry. Their waffle fries were perfectly cooked and crispy. The onion rings were slightly undercooked in my opinion. I love that they have outdoor seating available so we can bring our dog. We'll be back again.
Clutch has been one of the goto bars for Panther and FC fans alike within the Gateway/3rd ward neighborhood. Featuring weekly food and drink specials it's definitely a great spot to grab a bite and a draft to watch the game. Their specality burgers are one of the best things on the menu. With the Stakehouse and Carolina Classic being top tier choices. Only wish there was an option for adding another patty. The service itself has typically been pretty slow over the last few years which is to be expected of many of the sports bars in the area. Overall, a solid spot if you're around the stadium
My first time here, i am from out of town, NYC. Google a sport bar in downtown Charlotte and this place showed up. Glad we choose to go, it really for sport lover and the food is good. Had fried pickle
