Rooster's Wood-fired Kitchen - Southpark
One of my top places to eat in Charlotte. Quality of food is great and service is good. Scallops, mashed potatoes, and salmon are all delicious. A little pricey but well worth it. Highly recommend! I haven't been to the Uptown location though - so I can't speak for there.
This place is awesome. Food was incredible. A little on the pricey side but well worth it. We had the BBQ chicken and the pork chop. You get several options for sides but they are individually priced and not included with the meal. The macaroni and cheese is a must try, it was delicious. I will definitely be returning.
We went with a large party earlier tonight. The table was not set for the number of guests reserved which left my husband awkwardly sitting on the corner before we moved 14 of our closest friends to accommodate him. The food had a seriously long wait. The waitstaff was very nice and well informed on what was safe considering my gluten allergy. My daughter's burger was burnt and heavily over salted. She refused to eat it despite loving burgers. Thankfully the fries were fine. When mine and my husbands food came out way over salted too I knew there must be a real issue with the chef. Im a salt lover, dont get me wrong, but this was really a disgusting amount of salt. Since the wait was so long I didnt have it in me to send back our food and wait again.
This place had a nice atmosphere, and the staff was friendly. The location I went to had taller wood tables, and slightly uncomfortable wooden stools that you sit on. You may need to pull out your smartphone to define some of the terms on the menu. Portions were not as large as I would have expected at this price point. Also, no side dishes come with any of the entrees that I saw. The sides dishes are all extra cost - but they do come in large enough portions that you could share with several other people (aka family style dining for the sides). The location that we were at had a large selection of beer & wine. For the kids and non-drinkers they had a selection of Coke products.
I'm in the minority here it seems but I'm just not a huge fan of the Roosters menu. The south park location is nice in terms of ambiance. Service has always been good. But I have had the chicken in the past in addition to a few of the other appetizers and entrees and by far my favorite thing is the french onion soup. Otherwise I'd say the menu leaves me unimpressed. But it is a nice ambiance with a decent variety on the menu...
