Salted Melon Market & Eatery
This is a nice addition to Charlotte dining. Ordered chicken caprice sandwich and a club sandwich both with watermelon salad as side. The watermelon salad had feta and mint in it and was delicious. We both loved our sandwiches where tastes worked well together and were well executed. The bread was delicious. We will be back. Took 23 minutes to get our meal which was fine as was the weekend and we were enjoying sitting outside.
Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious! I got the 5 star steak sandwich and it lived up to its name, totally recommend! They have a lot of yummy drinks and everything is very fairly priced. The atmosphere was great too but just a little loud in the restaurant at peak times.
Truly not a fan. I swear I wanted to love this place for it puts me In the mind of common markets here in Charlotte . The whole concept of a convenient store is mode along with a restaurant . Our food was beyond basic we both decided to play it safe only because when we ordered our drinks we were not wowed by the drinks alone . Now I myself am a lover of aperol spritz cocktails, I noticed they offered the slushy aperol spritzer which I thought would be really cool but they actually tasted nothing like an aperol spritz at all . I ordered a Turkey burger and my friend ordered a chicken dish that she wasn't even aware was a type of burger Because it did not state burger on the menu ! Neither of us was crazy about our food I literally took a few bites and couldn't eat anymore I ate all of my fries tho . When our waiter came he asked did we want to go boxes and when we said no I could tell his facial expression said it all like ok they apparently did not care for their food which was obvious being that either of us barley ate our food . So our totals each was a little over $30 each . This is not somewhere I have to ever come back to again .
Steak sandwich was AMAZING. Get the melon mule, melon marg, and an espresso martini. All absolutely delicious. Xan was awesome, super attentive and friendly. Made me a great house cocktail!
Went on their opening day. Atmosphere is great, the service was attentive. We had dinner and both entres were delicious; braised short rib, and truffle cacio e pepe. The grocery section had a very nice selection to choose from definitely were to get a sandwich/drink/snack for lunch. Theres also a bakery counter in the grocery side. Lots of seating for a casual lunch time or for waiting on your to go order. Theres a parking garage in the building if you cannot find free parking on the nearby streets. The kinks to still work out; bread was a bit chewy/over toasted. The bartenders are new and the drinks needed to be stirred, but otherwise proportions of drink mix to alcohol was correct. Some of the veggies in the grocery section were starting to whither/wrinkle. They don't have shades on the windows yet but they're on order to be installed asap. These are all minor issues that will be resolved soon I'm sure. Absolutely grab a bite and go grocery shopping at the Salted Melon!
