I went to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday with some of my girlfriends. It was everything I expected and more! The food was excellent, especially the trout. Prices are a little expensive, but worth it. If you're looking for ambiance this is the place! Customer service was awesome. Having the igloo experience was great. It's very private and is not noisy. The lighting is very dim at night and it's hard to see the menu. I suggest to request an igloo that has better lighting and not one that seems so distant. It's a $25 fee to reserve the igloo that is a part of your bill. I will definitely be returning!
My close friend took me to The Goodyear House for the first time and I left extremely eager to go back. First I was impressed by her saying it was her favorite restaurant in Charlotte. Not just NoDa, but all of Charlotte. Then I was impressed by the professionalism, personality and knowledge of our server, Nathan. He was a cheerful man that quickly connected with both of us. Not to mention he knew the menu front to back and could speak well beyond the words that were just on the menu itself. It's rare that I request a certain individual, but I will politely request Nathan every time I come here and moving forward. Depending on where you stand, the food could be considered on the pricier side. But in this case, you get well beyond what you pay for. We had a pasta, steak, appetizer and side. Everything was unique, complex yet balanced and delicious. Surprisingly large portions too. And the first time in many years that I thought purchasing a steak in a restaurant was worth it. All in all, a truly fantastic experience and one to remember. Looking forward to going back soon and spreading the word on this one. Thank you Goodyear House and thank you Nathan!
What a gem! Our dinner here on 2/23/2021 was such a wonderful experience. Every staff member was a dear, every bite was a surprise in the best of ways, and the atmosphere was very peaceful. We did an early dinner with two kids 5 and 8, who declared it to be their new favorite. Some of the winners for us were the Parmesan Bag Fries, the chicken entree, the sweet potato, and for me, the beans and rice (holy cow so good). Every menu item was simple but crafted in such a way that it was like trying something for the first time. The ONLY menu item that we didnt finish off, were the Brussels, but that could be a preference thing, as Asian style Brussels arent always our favorite. With a menu that will change seasonally, we will be sad to potentially see some of our new favorites gone next time we make it down to this little Charlotte gem, but were so excited to try anything that comes from this kitchen. Make sure to buy a round for the kitchen staff, they earn it!
Cool spot, 100%. Their outside patio is awesome. That's where it's at. Had very good service. It's a little pricey for dinner, I'm sure it's delicious though; but drinks and apps were perfect for me this time around
The ambiance and service here are great, but the food and drinks to me are a little lacking. Not enough menu options and overpriced for what you get. $21 for a burger with side salad of nothing but lettuce, cheese, and pickled onions, and burger was not as good as hyped up to be. Margarita was way too sour. Total bill was over $100 for 1 app, 2 entrees and 2 drinks... Def not worth the price tag. IF I came back it would be for the nice back bar/ patio area and only for wine or beer. There are far better options in the area.
