The Grinning Mule
We tried Grinning Mule for the first time and it won't be out last! This place was absolutely great! The environment was enjoyable and the service was absolutely excellent! Bob, our bartender, knew so much about Cognac and Bourbon. His drinks were absolutely on point! The food was delicious and the owners came up and talked to us. We really appreciated the time we spent, it felt like a little community. I would recommend anyone looking for a relatively low key but elegant place to try Grinning Mule.
Loved everything about this neighborhood gem!! Every cocktail we tried here was unique and delicious (and hand delivered by Bob, the mastermind behind the bar). The staff was friendly and attentive and the owners came over to share a bit of their story with us. We love supporting a local non profit and we will be back to try the delicious looking food (and for more cocktails of course!)
A fabulous addition to the neighborhood! Superior service, delicious food and strong cocktails! Its a must try, you wont be disappointed!!
My family was on a day trip to Charlotte from Columbia, SC. After a shopping excursion we were looking for a place to eat dinner. Grinning Mule was not our 1st choice, but the other restaurants has long waits. I am so glad we could not get into other restaurants, The Grinning Mule was a great discovery! Our family of five loved the atmosphere, the service and the food was fantastic! It is now a destination spot for us when we are in Charlotte.
Absolutely loved the vibe. Happiest wait staff. Great food. Try the Korean BBQ tacos.
