300 East is a Dilworth mainsta...

300 East is a Dilworth mainstay for good reason. The food is excellent and affordable, and the service is top-notch. Whether it is date night, lunch with the ladies, or a baby shower (It was all adults … it really isn’t a great place for kids.) like the one that was given for me there a few years ago, 300 East is a favorite of mine.

Get anything on the menu; it is all good. My favorites include the Sweet Potato Ravioli, Fall Salad, Black Bean and Green Chile Chicken Tortilla, and whatever the special is that day. Get the Housemade Pimento Cheese as an app while you are at it. This piece of advice comes from a girl who doesn’t even like Pimento Cheese, so you know it is good stuff.

When you head to the restrooms, look carefully and you’ll notice the cheeky sense of humor that defines the coziness of the place on the bathroom doors. Look extra carefully if you have imbibed their signature Wong cocktail. It goes down (too) easily, and they are so strong that patrons are limited to two per sitting.

They are extra accommodating at 300 East of those who are eating gluten-free, and the patio out front is a garden oasis on busy East Boulevard. Because the food, service and atmosphere are so delicious, be sure to make a reservation or be prepared to wait a bit during busy times. It’s worth it.

Uncooked

Had dinner at 300 East last week. Sat outside on a beautiful day and enjoyed the nice setting 300 has for its guests. Yet.....ordered the pork medallion entr?e which arrived almost raw in the middle. Sent it back and all they did was to nuke it and put it back on the table. Would not recommend the Pork here........

Excellent Food...

300 East has been a favorite of mine since moving to Charlotte in 2005. The food rarely disappoints. The Sunday brunch specials will knock your socks off, and if you need a good soup to warm your soul, look no further. That said, the service ranges from excellent to awful. More often than not, it is quite good. Bear in mind that it is a fairly casual environment, so you aren't going to get fine dining service, no matter how hefty your bill might be. Being a regular, I wish that the servers would notice that I tip fairly, even for poor service. I tend to assume that I caught a server having a bad day, and let it slide. These things happen. If you can forgive all this, the food is definitely worth it. The menu has some good, responsibly produced meats and vegetables, for those of you who care about that stuff. The sweet potato ravioli is always a treat. I get the Ahi Tuna Salad, and find it to be consistently enjoyable. The Niman Ranch Pork is absolutely fantastic. I don't eat dessert much, but i am willing to bet 300 East has some stellar creations. The weird outside table rule does baffle me, but we beat it by calling some more friends to join us.

Our All Time Favorite

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary with dinner at 300 East. We continue to be amazed at the quality of this restaurant (the food and the service) over the many years we have been visiting. This place is locally owned, no franchise, no clone. Their long time specials are still special and yet there's always a good surprise if you're looking for something different. If you haven't eaten there, you should, it's just one of the nicest places in Charlotte.

Won't Go Back!!

My husband, myself and my little girl decided to eat lunch here one afternoon on a beautiful day! Although, after our rude experience we wished we would have gone somewhere else. We sat outside at a VERY small two top table that was part shade/part sun. After a few minutes we realized it was too much sun for our little girl so we asked to move to one of the EMPTY 4-top tables that was in the shade but we were told they were for ""larger"" parties. First of all, we had 3 people second there was NO wait and third, our child was burning up in the sun.
They did offer to move us inside, but we wanted to enjoy the outdoors and it is much easier sitting outside with a baby! The remainder of our lunch the 2 tables were empty! I would have to say after working in the food industry they are making very stupid mistakes. We used to love this place and now we will not go back!!

outdoor seating

My husband and I are from out of town and have previously eaten at 300 East with friends - so we thought we?d enjoy the cool 4th of July weather Charlotte was having and eat outdoors. When we asked if we could sit at the remaining unoccupied table, the hostess told us ?we like to save the four-tops for three or more customers.? Stunned (and hungry), we said okay. She sat us by a front window and near the front door and I counted three other ?couples? request the same outdoor table and they all received the same reply. The restaurant was very slow (maybe ten people inside) and the table remained empty during our lunch visit. From our previous visit, we remembered the food being very tasty. Unfortunately this was not the case this time. I ordered the Ahi salad and received two small pieces of tuna along with a very rubbery rice cake. The waitress never returned to our table so after waving her down, she did go back to the kitchen and tried a different method of warming the rice cake. She then told me the rice cooker was broken and that is why the cake was rubbery (?). Our meals were definitely not worth the hefty price tag and were very disappointing. We should have left once we were told we couldn?t sit at the empty table outside! Lesson learned.

Fresh Food, Unique Menu, So-So Service

My girlfriend and I were looking for a low key outdoor dining experience for lunch this weekend while running some errands in Dilworth and decided on 300 East. The menu is compact and has a unique twist on traditional dishes. The service....we'll lets just say it needs some help. We were promptly seated in the garden bistro table section out in front of the restaurant which can be a little annoying if the bugs are out. We had waited a few minutes after being seated before being greeted by our waitress. Being a hot day, I ordered a beer and my girlfriend ordered a diet coke. About 5 minutes later she brought back the drinks, the diet coke being flat. Another 5 minutes pass by and the waitress came back and took our orders, my girlfriend ordered ""The Usual"" (open-faced chicken salad sandwich with asparagus and cheddar cheese) and I ordered a cheeseburger with bacon and jalapenos and a cucumber salad. Both of which were full of flavor and prepared very well. Waiting for the food took longer than usual or expected considering the restaurant was not even close to being busy. The waitress almost seemed as if we were a nuisance to her, only visiting our table when it was absolutely necessary (i.e. to get drinks, to take order, to bring food, to bring check). No check ups, no making sure food was prepared to our liking. It seemed like that was the norm for at least the patrons who were outside, as the other tables didn't appear to be getting much love either. 300 East is a place where I try to go because it's a local establishment and uses quality ingredients. And, yes, the food is great, but the service reminds me why I don't eat there more often.

Best meal in a long time!

300 East was a true delight! We ordered the chicken with goat cheese and the hanger steak. It was the best meal we have had in a long time. Service was impeccable!

Sadness

For years I enjoyed coming to 300East to enjoy the entire menu, trying to not be mundane, changing up every time. Weekly I would have a meeting nearby and stop to sit at the bar for a bowl of soup or salad with a cocktail or tea. On the past two visits, I've been discouraged to find portions sadly reduced (my side salad was a portion that made me wonder if this was a "taste testing" for culinary exploration. I also was seated with a friend that also was eager to return each time for the eclectic menu offered. When we had no follow-up visits by our server to check on anything and waited 15 minutes after consuming our dinner, we decided it was time to stop waiting and check out at the bar with the manager. Our server FINALLY discovered our absence and came downstairs.

I am sad to say, I/we won't be returning for some time. And that is after 8 years of patronage.

sabotage

My girlfriend and I celebrated our 6 month anniversary here. It was truly a special night. We were seated upstairs and waited on by a professional and friendly staff. Our food was pretty good but my girlfriend's salad was small for the price. I had the Shrimp BLT Panini. It was delecious but quite spicy. It made my lips burn! But that wasn't a problem for me. The problem was four hours later when I was hunched on the can, pale and shivering. One may ask, ""Well how do you know it was the BLT?"" Let me just say this... It burned me twice.
