A TRUE Greek restaurant!! Many restaurants in Charlotte are Greek-owned, yet their menus consist of typical American fare. NOT THIS ONE! The menu, though fairly limited, consists of true Greek dishes. Their "Hand-Cut Fries" are wonderful and you have 3 flavor options for them: Plain, Cumin & Garlic, or Lemon & Oregano. We had Lemon & Oregano. Do NOT interfere with their awesome flavor by covering them in ketchup! The Tzatziki (cucumber) sauce is quite good even though my personal preference is for a stronger garlic & dill flavor, Do NOT pass up this restaurant - it's everything you want in Greek food AND the prices are extremely reasonable.
We visit The Lodge pretty regularly and always have found the food, service, pricing and atmosphere to be great for a neighborhood pub operation. However, we found on our most recent visit that a live musician has been added. The gentlemen has a decent singing voice, but his style and repetoire are not in sync with the atmosphere of the place. Quite frankly, we found the singing somewhat annoying as we ate our dinner. No offense to the young man singing who is trying to earn some bucks, but it just doesn't mesh with The Lodge's sports bar/neighborhood pub style.
This place has one of the best beer selections in South Charlotte. The place to go if you're serious about your beer. The food is good, too, especially the fries. I'm only giving three stars because of the sports bar aspect. What would otherwise be a relaxing tavern-like experience is ruined by the blaring tvs all over the place. I think there's enough places where you can grab a beer and watch the game. How about a place where you can grab a beer and chat with your friend?
This was by far THE BEST steakhouse experience we have had in Charlotte. The lobster Mac n cheese is the stuff of dreams. Attentive and warm service staff that was on top of their game... I was cold and was given a shawl in addition to the thermostat adjustment. I haven't eaten my dessert yet because I'm so full but it's in the to-go bag right now and I have no doubt it will be as excellent as everything else was.
I've been here a few times and the service is always friendly. The menu items are hit and miss, but I can say that the grilled lamb chops are very good. I didn't like the chicken schwarma. Once the tabouli salad had way too much salt and vinegar, next time it was good...
I love this place. I'm writing this between bites of the most delicious falafel ever. It's so unbelievably good. I've eaten here at least six times and have never been disappointed. Even the salads are perfect- always fresh, well dressed and generously portioned.
If you love good home cooking for a great price this is the place to go. It is a very small place that only has carry out but is worth going to every time. Try the Big John Cheese Burger Special Excellent!!!!! The Best Fried Squash in town!!!!
Love the live jazz on weekends. I had a Bday party there with 20 guests and the staff was awesome! Food and cocktails are always great. $5 cover when live banfs perform
I've been once, and will definitely go back. The food was good, reasonably priced and fresh. The employees were friendly, and the atmosphere is warm and cozy.
