I ordered frizzled and drizzled fried chicken with honey and pepper gravy, galic mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans. So disappointed. Very little honey taste and zero pepper gravy, garlic potatoes zero garlic, seasoned green beans zero seasoning and they were cold. I wanted a strawberry daiquiri but go figure they didn't have a blender to make that. So i ordered a white zinfandel and only got a quarter glass way overpriced We asked our sever to clean our table 3 times because the first time it was wiped down with a stinky stale rag. Never happened. I had to ask 3 time for to go box. So 28.00 for this. Won't go back

I had the lamb pita. It was extremely flavorful, although a bit heavy. Our server was great! Great place to sit down for lunch if you're in town.

More than just a sports bar! Yes, of course the have all the sceens like you would expect in any sports bar, but they go so much farther than what you would consider standard "sport bar" grub. They have an incredible chef, and virtually everything is prepared from scratch. Charlene our server was great, when we were talking about the food, you could tell she loved the food there as well.

Happy Hour + Tuesday = Dreams Do Come True! Was off work early and decided to pop in the place just before 5pm to grab a nice Local Draft Beer in a place with some ambience. As Serendipity would have it, Beers are $2 of on Tuesdays! ... PLUS I arrived during Happy Hour, so Appetizers were 1/2 off! I ordered a sampling of Sliders first and then ordered wings to go. Everything meet and exceeded expectations. Will definitely be going back! FUN FACT: Smoking is generally NOT allowed in the American Tobacco District (where this place is located).

Chicken wings and cheese dip to start and at least three rounds of beers as the Charlotte Knights beat the Durham Bulls this evening. The game was fun to watch even though we couldn't hear any of the announcements. Then another friend arrived and we had an order of the Memphis nachos. A massive portion of chips that was more stuff than anything else. Delicious and a lot of it.

The food was awesome, the view of Bull Durham stadium was excellent as well! Unfortunately, on this evening we did not get the best service. My two companions had to go to the bar for drinks as the waitress didn't show up for 15 mins after we were sat. It didn't get much better from there. I always leave a good tip regardless, but I thought this should be known.

Visited tobacco road for the first time to see our daughter from Philadelphia today. The place was packed which was understandable due to a baseball game and show in town which our daughter explained may be the case. Nonetheless the service was exceptional and the food was above anything we expected (huge portions). Our server Ryan was very attentive and the busers who cleaned our table were also very friendly. Will definitely be back.

Layout is very nice! 25 TVs along 1 wall! Recliners, rounded booths, tables & bar areas. Atmosphere is awesome! Seating is extremely slow considering we saw 2 empty 4seat tables & 6 empty seats along the bar top. Entree options looks good. Tasted even better. Got the BBQ ribs with rice & black beans, and sweet potato mash. Wife got the Greek Lemon chicken with sweet potato mash. Both entrees were delicious! Definitely will be returning! Aside the slow seating, I'd have given 5 STARS!
