There did seem to be a decent range on craft beers. I understand all ingredients are locally sourced. Salmon took a very long time to arrive. It was cooked ok and tasted fine but didn't light me world on fire. The rest of the group ordered pork chops. They all seemed to like. I'd be willing to try again but... More

Great spot, the menu is perfect. My only complaint is the size of the appetizers. When they are $10+ they should be able to be shared with a couple of people but they were really one person bites!

Kings Kitchen now has serious coffee and baristas making it! I love KK because of its mission. Seriously lacking is the city of Charlotte's helping the needy, homeless, street weary. But Kings Kitchen is doing their part and more to help those in need get back on their feet, working, becoming independent.

The King's kitchen serves great local cuisine and contributes strongly to community causes. They've got the Southern staples, see chicken fired, but so many other amazing choices as well as a nice wine list and local beers on tap. Service is friendly, personal and attentive. We ate here our first night in town and it was a pleasant introduction to... More

Went there for lunch for the express purpose of having fried chicken for lunch. The chicken was yummy and the collards were too. The only issue (a bit minor) but they needed a floating busser or two to keep up with drink refills as this food makes you thirsty. Very good overall.

Wanted a quick lunch while in the area for a conference. And we didn't want a 'chain' restaurant. We picked this one by chance and SO glad we did. Great food, great prices. We will be back.

My fiancé and I had lunch here for his birthday and loved it! Destiny was our server. She was sooo sweet, full of good spirit, and was attentive the entire time. She gave us great recommendations and was knowledgeable about the city. The restaurant was clean and comfortable. The food was amazing. I ordered the pot roast with mashed potatoes,... More

I was by myself and sat on the patio for lunch on a weekday. The service was terrible and the food was just average. I sure was disappointed.

What a nice surprise in the heart of Charlotte. This restaurant, with a mission to feed and give back to the community, is a first class farm to table dining delight. The ambience is wonderful, the staff incredibly friendly, and the food delicious. The more I hear about what the owner has achieved, the more inspired I become. Will certainly... More
