Absolutely fabulous. Didn’t have any expectations going in. We were thinking normal wine bar with small plates, but I don’t drink wine. I did know they had a cocktail menu, so I would be ok. The portions are very generous and the staff were very...helpful and knowledgeable. Meatballs were fantastic! Perhaps top three I ever had. Stuff mushrooms were also great and even though I was full, found room for the house made apple tort. If you are in town, skip the shrimp and grits and come enjoy this place.More

The food was good. Unique. They are small plates so if you’re a big eater you should consider that. A lot of the seating is more casual layed-back style. The service was excellent. The prices are high. Wine is $3.50/oz. Minimum, most are more expensive.More

The wine was delightful, but that I expected. Everything else far exceeded expectations. The charcuterie was incredible, particularly the elk and dried blueberry salami and the whiskey cheddar, which matched so well with all of the tasting accompaniments. The grilled chicken sandwich … truly, calling...it a grilled chicken sandwich does it a disservice.the bread is high quality, the salad is a French vinaigrette on greens layered heavily onto the sandwich, the bacon is scrumptious, and the chicken — the pulled chicken, low country-style, is so tender, juicy, and flavorful. I will never be able to eat a grilled chicken breast on bread again. To top it all off, an acoustic guitarist and singer was performing live at a volume that added to the energy but allowed conversations to continue. Walking the length of King St afterwards, he was the best act we heard. In short, if you can get a reservation at Uncork, do it!More

Determining that standing in line for chicken & biscuits on King Street was so not worth it, wandered into this quaint wine bar. What a fabulous find! Cocktails and charcuterie were superb! Self-dispensed wine selections were great. You have a choice of 1, 3 or...6 oz pours. Chatting with the owner was fun. He was well versed on all of the wine selections. My advise is to forget the chicken and enjoy the charcuterie and wine next door!More
