“A perfect experience”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

On a Thursday night met a friend: nice atmosphere, very good service. We had a large variety of food...potato skins were as good as I've ever had. Everything was homemade and no mushrooms in the lasagna :-) We saved room for very good chocolate cake. Will definitely go there again. Dinner, glass of wine and dessert for a little less than $20.

“ok food.”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Stopped in from out of town for a quick bite. The service was ok, but we did get our food in a very timely manner. It wasn't the best, but it wasn't the worst. I would give it a second try!

“1 hour no food, rude service walked out”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Trying to find somewhere to eat when in town to visit. Went by reviews & was left frustrated, waisted hour and hungry. The rude waitress said the reason others got their food who came after us was they got sandwhiches. We got 2 wraps & a salad! Horrible, don't waste your time.

“delightful surprise”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

We were travelling through the area and decided to stop for lunch in Charlotte. We don't care for chain restaurants, so were cruising around looking for other options when we stumbled across the Gavel restaurant. Very nice inside, calm, quiet, tasteful but not stuffy. The waitress was personable and efficient. The menu had lots of selections, and all of our choices were great. We all tried each others' dishes and left nothing behind. We would definitely stop here again.
