A friend of mine moved down to Charlotte a couple years ago and always wanted to visit this restaurant because he heard only but good things about it. We all decided to go and SO HAPPY we all agreed on this. When we finally arrived the atmosphere was lovely and quite. It was a nice day that set the scene right. It was a bit of a wait but we all found chairs by the bar instead. The staff was fun, friendly and nice. No complaints at all. The foor was great. We had waffles, grits n shrimp, steak & mimosas. :) We already have that as something to do when we come back to charlottle ~~~>>>> Terrace Cafe'

Following the reviews here, we went here for a quick meal since it was close to the hotel. LUckily, we got here before the crowd (around 7pm) on a Saturday night.

What was right. A selection of local beers that were better than average. Nice portions: My wife had the crab cakes which had a nice sauce, but be careful with the dressing on the kale salad (hot!); I had the BBQ Burger: done correctly and served with fries. Wait staff and service was really good.

What was wrong. A very limited menu selection, and many items on the menu were done "creatively" (not against that but you take a chance if you are a visitor). The room was not cozy; seemed more like a place on a strip mall.

Made our first visit at the Terrace Café as part of the Charlotte Restaurant Week. We were quite surprised - had only stopped here for coffee and pastries when in a hurry in the morning. The dinner menu was an attractive selection of Southern eating, including 'chicken and waffles."
The biscuits served with sweet butter and/or a jalapeno spiced honey was a real surprise. Great wine selections. The atmosphere was a bit open and not what I would consider romantic. Service was great.
We will return and probably try the Sunday brunch, also.

The ambiance was nice and the cocktails were delicious. However, the food was nothing better than a regular burger joint. The crab cakes were seasoned with LOADS of salt as was the spicy kale grilled cheese. Overrated.
