We ate here on a Wednesday evening & the place was rocking! A casual pub-like
atmosphere with a huge bar on the main floor as well as on the upper level. In
warmer weather, they have a rooftop seating area with one of the best
dining views of the Charlotte skyline. The food is creatively presented & Southern
comfort food comes to mind, but with a very positive twist. Farm to fork is
practiced here, with heavy support of the local growers.

Appetizers include 'Devils on Horseback', with the traditional dates replaced by figs-yum!,
and a small bowl of bourbon baked brie with lingonberry preserves, apple compote, &
crusty bread. Our mains were a St. Louis style baby back fall off the ribs with bourbon BBQ sauce & collards plus a dish called Peculiar Pork- with a side of creamed sweet potatoes, roasted brussel sprouts, & fluff topped with praline nuts & a cranberry/sweet pepper agrodolce. If you've never had pork belly, this version is off the charts. You need to get your rear-end over here-NOW!! My hats off to Chef

Just had to weigh on on the Mac-n-Cheese w pulled pork....ok so we brought two orders home. 'Nuff said

Bahn Mi sandwich is well seasoned and pickled veggies add the right spice and crisp.

The food we had was above average -- a try brisket sandwich and the chicken-and-waffle. But we just couldn't relax and enjoy the evening because of the skitzy decor/seating and the too-loud, hard-surface surroundings, with made it impossible to talk across the table.

Tried this restaurant with a local Groupon and so glad we did. Already looking forward to a return visit to the rooftop section in nice weather. Has a great view of uptown. Food is really good - have never had chicken and waffles before and tried it there - great! Appetizers and desserts are wonderful too. Thomas, our server, was perfect - lots of suggestions, and attentive. Some unusual menu items that we are going to try - definitely will be back

I visited the Pecuilar Rabbit for the first time last week. Their top level patio is gorgeous and has a fantastic view of the city skyline. Good service, good food -- we only had eggs & asparagus so I can't speak to all the food, but it was delicious. Drinks are a tiny bit pricy but nothing that I didn't expect. Overall good atmosphere and I would go back. Great date restaurant.
