So how do you rate a restaurant that is rustic, hidden away on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood with no parking. Excellent. Rustic but not too rustic, dark but not too dark. This place is authentic, laid back with a real pub feel. The service is fast, the prices great and the food was all good. I tried... More

Location was so interesting in the middle of neat houses. We had the best seats in the house - A table for 6 in the front baywindow. Four of the guys fought over the 3 pieces of meatloaf that were left. They played rock, paper, scissors for it. The 3 winners loved their meatloaf so make sure you get there... More

Love the atmosphere and vibe of AM. Terrific service. Tough to get a table on Friday or Saturday but worth the wait and you can often get at least 1 seat at the bar. Food is good as well, but the overall experience is what makes AM special.

Made the wrong turn and boy are we happy! Delightful pub with character! Our waitress Vicki was fabulous. I am a collector of menus and she was able to get one for my wall of deliciousness!!!! The food was your typical bar food but a notch above...you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Another bonus, the neighborhood is... More

This former grocery store turned bar is fantastic! We were fortunate enough to be told by some locals about this out-of-the-way spot, not far from uptown. What a find! We were given the best seat in the house, a two person booth in the far corner where we could watch all of the activity. Our table server was outstanding and... More

In a modern downtown Charlotte of restaurants and bars ensconced in steel and glass towers, this central Fourth Ward pub restaurant in an old wooden house is a welcome change and worth the few blocks walk it takes to get there. It's clear it's a local Fourth Ward favourite so you may have to wait a while for a table... More

A standard in the old neighborhoods of Charlotte. This is a classic pub, and you may have a wait to be seated as locals start coming in late afternoon. Good food, good service, and a decent price awaits.

This was a very charming, warm and inviting place for a Holiday gathering of friends. The wait for a table was totally worth it. It was decorated so beautifully for the Holiday and I adored the ambiance. Our waitress was wonderful, prompt and very kind. She was also knowledgeable about the menu! I had the prime rib sandwich and it... More

My daughter and son-in-law took me to dinner for my birthday. My hamburger was great but the hit of the dinner was "what is it?", the restaurant's signature dish. Al Mike's is fun with great staff. One of Charlotte's mainstay eating locations. I highly recommend this restaurant.

After reading the reviews on Alexander Michael's, I thought my husband, daughter and I would check it out for lunch while visiting Charlotte. Excellent choice! I had the Reuben, my husband had the Turkey Club, and our daughter had the Tuna Melt. All of us had the Pasta Salad as a side. Everything was delicious, and my daughter and I... More
