Charlotte Street Grill question - Asheville

Ok, got a card in the mail to go to Charlotte Street Grill and Pub for discount meal. First of all, I had never heard of it. I'm not Asheville expert by any means, but know many of the restaurants around there. Never heard any hounds mention it, so figure it's definitely not a top contender. Did a search here and didn't find anything. Searched Trip Advisor and old recs are horrible, new recs are mostly very good. Is it under new management or something?

So question is.... IS it any good? Not talking major wow factor, but good enough to take advantage of a discount? ($50/couple includes: 2 tapas, 2 salads, 2 entrees, 1 dessert and $10 off a bottle of wine)

  1. It used to be and is still referred to buy us locals, as "Stephens Pub" or just "'Th Pub".Upstairs is a more upscale (not fancy) setting than the downstairs.If you have a gift card, I would by all means use it.Whatta ya got to lose???? Last time I ate upstairs was pretty darn good.

      That was sort of my thinking. And yes, it is for upstairs. We do have to pay the $50 of course (it was one of those mass mailing discount things vs. a gift cert), but it seemed like you got a lot for that price. So even if it was only decent, still not a bad deal.

          am embarrassed to say we haven't been yet (our fall through New Year schedule was nuts!!). :-/ I'll have to check the card (it was one of those things you get in the mail as an ad) to see when it expires. I am still curious, but there are so many great restaurant choices out there, we just haven't gotten to it yet. With income being much tighter these days though, a special certainly sounds even more appealing! I'm glad you have reminded me of it and I'll be sure to report back!

            Well, shoot. just looked at the card again and it said it expired at the end of November. :( I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for another one and this time USE it!
