    1. Charlotte has many, many excellent restaurants.. You might want to do a search and get some ideas, or post more details about exactly what type of food you are looking for, where in Charlotte, etc. Charlotte also has a lot of steakhouses, none of which I have any experience with. They include Beef and Bottle, Morton's, Del Frisco, Ruth's Chris and BLT Steak.

      I apologize for the rudeness of some of the other posters.

          I did hear Morton's is a good place. Maybe I'll go by this weekend.

            The Morton's in Charlotte is the same as the Morton's in Cleveland. But Beef and Bottle is a one of a kind experience. Give it a try!

        2. We also have Sullivan's and Capital Grille but I highly recommend Beef and Bottle.

            Beef and Bottle is like a step back in time. Very much an old school steakhouse. The exterior leaves a bit to be desired but the food is good. It has been a long time since I have been but I seem to remember they are also known for their salad dressings.

              Love the salad dressings in those old school attached metal bowls!

          2. for steaks I like BLT the best (of the upscale steak houses). I just like the way they prepare their steaks better than the others.

              Comparing BLT Steak to Beef and Bottle is a bit like comparing Brigitte Bardot to Bea Arthur.
              Even if its Bea Arthur with good salad dressing and cool retro dressing crudites bowls.
              B& B has a retro iceberg salad with good dressing and a Harris teeter quality steak. BLT Steak is a serious place with serious beef and they charge serious money. The best way to dine at BLT is as a guest.

            2. I was underwhelmed by BLT Steak - but I'm not a big fan of hotel restaurants or the high end chain steak restaurant concept either. Nor do I care for an a la carte menu. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there and dinner was the least favorite of all the menus. The prices are through the roof too. There are far better steaks in this city. I just assume go to Firebirds, 131 Main. But Beef & Bottle is a throwback, old school steakhouse - give it a try, OP.

                I only ate there only once. It was for dinner and I was whelmed. The ribeye was a fine piece of beef, IMHO a cut above what is served in the other "high end" steak places which I do not care for. The Ribeye was magnificent. The prices are stupid high and yes as you said everything is ala carte. As I mentioned in my previous post the best way to dine here is as a guest.
                At Beef and bottle the salad and the retro atmosphere were nice. At the Ranch House which was not mentioned yet the shrimp cocktail has the best cocktail sauce EVER and great blue cheese dressing, but the steaks at both did not do anything for me. For me and if I'm paying I have to agree with you on Firebirds a tasty steak and it doesn't break the bank.
