300 East Ratings and Reviews
Our first experience here was very good. ...
Our first experience here was very good. Frankly, it would have been outstanding except for the fact that my salmon, ordered medium, was rare to medium rare. In spite of that, it was delicious so I didn't complain. My wife said that her crab cakes were possibly the best she's ever had, and she eats them everywhere! All in all, my rating might be a little harsh, even at "Very Good". I'd recommend this place to anyone without hesitation. Prices really aren't bad at all for the quality.

I'm honestly surprised how awful our experience was after all the good reviews. The hostess greeted us with a stained shirt for starters. Our server forgot half of our drinks and then came back saying that the bar had to make more bloody mary mix. Okay. It took forever to have our server come back to get our order. Is this what happens when you're seated on the second floor? Who knows. We never received our french onion soups. These were later removed from the bill (after asking) but no sorry or I apologize for the inconvenience. We were never asked how our meals were. Never asked if we wanted to place another drink order? Never asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu. The food was pretty lousy and the service awful. Truly embarrassed we took out of town friends here.
Hidden Gem in Rock Hill
Wanted a lunch venue with "a difference" -- found it at The Pump House ...Excellent customer service! Very nice lunch menu with something for everyone, and an overlook to the river -- what more could you want ! And they take lunch reservations ...don't miss this one, people!
Great food and great service!
One of the best meals I have had in awhile. Our server Melanie was so nice and had great recommendations. Will be back.

Two friends and I treated another friend to a "moving away" lunch....over all, great get-together...I'd not been to 300 East recently and had forgotten that it's a bit crowded and noisy! We were on tight time schedule and we ordered quickly after being seated....took a bit too long to get served....but I'll go again....

The service was attentive appropriately, the environment energetic; yet welcoming.

This was our first trip for dinner and what a delight it was! Our server was a treat, super friendly and courteous, in addition to being very knowledgable about the menu. I would highly recommend making a reservation. Dog friendly patio is a plus too!

A great dining experience! Food and service was fantastic.
Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent! Both the host and our server were very familiar with them I, made recommendations that were excellent. Our sever was attentive, but not overly so. I had been here multiple times for lunch, but never dinner. It was excellent. A very nice evening.

Mother's Day special
We have been to 300 East for the past 3 Mother's Day and all have been wonderful experiences. The food is excellent, the service has been great, and the attention paid to my wife on her day is wonderful. They go out of their way to accomodate our son (3 yrs old). The portions are large and always well prepared
A cut above in an ambient but casual setting
My wife and our adult daughter celebrated a late Mothers' Day lunch at 300 East, as the request of my wife. Our daughter is 100% vegan, which can be a challenge at some places but never at 300 East. The food is always excellent - everything 100% made in-house of the best ingredients, many locally-sourced. It is a fairly casual place, but the low lighting upstairs and the natural light coming through the large windows downstairs always make it feel elegant, in a way. 300 East never disappoints.
A Great Mother's Day
We had reservations. We did not have to wait at all. The food was great. My son liked it so much he asked to see a dinner menu. We will definitely be back for dinner. Our waitress Mandy was great. We didn't have to ask for anything. She brought us everything.
300 East - Nice place for drinks
We went for mothers day. I thought it was a nice place. Wonderful outside dining, but inside was a bit tight. The food was decent, well cooked and displayed I just wasn't a fan of the shrimp and grits.

Make a Reservation
The sunday brunch menu is amazing, make a reservation. we arrive they were packed but since we had a reservation we cruised right to a table. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was very nice and so was the server. I will definitely be dining here again and have already added it to my list of favorite places.

Hostess not very good
We made a reservation, I requested a booth. Upon our arrival, the hostess stated all the booths, which were empty, were reserved—we made a reservation. She sat us at a small table, I wasn't happy and we left. Never tried the food. The hostess is your first impression and experience when dining out. Couldn't rate the food or the rest of the experience as I was unhappy and left.

I visited this restaurant for the first time for Sunday Brunch. I tried the grits bowl and choose these different toppings. Next time I will try something different, I wasn't impressed with this item. The old converted house was really nice.
300 East - always a pleasant time!
I recently moved to the area and have been to the restaurant three times, the last time this weekend with a friend who is celiac. Your options for her were great and she was most appreciative. But always the food is interesting, the servers delightful, and I love how it's so multi-generational. And no one rushes you!
The Best- always
Hands down, 300 East is my favorite restaurant in Charlotte! I don't get to go often enough living outside the city, but special occasions and any occasions always call. Need to visit. Everything on their menu is good and they change it up a bit every now and then for variety. However, I only ever order one of two things- the Seared Ahi Tuna salad or The Usual- sublime every time. The apps are good and the desserts are too the few times I have splurged. But wait there's more- you can't leave 300 East without trying the ever famous Matilda Wong! Not into fruity delicious concoctions in your own little pitcher, the Mojitos are good too. I tend to stick with my favorites, but 300 East will never disappoint in service, ambience or food!!

The sweet potato ravioli is the absolute best! Never had anything that I didn't enjoy but that one is a standard we order every single time.
DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR LARGE GROUPS
I made a reservation 3 weeks in advance for a group of 10. The morning of I confirmed the reservation and added an additional person to the table. A few minutes before I called and spoke to the hostess letting her know we were running a few minutes behind and asking if we could pre-order apps for the table. She said no we could no preorder and that 300 East does not take credit card numbers over the phone. When we arrived 10 minutes late, they had given away our table so we were forced to be split up into 3 different tables. I spoke to the manager on duty, aka the bartender, and he told me there was nothing he could do and that it was their policy. I was very disappointing with how the situation was handled and we will not be taking our corporate business back there.

I had the brioche French toast and house potatoes. The reason I went to 300 East was because they were in the 10 best places to brunch in Charlotte. I'm honestly confused on how they made the list. I was not impressed. The French toast was okay, I was expecting more. Needless to say, I won't be going back. It didn't meet my satisfaction the way it was hyped up to.

Food was amazing, but was a really long wait. Service was outstanding. The booth was really uncomfortable for 4 people. It was a long time to wait for food in a very umcomfortable seat. The bloody mary was on point.
Always a go-to for a great dining experience!
I have been going to 300 East for more than 20 years. It is a definite go-to when you know you need a satisfying meal - whether it's brunch or dinner. You are always bound to run into someone you know. The staff treat you like family. My go-to items are the salmon, Ahi Tuna salad and the lamb ragout. The desserts are a definite must - share if you must. Great wine and cocktail selection. If you're a Charlottean, you already know of 300 East. if you are visiting, it is a must to dine here. ENJOY!
Service was terrible
drink orders--- a coke and a iced tea--and a couple of more- one glass of each should up halfway through lunch??? water glass refills--- had to repeatedly ask or not get any refills took forever to get food and my steak was not hot like normal---but room temp... Yall are normally much better- this is the worst experience at 300 I have had... Jeff Spivey
Very helpful, cheerful staff, delicious food.
The staff was outgoing, cheerful and helpful, and their suggestions were all very good. We were celebrating my wife's 74th birthday and thanks to 300 East, it was one of her more memorable!

Great location; convenient rail access. In a repurposed/renovated home which makes for a cool vibe/ambiance. We sat upstairs; would recommend that. Server was attentive and knowledgable of the menu and specials. We ordered the drink special that came in a small pitcher that contained enough for my wife and I to each have two full drinks (so good-tasted like a sweet tart). Food came out in a timely manner and was very good. We will be back!
