The southside Vinnies is closed, but the Vinnie's on Williamson Rd. off I 77 is fun and right on Lake Norman - you can arrive by boat and dock right there. The oysters were good, the beer is cheap and the burgers are really good. Dress casually.
This one is the Vinnie's on South Blved. They have other restraunts as well but I haven't been to those. Thirty-five cent raw oysters and $1.50 beer specials make this a decent place to visit in Charlotte. Oysters are rather small but what can you expect this far from the shore! Pretty decent waitstaff too. A little rushed at times but still fairly friendly even then. Very small parking lot but many people park across the street and walk across.
Warning: Beware of bad drivers when crossing the street!
Great little joint. Sunday visit found us craving for their oysters but they were out. No problem, will return when supplies are ample. Beside, Anthony Bourdain preaches that one shouldn't eat seafood on Sunday as the last delivery is generally made the previous Thursday, good advice.
Depending on your expectations, this place may be for you, may be not. It''s a notch above a dive bar- on the small size, more of a glorified beer joint with a seafood theme. All the bartenders are young and female (I had adequate service), borrowing from the Hooter's standard. Good beer prices. I can only comment on what I had which was steamed shrimp and gumbo. The shrimp was from Sysco (confirmed via bartender), which is a food distributor, so if you're looking for the local shrimp variety, you're out of luck. Very bland in taste, previously frozen. The gumbo was weak, mostly thick broth with a few pieces of broken scallops. I think I saw one tiny piece of sausage. They definitely need to change that recipe. $5 for the gumbo, $18 for the pound of steamed shrimp. Monday nights they have an all-you-can-eat crab leg special at $30, which seems high so go hungry. The overall menu includes other fish items and also your basic beef and chicken, pub style. So overall, not a great place for shrimp/gumbo, maybe other items are average or above, likely a crap shoot.
