Very crowded on Sunday's but it's a cool spot to hang out at and watch the games. Inside and outside bar and seating area

Made regular visit to Selwyn near my son's college at Queen's University in Charlotte. Like visiting with my wife and son for the indoor/outdoor seating, craft brew choices and pub fare that included good choices with sliders, taco, pizza and varied choices of wings. Would love to try this for a football Saturday or Sunday. Only issue is the tight... More

This place is a pub. Do people get that? It's not a chain, it's not an exquisite dining experience, it's a pub! And a damn good one. Eat pizza and wings, drink beer, enjoy yourself and have a blast with your friends, if you have any.

This once great neighborhood spot has truly gone down hill. It still has the great neighborhood atmosphere but the service is horrific with lazy self centered servers that are more interested in talking to each other or looking at their phones than they are in serving their customers. The entire staff should be replaced. The food was terrible we ordered... More

Ok...this is a local place for sure. Not the cleanest, most presentable...but for my wife and I at mid-40's, it was pretty good. Upfront...do NOT expect cozy, it's comfy with not the cleanest furniture (we sat outside) or amenities...but the staff was friendly, the food was quite good and a fair selection of craft brews...Hop, Drop & Roll IPA is...

sports bar located on neighborhood street. seating on the outside patio and fun rustic pub seating.. many customers are students and young adults. the friends enjoy the environment and frequent the bar. not as popular when the weather is rainy. food is above average for a pub.

Agree wholeheartedly with other reviews that this is a friendly, most congenial and relaxed spot in Charlotte. A nice neighborhood pub to wind down with a drink and a bite to eat in the company of other happy people. Another reviewer said it is cheers bar of Charlotte. How true.

I would highly recommend stopping by Selwyn if ever in the Myers Park area. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is great. Wonderful place to watch the World Cup or other sporting events. Couches and lots of tables/etc. outside although it was packed!!!

I've been to Selwyn Pub about four times (to celebrate the end of exams usually). As a graduate student, this place is so convenient since it's minutes from Queens U. The outside seating area is really nice, especially when the weather is sunny. The food options are typical for a bar although I wish they had a few more vegetarian... More

It is, however, difficult to get accustomed to smoking in a restaurant. Living in the west, most cities have cut out smoking in establishments that serve food. The food is decent and Thursday nights are extremely busy!
