3 Kickin’ Ways Horsefeathers Roadhouse (HFR) Rocks Lake Norman

HFR building and bikes2It has been said there are two kinds of people around Lake Norman; those who are Southerners, and those who wish they had lived and loved here forever! Legend has it that everyone gets their “happy on” with our delicious Southern BBQ cookin’, which is why patrons of Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Sherrills Ford and around Lake Norman return again and again for our famous North Carolina made from scratch specialties.

Here at Horsefeathers, not only does Donna Melton, our very popular General Manager, and her team provide outstanding food, service and drinks the Southern way at HFR – their easy going brand of hospitality totally rocks from Statesville to Monroe!  We are mighty happy to “kick excellence up a notch” for our guests on a daily basis in order to keep the smiles coming.

Horsefeathers Roadhouse offers three kickin’ ways we rock other bars and restaurants around Lake Norman and Greater Charlotte:

  • There is nothing ordinary about our menu: When it comes to menu items here at HFR, there is absolutely no settling for run of the mill anything. We smoke, caramelize, bread, blacken, hand pull, toast and grill everything on the menu by hand. We are always house smoking quality food. Whatever it takes to serve up the finger lickin’ specialties for which we’re famous throughout the Lake Norman area.  HFR is exceptional and it doesn’t end with basic meals. We also dress and sauce up the menu choices before serving them exactly the way everyone in the place wants them. We offer twelve different BBQ sauces ranging from sweet, spicy and tangy and they make everything on the menu memorable. 
  • Thirst is top priority at our bar: Crave a cold oneWhether you’re travelin’ by Harley, Honda, Indian, Jeep, convertible, pickup truck or RV, or hot rod, pull into our spacious Horsefeathers Roadhouse parking lot and come right on in.  With bars on two levels, we’ll knock your socks off with our outstanding selection of fresh draft beer, craft brew, wine and liquor products.  Sweet tea is always a favorite, too.  Here’s lookin’ at you friends!
  • We put the WOW in food, drink, fun and local entertainment: If you prefer not to be prim and proper and want to thoroughly relax while dining out, see what our BBQ Roadhouse has to offer.  HFR is a let-down-your-hair and rock out kind of place!  Hang out at the bar, dine casually, unwind in our game room, or get your groove on to country western or Southern rock at our weekend live music events.  Our 2,000 square foot dance floor serves as a dining room when live music is not performing live on stage. It’s official. May and June make early summer the season for live music on the deck – how sweet is that! Great weather here we come!

In short, we’re all about “kickin’ excellence up a notch” for our patrons at Horsefeathers Roadhouse.

We offer laid back relaxation, Southern style, with incredible food, the best service at the Lake and the Northern Charlotte region and provide excellent value for the buck.  Consider us your second kitchen for those days you just don’t feel like cooking.  We offer serious BBQ, Southern specialties, icy cold beverages, and a fun view. One more thing, the entire staff has majored in fun for years! Let’s share some the next time you drop in! Good food, good times, good fun; it is happening at Horsefeathers!


Don’t forget to check out the monthly events calendar on our website for specials and entertainment. Also, note that in the summer and fall months we have live music four nights a week: Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays!
