Raleigh restaurants

Looking for a culinary adventure right here in your own Raleigh neighborhood?

Our real estate agents can help you find it!

Raleigh homes for sale are set in a vibrant and picturesque city that's full of history. Explore a bit, and you'll discover some amazing stories. That's just as true of the thriving culinary scene. 

Raleigh's own "home-cooked" restaurant brands often have captivating histories of their own. When they're situated right in a historic building, that makes the ambiance even better. No matter if you're the world's biggest foodie or a history buff for the ages, you can have a satisfying experience.

Here's just a little taste of some of the best historical restaurants Raleigh has to offer:

  • Second Empire Restaurant and Tavern – 330 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27603
    Located in the historic Dodd-Hinsdale House (completed 1879), Second Empire Restaurant and Tavern is a thrilling combination of history, atmosphere, and gourmet cuisine. A rich, seasonal menu showcases local produce and ingredients, while the wine list is second to none. There's even an attached tavern – a lively spot for refreshment after work that functions as a "restaurant within a restaurant."

  • 42nd Street Oyster Bar and Seafood Grill – 508 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27603
    42nd Street Oyster Bar and Seafood Grill is a famous landmark restaurant that attracts visitors from all over the United States. From humble beginnings all the way back in 1931, it was once a simple grocery store that focused on oysters and draft beer. In 1987, it experienced a resurgence under the leadership of new owner Thad Eure, Jr., whose partners continue to lead it as a top seafood selection.

  • Poole's – 426 South McDowell Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
    Poole's bills itself as a modern take on comfort food, reimagining the classics with "creative, simple offerings, carefully executed." With a legacy that stretches all back to a 1945 founder's inspiration by Winston Churchill, it has recently returned to its diner roots under Executive Chef Ashley Christensen. You'll be surrounded by retro-chic charm as you savor hearty foods and a full selection of dessert pies.

  • Shorty's Famous Hot Dogs – 214 South White Street, Wake Forest, NC 27587
    Lots of places have "Famous" in the name, but Shorty's Famous Hot Dogs can point to more than 100 years as one of North Carolina's leaders in the classic American hot dog. Around since 1916, it pairs its dogs with good conversation and an intriguing history all within a short drive of Wake Forest homes for sale. Still led by the same family, it also has a range of sandwiches and burgers "grilled to perfection" and topped with all of your fresh favorites.

  • Clyde Cooper's BBQ – 327 South Wilmington Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
    Clyde Cooper's BBQ first made its mark back in 1938 and has been bringing in the crowds ever since. Recently announcing extended hours in response to rising demand, it is often open until the evening, sometimes running out of food early. Clyde Cooper's massive portions of smoky, satisfying meat are intended for dinner tonight and breakfast and lunch the next day, so you'll never go hungry.
