What You'll Get
Humans are the world's third-leading consumers of seafood, beaten only by the cocky, showboating sperm whale and bears with waders and cast nets. Help humanity even the score with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $60 worth of pelagic fare and drink at LaVecchia's Steak & Seafood, located in Uptown Charlotte.
Dive into the flavor ocean with LaVecchia's extensive menu. Surf-and-turf appetizer options include the tips and grits (grilled tenderloin with gorgonzola, caramelized onion, and red-wine shallot gravy, $8) with a half-dozen fresh blue point oysters ($12). Then set your sails for the house specialties, such as a Carolina Crabcake dinner (two cakes with seasonal vegetables and buttermilk whipped potatoes, $26), the stuffed jumbo shrimp, loaded with lump crab and boursin cheese, along with vegetables and buttermilk whipped potatoes, bacon, tomato, basil, and lobster beurre blanc ($24), or the USDA-prime 20-ounce bone-in ribeye, seared to marbley perfection and served on a bed of pure joy ($37).
LaVecchia's open-space ceilings, ocean-inspired décor, and huge dining area make it a perfect choice for large gatherings of strangers, coworkers, or deer herds to dine and sip wine, like a glass of Kendall Jackson cabernet sauvignon ($10).
This Groupon is not valid during Charlotte Restaurant Week, and cannot be used with any other special offers or promotions. The Groupon is for dine-in only, and must be used in one visit.

- This family-owned and -operated business is celebrated locally as the best all-around restaurant and the best seafood dining room in greater Charlotte. – Frommer's
- A very fun, hip, high energy restaurant!! The art work was off the charts, very cool to see the custom metal and bronze fish sculptures hanging from above. The bars were busy, the service was very good, obviously the place where the beautiful people go!! – CharlotteOlivia, TripAdvisor
- The fish here is both varied and delicious. Everyone at my table was completely satisfied and delighted with what they ordered. The halibut special came with an amazing sauce and flaked off on your fork. The sea bass also was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. – citycrab, Citysearch
