My husband and I decided to have breakfast at Sunrise this morning. Sunrise is a diner with breakfast, sandwiches, pasta dishes, hamburgers, and dinner plates that are the home cooked style. It serves, breakfast all day, and is open for lunch and dinner as well. It is rather small and several of the booth seats need to be reupholstered. I... More

I have eaten at the Sunrise since it was a breakfast only restaurant and transitioned to an all day restaurant. We have not been in a while because their sanitation grade had dropped below a 94 and that’s my limit for eating anywhere; today it had a 98. Tonight I had the cured ham sub. The sandwich itself is good,... More

I know their clientele is older and on a fixed income and food has gone up on price but it has been cheapened so that the quality has gone. Time to rework menu with better food and adjust the prices. Have a... More

This restaurant is your typical older restaurant where you can order just about anything.....entrees, burgers, sandwiches, veggies, etc. My husband had fried chicken livers, fried squash and a salad. I had a patty melt and side salad. Everything was good and fresh and we would go back. This is just that type of "joint" that everyone loves to go to... More

I have been a customer of Sunrise Restaurant since1995 until 4/4/16. Horrible service in fact, none at all. Manager very unprofessional. Will not eat there or recommend to anyone. You can get better service and food elsewhere.

Consistently good food and service. We usually eat here at least once a week. The place is always busy and many locals eat here every day. The daily specials are always good as well as the old stand bys. This place has the best tossed salad in the city of Charlotte. The ingredients are fresh, wholesome and tasty. Also has... More

While not a particularly lovely place, the food is delicious, abundant, and a great price. They also serve breakfast all day, which I love. Staff is gracious and fast. Definitely worth a visit.
