Dining Centered Around Your Tastes

At Brightmore of South Charlotte, you won’t need to leave the premises to find a wide variety of great dining options. Maybe you’re in the mood for Belgian waffles with fresh strawberries or craving the tasty comfort of Chicago-style pizza. Perhaps it’s fine dining you want, pairing a succulent rack of lamb with a big, bold Merlot. With meals served restaurant-style, you can indulge in the venue and menu you prefer: formal dining, casual pub-style meals or lighter fare from our own fresh market.

Every meal is prepared on site using the freshest ingredients to meet the exacting standards of our executive chef. Each day, our culinary team prepares savory pastries, sumptuous entrees and desserts, and beverages that pair perfectly with each meal while our staff nutritionist carefully evaluates all recipes to make sure special dietary conditions are considered. Special icons on the menu will help you clearly identify “Balanced Choices” for the health conscious, and should you require a modified diet to manage ongoing conditions, we are happy to offer a wide range of specialty menus to assist in meal planning.

But our dining program means more than great food. From themed meals and health promotions to wine pairing dinners and cooking classes, you’ll find many ways to please your palate while filling your social calendar. And you won’t have to stop entertaining after retiring to Brightmore, either. Catering is available to residents as well, meaning you can always celebrate with family and friends without lifting a finger.


Ardrey’s is an elegant restaurant-style atmosphere with a seasonally changing menu and Daily Special Items that brings delight to residents with each visit.  Special Menu Items will incorporate seasonal local items so that they become a meal with a story.

Kell’s Junction

Kell’s Junction is the go-to venue and the hub of activity for Brightmore of Charlotte. Open throughout the day, it enables residents to be flexible about their dining times and dining choices. Daily Specials are a regular fare. Comfort food, as well as delight items, are found at this location, and to keep variety in the environment, residents will enjoy themed meals, promotionals, and exhibition cooking on a regular basis. Lunch will include lighter items, soups, salads, paninis and daily specials. For dinner, residents will find casual fare such as Shrimp and Pasta, BBQ Plates and chicken entrees with a high level of regional appeal.

The Market

The Market provides all the essentials that a resident needs, from common convenience items and gifts, to ‘to-go’ foods such as fresh fruits, yogurts, bagels, muffins, etc., and sandwiches, salads, ice cream bars, and bottled beverages. The hours of operation make it readily available to residents between meals and throughout the day so that there is no need to add another off-campus chore to the list.

Private Dining Room & Catering

Brightmore of Charlotte has a Private Dining Room for the use of its residents’ and guests. This venue is used from time to time for special events outside of the declining dollar portfolio, such as ‘chef’s tables’ or wine pairing dinners. Morrison provides a catering menu for the use of the residents, but can also create an event from scratch to the taste of the resident.
