This was our first time to this restaurant. I get tired of all the chain restaurant offerings and wanted to support a local establishment. The food was excellent and inspired. I had lamb lollipops cooked to perfection, not always an easy find. Others in our party very much enjoyed their salmon. Our server told us the menu changes daily based... More

You can get anything from steaks, seafood to southern food at Choplins. I love the staff and the food is always delicious. The only negative I have is it it in a rundown shopping center but they have updated the best they could do with what they have but love the food and the owners! Recommend!

Visited with my son and his family to celebrate our birthdays. The restaurant was prepared with our table and met our every dining need. The food was excellent, prepared well, presented in an attractive manner, and most importantly tasting great. We had the scallops, wreckfish, lobster, and medallions of beef. All were very good. Service was professional, attentive and helpful.... More

All started with a front podium warm conversational welcome from owner Wes Choplin soon followed with the Ghost Merlot (Sonoma/Napa) with legs that were marvelous. The hot crusty soft crumb bread with butter soon followed, hmm, hmmm. Appetizing fried green tomatoes and 4 cheese purses (think cheese plate with fresh berries) with a blackberry glaze only stimulated the appetite. Had... More

Have only visited for lunch, but everything we have ordered has been very good. They have daily specials and Tuesday is fried chicken day. It is wonderful. Boneless breast fried perfectly with a cream gravy. They have a large selections of sides of which you can select two. Also plenty of salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Service is excellent.

Liked it. We started with the fried green tomatoes and pork dumplings. Both were very tasty. The entrees included chicken marsala and the NC mountain trout. All of us were pleased with our meal. The service and atmosphere were also good. It's a little strip mall area right off of Catawba Avenue in Cornelius. Plenty of parking in the outdoor... More

This is a diamond! Great food prepared fresh daily from local sources. The chef is creative but keeps the basics, like a great steak or filet, simple but cooked to perfection. Wait staff is knowledgeable and excited for you to try nightly special selections. Great wine list and desserts! Small, quiet, comfortable setting. Good for date night or night out... More

Arrogant manager and unresponsive owner. After trying to redeem a voucher for a meal that listed no exclusions the manager who agreed that it wasn't stated used a line that said they had to follow state and local laws which didn't allow the discount of alcohol. Seems a bit b.s. since a table stand promoted 1/2 price wine on Thursday... More
