Description: A wonderful locally owned traditional New York / Chicago Chophouse in a historic Circa 1888 two-story building in the center of downtown historic Mooresville. The menu is quite diverse offering Great 30 day aged certified USDA Choice corn-fed beef, fresh seafood, pastas, salads and other house specialties. We pour a generous 8oz glass of wine, a true 16oz pint of craft beer and an unbelievable 2oz premium pour in all of our mixed drinks. Stop by and experience why our service and food have earned us the name Epic Chophouse. Reservations are recommended but not required. Please use the complimentary Valet right in front of the restaurant. The restaurant is open 5 - 10 pm Monday - Thursday, 5 - 11 pm Friday and Saturday, and 5 - 9 pm on Sunday. Brunch is served from 10:30 am - 2:30 pm on Sunday. The bar is open 4 - 10 pm Sunday - Thursday and 4 pm - 12 am Friday and Saturday.

It's not so easy to find a nice, classy place to have dinner these days, but Epic Chophouse delivers. With both downstairs and upstairs seating, a decent wine list, and an all-round great atmosphere, this is a great place for the date night dinner. Sitting upstairs is preferable, but ask for a table near the piano, away from the bathrooms. There is also a bar area with all of the sports games playing. I love this place and will return. Please, don't bring kids here. I got the Smokin Hot Couple, my date got the Medallion Flight, and we had Seared Ahi Tuna as an appetizer - all were fantastic. A bottle of Dr. Loosen Riesling went perfectly with our dinners. Finally, the Epic Black and White (chocolate and vanilla) six layer cake was divine.

We ate at the Epic Chophouse while vacationing on Lake Norman. This is an upscale restaurant that states on the front door that " Men's shirts must have sleeves." So dress up a little and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and service. All of our meals were great. We tried one of the specials which was an 8 ounce filet with bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp with garlic mashed potatoes. $36 The steak and shrimp were great, the potatoes were really garlicky! The pork loin chop was very moist when cooked medium as the waiter suggested. The potato cakes were a little bland, but the potato wedges were great! The Hawaiian Ribeye was fork tender and delicious. Also try the lobster bisque and strawberry shortcake cheesecake. You won't be disappointed!! Meals average $17-$40 each. Treat yourself!

We enjoyed Epic Chophouse for the first time yesterday to celebrate a birthday. The first thing that impressed us was the friendly and smiling staff when we arrived! Without exception, the greeters, bartenders and wait staff seemed genuinely happy we were there. The cocktail bar sparkled and the dining room was spacious and beautiful. Their wine menu is very good and our dinners were just great. Salads were ice cold, hot foods were piping hot. My salmon was perfectly seasoned and prepared as was my husband's prime rib. Everything came out at exactly the right time and our waitress was lovely, we didn't feel pushed. Don't miss the cheesecake, it is amazing!

One sign of a consistently great restaurant is locals who have been visiting for years. We had conversations with several last night who raved about Epic, and shared that they are never disappointed by the food and service. We will definitely be back to try more items on the menu, I feel certain whatever we order will be delicious. Thanks guys for making our birthday celebration memorable and perfect!

We had been before but only sat in the bar area. Tonight we had a table upstairs. Overall the service was good, we were ok to sit and chat. If that’s not your type of meal, I would think you might not enjoy as much. Server took our drink order, then came back to give our drinks, then came back and took our appetizer order and then came back to take dinner order. It made for a slower paced meal with everything paced out which I’m ok with. Only thing is drinks take awhile to get upstairs I think so don’t wait to get a refill. Food was great. No bread to start or anything so we ordered the shrimp special and a caprese salad. Table had a mix of steak, salmon, pasta and sea bass. All of it was delish and we really enjoyed. The portion sizes of the sides were good and everything came hot. We would go back again for sure for a nice meal.

If you are looking for a good steak, this is your place. I’m not an avid meat eater, but when I crave a good steak, this is the spot. The bread pudding is a delicious choice for dessert!
