Steakhouse
Chef, Wes Choplin, trained at the prestigious Culinary Institute of Amercia in Hyde Park, New York and has vast experiences at Harris Grill, the original Fusion Cafe and Jeffrey's.
Fresh fish delivered daily from Charleston, S.C. and special deliveries every week from various places around the globe and always fresh. With Soul Warming South the focus, much of the menu will reflect the fresh seafood, such as Seared Diver Scallops, Sauteed Carolina Shrimp to Sashimi Tuna. "People talk about the concept of fusion, and putting together uncommon combinations with different ingredients, as well as techniques, that you'd normally think of as seperate," Choplin says. "That's what I love to do".
This will be the place to bring your family, friends, and loved ones to relax and enjoy every leisurely minute with every scrumptious bite.

    The food was as good as usual. Service was very slow. It took at least 45 minutes to get our order. Th server was nice but seemed to forget everything we asked for, such as lemons, more tea, take out containers, etc. This had never been my experience in multiple visits to this restaurant. I will certainly visit again but have to say I am a little less likely to recommend to others after this experience. Best dishes are turkey (the special on Thursdays,) fried squash, broccoli casserole, sweet potato casserole and the homemade biscuits.

    Went to celebrate my wife's birthday. Banana Foster was listed on the menu board. We love it and have not had it for years, so we ordered. After bit, Julie our server came back to apologize, as there were no bananas! We thanked her and said it was not a problem, although we were a bit disappointed. Later Julie came back to our table with a creme brûlée that she said was from her. That was a very thoughtful act that wiped out our disappointment. Alll in all, it was a very nice dinner.

    Not usually a leaver of bad reviews, but we went based on the reviews, so wanted to give a real review. The place had a fishy smell when we entered (that we eventually became accustomed to). The decorations are real strange…lots of curtains. We had to wait 25 mins after reservation time to get seated (and we checked in 10 mins early, so 30 minute wait yet we had a reservation), the hostess was also working the bar and prepping tables (seem short-staffed), and they were out of the best things on the menu. So it wasn’t great. Food was decent though, but not incredible.

    Had high hopes but was definitely disappointed. Hostess gave us a good table, but it’s pretty crammed in there. We were very hungry going in and it took awhile to get a waitress,and the appetizer took 35 minutes!! I thought I was going to pass out. We inquired multiple times. She said the kitchen was slow. This was an APPETIZER. My husband had the crab cakes, which were very good. I had the large grilled Caesar and French onion soup. The Caesar was soggy, had zero taste, and definitely not grilled. I had to send it back, and it was my main meal. The soup was excellent but by this time, I was still starving and it had been close to an hour and 1/2. I don’t know what happened, but it was a very poor experience. We are foodies and eat all over Cornelius, Davidson, etc…. The waitress was younger and maybe less experienced? Choplin’s always has mixed reviews, but we know of the owners and REALLY wanted a good experience. Disappointing at best.

    The interior has been refreshed since we were there last time. We had a reservation and our table was ready on time, service was excellent and food quality and speed were excellent. These folks do a very nice job and always great to support a local business. I would highly recommend for a quality meal with excellent service and quiet atmosphere.

    We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time and waited 45 minutes to be seated. This was our first visit and it was Valentine’s Day so I’ll give a pass for the wait time. The food was excellent, service good and nice atmosphere.

    This was our first visit to Choplin's. We had an 8pm reservation, but were not sat until 8:32pm. Unsure if the restaurant was understaffed but it was apparent the host was cleaning tables, re-setting, and seating. Food was delicious however. Started with the french onion soup and burrata salad. For entrees, I did the scallops and my spouse, the francese chicken. Server was pleasant, but slow. Would be open to trying again sometime.

    My wife and I had a reservation for dinner at Choplins to celebrate our 37th anniversary and Valentines Day. Upon arrival, there were people waiting but we were promptly seated. After a rather long wait, a member of the wait staff came to our table to inform us they were understaffed and to please be patient. Patience began waning after waiting 20+ minutes to be served our drinks which were not from the bar. We had to ask for bread and were told they don't automatically serve bread as patrons tend to waste it. That's a strange policy. Bread is a staple at dinner at a nice restaurant. We ultimately each order filets that finally arrive after a long wait. Both were tasteless and mine (12 ounce) was well overcooked so I basically wasted $57 on a steak that would have been better at Texas Roadhouse. The entire experience seemed chaotic and frenzied as the wait staff worked hard to keep up with demand. I'm disappointed our special occasional was diminished by the sub-optimal dining experience we had. I know Choplins can do better and has in the past but this most recent experience left a lot to be desired.

    I will say the food at Choplin's was delicious. However, our visit to Choplin's certainly went at a leisurely pace. We had a reservation at 7:30 to celebrate my mother's birthday. Although we arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and the restaurant didn't appear to be very crowded, we did not get seated until almost 7:45. Working in the service industry myself, it was clear to me that the restaurant may have been operating understaffed. That being said, we didn't receive our drinks until almost 40 minutes after being seated, and our appetizer didn't arrive until over an hour after we had been seated. I work in an extremely busy restaurant myself, so I understand being spread thin but to me, it didn't feel like the restaurant was crowded enough to warrant the leisurely pace regarding the steps of service, especially for the price point. I picked Choplin's for my mom's birthday not only because of the rave reviews but because I thought we would wrap up dinner by 9 pm, as it was a work night for our party. Sadly, we didn't leave until well after 9 pm, since our meal didn't land on our table until well after 8:30. When our food did reach the table, everything was delicious, but our server Eric could have put more energy into communicating with the table throughout the process. The restaurant was small & quiet, perfect for an intimate meal, but the pace and level of service did not match up to the final price point.

    Food was great. The second entree took a long time because the waitress misheard my order, so my spouse ate without me. My food was worth the wait, however, they did make up for it and we are very pleased. Porterhouse and lamb chops were delicious. Premium meats and fine dining at its best.

    Really enjoyed our time. Sat at the bar until our table was ready and had a drink. The owner’s wife helped us as we really enjoyed talking to her. They had a basketball team in the smaller dining room that slowed the service down, but it was fine with us. We had quests from out of town and really enjoyed taking our time. Food was wonderful as always. The staff makes you feel right at home b

    Food and Service was very Good! Although they tried to charge for the people who didn’t come in my reservation when I was at a table that accommodated 9 people and 7 came. The rest of the seats were full and the restaurant didn’t lose any money. I didn’t like that part.

    My wife had a luncheon at this restaurant with her group of women. She really liked it, so we decided to try dinner. The food was hot and well prepared, but the taste didn't lice up to the cost. I would rate it a 4 out of 5, when I was expecting a 5 out of. The service was OK, but very slow, all the way from getting served to getting the bill. Good restaurant, but for the money expected more.

    Went for outing as I’ve been here many times before, was informed when trying to pay I wasn’t able to use my purchased coupon I’ve used at the same location before multiple times. Great food just would’ve been nice to actually use what I purchased and that brought me back to the restaurant again.

    Choplin's is a hidden gem in an area replete with restaurants. It exceeded my expectations for vegetable choices with an outstanding broccoli casserole, delicious squash as well as fried okra and collards. The fresh catfish special wooed me away from the steak I intended to order. Delicious! We heard their desserts are all in house made, so we placed a to-go order. It did not disappoint.

    Choplin's isn't 5-star dining, but it is our go-to place for special occasions and date night. The combination of the well prepared food, understated yet comfortable decor, quiet environment and personal service make Choplin's a consistently great choice for us. In addition, the prices for food and wine are reasonable enough to go consistently. The servers are attentive and make you feel they genuinely want you to have a great experience (However, like many service industries sometimes they are a little short handed). Net, don't be in a hurry, enjoy your food, and you'll have a great night!
