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.

    From the moment we entered the restaurant we were greeted by the most thoughtful hostess. Our waiter Lee was outstanding. He gave us ample time to look over the menu, we ordered the oysters Rockefeller, my husband commented that they were the best he had ever had. We ordered a salad, and the salad dressing was amazing! The medallions and lobster tail were cooked perfectly and the Yukon potatoes that came with it were whipped to a buttery perfection. We can't' wait to go back. It's a hidden gem in Cornelius, I can't believe this was our first time finding this restaurant.

    Food and service were stellar. If there’s any drawback it’s just the ambiance is a bit diner-ish. A strip mall restaurant with food this great deserves a different setting.

    Service was mediocre. Hostess was not seating clients based on reservation time, but instead based on arrival time. It’s a value restaurant. Definitely wouldn’t recommend for fine dining.

    Went to Choplins from a recommendation. It was good but not great. First it’s located in a strip center. And although they’ve done their best to make the ambience upscale, it’s still a strip center next to a brewery. Food was good but not great. Service was very good. It seemed a bit over priced. Our bill for $200 with tip for two people was a bit much. We had two apps, one salad and one entree. My husband may have had a drink or two. I think two. For the ambience (located in a strip center) it’s unlikely we will return. There are a few other restaurants I feel for the money are better. On the Nines in Mooresville, Fork and Barrel in Cornelius to name a few.

    Good food and the service was great. Too bad the restaurant doesn't have a bigger, better bar area so you can have a cocktail while you wait for your table. Overall a nice place to eat but it's kinda pricey.

    Choplin's always delivers. The service is always brisk but the overall experienced remains unrushed. Every dish on the menu is a winner but my wife and I are both partial to the 16oz. ribeye steak which is always cooked to perfection. If you are a fan of French Onion soup their bourbon flavored twist is an absolute must.

    Tori was our server, very sweet and attentive. Service was sort of slow, but not in a bad way - we were talking and chatting and enjoying our time so it was paced just fine according to our needs. Was surprised at how small the bar area was. Shrimp cocktail was delicious as was the steakhouse salad. We all ordered the medallions and for the most part everything was prepared to our liking but some of the medallions were a little over cooked (not terribly to the point that we couldn’t eat them). Creme brûlée for dessert was delicious. Tori did great at recommending appetizers and desserts!

    I had the sea bass and it was ok. It wasn’t cooked evenly and part of it was hard to cut this seemed like it should have been better for $51. My husband had the filet and he enjoyed it. The service was pretty good. She did fill our water glasses with lemonade instead of water once. The last time we were there about 1 year ago we raved about everything. Unfortunately, that was not the case this time.

    Choplin's never fails! I'm a regular for lunch and had forgotten how fantastic dinner is. Porkchop - perfection, salmon - supreme, crab cakes - can't beat 'em. Brussels - best anywhere (I know, I'm pretty sure I've tried everywhere :-))

    The food is excellent. We have a new-ish server who was being trained. I felt he did a great job while following the directions of his trainer, which can sometimes slow things down. My only complaint, but it’s not enough to keep me from returning, is the decor is outdated. Feels like 1990’s home interiors party blew up in there. But the excellent food, will return and soon!

    Didn’t get seated until 40 minutes after our reservation which wouldn’t be a problem if they had bar with a bartender like every other restaurant. My steak was rare when ordered medium and didn’t realize I had to ask for bread (server said they stopped automatically providing during Covid). Not an impressive first time at this restaurant.
