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.

Overall, a great experience. The service was fantastic. Waitress was very friendly, knowledgeable of the menu, and attentive. The food was fantastic. I had the NY strip which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. It also seemed larger than the advertised size. My wife had the Salmon which was very good, the glaze on it was fantastic. I would highly recommend Choplins if you are visiting the Cornelius area.

Well for starters, the hostess Shar was extremely kind. I made reservations and arrived a little later than expected. She made sure we were seated in a very nice area and our waitress was amazing. The food was DELICIOUS and reasonably priced. Can’t wait to return !

The food was good but the service and atmosphere wasn't. The waitress was slow. My entree was brought out before I finished my salad. The atmosphere wasn't very good as it felt like I was in a strip mall restaurant (which it actually is) not a steak restaurant although the prices were like those in a higher end steak house.

Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed everything, From the appetizers to our meal.
I have to say that it was one of the best salmon dishes I’ve had out at a restaurant and I order salmon a lot. Cooked perfectly and a generous serving. We will be back.

First time to dine at Choplin's was this past Saturday night. It was an awesome experience! We needed a date night BAD, and Choplin's (and especially our server, Elizabeth) delivered in flying colors! Delicious food, impeccable service from Elizabeth, and cozy, quiet ambiance. Prices were to be expected for the superior level of food and service. We will definitely be back! They're a hidden gem just off the beaten path of W. Catawba Avenue in Cornelius.

OUTSTANDING!!!
Dined here for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. Excellent service, awesome steaks, great atmosphere and simply the best dessert we’ve ever had. And all on par if not less costly than other high scale restaurants in the area. This will definitely be our new goto place in the future for special occasions.

Went to a nice lunch with my family and we were all on a lunch break. Some of us had a more lenient break time which was handy because one of my guests had to box up her food as soon as it hit the table. The food took about 35 minutes from the time ordered which is kind of high for a lunch hour. The server was very unpleasant. She treated us like we were a bother but was very attentive to all of her surrounding tables. If the restaurant is not full, it is kind of apparent if you are treating your guests differently. The food was great though and the restaurant is so cute.

Choplins is our favorite nice Restaurant for so many reasons, Food being number one. I usually reserve via Open Table but this time it cancelled my reservation for some reason and I wasn't notified and when I came with my group to be seated they said thats how I found out and for a moment there didn't look like we were going to get seated, but the Hostess finally found a booth for us. Open Table needs to work the glitches.

We had reservations for 8 pm. We got there at 7:50 and were not seated for over 40 minutes. Once seated we did not have a waitress for another 15 minutes ... not even for drinks. Once we did get our drink order and appetizers ordered it took another 15 minutes or more to get our drinks. Another 30 minutes for apps to come out and then guess what our dinner too. So we sat there for ever and then they brought our apps and dinner pretty much together. So my food got cold while I tried to enjoy my appetizer. The waitress did not clear any of the dirty plates until the end. The food would of been nice had it been served appropriately. Very disappointing. Probably will not go back.

I love this place. The food and service are consistently outstanding. It is expensive but worth it. The Carolina shrimp is my favorite app. Get it every time. The steaks and fish are great. I have had salmon several times and my husband tried a sea bass special and loved it. They even have a delicious gluten free chocolate cake!

Our waitress was professional and friendly matched by the wonderful dinner. Loved the baked Brie and the wedge salad... the presentation of the lamb was beautiful but honestly a bit 2 much sauce for me overwhelmed the rest of the plate..... Overall a great evening

First time here driving up from Plaza Midwood and wasn’t let down from my already high expectations from my SO. Ambiance was excellent along with the service, which was attentive and super warming. Food was 10/10 from appetizers to entrees and the lobster bisque is so good, my girlfriend and I ordered a to-go order each 😋

We will be returning and I will recommend them to anyone that lives or visits the area!

Choplin’s is one of the premier dining experiences of Lake Norman and I would argue, “The Best”! If you want a high-level culinary experience in an amazing atmosphere, then this is your place!

Choplin's is most definitely the hidden gem of Lake Norman. Although it's modestly tucked in a shopping plaza, the food is far from modest. The menu is fantastic with tons of option whether you love seafood, steak, pasta or chicken. The apps are delicious, and I have had most of them. The desserts are all made in house and include the BEST coconut cake you will ever put in your mouth, along with tiramisu and key lime pie that are equally good. Everyone we have taken here absolutely loves it. Do yourself a favor and go here ASAP.

Food was delicious and hot. I Love the different weekday menu. It tastes like homemade. Those collard greens are to die for. The place is beautiful. Great place to meet up with friends and colleagues or take your client for a business meeting. It would be the ultimate place if it had a Mixologist!

The food and service are always outstanding at Choplin's. Love it! Yes, it is a bit pricey for entrees, but I usually leave with quality leftovers. I have also opted for an appetizer and salad and been very satisfied.
