$31 to $50
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.

We had the Turkey and dressing special. OMG! So amazing! The glass of wine was perfectly chilled and a generous pour. And I was shocked how reasonable the check was! A great meal! It was awfully dark though, perhaps a little more natural light in the daytime.

Food was very good and staff do a good job of making you feel welcome. The ambiance is a bit dated and the lighting could be updated

Went last night and couldn’t have been more pleased. The wine, food and service were excellent. We got lucky and the owner’s daughter was our waitress. Highly recommend this place!

We went to celebrate a birthday (which we indicated when we made the reservation). It was never mentioned during the dinner! The food is really good (the lobster bisque was very good). We both had steak (porterhouse and ribeye)….very picky about steaks and these were excellent. MY ISSUE WITH CHOPLINS IS SERVICE!! The hostess was not available when we arrived & then when we were finally acknowledged she took a call in the middle of greeting us. But worse was our server: inattentive and uninformed. Four desserts and she didn’t know what they were. When we told her about the birthday she was completely DRY and did nothing to try & make the evening special. She brought the check before we had a chance to ask for after dinner coffee or anything else. For the prices I expected sooo much more! Was checking Choplin’s out for another special occasion but they have now been crossed off my list. Disappointed!

Wide ranging menu. A little bit of everything for everyone. Our party all chose different dishes, and they all came out perfectly done. My strip steak, medium-rare, was tender, with a perfect chew. Succulent beef taste, and a very nice portion. This was our first visit, and we certainly will be back.

The French Onion Soup hot and very tasty - despite not seeing any onions in it - and enough for the two of us.
The 1/2 Duck entrée was absolutely delish!!

Consistently good food and a good wine selection. They might be suffering from the labor shortage a bit, but it made for a relaxed meal.

The meal and the service were outstanding. The portions are very large so, while it may seem expensive at first glance, it is a very generous serving. They were also nice enough to split our meal for us when we opted to share an entree. It's a bit dark on the interior, but very pleasant and not loud despite being crowded. We will definitely come back and it's a place we will keep in mind for a special occasion.

We were sat 30min past our reservation time, steaks were over cooked and for the price of the meal just totally missed on expectations.

Traveled thru NC for 20 years. Never explored up near the lake but will definitely go back to Choplin. Food, service was some of the best ever. I just wish I knew the secret to such tender filets.

For the money, the food was very plain. It wasn't horrible, but it also wasn't worth what we were charged for it. it seemed like the restaurant was trying to be more upscale than it actually was, which made it worse - in experience, ambiance and in food.
