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.

    First time at this restaurant. We went for lunch. Food was ok. Unfortunately, nothing stood out to cause me to rush back. However, I will give the dinner menu a try in the future. Hopefully there will be better results.

    Loved everything about our Choplin’s experience. The service was outstanding, the food was faultless, the ambiance (the playlist!) and overall experience were spectacular. We’ve been touring Lake Norman restaurants looking for our “spot” and I’m pretty confident in saying we’ve found it- we will most definitely be back.

    Although our waitress was pleasant, she told us she was new and it showed. She brought out our 2 appetizers, salad, and 2 entrees all at the same time. Ugh. The Sea Bass was amazing as was the Crispy Shrimp appetizer.

    I usually don’t post not great reviews, but we were pretty disappointed. The vibe was loungey, which could have been good if the food wasn’t so mediocre and the cocktail menu wasn’t so small. The appetizer and drinks were good, but the mains and dessert were not up to par. The prices were really high and while you did get a lot of food, it felt like they were piling food and sauce to distract from the fact that the quality wasn’t good at all. When the dessert came out, which was touted as “homemade” and we got a soupy mess with whipped cream piled 8 inches high, that topped the night in a bad way (plus, it tasted like the ingredients were frozen remnants). It was like a bad chain restaurant. The service was also slow. The waitress was nice enough but we had to wait over and over. We were hopping for a new romantic spot, but we found a cheesy relic with overpriced everything and under delivery. I feel really bad posting this, but it just isn’t worth the money and I don’t want to see someone else make the same mistake.

    Always excellent experience at Choplin’s! Been going since they opened and have watched them grow and transform- especially the interior (think low lighting, velvet coverings, pillows) What stays consistent is the quality of food and the service. It’s what you expect from a higher-end restaurant. This meal was on a Thursday, but we were in the mood for something nice. Meat (steaks, lamb, pork chops) is always cook to order. Seafood is fresh (diver scallops are my favorite). Nice wine list and we’ll made cocktails. Don’t let the strip shop location fool you, Choplin’s is on par (and in my opinion, better over all) with the other nice restaurants in this area.

    First time here. There were several groups waiting to be seated, but it seemed that we all just happened to arrive at the same time. The wait for a glass of wine was very long, about 20 minutes, because they had no clean glasses. Really? We had the duck, the salmon, and the pork chop. All were excellent. Maybe we just caught them on a night when the dishwasher didn’t show up. Restaurant business is tough these days. That said, our servers were all very nice and friendly. We will definitely be back.

    The menu was good, however our service was not. It really took away from the fine dining experience. It was hard to get the waitresses attention, we had to flag her down (she literally just didn’t come). eventually we had to ask another waitress to just get us straws for our drinks. We Barely could make any request because she was moving so fast, and the few request we did make were accommodated by other staff members or not executed at all. I’ve got better service at a burger joint. For that price point, I was very disappointed in the service. Food was amazing but the service really put a damper on things. :(

    One of our favorite restaurants by far. Best lobster bisque EVER. We Love the duck and usually get that every time, but this time I had the filet medallions and they were perfect. Get your Groupon and head on over (with a reservation as they are always packed).
