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.

Reacquainting with friends from 50 years ago. Ambience was great and the food exquisite . A great dining experience .Our dinner consisted of: : Sea Scallops, Salmon, Shrimp, and that wonderful Sea Bass. Starters were Brussels sprouts and the cola shrimp. Dessert was coconut cake that was amazing and worth every calorie!

Went for a special occasion with my girlfriend and we both ordered medallions and I ordered wedge salad along with lobster tail. Both steaks were over cooked and tasteless. Honestly the worst steak I’ve ever tasted in my entire life. I NEVER SEND FOOD BACK. Due to the price of $49 entree I did. Our server Jaime was very attentive and rectified situations and brought me out a ribeye. It was cooked correctly but was completely tasteless. Never once did a manager come to the table. Did not even see anyone besides two servers and hostess up front. For an establishment like this and the menu prices was extremely shocking honestly. Supposedly this place has been around for 11 years? I can’t be the only one who has experienced this.

Food was very good. We will be making another appearance in the future. Lightning was a little to low to read the menu. Tried new things our main courses were very good. Wedge salad was somewhat bland could have used Balsamic dressing, but like I said was our first time there so next time will request. Overall was a very pleasant experience

Great steaks and seafood creatively prepared but not in froo froo way. Would like to see more creative cocktails. We loved the gingerbread martini and the lavender/pear martini. Keep 'em coming!

We had a wonderful time. The service at Choplin's is always excellent as well as the hostess is cycling by frequently so service is always humming. Each bite is amazingly tasty and the chef accommodates special dietary needs.

Choplins offers a consistently wonderful dining experience. The food is always perfection from appetizers to dessert. The ambiance is relaxing and the service has always been top notch. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a special occasion dinner or a date night. Their menu has plenty of variety but is not overwhelming. One of our favorite places to go!!

Took the family to celebrate my birthday. We were seated in the side room which was quiet and private. Our waitress was terrific, very knowledgeable and knew exactly how I wanted my cocktail! Her recommendations were spot on for appetizers and main courses. And to top off the great meal we ordered three different desserts and passed them around. The hostess even came to our table, inquired about our experience, thanked us for choosing Choplin’s and wished me a happy birthday.

Dinner and desserts (yes, we had 4 different desserts) were amazing!! Especially the strawberry cake! Service was excellent and we could have a conversation with each other and understand what the other person was saying. It’s so nice to have a quiet dinner in a cozy and comfortable atmosphere with outstanding food and
awesome service. We will be back!!!!!!

The food and drink were fantastic! Hands down I would recommend this place. I had never been there before and I took myself out there for his birthday. I was very disappointed to see that they did not even acknowledge his birthday at all. Beautiful hidden treasure of a place though

Our first visit to Choplin’s was awesome! The food was fantastic and our server was so sweet and attentive. We each had a salad, the Wedgie and the Mother Earth. Both were SO good. We also had the beef tenderloin Medallions and the Halibut with corn collard greens and tomato stew. Again, SO good! This may easily become our favorite restaurant in the Lake Norman area.

Place was excellent. Food was great and service was even better. Our waitress Elizabeth was knowledgeable, friendly and really helpful. This was our first time at this family run business and we can’t wait to go back. My wife had chicken Marsala and French onion soup. I had lobster bisque and surf and turf. All was delicious we sat outside with blanket on cold night and the heater kept us warm. Thanks for the hospitality Elizabeth. We will see you soon.

Choplins is one of the best restaurants in Lake Norman. You are greeted by Char, who has been their since it opened. The service is great and the food is excellent—highly recommend the French onion soup and fresh lump crab cocktail for appetizers and the sea bass for an entree. KUDOS to Wes Choplin, owner and Chef, for opening this 5 star restaurant in Cornelius. Great for dates, special occasions or just as a favorite place to dine for locals.
