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!
This is a Hidden Gem, Great food and great experience!
This is our favorite dinner spot and Jeff always takes such good care of us! We look forward to our date nights at Choplins and love being greeted by Char! Danni is also a gem! We will never grow tired of the food or the service 🤍
Everything was delicious and service was great!
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.
Great date night. Nice staff and excellent food!!!
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!!
A cozy atmosphere, perfect for date night. The food was amazing, and the drink selections go beyond the menu! Tremendous service! 10/10
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.
Our favorite date night spot never fails to exceed our expectations. We’re creatures of habit and tend to order the same things pretty regularly here now,
Excellent Food,Excellent Service, Good Price
Such a great little place for Valentine’s Day! Food was great, server was very knowledgeable and took great care of us!
They did a nice job. Very nice checking on us and attending to our needs. Thank you!
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!!!!!!
Good date night. Amazing food. Lighting was a little dim but helped with the romantic setting. 5/5 would recommend.
It was our first visit and we will be back again. We really enjoyed the food, service and everything all around.
Always outstanding!! Thanks for another wonderful evening!
From the moment you walk in the door the entire experience is amazing!
Love going to Choplin's! Fabulous food and great service!!
Double date with friends and we had a great time. The food is different than other restaurants and always great!
First time going and could not have been happier.
Wonderful as always
Always a great experience
My wife had the sea bass and I had the salmon and as usual was perfect
Great hidden gem that we have been going to for years
Service was great also
The food at Choplin’s is always great.
Always amazing. We took my brother in law and his fiance here to celebrate their engagement. They also loved it.
Choplin's is by far my favorite LKN restaurant. The food is always excellent and good value for the quality and quantity! Elizabeth is a great server but everyone I have interacted with there are great.
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
Chef happily prepared decision vegan options at my request.
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.
