Epic Chophouse restaurant downtown Mooresville

If you haven't had a chance to get to the newly opened Epic Chophouse in downtown Mooresville, I highly recommend it. The Chophouse is located where Soiree had been. The menu is american fare, steaks, chicken, pasta, seafood, but has a high end steak restaurant feel to it. I have eaten there several times now and think it's great. They have the right formula; charging prices that are reasonable for the area while providing an upscale feel. For example a 12oz Filet Mignon for $25.95 or a wedge salad for $4.95 price-wise competes with the Outback type restaurants but food- wise the Chophouse competes more the likes of Morton's, or Capital Grille. I suggest you try it if you haven't already. Also, love the new sign, great look for downtown Mooresville. Epic Chophouse menu.
