Worth the Trip
If you’re willing to drive a little further, three of my favorite restaurants are located just south of Statesville.
In downtown historic Mooresville, you’ll find the Epic Chophouse. Their phone number is 704-230-1720. They have a very large room for rehearsal dinners. It’s also a fabulous restaurant for eloping couples in town who’d like a treat.
If you want the best seafood in the area (people from Florida come here for the seafood!), try Big Daddy’s of Lake Norman at 1162 River Hwy, Mooresville, NC. Phone: 704-663-4242.
If you love waterfront dining, travel to exit 30 on I-77 to dine on the shores of Lake Norman at the North Harbor Club. They have a large room for special events. Contact: Ron Blazek, Barry Handleman or Todd Offchiss Phone: 704.896.5559.
