Description: Our approach is simple: Good food... Fine drinks... Friends & Family. These are the ingredients at Lotus. We bring them together under the same roof, and combine these elements into a memorable experience. Sound complicated? It's not. We begin with an incredible variety of locally-sourced products and imported fresh ingredients, searching far and wide for distinct local flavors, and bringing them home to our close-knit community. Here at the crossroads of the Carolinas, we set our sights upon presenting to you, our valued customer, a time-honored feast that we hope will evoke a long-lost meal, an eye-opening experience at a five star restaurant, or a favorite that you haven't even discovered yet. With signature cocktails made fresh from scratch, over 80 domestic and imported micro-brews, 40+ wines by the glass, premium sake, and rare, small-batch spirits, we stock a drink lover's library to quench your thirst. Our sushi bar specializes in traditional fare as well as creative signature rolls, serving only the freshest fish: raw, cooked, and everything in between. Our kitchen finds inspiration in classic American comfort food, bringing together a wide range of regional influences and culinary know-how to produce a modern twist on homespun favorites. With fresh catch specials brought in daily from the coastal Carolinas, and everything from prime steaks, all-natural free-range chicken, and house-smoked BBQ to jumbo lump crab cakes, shrimp 'n grits, and homemade pastas, we have something for everyone regardless of taste, appetite, or budget. We Love what we do, and know you will too.

Have eaten here several times. Once was on Mother's Day (had reservation fortunately as it was completely booked) they served a buffet that had more food choices than you would be used to at a regular breakfast buffet. We like to go to their Sunday brunch after church the food is always impeccably cooked and presented. The service has always... More

You must try the shrimp and grits or the tuna - you will not go wrong! They also have a great beer and wine selection.

I visited this restaurant with business associates. It took 15 minutes to get menus because" everyone arrived at once". The entree that I ordered wasn't available because I was given an outdated menu. I took the waiters suggestion and bought something that I wouldn't have chosen and didn't enjoy. There was a problem with my credit card and I arrived... More

I was looking for a bight to eat before visiting a friend. I stumbled across this little gem. I arrived at the end of their lunch, but the hostess graciously sat me. I was the only customer. I ordered the Spring Rolls and a spicy tuna roll. The food was excellent. The tuna roll was wrapped with mango. The mango... More

We had the best sushi and miso soup here. We sat at the sushi bar for dinner and the sushi chef is the best. The sushi was very fresh and the sushi chef was super friendly. Our waitress was excellent. She refilled our drinks, was very friendly, and did everything perfectly. We highly recommend eating here.

What a wonderful friend suggestion as I was taking some friends back to the Charlotte airport. We tried the sushi, flat bread, ravioli, and pot stickers and all were phenomenal. The bar area was nice and the bartender was extremely attentive. We will come back every time we are in the area.

The atmosphere was a little dull, but the sushi was really good. Overall, it's a very nice restaurant and I wouldn't mind going back again, but the food felt a little high priced for the quality and amount.

The evening fish special was a yellow fin tuna. It was cooked perfectly and had a delicious hint of curry which really enhanced the flavor. The sides of grilled mixed vegetables and jasmine rice were also just right. The watermelon salad was good, but would be better with a more zesty and acidic dressing. Atmosphere and service were great. Price... More
