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.

We regularly enjoy brunch at Lotus. I am partial to their Eggs Neptune. We have enjoyed special ocassions there, such as New Years Eve and wedding anniversaries there as well. Don't forget about their sushi bar, which is excellent as well. I have no shame in loving their coffee and regularly request a to-go cup!

Visited here for the first time with a supper club group. Was expecting slow service because of the large group, but was pleasantly surprised. Service was efficient and attentive. Food was excellent. My salmon was prepared perfectly and my husband was pleased with his crab cakes. Next time I might get adventurous and try some sushi - quite an extensive selection. Very pleased with the wine pairing suggestion and the wine was reasonable.

We have dined at the Lotus several times. They offer food options for everyone, including excellent sushi, organic and vegetarian/vegan options. We love the seasonal changes in menu. The salads are amazing. My husband loved the pork chop and also the fish dishes. I really enjoy the butternut squash ravioli and the soups are wonderful. The atmosphere is cosy and the staff very friendly and helpful with all your needs.

Tucked away next to Lowes Foods but this is classy. Excellent sushi. Quality service and delectable menu. Low key.

Way over priced. We ate there once and had to go to McDonald for something to eat. Small serving size and way over priced. Will not go back. I can find better deals around town.
