Iconic Steakhouse serving the Lake Norman area for over 45 years. A 300 seat restaurant with full ABC permits able to handle large gatherings, such as, rehearsal dinners, corporate parties, birthday celebrations and more. Reservations not required. Open for dinner only Tuesday - Friday at 5pm, Saturdays at 4pm and closed Sundays and Mondays.
We've been to Lineberger's quite a few times for dinner. Parking is always easy. Greetings on arrival are very warm and friendly--no matter who's on the front station. Lineberger's is usually a busy place, but our presence appears special, and this is how it appears they want you to feel.
The wait staff has been trained, and can answer most menu questions without hesitation. Their menu is straightforward--Beef; however, selections vary, and to be sure, there are several worthwhile choices, especially the Prime Rib. They also have a well-appointed salad bar; and, of course, a delightful dessert menu. On the other hand, their wine list could be improved, offering only a moderate selection of red wines.
Atmosphere is casual--nothing fancy--"family style" more than over-the-top steakhouse....

This place is conveniently located right on the lake, even though it doesn't have a good view of the lake or outside dining on the lake. Average omelets for breakfast. Fairly priced. Service was average or better. Very busy on the weekends. Don't go if you are in a hurry.

For those few days we can 'sleep in', Butcher Boys offers an AWESOME breakfast buffet with ALL the 'fixins' - but also offers a full menu of specialties at crazy-low prices...and the quality is home-made goodness!

An online review told me that this place has brisket on Thursdays. I got there approx 5 pm on a thursday in early march and saw the sign for a brisket sandwich with fries for $6.95! Wow. and yes, please. Brisket is my favorite BBQ both because I love it and because it is a good test for BBQers. You can easily ruin a brisket if you don't know what you are doing. Unfortunately for me, the very nice counter lady and cooks informed me there was no more brisket. First they checked very diligently to see if what they had was enough for their current orders plus me. It was not. I JUST missed it!! They were nice to look without just saying no. I shifted to standard pulled pork sandwich and a cheeseburger. Standard pulled pork, i get mine with no slaw. They will also put BBQ sauce on it to order. Their sauce was a dark red/brown sweet but a little spice. The burger was cooked to order on the grill. Both sandwiches would fall into the "large" category IMO. No sides ordered so I can't speak to those, though I will be back on a Thursday in the near future to get the brisket, which is allegedly legendary. They advised to call ahead on Thursday to see if there is brisket left and to order ahead to reserve some before they run out. She said sometimes they run out before dinner on Thursday (as was my experience) and sometimes they have leftovers through Friday. Like most BBQ places in the carolinas they also have salads, chicken, burgers, fries, hushpuppies, onion rings etc. There were some good looking homemade cake and pie slices in a fridge up front. They also have daily specials written on a board up front. As another reviewer stated I would give this place 5 stars but I need to go a few more visits to check other items and consistency.

After stopping by once to try picking up a pizza to go (which was excellent!) I decided to go back and try the sit-down restaurant with my wife and daughter and it exceeded my expectations. Good real-tasting Italian food all around, reminded me of the excellent Italian restaurants I used to love when I lived back in San Diego, which were so much better than all these nationwide chain restaurants. We tried a combo platter with Lasagna, a Manicotti and a stuffed shell, all of which were incredible and smothered in melted cheese, but I especially enjoyed the thick lasagna that stays whole on your fork and doesn't melt into a gooshy mess when you try to cut into it. The wife also got a custom filled Calzone which she loved every bite of, and my daughter who usually never finishes her plate gobbled up a huge spaghetti and meatball plate clean in record time. We will be back for sure!

Amazing House Smoked Barbecue, good selection of craft beers and the nicest bunch of locals you'd ever want to meet.Dropped in for a late lunch and we're do warmly welcomed by the locals! They told us "to move into the circle" at the bar.....sit amongst them and talk just like we were family (only better cause they were mostly nicer than family)! Had smoked wings s Wednesday special. Huge, nicely smoked. Mac and cheese? Darn, I thought mine was great:(
The Boss Hog sandwich with ham, bacon, cole slaw and more smoked pork was juicy and delicious. Here's to Denny, Russ. Boston and the other Italian and a great Bartender! You made us welcome and "fed and watered us". See you Thursday. Denny? We want that Apple Pie!

We visited Savory Plum for lunch. It's a quaint coffee shop that has an edited menu of sandwiches, some soup, smoothies and salads. Most of our party ordered the pulled pork and said it was delicious. It was well seasoned and tender. The onion roll was a nice balance and not too strong - it tasted homemade. We also ordered the special (turkey on rye) and chicken salad. The Turkey on rye was also well done and tasty. The chicken salad was a little sweet for me. The service was fantastic. They were so friendly and made us feel at home! We decided on a few desserts and they did not disappoint. The chocolate cake was moist and perfectly balanced - great chocolate flavor without it being overload. I don't really care for chocolate cake, but now I do! We also sampled the chocolate cream pie which was also tasty. My son had the mini pumpkin pies and enjoyed those as well. We will definitely visit here again!
