The Shoppes at University Place
This is a very fine place in the university city area. t has many different restaurants that fit the mood and most of the staff in these restaurants are very friendly. The food is amazing and they view is just as good. As a university student, I didn't know many places to go to on the weekend when I wanted to spend some time out. This area was recommended to me by my roommate and we when there for dinner. The food was amazing. And the experience was just as good. Right after we finished our food we went shopping in Plato's closet, it is as they say in the ads- a good place to get cash back for stuff you don't need anymore. I had alot of fun that day, and now this my favorite spot in all of Charlotte. I highly recommend the food here, you will not be disappointed.
There are several places to eat here. My favorites are Zapata's and Boardwalk Billy's. Ninety's Sandwiches and Ice Cream is pretty good too. Parking isnt too bad most of the time but can get very busy at the weekend between 5pm and 8pm. Theres a lake with a very nice walking path and paddle-boats for hire. The lake is a nice location for taking photographs.
Went to Rooms to Go. Nice place. Tried going to Applebees for dinner. Restaurant was way too cold. We left and called back to ask why in 18 degree weather were they running the air conditioning! Manager said he was unaware of it being cold! How I ask! All who were dining were wearing coats! Was it not obvious. Really. We will not try that place again.
Nice place to eat and/or chill. Love the pond. Only complaint is the parking during peak hours. Otherwise, great date place!
Great variety of food options. Wine Vault is a wonderful spot to talk over a bottle of amazing wine. At high peak times parking is a nightmare.
