Lake Norman Restaurants

We hope you enjoy your stay at Carolina Hideaway. It’s a special property on a special lake – we hope you enjoy it as much as our past guests. While we’re sure you’ll enjoy dining freshly prepared meals from our gourmet kitchen (and possibly dining al fresco), we’ve prepared the list of local Lake Norman restaurants that we enjoy for those nights you want to step out. The Landings (at Lake Norman Motel) This is our favorite “dive” restaurant on the water. It’s basically sandwiches of all kinds, fajitas, and their famous “Oh My Cod” fish sandwich. You’ll get lots of local flavor here … including a Tiki Bar, Carolina Blonde Beer on Tap, great wings, $1.50 Coronas on Tuesdays, video games and kids meals in Frisbees for the kids, and live music on Friday and Saturday nights.  Fine dining it is not. It is a lot of fun though. They also deliver pizza. It’s solid but one of the few places that we have found that delivers. (828-478-2817) The Blue Parrot Across the main channel … just north of the 150 bridge. Good food. Cold beer. Local flavor. Live music on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. They also sell gas for boats. Tony’s Pizza (no delivery) Our favorite pizza in NC. It’s NY style pizza with a large pizza so big they need to fold over the edges to fit it in the box. They don’t deliver and it’s very “light” on ambiance but a great carry-out option to take back to the Hideaway. It’s great pizza !!  (704) 658-1926. Giovanni’s Pizza and Pasta (pizza and Italian food delivered)...
