Customshop has been one of our go-to places in Charlotte. The menu always has something on the menu that we really enjoy and their wine list is excellent. Great place for a date night or for couples.

The food here is awesome. But the atmosphere is very relaxed. My husband and I enjoyed a dinner here during an anniversary weekend in Charlotte. We wanted fine dining but without the stuffy atmosphere. Customshop fit the bill.
