Lake Norman & Mooresville

3 or more courses for $30 per person at 88 restaurants

The fifth "Queen's Feast" Charlotte Restaurant Week will run July 16- 25, a 10-day summer promotion featuring 88 restaurants, including eight in Lake Norman and five in Cabarrus County or University City.

The event website lists the restaurants' Queen's Feast menus.

Charlotte Restaurant Week is a promotion during a typically slow time. Participating restaurants offer a fixed price, three- or more course dinner for $30 per person, a savings over what the featured meal would typically cost. The fixed price does not include tax and gratuity.

This summer's Queen's Feast includes more than a dozen first-time restaurant participants, including The Prickly Pear in Mooresville, The Speedway Club in Concord and Chingari Fine Indian Cuisine in University City.

Reservations are strongly recommended; reservation links and contact information for all participating restaurants can be found at
