A word from Bascom's Chop House
When the original Bascom came to Florida at the turn of the last century to help Henry Flagler build the Key West Railroad, he brought with him his love for thick cut chops and juicy steaks. During his travels he also discovered the bounties of fresh native Florida seafood. We have brought all of his favorites together in a true American Chop House that pays tribute to Bascom's hearty appetite and a passion for great steaks, chops and fresh seafood. In his honor, we have made Bascom's Chop House a comfortable, yet elegant, American restaurant. We are proud to offer a superbly crafted wine list and American Mid-Western beef, aged to our own exacting specifications to ensure the most tender and flavorful steaks served anywhere at any price. And, true to our Bascom's Chop House name, we also offer hand-cut veal, pork and lamb chops all prepared to perfection, as well as a great selection of native seafood delivered fresh daily.Continued

  • "As alwasys the steaks and service were outstanding. Excellent value for money."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I took my hubby there,as he had never been here and I have been there few times from work. We were seated in a very romantic spot but the two men sitting opposite to us were extremely loud,in fact they were so loud that i could not hear what was my husband was trying to tell me !!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "...that's how beautiful my plate of scallops with baby spinach and peppers was! The portion was rather small, only three scallops, but they were perfectly cooked and surrounded with a port wine sauce that was silky and a perfect accompaniment to the spinach. I am going to visit again for lunch and dinner."

  • "Ordered dinner. Everything fine until husband's filet ordered medium rare came to table very charred, as manager later told him. It was burned. Was given another piece of meat along with lecture from manager about "quality" cuts of meat. He appeared very condescending. Never going back or recommending."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The food is scrumptious. The weekend special of the filet mignon or prime rib for $23.95 with a very tasty salad and delicious baked potato is hard to beat anywhere in the area. They have an extensive wine list that is presented in an E-reader and provides lots of details on each wine. They even offer a 25% discount on any wine over $40.00 a bottle. Additionally, the service is excellent. Server Pam was very professional and at the same time funny and engaging. You can't go wrong with Bascom's. Everyone in the party was really pleased with the entire experience. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Server Chelsea was terrific--prompt service, timely updates, and pleasant personality. Prime rib was delicious, properly cooked and had minimal fat. Salad was crisp and had a nice variety of greens. The baked potatoes were undercooked-the only negative. Due to the late hour we dined, we didn't asked for replacements."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "service was very slow, waiting for waiter 15 mins to order food after drinks were served ...than another 20 mins to be served appetizers and than 30 mins for dinner...when asked if we wanted dessert , I also asked for the check.did not want to wait again ....total time for dinner with 2 people was 2 1/4 hrs ..waiter was more interested in chatting with regulars than doing his job ..sorry to say , ALSO IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY DINNER WITH MY WIFE..HOW SAD"

  • "Tried this place last vacation to Florida- it was so delicious it has become our family tradition to eat dinner there out last night in Florida. Filet mignon is amazing"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Since we found this gem, we never hesitate to bring our friends. All have told us they would return. You can`t beat the week-end specials. If you like SURF or TURF, there`s much to please. If you go, don`t forget to ask your server for a LOYATY card. It`s just another way to save on a great meal."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Bone in rib eye is phenominal. Their weekend specials are really great. All of their food is excellent ....... great value without the pomp and excessive price of some others."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "WHILE EVERYTHING WAS AVERAGE TO GOOD, BASED ON THE PRICES IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN OUTSTANDING. SEEMED LIKE ITS A BERN'S WANNABE BUT FALLS WAY SHORT, EXCEPT FOR THE PRICES. THEY WERE HIGHER."

  • "We had a very nice dinner at Bascom's on Saturday evening."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We were not offered a dinner salad as advertised on the online menu: (so we did not get one) Add a loaded baked potato to any Signature Entrèe $3.95 Add Our Garden salad to any Entrèe $2.95"

  • "My wife and I live just minutes away from downtown St Pete, so when we go out for dinner, which is frequently, we generally hit the downtown spots. This past Saturday, we were in the mood to shake it up, but we didn't feel like driving to Tampa. We thought of Bascom's, which is a frequent enough lunch stop for us, but not a dinner spot. It was a great choice! Wonderful food, great server (Sara - with no 'h'), decent wine list, and, on top of all that, a 25% discount on bottles of wine on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings! NOBODY gives wine discounts on the weekend! The entire experience was excellent, and we definitely will go back again for dinner!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Not to take anything away from the food, which was very good. But what made the difference for us was our server Pam! She is the reason we will be regulars. She was helpful, pleasant, professional and made us feel special. A treasure who was this restaurants best advertising, and if I had my own restaurant I'd hire her away"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Capital Grille it is not but neither are the prices. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides very tasty. Pretty limited wine list. However it was a business night out that did not break the bank or the need to trek over to Tampa. If you are in mid Pinellas and want a good place to bring a business associate or client I would highly recommend Bascom's."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Never let's us down. In an area where steak houses are a plenty, Bascom's is consistent and fresh."

  • "We love this place and highly recommend it to others. A very high quality restaurant."

  • "Although the restaurant was noisier than we expected the food and service were great."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I visited with my dad, who was in a wheelchair. We were treated very well. The atmosphere is very nice. The waitresses very courteous. We ordered an appetizer, which came very quickly followed by our salads and the main meal, which was prime rib. The prime rib was right on the money. Cooked to perfection and very tasty. The Father's Day weekend, It was a little noisy but that's to be expected. We live close by, and so we have known the restaurant for some time. We will dine again and look forward to it. Sincerely, Fred R Debien"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Food is excellent...so many great dishes that it is hard to choose which to note, i.e., aged bone-in rib eye, filet, lump crab cocktail, Ceaser salad, Bascomb's salad, crabcakes, veggies, cheesecake, ahi tuna. Ambience is a bit too "steakhouse". Service is always "above and beyond". The waitstaff recommends good, reasonable wines, provides the exact amount of attention one needs and anticipates everything to make your dining experience extremely pleasurable."

  • "Great date night restaurant! First time my husband had Waygo beef and it was divine"

  • "Excellent food and service by Patrice was exceptional"

  • "Consistently the best prime rib you can get anywhere. The Seared Five Spiced Tuna is truly sushi grade and is just delicious. You can't go wrong at this restaurant! We've been going there for years. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "If you`re looking for an upscale dining adventure, try Bascom`s. The wait staff (Craig-you`re the best!) is knowledgeable and impressively dressed. The food is hot when served and delicious. The prices for the week-end specials are hard to beat. I had the prime rib and it was outstanding, cooked exactly as ordered."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We recently tried this steakhouse and I must say it is one of the better experiences we've ever had at a restaurant. The wine list is excellent. The steaks were fabulous. Our server was knowledgeable about everything on the menu. This is a must stop if you are in the Clearwater/Tampa area. "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Great steak house in Clearwater. I've eaten here a few times and this time was my least favorite time. Both my and my husband's steak was a bit overcooked. My husband's prime rib was better than my filet. I ordered it medium but it was a bit crispy on the outside which dried the inside. They charge extra for Bearnaise sauce which I usually love but it was extremely thick this time. I couldn't use it. Save room for dessert and try the custard with fresh fruit."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Having this be the first time in coming to the restaurant it was great to walk in 5 minutes early and was seated right away for a Saturday evening! Our waiter was great and upon getting our food the steak was so moist and the flavor was great and definitely was a great experience as a birthday dinner for my boyfriend! I will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Service is very good; very busy when we were there. Had the prime rib special, which was well priced. Dessert was a little slow coming out but not surprising considering how busy they were. Overall, a great place for steak!"

  • "very dry servers, my king cut steak was tiny and incredibly fatty for the price we paid for dinner."

  • "My wife and I adore this restaurant, even more so than Charley's and Ruth Chris. We dined here when we were married in 2009 and on our anniversary and for her birthday on the 19th of May 2014. It's Clearwater's best kept secret.. The food is 4 Star, the service is stellar and atmosphere and ambiance is second to none.. As long as we are in Florida this is were we prefer to eat.. "

  • "This is an awesome place to eat. We took my mom there for her birthday. Food was exceptional and the waitress even better. I would recommend Bascom's Chophouse for anyone looking for a really nice dining experience."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I have been here a few times and have always loved it; however, this visit was not the best. I ordered the chicken (as usual) but it actually tasted bad - as in old. Although the waiter was very attentive in the beginning, after the meal was delivered he vanished. When he finally came back to us we explained that the child we had with us was very antsy and would like our check as soon as possible. After 30 minutes, the check finally came."
