  • "Only complaint tables are very small. If you have 4 it will be tight fit. Steaks were good but not great. Bit expensive. Friday evening there was no crowd. Looked like most were having burgers. Compares favorably to Buckheads, which was a real disappointment."

  • "Ordered the $50 steak. A bit pricey but I was in the mood for a steak and a lot of it. Asked for it medium rare. Came out medium well. I pointed this out and was told that they would take the steak off the hot plate so it would not continue to cook. Huh??? It was so dry and chewy and need I say small. All the juice being cooked out of it there were only few bites left in it. Couldn't eat it. Manager also mentioned that this was the last steak of this cut. This was at 7 pm. One of my side dishes never came out until I asked about it at the end of our meal. The manager who seeing I didn't or couldn't eat the steak offered me a 50% discount on my entrée. I just paid $25 for a steak that I couldn't eat. First and last time trying this place."

  • "Although we've only dined at Ben's once each year for my Mother's birthday, we have not been disappointed. Food great! Service Excellence! ask for Kevin's section in the dining area. We recently moved back to Columbus. We look forward to experiencing Ben's other events like wine tastings in the bar ."

  • "I graduated from college and decided to try Ben's Chophouse, what an excellent choice! The waitress, Lindsey was amazing! We arrived right before closing time because of graduation crowds/traffic; however, the staff opened us with open arms! EVERYONE in my party bragged about how great the dishes were and excellent prices on drinks as well! Excellent!"

  • "I had heard such great things about Ben's Chophouse but could not seem to find the time to go. I finally had the time and available friend to go with and the food was terrible. I don't miind spending a lot if the food is especially tasty: both our steaks were filled with grizzle and way more fat than one normally find at high end restaurants. The diet soda was flat, my friend's asparagus was limp and tasteless. My potatoes was great and the green beans were just ok. We were both very disappointed and will not go back."

  • "Thought that for the price paid everything could have been better. It took over 10 minutes for a server to come to our table. The hostess who seated us offered to take our drink orders but then informed us that she could not take wine orders. We had to ask for bread from our server who when asked if bread came with our meal informed us that it was by request. We informed her that she never mentioned that to us when she took our orders. Food was okay but the mashed potatoes that I ordered were not originally brought out with my meal and once i found our server to inform her of this she bought out some potatoes that were lukewarm. Paid over $80 for two persons so expected so much more. "

  • "Our experience was okay. I had the gumbo and my husband had the bourbon steak both of which came with a salad and a side. I ordered a "salad" w dressing on side and my husband ordered a "Caesar". Unbelievably when we got our bill we Haida $2.00 up charge EACH for our salads. Our waitress attempted to explain it was based on the "salad" we ordered. Huh?? What?? Not complaining over $4.00 but because we told her it was our 1st time, would have thought she would have explained or offered to remove it. Would I come back again?? Umm not so sure now."

  • "visited Ben's Chophouse to celebrate my son's commisioning as 2LT. Serever, Kevin was awesome. checked on Gluten free for my wife and I, answered all our questions, checked on us the right amount and even graced us with a free dessert. They had a bunch of specials, the fillet with crab meat was incredible...cooked perfectly. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and feel free toask them to prepare it 'your way'. Seemed very accomodating."

  • "Our food was good but not as good as it has been in the past. My Mahi Mahi was dry whereas the last time I had it it was very moist. The waitress started out good but as the night went on, she got slower and slower with requests. It took us a long time to get our check and to have it picked back up. We eventually had to ask another server to take it. It did not appear she had too many other tables. The restaurant was not that crowded. The Brussel Sprouts CANNOT be beat. They are the best menu item!!!"

  • "Our foursome had steak, porkchops, beef tips and a chicken dish. The beef tips were very good; the chicken and pork chops were good but not remarkable. The ribeye steak was mediocre. As a chophouse, we expected more. It was prepared and served as requested (medium). Unfortunately, the flavor was average and the texture chewy. The sautéed spinach was very good and the grilled asparagus was exceptional. The uniquely-flavored cakes and desserts were tasty, so that's a high point, and they have a good selection of wines. Their bar specials are priced well, but only available in the bar area. We would NOT return for dinner, but might for a glass of wine and the lamb chop appetizers. They're expensive ($14) but very, very good. "

  • "We went here for the steak that was referred to us by others. My husband and I both enjoyed our steaks which were cooked to our specifications. They had lots of options for the kids too which was nice because my son is a picky eater. Overall, I would say that it was a good steak but not the best I ever had."

  • "The food was amazing and well priced. It was between this place or Epic for our anniversary dinner and I picked Bens because it had a delicious looking menu and was still affordable. It was definitely worth every penny! The service was fantastic! And the wine on special was delicious! It's a fancy but well priced restaurant. One of Columbus' best restaurants hands down!"

  • "I visited this Ben's earl in the evening...6pm...and there was very little bat action but the bar appeared to have a nice ambience and would probably get busy a little later in the evening. The dining room be "dressed up" a bit to make it a little more enticing. However, the food was very good and the service was truly outstanding. I travel and eat out a lot, so I fairly critical when rating restaurants."

  • "After taking in a recent show at the Rivercenter, we had to plan ahead for a late dinner. Following online recommendations, we decided to try Ben's Chophouse. Quite happy we did. The bone-n ribeye was served exactly as ordered, and still cooking on a cast-iron platter. My wife's dinner salad (I don't know which one she ordered) was reported to be fresh, nicely seasoned and flavorful. The boy's order of tenderloin medallions was perfect. Our server was quick, friendly and attentive. Serving time was prompt, considering the items ordered, no undue delays."

  • "The steak that we recieved was burned. Well done steak should be eatable. We had to return the steak two times before giving up. We were told that they have no control on how well done is served. Minus the small portion the steak was returned."

  • "My overall experience at the Ben's Chop House was very good. A couple recommendations I would suggest would be bigger portions of food, and maybe put tinting on the resturant's glass to cut down on vehicle headlight glaring. Thank you."

  • "Despite mixed reviews we decided to give the restaurant a try. My wife's steak had to be re-cooked two times. They apparently thinks medium is raw. The manager was very helpful and explained to us, that what everyone else in Georgia thinks is medium is actually well done. Our waitress was friendly but couldn't tell us is the steak was dry aged. I did like that the entrees came with one side and a salad. It was ok but not at the level of other top steak houses. The manager was very nice and worked hard to get the food right. The waitress was friendly."

  • "We have lived in East Alabama for less than 2 months and have tried a number of local steakhouses. We have been to Ben's a few times and have always been satisfied. Our steaks were great cuts of meat and cooked just right. There is as extensive list of wines by the glass. It was just a very satisfying night out and was much better than a much more expensive meal at Meritage. We plan to be regular's at Ben's"

  • "We were overnight in Columbus and Open Table directed us to Ben's Chop House. From the time we walked in until we departed, it was an outstanding evening. Michael, our host provided a very warm welcome and handled our seating request exactly as we wished. Travis, our server was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgable regarding the menu items. Everyone displayed a genuine sense of appreciation that we were there as their guests. My wife described her steak as one of the best she had ever enjoyed. I chose the chefs seafood special selection that evening and it was simply outstanding. Bens had a great wine and spirit selection which enhanced our meal as well. Overall, a great experience and I will be back again."

  • "Excellent service. I arrived and was greeted pleasantly. The service was great. My group was in the dining area but you could still hear the live music in the background from the bar area which was nice. The food was excellent. I didn't hear a single complaint from any of my group. The bar service was exceptional as well. The restaurant has a large selections of wine to choose from as well as daily drink specials. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "We had our company lunch and it was not at all what I expected. First the waitress spilled the flower vase all over the table then finally came and took our order. It took over an hour to get our food which in most case it was philly cheesesteak so there is no way it should have taken that long,. Just was not at all what I expected from this restaurant. Not good at all."

Still cannot figure out the paper covering the nice tablecloth, seemed like something one would find at a crabhouse or something. Other than mixing up the side dishes each of us had, the food was very good and the staff very attentitive..."

  • "The chef's daily specials are usually the way to go (not that anything else isn't great always, because it is).....It's the only place in town that has a bone in filet that is very outstanding. And the pecan crusted chicken drizzled with honey is amazing too. These were both chef specials though but can't go wrong with anything that you palate enjoys. They also have great acoustic live music that's not too loud to talk to each other (and trust me, I'm hard of hearing). It's in my top 3 in Columbus for fine dining."

  • "The Salad with Seafood was a hit at our table! It comes with large grilled shrimp, large grilled scallops and lump crab meat on top! It is a meal into itself but the chef has no problem splitting it between two if you want to Oder a nice steak to go along with it! We did and we were very pleased not to mention very satisfied. We also would be remiss if we didn't mention the attention and politeness of the wait staff. They were excellent!"
