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 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. "

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!!!"

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!"

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."

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."

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."

The Ribeye Steak was amazing and
wonderful Hamburger's. Glad we stopped on the way thru."

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"

The food was great, as always! The
restaurant was busy and very noisy. We were unable to have a conversation due to the very loud group next to us. I've found that booth seating is a little quieter."

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."

After a long dayof traveling,
Ben's was a perfect place to have a great rib eye and a glass of wine."

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."

Chophouse and was very pleased with our experience. Overall, the food was good, the ambiance just right and the wait staff were very attentive and personable."

Went for my dates birthday, wanted
something upscale and local. Dissappointed that they did not have the ingredients for a mojito, so we had iced tea instead. 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 surprise piece of gourmet cake
topped with cream consumated a wondeerful dining experience. Our son did not have a well prepared steak for 14 weeks; when he finally did, Ben's prepared a great meal!"

Service, food, and atmosphere was
great. We decided on the restaurant because we had coupons. We were delighted with the staff and the food. I had the burger with sweet potato fries. It was perfectly cooked and the sweet potato fries were awesome. Great location and excellent service. I highly recommend it!"

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."
