  • "Stumbled upon this place one morning, when a nearby brunch place wouldn't seat 5 outside because it was "their policy"... and I'm really glad they didn't! I thought it was just a steakhouse that would be open for lunch/dinner, but they've got brunch as well! They start you off with complimentary sticky buns which was a nice welcome. 5 of us there: 3 got huevos rancheros, 1 got fried chicken/biscuits, and I got the Brisket, shank & grilled tongue hash. One word: Deliciousness! Fast forward 20 mins, plates were wiped clean and we were leaving satisfied. Will definitely be back for brunch again! Great outdoor seating as well!"

  • "Although I wouldn't call it new anymore, I had been looking forward to check out a new steak house in town that would be a break from the stuffy steak houses of Boston. The food was great. The jumbo shrimp were huge, the wedge was fantastic and the sides were all great takes on classic offerings. The steak, well it was steak, but cooked well. They offer dipping sauces, stay away from the BBQ but all the others were great (you can ask for more than one). Cocktail list was great but the execution on some of them were a miss. Dessert was unneeded but well done, nothing new. It was expensive though, about 80-100 bucks pp. I'd go again, but to just grab a salad and some raw bar offerings at the bar. Great music, which was appreciated."

  • "So impressed by our visit to Boston Chops. Everything we ordered had so much flavor from our cocktails, to french onion soup, to the hangar and skirt steak entrees. The service was also fantastic and very attentive. We'll definitely be back."

  • "…and it's been good every time. Something for everyone from grandma through young diners. About ready to take the show somewhere else for a break - but it's only because grandma is starting to remember that we've been there before. The novelty held up for 3 weeks though. She got to enjoy the huevos rancheros 3 Sundays in a row - and each time as if the first. Don't forget to visit the Cathedral across the way after brunch - or if you've got time take in SOWA Sunday."

  • "I'd been looking forward to trying Boston Chops for a while. Probably my mistake for ordering something besides beef. Everything was too salty and getting and paying the bill shouldn't take over 10 minutes."

  • "Boston Chops was a recommendation by a friend for dinner for me and my girlfriend and it ended up being the best dine-out dinner I have had in years. The waitress was very knowledgable with regards to both the food selection as well as the drink and wine pairings. The appetizers and main courses were exceptional. Overall a great dining experience."

  • "Usually steak places are unbelievably expensive--this one was reasonable and fabulous. Outstanding service and overall great dinner."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The food was quite good. The steaks and especially the fried chicken were very well prepared. Try the spicy broccoli -- unusual and a treat. The warm chocolate cake was exceptionally good. The tables for two are a little small; we requested a booth, which came with a seat very, very soft, so you sunk down. It was actually uncomfortable, as was the loud hard rock music. Two very odd and unpleasant features for an otherwise really enjoyable meal and evening experience."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Apps out of the ordinary. Raw bar along with items such as chicken fried sweetbreads and roasted bone marrow. Beef dishes were good but a bit pricey. Desserts were outstanding and service was impeccable. And excellent addition to the south end dining scene."

  • "We went on a Saturday night hoping for a small, well prepared, rational piece of good red meat. (We usually split an 8 oz filet)...The evening started with the waitress spilling a drink on the party next to us...It was not the spill-but their shocked discussion about lack of a management reaction to the spill that occupied our attention for the next 1 1/2 hours as we waited for our food. Our waitress was very inexperienced, kept promising to come right back and then vanishing. We also felt she kept suggesting 10 and 14 oz options (selling up)....It is really a shame as the food was quite good. Our feeling is that they are understaffed for the loud and energetic crowd. To be fair--it must be doing something right as it was packed."

  • "We came looking for great meat (of all varieties) and we found it! Beautiful NY strip, delicious pork chop, perfectly prepared cow heart...and on top of that, the salads were wonderful, the ceviche was very nice, and the waitstaff was the all we could ask for. I would go again most definitely when in search of good meat!"

  • "I didn't know brunch was served here, but it was listed on the thrillist app and had good reviews, so I decided to try it out. It was a prefect day, so i was glad we could get a table outside. the place was not overly busy, we were seated promptly, and service was good. they allowed substitutions to menu items, so i was able to get the cornbread. it was a bit dry. the kale omelet was delicious. my friend had the huevos rancheros which were very sweet, i think because of mole sauce. could have used a little more seasoning. Overall though, the food was very good. side of bacon was perfect. would have brunch here again."

  • "Very enjoyable Friday evening dinner with good food and attentive service. We tried appetizers ranging from the more we'll-known (mussels, a fresh ceviche) to more uncommon (roasted marrow), all very good. Most of us went for different steak frites varieties (skirt, hanger) - all we'll executed and tasty. We also tried braised short ribs which were great. Overall, we left satisfied and in a great mood!"

  • "My family and I dined here and were disappointed in our dishes. The pork and hanger steak were okay, but we expected something better for the price we were paying. The oysters and prime rib steak were good. The fried chicken was also good. This was the second time we dined here and not sure if we will try it again for a third time."

  • "Another great meal. Some items are pricey yet I think of BC as a terrific dining experience rather than THE "go-to" steak place in Boston. Some argue that the quality of the meat does not match some of the long-established steak houses in Boston (Grill 23, etc.) and I tend to agree. But it sure is in a different class than the Longhorn Steakhouse -- for sure. The staff is knowledgeable and professional -- also energetic and breezy (i.e., they all have an upbeat attitude). I love the vibe there. Lots of South End residents especially during the week, which makes it a nice high-end destination for friends or coworkers (if you work in town). Their wine menu is terrific and the staff make terrific suggestions."

  • "Service, Food and Drink were excellent. Music was a bit louder than our 95 y.o. Mom would have preferred, but conversation was possible with effort. Soundtrack was well chosen - mostly Sarah Jones + Daptones. Brunch menu offers broad array from standards to steaks and with some more creative riffs between. "Hash", a contemporized take, was very enjoyable, although they're no longer doing the sous vide egg with that. Which they should. But the poached were okay, if not as promised. Kale Omelet was enjoyed, and Huevos Rancheros (with braised beef cheek in place of chorizo) was delicious. Server was very nice. Attentive and responsive, but not obtrusive. Overall good experience. Looking forward to returning for dinner sometime soon."

  • "Our table was ready for us when the first of our party arrived. As usual the food was outstanding from the seafood tower appetizer, the stack of onion rings to the great steaks. Don't miss the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Our waitress was attentive and had some good suggestions. You will likely strike up a conversation with the people next to you, because what they are eating looks so interesting."

  • "I had the best skirt steak I have ever had at Boston Chops, much better than what I was expecting for a less-pricey cut. Upscale steakhouse atmosphere in beautiful old bank building. Our waitress was very knowledgable and had a great personality. The only flaw was that the frites with my order of steak-frites did not come in a timely manner, I think an effect of their system of having a separate server bring them out after your plate is delivered to you. But overall, excellent and I can't wait to go back."

  • "Does not compare to other steakhouses. Steaks were cooked perfectly but had a strip of thick fat around them. Tripe was flavorless and the calomari was good but small. On a good note the bartender and servers were excellent. "

  • "After trying all the chains - Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Smith & Wollenskys, Del Frisco's Boston Chops is a great change. Many unique features and touches from popovers instead of a breadbasket, special items like marrow dishes, John Dewar cut of the day and some of the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had and I eat it anywhere I can. Service was friendly and informative but not overdone and obtrusive. Great outdoor dining and people watching. "
