    The food was bland and my filet was tough. There were no utensils served with side dishes. We were given boxes to put our own leftovers in rather, than the staff doing it. Overall, we were very disappointed for the amount we paid.

    After multiple failed breakfast attempts it is awesome to have CHOP move into the neighborhood. We lacked a place with the service, ambiance, and incredible tastes CHOP brings to South Chandler. Can Not go wrong here!

    Everyone was very happy with the food and the service here. They went out of their way to make sure we had an awesome time, and we did! :) My husband absolutely loves the pork chops here! And the salmon appetizer is to "die for". You can't go wrong going to Chop for a meal and drinks!!!

    This was my third visit to CHOP and each time the service seems to be a little less enthusiastic. Aside from that, consistently good food here and the atmosphere reminds me of back East, so I love coming in.

    I had been to this restaurant 2x before and had a good experience. My last experience this past Saturday night was the worst and I will never go back nor recommend this restaurant to anyone. It started with a 6:45 reservation but we didn't get seated until 7:30 despite checking in with the hostess 3 times. She kept telling us they were busy. Then, why did we have a reservation? Then, my friend and I (who reserved a table for 2) were seated in a corner booth for about 6 people with the a/c running overhead such that it was both loud and cold. The food was also bad. My chicken was anything but succulent - dry and burnt. My friend ordered the lobster ravioli which was also dry. When she asked for more sauce, she was brought marinara instead

    If you want something fried or literally drowned in oil this is the place for you. The side of cauliflower gratain was a bowl full of oil. The spinach artichoke dip was a bowl full of oil. Most of the side options were fried. I smelled like I had been frying food after I left. I will not be returning.

    Beautiful restaurant and great ambiance. Key Lime Martini was fabulous and Wedge Salad was tasty. Lobster Ravioli was just ok. Was cold by the time I was served, husband loved his Pork Chop. Service was ok, alrhough we had 3 different servers which was a little confusing. Overall the ambiance was nice and I appreciated it not being busy on a Tuesday night since we were there for our anniversary. For the price I expected a little more from this place. Probably wouldn't return for dinner, but maybe Happy Hour.

    The first time we went, the dinner was great, there was a piano player and it had a classy ambience - very pleasant. The second time we went it was loud and full of bar people drinking. Completely different experiences. My chop was good, which is their specialty, but my husbands ribs were not hot and low on meat and taste. We don't get to go out to dinner often, and appreciate the first experience, so we probably won't go here again unless we find out that there is a better time to go. Not a family place. Kinda dissapointing.

    Been to chop about 6 times - always happy to return. Excellent Martini up. Food never disappoints. The pork chop is just superb. Always enough for lunch the next day. Service is top notch. Manager is very visible; works, rather than observes, to make sure all is running smoothly; visits all the tables to greet during the meal.

    Four of us decided to try Chop for dinner and I would just say it was ok and we probably will not be back. For the price I expected better quality my prime rib was very good however my husbands fillet was charred and way over cooked when he ordered it medium. Our waitress was new which is fine but she was not assisted by anyone and did not seem to be trained she couldn't answer basic questions and said I don't know. Dissappointed considering it is close and if we had a better experience we would be frequent visitors.

    Chop is a nice looking restaurant and our table was immediately ready for us. The food was good, but the service was just okay. We never had our glasses refilled, they forgot to bring an extra plate that we requested twice, and my daughters order was wrong. Plus they didn't apologize for it being wrong, but they did fix it. Overall the experience was just average.

    Both my wife and I ordered the prime rib. We ordered it cooked medium, but when it came it was well done. That's wasn't the worst part. The crust, which I usually consider the best part was so extremely salty, it was like eating sand as the big salt crystals crunched in your mouth and I'm not talking just one or two, but an entire mouthful of salt. One bite and my wife was done. It just blew us away. I trimmed mine all the way around and finished my overlooked piece, but my wife could not. The waitress could see my wife struggling and asked if she was unhappy. They immediately whisked it away and she ordered a rib eye and sautéed mushrooms. The rib eye was good, but the sautéed mushrooms were unpleasantly sweet. The service was great...

    This is a great place for my wife and I to sit, relax, and catch up with each other after a busy week. We enjoy the atmosphere as well as the friendly staff. The food and drinks are great. If we know we are having a late dinner we can call ahead to reserve items on the menu that we know are fan favorites; this is great since we tend to like dining 8pm or later.

    Chops is a neighborhood gem in South Chandler. We've been there on several occasions. Each time has been fantastic. They have a great selection for Happy Hour along with their daily specials, appetizers, side dishes and main entrees. We've not yet had their desserts as we never are hungry enough to try one.

    The service was very nice. Our waiter was very gracious and so was the girl at the front door. The employees seem to enjoy working there which always amounts to a pleasurable experience. The only thing we didn't quite like was the set up of the restaurant. The entire place is focused around the bar and for two people who don't drink it was somewhat off-putting to be sat next to people who may have had a little too much to drink. Other than that our experience was wonderful and we will be sure to visit again.

    There was as a contrast between the quality of the food and the service this past weekend. The appetizers, salad were all served much too quickly, and pretty much all together, and not the order you would expect. The entrees came flying out while we were halfway done with what we already had on the table. The runners quickly offload the hot plates. I noticed that if there wasn't a direct route to the table they would often have to dump the plate somewhere to cool off their hands before resuming the race to the table. The forth entree came out pretty late in the same hastily manner. People waiting for tables were hovering over our table since we were near the door. I would assume it was an off (weekend) night and give them one more try.
