  • good steak house, a little slow

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    Ambiance was quiet and pleasant; good for conversation. Service professional and attentive. A little slow; we weren't in a hurry and it was ok. Steaks and sides were very good; loved the brussel sprouts with bacon. The house steak was an adequate portion at a decent price and was done as ordered. Chicken pot pie was like soup with biscuits...would not order again.

    We went to Chop House 88 to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Being from out of town we weren't sure exactly what to expect, but reading other great reviews we decided to give it a shot. It did not disappoint. We had a quiet and relaxing dinner in a romantic atmosphere. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The food was spectacular. Everything combined made for a memorable evening well befitting for the occasion.

    Huge disappointment. Supposed to be a prime steakhouse, but the only ribeye on the menu was only choice. Very tough, hard to chew. The bacon appetizer was a disappointment. My wife had deviled eggs, way too salty.

    All the years I have been going to Vero Beach, we never went to the Chop House, but will definitely go on our next visit. Very nice, subtle atmosphere. Drinks were made perfectly. I had Prime Rib and it was one of the best I have had. It did not automatically come with au jus and it really didn't need it! They did bring some when I asked for it though. The toppings for the baked potato came in a nice display. We were too full for desert but they packaged up creme brulee very nicely for us. My son had a HUGE burger (1 pound!). He could only eat half of it, but loved the rest of it the next day for lunch. A hidden gem!

    Expensive, but the food was outstanding. I had theNY strip - best steak I've had in a long time. My wife had the fillet and raved about it. We both had grilled shrimp as well, and they were huge and very tasty. We will definitely return the next time we are in Vero.

    We were there for our 30th anniversary, it was delightful,romantic and friendly. Our waiter was Mike, easy to talk to and just the right amount of conversation. When I mentioned baseball he was right in the conversation, loved chatting with him! He even asked where we were from and when we said the Adirondacks he sent over someone from there! We especially liked the early bird special and will go again for that. Loved my pork chops,so tender. I have already told my friends about Chop House 88, most have not heard of it. We will be back soon.

  • New Location Still Good
    CranebrothersVIP
    Dined on 4/28/2014
    The food was very good, service was spotty, wine list was good. The original Chop House near the ocean has changed when the owners went separate ways. The menu is still innovative and very good. For the price point, the linens if you wear wearing black were not available (was in the original), the lighted menus which were unique gone, just needs somethng. Wait staff skills needed work and much flirting amongst themselves at times to remember the diners. Food the tuna steak & as well as my husbands steak was delicious, both cooked to perfection and the appetizer as well. Wine list was good but not extensive as in the original. Still fit for foodies, but you must know about them from previous trips & make sure to note new location.

    Our 2nd visit to Chop House was excellent. David, our waiter, did an outstanding job, always there when we needed him. His suggestions were great and he made the meal even better. The food was superior. The rib eye steak was cooked perfectly and my wife's rack of lamb was outstanding. We completely enjoyed our meal and will be back. This may be our new favorite Vero restaurant!!!

  • Solid High End Steak House
    AckamoVIP
    Dined on 4/18/2014
    Had dinner for 5 on Friday before Easter with many other high end Vero options booked up. Very good comparable with other high end national steak houses (e.g., Morton's or Ruth's Chris). Service was excellent (only improvement would have been to check back on drinks more often). Beer tartare and salad appetizers were nice. Even brought out sides early as appetizers to accommodate kids at the table. Steaks and seafood were terrific. Only let down was my lamb chops, while tasty, were a little overcooked (asked them to be cooked per chef's recommendation). Great sides - especially the Mac & cheese. Not cheap, as you will pay major streak house prices. But a nice high end option in downtown Vero.

    Dined on 3/30/2014
    This was our second visit to Chop House 88. We liked it so much we returned for my birthday dinner and tried the Sunday special, 3 course dinner for $29.99. Husband and I both upgraded to the 7oz filet for an additional $5. I added Oscar to my steak. The meat was beautifully done medium rare and the lump crab was luscious in the Bernaise sauce. Asparagus was tender crisp, perfect. My meal came with Scalloped potatoes, just as yummy as my homemade ones. The steaks were about 2 inches thick, lightly charred on the outside, seasoned and cooked perfectly and true to the tenderloin name. Dessert was a fabulous creme brûlée. Coffee was excellent. We each had a glass of the recommended wine. Service lovely. Leftovers packed for tomorrow's lunch.

    Chophouse 88 gives you all the experiences of big city dining but in a small town. We love the food, the wait staff, the selections and you are always greeted with enthusiasm. You should never leave hungry as portions are large. Drink menu and wine list is exceptional! We look forward to our next trip for our anniversary.

    I was taken to Chop House 88 for my birthday. I feel that they are quite pricey, but the service was very good. I had filet mignon and really enjoyed it. The other party with me had the double pork chop and it was raw. He was too embarassed to send it back so he just didnt eat it. Nobody even asked why he didnt eat it. He took it home and cooked it the next day and said it was pretty good.

    Nice to see this place come back. Best steaks in Vero. We ate at the bar. Bartender very strange guy. Good service except for our drinks. We ordered two martinis. The guy brings us two martinis - one in a small glass and the other in a big class? We questioned the glasses and he insisted that both glasses were filled to the top. Later, he said he would pour more in the next round which we didn't have. Not what I would expect at a classy place like this.

    It's as if we got to step into the TV screen on one of the food networks' shows. Food and Wine magazine discusses fine dining experiences like this one. You will unterstand what the term "layers of flavor" means. Fantastic ambience, service, and most important the ONLY issue you will have, is indecision on what to order. When you tell others about it the next day (because you will) ...your mouth will water as you remember your meal.

    This is basically MT's Chop House moved mainland. MT's customers will notice that Chop House 88 bought everything from MT, and I do mean everything. The prices are high for what I would consider to be a good steak, but not an exceptional steak. Service was lacking, we brought our own wine, waiter broke the cork and then demonstrated the wrong way to decant a 15 year old bottle. When the food arrived the runners were unaware who had ordered what, and started asking us what we ordered. It was good food but not great and it was ok service but not great. For $50 a la carte steaks the need to step up their game.
