    We have been coming to 'our place' since 2003 and it is always consistently excellent. It is our special place when we want the very best. The wait staff is professional and friendly and the food is outstanding. Anyone wanting to impress or just simply celebrate should definitely check out this restaurant.

  • Anniversary Dinner
    Disappointed
    Dined on 8/4/2014
    This was our 35th anniversary dinner. The food and atmosphere were great but have had better attention toward a special occasion. We had requested a special table. It was evident no thought had been put into the seating. The anniversary dessert plate we ordered had a candle, most fine dining restaurants we have been to on special occasions, the plate has been decorated with chocolate, etc. sauce with writing for your special day. I do not mean to sound petty, but it was evident that they do not go out of their way for a special occasion. They evidently have cigars at bar area. When you open entrance door you smell stale smoke. Throughout dinner you get a whiff because the wall between bar and tables are open shelves.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    Food was excellent as always, however we have picked up a trend the last several times that the service can often feel more turn and burn. The servers rush through their introduction, and never gave us a chance to look at the wine list. A recommendation would have been great! The same with dessert service. I only get an after dinner drink if the server offers, as it lets me know if they care for us to stay. Nothing was offered. Pace of meals was also very rushed as the assistants were rushing to get to the next course, attempting to pick up the men's plates before the women were finished. They also dropped silverware on the floor in rushing to clear. Wish they would change their specials up every so often as well.

    My wife and I have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. I've entertained customers, many of which were from large cities and they felt the same way. The Steaks are great my favor is the bone in Rib Eye 22oz. and the Sea Bass is second to none. Those of you that are lobster fans they have them up to 5.5 lb. I'll keep coming back.

    Chophouse 47 is a great restaurant for a special occasion. We went for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. The steaks are cooked Pittsburgh style with a charred edge, and are so tender. Just a great all around dinner experience.

    The bartenders were very friendly and attentive. The dining room was quiet during our visit. The service was timely and the server was very informative and courteous. My steak was perfect. My wife's fish, the trout, was disappointing and she did not eat much. Did not expect it deep-fried, should be sautéed. The server offered something else but it was too late. Finally, I believe the sides are very overpriced, even though they are large enough to share. The salads and appetizers selections were limited. Overall, the food was exceptional.

    We took him there last father's day and he loved it. We wanted to do something nice so we surprised him. As always it went over as well as anything could. the food was great, the service was great, not too crowded so it was comfortable. Our waitress was as competent as she was enchanting and between her and the busboys (and other servers that came by as they work in a team), not a thing went overlooked. Most importantly, they get it here - they do their thing, attending to details without constantly interrupting which is so rare today. They just make sure everything is handled perfectly and blend in the background never interrupting. It's always a great experience (and really cute waitresses don't hurt ;-))

    Our group of four had the 16 oz. prime NY Strip, the Triple Cut Lamb Chops and the Crab Cakes.....all were absolutely superb. It isn't the type of restaurant that would draw us on a weekly basis...simply because we tend to eat lighter...but for our visiting son's birthday it was absolutely excellent and we'll go again. By the glass the Franciscan Estate chardonnay was very, very nice. Others had martinis, etc. all of which were very good. Plus, the service was perfect.

    The food was the biggest disappointment . My Manhattan came with a little too much bitters. One steak had to be sent back as it was overdone. When returned, it was very salty tasting, and I did not finish it, as my partner was done. The chop salad was OK, but certainly not high standard or memorable. The biggest shock was when our booth table had a woman smoking next to it in the bar area , and I could smell her smoke. The waiter explained it was an age old tradition to smoke in the bar. The service was very very good. I wish we had gone to their competition for such a pricey meal.

    My family dines at Chophouse 47 a couple of times a year for special occasions. We recently were disappointed with the the quality of the steaks. They were not prepared (per the menu) ... broiled to "... produce just the right amount of carmelization to optimize flavor. " The outside of the meat was not broiled as in all previous visits. It was an expensive meal to have an average experience. I wish we had gone somewhere else. Our waiter was attentive, but not very experienced.

    We took Mom on Mother's day. The servers all seemed harried (even though restaurant was only 1/2 full). None of us had ever eaten at Chophouse 47 (CH), but all agreed that with the prices they ask CANNOT normally have rushed serving staff. We had to ask for beverage refills, and dirty dishes sat on the table for extended periods of time. I suspect CH is competitive with Ruth's Chis. We have been to Ruth's several times and the service was always relaxed and top notch - never had to ask for anything. CH Has too many tables crammed into the space. To go to the bathroom I felt like I was on a plane - had to wait for a server to finish with another table's order THEN for the hostess to seat a table.

    I normally don't write reviews but my husband and I were so disappointed in our experience that I decided to do so. The oyster rock feller and ceasar were delicious. For our entrees he ordered Lobster and I ordered the 12 oz. filet. Good thing I ordered a large steak because after one bite of the lobster, my lobster loving husband didn't take another bite. It was extremely chewy and had no flavor. We are not ones to complain but I expected the server to notice a two pound lobster left on the plate and to ask if something was wrong with it. My husband and I shared my filet which was nothing spectacular either. We were highly disappointed in the quality of the food.

    A great place for a special occasion or for finding an absolutely flawless dining experience. A bit pricey, but well worth the cost - this was hands-down the best meal we've both ever had dining out. The sea bass was perfectly cooked, the NY strip was as well. Seasoning was just right. Portions are large enough that two adults could have split a meal and had plenty. That is especially true of the side items which are actually served in casserole dishes. In fact, I think next time, we'll order one dinner entree and split a meal. That would give us a very high-quality meal with impeccable service at a more competitive price - the best of both worlds!

    Chophouse 47 is a place for great dining in Greenville. The steaks are the best. (I cook a pretty good steak at home but can't equal Chophouse.) They will shell your lobster at the table. The wines are excellent. This is one of my favorite places and I travel all over the world. For a special occasion or if you just want to be treated special, this is the place.

    The ambience was great and very much what I expected but I frequent high end restaurants and this one was just good. The only reason I say that is because of the pricing. We tried the wedge salad, caesar salad, steak and grilled salmon which were are very good but nothing more than I've had in other locations for a decreased amount. Other than the price point issue we were happy.

    Great Pittsburg style on a great cut, monster asparagus and baked potato but it ends there. The extremely overly perky server was seldom seen. Literally, took order, ask about desert then brought check. Had to stop others to get a glass of water refilled. Extremely loud and hectic. With the a la carte menu and top end prices they appear as a Ruth's Chris wannabee and while they have the steak they certainly miss the mark on ambience and service. At $150 for 2 with no alcohol, no desert, and no appetizer I expect more. All said however the steak is probably the best in the area.

    Having just moved to Greenville after 15 years in Atlanta I would put this steakhouse up against pretty much any steakhouse in Atlanta. The wine was great, the Blue Cheese wedge was delicious and the steak and sides were both fabulous. Great to know that if I want the quintessential steakhouse experience I do not have to go far at all.
