Diner Reviews
  • "We have been there a number of times and it did not live up to the expectations. The food was awful, the restaurant was incredibly loud, we could not hear each other across the table."

  • "This was a lunch with a mentor of mine I have known for decades. Bob Chambers was actually the first person to ever bring me out to a "fancy" steakhouse. It was Chops circa 1995. Great Lunch, Great Service."

  • "We were celebrating a birthday & brought in our own cake. When the server took the cake from our table, he returned with very small slices for 5 people, which was fine considering we were stuffed from the fabulous food. The cake was returned in its box & bag. When we arrived at home & when I transferred the cake into a cake platter, the whole cake was sliced into pieces & half of the cake was gone. I wouldn't have minded sharing at all, however, we should have been asked before they took it upon themselves to take some of the cake. I was very disappointed in this & that the fact that we just spent $500 on dinner & this was such a rude act. Otherwise, the food, wine & service was phenomenal."

  • "Chops is everything I've come to expect from the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group. It is rare that I get out and Chops made our experience one I will never forget. It was my son's 16th birthdy and they surprised us with desserts on the house. They knew him by name which made all the difference in the world. The food was amazing and I would certainly go back."

  • "Love going to Buckhead Life Restaurants. But this time....service was not there and the noise level was so bad we couldn't hear our own table conversation. Waiter never asked us to cut into the steaks to see if they are acceptable. My medium steak was more like rare. They brought a dessert to our Birthday guest but never returned to ask if we wanted dessert or coffee till out guest was completely done with his dessert."

  • "We were celebrating our son turning 18 and we had a wonderful time... Delicious food, a wonderful wine list and the service was on point. They also took care of our little guy with a nice kid friendly menu. This place is great for romance, groups or just a late nite dinner... Hats off to Chops!!!! Absolutely amazing..."

  • "Service is outstanding at Chops. The ribeye steak cooked medium rare is the best I have ever had. The filet was fantastic as well. Mac and cheese was okay but the steak made up for it. Would have gotten something more along the lines of a vegetable side if I went again. Oysters Rockefeller were also some of the best and largest I have had anywhere. Extensive wine and cocktail selection. Would recommend to anyone looking to treat themselves to a great night and a great dinner."

Everyone wished us a Happy Anniversary and at the end of the they gave us a dessert with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. The waiter was awesome. He recommended a cocktail for me, a beer for my husband and help me decide between two options for dinner. Everything was amazing. Loved the steak fries, which we shared."

  • "Have dined at Chops and Lobster bar many times, always a good meal. This was better than good this time around. Service hit on all cylinders, and every good item was on point. I'm partial to Pampas as the best steak in Atlanta, the Filet I had at Chops was equal. Different flavor than Pampas but a great piece of meat. Will be back"

  • "I travel the globe about 40 weeks / year. I take people out to expensive dinners almost every week and often end up at high end steak houses. My favorite is my hometown place - Chops. For me, this place works. Everything is quality from beginning to end. Great staff also. Prices are also "relatively" inexpensive for this type of place - $40 - mid 50's for most steaks. Highly rrecommended"

  • "Overall just awesome! Friendly attentive staff made you feel welcome & thought of throughout the dining experience. Everything we ate was well prepared and delicious! The fried lobster tail is always excellent! Tried the wagyu steak and are so glad we did - MELTED in our mouths! Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta."

  • "The food was plentiful & decent, but I would expect outstanding.The veggies we average, but not out of this world delicious. I have eaten at CHOPS before and feel I had a better mean before. It was not crowded, but the service was slow for a noon time so if you are on a time issue you may need to insist that they speed things up."

  • "This is with out a doubt the best steak you'll find anywhere. Try the bone-in fillet, simply the best steak you'll ever have! The seafood tower is incredable. You'll never be disappointed here."

  • "I love it when restaurants read the notes that I enter when I make my OpenTable reservation. You can count on the Buckhead restaurant group to do this! If I am celebrating a birthday or anniversary, I always note it in my OpenTable reservation and the waiter always makes a point to mention my special occasion. I love that. They also provide a special complementary dessert if you are celebrating a special occasion. Love that too. Thank you Buckhead Restaurant Group!"

  • "Bar was good, dining timing a bit off . Took a bit for the waiter to come back for our order. Appetizers of Shrimp Cocktail, Oysters,Salad Special-very good. Dinner was various steaks and seafood (group of 6). Most were good although a bit overcooked...one had to be sent back as it was to be pink all through and was only gray...well done. Seems the kitchen had some distractions...our server never came back to check on the steaks which is highly unusual in a restaurant with this reputation. After politely waiting 15 minutes for our server, we asked a water server to track him down. Desert was fine the banana pie was not the winner, the simple cheesecake and creme brulee were very good. All in all the dinner was fine."
