Diner Reviews
  • "We've been to Chops before and it does not disappoint. It's a classic steak house - with a focus on steak and seafood. It's the type of place where I always feel as though a martini is a must and good red wine completes the steak dinner. Classics like iceberg wedge salad, escargot and traditional steak sides are offered alongside seasonal specials and on trend items. The night we dined, they had a soft shell crab appetizer that was delicious. The wait staff are truly professional waiters and they provide the level of attention and customer service appropriate to the environment (and cost). The only downside is that the noise level can get high. We had an early dinner (6 pm) and even then, it quickly got noisy. Still, we love Chops."

  • " We had a disconnect between the server and the man that supplied us the bread butter and our water.We told the server no ice in the water it's understandable that the more people eat and git the more tips the server gets.but we tip 20% pre-dine around card. getting a appetizer and then three minutes later being asked what we want for an entrée is a little much.we also brought our own bottle of wine because my friend is a wine critic and it was from Pennsylvania.she had planned to take any that was left with her.the server grabbed the cork from a bottle before we noticed.he got us another cork but said he was out of the seal lock bags that I believe are necessary to be able to carry a open bottle of wine in your vehicle."

  • "My husband and I went to Chops to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. Overall the service was excellent. The servers worked as a team and everyone was attentive to our every need. We started our meal with calamari and escargot, both were excellent, the best we ever had. We've had calamari at other Buckhead Life Restaurants, but this was by far the best. Even the bread was irresistible. Our filets were melt in your mouth tender and seasoned to perfection. We completed our meal with the complimentary bread pudding on a plate adorned with Happy 29th Anniversary which was a nice touch and absolutely delicious. Chops is our new favorite restaurant and we can wait to go back."

  • "My wife and I had eaten at Chops before and really enjoy the restaurant. This time out, we had their signature lobster appetizer; the only bad part is when its all gone. My wife ordered the special, filet Oscar, but, asked that the hollandaise be brought out on the side; this request was overlooked and we had to send it back. However, with the exception of that one little faux pas, our evening at Chops was delightful and I would recommend it to anyone."

  • "We have counted on Chops for exceptional food and service for our special occasions for many years. Sadly we will need to look elsewhere. Our last visit prior to Friday night was perhaps an indication of continued downward trend. Friday nights experience will confirm that we will not be back. Unfortunately, we could not easily understand our waiter. For over 30 minutes at adjacent table one of the managers talked to adjacent patrons. When another manager stopped to ask us how things were going my wife mentioned the continued banter at the next table and he did nothing. My dry-aged ribeye was tough and lacked flavor and my wife's lobster tail chewy. Sides were bland."

  • "The reviews say it all great service from everyone including special table request service was attentive but not over the top, steak and escargot fantastic, the lobster tail a little tough, wine list is terrific and reasonable prices will definitely be back"

  • "We had the best time. We showed up a whole week early and they still sited us. We had the porterhouse for two, broccoli and mac & cheese (which was the best I have ever tasted). The staff was very helpful and fun."

  • "After spending $500 (on dinner for 3) the valet was unable to get us a taxi. We were told we had a taxi waiting when we left. When we got downstairs, we were told there were no taxis available. It was recommended we download "Uber" (and get a ride from strangers?). We found it amazing that a restaurant like Chops would not have a few cabs at their disposal."

  • "Friend and I shared several items which the servers divided beautifully without being asked. Best Caesar Salad I've had in a long while -- topped with a perfectly poached organic egg. Irresistible bread. Absolutely superb service that made us feel valued."

  • "It was extremely noisy! Could not talk or hear the person next to us! They should do something a bout it . It's ok when they are not full but when full it's unbearable!"

  • "Gnat population inside the restaurant was simply unacceptable, initially causing one glass & wine to be destroyed by early shooing, after accident it seemed better to let second wine sipper to drink fill into oblivion. Body count on the table cloth rose to 9 thru dessert. But since we love dining at Chops we will definitely return."

  • "As always. The bartender made a fabulous vodka gimlet with fresh lime juice -- yum! The table service was courteous but a bit slow."

  • "We have been to Chops several times and have always found the food to be excellent. This trip was no exception. My husband and son-in-law thought the crab cakes, which were virtually all crab and no "cake", were the best they have ever had. The sole, baby spinach and mushroom salad, and bone-in fillet were particular highlights. The fresh corn mash was to-die-for and much better than any creamed corn. Our only disappointment was our table. When we arrived at 7:00 PM, the restaurant was less than half full. We asked to be seated at one of many empty booths and were told they were reserved -- though booths remained empty all evening until we left at 9:15."

  • "Service was good, and food was excellent. We used to come all the time but had stopped for a bit when our last 2 experiences weren't good (service had deteriorated, and the food wasn't good anymore--not to mention the triple-cut lamb chops weren't available anymore). Decided it wasn't worth the drive. When we heard our favorite lamb chops were available again and had a free night to come, we decided to give it another go. The service was much improved, and the food was delicious. We'll be stopping by more often."

  • "Upon entering we learned their A/C died yesterday. The rented portable A/C units were loud and the overall room temperatures were all over the scale depending on how close to the portable A/C units you were located. The whipped sweet potatoes were room temperature, we sent them back. The replacement was even colder. We switch to another side. The steak and service was great. This was the first bad experience we have had at Chops."

  • "My wife and I have been choosing Chops for our special occasion dinners for over 12 years. We have to drive over 100 miles round trip so we look for proven restaurants and great service when making our choices. Chops never fails to provide what we are looking for."

  • "The food and service were great as usual, but the air conditioning went out at 5:30 so by our 7:30 reservation it was pretty warm in there. The servers handled it well despite their uniforms and jackets. Most of the women in my group had on sleeveless dresses but even so we had to cut our dining experience short- no dessert or after dinner drinks- because it was just too hot for us. That is the reason for the low score on ambience. I guess it cannot be helped but it is unfortunate to pay that kind of money and travel so far to be that uncomfortable."

  • "Chops is pricey but if you but if you split the Ribeye, add a lobster tail and a couple of sides you can have a great dinner for $100."

The waiter was very friendly and could answer all of our questions. We were there celebrating an award that I had won from my career and the waiter brought us an amazing bread pudding with Congratulations written on the plate in chocolate! So wonderful! Everything was positive about our evening at chops!"

  • "I have been to Chops numerous times and have always had a pretty good experience with the food and service. Last week was pretty bad. The server seemed like there were 100 places he would rather be. Drinks took a long time to get to the table. They brought me the wrong steak AND the wrong salad and seemed to have the attitude that I should just deal with it and eat what they brought me. There are way too many choices in Atlanta to deal with that level of service."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Having eaten at Buckhead Dining Group restaurants multiple times (including Chops), we went to Chops with high expectations. With our main courses, our expectations were met and exceeded. My steak and my husband's swordfish were OUTSTANDING, as were our side dishes. However, the rolls and bread served with dinner and the dessert after dinner (chocolate toffee pie) were sub-par, at best. Definitely need a new baker in this restaurant, not to mention some wait staff training. This was the worst service we have ever had at a BLG restuarant. Our server was completely inattentive, resulting in frustration and long waits for us. Very disappointing, and had this been our first BLG or Chops experience, it would have been our last."
