    Wonderful high quality ingredients & everything but their premier TRIPLE PORTERHOUSE prepared to perfection. Wanted a pink tinged crisp outside steak, but got a blood raw. Sent it back not once, not twice but three times & still was just medium rare. Each time just passed through the kitchen for a few seconds before being retuned to our table. Manager admitted that they always undercook to the order intentionally, but who knew! Continued to insist that their way was correct and that I did not how to order or EAT their food. Only eating & cooking for 70 years! Waiter abandoned responsibility. Should check preparation was as ordered before serving. We specified color & texture, (above), not something generic like just past medium.

    I have been dining at Chops in both Georgia and Boca Raton for many years now. The level of service and the quality of food are top notch. The menu is extensive and can accommodate all ages. On my most recent visit I dined with my wife and 2 children ages 12 and 10 who love the young diners menu. Just go and enjoy yourself. It is one of the few local high end restaurants that offer the Bone-in Filet and also dare to lightly pan fry a huge Lobster Tail.

    We have enjoyed Chops many times. We celebrated my birthday and our wedding anniversary that night. We were just finishing our first course when the main course arrived ! It was too fast, so we sent it back. The good news is that management apologized for the poor service , which was the fault of the kitchen, not our waiter. We were treated to dinner by the manager , with his apology. That was a very professional manner to insure that we were appreciated as customers and that we shall return!

    On the most crowded night we ever encountered, service remained professional against all odds. There were so many young children, too! (Most surprising for such as upscale eatery on a Friday night) Filet mignon was as perfect as always, (all steaks were superb).side dishes of mushrooms, onion rings were superb. SPectacular Cheesecake-incredible size portions. Great welcome from the staff and management compete a delightful evening.

    The food is tired and played out! They need a chef with fresh ideas to come in and really revamp the menu. The plates were tiny, the steaks dried out and please pass up on the fried lobster. Why would you fry a lobster? I was looking for a great experience not so much!!!

    We dined at Chops to celebrate a birthday. The selections on the $49 menu were excellent. I chose the Prime NY Strip, another member of our group chose the 1 1/2 lb lobster. Both meals were perfectly cooked and delicious. The $49 menu really is a good value when you consider all the great food and service. I'll be back!

    We had dinner here on Saturday evening. I requested the table that I wanted and was given it. I started off with the Oysters Rockefeller, which were cooked to perfection. My hubby and friend, ordered from the special menu, which had some great choices. They both order for an app. the Jumbo Shrimp and crab app. For dinner I ordered the petite fillet, which was excellent. My hubby ordered the fillet also which came with fresh vegetables, and our friend ordered the Surf & Turf. She loved it. Side dishes that I ordered were the Potatoes lyonnaise & Creamed Spinach. The best. A bit on the expensive side, but worth it.

    First time at Chops (which came highly recommended) and it did not disappoint! Service is INCREDIBLE! Very attentive, very helpful, always around (but not invasive!). One guest at off the $49 three course meal and it was outstanding! Although 3 deserts are listed you can swap for any one. It is worth the price!! Definitely going to go back, and try the one in Fort Lauderdale! A must!

    My bride and I celebrated our 34th anniversary at this Boca Raton gem. From all aspects; the reception, decor, atmosphere, quality of food, and the highest level of service excellence...Chops Oyster Bar excels. We've dined at most of the Atlanta based Buckhead group and would definitely recommend this star! A bit pricey, but well worth it for a special evening.

    Most everything was good. I particularly wanted to eat at Chops because the last tie I was there I failed to order Dover sole. It is one of my favorites and is not on many menus. To my disappointment, my sole was a bit over cooked and I probably should have asked for butter and lemon instead of capers etc. My husband had the lobster with stuffed lobster, but wished it had been a bit larger. All the others (4) had no complaints that I know of.

    This was the first time my wife and I ate at Chops and we loved it. We appreciated the personalized attention from the manager and wait staff. We both are foodies, so we are hard to impress, but the food here was excellent. You can not go wrong with the flash fried lobster if you love seafood. We capped it off with the award winning banana cream pie.
