A word from Denver Chophouse
You'll find the comfortable, warm-wooded restaurant filled with a crowd as diverse as the menu there for a special occasion or a casual gathering. The nostalgic feel, including the sounds of Big Band 30's and 40's coupled with a current menu with generous portions gives the Denver ChopHouse its approachable, yet upscale contemporary style. Handcrafted ales brewed on-site, small batch bourbons, and a fine array of single malt scotches all add to the ChopHouse tradition.

    Service was Good and would have been great but they forgot soup and salad that we ordered as sides for two of our party. Food was good and would have been great except my steak was undercooked ( I asked for medium and it was closer to rare. Also baked potato was kinda undercooked.) Others in our party though loved their meals. Appetizers kinda small for the price. Atmosphere was enjoyable. Overall Great time and Good experience.

    Booked my brother's bachelor party for 10 online. I called in and upped the count to 14, and had a surprise extra on the actual day. The staff handled all of this in stride and everything went off without a hitch. The service was excellent and was able to keep everyone's drink full and everyone got the right order despite there being 15 people.

    For what I thought was a high end restaurant, the service was ridiculously bad. After finishing my first cocktail waiter asked if I wanted another, I replied no but I'd like to see the beer menu. Five minutes later here he comes with another cocktail. There were three of us dining, two of our orders came with the wrong side. I asked for a baked potato, for rice. He brought me a potato in a bowl, uncut. As far as we could tell we were his only table. Disappointing to spend $200 on a meal and receive that kind of service. Have had better service and better food at Texas Roadhouse. Won't be back.

    Went here to celebrate winning a couple of medals at GABF and was disappointed in the food and the beer, especially for the price. Had the pilsner to start with and had to send it back due to heavy oxidation. Ended up with the IPL and it was better. Food was about the same. Had the top sirloin and it was a not as tender as I would expect for the price. The asparagus was woody and the carrots undercooked. Server was very good and very attentive. Service was the highlight of the evening by far.

    I have been coming to The Denver Chophouse for years and have always enjoyed myself. However, it has obviously gone down hill. I ordered the Prime Rib, which was probably the worst I've EVER had. My boyfriend asked for his steak to be cooked well done. When he got it, it was shoe leather ... Burnt to a crisp! Last time we will dine here!

    I ordered a Rib Eye, the restraraunt's most expensive steak at $49, and when it came it looked like a flank steak. It was not a very good cut of meat. You can get much better at the Texas Road House. There were also a couple items missing when the food was served. Upon bringing up the issue with the steak and the missing items the server, Orion, seemed to not care. The service was poor at best.

    I've been a fan of the DCH for a decade When we arrived at 7:45 the place was hopping, but not on a wait. We waited more than 10 mins for a waitress to address us, more than 20 mins after that for our first drinks. The waitress didn't come back for our main course order until we were finished our appetizer. My $45 steak was terribly overcooked, but recovered in just a few minutes and delicious after that. The place just wasn't on its game and at their new, higher menu prices, it's just not worth the risk of a date night. Sorry DCH, you're off the list :(

    I took 10 for dinner before a Rockies' fireworks game. Surprisingly, the restaurant was not full. We waited 45+ minutes for our food to be served, I ordered a rare burger; it was well done. The mashed potatoes were lukewarm. After the food was served, we never saw the waiter again until it was time to present the check, so I didn't have an opportunity to tell him about the problems with my meal. And, because it took so long to get the food, I wouldn't have waited for the chef to prepare another burger anyway. I once worked across the street from the Chophouse and ate there often; the food and service were outstanding. My last two visits were disappointing, so I'm not sure I want to chance a third disappointment.

    I wanted to love this restaurant but I cannot lie. I was unimpressed. The decor definitely had you stepping back in time. The wine was amazing. The spinach artichoke dip was really good, but the prime rib was by far the fattiest piece of prime rib I've ever eaten in my life. I threw half of it away because it was all fat. I had to be in Boulder and it was my boyfriends birthday so I didn't want to make a scene by a sending it back. The "aus ju" they put on it was a thicker sauce that literally made it taste like a hot dog. Gross. The server also seemed to be unhappy to be there. When you're making $20 minimum per table, I don't understand why you would not be happy about that. For a hundred dollar dinner, I expected a better experience.

    My husband and I have been enjoying the Chop House for the past 20 years. We celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary there on Fri, Sept 12. I have never received bad food or service at the Chop House, but my steak was overdone. The waitress wasn't very accommodating. She did bring me a different dish which was good. However, she avoided our table, never refilling water or paying any attention to our table. We felt that since we had noted the dish was not prepared properly she was angry at us and didn't treat us very well. We are now hesitant to call the Chop House our favorite Denver resturant.

    We came in for lunch, there were about 8 of us from the office. The waitress did spill a tray of drinks on a couple of my co-workers to start the party. She quickly apologized and cleaned everything up. We then had to wait for about 10+ minutes to get our food orders placed. The food was fantastic as always. We were given three comped desserts to share to apologize for the drinks being spilled. We will continue to visit the Chop House as we normally do, but this was slowest and sloppiest event we have ever had at the Chop House. i probably could have rated it a bit lower but we spend lots of time and money in the Chop House company wide, and mostly all of our other times have been wonderful.

    I made a reservation for the weekend that family was in town. It ended up being the perfect dinner! We arrived early and got drinks at the bar, which made the time pass quickly. Our waitress was excellent, although I don't remember her name. Food was perfect, and we even got my brother's girlfriend to try the steak. She loved it, and she never eats red meat, so that's saying a lot. I will recommend this place to everyone looking for a steakhouse, or a restaurant in general. Thanks for the great night!

    I have dined at the Chophouse many times. On this occasion, when it was not crowded at all as it usually is, the service was terrible. The waiter was inattentive. There was no reason for him to ignore providing the service that is to be expected at a restaurant of this caliber. The food was fine but not worth experiencing bad service.
