A word from District Chophouse
A classic American gathering place, the District Chophouse & Brewery is conveniently located 1/2 block South of The Verizon Center. We pride ourselves in serving the city's finest handcrafted beers and succulent steaks, mouthwatering chops, tasty seafood, and over-sized salads. Once you've eaten here, you'll agree the 'DC' stands for District Chophouse.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I used to love the salads here. The chopped chicken was dry. The lettuce was mostly iceberg and whitish. The citrus vinagrette was unpleasant. I've had better salads at Wendy's. I won't be going back to this restaurant or recommending it. The service was very good though."

  • "Great except an odd smell near front where we sat."

  • "steaks were way overcooked and tough.tasted good though if it means anything. Seemed as if we had a very poor quality steak.server was good, seemed to disappear for stretches at a time and the place was empty. however my other 2 people in my party had the prime rib and said it was good"

  • "I have frequent the chop house for many years and have to admit for the past two years the food quantily have not been good and was alarmed to find out that they serve PROCESSED food. Can't the cooks cook a REAL turkey AND the portions are very small and have cut back considerably for the price. If I am going to pay $42.00 for a meal I want to FEEL full, I'm not paying for the fancy designs on my plates I want FOOD! The last couple of times I have visited was not good. Not sure if I would go back or tell anybody about it. Clyde's and Legal Seafood will be my next venture. Sorry Chop House you're not up to par."

  • "We were a big group for lunch (16) but we happen to suffer the most from the computer breaking down and our orders having to be inputted manually. Everyone else around us was served their lunch within 15-20 minutes but we had to wait over an hour."

  • "I was there on a work dinner with some volunteers I work with, and they loved it. The server was attentive and she had a great attitude. The food and drinks were served quickly and everything was hot and delicious. I would definitely come here again."

  • "This was a bit disappointing. The beer was okay however the food was bland. The calamari was rubbery and the breading didn't stay on. I can cook a much better steak at home. To top it all off, the waiter wasn't particularly good and seemed annoyed we were there. With all of the othe good restaurants around, I won't be back."

  • "This high end establishment disappointed me. My service attendant was not attentive and the food was tasteless and bland. I had the Colorado Trout with sauteed spinach and pecan wild rice pilaf. My date order the pan sear roasted chicken and a buttermilk bleu cheese and tomatoe salad which was never brought out. The waiter forgot to place the order"

  • "I made a reservation for a group of 10 employees for lunch. I actually made it after canceling a reservation at Clydes when they said they couldn't do noon (but could do 11:45 or 12:15) and could not do separate checks and could only take 4 credit cards. I cannot overstate how accommodating and flexible the staff at District Chop House were. My group showed up in stages (and 1 not at all). No problem! We needed separate checks, but needed apps split across the group. Of course! Drink refills, extra sauce, to go containers. Easy! To top it all off, everyone loved their food. I would definitely go here again."

  • "I have dined here before and usually like my food. I tried something different, the Rachel. It wa very bland. The turkey was just warm with no flavor. I would not order it again. However, I would eat at the restaurant again because I do like some of the othe dishes I have tried."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We arrived at 10:15 and was rushed throughout the evening. The dinner orders were incorrect and the food some orders were cold. Server had a poor attitude as well as the manager. We were not accommodated at all. Thank you."

  • "Booked a reservation for brunch on Saturday (July 5). They weren't very busy at all while we were there, which meant it was very quiet and allowed for conversation. Our server was fantastic and very attentive! Our drinks were never dry and he made sure we had everything we needed. The cornbread they bring out to start is DELICIOUS! Just a hint of sweet that you don't even have to add the honey butter (which is super yum!). I had the Banker's Omelette and was able to substitute the brunch potatoes for sweet potato fries at no additional charge! I thought this was a nice touch since most places charge extra. Friends had steak/eggs and another a burger. All delicious! Everything here is made from scratch in their kitchen, which I love!"

  • "The restaurant was most accommodating in adjusting our reservation due to our being delayed by travel. The service was friendly and the food excellent though there was a snafu in the kitchen which delayed our order."

  • "Went in with a group of 9. Asked for medium rare steak. Steak was well done. No comps or discount on waiting for food while everyone ate and made everyone wait for me to finish."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Food and service was excellent. I had the special of the day as recommended by the waiter and it was delicious. The noise level wasn't overwhelming so you can have a conversation without raising your voice. I will absolutely be back."

  • "I'm happy to review the open table restaurants with your multiple choice, but I do not always have time to write an essay. The essay review should be optional. I often skip a review in total to avoid the task of a written essay review."

  • "We are regular diners at the Chophouse--the food is consistently good, as is the beer. It is particularly welcoming when there is no event at the Verizon Center, because the crowds make it quite a bit noisier."

  • "What a great night we had! 6 of us met here from out if town to attend a wedding. It was a perfect place to catch up, no stress to leave, relaxing and the fun was great! Our server was very nice, but could have been more attentive... One person in iur party never did receive the salad dressing he had requested. I have already recommended this to others.... We would go back again!!!"

  • "well, this was the first time at the restaurant, there were four of us, business dinner with a customer. Te service was great, the chopped salad was great, the drinks were sizable and great. Two of ordered steaks that were recommended by the server, Delmonico I believe. Both steaks were cooked perfectly but we were both disappointed in the tenderness, or lack thereof. I don't mid marbling but tough connective tissue that's not chew-able was throughout, we were very disappointed in the steak...and it was expensive."

  • "We had a large group of 11 people and It was great they put us off to the side in almost private area But, we were not checked on that often as we were not in the waitress's normal section."

  • "Our waiter was friendly and helpful. He was able to assist us in accommodating a slightly larger group without any problems. The food was very good and timely for a Thanks"

  • "I often end up here. I am always really happy with their house microbrews, and the food is good. The old building gives it a nice ambiance, the bar is cozy, and I almost never have to wait for a table."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Hostess asked if we could wait a few minutes because a booth was coming available which was thoughtful; this gave us an opportunity to sit at the bar. The bar was great for watching sports-several tvs and the World Cup was on. The menu had a good selection and the food was very good with generous portions - Caesar salad a little overdressed but tasty, prime rib and NY strip, and excellent parmesan mashed potatoes. The wine list was somewhat limited (most wines we find at Safeway). Nice ambience and great service. Pretty vibrant atmosphere."

  • "Wanted to spend some relaxing time with family & remembered District Chophouse; although it had been a good while since I last visited. Family was impressed, I was reimpressed. We had a lovely dining experience."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food was average. Overly salty. My plate was cold and fish was over cooked. I was going to send it back but didn't want to wait for another 25 mins for my meal. Overall it was dissappointing. Too bad the restaurant is so close to my house"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "DC Chophouse is a good place to bring friends, family, colleagues, and clients, looking for a basic well-prepared meal, where your conversation will probably be the focal point, not the food. I often use it when old friends suddenly drop into town and we want to catch up over a dependable and tasty American-style meal near where I work. Excellent beer selection and very good wait-staff."

  • "I was ignored for 5 minutes, then was incorrectly told my guest had not arrived. When in fact they arrived before I did and checked in."

  • "Six of us had lunch here. The service was excellent; the waitress was friendly and attentive. The onion rings were delicious. All of the entrees were good but not superb. This place is solid but not special."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Nice restaurant for a casual dinner. Appetizer portions were much smaller that I'd expect (it looked like we got what was left of the batch of calamari, perhaps) but tasty. The steaks ordered by our table were ok, but I didn't enjoy my pork chop very much (sort of tasted like something you might find in a hospital cafeteria.) Mashed potatoes were good. Our waitress was lovely but seems she may have been covering too many tables, as our wait was quite long for receiving drinks, appetizers, etc."

  • "I took my hubby out for father's day and we had never been here. Excellent service, food delicious. Would come here in a heartbeat."

  • "I love chophouse and have been many time. However the last two times we've been, the steaks have been overcooked. My friends fish was dry and two out of three steaks were 100% overcooked. Step it up chophouse you're falling behind."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The honey chicken sandwich tasted "gamey," like it was reheated before serving. My dining partner's steak and wedge was sloppy, undercooked, and the server said he could "go heat that up for you." The server was odd, not well trained. Neither of us at even half of our meal and were very disappointed."

  • "I've had a subscription to the nearby Shakespeare Theater for many years, and always eat at the DC Chophouse before the show because the food's so good. I'm an old lady who doesn't drink, so I can't review the interesting and varied beer menu. But the steak is so good that even after a piece has been in my freezer for a month, it makes a sandwich to die for. (The servings are large, so I often take some of it home). The service is uniformly excellent, not always true for old ladies dining alone, and the ambiance is very pleasant. The free corn bread, served in a skillet, is also excellent. I always look forward to eating there."

  • "Our group of five arrived early and enjoyed a few minutes of happy hour at the bar. Great beer and service. Our table was ready as scheduled, and we ordered an array of steaks and seafood dishes. Everyone of us was very satisfied with their meals, the service was excellent, and all in all it was a wonderful evening."
