    After reading the reviews I was excited about the evenings dinner. Upon arriving I found the parking to be a bit hard to come by, the place needs a little updating with paint. My wife and I where sat at a table for 6 (which is all they have by the windows) Our waitress was outstanding and was trained very well. She offered many ideas on selections and was spot on. The food was very good and came to us hot. The owner spent a lot of time talking with one table, matter of fact came by many times to that table.... as a owner myself he needs to learn he had other patrons and should consider spreading his attention.

    Upon arrival the staff was great in accommodating our seating requests (moved a party of 8 from upstairs to downstairs to accommodate a get who had issues with all the stairs). We were also pleasantly surprised with our meals. Especially the ribs, fried shrimp & brisket! Some of us have been to Elevation on several previous occasions & we weren't a fan of the food in the past. But this time, it was delicious! The food is a bit on the pricey side ($20 for 8 shrimp & $24 for a slab of ribs w/fries), but it's worth it for a special occasion in Cobb. Definitely worth trying if you've never been & you have to get one of the Liquid Nitrogen Margaritas or Martinis!

    The food was fine, prices were good, the service was mediocre. No smiles or thanks for coming. I had to ask the waiter for appetizer plates. He did other things while our food got cold. Overall not bad. It was my son's birthday and he mainly wanted to see planes take off and land.

    Took my family here for a nice dinner. We had some really good food. Only issue was my son had really salty chicken fingers which he couldn't eat. However the waitress was great and brought him some grilled instead. They really need to have a kids menu that the parents can look at, even if it's something basic.

    Elevation Chop House is the complete package. My wife and I are airplane nuts, so the runway view is probably our main attraction. Love seeing the delight in young kid's eyes as corporate jets, cessnas, Blackhawks and Ospreys distract them from the food;-) Someone ordering a liquid nitrogen martini always seems to spark the energy to a new level. Fav food is the Ribeye medium rare w/ Caesar salad. The Ribeye is big enough that my wife and I usually split it. Loaded baked potato has a nicely salted and crispy skin. Just 'changed it up' last night w/ the backin cheeseburger; very good burger. Service has been great this last year. Not sure if there was a change in mgmt, but the staff have stepped up their game and complete the experience.

    Went to Elevation Chophouse with my teen kids. Service was great. Very attentive, professional, polite and even engaged my teens in conversation. Food was exceptional this time. We had lime caesar salad, calamari (a favorite of ours), filet and two burgers. Everything cooked as ordered, medium, and well seasoned. Will be back...hopefully soon.

    Drinks were great. We order the Big Calamari for an app. I think it was little over cooked. One party member had the salmon it was very good and tender, another party had the chop burger which melted like butter in your mouth. I ordered the brisket which was very tender, but barely seasoned. We all tasted each other's food to get a variety of the place. The one thing we were NOT impressed with was the mashed potatoes!!!! They are instant mash potatoes with chunks of real potatoes to throw you off. You wouldn't think it would be that hard just make a batch of real good mashed potatoes!!!! Its a neighborhood gem and late-night find for their drinks and if you really want a good burger.

    My girlfriend and I were looking for a place for dinner on a Saturday evening and decided to give Elevation a try after driving past everyday. We were pleased with the service and the atmosphere. The price was not incredibly over priced, slightly expensive but what you should expect for the place. The food for decent, we had salmon and brisket. We both were pleased with our meal but I want to try the steak next time I go back and the brunch menu looks outstanding.

    We had dinner at Elevation Chophouse on Saturday night and were very pleased with the food and service. I had mahi mahi over a bed of risotto and a side of spinach. It was delicious! My partner had the beef brisket and it so tender he didn't need a sharp knife. We went on a Living Social coupon - it was out first time. I would definitely go there again. A little obscure to find - so use your GPS!

    Highly recommended for a completely enjoyable experience. Food, service and atmosphere were all worthy of a 5 star rating. Food was prepared and seasoned to perfection. We had the Rock Shrimp appetizer and my wife chose the Angus burger while I chose the Ribeye. We both felt the meal was easily on the level with 5 star provisions.

    Ok does not mean bad. We had a groupon and was celebrating a birthday with a party of 4. For the price, the experience was ok, but maybe not without the groupon. The service person did not know the food/bar menus-maybe she was new? She kept running back and forth to the service station/bar when we had questions. Filets were cooked to order and without issues. The ribs and risotto was good but the fries with lemon pepper were a little odd. The creme brulee was good. The table side liquid nitrogen margarita was fun. Overall my expectations were higher given the $30/main plates. If the service was more professional/informed and there was a little polish to the booths, tables, floors, it might be worth the value.

    This visit to Elevations Chophouse was for my daughter's 17th birthday. Elevations is on of our most favorite restaurants. We were seated immediately in the upper level dining area. Our party was of 7, and we were seated at the windows. Planes were coming and going during our entire meal. I had the Caribbean Mahi Mahi. It was great! Daughter#2 and husband had shrimp fettuccini. They both raved about it. Daughter#1 had the chicken parm. This is what she always gets. Another ordered salmon which looked amazing! Two steaks were ordered and looked fantastic as well. This was not our first experience, nor will it be our last!!!

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    This place has a lot going for it even though it's on a Tarmac at an airport wedged between a quarry, industry and a less than attractive stretch of US41. The food was well prepared and presented - very solid contemporary American fare. We enjoyed our filet, mac-n-cheese, Parmesan risotto and salads. The table-side nitrogen cocktails were novel, delicious and will definitely bring a smile to your face. The view of the airport was interesting and the restaurant does boast probably the best view of Kennesaw Mountain aside from the Georgian Club. Our only complaint was that the UGA game was going on and patrons were overly enthusiastic about the home team winning, which did give a sports bar feel at times. We will definitely return!

    When we first drove to Elevation Chop House, we were surprised to find it actually on the airport property. We actually drove past it first! Once we realized it was actually on airport grounds, we followed the signs to the restaurant. The view from the restaurant of Kennesaw Mountain, and the airport's runway, are spectacular. The service was very good, and the food was excellent. I had the brisket, which was very tender, and flavorful. My husband had the chicken parmesan, and said it was very flavorful and rich. We dined with a perfect view of the mountain, and got to see several planes take off and land. We would definitely go back to Elevation. We would also recommend it highly.

    I go to Elevation 2-3 times/year because of the wonderful view at sunset. I've learned to enjoy the view while tolerating the food...until now. They've changed...FOR THE BETTER. The food was good, the wine list is now decent and you cannot beat the airstrip at sunset watching the planes take off and land. My fiancee and I decided last night that we're going to go monthly to Elevation...and that is a shocking statement based on what they've been in the past. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal, wonderful service and a great time.

We all shared the entrees and determined we all had winners. We tried a couple of Nitro Margaritas which were great, as well as the key lime pie and the bread pudding.

We prefer sitting upstairs but there was yet another private party going on so we ended up having to sit downstairs again. The food was very good - the salmon was great and so was the steak. We had the rock shrimp as an appetizer and it was pretty good also. ALWAYS get the nitrogen margarita! It's awesome!
