    The steaks here are excellent. Rival the best steakhouses in Chicago at 2/3 the price. Not cheap, but a great value. We travel from the Chicago Suburbs to eat here instead of eating locally for this reason.

    The Chop House never disappoints. The menu offers a selection for any type of eater. Every meal feels like a celebration. An absolute favorite. Our server went to another in-house restaurant for a bottle of wine not on the Chop House wine list. One guest's tuna was grainy and hard to cut but was replaced with another meal option immediately. That's why I gave the food a 4 star rating.

    We dined at Geneva Chophouse twice during our weekend at the Grand Geneva. The first time was for dinner and the food was amazing. We couldn't have had a better experience. The second time was for the brunch buffet. Unfortunately, the food was not as good the second time around. Nothing on the buffet line was very hot. The food was lukewarm and so was the coffee. Although the service was great each time.

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    My girlfriend and I decided to plan a trip to celebrate dating for one year, and we set our eyes on Lake Geneva. This is one of the nicest restaurants I have ever been in, and although it was certainly the most expensive meal I have ever paid for, it was certainly worth it. I understand young people can be rude, but our waitress (possibly the hostess) was not so keen on our company. We were the youngest couple there. My girlfriend had some white wine and chicken, and I, a root beer and pork chops. The food was excellent. The waitress seemed to resent us being there. It almost seemed as though she assumed we would not pay for the whole meal, which we did, or tip very well. We tipped 10%, and would have tipped 15%, if she were not so rude.

    The food was delicious, the atmosphere was comfortable, and the staff were all amazing. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary and I'm so glad we chose the Chophouse. The food was cooked well. We both had steaks and they were both prepared perfectly. The prices are on the high side, at least what we are used to, but this place seems to be a more "special occasion" type of restaurant vs an everyday type. it was especially handy since we were staying at the Grand Geneva so it was a quick walk. I was very impressed overall and highly recommend it.

    The steak was difficult to cut. The portion size of the side items was small. We had to move to a new table because the neighboring table was too loud for our party to hear each other in conversation. Getting refills on drinks took 20 minutes.

    I am a restaurant manager, which unfortunately tends to alter my view of other places when dining out and doesn't always allow my to enjoy the experience as much. I attended as an anniversary celebration dinner and The Chophouse exceeded my expectations, which can be difficult to do. They offered far more than a good meal, which a lot of places forget to do. The entire experience was lovely, the steak was very good, service (not only by the server but support staff too) was just right. It was a memorable evening and I would certainly return!

    Dined here for a special occasion and everything was first class. Service was exceptional. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth yummy! We purchased fine Cabernet by the glass and the serving size was very generous. Great view through the picture window and warm and intimate ambiance. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant to all fine diners and will come here myself again very soon.

    Food was delicious...After dinner, drinks and DJ were nice at club next door. Outdoor fire and view were perfect way to wind down. Only downside, too many business guests in hotel lobby and hallways. Very noisy while trying to enjoy a romantic anniversary dinner. Would not recommend for romantic evening but perfect for gathering with family/friends. Service was okay. Overall the evening was very nice. 3 out of 4 stars.

    When I'm spending $200 or $13 a drink I expect to have my server acknowledge when my glass is 2/3 empty and offer me another one. I don't like to or want to ask and try to get your attention for a refill. We sat outside which was awesome but, we were the first table right outside the door which had no overhead lightening and was never even offered a candle. It would have been much nicer at any of the other tables on the veranda. The heat and view from the fire pit below was perfect. Overall it was very nice! I have dined in other fine establishments and find that sometimes I can be a harsh critic simply because I am paying a lot of money and want to feel like I'm getting everything I am paying for. My pet peeves may not be someone else.

    Decided to take the drive and spend a few hours on site at the Grand Geneva starting with the Sunday brunch. The food was all fresh and the buffet tables were clean and well stocked. Great variety on entrees and sides. Nice homemade fruit crepes with fresh whipped cream. The crab legs were a treat! The wait staff did a terrific job in keeping the beverage glasses full and the plates were taken away quickly.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Steaks, which are quite good, are the feature of the menu. Outside of the steaks, however, the other options are lacking in variety, quantity, creativity, and flavor. At least 3 of the 7 or so sides are potato dishes, and at least 2 of the 7 are vegetables. None of the options really pop. So, I opted for the Caesar salad with grilled chicken. The traditional Caesar doesn't come with croutons, the greens are limp, the cheese is sparse, and the dressing is hard to find in the dish. The chicken was charred on the outside, somewhat dry on the inside, and lacked flavor.

    We are new to the area so we decided to make it a double clutch: the spa for a massage and then the Geneva Chophouse. It is a nice room, a little noisy but mostly in a good vibe way. Our service was very friendly and professional and the food was excellent. We were never shown a wine list but the house wines by the glass were upscale so we went with one of those selections. We had one hitch, one of the steak orders was wrong, a filet instead of prime rib on the bone but the waiter recovered well and comp us some drinks and a desert to compensate for the oversight. Overall the experience was very good and we will return.

    My wife's prime rib was a little grisly and lacked flavor. The brussel sprouts were kind of hard, they could have been cooked a bit longer. My rib eye steak was very good. The rest of the food was very good as well. My wife and I were celebrating our 37th anniversary so the waitress brought us a little desert to share which was very thoughtful. We sat outside and really enjoyed the view and our time together.
