    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.

    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.

There was too much to try everything. Mini desserts were awesome too, Even the coffee was great. We did not even get to the breakfast foods, but they sure looked good. We will go back

    One of the top restaurant experiences we have had. The staff was very accommodating and was able to get us a table outside for our anniversary. We had a nice and quiet table overlooking the golf course. Julie was a fantastic server she knew her stuff and was even able to find some candles for us as it was starting to get dark during our meal. A great classic steak house, the food was cooked to perfection.

Most recently we celebrated our first year anniversary and were treated to a complimentary dessert and coffee. The steak was exquisite as was the grouper.

    At a steak house I had the salmon and my partner had the grouper. SO...while they were good they were not the specialty of the house. Everything looked good and service was pretty good. It is not a quiet meal. View from the windows is excellent (about 6 tables) and it was a great night to watch a storm move through. Inside the Grand Geneva Resort, so a great value it is not. We had superb steak the night before at Merrill's and Houston's in Beloit, IL - that was great steak and a great value.

    We have been to the chop house several times. We even may go there when not staying at the Grand Geneva, because of the ambiance and lovely setting. This time, however, we were quite disappointed in the food. I ordered a dry aged rib eye medium rare. What I received was a very plain rib eye done medium to done. The taste was not what I had come to expect from the chop house. My wife's filet was a bit over done and chewy as well. I must say the service was outstanding and the view, as always, marvelous. I was just very disappointed in the meal preparation.

    After coming to the Chop House for many years we had heard the food quality had taken a turn for the worse so decided to see for ourselves. The rumors were right. They couldn't get anything right from the tonic in the drinks that tasted like soda to the prime rib that had been reheated to the Luke warm double baked. Stay away till they get this fixed as they clearly have big issues inn the kitchen. On a side note the usually pristine gardens were littered with weeds and bare spots. Very out of character for Grand Geneva.

    It seems that the Geneva Chophouse should be a great restaurant. However, I did not experience this during my visit. My family and I dined at the same time as a large party, and our service and dining experience suffered as a result. We waited an hour for our entrees, most of our food arrived cold, our steak and seafood were overcooked, and our server disappeared for long periods of time. We were told we got "caught behind a large party", but no apologies (or anything else) were offered in consolation. Very disappointing. On the flip side, my kids were fascinated by the chef cooking the steaks (the kitchen is open to the dining room and can be viewed by pratons). He provided them great entertainment during our long wait.

    Our waiter forgot about us prior to the main course. Other service representatives picked up the slack very well regarding all of our needs. We figured he was hired for the summer and somewhat inexperienced even though he tried to portray otherwise as we conversed with him regarding the food dishes, wine, applying gift certificates. Overall we were very pleased.

    We have honestly never had a bad experience at Geneva Chophouse. The staff, the food...everything is top notch! The filets were cooked as ordered, our trio of sides (lobster mac & cheese, loaded baked potato & mashed potatoes) were delicious. Excellent wine selection. The Korean beef lettuce wraps were a good appetizer choice. Our server surprised us with a special birthday/anniversary dessert to cap off the evening. Can't wait to go back!

    This was our second visit. The steak, unlike the first visit, was dried out and had visible black singes. NY strip is among the most flavorful steaks around. This time, it lacked flavor. Very disappointing, especially given the price. The shrimp entree was soupy and not nearly as succulent as shrimp can be. The wedge salad was perfect. The service was great. The view is great. Salads and service, however, can not make up for food that can only be described as "good."

    Had a table by the window overlooking lake which was best part of experience. Our waitress was very friendly, and she had a large party at another table but she barely ever checked back, especially in the beginning to see if we wanted more drinks. Food was good but not great for the price, although the clam chowder was best any of us had ever had. One person in our party ordered a $45+ ribeye special and the steak was tough and full of gristle. They were offered a different steak or a salad ?? instead, which was kind of weird, but did provide free dessert. Glad that was free too, molten chocolate cake was tiny and sure not worth $10 menu price! Food was warm, not hot. Would consider going back but for lunch or brunch, probably not dinner.
