Hanover Street Chophouse
Great steak houseThere aren't many of these in New Hampshire--a real treat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day Dinner !!My wife Lynda and I love going to the Hanover Street Chop House and our two daughters joined us for Mother's Day Dinner also. It was our daughters first time and they love it and now know why my wife and I call the Hanover Street Chop House our favorite restaurant. The food and service were outstanding as always and we can wait till our next visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining with one exceptionEverything about this restaurant is exceptional and excellent and always a consistent positive dining experience. That being said, one's expectations of superlative food and service are always extremely high which may sometimes cause a less than favorable reaction when a particular dish falls short of those expectations. Such was the case with the Mother's Day "leg of lamb" special which though highly touted proved to lack tenderness and superior meat quality. The chewiness and texture of the meat proved to be a disappointment when both cutting a portion or attempting to eat and swallow.
Based on the usual hight standards for such an offering, I would be reluctant to reorder this dish. Otherwise, everything else was perfect and memorable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing adult dinnerWhen looking for a special night for 2, Hanover Street Chop House was first on our list! We had a great experience. The food was perfectly cooked and delicious. Would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a great spot who is ok with paying a little extra. Well worth it for both atmosphere and food quality.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Steakhouse in ManchesterA friend recommended this place to us for our anniversary dinner and we are glad we tried it. An outstanding steakhouse in downtown Manchester, NH. As good as any of the big players in Boston without the stuffy and often loud businessmen ambiance. Wonderful service from our waiter Richard. Manager/Chef Stuart made us feel very welcome - as if we were old friends. Pricy but we still highly recommend it for a special occasion or no occasion at all! Just loved it!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent RestaurantI took my boyfriend to the Chophouse before the Barry Manilow concert on Thurs, May 9th. We drove up from Boston. I wish the restaurant was closer so that we can dine there more often. Our waiter was phenomenal and the food was great from the appetizers to the dessert. I had the surf and turf. My tenderloin was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the special, the tomahawk steak. It was like nothing we had ever seen before. My boyfriend is a bit picky with restaurants and said that was the best steak he has ever had and we dine out often and have been to most of the big steak houses. We will definitely try to make another trip there in the future maybe for a special occasion.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fantasitc meal atAnother fantasitc meal at the Chophouse with excellent service from Craig. Surf and Turb sooo good5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion Family DinnerWhen it was decided we would get together for dinner to welcome a visiting relative, there was no doubt where we all wanted to go. Between the food (we all had oysters before dinner on this visit) the exceptional service and the comfortable setting it was once again the perfect choice in Manchester to entertain guests. A 6pm reservation on a Thursday night is impossible to come by-book ahead if you can. There were a number of large tables of executives (men in ties) enjoying themselves. It's the same theory you use when trying to find a good diner-follow a truck driver. If you are looking for a good fine dining restaurant -follow the guys with a large expense account. By the way, bite the bullet and use the valet parking.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch diningFrom appetizers to the final cup of coffee my wife and I couldn't have asked for a better overall experience. The service was phenomenal, the restaurant was spotless and everyone was happy.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLamb Sausage Nirvana by Chef StuartBest way to start a great meal is to be greeted by Yolanda and Tanya! Always willing to go above and beyond to make sure you have a great dining experience. On this night, the amuse was lamb sausage with a goat cheese fondue and red wine Demi glacé accompanied by a puff pastry. Hands down phenomenal! Should be added to the menu!! As usual, steaks were cooked to perfection and the NY prime competes with the best of the best. A heavy hitter to start is the scallops wrapped with bacon! Great combination of pineapple salsa with a tomato purée or relish. The distinct combination of the two is perfect with the scallops and bacon. Really brings out the flavors and textures. Ask for Kristin and she will take great care of you. Kudos to all!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinner in Manchester.Best dinner in Manchester. Wonderful service. Excellent food.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy steak was overcooked soMy steak was overcooked so I had to send it back to the kitchen and wait for a new steak. I had ordered the Filet.
My husband had the bone-in rib-eye which was not very tender at all.
We had heard such wonderful things about the restaurant so we were very disappointed.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time. TheWe had a wonderful time. The food was exceptional as well as our waiter.
We dined with another couple and went on a Sunday at 4pm when they opened, it was the perfect time. The chef even came to our table to make sure our food was fine. We all had a memorable experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the Hanover StreetWe went to the Hanover Street Chophouse prior to heading to Palace Theater for play. We were running late due to late start out and heavy traffic due to venue at the Verizon Center that is just 4 blocks away. I called and let them know we were running late and to hold our table...we ended up being 35 minutes late. Our table was ready when we arrived, and just to add to the confusion there was another party of 2 with the same name-and our name is not common. Food, wine, service and ambiance were all excellent. We would both recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a good steak with a great wine! Excellent restaurant for that special evening or event! A great steakhouse - a rare find these days!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was excellent, I've dinedfood was excellent, I've dined here many times and never been disappointed.

A gem of an establishment in Manchester, NH. My occasion was an intimate business lunch. The choice of venue was perfect, the service (Allan) was top of the line, the food was top of the line, the occasion was a resounding success.

This is on the keeper list for sure, loved it.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the Hanover Street Chop House. The food was very good and although it is a bit on the expensive side it is great for a special occasion. This night was slightly noisy as there was some kind of small party of about a dozen people that were celebrating something and for a while were a bit loud. Aside from this, everything about this place is great and we will be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are delighted with theWe are delighted with the food every time we dine at Hanover Street Chophouse. The new Fish Friday menu is wonderful. I had the baked oyster appetizer - excellent! On a previous Fish Friday I had Lobster Newburg entree on puff pastry shell - outstanding. My husband is hooked on the roasted beet salad and surf and turf entree. We always sit near the kitchen to enjoy watching the chefs at work. The executive chef usually comes over to our table to ask for feedback. Servers are very professional. We couldn't ask for a better dining experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial DinnerThis was a special dinner for a special occasion. A bit pricey, but very worth the experience!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic Chop House. BeautifulClassic Chop House. Beautiful interior, very much the chop house style.

Never disappoints.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI had never been so was pleasantlyI had never been so was pleasantly surprised to find such fantastic food in Manchester. I haven't had food that good since we went to American Seasons on Nantucket. The fried calamari had a delicious, light batter and the lemon, parmesan, and pepperocinis added delightful layers of flavor. My filet with truffle butter was tender, flavorful, and perfectly cooked. The sides were flavorful without overwhelming the steak. The service was perfectly paced; not hurried but no unnecessary waiting either. We finished with creme brulee that was unbelieveably delicious. It was a wonderful night out in an easy-to-get-to location.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, and ambiance.Great service, and ambiance. The food is so very good. Everything from appetizers to dessert was incredibly delicious. It was a taste sensation!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time DinerWanted to try Hanover St Chop House because of all the good things said about it oh Howie Carr's Radio Show-He was correct-experience was outstanding. Went there with couple of friends just to try a new place for dinner, we all loved the atmosphere and the food- 2 had prime rib, which they said was outstanding. I had the New York Strip Steak-Med Rare-the best steak I have ever eaten. Moderate background noise is not a complaint-I like a little background-it suggests people are really enjoying themselves as we were. We will return.Thanks, Bill C.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe survive is wonderful andThe survive is wonderful and the food is so good it's hard to explain:) even though it is suggested that you make reservations for a table they will find you one even if you don't :) exspecally If its your first time dinning with them :) it's alittle pricy but the foods worth every penny :)3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood here is unbelievableFood here is unbelievable and the staff is so professional. Richard took great care of us. He was attentive without hovering. Great night all around.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellence In Fine DiningOnce again Hanover Chophouse did not disappoint us. It is one of the finest dining experiences in Manchester. The meal was cooked to order just as requested. We have been several times, but left thinking that we should dine in more often because of the superb quality of the cuisine and atmosphere. Neil was an excellent host guiding us through our gastronomic journey at Hanover Chophouse. We would highly recommend to our friends and family trying the Hanover Chophose for themselves. I would highly recommend the hand rubbed,aged 24oz cowboy steak;a beef lovers paradise. Thank you Hanover Chophouse.
Sincerely Terry & Dawn K.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWas our second visit to theWas our second visit to the Chop House, and was better than the first. We had the bacon wrapped scallops and the lobster cocktail for apps, there was 4 scallops and they were cooked perfectly. The lobster cocktail consisted of claw meat only, sliced thin, and was very good. i had the cowboy rib eye, 24 oz. and it was large, on the bone, and cooked perfectly. My girl had the filet with truffle butter, and it too was melt in your mouth delicious. Our server was neil, and he was personable and quick. For dessert we had the creme brulee and it was awesome. Great meal!2/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
