    Hanover Chophouse is an excellent restaurant for steak lovers, our steaks were cooked to perfection. Our server Richard complemented the meal with his attentiveness and professionalism. If and when you visit, ask for him and he will make your night one to remember. We were visiting New Hampshire and this restaurant could make me an implant. Thanks for a dinner done right!

    We have been dining at the Chophouse for years and I am always impressed by the longevity of their staff. Obviously they think it is a great lace to work and that shows in the care taken with each diner. The food is of course, outstanding and we have never had a bad meal there. The restaurant has been under new ownership for a couple of years, but has not missed a beat. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Food was delicious, service was excellent! The only thing was the French Onion soup had leeks and mushrooms that were not specified on the menu. I cannot eat mushrooms and was disappointed with lack of information and changing up a classic recipe. But that would not keep me from going back. Loved it!

    Steaks cooked to perfection. Also able to substitute veggie and potato of the day for preferred side with a slight additional upcharge. Baked potato portion ample enough to share. Creamed spinach portion not too large but ample to share as well. Rather surprised at the $19/glass charge for a rye whiskey made in NH. Won't be ordering that again any time soon.

    It was my boyfriends birthday and I wanted to take him somewhere very high class and romantic. I went into opentable.com to place the reservation and put in a side not it was his birthday. The entire experience was amazing the hostess greeted us with hellos and smiles and a happy birthday to my boyfriend. We were brought to our table were a card sat reading Happy Birthday. The service was one of the best I've ever had and the ambiance was exactly what I wanted for this birthday dinner. The food was out of this world and had my boyfriend beyond stunned I pulled this all off. We had the very tasty vanilla bean créme brûlée and it was delivered with a candle and Happy Birthday written in chocolate. Need less to say we will be back!!! Thank you

    I absolutely love dining at the Chophouse. If I lived closer I'd be here at least once a week. The classic menu items are wonderful. The seasonal creations are taste bud inspiring. The bar selections are outstanding. Weather you have an occasion to celebrate or just want to enjoy a scrumptious dinning experience. This is the place to be.

    David was exceptional. A great combination of professionalism and knowledge. He spoke to the wine list well, and suggested some great pairings based on the nights specials. I will always highly recommend the Chophouse to anyone looking to take their significant other out for a great night. Also the gentleman on the piano did a wonderful job that evening.

    We've been to Hanover Street Chophouse a few times over the years and the food is always excellent. What truly stood out this time was the service. When my husband was undecided about wine, the waiter noticed and brought over a bottle of a wine which had been opened for tasting and gave him a sample. When my husband passed on the potato, the waiter offered additional vegetables. My husband asked if they might have any fruit to have on the side. He was brought a beautiful bowl of berries.

    Over the years I have worked for the hotel industry in Sales and my husband Concierge in NYC. We have always had the opportunity of dining at excellent restaurants, Mortons, Ruth's Chris, Ben and Bensons etc. I must say I did not expect such an overall outstanding experience in Manchester NH. We decided to dine at Chophouse for our anniversary. What a great choice! Chophouse will be our new place of creating memories with one another.

    We came here for our 29th anniversary. reservations were recommended so I made reservations. We recently move back to the area so I was looking for a special place. It's not the best location, but it's easy to find, well lit, and parking was ample. The menu is balanced with selections for any taste, but we were there for steak. The wine menu is extensive. We ordered the prime rib which was cooked to perfection, flavor was excellent and it practically melted in your mouth. The sides are large and meant to be shared (we ordered the mashed potatoes). I ordered a side of the lobster Mac and cheese which was creamy and excellent. Service was fantastic. This our new favorite place and We'll be coming back here for sure.

    I took my dad for dinner here for his birthday and it was really great! He had the surf and turf, filet and lobster and really loved it. I had the Salmon and it was perfect! They wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate on his dessert plate and gave him a candle in his brownie. It was a nice touch without being too corny. We had a great time and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice special occasion spot. The table over from us was celebrating their 1 year wedding anniversary and all the tables have a little card that says "Happy Anniversary" or "Happy Birthday" so the manager and waiters all get in the celebration as they walk by. I live in NYC now and came up for this occasion, the food here definitely held up to my city standards!

    I decided to take my boyfriend to the Hanover Street Chophouse for a nice birthday dinner. From the moment we walked in the door we felt like royalty. We had Agatha as our server and she was wonderful! Also, not only did the manager come to our table to ensure our meals were to our liking, but the chef visited as well! We had a few glasses of wine from their extensive wine list, three delicious appetizers to share and amazing entrees. When the dessert came out it not only had a candle but also, written in chocolate on his dessert plate read "Happy Birthday" with his name as well! He was thrilled. We will most certainly be back. Hopefully sooner rather than later! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience Hanover Street Chop House!

    We went to dinner at the Chophouse for our 32nd anniversary. I had the rack of lamb and my husband had a filet and both were superb. We also tried the avocado fries out of curiosity - they were as good as they sound! Our dinner was delicious and our waitress was top notch. We enjoyed ourselves very much! At the end, the waitress brought out a scrumptious chocolate cake with Happy Anniversary written on the plate in chocolate icing - a perfect way to end the meal!

    My husband and I have been here before and consider this a place to go for special occasions. I was looking forward to a great steak dinner. I ordered the filet with mushrooms. My husband ordered the Cowboy. His was pretty fatty but still enjoyed it. My filet, although cooked as requested, was much dryer than expected. It tasted ok, but was a huge disappointment for a $40+ steak. The noise level was louder than I expected. I guess some people just don't know how to speak softly. Our waitress was great, very personable without being in your face every minute.

The restaurant had a note on the table that said happy anniversary and also verbally told them when they checked in! I thought that was nice they went the extra mile to put a note on their table! My parents loved the food as I expected and we will definitely be returning soon! HIGHLY recommended!

    We just celebrated our 38th anniversary at the chophouse on Thurs. It's our favorite place to go for special occasions. Everything was delicious as usual except that my wife's steak came to the table MR versus the MW that she ordered. Obviously this is a quick fix but she declined their offer to cook it more. Despite the fact that We insisted that everything had been delicious and that we were fine...they made frequent offers of free dessert, etc that we declined. When the bill arrived I happened to notice that they had removed the charge for our cocktails. I was blown away by their insistence on "making things right". Their aren't many establishments around that show this much concern for providing an outstanding dinning experience!

Food was very good. My steak was a tab dry for a NY strip but everything was wonderful. Reserve wines was also a tab overprice ie. a $52 bottle of wine was $120.

    The Chophouse is a high-end restaurant though not in our budget very often, we will like to treat ourselves a couple times of year here. The food is superb and the staff outstanding. We are always treated wonderfully and never rushed like some places. Good food and drink deserve to be savored and not rushed and that is what the staff allows you to do - savor your meal.

Entrees for our party of six people included sea scallops, surf and turf, filet mignon and Kansas City strip steak.
