Diner Reviews
  • "Enjoy every time we are there and will be back soon!"

  • "In Ft Worth to visit son and grand daughter. Got reservations early to minimize risk of 3 yr old granddaughter from interrupting any nearby tables (she did great for the record). Son got steak which had too much gristle, wife and I ordered special filet medallions with sauces. Steak Ok but only one of the three sauces did we care for. One so spicy couldn't even eat. Kids MAC and cheese was fine, they loved it. I was expecting much better for the price. Waitress was very attentive and atmosphere was great but couldn't make up for the over priced blahh food."

  • "This is our second time at Mercury to celebrate our parents birthdays. We came back because our service and food were amazing the first visit. Not so this time. When we sat down we waited a while for a server and were missing several items from our table like knives, bread plates, etc. Our salad order was mixed up, and there was at least ten minutes between when our first entree was served and the last side was set down on the table. Just very disorganized and disappointing. Our total check was $496.78. And at this price everything should be near perfection."

  • "I took my son and daughter in law there. We were in a little hurry as we had a show to catch at Bass Hall. Our waiter, Marco, asked the question if we were going to the show. He made sure our food was on time and it was cooked perfect. The service was great!"

  • "We first chose mercury chop house because of its location - close for a director who works in the Wells Fargo tower. We continue our luncheons there because of the excellent service. ( Courtney is a public relations dream). Out of town guests remember the attentive staff . Prices are good and ambience is business conducive. We have closed many deals there!"

  • "We had time restraints on our evening because of show tickets. The staff were very conscience of this and made sure we were taken care of in a timely manner. This is our second visit and both times we were so happy with our experience. The wait staff is wonderful and the food is very good."

  • "Eaten lunch here several times in the last 4 years. To start they have great warm rolls before the meal, but unlike most "nicer" places to eat in downtown Chophouse has failed to catch on to the idea that many people who are eating lunch do not want to spend 2 and a half hours eatting. Service always seems to be slow. The food is usually above average. It is better than Chili's but yet not really ever great. Finally there is always a lone fly that will inevitability find its way over to your table. Overall it is not the worst place to eat, but for the money there are much better places to go in downtown. This is usually always my last choice for a business lunch, but thats why they always can accomidate I guess. "

  • "Not for sure what I was expecting. Perhaps my expectations were too high. The 6oz filets were fabulous. The mashed potatos were unimpressive...dry and pasty. The steamed mixed veggies were bland and totally lame. The grilled burgers were grilled burgers. Nothing special. The establishment itself was really nice. The place was not crowded even though it was Mother's Day. That was a pleasant surprise. We were seated right away. Took a few minutes to get served which was troubling. The valet guys were very quick and pleasant, however, bringing the car to us meant making a fast u-turn in the street and hitting the curb. Not too good on the tires! All in all, it was a nice place, but nothing special. Doubt that we will return."

  • "I took my family here for Mother's Day Lunch, even though it is more of a dinner restaurant. We loved it! It had a very cool ambiance with gorgeous samba music playing the background. It gave off a classy, elegant vibe, which my mother adored & made her feel special on her special day. The service was terrific, and the food was very good. I recommend it to anyone, but I would say go for dinner instead of lunch. "

  • "I had to find someplace that could take a group of 8 on short notice and Mercury could. Food was outstanding. Service was just a little too relaxed for the hungrier folks in our group. Price point was a little high, though."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "I came here looking for a killer steak with the classic sides and that is just what I got. And then some! Started with a healthy belt of scotch and soda and Sinatra on the box. I was offered a half portion of a wedge and that was the right thing to do - was just enough salad. Bartender took this single lady diner in hand and made me feel like a queen. He could not have been more accommodating! Even found a smaller than T-Rex size rib-eye for me to enjoy with the 3 different sauce treatments they offer. Not cheap, mind you, but very tasty indeed. The beef comes with a tasty portion of mash so you don't need to order more veg but the string beans were nicely al dente. All in all, a classic joint in old Ft Worth that does not disappoint. "

  • "Fine Chophouse! The New York strip was done well and the creamed spinach was unique. We will definitely revisit "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This was a 1st time experience for me. I talked two additional friends into joining me for a Silver Oak Wine Dinner. The wine was very nice. The food was very disappointing. The lobster in the stuffed lobster dish was difficult to remove. The eggplant salad lacked flavor and had a slimy feel in the mouth. The "beef cooked three ways"...first piece of meat was tender but had a lot of fat. The second was wrapped in dough and had a lot of gristle. The third was very tough. Next was the dessert of a pear and ice cream. We all had to ask for knives to cut the pear. The butter knives didn't work. All of this was in such low lighting we had to use our phones to see our checks."

  • "This is the second time in a month Inave been disappointed. Companions steaks were filets and were good. Ihad a New York strip and 13 of itwas grissle, Veggies were great potatoes were great.Creme brulee was great---steak not so much."

  • "We have never had a bad experience here. The food is great and service is even better. Very accommodating. When we go we are there for at least 2-3 hours. Great place to relax and have great conversation over good wine and great food. They have a great patio when the weather is nice. You will always have a great experience here!"

  • "Mercury Chop House was an excellent find. Although the restaurant is located downtown, it offered seclusion from the busy outside rustle, soft lighting, and the perfect atmosphere for our one year anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and I enjoyed it along with the best Long Island Iced Tea I've ever had. The wait staff was very professional and courteous, however the 40 minute delay between finishing our entrée and being served our desert was a little excessive; though not excessive enough to prevent another trip to Mercury Chop House."

  • "Great salad but my steak and vegetables were obviously set under a heat lamp while I finished my salad. In a restaurant of this caliber I would expect they would wait until you are finished with your salad before they put on a medium rare steak.The steak was medium well at best. The vegetables had broccoli and it had set under the lamp so long it was wilted and brown looking. My husbands was the same. We did not voice out concerns as we were guests at the table. We had the special with 3 sauces. Sauces were great."

  • "I had an 8:30 reservation, came in at 8:15, sat down in the VIP room (which felt more like a coat closet with sex dungeon decor) at 9:30, finally met our waitress at 9:50, and recieved my food at 10:25. So you do the math. I understand they were busy, but this was still unacceptable to me. Food was good, and they had a great wine selection, but do not believe I will ever return considering all the other great resturants in town."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Both had no privacy, restaurant was too loud and food was not hot, my wife's steak was well done instead of medium. I would not recommend this place"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Horrible doesn't even give it justice! I recommend the place goes out of business if you ask me! 0 stars out of 5"

  • "My wife and I went here for Valentines dinner. It was very busy, as you would expect valentines to be! Great wine selections and the Filet was amazing,"

  • "I have come to Mercury Chophouse for the last 3 years for Valentines Day.. But this year the service was really bad. Very disappointed..."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "one of the busiest days for restaurants -- m.c. pulled it off pretty well. service was great. food was timely. steak was outstanding. mashed potato side was so-so. will go again... want to try when they're not so over-loaded."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Overall the food was great, however, the service needs improvement. It was as though the restaurant booked to many people for the night (Valentines Day). The server was knowledgable about the food, but visited our table very rarely, and we had to wait for long periods of time between drinks, menus, the meal, and finally the check. We did however sit in the front "VIP" booth, which was blocked off from the rest of the restaurant by a curtain, and that may have accounted for the server often forgetting us."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Some of the best food I've ever eaten and probably the worst service I've ever had. I waited over 10 minutes for a refill on water and over 15 minutes to get bread. I hated that the tables are so bunched together leaving no room between other couples."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a reservation for our valentine's day meal. We were on time and surprised to see a line in the entranceway. However, we were promptly seated and efficiently served by a caring staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our excellent meal and wine. Many thanks to the staff for taking great care of us."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great atmosphere, excellent service, and food was over the top. Sea Bass with fried Lobster, a first for me, but yummo, would definitely dine there again. Despite the fact that it was Valentines and the place was bursting at the seams, the wait staff kept the meal flowing, a little wait, but not more than expected. A great wine selection and a very good service."

  • "Great food no doubt about it. Tables were a little cramped together."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Service a real disappointment. I'd followed up my Open Table request with two calls to the restaurant, with a specific area request. NTL, table was not ready when we arrived, and area requested not available either. Apparently had either been previously booked and they didn't say when I made my reservation, or they got a better offer. Then service unaccountably, frustratingly slow. No menus, no bread. Accepted the waiter's recommendation for appetizers, then took 35 minutes for them to arrive. A disappointment."

  • "Had birthday dinner with wife and friend on feb 8. We had a great waiter (cant remember name) who offered to make a special drink for wife. (The drink was right on) We ordered three entrees to share and they were presented wonderfully on one plate so we could share. Waiter was very helpful with wine choice and with food choice as well. They evening was topped off with three wonderful desserts that were brought out also on one plate so they could be enjoyed by all. Overall it was a great experience and a great start to wonderful evening."

  • "Excellent filet (we ordered medium rare and it was exactly that). We tried the three sauces and they were all wonderful. We also had the sea bass, which was excellent!!! (We ordered the escargot to start, but wasn't as impressed.) Nice ambience! Great place for a romantic night out!!! We definitely recommend and would return!! ~P & L Wright, Arl., Tx."

  • "I've been to Mercury Chop house quite a number of times. If you're in Ft. Worth for only one night, I'd recommend this as the first place to go. The steaks are great but the pan seared sea bass and scallops are just incredible. And while I'm sure the risotto is great, I'm sure to sub in the jalapeno cheese grits every time. And the staff is always great!"

  • "Mercury Chophouse has always been one of my favorites. Past Saturday they were very crowded, and didn't handle it very well. Sat for several minutes with no service, but once our waiter arrived, he was pleasant and efficient. My filet was overcooked...asked for medium, got medium well. Peppercorn sauce $9.95 extra....ridiculous."

  • "When we want a meal that is more than our every day selection, we head for the Chophouse. This was our first visit on a Sunday and we were surprised to find the restaurant nearly empty. The upside of this was the ability to talk without trying to talk over the usual noise. The downside was on a cold windy night there was no Valet. My husband had to walk two blocks to find parking. The food was excellent (as usual) with the guys able to get their steak fix with the special trio and the girls could get the wonderful sea bass special. All food was served just as we have come to expect and Jafar our waiter was very attentive. Chophouse will continue to be a favorite, since we always get what we expect."

  • "Our reservation was 9:15 PM. We arrived around 9 to catch a drink in the bar prior to dinner Upon arrival, the restaurant was packed. Another patron told me, 'good luck' as I checked in. Finally just before 10PM a hostess came us. We were taken out the front door and next door to Cowtown Diner and was seated in a booth. Much like a diner, no table cloths and simple interior. We were handed the Chophouse menus and said this was being used as overflow. As we waited for service, a party entered the Diner and was immediately seated behind us with Diner menus. At that point we left. Not spending NYE with pancakes while we paid for Steaks. Thank goodness for Del Friscos, they got us a table immediately to eat and ring in the New Year!"

  • "We made reservations for 8:45. We arrived at the restaurant at 8:20 and they were still trying to see their 7:30 reservations. We had to wait over an hour and 30 minutes to receive our table. There was no organization at the hostess stand for who had come first, second or third to receive their table. She would give tables to people who just walked in the door while others had been waiting for over an hour. Reservations do not seem to matter at this restaurant. We have been to this restaurant many times and really enjoyed in the past. It has been a few years since we have been here. I'm not sure if there's new ownership or what but I would not suggest going to this restaurant anymore. We will be taking our business elsewhere."
