This was our first time at
This was our first time at the Chophouse 88. My husband and I loved the atmosphere and the service. My husband had the filet with the scalloped potatoes. His food was beautifully prepared and served hot. I had the prime rib and mashed potatoes. My prime rib was excellent but my mashed potatoes were mildly warm. They still had a good flavor, though. We were going to try the bread pudding for dessert but they were out of it, so we tried the chocolate paradise!!!! Excellent!!!! We will dine here again and we will definitely recommend it to our friends.

It was fun to be at Chop House again. Although the location was different, somehow they successfully kept the former ambiance. The food was excellent starting from the very, very sour dough bread piping freshly hot from their oven (beats San Francisco sour dough) their signature Baby Blue Salad along with their exclusive creamy house dressing was something to be savored. The prime rib was incomparable with the mouthwatering four cheese scalloped potatoes. It was topped off with a chocolate moose fashioned into a rich dark chocolate Easter Egg. I thought it was pretty good and well worth the price at $24.99 for the five course meal. The service was excellent.

It was a wonderful evening with my husband. The food was outstanding,the service is a bit over the top for the restaurant with the captain/maitre'd scenario ....Would have liked just a regular server and maybe a runner for the food. Love the cool lighted menus! Adds to conversation for sure...The steaks were wonderful, the sides and dessert just as good and we can't wait to go back and sample other selections! If there was anything negative it would be the pour on the wine, it could be better. Seems a bit short. Martinis are large however and tasty!
On a 1-10 I give it an 8.5

Best steak on the Treasure Coast
Quite simply, the best steak house I've ever visited. I haven't visited Bern's in Tampa, but I don't see how their food could possibly be better. Chophouse 88 is the reincarnation of MT's Chophouse... all the way down to the lighted menus and the wood-grilled steaks.

Food was excellent. From the
Food was excellent. From the filet one of us had to the huge shrimp and great salmon. I had the scallops and they were the best ever. Most of our group had the crab bisque and they said they would be very happy with Just a bowl of that and a salad. They raved about it. We will definitely come back and soon! !

First time dining here and
First time dining here and was stunned at the quality of our meal...amazing! Salads were superb, fresh with house-made dressings, entrees (tuna and crab cakes) topped any big-city restaurant's, chocolate paradise is a must for dessert (share one!). Service was spot on from start to finish, gorgeous interior...one of the top meals in memory. Hands down my top pick...try it!

Highly recommend when in Vero
Food was great. Service just as great. Wine list very nice, with ratings and none below 88, hence the 88 in the name. They offer a great deal on Sundays as well, with salad, entree, side and desert for a very reasonable price. This is a great choice if dining in Vero Beach. We will be back!

Fabulous Dining Exceptional Service
Celebrating 17th anniversary with a wonderful dinner at the Chop House 88 in Ft Pierce. Service was wonderful and the food, out of this world. Great night. And don't get me started on the best Martini I have every had. Definitely recommend for any occasion or just to eat and relax.

Mom's Day Mayhem
Pro's: Gourmet texture/tastes, many unique flavors as a 4*+ dining experience should be; Button down 4* service(lighted menus!), fine ambiance; bargain value pre-fixe menu on Sunday. Fine desserts, exc decaf.
Cons: Mother's day pass as they became overwhelmed with patrons BUT, the 'wild' salmon was a farmed cut(the unhealthier type), extra fatty and seared on top, sashimi inside-had to send the core back for more grilling. The Filet mignon(I think) was overcooked to the order.
This was our 2nd time in and the 1st time was the best dining in Vero in 7 years. They get a pass for Mom's Day but NOT for the misrepresented salmon-that needed disclosing."oh, we're out of the wild salmon and now are serving farmed(Atlantic).'

We were delighted from the start...the door was opened for us and we were welcomed. Love the brick walls and lighting. The tables were well appointed. The wait staff were well-trained, able to answer questions and make suggestions. I walked around to see the entire restaurant...what a delightful surprise at every turn. I knew the food would be wonderful and every bit was fabulous !
Every detail was covered...bar glasses, water glasses, bread service, trio of garnishes for the baked potato, etc, etc !!!
SUPERLATIVE FOOD/SERVICE/AMBIANCE !! Thank you !

With our party of four all
With our party of four all enjoying the steaks, they were all cooked to specifications. The soups were enjoyed and the salads were fresh and yummy. Our wine was a perfect choice to accompany our meals. Dessert was a topper. We would recommend this eatery to many people and ask them to be patient as service was slow.

Always a treat.
This is our "special occasion" restaurant, and the food is always superb. The only thing of note was when it came to dessert I got peach cobbler. It was cold (almost frozen) and hard, I couldn't cut through the dough. Disappointing end to an otherwise lovely meal.

Chop House 88 offers excellent,consistently prepared food at very reasonable prices. The early bird and Sunday specials offer @ $24.99 value that can't be matched for taste,portion,and variety. The service is superb and the choices for quality Wines are numerous.

Awesome food, service & atmosphere!
Can't go wrong here. Everything was incredible. A gem in Vero. We had group of 6 and were well taken care of by everyone in the restaurant. Thanks for a wonderful experience. We all agree that we'll be back.

Attentive service. Quality meat cuts. Large selection of Bourbons and other whiskeys. Good options for craft beers. Mediocre wine selection. Fresh ingredients for side dishes.

A Real Find!
We were visiting family in Vero Beach and reserved a table for 8. One of our group uses a wheelchair and we were easily accommodated at a preset table with plenty of room for everyone. There were other diners in the room, but the noise level was very low and we were able to talk with each other comfortably. We had excellent filet mignon, prime rib and short ribs that cost less than a comparable restaurant. Overall, an excellent experience.

Great Steak House in Vero Beach
We loved the great Prime Filet Mignons!
The service is friendly, knowledgable and attentive.
The atmosphere is just what a steak house
should be, dark and romantic.

best steak in town
if you are in Vero Beach and want a good steak...you are out of luck. But if you want a GREAT steak, then Chophouse 88 is the place for you. The friendly staff will make you feel welcome. The choice and prime steaks are awesome. The side dishes will quickly become favorites. Chophouse is a best bet for sure in Vero Beach!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
family was happy with the filet, grouper, lamb and pork chop. dessert is not paricularly strong but service was spot on without being overbearing.only complaint was the 30 minute wait despite reservation but staff made up for it with their attentiveness.
excellent vero beah open table option

Great date night
My wife and I were there recently and had a really nice evening. The steaks were excellent. We will be making Chop House a place that we frequent.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was our first time to Chop House 88 and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We had the mussels for an appetizer and they were delicious. We each ordered the petite filet for our entree and they were cooked to perfection and were so flavorful. I had the asparagus and grilled tomato with blue cheese for my two comfort sides and my boyfriend had scalloped potatoes and sauteed spinach. The sides were all as equally as good as the steak. Can't wait to go back!

Close to Perfect!
The "new" Chophouse is doing a great job. This was our fourth visit and it has been very consistent. The food is excellent and they excel in details: food and plates arrive hot, the butter is soft, and the red wine is slightly chilled (as it should be) to about 60-65 degrees. Prices are moderate considering the quality and glasses of wine are generous. My wife and I each had an appetizer, entree (with their standard two sides), and two glasses of wine and the total was about $115. Service was excellent.
The decor could use a bit of a facelift, but I'm happy to see them focus on quality food and service rather than becoming a fancy overpriced luxury destination.
The Chophouse is doing everything right.

This is the 2nd time we have eater at the Chop House 88 and we were not disappointed. The food is outstanding and service is great.

Will definitely return
I booked a table at the last minute and was happy I did. I enjoyed the atmosphere better than the prior "Chop House" and the prices are more reasonable. The food was tasty and the service was very good. Even when the waiter made a mistake (forgot to bring tea, which he did not charge for), he acknowledged his mistake. Not many people will admit when they've made a mistake. We enjoyed our evening and will be happy to return.

Delicious comfort food
My husband and I dined here for our anniversary and had a wonderful evening. The menu offered delicious starters- we had the applewood smoked bacon and a wedge salad (which was perfect for 2, and they split if for us before bringing it out to us). We each had steak which also was great. But I think my favorite was the "comfort sides" that they offer with the meals. Truffle mac n' cheese, caramelized Brussels sprouts, creamed corn, goat cheese risotto, roasted forest mushrooms...it was so hard to choose! Overall, a great evening. Definitely more pricey, so seems better for special occasions.

Best Steak in Town
If you're in Vero Beach, florida and are hankering for steak, look no further. Chophouse is by far, the best steakhouse in town. And their non-steak food measures up as well with great specials, fresh fish and a great chicken pot pie! Combine this with a romantic interior, an attentive and fantastic staff and you can't beat Chophouse.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best steak I have had in Vero in 5
My wife and I agree this is the best food we have had at any restaurant in Vero, "and we have been to all of them, including the Ocean Grill several times. The meat was Prime and Choice cuts, and the wife's Short Ribs were to die for. Our new hangout for sure. Thursday is Martini Night, and they are huge.

Excellent.Filet cooked to perfecti-
Excellent.Filet cooked to perfection. It was late on Wednesday night and i wasn't sure if i would be able to find a nice dining experience anywhere in town. I originally booked a 9pm reservation nearby and arrived at 9:07pm with door locked, obviously not ready to host any guest. Luckily I was able to get in a 9:30 reservation and enjoy a meal that to my surprise was absolute bliss. I met a few locals and enjoyed my experience. (Fabulous piece of Filet Mignon, asparagus and brussel sprouts with a smoked bacon bites) I will return when i am passing through next. Thank you!

A SPECIAL NIGHT OUT
My husband and I went to Chop House 88 for our anniversary. The hostess, maitre de and waiter provided excellent service. There were many out of the ordinary entrees available. It was a perfect choice for a special occasion. They also have a nice wine list. The large booths provided ample room for everything on the table.
I had the lobster which was excellent and cooked perfectly. My husband had the king crab legs which were just as good as my lobster. Plus, they did all the work of cracking them open for him.
We were also told about their special menu before 6 p.m. It was a great value for a reasonable price.
Chop House 88 is a step above most restaurants in the area.

Went for the first time with relatives for a nice dinner and was so glad we did- beautiful inside - staff welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was over the top good and plenty of it.. Cannot wait to go back!

If price is no object you should have dinner here. Awesome food, great atmosphere, great service, but plan on $100 per head for dinner with wine...

The staff was slow in getting our drink order but things improved significantly after that. The food was good. We will be back.

Second time confirms impression
Our second visit to Chop House 88 confirmed the first impression, that of a local version of some of the great steak houses, like our favorites(Bones in Atlanta, for instance). My strip and her Delmonico were, of course, perfectly prepared but the real lagniappes were the sides. Fabulous grilled brussel sprouts and vidalia onions, not to mention creamy whipped (real) potatoes, yum. Paired with a smooth merlot and a tasty bourbon. Low lighting sets a sophisticated mood. Don't be fooled by a plain exterior as the interior is woodsy and warm and the spaces are divided to provide a quite and intimate setting. Not for the faint-hearted, wallet-wise, but just treat yourself to a reward after a tough week.. Yummy deserts.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Filet was excellent the second
Filet was excellent the second time........first one was overcooked and no time was wasted in taking it to the chef and cooking another. Which, by the way, being hot off the grill, was fabulous.
