    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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 !

    We tried their fixed price 25.00 Sunday dinner. My husband and I had the scallop dinners. For the first course I had the French onion soup and it was ok, not great ok. After a wait of 20 min or so we asked for some bread. It came and about 15 min. Later came the dinner. We each received a serving of 2 scallops with a spoon of sauce and about 2 tablespoons of Brussel sprouts . We just had to laugh. What a joke. The desert was large and very good. My husband had creame brûlée and I a raspberry cake . We had to ask for drinks several times as no one seemed to want to stop and ask if we needed anything. It took two hours to eat here and not because you were eating much. Raise the price if that's all you can serve for 25 bucks.

    expatnyer
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    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).'

  • Mom's 84th Birthday
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/7/2013
    I planned a surprise birthday party for my Mom well in advance of the date. There were not enough wait staff for us, let alone the rest of the place which translated into very bad service. We were a party of 7 so it was totally manageable in my book. It took 20 minutes to get a glass of water after we sat down. We were brought a coupe of the wrong drinks on the first round. They ran out of the wine we wanted. They actually only had 1 bottle and then wanted to charge me the up price for a substitute. The food was good but for the price, I believe there are other options in the Vero area. We will definitely give them another chance when I am back in the are.

  • I'd like to start this review
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/27/2013
    I'd like to start this review by saying I was a fan of the Chop House in its former location. I even purchased a wine locker there as I entertain both personally and professionally. I stopped going before it closed as guests I was entertaining had a few poor experiences with the quality of the food. Keeping an open mind I dined there Saturday and was disappointed to see that there was a food quality issue. Salads were fine, Desserts were great but the Entree that they are know for (steak) was poor. They are proud of there steaks and charge accordingly but the Strip Steak and the Rib Eye that was ordered medium well came out very well with a burnt exterior with very little flavor. $165.00 with tip was steep for the quality received.

    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.

    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

    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.

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.
