  • Fantastic restaurant, fabulous

    Fantastic restaurant, fabulous food, great ambience, love the white table cloths, candles. Service is friendly and professional, easy to have a conversation without fighting music or bar noise. Tables next to windows are chilly (ladies, bring a wrap or keep your coat with you) . Avoid the first booth on the left - very tight and hazardous - bus boys use the pony wall that wraps around the booth as their bus station. We were soaked when he hastily put down his water jug on top of it. Won't deter us from eating there again-just avoid that booth!

    Everyone's steaks were great but the sides (creamed spinach, mac & cheese, and asparagus) were average to disappointing and lacked flavor. A great vibe in the place and a great spot in Telluride, but stick to the steaks!

    Yes, it's a busy time of the year in town. But, we got there at 5:30 to avoid the crowd. Service was slow and our expensive steaks arrived at our table luke warm. Our sides were not hot either. Sent the food back to get heated up. Ended up waiting 15 minutes. I don't know if the kitchen was short handed or no one was coordinating the food delivery. We have eaten here several times and it is usually very good.

    New Sheridan Chop House was such an experience. The food is great, the drinks are strong and the wine list extensive. It is pretty pricey as well. My husband and I treated ourselves to dinner here on a recent vacation with our kids (the kids got a sitter) and it was a nice break. Our meals were excellent. We hope to visit again!

    We had never been to Telluride. A lot of times in resort towns the restaurants are overpriced and the food not as good as it should be. Sheridan Chop House hit it out of the Park. We can't stop talking about hoe amazing it was. Everything we ordered from the appetizers, to the main course, to the side dishes were outrageous. Everything was delicious. Creative and beyond. We loved it so much we want to go back.

    What a great meal at the Chop House! The steaks were really flavorful and perfectly cooked - rare inside, seared outside. The appetizers and desserts were both really special, and we received great service and a good wine recommendation from our waiter. Not an inexpensive meal by any means, but one that was memorable.

    Arrived a little early, so stopped by the bar for a Manhattan. The bartender made it perfectly! I wandered over to the restaurant which had my table ready by the window with a great view of the mountains and the bustling street. I chose the charcuterie appetizer and the dry-aged buffalo ribeye and pomme frites. The charcuterie tray was wonderful with a standout of these little pickled onions that were exquisite! My steak arrived perfectly cooked and exceedingly tasty and a huge of pommes frites arrived too. I accompanied the steak with a glass of Chateau Montelena cabernet. I had planned on finishing with a plate of cheeses, but I was so pleasantly full.

    Read all the reviews and knew this was one of the top 5 Telluride restaurants, but we were really impressed by the great food and service. Outstanding ribeye...ladies shared a filet and it arrived plated separately and cooked perfectly. Well-heeled crowd, but we felt over-dressed in khakis and long sleeves! Pricing is a la carte and in line with a fine steakhouse.

    This is an old favorite in Telluride, has recently been renovated but still retains the old ambiance of a mining town establishment. WE tried many different dishes (elk, steak, salad, seafood) - my salmon was amazing. We chose an Alexander Valley red blend and the wine was perfect. Cocktails were inventive and delicious. Dessert disappeared in seconds. The Chop House reminded us of why we love it so much. Good friends, great service, awesome eclectic dishes, luxe surroundings, all in a space that harkens back to another time. Highly recommend!

    Everything you'd want in a chop house. Good steak, Good wine and Good service! I highly recommend getting lots of vegetable sides - they are all excellent. We've had dinner here about 3 or 4 times and every meal has been very good. The only reason I do not give it 5 stars is that I did not think the steak (NY strip) was excellent- just good. But this restaurant is definitely worth going to in any case.

    The Chop House teeters dangerously on the brink of becoming a classic tourist trap. While its historic building and prime location are special enough to keep the tables full,they are not enough to justify the food which is truly mediocre and the prices which are not. We were disappointed in the flavorless overpriced steaks, and hit/miss side dishes. The service was competent but not particularly pleasant, and a bit rushed for white table cloth dining. We are a well traveled family of foodies and not price sensitive, if the food and service are great we are happy at almost any price. If you are looking for a great steakhouse, the Chop House is not it. If you want to soak up the charm of have a drink at the bar and eat elsewhere for dinner.

    Our table was set in a private room just off the main dining room. The waiter had a little trouble understanding our Texas drawl but soon had everything going smoothly. The salads, Frisee and Petite Romaine, were fresh (the quail egg in the Frisee Salad was overdone) and the steaks (10 oz. fillets, rare)cooked to perfection, although the sauces (Horseradish and Bearnaise) one of our guests ordered didn't really add anything, being fairly bland. Braised Brussels sprouts with bacon, cream corn brulee, and mac and cheese with bacon lardons provided just the right amount of comfort food, with each side being enough for two. The salted caramel ice cream dessert was exceptional.
