    We were there to celebrate two anniversaries. The other couple, who had never been there, liked it so much that they face-booked pictures of the delicious dishes. The presentation of the meals was beautifully done. The wine, food, and service was perfect. The Lamb was so good that it made you desire more! There was not one thing to complain about. It was an awesome start to our evening which ended at a show at the Palace Theatre across the street. Even the valet attendants were pleasant and with happy smiles on their faces. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    We celebrated our Anniversary with a wonderful meal and atmosphere. Our waitress was very accommodating from splitting our salad, giving us time between courses, making sure we were enjoying our evening and mentioning that we were celebrating our Anniversary. She was gracious, attentive and knowledgeable.

    We were celebrating my husband's birthday. We started with oysters, which were great. I had rack of lamb and my husband had filet. Everything was prepared perfectly. When I told them of food allergies they substituted the vegetables without question. Our waiter was very pleasant and professional. We will definitely go back!

    For the price, if expect a higher quality steak. $52 for a dry aged ribeye with little marbling and too much grissle. Lobster Mac & Chz was very good. Service was great, except when our leftovers were packaged all we got was our steak. No potato or veg was packed up!

    My wife and I spent our 29th Anniversary here, so it had to be special. It was the best meal we have ever had anywhere at anytime, quite simply. I had the surf n turf lobster tails/filet mignon, she had the rack of lamb, and we split the sea scallops wrapped in bacon for a starter. We were full after, but had to split the carrot cake after (the half-size was plenty). The bottle of Murphy-Goode red wine was incredible and paired perfectly with our food. Brendon our server was personable, professional, prompt yet gave us our space at the same time. We never felt rushed are waited for anything. This is a relatively new restaurant, but is what the best restaurants in this area use to be. We will be back and are telling everyone.

    My husband and I went to the Chop House to celebrate our anniversary. There was a large party seated close by making the atmosphere somewhat noisy. It was chilly outside, and in the restaurant too, as if the air conditioning was on. I ordered the filet, medium and was asked by the server if I wanted a sauce to accompany it. I decided a good steak doesn't need to be masked by a sauce, but when I cut into the filet it was tough and dry...I guess that might be where the sauce would come in handy. But then it wouldn't taste like a filet, it would just taste like a piece of beef We have frequented the Chop House in the past, and had pleasant experiences; not so much the last two times.

    Overall it was nice but b/c I took my bf there for his bday, I was disappointed w/his meal. I ordered the surf and turf. My turf was superb but the surf (lobster tail) was the size of 2 jumbo shrimp. Very disappointing for a $55 price tag. My bf's meal was very small portion wise (special cod dish) and his potatoes were cold. The asparagus that came with my meal were limp and tasteless. They should have been grilled. For a total price of $140 w/tip, I expected much more.

    I recently tried the Chophouse during the Restaurant week. It was truly a great value. The wine was awesome. I love the decor and our waiter was a true gentleman. The Salmon tasted great and potatoes were to die for. I will definitely be back again.

    My wife and I went here for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The woman who was working the front desk was not friendly at all, as she did not welcome us nor did she even try to make any casual conversation. Food was excellent (we both had the meatloaf; incredible!) but it was very cold sitting there. So cold that we both kept our jackets on the entire meal. It boggles my mind that a fine restaurant can't spend the $$ to turn the heat up to a comfortable level. Mind you, we are skiers, so it's not like we are wimps when it comes to cold temperatures. It's just not something we expect when dining out. I'm not sure that we would return. Our waiter was very pleasant, although the service was slow.

    We went during NH restaurant week. It was outstanding! The service was fantastic (thank you Catherine), the food was outstanding! Everything was cooked to perfection! My prime rib was cooked exactly as I like it (and it was a big piece of Prime Rib). My spouses Hanger Steak was also cooked exactly the way he likes it. Both were very flavorful. The mashed potates where fantastic and his creamed spinach was a perfect compliment to his meal. I can't recommend this place enough!

    Lots of rich dark leather and cozy corners, but definitely not the place for a quiet conversation. The noise level was exuberant. Our server, David, took excellent care of us, making good recommendations, always there when we needed him, but not hovering. Mom had salmon, I had prime rib. Both were excellent. As were the creme brulee and chocolate torte with which we completed our meal. Great place for a splurge.

    Had 6:30 reservations. didn't get seated until close to 7:00. It was Restaurant Week and it was crowded. Guessing that they squeezed someone in hoping our party of 6 would be late. Other than that, all was excellent........great food and the wonderful wait lady made it a pleasant experience.

    Decided to go here for restaurant week and it was amazing. A three course meal for $35. The prime rib was amazing....generous portion and cooked to perfection. The strawberry shortcake(the chef's grandmother's recipe) was a fabuloud dessert. Plan to go here far more often as the food is just too good to pass up

    Chophouse is not your average restaurant. It's a place for a special occasion, business meeting or friendly get together. It' s polished and reserved for adults. The interior is what one would expect for an upscale steak house. Dark panel walls with exposed brick. Booths and tables fill the space. Open kitchen. Lighting is incandescent. Service is professional and friendly. Food quality is excellent with nice presentation. It was an overall pleasant dining experience.
