Diner Reviews
  • "Good food, though somewhat overpriced. We got our food fairly quickly, but the couple next to us had to wait 45 minutes. I have a big complaint about our dessert. Bananas Foster is supposed to be prepared tableside and then served immediately so you can eat it while the ice cream is still frozen. Ours came already prepared in a deep dish with most of the ice cream melted. If they're not going to do it right they should rename it "Sweet Banana Soup" or take it off the menu entirely."

  • "Just a notch below the top restaurants in the County, but also priced much more reasonably. My steak was excellent. The portions were very good, and the service was excellent. I particularly appreciated our wait staff finding an open bottle of red, not sold by the glass, and offering it by the glass anyways. I have been to SCH a few times, and consistently very good."

  • "I have not been here for 10 years although I have lived in the area for 38 years. I always remembered it as having great food so we made reservations for 6 and took one of our friends out for his 59th b-day. We had at least two, maybe 3, waiters asking us the same questions and giving different answers. We're told at first they had no champagne splits, only had half bottles so we ordered that. A few minutes later we were told you don't do half bottles anymore either and my wife could only order by the flute. The food was pretty good but expensive. With tip dinner was over $100 a person for the six of us. While the food is still good, I was disappointed with the service who seemed not to be interested in us."

  • "Neighborhood gem with atmosphere, somewhat romantic (big red leather booths, dim lights), never disappoints. Fun night out with friends. Offers special menus if you want something special on a budget (same as regular menu but smaller portion). Regular menu more extensive."

  • "Savannah Chop house offers a $10.00 menu online and with a huge banner sign on the building but when they seat you they do not offer it to you. They hand you the regular menu and the drink menu. Those menus have very expensive entree 's of 20.00+. We asked for the 10.00 menu and it was provided but you automatically feel cheap and are probably labeled cheap. We were actually on a diet and chose this restaurant knowing the 10.00 entree portion would be the right size calorie wise and the price was a plus! Who wants huge plates of food when you are on a diet? So, my biggest complaint is that they didn't offer it as part of the regular handing out of the menus. It should definitely be included and not have to be asked for."

  • "Overall, the dining experience was good. The service as outstanding. Four of us went there on a Monday night and had the Prime Rib Special. It came with either soup or salad, prime rib, and a desert. Fortunately a sizable steak knife was provided with the meal. The prime rib was difficult to cut and chewy. The flavor was okay. One of the group ordered the Southern Fried Chicken and thought it was "pretty good." We did enjoy the quietness of the restaurant and were able to carry on a conversation without raising our voices. Initially, the music was a bit loud, but they turned down the volume upon request. With tax and tip we averaged $40 per person."

  • "Have eaten here many times as it is a "local" for me. My all time favorite is the short ribs. Other great choices are the special prime rib or sometimes the catch-of-the-day. The wait staff has some great ones and others that are average but all OK. Easy to use car park valet system makes the in-and-out quick and easy. Good desert choices but I usually end up passing after a filling meal."

  • "Ruben our waiter had great recommendations . Rib eye steak was cooked to perfection! The shrimp and calamari app was lightly fried and not dried out !! Artichoke very tasty ! We had a very special birthday dinner! I have no complaints and Ruben gets a 5star ! This is what dining should be all about!"

  • "Service was much quicker than usual, is always especially pleasant. Stroganoff yummy; chocolate mousse better than last time, but not as good as it used to be. Still our favorite place in South County."

  • "Food is good but very over priced, including the drinks. Waitress was friendly and accommodating, but disappeared for long periods of time -- took too long to get the check, and for her to pick it up. Atmosphere is good - a little English style."

  • "We were looking for a really good steak and we found it. Our only issue was after having made a reservation we still had to wait 25 minutes to be seated. Obviously a popular place! We really enjoyed the food and our waitress was very good. The filet was perfectly cooked and their signature jalapeño potatoes were tasty! The only other slight disappointment was the heirloom tomato salad- the tomatoes did not really seem to be heirloom but the cheese and reduction were very good. Lastly we loved the bananas foster but recommend don't get ice dream on it as it melts in the hot bananas and dilutes the delicious sugary sauce!"

  • "My girlfriend and I had a wonderful dinner on Mardi Gras. We went for the chicken Andouille jambalaya to which I added shrimp. It was delicious. However, it was the pistachio crusted sea bass that we enjoyed more. The sauce was very flavorful and the fish portion generous. Also the blackened seared Ahi and the crab cake with corn appetizers were great. We arrived early and had the place to ourselves. The restaurant soon filled up but the service did not suffer. We had a friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable server. The servers support staff was fantastic. We never went without water or bread, and finished plates were promptly removed. We also enjoyed the drink specialties. The martini drinks we had for dessert were Carmel Apple and Pear."

  • "Savannah Chop House was a restaurant that you went to for an excellent meal and superior service. Over the last several years, the food quality has become inconsistent and the service spotty. Last Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, our party of 8 went to part-take is the special Fat Tuesday menu. The reservation was for 8 at 7:30. The restaurant was not full, but the bar was jumping. We were seated quickly, but took for forever. The server was not familiar with the specials, the makeup of the dishes. We ordered. By now the there were only 3-4 tables, besides ours, in the restaurant. It took close to 30 minutes to get our food. My dish and my wife's dish were cool. All be it tasty, not worth the wait or the price. The best service was from the car valet!"

  • "I was hoping for a little more Wow-factor from Savannah Chop House. I called the restaurant to make sure they received the note about my husband's birthday and confirmed the reservation time. We had to wait for a table and stood around- bar was crowded. The food was on the pricier side and to make it worse my food came cold. When server returned with my dish the fish was considerably smaller than the very nice cut that had gone back. My husband's steak was fatty and tasteless. The $10 charge for the "seafood" topping to his steak was more like mushy sea-food mix, could not tell what it really was? There was very little recognition of the birthday but a lit candle on their dessert item put in front of him. Server and atmosphere were nice"

  • "My wife and I have eaten here a few times. This time not so good. Starting out, when we were seated, we requested their "Perfect 10" menu which they promote. It's items for $10. The hostess seemed hesitate and took her 5 minutes to bring it to us. The server when he found out we were interested in that menu lost interest in our satisfaction. Our food took a long time to come without any asking how we were doing by our server. We did order drinks which bumped up the tab. I understand servers rely on tips, but service should not be affected by a menu promoted by the restaurant. If you don't want to serve customers with reduced rate food, quit working there. I would recommend Savannah with caution about their service."

Crazy good!!! Keep up the great work Savannahs!!!! You rock it every time we visit our neighborhood gem!!! Thank you for being our "go to" spot!!!!"

  • "Salads, steaks, ribs and side dishes are perfectly cooked and spiced. My guests commented the menu choices were better and flavor equal to or better than Flemming's. I have never had better baby back ribs than the ones I had at Savannah Chop House. Fantastic! The meat fell off the ribs. That and the Burbon Peach BBQ sauce made these easily the tastiest ribs I've ever had. I witnessed a customer at another table question the size of his steak and the waitress didn't argue but removed the steak and went back to the kitchen with it. A couple of minutes later, another steak arrived at his table and he looked at it, cut into it and said to the waitress, "Perfect." Next, the manager arrived at the table to make sure everything was cool."

  • "I booked reservations for Valentines Day fixed price menu, which when viewed online was a (4) course meal with a decent offering of food options but at a somewhat high price, however considering it was for Valentines Day I didn't really expect a bargain but I did expect it to be really good food for the price. Needless to say I was very disappointed. Preparations, presentation, portion size, and quality were all well below expectations for the price of the meal. Overall a very expensive meal for what it was...I would not repeat or refer anyone for this meal at the fixed price."

  • "It was our first time here...we can't wait to come back. We live in Riverside and came with our friends to celebrate our Anniversary. We had reservations in the dining room, but we opted to stay in the bar! The Lounge Menu was fabulous. BEST calamari we had ever had! The filet Lollipops were incredible. We ordered these again. The onion rings, sliders and lamb were exceptional! We stayed in the bar the entire evening and would do so again! We came because we had a gift card from a bad experience we had at French 75...and are so glad we did!! Fantastic!! Ask for Lizzy...she is "fun"tastic!!"

  • "We happen to go on valentine's day this time. Although the food was good, I felt like things were done cheaper than normal. The restaurant propbably saved some money. Not as many waiters, so the service wasn't as good. I didn't like that they only had a Valentine menu and no other choices. In fact, one couple next to us left because of this. The price for the menu was pretty hefty to pay if it wasn't exactly what you wanted, or expected. The place has great ambiance, but unfortunately the choice of music was terrible for Valentines Day. MOTOWN? Smooth jazz, or tony Bennett, nancy Wilson music would have been more romantic. I was a little disappointed this time. Won't be back for Valentines Day, but it's good on other days."

  • "The food was wonderful and our waiter was great, but the hostess was horrible. We arrived at 6:15 for a 6:30 reservation and requested a booth she said it would be only a minute, at 6:45 I ask what about our table and again she said it will only be a minute.I noticed other people were being seated at a booth who arrived after us so I asked again what about our booth. She said were didn't check until 6:50, I was starting to get upset, the wife wanted to leave and I had a bar bill time stamp at 6:25. Again the food and waiters were great but the hostess needs to be replaced."

  • "We went with our 2 children. Service was very slow because I think they were short handed but we didn't mind. Prime Rib and Fried Chicken were very good. Our kids ordered from the kids menu, I believe 1 ordered mini cheeseburgers and the other had BBQ ribs with fruit. Ribs were good and came right off the bone. We got a chocolate souffle type cake for dessert and it was very good. They had a musician in the bar and the music was also in the restaurant. On Sunday they have a magician who walks around and he was very good. Even though the service was very slow we will still go back because we loved the food, magician, and music."

  • "This restaurant offers a traditional steakhouse dining experience in the dining room. Service is great and the dining room is optimally sound proofed for an enjoyable dining experience. Our food was well prepared. The menu keeps true to its "classic" roots but has contemporary flavors and enough variety to please most diners. This was our first experience at their dining room but we have visited their lounge many times before. I must say that the lounge is the best part of this establishment. Unfortunately it is hard to find seats at the bar on busy days."

  • "Food good but came out warm and not hot. I am weird, I like my food hot. Martinis served without any olives, etc. seemed naked. Server was nice enough to bring olives but brought them to us on napkins. Weird. Valet was chaotic. They lost a patrons keys and claimed they never received them but...they parked the car, right? They charged us for valet service and handed us our keys due to chaos on finding the other patrons "missing keys" and we retrieved our own car. Woman's bathroom had issues. The was a stall "out of order" and the restroom smelled like a sewer. Cleaning products where left out in restroom as well. Seems like nothing good her doesn't it? We did have a nice table near the fireplace. There is a nice deck for cocktails & sunset."

  • "For being one of the "nicer" steak houses in the area, this place doesn't give the impression of a fine dining establishment. The service is slow. We had reservations at 7pm on a Monday and it took about an hour to get our food. The food itself was okay, but not consistent. We ordered 2 of the same dish and the steak came out completely different. We came here to celebrate a birthday which wasn't acknowledged by any of the restaurant staff, even though it was mentioned in the reservation."
