    I loved the Oysters on the half shell and our steaks were perfectly aged and cooked. Definitely a special occasion place as it is a bit pricey. The art work displayed on the walls is very interesting. We had a lovely evening and enjoyed our 1 year anniversary dinner at the Chop House.

    A fantastic place for a special occasion. I wanted to treat two friends to a great dining experience, and this classy spot fit the bill. The steaks were PERFECT; my filet mignon was as good as the ones I've ordered at restaurants in Manhattan and Chicago. Thankfully, a very good Carmenere was on the wine list to make a great meal even more enjoyable. The server was attentive, friendly--and had the foresight to reserve a table for us at the cigar room. The only downside; the cigars had gone a tad dry, but excellent selection of cognac was great compensation. If you want a fabulous dining experience, this place should be on your list.

    Do not order the Ribeye. My favorite cut usually because of the marbled look and delicious taste. The Ribeye I was served at the Chop House on Thursday night was awful. Huge chunks of fat and muscle. It was awful and should not be serves, especially In a steak house. We were seated in the front of the dining room next to a very large group and it was very difficult to hear at our table. Food Server was very good and knowledgable, friendly.

    We've been there numerous times and it has always been exceptional but this time was a big disappointment. The service was very slow. In past visits we were always seated at a booth. This time we were seated at a table which was so close to the table next to it that it felt like we were sharing our meal with the group sitting next to us. For the amount the dinner costs, I shouldn't be sitting on a stranger's lap. The food was excellent as always but it was ruined by the service and seating.

    I had been to the Chop House several times while in Ann Arbor for business and LOVED it. Finally had a chance to bring my wife for a birthday treat, and it fell flat. Her Filet was tough and somehow dry even though it was pink on the inside. My N.Y. Strip was not as good as I have had on previous visits. The waiter poured water into my wife's Gin and Tonic instead of her water glass. We laughed it off, but it was not a good experience. I will give it another try because of my outstanding previous visits, but this was disappointing.

    While visiting Ann Arbor, we were looking for dessert (after a unexceptional dinner elsewhere) and decided to check out this restaurant. Our waitress was very personable and the dessert fabulous. We were so pleased that we decided to go back the next night for dinner. The food and service was above par. It was an expensive dinner as everything is ala carte but so delish! We had the house salad, steak au poive and decided to split the au gratin potatoes. This was smart as the potatoes are more than enough for two and the serving size of steak was generous. Skipped dessert as we were stuffed. The food, service and atmosphere made the price well worth it!

    My boyfriend took me here for a romantic birthday dinner (on a Wednesday night). The Chop house hit it out of the park. We were immensely impressed by everything that was served. We already have plans to go back when it isn't a 50% off deal. It's just that good. I wish I had gotten a birthday dessert. Maybe next year.

    My husband and I recently dined at the Chop House for his birthday. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough for food and service. It is a little on the noisy side, but that goes with the territory for a popular, busy place. The staff mixed up with the birthday cake we had brought in and accidentally gave a few slices to another party and later realized their error. The manager apologized profusely and insisted on not billing us for the entire meal! We didn't think their mistake was all that serious but were very appreciative nonetheless. The food was delicious. I tend toward eating "healthy" foods and they were able to cater - e.g. with a salad of quinoa and kale. Overall, top-notch and we'll be returning for sure.

    We enjoy the Chop House atmosphere, but this time around the food and the service were not up to snuff. A hint to our waiter that my steak was not as good as expected should have resulted in a change or compensation. My Cowboy syeak was tough and tastless for $48. But we will return because the decor and buzz is what we like for people watching.

  • server the worst we've had here
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 10/28/2014
    we were out for my husband's birthday; once the waitress realized we were there for a birthday, she basically rushed us through our meal. we didn't want any alcoholic beverage (since i'm pregnant) and she seemed annoyed when we said we just wanted water. she gave us a bread basket that had stale, scrappy looking bread, she dropped things on the table without any sense of delicacy; nearly tipped my water glass over at one point. it was definitely one of the worst times we have had there. i think she thought we didn't have money or something, or that we only go there for birthdays (for a free meal) and didn't care too much about the way she provided service. she was nice, but just had little desire to make the experience as good as it usually is. the food was good as always, but the experience made everything worse.

    Mediocre, overpriced steaks. Great service. We ordered the Wagyu steak for $79. It was not a good steak. I can't begin to tell you how disappointing this steak was. I usually love Wagyu, but this was so bad, I ate less than half and felt very ripped off.

    My husband and I went here on my birthday. Husband has Grilled Romaine salad (12.00), Baked Potato (8.00), and Crab cakes (33.00). I had the 8 oz filet (42.00) and broccoli (10.00). We each had a drink, wine (15.00 - not quite a double pour) and Woodford Reserve (10.50). We shared the to-die-for Candy bar Pie (8.00). Everything was delicious and service from Lisa W was outstanding. Meal before birthday discount was $140 before tax/tip. Birthday discount took $56+ off. I would definitely go back but our budget limits this to birthday dinners only.

    Had dinner after the PSU vs Michigan game, and we were very pleased with the service and meal. Our server was very attentive and you could tell that the chefs really cared about the presentation of each plate. Appetizers: wedge salad w/sherry vinaigrette (this salad is huge) and crab/lobster crab cakes were both very good. I had the filet au poivre and my husband had the ny strip and both steaks were very tender, juicy, and cooked to the perfect temps. The sauce for the filet was delicious as well. We love sides with the meal, and found the garlic smashed potatoes and the creamed corn to be very good. Desserts here are truly gourmet, and were very good. Definitely recommend trying more than one. Will come back the next time we visit.

    I've been frequenting the Chop House for past year or so since I moved to Ann Arbor. Excellent with small groups for business and special occasions with my spouse. Everyone I have brought here has been impressed with the quality of the food. Also, the service has improved substantially and with a bit of drama/flare as well ... I know this has impressed my business guests leaving a lasting impression with them of a memorable dining occasion.

    We were celebrating our twin kids' 15th birthday and were pleasantly surprised when the server said we were entitled to a 50% discount on the entire bill. After the meal (and after serving dessert in a try with a candle), server asked us for proof of birthday. We had none on us - do you carry your kids' BCs?! The manager then intervened and said he would not honor discount unless we showed proof. When my kids offered to show their Facebook page and I offered that he could keep my drivers license until I emailed proof, he declined both offers. Ultimately I had to leave, go to my car and bring back my kids' drivers permit. NOT GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE! Not going back. If manager cannot trust a patron spending $200 on dinner....
