    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....

    Our waiter made our special occasion even more special. His knowledge of the wine list was superb. After our delicious meal (the steak was done PERFECTLY medium), we had a cigar downstairs; relaxing and enjoying the ambiance. My husband said it was one the best birthday celebrations he's had. Thank you Chop House.

    This was another great time at Chop house. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Fish was tender and moist. Service excellent. My only complaint was the wine we ordered was not available, and the next closest item was 33% more expensive (54 vs 72). Should have been some accommodation.

    The only downside to the evening was taht we were seated right near the door to the kitchen so there was generally a large crowd of servers near the doors with plates coming in and out. Anytime the door opened I was looking straight into the kitchen where the servers were getting their plates.

    Our best friends traveled from Chicago to celebrate his birthday here in Ann Arbor. We brought them to the Chop House and had a wonderful experience. We started with drinks at the bar, and since it was Happy Hour, they were only $5!!! We had a lovely table with Sheldon as our server. He did an exceptional job and we were all very pleased in all aspects of our dinner.

    Was looking for a special place to dine and the general consensus was that The Chop House was the place to go in Ann Arbor. The menu was pricey (as expected) and we decided to order the flier mignon and the lamb chop. For starters we ordered a house salad and a wedge salad, which were both tasty but the portions were significantly larger than what you get in NYC for example. The main dishes were excellent, particularly the fliet mignon, and the lamb while good, was not outstanding. The wine list was extensive and we chose a good pinot noir. Finally we shared a creme brulee for dessert. Overall it was an unexpectedly good meal.

    From the reservation to the check, I was impressed. The level of service is outstanding, food top notch, and atmosphere old world charm. We have eaten here numerous times, and they have managed to maintain their standards at a very high level. Crab cakes were a big hit at our table, followed by the ceasar salads. Entrees consisted of venison, lamb, and an assortment of beef cuts, all were received with great reviews. Make sure you leave room for desert, our spoons and forks were flying around the table with delight. Once again well done.

    You really can't beat The Chop House on your birthday, the 50% discount for two is awesome. While most of the other Main St restaurants will honor a similar discount, if you are in the mood for steaks there really isn't a better place to be. I was initially worried about the seating, but we ended up getting seated in a booth -which was perfect. It's not nearly as crowded as I was lead to believe. The portions are surprisingly huge, too! Overall A+ work, they made my boyfriends day even more special and that's all I really cared about.

    We had dinner on both Friday 8-29 and Sunday 8-31. As always the service was great, but the meal on Friday was overly salty. We will take that as an exception as we have been to The Chop House many, many, many times and they have always been one of our favorite restaurants providing a first rate meal.

    You should definitely go for your birthday because you get the birthday special which is 1/2 your bill (1-2 people). Me and the beau had his birthday dinner here. We first ordered the sea scallops which were probably the best thing about the meal. I got the filet which was a little dry. And the bf got the porterhouse which was a little bit rarer than we asked. We got 2 sides and they were the asparagus an garlic mash potatos which paired great with the meat. We ended the night with the chocolate decadence which was delicious but the gelato that came with it was a bit melted before it came to the table (disappointing). But all in all good meal and good service. I would wait for a bday. Don't think I would pay full price for the meal.

    We celebrated our 49th anniversary at the Chop House and were happy that we had chosen this restaurant for the occasion. The steak was the best that I have eaten in years and done perfectly. My wife's pork chop (2) were just as good. Portions were large on the sides, one order is plenty for two adults or age. Service was outstanding. Not the cheapest place to go in Ann Arbor but well worth overall.

    The food is wonderful, which is why we came back. On previous visits, though, we had been seated by the window, which is why this issue went unnoticed. Through the body of the restaurant they have tables for two against the wall separated by roughly 20 inches from tables for four. When we sat down, then, it felt like we had an audience. It was somewhat amusing listening to the first-date conversation of the foursome next to us but for us on a romantic date, we was very disappointed. Especially given the price point of this restaurant, are you telling me they could not at least stagger those tables?? My wife doesn't want to go back, now. I would be sorry to lose this crown jewel of a restaurant from our dining circuit.
