  • The Essence of Crab Dining!

    Dined on 8/27/2014
    We looked forward all week to steamed crabs on the deck, our first time in St. Michaels. Had steamed mussels, tender and not overcooked as many places do, Cherrystone clams (also excellent), then the steamed crabs. A couple of the crabs - especially the claws - were a little dry from having been steamed and then sitting too long - but most were just right. You can't beat the atmosphere, watching the boats go in and out, enjoying the breeze and really feeling part of the Eastern Shore vibe. Lots of locals at the restaurant, which tells you it must be consistently good. Great server, who seemed to have a sixth sense when she was needed and was a lot of fun. Many locally brewed or craft beers - we tried four different ones, all terrific.

    I made this reservation on my husband's birthday. I had heard that they have a birthday special in which 50% is taken off your food bill. We arrived at the restaurant in time to take advantage of the happy hour prices for drinks. Our entire experience was fantastic! The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. My husband ordered the Porterhouse, which was cooked to perfection. I ordered the Mushroom stuffed chicken and it great as well. The sides were large enough that we both could share. Our server, Travis, was very attentive. My husband and I will be dining at the Chop House again.

    We went to the Chop House to celebrate an occasion. The atmosphere is very cold. Nothing warm/ romantic about the place. The wait staff was also not friendly. The food was mediocre and very over priced. The wrong drink was brought to our table. The beef wellington had stringy beef and was not medium rare but rare.

    This was my friend and mines first time at The Chop House. I took him there for his birthday which I was glad that it was his birthday because they give you half off of your food. This restaurant is a little too expensive for me though. The meats alone were high then you have to pay for your sides seperate (a la carte). The food was great and the drinks were nice and strong also my waitress was awesome but like i said it was a little pricey. I should have known this place was expensive from the tablet menus, which was real helpful. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would go back again for someone else birthday so it can be half off again.

    This was not our first dinning experience at the Chop House and it did not disappoint. The food, service and atmosphere are consistently top quality. I would however not recommend ordering the Beef Wellington. It was a bit soggy as though it had been pre-assembled much earlier in the day and/or baked at low temperature. The filet within was delicious and our overall dining experience was very good.

    I simply enjoyed my visit at this restaurant. The customer service was impeccable and the server that paid attention to detail. Her name was Nicole and she really made OUR stay memorable. IT was my Pastor's birthday on Thursday and we celebrated on Saturday. Although it was NOT quite his birthday on that specific day she provided him with a FREE dessert. She made our experience like we were apart of the restaurant's family and that's a compliment to her as the ultimate server. Bravo!!! I love this place and we will be planning OUR next trip there. Subsequently I've given information to many people to attend the restaurant to get the pleasant experience. Thank you.

  • Best Steak Ever

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Our family of 6 took our USNA plebe here for a filling meal and we got it! We each had a different type of steak and everyone said it was the best meat we had ever eaten. The food was incredible and the service was perfect. We also enjoyed the kale salad, sauteed spinach, and grilled peach dessert. The wine recommended was super. The meal was expensive, but the amounts served were generous and we didn't mind the price for such quality food, atmosphere and service. I chose the beef tenderloin special, which was very reasonably priced at $15, and was surprised at how much I received and it was delicious with a mole sauce.

    My husband and I went to the Chop House for my birthday dinner. We were seated in a booth which was very private. We choose the lamb and diver scallops for appetizers. Both were delicious. We both chose the Kobe Rib Eye as our entree's, with mushrooms, a baked potato, and asparagus as our sides. Everything was wonderful, but we both agreed we would return to the Filet Mignon on our next visit. Our server did an okay job, but could have been a little friendlier. Because it was my birthday, my dinner was free! Would definitely recommend the Chop House to family and friends.

    Relaxing decor, good food, and a modest noise level in the dinning room made for a pleasant evening. The soothing level of background music and the use of fabric on the backs of the banquettes that helped absorb noise made it comfortable to carry on a conversation. That's a rarity in many restaurants these days.

I especially love the fact that your meal is 50% off on the day of your birthday if you dine with them.. That is an amazing incentive for customers.

    The service and ambiance were outstanding. If the food had been bad, we would still come back because we were treated with such relaxed but attentive service. But the food and drinks were outstanding. My husband was delighted with his perfectly prepared martini and scallops - again perfectly prepared with a great balance of sauces. I had the lobster bisque, which was fine. For dinner, my husband had the cowboy steak with the mushrooms cooked in wine. He said it was the best steak he's had in his life, even better than some very expensive Kobe beef steaks in Vegas. I highly recommend the baked potato - perfectly done and I'm very picky. We were also very happy with the wine list - our cab selection was great with our steak. Go here!

    Well fist off my reservation was for like 5pm and I requested the Alcove seating in which they accommodated! The seating had us feeling like we were in a scene of The Godfather movie with the privacy! The iPad menu's were very nice and added a nice level of sophistication! The food was surprisingly abundant which was good seeing as though they are very pricey! I went on my actual birthday so I got 50% off our bill and a free dessert! Their onion rings look like humongous donuts and the lobster crab cakes were heavenly!!!! I'm definitely going back especially on birthdays!!!! My server could've been a little more informative especially since it was my 1st visit there, if I didn't do my own research prior to going I would've been lost!

    Wow I was blown away, I can't remember a better evening out with friends. The food was amazing, we had steak au'poivre and it was fabulous. We also had Diver scallops and Shrimp cocktail as appetizers, they were also very good. I can't say anything bad about this experience. The service was amazing everything we tried tasted great. Oh and we ended the evening with a dessert, I think it was called the peanut butter bomb, it was delicious and gone in about 30 seconds. The prices are a little high, but in this case I felt it was well worth the money. Cheers!

    We had a reservation at 7:30 and arrived on time. They had maybe 4 other tables sat, it was dead. The hostess asked us to wait a minute while she figured out which of the 50 open tables to seat us at. Then she sat us a lovely booth, but it was set for 5 people. They knew we were coming. The server had to remove the extra 10 wine glasses, 10 forks, plates, etc. I told the hostess it was anniversary but she obviously didn't pass on the info to anyone. The server asked if we were celebrating anything towards the end of the meal. They give you an ipad menu but never explain anything on it. No discussion of the food or recommendations. Service was slow and unattentive.
