  • The Chop House is FABULOUS!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    I took my boyfriend to The Chop House Restaurant, at the Annapolis Towne Center, to celebrate his birthday. Perfect choice! I specified where I preferred we sat on the online reservation (a quiet area of the restaurant). They offer spectacular discounts/specials on the exact day of a patron's birthday (bring state issued ID for proof of birthday) when they dine there. Staff was very friendly and they accommodated my seating preference. Our waiter, TRAVIS, cheerfully greeted us & was an excellent waiter. The Chop House definitely has excellent customer service in addition to wonderful steaks & food. My boyfriend was extremely pleased with everything! Two managers asked about our experience & wished my boyfriend a Happy Birthday-great.

    Went for the birthday special which is great. Place is so overpriced. They don't carry a steak under $40 and that is ala carte. Server was very sweet but felt like she was pushing us to order more drinks, more food, etc. as it was we couldn't eat everything we ordered. Not sure we would return.

    Restaurant is great, very fancy. We went for my husband's birthday dinner because you get half off the food bill if it's your birthday. Let me tell you, it is expensive, so be prepared to spend $50 on just a steak alone. However, the food was amazing! I got the Cowboy Steak, very good.

    The Chop House is on par with The Prime Rib (Baltimore location) and offers a very nice variety of steaks and seafood. The best thing is the $$$ you'll save if you go on your birth date as you get a 50% discount for a party of two, excluding drinks. Very attentive and respectful staff, quiet and distinctive atmosphere and easy to get to location.

    Tablet based menu was gimmicky requiring more time and effort than a traditional menu. The wine list, despite having sort functions, was a mess - alphabetical order, with everything mixed? This concept really needs to be re-thought. All soups and sauces in our party of 9 were overly salty. Meats and seafood were well-prepared. Sides (accompaniments) were average and lacked flavor. Service was not professional or commensurate with the cost. Our waiter was just not ready to handle a table by himself... Overall, the experience was disappointing given the high cost. There are far better options available in Annapolis for about the same price. Go to Lewnes instead for better food, service and atmosphere for about the same price.

    This restaurant has not only great food and a nice wine list, they also have a great policy of providing a huge (35%) discount on the occasion of your birthday. You should have your birthday exactly on the day of your dining. We have been already twice in this place celebrating our birthdays and each time had a great time.

    Excellent food, only a few issues that should be improved with food would be improved espresso and making sure to serve the desserts at the proper temperature. One dessert seemed to have been served directly from freezer and was not the mouse consistency (was much better after letting it sit for a while).

    Perfect setting to celebrate a special occasion. Especially when it's your birthday because you get 50% off your bill! My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday and we both enjoyed everything we ordered. The French Onion soup was a great starter and we both had Chophouse steaks. Those along with the sides were excellent.

    An amazing find, completely by accident we stumbled upon this place after receiving terrible service at another restaurant and walking out. We sat at the bar and mingled with some locals, had great conversation with the bartender and have now added this to our list to return to when back in town. The Chophouse turned our night around, thank you!!!

  • The Essence of Crab Dining!
    Vinnie
    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 took our friend there for a belated Birthday celebration. Our party was treated like royalty. We were escorted to the bar and there we met "Don" who was absolutley amazing! Since this my friends 1st time there he told us what was good and he was right on point. The meal was great and we had the alcove seating which was private. You will not be disappointed by the quality of the food, the way it iwas presented, and the excellent service. The menu is a little on the expensive side but the food is and service is well worth the price.

    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.

    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.

    We had great steaks-- tender and perfectly done. We also liked the Au gratin potatoes. I loved my French Onion soup. The calamari appetizer was also wonderful. The service was excellent. The manager also gave the personal touch and stopped by each table. A very enjoyable experience. And the restaurant gives the birthday party a free dinner, which made it very nice indeed.
