  • "Wonderful place for a celebratory dinner! Perfect food, service and the best Creme Brûlée ever! Thomas is the best waiter we've ever had there. Great job!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "This place is a lot of hype I think. For what we paid the food wasn't worth it. My steak was rare ordered it medium well. When I did get Mt steak back it had mashed potatoes on the plate that we did not order. The place is so loud you can barely have a conversation. I have been to better."

  • "More pricey than notable. Too many other restaurants in our area that provide a better experience at a more reasonable price."

  • "Every time we dine at the Chop House it is a fine dining experience. This was no different. Even though the restaurant was slowed by vacation season the food was fresh and the service was spot on."

  • "My wife and I went to the Chop House last night for our anniversary. I have been here a few times now and am always impressed with the food and service. They really go above and beyond what is expected. I asked the server a trivial question about a champagne, next thing I know the manager has called their distribution center and found out the answer for me. It also goes without saying that the meal was perfect. 5/5"

  • "Fine Dining at it's best. One of the top three restaurants in Charleston."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Although the food was outstanding, we were especially impressed with the service provided by Teddy (our head waiter) and his team. This went above and beyond expectations - dishes were served in unison (everyone received their "hot" plate at exactly same time), places cleared promptly with no intrusion, suggestions offered, and my teenage children received uniquely flavored drinks made by bar staff (Crystal) - just a few examples. We were impressed and would highly recommend families dine here for a special evening."

  • "Everything was great, especially our waiter. It's a special occasion place for us. Birthday/Father's Day combo. I'll be back for my birthday in Nov probably."

  • "The kids and I took my husband to dinner for his birthday. It was our first time at The Chop House and the first time for the kids to experience finer dining. When the kids were handed IPads to view the menu from I knew the evening would be exciting for them. Our waiter was fantastic. The food was outstanding. The portions were generous and everything was cooked to perfection. We could not have asked for a better dining experience on this occasion. We will definitely be recommending The Chop House to others."

  • "I had lamb chops and my wife had beef wellington, both very tender and flavorful. The house salad is basically a bowl of lettuce (1 slice of tomato & 1 slice of boiled egg). I could let that pass but a lot of the lettuce was so bitter I couldn't finish it. The french onion soup and calamari appetizer were passable but the calamari was a little greasy. The creme brulee was delicious but the sugar went beyond caramelization to burnt. I had several bites that left a bitter burnt taste in my mouth. Our final bill for 2 people was nearly $200.00 with tip and we drank only water. The staff gatherd near out table to chat - annoying. We had to enter through a cloud of cigarette smoke as the valet was chatting with his smoking friends. "

  • "I would recommend this restaurant with one caveat: do not order the venison. It was perfectly tender and prepared- it just did not taste like venison. I suspect this has to do with being from New Zealand- as the lamb i used to buy that was produced there had also had any trace of original flavor bred out of it. Stick with their steak and seafood and you can not go wrong. The wine list had some great bottles at reasonable prices too- which really made the whole experience worth it. Our server was Bryant- and he is very knowledgeable and fun. Manages to be there when you need him but not over your shoulder all the time. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "This was a bit of a let down. The food was really mediocre for the price. Our salad was literally a pile of lettuce with barely any flavor to the dressing. For scratch made sauces, they were not flavorful or interesting in any way. We were really looking forward to trying it but wouldn't go back. "

  • "Excellent food and service with a smile. A little pricey, but they comp your meal on birthdays. Nice quiet, romantic atmosphere. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Again the Chop House provides exceptional dining in Charleston. From the moment you are treated at the door, you know there is well trained, professional staff at ever position. Service is attentive without intrusive. The wine list well thought out and the food as perfect as you could ever want. Between steaks, veal and seafood, exceptional at every spot. The sides, soups, salads - were all equally good. Fantastic job yet again by Tim and his team. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Ambiance and service were outstanding. My bone-in strip steak was grisly and difficult to not only chew but to cut. I have eaten here several times and hope this steak was an anomaly. Previous experiences were awesome."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "We arrived very late and the waitress never made us feel rushed. The food was perfect as always. Charleston is lucky to have The Chop House."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "No complaints about the food or service. I made note with my reservation that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I don't know why I was asked to state that because nothing was said or done to make it special. "

Steaks were cooked to perfection There is no better Oscar, the lump crabmeat is huge and very fresh. Be sure to try the cream corn!!!!! "

  • "The staff was great, from the beginning to end. The lady that seated us was very friendly and helpful. Our waitress was extra special, she explained the menu and each coarse was brought out in a timely manner and our glasses were never empty. The service was the best part of this restaurant. The food was good, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary."

  • "Excellent all around, AAA+, steak cooked perfectly, sides are large and delicious, french omion soup has unique cheesy flavor, couldn't get a finer meal, love the interactive menu"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Don't be fooled by the fact that this restaurant in a mall. It is a top flight American food restaurant comparable to any place you are likely to go in a major city. We are very lucky to have such a fine restaurant in our relatively small town. The service starts with Valet parking, and excellent bar, well dressed and attentive wait staff who are WV friendly and not pretentious. Steak, sea food, pasta, dessert...you can't go wrong. I have dined at the Chop house at least 30 times and have never had a poor experience. Please try it if you get a chance."

  • "The food was fantastic! My companion's filet was cooked superbly. The grilled romaine salad was crisp and tasty. My friend loved the lamb chops and the roasted chicken divine!. The service was impeccable-unobtrusive and timely. We were seated at a secluded table which allowed for quiet conversation. Good time and Good meal were had by all."

  • "We went for my husband birthday the food was great.the steaks was the best part and we had great service. We wouldn't go every weekend cause of the price but I would recommend this place for special occasion and a romantic dinner."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Overall experience was equal to my expectation of an upscale restaurant like the Charleston Chop House. The only exception was the beef wellington. There was gristle in the meat. The bottom one third required some extra sawing to get through what I assume to have been tendon that had not been trimmed from the fillet. This entree had a strong unpleasant aftertaste that was somewhat like that of the woody shell material inside a pecan nut. This was the first time I've tried beef wellington but I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to taste like that. I told my waiter about this but I didn't ask him to take it back. On reflection I wish I would have. The rest of the meal was excellent, as was the service."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Everything about the Chop House is first class. Food, servers, presentation and setting."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "I had been eating hospital food all week because of the snow and I hadn't eaten all day. I really needed a good meal and it was the only place that even showed up on open table. The NY strip was amazing, asparagus and salad was better than expected and the chocolate dessert to die for. Not for the light weight pocketbook, but well worth it in my book. Service was fantastic. I only had 30 minutes before my shift and I was able to eat a relaxing meal and arrive on time. Winner for any occasion."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "I had a truly fantastic meal. Everything from the bread basket to dessert and everything in between was great. The quality of the Prime steaks was top drawer and cooked to perfection. I had a peppercorn filet with the peppercorn sauce and it was as good as all the others I have had at top steakhouses. The grilled asparagus was prepared perfectly but the real show stealer believe it or not is the creamed corn. I could eat that for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert! Service was excellent, the wine list thorough--everything was just as you would want it to be."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I hadn't been here for about a year, but was not surprised by the gray food and service. If you want a special dinner you can't go wrong dining here. Expensive, yes but well worth it. I won't be away that long again. Thank you Chop House!"

  • "I took my wife and 2 daughters to The Chop House for my wife's birthday. The girls each ordered a filet and said they were great. I ordereing a Beff Wellington and it was as good as any I have ever eaten. The service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We will definitely be back for my birthday!"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I was really disappointed. Went for a romantic dinner for our wedding anniversary and we were placed next to a table with young children and a large group there for a birthday party. I ordered the sautéed spinach with garlic, but mine had so much garlic it should have been called sautéed garlic with spinach, and I like garlic! The crab and lobster cakes were just okay. My husband steak was rare when he ordered medium. He did like the French onion soup and garlic mashed potatoes."

  • "Absolutely, hands down, the best restaurant I have ever eaten at in Charleston, WV. The atmosphere was welcoming and elegant. The food was impeccable. The dining staff were very professional and friendly! I will definitely go back again and recommend to all family and friends!"
