    Went here for my sons 20th birthday. Service was excellent, food was good. Amazingly the seafood was much better than the steaks. Excellent bar and wine, with interactive menus. A very pleasant evening.

    We enjoyed a quiet meal with dear friends. At the chop house you can hear table conversation without yelling. The food as always amazing. My husband always enjoys the Beef Wellington and I sea food. This is one of the reasons we love the Chop House. They prepare sea food and Steak equally well ! I Look forward to the next occasion that brings us to the Chop House.

    The Chop House was a wonderful way for us to punctuate 24 years of marriage! They actually read and responded to my request for a secluded table to celebrate our anniversary AND congratulated us upon our arrival for our years of marriage. After several times of restaurants ignoring a request for a table not on the main walkway in, it was wonderful to have them accommodate us. Our waiter Tim was wonderful, fun and witty, there when we needed him and gone when we did not. His suggestions were spot on for food and drink combos.

    My wife and I went to The Chop House in Grand Rapids for her birthday this year and we were not disappointed. When I made reservations, I noted that it was for my wife's birthday and when we arrived, they greeted her saying, "Happy Birthday, Christie". It was a nice touch. All of the wait staff also wished her a happy birthday and when we we seated at our table, there was a birthday card waiting, signed by all of the staff. The menu's were very nice, as they were presented on tablets that showed pictures for every item on the list as well as drink pairings for those specific items. Best of all, at the end of the dinner, we were given 50% off of our food bill for her birthday! Everyone was extremely nice & professional! This place is a must!

    Jennifer did a fantastic job. My girlfriend and I came out to celebrate my birthday and she made the overall experience wonderful for us. She was attentive, timely, polite and very knowledgable. To add to the occasion the food was above expectation and service from additional servers was exemplary. We will definitely be making this a tradition from now on. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

    We started with the lobster bisque - which was to die for. I had the steak au poivre which was terrific; my wife had the scallops which she thought were great. We also had the spinach with garlic which was perfectly prepared. The bread served before the meal was also excellent. Certainly the best restaurant meal we have had in GR, but easily the most expensive!

    Unless you have a liberal expense account, this is great $$$$ place best visited on a very special occasion. All service staff members are incredibly well trained and exemplify the best of midwestern customer service -- quick, respectful, accommodating and very pleasant -- not officious, in-your-face, nor overly impressed with themselves for getting hired by such a good restaurant. Our entrees were exceptional with surprisingly large portions. I had the largest single serving of swordfish ever, and she had a "petite" filet mignon that exceeded any petite measurements. Both were prepared simply but deliciously. We loved the menus on iPads with deep details on all food selections, but tapping and swiping thru the notable wine list was great!

    The food was fair and I was expecting much more based on the feedback from others. The steak was good but was not cooked as ordered and the crab / lobster cakes were very dry with too much bread filler. However, the service was great so that helped to make the evening enjoyable.

    My husband and I were celebrating our first anniversary and we were looking for a nice place to celebrate. We definitely made the right decision! The restaurant is beautiful and the service is top notch. All of our food was spot on and cooked perfectly. We loved the menus on the tablets with pictures. Everyone went out of their way to make our night special, including having our dessert come out with "Happy Anniversary" written in caramel on the plate!! We have been recommending the place to all our friends and family.

    This is a great restaurant for a special occasion. I ordered the cowboy steak medium...came out more like medium rare...had to stop eating by the time I got to the middle because the temperature was too rare for me. We also ordered the parmesan asparagus. The asparagus was cooked perfectly but the parmesan was just a pile of cheese on top. The lump peeled right off...didn't really make sense. Wine was excellent. Waitress listened to what out table liked and found a happy medium for all to enjoy. We also had the mojito. I absolutely love mojitos and order them every where I go. This one was okay. Could have used a little more simple syrup and the mint milled a little more to help infuse that flavor.

    Birthday discount was an exceptional deal. Food was outstanding; waitress was extremely friendly, knew how to describe all the dishes and wines, and overall made excellent recommendations based on our tastes. The food, atmosphere, and service was well worth the money. Unfortunately, the cost limits how often we can frequent it (especially without the birthday deal).

    My wife and I love to enjoy great food and great conversation and the Chop House has always been our go to place. You won't find better beef or scallops than here, and we've tried hundreds. After dinner, we always work our way downstairs for drinks, dessert and cigars in La Dolce Vita (a hidden treasure of Grand Rapids). You won't find a better gem in Grand Rapids. The food, the service and the amenities make it the perfect place to spend an evening. And, you can smoke a cigar while enjoying spirits and dessert downstairs.

    We went for our anniversary. The food was excellent. Everything was done perfectly. They even wrote Happy Anniversary on our dessert plates. I absolutely loved that touch. The only improvement is that the coffee was weak. Definitely could have used a more robust blend or even a individual french press.

    I had the small filet and asked for it done rare. It was cooked to perfection. I had read a review on Yelp that the steaks were tough. However, I suspect that reviewer had insisted that his steak be well done, which is enough to ruin even the finest steak. I had my steak without any accompaniment; a good steak will stand on its own without any garnishments. My filet certainly did. It was outstanding.

We even had to ask for fresh coffee because that was clear and watered down. All the sides were just ok. We would rather take clients back to Judson's steakhouse at the BOB.
