The Chop House - Grand Rapids
AMAZINGThis place was in one word, outstanding. The food was superb, and the service was second to none (thanks to our awesome server Ryker). They also have a really cool cigar bar in the basement for after dinner. Must go!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BirthdaySpent the evening with a dear friend- celebrating a birthday- the food was wonderful! The Chop house offers quite a deal for birthday diners! You should give them a call and visit on your actual birthday! You won't regret it!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch!I went there to celebrate my Wife's birthday and all I have to say is WOW! I never see such attentive service. I had the Cowboy steak and it was made perfect. Very juicy and tender. My favorite part of the meal was the "Three Cheese Mac & Chesse. I dont know what they did to it, but it was the best I have ever had. The waiter Blake was excellent. he was very attentive and very knowledgeable with the menu and wine list. I plan to go there again on my birthday.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpot on as usualTook a couple of business associates to dinner as a thank you. The service and the food were terrific as expected. The restaurant never disappoints. Our server, Liz, was pleasant, knowledgeable and perfect in her timing. We'll be back.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!The service was excellent. Our wait staff was extremely attentive and easily made any adjustments to our menu with ease. A wonderful experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest soup in townThey have the best lobster bisque I've ever had. Don't get me wrong the steaks are delicious, but given USDA prime meat anyone can make that taste good. Their salads, soups and sides are what make this dining experience. The wedge salad is amazing and any of the sides from the potatoes au gratin to the always phenomenal mac n' cheese are just the perfect way to finish off a meal. The service is like something from the past, it seems to have been a lost art. All the food is brought out at once and ever so slightly lifted before being set in front of the diner. It is a very fun experience, with excellent food and is worth checking out.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMmy opinionI took my 6 yr old twin boys with us for my Birthday dinner. Our waiter commended me on their behavior. On the other hand a party of 4 that sat behind us had a woman who screamed her laughs throughout our entire meal! It was so loud at one time it actually hurt my ears!
Our Au-gratin potatoes were over done and crunchy, my steak that I ordered medium to medium rare came well done and tough (and our waiter told me it was one of the best cuts of meat)
I originally ordered the Porterhouse steak, it was my birthday and I felt I should be able to have any steak I wanted. But on a Tuesday evening,this steak was NOT AVAILABLE? Truly a disappointment!
And my asparagus tasted like it had been cooked over a butane flame-strong oil taste.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccableI was surfing the internet looking for a nice restaurant to dine at for my husband and I to celebrate our Anniversary. I read the reviews about the Chop House and decided to go there. WOW, the place was AWSOME. From the moment we entered the restaurant to the time we left, the service was IMPECCABLE. The food was absolutely delicious. I had a surprise gift for my husband and I gave it to the greeter who gave it to our waiter. I requested that the gift be brought to my husband on a tray as a surprise. Not only was my husband surprised, I was also surprised. Due to the Waiter's personal touch, the gift presentation was beautiful. We will definitley be going back there.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food in GRIf you want the best of everything go to the Chop House. This restaurant could compete with any other top restaurant in any major city. The obvious food choice is meat and it's hard to go wrong with that, but if you like fish, I'd recommend the Dover Sole, filled table side.
GR is lucky to have the Chop House.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA special nightI went to the Chop House with a friend for her birthday. The service was excellent. As always the food is wonderful. This is a great place to go on a special night.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantWe have dined at the Chop House several times and it is always a good experience. Great service and food and upscale environment. Highly recommend it for any special occasion. Great Cigar room also on the lower level5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCould have made it special.Let me start by saying the food was excellent. We went to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary all the way from Chicago. It would have been nice if they would have done something special for us, but we got nothing. Being a fine dining restaurant I expected something so I was disappointed to say the least. Our waitor was friendly and like I said the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA good experienceUpon arriving I had my husband in a wheel chair and needed help to get him thru the doors and in the meantime I had cut my fingers getting his wheel chair out of the car. The ladies at the front were extremely helpful and the general manager came over and was wonderful and went out of his way to be of service as well as our waiter.
The only problem with the Chop House is parking. Valet parking should be available for handicapped,
We use to dine at chops all the time but because Ruth Chris has valet parking it makes it easier for us to get in and out with their help with the wheel chair and also parking is very expensive - for the three hours we were there it cost $12.00 for parking so something should be down about that also.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMYou'll never run out of water.It was a great birthday dinner for my girlfriend. 50% off all but drinks. You will never run out of water here.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing and Intimate DiningThe Food was excellant with a delightful presentation.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Beef, great serviceMan can live on beef alone--particularly the Cowboy ribeye--but the lobster bisque and the sides are outstanding and shouldn't be missed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNo cigar!!Everything about dinner was fabulous, but I called the reservation line to make sure we would be able to go downstairs after dinner for a cigar. We were celebrating some good news, and my husband loves to smoke a cigar, but on several occassions, the cigar bar service has been suspended when we arrive. I was told that it "should" be fine (which didn't make me feel warm and fuzzy), but sure enough, when we arrive, there was that disappointing sign on the door stating that cigar smoking was suspended. Had we known ahead of time, we could have chosen another night, or made a later dinner reservation. To be clear, my complaint is not with the staff in Grand Rapids. Harry heard about our disappointment, and his response was perfect.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME AGAIN!great service great food. Best restaurant in West Michigan. Hand down!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Chop House by Main streetThe Chop House by Main street Ventures (Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Charleston W.Va.) the restaurants we have visited are great. The Grand Rapids location was no different, the service was impeccable the wine selection equal to any and better than most and the food was prepared to perfection. My wife had the Dover Sole and I had the NY Strip (Pittsburgh/MR) perfect. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted by the hostess and escorted to our table, which I immediately declined. (A two large two top butted up against a wall) The manager Harry, asked what we would like and I told him a nice four top in the middle of the restaurant. He stated we would have to wait a half hour or so as they were busy. All went well! Fantastic restaurant..4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA must for any occasionI have eaten here several times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. Tho it's pricey, the staff is top notch and the menue is amazing. If your in the area on business and looking for a wonderful place to eat, you won't be disappointed. If you are looking for a wonderful place to take that special someone this is a must.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the food and service,We loved the food and service, possibly the steaks were priced a little high for portion, but the appetizers and accompaniments were a fair price. The steaks were cooked to perfection though and melted in your mouth. Free birthday meal for one of our guests helped with price, overall an 8 out of 10 for sure.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery attentive service andVery attentive service and well-prepared food. Even had a speacial treat for our 20th Anniversary. Everything was great except for smoke coming up the stairwell from the cigar bar to the dining room.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness dinnerMy business partner and I took an associate and her husband to dinner as a thank you for a job well done. The two hadn't been there before, but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Once again, The Chop House did not disappoint. Everyone had a fillet mignon except me, who devoured the Cowboy - always amazing (do not overload on the sides - The Cowboy's the thing, don't spoil it with anything else). Although, the side order of mushrooms was excellent and not filling. A wonderful Chateau Montelena Cab was superb and an excellent complement to the meal. Service was very good, as always.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Chop House came highlyThe Chop House came highly recommended to my wife and I, and we found an open Saturday evening to try it out. It was our first visit, and we were not disappointed. The service was very friendly, prompt, and ready to answer any questions we had. The menu was explained to us in great detail after we revealed this was our first visit. I would say The Chop House is a great place to take some friends that are visiting from out of town, to impress. Great dining experience. We will be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGlen Van De VenterIf I could give the service 10 stars I would. We have had dinner here many times and we did not think the service could get any better. Our server tonight was incredible! This is the best restaurant in West Michigan.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, a fantastic evening,As always, a fantastic evening, yet again, at one of the best restaurants (and not just in Grand Rapids!)4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great meal. Lost aHad a great meal. Lost a bet to my boss and took him to the best place in town for steak. We weren't disappointed. Was nice to head downstairs for a cigar and glass of Port at the end of our meal.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to go to for aGreat place to go to for a special occasion. Had reservations for a Wednesday night, didn't really need them as the restaurant was never more than half full. We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated right away. Menus are on pads, really cool that you can see pictures of what you are ordering. I had the grilled hearts of romaine salad and it was absolutely delicious. For my main course I had a steak and it was cooked perfectly and was incredibly tender. Best steak I've ever had, hands down. My date and I headed downstairs to the cigar lounge for dessert, a few [more] drinks and a cigar. Our server asked us before dinner if we would like reservations for the cigar lounge, the service really is top notch here.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMservice was very attentiveservice was very attentive and professional. wine list is a little overpriced compared to Ruth's Chris and the Reserve just across the street. Would return4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAAAA Dining ExperienceWe went to the Chop House for our wedding anniversary. The ambiance reminded us of Chicago. The waitress, Hanna, was a true gem. Smart, funny, informed, and lovely. The food was unique, even if it was just a side of Au Gratin potatoes. Each menu item seemed to have a special receipe that most diners have probably never been exposed to before. Large portions. Outstanding wine list with even better flavors. Relaxed dining, no rushing to get the next course on the table. A memorable dining experience to treasure;)4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Chop House Grand RapidsThe Chop House Grand Rapids was an excellent experience overall. However, I would caution avid steak connoisseurs to avoid anything except the Kobe steak. The restaurant was out of the Kobe so we decided to try the Cowboy Ribeye. This was a mistake as it was very tender but flavorless and bland. They graciously allowed us to return it for the lamb (excellent). The chef also made an amazing beef tartare for us on request.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCouldn't be happier. ThisCouldn't be happier. This was my first experience at the Chop House andI would highly recommend it to anyone.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection!!Excellent! My husband and I had just returned from a trip to Seattle where we dined at a comparable restaurant. The Chop House exceeded their performance on all counts!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall everything was great.Overall everything was great. The steak was one of the best I've ever had. The scallops were a little overcooked, but still had a great taste.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMelt in your mouth filet - priceyFood is amazing here. Be prepared for the price though. We had been there before so we were prepared. After using a $100 gift certificate, our bill with tip was $400 for 4 people. You can cut this with no alcohol (we had 2 bottles of wine, no dessert (we ordered 3), and less sides (we had 4). We chose this place for a special occasion and do not dine there frequently. It is definitely a treat we may do once a year. Melt in your mouth filet though!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal!Service and food were impeccable, as usual. Great spot to spoil someone on their birthday!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb steaks, wine list diverseSuperb steaks, wine list diverse enough to satisfy almost any taste and budget. Very professional, but friendly, service. A dining experience to remember.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is Always a pleasure toIt is Always a pleasure to eat here. I held back one star for ambience only because it would be nice to have some view of the outdoors (esp because it was snowing out while we were there.) The wait staff at the Chop House is, I think, the best I've seen anywhere.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome as usual. Best restaurantAwesome as usual. Best restaurant in Grand Rapids.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
