A modern take on the classic American steakhouse, Arroyo Chop House is one of only a few restaurants in Southern California that serves exclusively USDA Prime beef. This strikingly handsome restaurant, inspired by the Arts & Crafts architectural style for which Pasadena is famous, is clad in rich mahogany and the cozy booths are bathed in seductive light.

Our steaks are aged and hand cut daily and then perfectly seared in a 1,500 degree oven. Traditional steakhouse side dishes include creamed spinach, baked potatoes, asparagus spears with hollandaise sauce, and Arroyo Chop House's famous onion rings. We also offer live Maine lobster and fresh fish, Alaskan King Crab legs, fresh oysters, and shrimp. Compliment your meal with a bottle from our award-winning wine list and finish the night with one of our delicious desserts such as a Grand Marnier soufflé, warm apple pie, butterscotch pudding or chocolate pecan pie.

WE had a reservation for 7:00pm but the party before us was camping on the table. The hostess was so calm and helpful. She located us another table, which was impressive due to how crowded it was, which made our night!!!! What a FABULOUS staff you have!!!!! The food was as consistent as always. It really is the BEST steaks in town!

This place never disappoints. It's been a couple of years before returning and my wife and I were worried if it was as good as we remembered. Yep! In fact, it was better than we remembered.

Great steaks! Corn souffle was delicious! Gran Marnier souffle was a delight. Ambiance and service were also first rate. Another triumph for the Smith Brothers.

Impressed by the service staff. We were waiting to be seated when the hostess heard that it is birthday celebration. By the time we were seated, the table was already set for celebration, pretty orchids and bday card handwritten w/bday wishes. We're seated by the piano and the player serenaded all night. Amazing but standards that never changes or being compromised here. Creamy spinach and wagyu beef are the best and chocolate souffle were perfect too.
Love coming back here.

My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday and had a great experience. Our waiter was very attentive and overall the service was stellar. I started off with oysters, which were perfect. My husband and I shared the Butter Lettuce and Goat Cheese salad, which was a little underwhelming. We ordered the special Tomahawk bone-in ribeye for two. It came out way too rare so we sent it back, and it came back perfectly cooked and utterly delicious. We had the garlic mashed potatoes and green beans for our sides and both were wonderful. I highly recommend the butterscotch pudding for dessert. Overall, a great meal and great experience!

Arroyo Chophouse never disappoints; it is always great! Love the Wagyu beef but all their steaks are wonderful. Great selection of sides and love the tableside Caesar Salad. Service is attentive but not too much. Hostesses are pleasant & helpful and the valet parkers remember you and are quick.
Altogether a great dining experience. Always busy even on a Tuesday evening & were using all rooms.
Highly recommend.
