Ben's Chophouse Ratings and Reviews
Despite mixed reviews we decided to give the restaurant a try. My wife's steak had to be re-cooked two times. They apparently thinks medium is raw. The manager was very helpful and explained to us, that what everyone else in Georgia thinks is medium is actually well done. Our waitress was friendly but couldn't tell us is the steak was dry aged.
I did like that the entrees came with one side and a salad. It was ok but not at the level of other top steak houses.
The manager was very nice and worked hard to get the food right. The waitress was friendly.
We have lived in East Alabama for less than 2 months and have tried a number of local steakhouses. We have been to Ben's a few times and have always been satisfied. Our steaks were great cuts of meat and cooked just right. There is as extensive list of wines by the glass. It was just a very satisfying night out and was much better than a much more expensive meal at Meritage. We plan to be regular's at Ben's
We were overnight in Columbus and Open Table directed us to Ben's Chop House. From the time we walked in until we departed, it was an outstanding evening. Michael, our host provided a very warm welcome and handled our seating request exactly as we wished. Travis, our server was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgable regarding the menu items. Everyone displayed a genuine sense of appreciation that we were there as their guests. My wife described her steak as one of the best she had ever enjoyed. I chose the chefs seafood special selection that evening and it was simply outstanding. Bens had a great wine and spirit selection which enhanced our meal as well. Overall, a great experience and I will be back again.
Excellent service. I arrived and was greeted pleasantly. The service was great. My group was in the dining area but you could still hear the live music in the background from the bar area which was nice. The food was excellent. I didn't hear a single complaint from any of my group. The bar service was exceptional as well. The restaurant has a large selections of wine to choose from as well as daily drink specials. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We had our company lunch and it was not at all what I expected. First the waitress spilled the flower vase all over the table then finally came and took our order. It took over an hour to get our food which in most case it was philly cheesesteak so there is no way it should have taken that long,. Just was not at all what I expected from this restaurant. Not good at all.
Went for my dates birthday, wanted something upscale and local. Dissappointed that they did not have the ingredients for a mojito, so we had iced tea instead. Still cannot figure out the paper covering the nice tablecloth, seemed like something one would find at a crabhouse or something. Other than mixing up the side dishes each of us had, the food was very good and the staff very attentitive...
Service, food, and atmosphere was great. We decided on the restaurant because we had coupons. We were delighted with the staff and the food. I had the burger with sweet potato fries. It was perfectly cooked and the sweet potato fries were awesome. Great location and excellent service. I highly recommend it!
The chef's daily specials are usually the way to go (not that anything else isn't great always, because it is).....It's the only place in town that has a bone in filet that is very outstanding. And the pecan crusted chicken drizzled with honey is amazing too. These were both chef specials though but can't go wrong with anything that you palate enjoys. They also have great acoustic live music that's not too loud to talk to each other (and trust me, I'm hard of hearing). It's in my top 3 in Columbus for fine dining.
The Salad with Seafood was a hit at our table! It comes with large grilled shrimp, large grilled scallops and lump crab meat on top! It is a meal into itself but the chef has no problem splitting it between two if you want to Oder a nice steak to go along with it! We did and we were very pleased not to mention very satisfied. We also would be remiss if we didn't mention the attention and politeness of the wait staff. They were excellent!
Good chaw at an ok price point. Service was good. The curry chicken was surprisingly good, didn't expect that at a chophouse. Steaks were cooked correctly and all the food arrived hot and at the same time. Service was good and the manager checked on us twice. All in all a pleasant worry free dinner.
My husband and I were very excited to use our dealsaver coupon for our anniversary dinner, sans kids. Needless to say, we were both very disappointed in the overall experience, especially with the main dishes. Our appetizer of raw tuna rolls were delicious however, the rest of the food was not. The food portions were small, the prices steep, and the taste lacking. The ambience was not what is expected for a chophouse. The music which was classic rock was playing too loud and seemed inappropriate for a chophouse restaurant. We purchased a second dealsaver coupon, and I do not know if we will be using it. We left the restaurant and went to another one because we were still hungry. The service was good, no complaints but not phenomenal.
The food was very good. We both enjoyed our meals. The ambiance was quite nice. It reminded us of places that we had been to in Savannah. The truly outstanding characteristic of the experience was the service. Kevin was our waitperson. He struck a perfect balance between being on hand for any need while remaining apart to permit our uninterrupted enjoyment of the evening. He was very informative and employed top-notch communication skills with a fine touch of humor. This was a first visit to The Chop House. We'll be back.
The atmosphere & service are always good. I decided to try something different on the menu instead of the usual filet that I enjoy so much. Unfortuantly, the seafood salad was very disappointing. It came on a bed of generic iceberg lettuce with 2 scallops and 2 shrimp for $20. The seafood tasted delicious, but 4 bites of seafood is not near enough for the price when it's served on cheaper lettuce.
The food and environment was great. The reason I'm wasn't completely satisfied was the server. She was new and what not but she barley checked on us and left the empty beer bottle on the table. She was good in the beginning, until it got busy and then there was another couple beside us that starting getting unhappy so she only focus on them. We waited 45mins to pay our bill and in that time she was right by us about five times but only focus on the other couple. I understand they were a little shirt handed but all she had to do was turn around once she finish with that couple. The dinner was really good until then. So truly I don't know if I will come back or not.
We had reservations on a Saturday night. Our table was ready at the reserved time. The service was very slow that night. The food was tasty - I always enjoy the freshly prepared dishes at Ben's. We did not sit in the bar area, however, the live entertainment was loud enough to be somewhat bothersome during our meal. None of the negatives are enough to chase me away from Ben's. Though pricey for our family, Ben's is always on the list of favorites.
Streaks were excellent quality and deserts seemed fresh. Outstanding quality.
Service and knowledge of the product, something as simple as a beefeaters martini, was lacking. He was so clueless it became funny. Then my perfect manhattan ... he came back and said the bar had not vermoth. LOL. Then at the table he came back to announce this and as talking he stopped and said "hey wait, my manager is wanting to tell me something" ... he was right around the wall from where we sat. House salad he said was "mixed greens and not iceburg" and with that info, my Micheal changed from spinach to house. It came as a white bowl of iceburg. The server said, ha, the kichen is making me look like a liar. Then added " we are out of mixed greens."
We've been going to Ben's Chophouse since it was opened. Excellent food including a proprieter's menu! Ben often comes to your table to get feedback! We recommend the wine tastings, and Ben will use those to update his wine list with those hidden gems. Save room for dessert because they are decadent and delicious! There's live music in the bar on weekends, and during the wine tastings. Whether it's an after work drink, or a special occasion dinner, Ben has you covered!
