Great service, food items are a little pricey but delicious
Excellent New Year's Day brunch buffet! I do not know if you have done this in prior years, but I sure hope you do this again. Will plan on coming again next year. We have attended your Thanksgiving buffet for several years now. That is also excellent.
Ask for table that is some distance from noisy table of 12. Ask for a table that is some distance from the very bright, open shutters near a noisy table where table members appear to know everyone that walk by.
We have been here several times, however this time was definitely not as good as it typically is. Maybe with the holiday and they could not keep up? Service was not as good as usual, the sever got all the tables at the same time which was not helpful. Also my salad had a hair and I had to send it back the salad that came back as a replacement had egg which I requested no egg in my salad, so I ended up not having the salad. My Filet was overcooked and slightly cold. Overall we will be back but maybe not on NYE.
First time at The Chop House. Amazing experience. Didn’t know it was just down the street. I’ve been looking for a good ribeye since moving here three years ago. Finally, a ribeye that works. Thank you! We’ll be back.
Dennis was our server who was very knowledgeable with the menu, suggesting several specials. We selected the Sea Bass and Salmon, both were excellent. Highly recommend the crab cakes.
We were seared and too over 30 minutes for us to call a server over to take drink orders. Meal lasted almost 3 hours. Only 4 of us and restaurant was not busy, so service should not have been so exhaustedly SLOW. No bread offered. We will not go back
Excellent service, not noisy like so many places these days. The food was outstanding. Will definitely be back.
The prime rib was awesome. Very tender. The crabcakes were of good size and plenty of lump crab meat.
Casual dining although I dressed better than most. The staff was very freindly. The dining manager was very freindly but lingered at the table a bit too long. We would come back again . Overall they hit the mark!
Waitress was great! My boss had the taco and soup and was not pleased with only one fish taco. For the price, there should have been two tacos. Food was very good.
Food was good service was terrible
For a Thanksgiving Day buffet offering, we found the Chop House to be a very satisfactory choice for our tiny family.
A great selection and wonderful staff.
Horrible service. Would not recommend anyone going here.
The holiday buffet was excellent. A traditional spread with a fabulous dessert bar to enjoy. They had the most tender turkey breast I've ever had, and the stuffing was amazing!
We go to this every year, it still is very good. Not as many choices as other years. Do miss the full size pieces of pies that they used to have 4 or 5 years ago. This it started at 11:30, so zero breakfast choices.
Overall, my experience at the Bloomington Chophouse did not meet my expectations. The scallops that I ordered were over-cooked. The bed of creamy faro that they were served in was incredibly salty. My recent experiences at the Bloomington Chophouse have progressively gotten worse. Service is average.
Excellent burger, perfectly prepared, terrific fries also - just a little on the pricey. Great service also.
Our group of 7 met at the Chop House for breakfast on a Saturday. We all commented on what a good experience it was. We all had different menu choices and everyone was happy with their selection. The friendliness of our server and her attention to detail made the experience so very enjoyable. We will return!
The manager was really nice and friendly. The date night menu for Saturday was a great value and very tasty. We will be back.
I was staying at the adjoining Hilton Hotel with my family and so we tried the Chop House. We were quite impressed with both the food quality, preparation and service. All were great and we would go back there again. I had the petite filet (6 oz.) and it was absolutely delicious. I also ordered the asparagus. Service was great and at the right pace. Recommend!
We had the most outstanding meal and service. The booth we had was perfect. It was quiet and very nice. Our waitress and the rest of the staff were super friendly and accommodating. The salmon I had was the best I have ever had. I can't say enough about out evening. The restaurant week price was well worth it!
Can't wait to return!
Overpriced - skimpy cocktails and over priced wine with small serving. Tough sirloin steak - over priced for quality received.
After experiencing 5 different lunch or dinner fixed price meals during the October Restaurant Week, we found the Bloomington Chop House to be the best of all of them. The appetizer choice of ceviche was weak and not worth repeating, but all the other items were stellar.
The price was not quite warranted for the quality of the food (the food was very good quality, but not knockout quality-- and they charge knockout quality prices). The staff and servers were INCREDIBLE. They were very attentive, extremely polite, and very friendly. Overall, the quality of the food being 3/5 to 4/5 does not warrant paying 5/5 prices. Would recommend going elsewhere unless there is a deal going on at the Chop House.
Worst me service I have had in a long time. It took 2 hours to have lunch! The server was never around. We would ask for something and she never returned. Plenty of open tables around us so it was not busy as an excuse. The food was great but again we had to wait FOREVER between courses.
I was disappointed!!! We arrived there on time, and the hostess seated us at my selection, which
was nice. That is where it basically ended. The place was not busy, as it was a 8Pm dinner. We sat
there in excess of 15 minutes, without a waitress or waiter approaching our table. We could hear
the help, apparently in the work area, but until I finally stopped a waitress attending another party.
not in our area, we could have sit there, who knows how long. Shortly after I talked to this waitress,
a man, not a waiter came over & said, I heat you're are being neglected, and he proceeded to take
an order for drinks. After he brought them to us, we never saw him again. The walleye was OK, but
the broccoli seasoned with garlic was unrecognizable, and we were unable to eat it. I love broccoli.
however this was so hot, the two of us that ordered it, left it. The bonless ribeye was exclnt.
Our food was amazing! Highly recommended the calamari but with sweet chili sauce and the filet with Oscar topping. It was impressive.
Overall, my experience at the Bloomington Chop House was very good. My server, Lindsay, provided exceptional service!
We were celebrating our anniversary and mentioned in our reservation and they made us feel special. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Definitely a go to place.
Truly thought this would be an awesome place based on the name. It turns out to be an average hotel restaurant. Food was overcooked across the board. My soda wa syrupy. Service was great and ambience, but food quality and prep was sad.
Food ok, not impressive. Wine poured from small decanter but waitress didn’t pour all of it and left with the decanter.
Service was outstanding. They worked as a team. Was there for restaurant week
Forget the fact that this place is in a hotel. The food was outstanding. I had Prime Rib. Perfect. The service was great and the people so friendly. They left us all the time we needed to catch up with old friends.
Come for the food, but abandon any hope of fun — the good ambience is ruined by the terse service. In fairness, dinner was OK (bonus points for Hess Select & other Napa wines).
DO *NOT* COME HERE IF YOU ARE EVEN A LITTLE CASUALLY DRESSED. YOU WILL *NOT* BE WELCOME. THIS PLACE IS A PARODY OF BOURGEOIS ARROGANCE.
Get real, BCH. You aren't in Davos. You're in Bloomington (less than five miles from the airport).
Bloomington Chop House is a three-star alternative to the obnoxious chain restaurant options. You must calculate the value of the aloofness of the staff against the OK culinary offerings here. You may likely receive hostile glares from the silver staff here if you are wearing anything less than a dinner jacket.
Perhaps this place is upscale for Minneapolis, but I’ve had *much* better meals at excellent gastro-pubs for $25 / plate + drinks.
My red flags here ranged from being asked for reservations in an empty dining room, to scowls from other servers. The final straws were the audacious prices for meager portions of admittedly OK (not great) food. I don’t mind paying a premium for excellent quality; but the service was cold and the food was only a little warmer (and yet still a terrible value).
If you want selfies in a stylish dining room, this is your place. Otherwise, I would avoid. I’ll never eat here again, even though the food was OK.
Bloomington Chop House staff needs a lesson about the difference between wealth and class. They may serve wealthy customers, but they have no class. Excellence is about commitment to outstanding experiences.
The snide attitudes from the servers were quite hilarious, given the hotel-lobby settings. If you want to cosplay as a patron of an upscale restaurant, put on your Sunday best and come here. I don't think the menu justifies the attitude, however. BCH has mistaken high-shelf for good taste. I didn't see either when I went there.
I’ll look elsewhere next time I'm in the Twin Cities.
Our server Nicolle was wonderful! Food is always solid here and it’s a restaurant that has a low sound level, allowing you to have a good conversation. Great for business meals as well!
Recommend only on food quality and ambience but total value was over the top. Basically entree's have no extras such as vegetables or salads....pay extra for each.
Exceptional food! Great cocktails!
My group of seniors with dementia came in for a visit yesterday, and your staff were so accommodating, understanding, and kind!
My residents felt so special! It is not often that they get to go somewhere so fancy. They all came back home with HUGE smiles.
Thank you so much. I knew from what Andy said that it is a great place to work, but now having experienced it myself I can see why he likes it so much :)
We went to Bloomington Chop House for their Mother's Day brunch and were pleasantly surprised on so many levels. First, the noise level was extremely tolerable--which hasn't been our experience at other restaurants on holiday brunches--and the ambiance was pleasant. The server was prompt, and we were pleased to discover juices, soft drinks, and coffee were included with the buffet. The variety and volume of food available at the buffet were overwhelming, and they seemed to do a great job of keeping the dishes filled and refilled with fresh food. I loved how well spaced the tables were so that many people could be filling plates without bumping into each other. My only disappointment was that they ran out of fresh pineapple, but I can only imagine how hard it is to anticipate demand for any particular item, as well as to attain properly ripened fruits for a holiday buffet like this. I think this will definitely be on our short list of places to eat holiday meals at in the future.
