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.

For a Thanksgiving Day buffet offering, we found the Chop House to be a very satisfactory choice for our tiny family.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Masochists enjoy.

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.

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.

My time at Bloomington Chop House was very enjoyable. The ribeye that I ordered was the best ever.
We had the chopped salad which was something I had never seen or eaten before. It tasted OK
but not something we would order again. Due to the cost we can't dine with you that often but the
steak was outstanding.

The Easter buffet was excellent! I never liked Mac n cheese but their lobster Mac n cheese was really good. The only downside was the dessert. They didn’t have an excellent choice for dessert but the appetizers and entrees were amazing!

Easter Buffett. First seating, ten tables filled, host set my daughter and I in a dark table in the corner. Open booths, tables by windows everywhere, I requested a better table when waiter showed up and was informed that they had 600 to be seated for the day. We couldn’t have a different table. Had to wait/ask for beverage menu and drinks. We where done dining and the area was half full. Would they have done that to two men? Nope. My 120.00 is the same as their 120.00. Perhaps even more.
