Arrived at 6:00 for dinner with my wife, our third time eating here, the place was almost empty and they sat us next to a very loud 2 year old that made noise anytime he had to sit at the table. That made the dinner very unpleasant. My wife ordered a new salad they were trying out that had about a bushel of raw asparagus in it, she left the plate with half a bushel on it for the server to pick up. The manager asked what we thought about the salad and we were honest, this didn't result in the salad being removed from our bill which seemed odd.
Our other two experiences were good.
Steaks are delicious.

Steak was the best that we have had in Minnesota! The apps were awesome as well. The bread and Caesar salads were a disappointment compared to the rest of the meal. A great steak place should have a great Caesar salad and fresh rolls.
The rest we really enjoyed and would come back at some point.
Thanks

The ambiance left a little to be desired, but the food was great. We (4 of us) all had beef and for the most part you can have a good steak anywhere, but all of our different varieties of beef were different and were prepared very well and the taste was superb. On the menu it stated that the sides were family style, some of the sides were more than adequate i.e. the mushrooms were fresh not canned and a very nice serving, the asparagus was very good but not as generous, the potatoes were well prepared and a nice serving. Their whiskey/scotch menu was over priced. I would recommend this restaurant to any one who appreciates a good piece of meat. Yes Minneapolis has its share of good steak houses and this one rates with them.

We like to try new restaurants and find the hidden gem amongst them - unfortunately, the Chop House was not one of them.

Birthday dinner - did not even get a nod from our waiter until the hostess of two days (Toni) came by to see how our dinner celebration was. The hostess offered us a free dessert -

Food was okay - for such a sparse menu, you would think the kitchen would be a perfectionist
in preparation - everything was overcooked - the best, in a derogative way, was the med rare NY strip that was suppose to be blue cheese crusted and came out instead med well with blue cheese dressing poured and cooked on top. As much as I wanted to send it all back - my husband does not like to complain and ate it despite all of the gristle in a $40 steak.

Staff was attentive, despite the lack of birthday wishes or offering a dessert - drinks were good and to our specifications, I just can't get past the overcooked food and high prices.

Of and by the way, don't get upset if your signed receipt is actually higher on your bank account the next day. Apparently, the restaurant adds, without telling you, 20% more on your bill until the credit card company pays the actual bill. Then the 20% is removed. This is not common practice in the industry and and when questioned, was made to feel stupid for even asking.

I could go on - but I will choose to just not come back -

Good, no major complaints. Food was excellent, service was low key (in a good way) and efficient. My one bug-a-boo was when I left my dirty appetizer knife on the plate when I was done, but it was removed and placed back on the table for the entree course. Minor detail and training issue. But stuck with me.

The Mother’s Day brunch had everyone packed into the banquet room like a wedding. The tables were huge so impossible to have a conversation with anyone. The servers were scarce. The food was good but the overall experience made it extremely over priced. I would not recommend making a reservation at this restaurant for a special occasion.

We went to the Bloomington Chop House for Easter brunch this year. It was pretty good. They had a wide variety of foods and several seafood options, which was good for people who don't care for the typical brunch fare (ham, bacon, sausage, etc.). The food was good, although few of the dishes were exceptional. There were several different dessert options, many of which were very good.

The food is always perfectly cooked, of high-quality, and the service is terrific, we've gone there twice now with business acquaintances and everybody always stated how much they enjoyed the food. Whether you're going for steak pork or seafood, everything we were served tasted great.

I was disappointed in the portion size of the crab cake (about the size of a silver dollar). The prime rib was 1/3 fat and the mashed potatoes contained horseradish which made them disgusting and inedible. Other restaurants usually serve a veggie with their prime rib, but the chop house did not. Not worth the price in my opinion. I’ll be going to Kincaids next time.

Great steaks and seafood. The garlic mashed potatoes had too much garlic for me. I informed my server and he gladly brought me regular mashed potatoes.
Atmosphere was very elegant and easy to hold a conversation with others.

Usually I like the Chop House. This day, I ordered the sunfish sandwich and was not impressed. The toppings were good, but the fish itself was very dry and had way too much breading on it. I would not order that again.

We ate a breakfast, lunch, and dinner over the course of a 3 day stay and all meals were very good. A breakfast sandwich was off menu, but accommodated. The burgers and fish for lunch were tasty. Much to our delight the steaks exceeded expectation and the desserts were yummy. Service provided by Annette was beyond caring as she treated us like family.
