As always, the best filet mignon in Kansas (at least so far). Side dishes and appetizers were excellent also. Will definitely continue eat there from time to time. (A little pricey, but it's worth it for special occasions)

Love this place! Great ribeye cooked perfectly, as usual. Excellent wine list and whiskey selection in the bar. Super service. Every time I am in Wichita I try to eat at Chesters.

We are avid travelers and can honestly say this was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The decor, food, wine, staff and vibe of Chester’s Chophouse is exceptional. Next time we are in Wichita, we will definitely return. We can’t remember our waiter’s name, but he was the BEST!

My husbands steak was in his words "absolutely perfect". My linguini was rather spicy which I thought overpowered the taste of the seafood, but that is just my personal opinion. Wine was excellent as were the drinks. Waiter was fun and attentive. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Atmosphere and service were top notch! However, my husband had the $65 ribeye and was very disappointed. For that amount of money he at least expected it to be almost fork tender and very flavorful. Sadly the steak needed a fair amount of sawing to cut into and the flavor was no better than the average chain steakhouse. My scallops and our appetizer were phenomenal though!

We had some doubts going in about what to expect based on the other reviews. I will start with the only issue. We had reservations and upon arrive we were seated at one of the worst table in the place when their were very few guest in the restaurant at the time. The layout of the restaurant and the table we were given forced our two guest to sit with their backs to constant waitstaff and guest traffic. They were bumped in to several times during our meal. Now on to the good.. The preparation of the food was top notch throughout the meal from beginning to end and the service was as good as we've had anywhere in the country. Other than the seating, that could be improved, I would highly recommend Chester's Chophouse.

Excellent service, food was great (steak was overcooked for medium rare). Very loud inside. They had music playing on the speakers, you sit very close to other tables, some are which large parties that are talking loud to hear each other, makes it so you can't hear the person sitting across from you at your table.

There is nothing about this place for a romantic evening. They sit you too close to other couples and one person has to sit in the aisle. The steak when it arrived (ordered medium rare) was actually fridge cold on the inside. The value of the meal was horrible. I will say the Mac and cheese was very good. Our first night out after moving to Wichita and they did not give us a good memory to have.

Food wasn’t bad. Steak didn’t have much flavor. I ordered the 16 oz ribeye cooked medium. It took over an hour for it to arrive, it was medium rare with minimal flavor, and at least 8 of the 16 oz was fat. Disappointed that at almost $70 for the steak, it didn’t come with sides. Those cost $8 extra each. I ordered fries with it and they were very crunchy. My wife said her chicken was OK, but not great. On the plus side, the Philly cheesesteak spring roll appetizer was great. Overall, food was ok, service was slow, and menu is way overpriced.

The food was fine. Ambiance was fine. Server was a little over zealous but he did his job. Everything was fine, no complaints. If you want to go on a nice date at a decent steak house with high quality beef then Chester's is definitely the one you want. The white bean bacon side is probably my favorite thing there.

I like Chester's quite a bit. I have dined here several times, I went on my first date with my now husband (we even got engaged there). This was my first visit since the new owners took over, and the food wasn't bad, nothing was bad. Most things were pretty much the same, but it really isn't the same anymore. The changes that have been made are mostly small things, but those little things really made Chester's stand out, and now that they're gone it really just isn't as great as it was. That was disappointing to me. I don't feel so compelled to continue to return as I had before.
