We were greeted by a very pleasant young man who showed us to our table. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and very well prepared. Our steaks were cooked perfectly as ordered. As we were celebrating our anniversary it was extremely nice to be given a desert to share and a card singed by the staff, Will definitely be back again.

Everything was excellent. Until I was about half done my steak. It was cooked the way I wanted, but was very salty. Very tender and juicy though. I would still go back though.

This is a steakhouse so we expected a delicious steak. Not so. Both of our steaks arrived way over cooked (I ordered medium rare, my husband ordered medium). Both steaks were thin cut and cooked medium well to well making them dry and hard to cut. Very disappointing. The salad, on the other hand, was probably one of the best side salads ever. The rest of the dinner was delicious. The manager wound up comping one of our meals which was a nice gesture but it still didn’t make up for serving us bad steaks to begin with. Would probably not go there again.

This was our first Chop experience and it was OUTSTANDING! The staff & service was a phenomenal. Our server, Miriam, could not have done a better job than she did during our visit to the restaurant. The Sr. Asst Manager, Michelle, even made a point of coming over to our table and welcoming us when she found out it was our first time. The food — OMG! Was fantastic! Everyone enjoyed every bite of it. We will definitely be making the trip back to CHOP-Barlow. Thank you for providing the perfect evening for our family!

It was great. Would have liked to have had the lobster cut a bit so we could get at the meat easier.

We went to Chop - Barlow for date night. Both my boyfriend and I haven’t been to chop steakhouse and wanted to try something new. Our server was very friendly and helpful. My boyfriend ordered the burger and I ordered the New York strip steak. The burger was pretty small and the fries were really overdone. The steak was cooked well but I’ve had better steaks elsewhere. It wasn’t the best steak- The Keg has better steaks. Overall it was okay, probably wouldn’t be my first choice to go to when I’m craving a steak

I would certainly recommend the chop steakhouse to anyone, the staff went above & beyond to help my daughter as she is a very fussy eater, they were fabulous with my children & it wasn't long after ordering our food did we receive it, excellent vibe fabulous place to both eat & drink.

Our expeirience could have been better if the coffe had not been cold when served and our wait time for the food could have been cut in half. Also the server never came back to refill or even offer to refill the coffees. The clam chowder was excellent as were the meals. Our waiter did remember to wish our friends a happy anniversary. We would probably return at some point.

We made a reservation and then when we arrived we were seated in the lounge. When asked to move to the dining room, we got seated at this small booth when half the place was empty and didn't make sense as my dad is 6 foot 4 so we asked to be moved again. We then ordered food which took over an hour to arrive and both my sisters and my steaks were overcooked n tasted cold. The manager was nice enough not to charge us for our meals however this wasnt a good experience and doubt I will be back for another dining experience

We have been to CHOP on Macleod Trail where we had an excellent meal and great service.

However, our experience on Father's Day at CHOP on Barlow was a disaster. We could not order one of the appetizers that we wanted because the kitchen was out of them, so we had to re-order a different item. The feature ale was Stella Artois but a refill was not possible because the bar was out of stock. We eventually ordered our meals but were very disappointed: one meal arrived as ordered but the prime rib was cold, the next meal was as ordered but the steak was very cold, the third meal was the same. The fourth meal arrived with a very well done steak when the order had been for medium rare. Some of our group ordered french fries with the meal but the kitchen was out of them. The fifth meal, for a child, was supposed to be spaghetti with tomato basil sauce but instead she received a lobster pasta. At some time a caesar salad that we had not ordered appeared on our table. We had arrived on time at 5:30 but it took until 8:00 before we were done. It was a school night so there was no time to order dessert and coffee, which was a big disappointment.

For a higher end restaurant, we did not receive the experience that we expected.

Excellent food, they were accommodating with us moving from the lounge to the restaurant and so were late for our reservation. Also, one of our party has allergy, and the server and the manager both double and triple checked the food prep. Very good food, loved my steak.

We go there all the time. We drive in from Strathmore Alberta. This time it wasn’t up to the same standards. The waiter realizing situation took it upon himself to rectify this situation for this visit and the next visit. Like I said my wife and I come here all the time service and the food is usually always good.

We enjoyed our 33rd wedding anniversary there. The food was very good and service was attentive and timely. We particularly appreciated the conp’ed creme brûlée! We discovered a wonderful Naramata wine “Daydreamer Jasper” which was a perfect pairing for the meal.

Our thanks to the Chop crew!👍

Came here for a bday supper, food and drinks were great. Service was great. Our only disappointment was the manager telling the bday girl that her dessert was on him, then when it’s dessert time the waitress says she can choose 1 of 2 individual desserts $4. Considering our bill was over $500 I thought they could’ve let her have a full size. Besides that it was perfect and we will be back. Best outdoor patio I’ve had supper on too

It was our 33rd anniversary and we wanted a fun dinner with our family. Chop did everything to make it special. Hab, our waiter, was attentive, and all the staff were lovely. The food was delicious, served in a timely manner and all absolutely correct. At the end of dinner they made us a lovely dessert, wishing us a happy anniversary. They also gave us a card signed by all the staff - really nice touch!

Two minor issues. A cracked glass that was taken care of immediately and the bread did not arrived with the soup as it was still in the oven. However, when it came it was delicious and very fresh.
