We have been to Chop several times and always enjoy it. Delicious, well prepared food and great staff. This time we went for a once-a-year special on St. Patrick’s Day — corned New York Strip steak. It was great. Perfectly corned to capture the essence of that taste and still retain the flavor and texture of the terrific steak. It was served with mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts. Really a great meal.

My wife and I and her aunt were at CHOP celebrating Aunt Roberta's and my birthdays. Our waitress, Kaitlyn was outstanding. She was never over solicitous, just patiently waiting for us to make our dinner choices, serving our popovers and appetizer and beverages, but always being friendly and sweet. We loved our salads and our entrees were all perfectly done and delicious. We each ordered a dessert and, of course, Kaitlyn presented the birthday people with candles and led the singing of "Happy Birthday". Two hours later, before we were ready to leave, she helped Aunt Roberta with a problem on her cellphone AND gave us a $10 gift card for our birthdays. This was one of my best birthday celebrations at what has become one of our favorite places in Sister Bay. Thanks Kaitlyn for extra special services!

We arrived at 7:00 for our 7:15 reservation they closed at 8:00. The hostess appears not to be happy with us that we asked to sit at the bar before being seated for dinner so we went right to our table
We felt our waiter pushed us as well. We both had walleye which was very good even though my portion had many bones

Went on the recommendation of the inn keeper where we were staying and loved it.

Cocktails were unique and well crafted. Flavors were identifiable and blended well. I particularly enjoyed the Chop Old Fashioned with the caramelized notes and maple and the use of Door County cherries.

Appetizers were good, fresh, and served in a timely fashion. Entrees were beautiful to the eye and mouth. The mashed potatoes weren't heavy and still had tons of flavor. Both of our steaks were cooked a bit over for our liking, but knowing that we would just order differently next time, we asked for mid-rare and got medium (pink middle, brown at edges) but the meat was flavorful and tender so we didn't send them back.

The waiters seemed a bit too busy, it's a big enough and busy enough place that two waiters and a host/bartender were hustling, but we never felt neglected.

The one complaint was the waiters' use of an iPad to record orders - it created a barrier with the server that made it feel less personal. Maybe this is new technology they are getting used to? But certainly something to address for a restaurant of this caliber.

One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to, amazing steaks, seafood, and sides. Perfect atmosphere, great service, very reasonable prices. They have specials every night and early-bird pricing before 6pm. Overall, incredible dining experience. Ask for Adam to be your server, he’ll take care of you there.

The food was amazing. My only complaint was the owners or some staff were sitting at the booth behind us. Other staff pulled chairs over, they were being fairly loud. It was not the romantic dinner ambiance I had hoped for.

Compared to the other options it’s a nice venue but don’t expect something out of the ordinary. Fish, seafood dishes include wild rice it’s their signature on the dishes. Rice was undercooked and extremely salty. Their Chops/steak selections compare to those in the Milwaukee area. Presentation and and quality average. Service very good.

We went to Chop based on a gift certificate that came from the inn we went to (Churchhill Inn). It was close to the inn and since it was well below zero that was great. Bishop, our waiter was extremely friendly and did a great job. We both ordered NY Strips with the mashed potatoes. I had a Caesar side salad and my wife had the Mushroom Bisque soup. All was extremely delicious, the steaks perfectly done and the house wine very complimentary. We would highly recommend Chop to friends going to Door County, whether they were staying in Sister Bay or had to drive from another town to get there.

Had to do dinner early this Friday evening. They have early, 3 course specials from 5 -5:30. We had the filet and New York strip. Both were excellent, tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection (med rare). Salads were also excellent. Comes with a nice little dessert. If you like old fashioneds, try their maple bourbon old fashioneds with the tart cherries. This was our first visit here but not our last. Tom T.

We went there on New Year's Eve and I thought that the service was outstanding considering the large crowd. Our server was attentive and had a good nature for this evening. I had requesting a specific seating table when I had made our reservations a few weeks prior and Chop accommodated me. Thank You!

We had the Escargot appetizer and it was excellent especially in the way it was served. The crab bisque was also outstanding. My wife had the pork chop which was very good and I had the 12 oz. NY strip - I had it blackened which made it a bit salty but that was my choice. I certainly enjoyed though and I was stuffed!
