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!

We love Chop. It’s the best food on the Door County peninsula. We think Jason is an exceptional server! He is accurate, personable and just all around terrific. Steaks are always great and the pork chops in apples are one of our favorites. GO!

We've been to Chop many times and always enjoy it. Unfortunately, this time the food wasn't quite up to par. We love the walleye and convinced our friends to try it. But the other night it was really overcooked. We'll try it again sometime and hope it's better again.

CHOP continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in Door County. They have great food, a superb early dinner special, specialty drinks are quick and tasty and the service has always been friendly without being intrusive. They were very accommodating to my food allergies; we really recommend CHOP

We've been going to Door County with another couple for years but we've never gone together to CHOP. Since we go off season in November, it was easy enough to get a table (though the restaurant will filled by the time we left). The food was delicious. All four of us loved our meals. The atmosphere was inviting, quiet, and elegant. Our waitress Judy was warm and attentive. It was a perfect evening.

Disappointed Saturday evening. Waitress seemed tired and disengaged. French onion soup was very average. Steak was overdone, and lamb chops were tough and overcooked. Staff sat at a table near us, eating take out pizza and folding napkins. Not what one would expect from a higher end restaurant. There are many other great options for dinner in Door County. We would not recommend Chop anymore.

The food was oh so fabulous! We had southern comfort old fashioneds, scallops with blue cheese and bacon as an appetizer followed by (1) tenderloin and crab leg entree and (1) tenderloin and lobster entree! Yummy-licious! Also, it was our anniversary so Dorian brought us a small sundae to share! Great experience overall!

Definitely worthwhile for the early-bird pricing with the food options! Excellent choices! Notified management of my hubby's birthday prior to arrival and we were seated upstairs, which was a much quieter area. The early-bird 3 course meal came with dessert and his was presented with a birthday candle--which he blew out too fast for me to get a photo, but it was still a good memory. Staff was very attentive throughout the course of the meal. Need to make reservations in advance, especially during the busy season! Wish they would be open more days during off-peak season, just need to make sure to plan ahead.

Chose CHOP for our anniversary dinner and wasn't disappointed. I made a reservation and requested a quiet area by a window and that's exactly what we got. We sat upstairs which was dimly lit and relatively quiet. Perfect ambience for a date night. We both ordered the surf and turf. At first glance I was disappointed by the portion size. Both steak and lobster seemed a little small for the price but it tasted fantastic, was perfectly cooked and we were both very satisfied. I'd definitely eat here again.

The food was wonderful, and our server was fantastic - attentive yet not overbearing. Bartender while we waited was also very personable and knowledgeable. We also were not expecting the 'Date Night' menu option, which was a great value. Great filet, great lobster, and a perfectly mellow ambiance. We definitely will be back.
