A great place for a special occasion or for finding an absolutely flawless dining experience. A bit pricey, but well worth the cost - this was hands-down the best meal we've both ever had dining out. The sea bass was perfectly cooked, the NY strip was as well. Seasoning was just right. Portions are large enough that two adults could have split a meal and had plenty. That is especially true of the side items which are actually served in casserole dishes. In fact, I think next time, we'll order one dinner entree and split a meal. That would give us a very high-quality meal with impeccable service at a more competitive price - the best of both worlds!

I don't think there is a better steakhouse in the upstate. Love the old fashioned feel of the place. Looks like a place Don Draper would eat.

Chophouse 47 is a place for great dining in Greenville. The steaks are the best. (I cook a pretty good steak at home but can't equal Chophouse.) They will shell your lobster at the table. The wines are excellent. This is one of my favorite places and I travel all over the world. For a special occasion or if you just want to be treated special, this is the place.

I had the Fillet. The Chicago Charred style was amazing. we tried the Hot Bacon and Brooklyn French appetizer. Very different and good. Bread was so fresh. Thje cheesy mash potatoes are by far the best side. Great super Tuscan wine our waitress recomended. Our service was spot on. I would go back for sure.

The ambience was great and very much what I expected but I frequent high end restaurants and this one was just good. The only reason I say that is because of the pricing. We tried the wedge salad, caesar salad, steak and grilled salmon which were are very good but nothing more than I've had in other locations for a decreased amount. Other than the price point issue we were happy.

Chophouse 47 has been our favorite restaurant since 2003, a real go to for a romantic, special evening. You will never be disappointed in any aspect of your dining experience. The food is always outstanding, the service is provided by courteous, knowledgeable personnel. We cannot say enough good things about this restaurant nor praise it highly enough. Go and enjoy!

Great Pittsburg style on a great cut, monster asparagus and baked potato but it ends there. The extremely overly perky server was seldom seen. Literally, took order, ask about desert then brought check. Had to stop others to get a glass of water refilled. Extremely loud and hectic. With the a la carte menu and top end prices they appear as a Ruth's Chris wannabee and while they have the steak they certainly miss the mark on ambience and service. At $150 for 2 with no alcohol, no desert, and no appetizer I expect more. All said however the steak is probably the best in the area.

Was looking for a good steakhouse to take my Clemson freshman daughter to on my visits from NJ. A friend who lives in Greenville recommended. So glad he did. We have been twice. Sure this will become a four year tradition!

Having just moved to Greenville after 15 years in Atlanta I would put this steakhouse up against pretty much any steakhouse in Atlanta. The wine was great, the Blue Cheese wedge was delicious and the steak and sides were both fabulous. Great to know that if I want the quintessential steakhouse experience I do not have to go far at all.

I love the food and the service is always outstanding. My only complaint is the cigar smoke in the restaurant area. It is so strong and my clothes smell after eating here. I tried to get in the back room to eat, but there was a large party there. Please do something about the ventilation.

From the moment you walk in the door, you can feel the opulence and expect to receive excellence and you will not be disappointed. You are greeted personally, seated quickly and welcomed. Drinks run the gamut from simple everyday beers to the most sought after scarce wines, liquors and expertly made cocktails. You can even bring your own bottle of wine and they will open it and serve you for a small corkage fee. Steaks and chops are great. Done to perfection. And when softshell crabs are available, order one and just enjoy. Our visit was for a birthday, but going for any occasion will make it special. Never had just an Ok meal here. They are always excellent.

First time we tried Chophouse47 back in September when we moved to the Greenville area we could not wait to get back. But as I am sure you are aware due to prices it is not a place you visit often. We had a reason to celebrate so our first thought was Chophouse47. We looked forward to coming back so much but unfortunately it did not live up too our first visit. We could not tell people fast enough on how great our first visit was. The food was good this time but if we were served that meal the first time we may have not been so excited to come back again. However we will try again sometime in the future or may just come by for an app. and desert.

We had not been to Chophouse in a while because we had been going to dinner downtown for special occasions. From the moment I walked in the door, I wanted to turn around. Sitting in the bar to relax & have a cocktail was not an option because of the overpowering, nauseating smell of a cigar. Once seated at the furthest table from the bar, it took at least 30 mins to get the smell of it to go away. After paying $200 for a meal for two, I think Chophouse can afford to buy the best of the best air filtering system so ONE smoker does not ruin the eating experience of others. I will stick to city limits next time when I want a nice meal.

Although service was top of the line (we were there at 5:00 and there were only 2 other tables occupied), the food was entirely overpriced. The NY Strip and Cheese Potatoes were excellent, but the lobster was chewy and definitely not worth $50, I don't believe I will ever be back, even for a special occasion.

My husband and I were visiting Greenville from Charleston for my birthday weekend. We had always heard about Chophouse 47, but have never had time to dine there since we tend to stay downtown...I am SO glad that we were able to during this visit. The food was just excellent and the service outstanding - probably one of the best experiences I've had since moving to South Carolina 5 years ago. We were dining with another couple, just catching up and celebrating, and never once felt rushed. We also brought 2 of our favorite bottles of wine - our server had absolutely no problem with that, our guy rocked!! Chophouse 47 is a perfect place to celebrate!

Definitely try the filet Oscar - oh my goodness - you can't go wrong!

I took my wife to the Chophouse47 for a very special dinner. (Was the first time for us at this restaurant).The staff was just excellent in how we were treated and how helpful our waiter was. But the food was Just Great, and I mean all of it. We are from NY and ate at some of the finest restaurants NYC has to offer. I would match the Chophouse47 with any of them.

We only eat at this here two or three times a year. It is saved for special occasions. Every time we come, the food, service and over all experience exceeds our expectations. This past visit was no exception. Because of this, we will continue to dine here. We especially like the romantic atmosphere. Other establishments of this type have similar quality food but lack the overall experience we look for when we have a night out with out kids!!

The food was ok at this establishment but I dud not feel it was worth the price. My husband ordered the 1/2 onion rings and 1/2 fries and the fries were nothing more than a half of potato cut into 4 wedges and baked. Also when we sat down and did not order wine to drink we were instantly treated different. We noticed people in the area next to us having their potato cut open and prepared but when they brought mine they just put it on the table and left (which is no big deal I can fix my own but it was the fact). We personally will not go back. We would much rather go to California Dreaming or Ruth's Chris.

DBL decided to take our satellite staff out for dinner.The winter storm reduced us from a party of 6 to a party of 4. Our sever was "Justin" and he came through like a champ. We are a growing company based out of Miami and wanted to show our satellite employees our appreciation from time to time. Because of your incredible food & fantastic service, I'm sure you will be seeing us again in the future.

 (New Orleans)·Dined on February 1, 2014

Pricey, yes, but worth every penny. The steaks are done "Pittsburgh" style - charred on the outside, nicely seasoned, and amazingly tender and juicy on the inside. Ala carte sides we shared were creamed spinach and a massive loaded baked potato (definitely split one unless you have an enormous appetite) which you prepare yourself (fixings arrive on the side, which was just fine with us). Complimentary bread was fresh and crispy. Did not, however, love the appetizer of Oysters Rockafeller - too heavy with the parmesan and bacon topping, so we had to "dig" to find the oysters and spinach. I was happy that I read the other reviews concerning smoke from the bar. We requested the back dining area via Open Table and had no problem.

We have been to Chophouse 47 a number of times, the steaks are the best. This visit was on a Friday evening, a little later than than the main dinner rush ... while it was somewhat busy, things were quieting down.

It took quite a while before anyone came to take our drink order, then another long wait before the wine bottle arrived. They took our food order as they poured the wine. We had almost no wait before the appetizers turned up, even before the bread, followed by an inappropriate rush to clear the plates and bring our entrees. The streaks and accompaniments were up to their usual high standard, so it was a great meal, but we left feeling rushed ... clearly the shortest time ever at Chophouse 47, despite the long initial wait.

Prepared to perfection, service was excellent. It is pricy and a la carte but worth it for special occasions. Baseball caps are forbidden in the main dining room but smoking is allowed in the bar. The smell of cigar and cigarette smoke occasionally wafts into the main dining area.
Menu choices and wine list options are good.
