We love dining at Chops. The food is always delicious. The Sea Food Tower and Warm Spinach Salad are some of our favorites, besides the steaks. Service seemed a bit off, but overall a great dining experience.

Overall, Chops was a good experience. Our waiter was very helpful and nice and the food was delicious. Our main complaint was with a host who was quite rude and condescending when we were asking about seating when we arrived before our reservation. It was unnecessary and poor customer service. Thankfully, the rest of our time was more pleasant.

First of all the food was exceptional! Even though they didn’t have the wagyu filet. The pepper filet was a great choice. The staff was very nice and attentive and also our waitress was very well spoken. I would definitely come back.

Not trying to be too nitpicky, but I expect better service and better food from this type of restaurant. Everyone was friendly, just like my other visits to Chops, but at a premium restaurant I don’t expect the same kinds of service issues that happen at a “fern bar” (empty glasses, missing flatware, no plates for appetizers, etc.). We had gnats flying around our table most of the meal and one steak was served very cold. Something I rarely do, but I sent the steak back and it came out hotter, but not as hot as it should be from a broiler. I personally believe there are better steak houses in Atlanta, but I wanted to try Chops one more time to compare. I’ll be returning to the other steak houses.

In our search for great steak In Atlanta, we found the best bone-in filet here at Chops. The signature lobster was fresh and mouthwatering. The crab cakes were authentic MD lump. We were very pleased with our meal and service. The restaurant was loud but you could tell it’s because everyone was enjoying themselves immensely.

Was not what it has been in the past. Very different service and unorganized. Food wasn't as greatly presented as last year. Service was chaotic and servers were over loaded. It was just not as good experience. Food came out different times etc. Noise, wait and food just wasn't the same as in the past!

Outstanding service, ambiance and quality and presentation of food .

Steaks were perfectly seasoned, temperature and cut thru like butter .

Caesar salad was crisp , freshly tossed not soggy and no heavy aftertaste like some Caesar salads .

Sides of Smashed Corn & Creme Spinach unbelievable good

Great place for dinner. Food is pretty much perfect. Bar is a fun place to hang around if you happen to be early for your dinner reservation. Only drawback was a birthday celebration was a bit distracting. Very odd to see an adult female stand in her chair and dance. ( (clothed) And I assumed Chops had somewhat of a dress code. Even if they do not I found it odd that a male would be allowed in with his pants hanging to his knees with his underpants in full view.

I have always loved all of the Buckhead Life Restaurants, and we cannot eat at Chops as often as we used to but we try for special occasions to spend a wonderful evening here. The food is amazing, love the lobster morsels, sea bass, steaks, desserts, sides... all great. And the service is impeccable. A perfect balance of attentive and friendly without being overbearing or feeling rushed. We had another wonderful evening there this past week celebrating a 14 year anniversary and we felt special. We also had a great table, to see all that was happening but quiet enough (with packed restaurant) to hear each other speak. Consistent high marks.
