Everything about Chops Lobster Bar made the night delightful. I had the filet, mac & cheese with smoked gouda, and creamed spinach. The steak was absolutely perfect, as was every thing we ate. The ambiance was intimate & romantic. The service was magnificent! I will definitely make Chops Lobster Bar a regular, delicious indulgence.

My husband and I were celebrating our 4-year Wedding Anniversary! Chops Steakhouse was where we had our 1st date so wanted to try the Chops Lobster Bar! The food, service, wine and atmosphere were impeccable. I had the halibut w/lobster special and my husband had the fillet. All we can say is Our choice selections were prepared to “perfection”. We finished our meal with two different desserts we shared. The evening celebration could not have been more perfect!!! Thank you, Chops, for making our special day even more special!

What a wonderful meal. Lobster Bar is my favorite restaurant. I had Fried Lobster for an appetizer and the very delicious Crab Cakes for my entree. Their Crab Cakes have large pieces of crab and just about zero breading. So good! The service was exceptional. It was my husband's 92nd birthday and everyone made him feel very special. You cannot go wrong with Chops Lobster Bar.

Early reservation however they were not ready to seat us (which was fine so we went upstairs for a cocktail). Our server was excellent and attentive. My food (Signature Meal Lobster Tail) was good but side note my partners steak was excellent! Didn’t too much care for the award winning Banana Cream Pie (lacked sweetness and just wasn’t good). Nice evening overall.

The service was very slow and not that friendly with 1 waiter for our table and no one assisting for drinks. I was there with 4 people. We weren’t asked for our drink order for 15 minutes. It took another 10 to bring us a drink and some bread as it was now close to 9 pm. It was so loud you could barely hear the person talking next to you and we couldn’t hear across the table. The food was average, everything came out in stages, the vegetables were brought out after the food was served. I ordered lobster and it was fair. I will not go back.

Please let me start by explaining that my line of work allows me the privilege of dinning in some of the best restaurants in the country and I have learned through the years what outstanding customer service is.

My son and i were on vacation in Atlanta and since lobster is one of his favorite foods I booked this reservation based on that and on Open Table reviews.

Chops Lobster Bar fell short at many small details and one major one.

• To start, we arrived on time for our reservation only to be told we had to wait, when I prompted the gentleman whom I’ll assume is the host, how long will it be for our table, his immediate reaction was to get defensive and downright standoffish and condescending - classic example of a restaurant getting too arrogant for its own good

• Our server John was polite and attentive

• Food:
- son had the fried lobster tail to start and the surf and turf (8 oz fillet and lobster tail) both of which were very good
- I ordered the lamb medium and when I cut closer to the bone it was raw - no big deal happens to anyone- I mentioned this to server and he apologized and took my plate back to the kitchen, so far nothing out of the ordinary in the level of service of a restaurant of this caliber. My surprise came when I received the lamb again and it was the exact same pieces I had sent back but this time charred in the outside, inside was medium well not medium. Receiving the food you just sent back is something I would expect from a chain restaurant not from a place that charges min $50 a plate. I did get asked if everything was ok but at that point I didn’t even feel like bothering to be honest.

We did get offered a complementary dessert and they did bring out a fresh side with the “re do”

We had many great meals while Atlanta, sadly this was the low light of them all, so much so, didn’t eat my food, had them pack it to go and gave it to the valet at our hotel

We were excited to eat at Chops because it has a tremendous reputation in town. I wasn’t blown away by anything, but it was a good meal.

SERVICE: We showed up on-time for our reservation, and were met with a nice greeting from the restaurant manager at the hostess desk, but awkwardly, there was some delay being seated because the young hostess interrupted the gentleman trying to seat us, so the two discussed an unrelated reservation while we stood around waiting to be seated.

The server did a decent job. My date and I realized we got an abbreviated intro from the server and I wish we’d have known about some of the features and things we heard being mentioned by our server to the tables around us.

FOOD: my salad and steak was great. The only food disappointment of the night was the Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese- I found it to be runny and unremarkable, with no depth of flavor. The bread assortment was well-done and tasty.

We are from Baltimore and love dining in Atlanta where there are so many great restaurants - this one hits the top of the list! We had to wait almost 40 minutes for our table with a 7:30 reservation, but once we were seated and treated to complimentary appetizers, the evening was delightful. Great service - very efficient and friendly; excellent food enjoying lobster and steak dishes; and we weren’t rushed. It was a great place to celebrate my husband’s birthday... which they provided a complimentary dessert.

Everything was really good, service, drinks, wine and the food of course. It was a little loud but it was a Saturday night so you kind of expect that I guess. Chops has changed over the years, definitely much more casual now than what I remember. Times change but the service, drinks and food were all top notch, just what you’d expect from Chops.

I surprised my significant other with dinner at Chops Lobster Bar for his birthday! The service was excellent. From the moment we walked in everyone that greeted us said Happy Birthday to him. Our waiter, John, was very attentive and professional. They even brought him a Happy Birthday dessert to the table. We had a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend dining at Chops Lobster Bar.

This restaurant has terrific food and delicious. The service was acceptable but, I expected better. Promptness was not the best I have ever experienced. This is not a place to go and try to be romantic because the noise level was high. I think it's due to the design of the restaurant and the material used for the ceiling. The ceiling is tile which does not absorb any noise so it just bounces all over the place. Overall this is a good restaurant.

There are many good -- even outstanding -- steak places in Atlanta, but none can outdo the bone-in fillet
(that's actually redundant, since "fillet" means boneless) with truffle and butter at Chops Lobster. The first bite was a conversation stopping OMG, and the rest of the bites followed suit. Order it. You will be pleased. No, not pleased. Ecstatic.
