Always wonderful to dine at Chops Lobster Bar. The service is excellent and the food delicious. This was a very snowy night in Atlanta and very few people ventured out. We had a lovely time and enjoyed our meal.Although the restaurant closed at 7:30 to new customers, those that were already seated enjoyed a lovely evening. Look forward to the next visit!

This was my first time here since moving to Atlanta. Really enjoyed the atmosphere, service was great. A little high, my guest sent her Salad back and the Salmon to be honest really lacked flavor from considering the cost. Overall, it was a great dinning experience. Wine selection was limited on Merlot but I would consider going back again and taking friends.

Was put in the lobster bar and was unable to change to the upper level. The food was down from the normal Buckhead life group standard. Had to ask for more bread, appetizer was below average, entree was fine.
For the price would have expected more.

It was very busy the night before the SEC championship and they were overwhelmed. Given that they’re used to be this busy it shouldn’t be an excuse...Service was terrible. Bones actually appreciates your business. Chops does not value your business like they should. Our 12 oz filet we shared was sliced horizontally, instead of vertically down the middle. It was over cooked and really salty. The filet was removed from the bill, which was appropriate. I just still have to give the overall experience 2 stars.

Food was Ok. We did not order the lobster bisque because there was no Lobster in it, you had to pay extra for lobster bits. We have had better steak, cheaper [ Like at Stoney River]. Waiters very STUFFY not friendly at all. Very disappointed.

Good restaurant with juicy steaks. I had the pepper filet and my girlfriend had the regular filet. Both were juicy and melted in your mouth. The wine choice was extensive but we had good bottle that was recommended by the staff. I would go here again.

Still on of the best spots in Atlanta. Food and ambiance were great. My only issue with this experience was the service. Our waiter disappeared for awhile at a critical time during our meal, and we had empty glasses and wanted to order more sides. I had to call over the host to find him. Maybe he had too many tables or some other issue, but that really had an impact on our overall experience.

I was here for my best friend’s bachelorette party. Our server was rude and you could tell he did not want to serve us the entire time. He would walk away when I wasn’t finished ordering and was incredibly short with us for the duration of dinner. The food here is mediocre at best. Combine that with the terrible service and stuffy old school atmosphere...I will not recommend this place to anyone. There are much more fun and inclusive places in Atlanta with great dishes. Don’t judge a book by its cover boys, just because we were dressed up for a fun bachelorette party night doesn’t mean I’ll blink at the bill when it comes out. We were there to spend money and treated like trash. We ordered multiple rounds of drinks, apps and entrees at the table only to be greeted with complete disdain. It’s pretty shameful this is considered one of the best places in Atlanta. I’ve had better service and food at a TGI Friday’s. I also watched the really sweet hostess get screamed at for 15 minutes while a manager never showed up to tell a guest to calm down. This place overpromises and under-delivers in every sense. Go here if you have more money than sense, because you definitely aren’t going for the service or food.

The Lobster Bar has always been a favorite. That said, the crab cakes were ice cold and the waiter was incredibly preoccupied with getting us in and out. We really felt rushed and couldn't enjoy our meal and conversation because he kept interrupting us.

Our experience at Chops was absolutely amazing from the time we walked into the door. Exceptional service and staff. The food was phenomenal. The bone-in filet is where it is at! My husband and I dined in there Friday night for a special date night. Thank you for the awesome memory.

First time at Chops and I must say I was very impressed. Valet service was good. Once you enter the hostess and waiters greet you by name. They have me the option to sit upstairs or downstairs. We were celebrating a birthday and they ensured we had an experience to remember.

My wife and I dined at Chops on a recent visit to Atlanta. We sat in the downstairs lobster bar. It was outstanding. The ambience, service, and meal was superb . Great menu selection. I had a hard time deciding among the many choices that sounded delicious .

We will definitely return !

We had a late reservation for my husband's birthday. I was afraid they may be sold out of some items but happily they were not. Crab cocktails are always amazing. I wanted stone crabs but at $26 a claw I passed. I can wait until we get to Florida for those. I will however get lobster next time because the plates going by with lobster looked amazing. Very friendly staff especially for a high end restaurant. No attitude like the company restaurant above.
