Food took entirely too long, and to top it off was contacted by Chops at 1130pm after my reservation accusing my table of not paying their bill. Won’t be back.

Typically when I go to Chops, I have a stellar experience. Unfortunately, that was not the case this time. The she crab soup, while delicious, only had two pieces of crab in the whole bowl. The jumbo scallops dinner I ordered, wasn’t. The scallops were actually regular to small size. Yet, I was charged the same. Too much bacon in the spaghetti‘s squash made for a very salty dish. Also, the apple pie wasn’t the traditional pie. It was more like a pastry and wasn’t nearly as good as their previous apple pie offerings. The Caesar salad was excellent as was the service.

Steak was good, but everything was tourist trap prices. Which I understand in summer but come on.. lol. I've spent less and I've spent alot more but the value was not there for the prices. My main disappointment was that they sold us some crab corn chowder soup that was more like cream of corn, couldn't tell there was even crab in it and for $18 🤣 that's crazy. I don't mind spending $100 or more per person at a fine dining restaurant.. and this food was good, but it wasn't good enough to match the prices.

Chops has exceptional food. Our table, once again, was right next to the kitchen. Even with reservations we never have gotten seated in any other area to have a more intimate dining experience. Our waitress was difficult to hear and rolled her eyes at us as well as other customers. We did see the staff and other servers bustling about with smiles on their faces. That would have been nice to experience. The only time our waitress came to check on our food was when it was immediately placed on our table. She never came back until we were done eating. We wanted to order dessert as we had a birthday in our group and she brought two dessert menus for three people. Odd service for a restaurant of this caliber but enough that makes me highly question a return in the future.

I gave it a 5 bc our experience with the food and service was great!! The only disappointment was the bourbon list sucked considering how upscale this place presents itself. The bartenders all agreed, and said they have presented that to the owners. Hopefully, that will change.

Chops is a great dining space. It is a lively ,friendly yet still a bit trendy restaurant with a not quite beachy atmosphere . All four of us were pleased with our selections and a very good bottle of wine did not harm the experience. If you haven’t been ,give it a go , if for no other reason then it’s great location.

Let me start by saying the service was great and the atmosphere was good. Here is the bad. First our steaks came out rare. After cutting them, we asked the waitress to return them and have medium steaks returned. The open kitchen aloud us to see the chefs response. He was less than trilled to cook them as we ordered. It was easy to see his reaction because not only was he maskless but had no net on his large beard. When our food did return, the steak was better except much like a diner or cheap restaurant they simple heated the very same ones we had sent back. In addition now the lobster was chewy and seemed microwaved or something. For a $230 dollar meal I expected better.

Went for my boyfriends birthday and we had Cody as our waiter. He was very attentive and friendly. The rack of lamb was the best my boyfriend has had. I got the salmon which needed a little salt. Other than that it was a great experience and we will be going back.

First of all, the service by the waiter and manager was excellent.
The food on the other hand was not so good.
My wife likes the Chop's Style Chicken Milanese grilled, which she ordered.
When it came, the chicken was so tough that it was difficult to cut even with a serrated knife and it was dry and seemed like it was old chicken. Also, what was supposed to be arugula was mostly a spring mix with a little arugula. We sent it back. When it came back, it was not as tough, but it was so heavily seasoned (including the arugula) that she could not eat it. The manager comp'ed the entire meal, but it could not entirely make up for a ruined anniversary dinner.
As for my meal, the Chop's salad was good and was a good size portion. The Fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp was not something that I would order again. The noodles were tough and chewy. The shrimp did not seem as if it was incorporated into the dish until the end, they were whole and still included the shell on the tail sections.
