Food is excellent, service is efficient, but the server a little too patronizing. A handsome restaurant with the only discordant note being the price of the cocktails which is absurdly high.

The Hanover Chophouse is the perfect restaurant for a special occasion. The staff is professional, attentive and kind. The food is cooked perfectly and elegantly displayed.

The food was just fantastic. From the breads, to the salads, to the main courses, to the deserts. Superb. And at incredibly reasonable prices. My tomato salad was amazing. We went there twice. The first time I had a filet with mushrooms. The second time was a filet with truffle butter. Both were superb and were cooked to perfection. We wrapped up with the 9 layer chocolate cake - a LOT of chocolate flavor without being too sweet and rich. Wonderful. Highly recommend.

Always happy with the chop house for our special occasion dinner. Valet parking, greeted by hostess and taken to our table. Before dinner drinks were quick to arrive and we enjoyed them with shrimp cocktail.
Sunday dinner special- salad,(tomato salad was different and very tasty) We both had the filet mignon which was tender, tasty,and cooked just right. Coffee and dessert followed. They even wrote “Happy Anniversary “ on our dessert plates.
Service was excellent and we did not feel rushed at all. Had an enjoyable evening to celebrate our anniversary.
This is not a restaurant we would go to every week, but is great for special occasions.

I would go back. Feel the prices should be a little lower. You're not in Boston or New York and the scenery on the outside is not always pleasant. (scenery part out of your control though)

We waited an hour and a half for our meal, even our waiter agreed when we asked why it took so long that we were correct and it has been an hour. When they came out they were cooked completely wrong. We sent them back. They came out again one still undercooked significantly and one was burnt. We were at the restaurant for a total of three hours and we never even got to eat dinner. The manager did all they could, but the special occasion was completely ruined.

Good experience. My wife said her meal was outstanding which was the surf & turf. I had the NY Sirloin and it was good but there was a few larger fatty pieces on the cut of meat they selected for me. If you are paying $50 a steak you expect perfect and it was not but it was flavorful. If the owner is reading this maybe more instruction is needed on the butcher side of the kitchen.... but don't get me wrong the steak was good. Good place to impress a date or a client. Desserts were very good. Piano player was excellent accepting requests and playing them to perfection.

This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. It is pricey, but the food is excellent and the service is flawless. I am not a meat eater, but the two in our group who ordered steak said it was outstanding. We chose the sampler for dessert to share and it was great. We especially appreciated the extra care that was taken to make the elderly person celebrating a birthday feel comfortable.

We traveled to the Chophouse from Nashua for my son's 25th bday. The food and service were both excellent. The mushroom soup was a nice starter and not something you find on most menus. The steaks were all done as ordered and very good, as were the seafood and chicken dishes. 3 of our party did the Sunday dinner 3 course meal and were very pleased with their selections.
We found a Seghesio Red Zinfindel on the wine list that we hadn't had in some time and were very impressed by it. Later we found it had a 93 from the Wine Spectator.
My son also enjoyed the little birthday attentions on his dessert. We'll be back.

Food was good BUT NOT great based on price.

Service was pretentious. Not efficient. Not real service, just pretend with lots of wait time for water, cocktails, and wine.

Took two waiters to serve us. That should be a clue !

Took my empty wine bottle without asking if I would like something else. Had my steak delivered by then and had to wait 10 plus minutes before I saw my waiter again to ask for another bottle. Only then told I had gotten the last one they had and had to ask for the wine list again.

Appetizer bacon sizzler and bacon wrapped scallops were OK. Filets were good but severely lacked any seasonings. Ordered mine Au Poivre and you couldn’t tell ANY pepper was in it at all.

Creamed corn was different but excellent!

Poached Peach creme burley was very disappointing. Had peanuts that were stake and tasteless and added no value to the dish. The peaches were hard and had almost no flavor.

The best service was from a young lady doing bus services. She served diligently while clearly being treaded as a second hand employee by the white starched jacket waiters while she cleaned up their dripped dishes. She impressed me enough to wait to see her and give a separate tip

Excellent piano bar player !

First time here and we'd go back. My wife had scallops and rissotto and she loved them..liked the plate good. She had a few glass of Kim Crawford that paired well with her meal. I had a 24 oz dry aged ribeye. It was surprisingly tough. It was cooked very well (medium rare) and the seared it very nicely, I've just had other experiences with dry aged meats which we super tender and flavourful, this one unfortunately just didn't hit the mark. They made up for it by having Pappy 10 yr (even though it's not listed on the scotch/whiskey/bourbon menu). Overall it was a great night out without the kids.

It's pretty standard for an upscale steakhouse, but still an outstanding meal. The Sunday Evening Prix-Fixe is a good enough deal that you will want to take your family more often than just special occasions.
