    My son’s graduation dinner: the salmon was excellent, the burger was great and cauliflower steak was delicious. Service was great . Good wine list. Dessert was good. My mom liked the flan, my son liked the brownie and my daughter in law loved her cheesecake. Great place

    First time dining here. We had an amazing experience. The table was already set up prior to our arrival. Which was nice. Our waiter, Chris, was amazing. He explained how the menu reflected local flavors and options. He also asked about any allergies, dietary restrictions or food sensitivities. And then he made recommendations. The picnic appetizer came with 10 different options, the fresh bread was perfect and the entrees were stunning. Everything was cooked to perfection.

    I ordered fried chicken and waffles. The blob of chicken was overcooked, tough and tasteless. The three small waffles were cold and hard. They were served with about 2 tablespoons of syrup and no butter. The presentation was ridiculous and the food inedible.

    The enclosed patio was cold. Wish they had heaters out there. We ordered a medium well filet because the waitress said they usually come out on the rare side, but it came out well done. They brought us a new filet and it was cooked perfectly! Overall it was good, and we would go back, but probably wouldn’t make a special trip for it.

    We had an early dinner for 2 on a Friday. This place is very busy on the weekends after 6 pm. Our server was excellent and attentive but not intrusive. I had the NY Strip (medium) and my wife had the duck breast. The NY Strip was cooked perfectly and it was excellent. My wife had similar raves about the duck. We split a raspberry/blackberry fruit crips for dessert which hit the spot. This was our first visit. We will be back.

    Local Chop and Grill is a great restaurant. So easy to make a reservation online. My family and I ate dinner there on a Tuesday night. We had been there before and were looking forward to it. Previously had the filet mignon, which was excellent. This time around my husband and I had the chicken and it was delicious. We were seated in the bar area, which was fine, but the table was a little sticky, which my husband didn’t like. Their homemade iced cream was delicious and paired with the warm brownie is like heaven! The service was great. They need to add more gluten free options since our daughter was unable to add chicken to her Caesar salad.

    I had not been to the Chop House in about 5 years, and unfortunately, the quality seems to have declined while the prices have skyrocketed. My cocktail just tasted like a plain glass of bourbon and cost more than I would have liked. No one came to take our order or say hello to us for at least 10 minutes. Our proteins were tough and hard to slice.
