Our salads were just ok but the entree was superb!
Loved the atmosphere.
Service was attentive but a little distant.
Live music was wonderful! We will go back.
Owner went beyond call of duty to go to another restaurant to have our valet validated. We used a service not connected to his restaurant. Very appreciated!!!

I took my wife here for an anniversary dinner, and was so glad I did. The ambiance was exactly what we were looking for, that staff ( especially Travis) was fantastic, and the food was delicious. We have paid substantially more for other dinners that were nowhere near this level of an experience. We will definitely be back.

Food was good, I had a reservation through open table, sat us right next to piano, once they started the music I couldn’t hear our tables conversations. I went there for parents weekend TCU. Good place if you don’t want to communicate with your kids. Service was good, just too loud, I wanted to enjoy a quiet evening with my wife and son.

First visit. I had a "tri fillet" that was three small fillet mignons with three different sauces. They were cooked a perfect medium rare, and the sauces were great. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. This is one of the few restaurants I've been to in a while that served really good fresh green beans -- not overcooked and mushy, but not so fashionably under cooked that they tasted like grass and took forever to chew.

I have been here before, and unfortunately, this experience confirmed that despite a finer dining, higher price point, there are many other better options in Fort Worth than this one. From layout of the space, to quality of food and service, Mercury Chophouse does not measure up.

The food was good but not outstanding. I did expect a little better but it was restaurant week and a limited menu and I know they were busy. I will try again though as the ambiance was very good and the wait staff were wonderful. They have a very cute bar so would be a great place to watch a sporting event.

I wanted to give MC a great review, but unfortunately I cannot. There was nothing terrible but there was nothing special either. Our server was partly attentive and partly inattentive. When he finally returned to the table, he smelled like cigarette smoke. The mac & cheese was my favorite thing that was ordered. My steak was, plainly put, not good. There were others at the table that enjoyed their food, so I want to mention that to be fair to MC's kitchen. I want so badly for MC to be successful downtown. The architecture is great, the live entertainment was nice, I just won't return unless there is a really great incentive.

Pleasantly surprised, since I head read multiple reviews with comments about poor service and poor value. Found service to be more than adequate if not quite polished, and food to be worth the price ( although was restaurant week). Steaks were properly cooked, sides delicious, and dessert great. Extensive wine list. Only real negative was the pianist/ singer. Poor guy was trying, but should just stick to playing and not attempting to sing.

We had never been here before, and a Groupon enticed us to try it out. I got the shrimp and grits, while my date got the bone in ribeye and a baked potato. We both had a wedge salad. My shrimp and grits were tasty, but for $30, I would have expected more or larger shrimp. The portion was pitiful. My date enjoyed his steak, but it was also more expensive than other high end steak places downtown, and not more spectacular. It was 7 PM on a Saturday night, and not many people were there. We had a reservation, but didn't need it. We were sat right away without being able to tell the host we even had a reservation.

The restaurant is beautiful, but our server was
terrible. He wrote nothing down. He couldn’t remember who ordered what. Wrong cocktails and wrong appetizers.
All that aside, the thing that bothered is the most:
This was the third time we have gone to The Chophouse and ordered steaks and invariably
the waiter comes back 20 minutes later to tell us they don’t have that cut of meat. They have used the same excuse: The large party either upstairs or downstairs has taken the last of that particular steak. Very Frustrating!
Most likely we won’t go back.
It’s a shame, The Chophouse was one of our favorites!

Very unexpected and hidden restaurant. I was taken back of how awesome this place looks and the service was on point. Very family oriented, was greeted with smiles and open arms. Then the food came, the chef there knows food. Im a very lite eater, but ate every bite on my plate. The menu wasn't kid friendly but they did accommodate them which I loved. The kids were very pleased! The overall experience was GREAT!!! I would recommend trying this restaurant.

We are long time customers. Easter Sunday was a tad disappointing. The advertised special menu for Easter included prime rib. They opened at 11:00 am, and were scheduled to stay open until 10:00 pm. Our reservation was for 1:00pm. We arrived at 12:45. They were already out of prime rib when we got there--a serious disappointment to two thirds of our party. Also they have trimmed back their beer offerings: basically, they carry name brands from big American brewers (convenience store beers), and one regional IPA (although the IPA is on tap, for which, kudos). No NA beer (they used to have Kaliber from Guinness). Also, they added a $2 upcharge for substituting asparagus for the mixed vegetables that came with my entree. For that I received TWO stalks of asparagus. This place has always been pricey, but...really? All the food we had was good--not "Wow, that's spectacular," just really good. I know the complaints I've listed are fairly nit-pickey, but at $180 before tip for three people, only one of which was drinking (a single glass of wine), there shouldn't be anything to complain about.
It's gotten to the point that we have only been going to Mercury Chop House for special days like Easter. The past two or three visits, we have skipped the special menu and ordered from the regular menu--at greatly increased expense--because there was something about the set special menu that we didn't want. At this point, I think we may look elsewhere for a special occasion venue. It's not that there's anything terribly wrong with Mercury Chop House, it's just that there are other, more glitch-free and equal (or better) value places around with similar or better quality food.
