Went for our anniversary. Great menu, great service and surprisingly reasonable prices. We will be back!
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.
Top notch service, excellent steak, piano in the bar, wonderful place!
Loved our waiter "Smiley". He was very informative and entertaining. We enjoyed our meal as well as the gravy ")
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.
Great food and great piano music!!
No craft beers to offer. How is that possible with all the breweries out there now?
Always excellent food, great wine, and impeccable service. We just love coming downtown for a special dinner. Thanks for everything!
Service was great. Good delicious except salmon was over cooked. We had a 2 year old with us and our servers welcomed her. We were a little hesitant to bring her after reading a few reviews that felt the restaurant wasn’t kid friendly. Restaurant was very kid friendly.
service is best in the city! Food is consistently good, although not great. Price is reasonable. It's never crowded and therefore easy to get a table.
Last minute Birthday surprise planning turned perfect night. Excellent food, phenomenal service, great value for high end steak house. Thank you!
Service was not prepared for Mother's Day crowd. Food was fantastic but service was poor. Just very understaffed. We'll try it again to see if service is as good as the food before we recommend it to anyone.
Did not have our Open Table reservation...service slow and not attentive... dessert took :20 min to come out... half tables water empty when it finally did.
A little bit of a letdown. Also food not worth the cost.
The place wasn’t busy, but that didn’t take away from the excellent service, food and atmosphere. The lunch special petite steaks were prepared just as ordered, and were served hot. The food was delicious. Our server, Chrystal was prompt, patient and pleasant. I’m happy in choosing this restaurant for lunch and will be back again!
Well above what I expected. Food was flavorful and very satisfying.
Mercury often goes unnoticed (in my opinion) but it is one of the best chop houses in Fort Worth.
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.
I was planning to propose and concerned on time. I notified the restaurant beforehand and everyone from the valet, waitress, and cooks were great and instrumental in getting us in and out with great food and service! They made the night great.
Our small party of 6 selected this restaurant to dine before Bass Hall performance. Everything was excellent. The Server was great. Took notice of our time frame and delivered superbly. Highly recommend this restaurant
Service is stellar. Food is exceptional!
Great food with consistent quality.
Meets expectations all the time
Mercury Chophouse has a very interesting history, which you should look up before you go. Before I start everything was very good, my lack of stars is due to one thing. I had a reservation for Friday at 7pm. Peak business hours, wr were seat quickly and ordered cocktails, and myself and one other ordered the 20oz. Ribeye. A few moments after the server took our order, she returns to tell us... sorry no more ribeyes. At 7pm on a Friday? Being forced eat the NY Strip which was decent, but not what I was looking forward to. I don’t think I would return because the way things were handled was a bit amatureish in my opinion.
Perfect spot for party of 12 for birthday celebration! Delicious food! Super nice but not stuffy. Wait staff was excellent. Gave great recommendations and very engaging. Will definitely go back!
We really liked our visit to this restaurant. We took other’s advice and asked for a table upstairs and Michael as server. These worked out well. The food was good and so was the service. We were looking for a good meal but at a price less than that in the high-priced steak restaurant. Mercury Chophouse fit the bill.
Great food, the cordon blue chicken was amazing, followed by lava cake for dessert. Wow!
Tables were too close to each other and I kept getting bumped by the people behind me as they got up and the wait staff as they tried to slip in between the chairs
Great restaurant and the owner Zak is an interesting character.
We were on a mini vacation this weekend. Made reservations for dinner . Reviews were underwhelming on Yelp and Open Table, so I was a bit worried. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful restaurant with nice ambiance. Service was excellent and very attentive. Food was excellent! Steak was from Allen Brothers, tops! Reasonable prices. Not sure what the bad reviews were about. We had a great experience ! Highly recommend it!
Our server, Jeff, was fantastic and the food was delicious. Also, the piano player was very good and set a fun mood.
I was told the restaurant was hit or miss. I will say the food was really good. I ordered the swordfish and it was excellent. The service was awful. With a restaurant in an area tying to compete with other higher end restaurants, I would expect more professionalism. Our server seemed very overwhelmed and rarely checked on us as we waited over and hour for food to get to the table. Even rolled her eyes at me when I asked when our food be served. I probably won't go back.
Took a date here for Valentines Day. Certainly an extremely busy evening for any restaurant and I’m taking that into account as I write this review. Service was very slow. Received our dinner salad before we received our cocktails. My date ordered the tuna and I ordered the pepper crusted New York sirloin. We both felt the pepper overpowered the entire meal. Order the jalapeño cheese grits and they were very good. Place was very loud and we had problem conversing over the noise in the restaurant.
Experience was amazing. Food,service,and atmosphere are great. Strongly recommend to anyone.
Great dinner as always! Jaffar was on point as usual! This is a great little hidden gem in Fort Worth. Highly recommended!
The food was amazing as always, service was spot on, Michael is amazing. We had a fabulous time , wonderful food and a great dining experience. Our glasses were never empty and the timing between courses was perfection. This is the place for dining.
Fantastic food! Jaffar was awesome and took great care of us!
Went for a Valentine's Day dinner. We ordered the swordfish. Good atmosphere and service. Live music was great background, not overpowering. The risotto was great but the fish was poorly done. Rubbery and overcooked and just not right. To their credit, they comped the dinner without being asked. Good customer care. We'll be back and give them another try.
