When the original Bascom came to Florida at the turn of the last century to help Henry Flagler build the Key West Railroad, he brought with him his love for thick cut chops and juicy steaks. During his travels he also discovered the bounties of fresh native Florida seafood.

We have brought all of his favorites together in a true American Chop House that pays tribute to Bascom's hearty appetite and a passion for great steaks, chops and fresh seafood.

In his honor, we have made Bascom's Chop House a comfortable, yet elegant, American restaurant. We are proud to offer a superbly crafted wine list and American Mid-Western beef, aged to our own exacting specifications to ensure the most tender and flavorful steaks served anywhere at any price. And, true to our Bascom's Chop House name, we also offer hand-cut veal, pork and lamb chops all prepared to perfection, as well as a great selection of native seafood delivered fresh daily.

It was a very good second-tier steakhouse. It’s not Ruth Chris capital Grille or Morton’s

We always plan a visit to Bascomb’s any time we are in town. We usually visit two or three times a year.

As always Bascomb’s satisfies. From the Billionaire’s Bacon and fried lobster tails to our entrees (grouper and a NY Strip) we enjoyed every morsel of what we ordered.

Our waiter was very good. We wish we had gotten his name, but we failed to do so. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly.

It was my birthday dinner and everything was amazing. The lights went out and I was unable to get my birthday cake or the other bottle of wine we ordered, but that wasn’t Bascom’s fault. The weather knocked the power out. The food was amazing as always.

We went to Bascom's expecting an old-fashioned steak house serving a great meal and we weren't disappointed. As we stepped in, we felt like we went back in time. The walls had darker wood and light fixtures were from another generation. Overall it was tidy and clean, The waiter was very personable. He did an amazing job of rambling off the specials which were many. I had the grouper special. It was very buttery and rich. My partner had a ribeye which he described as cooked to perfection. It was a very friendly place, not pretentious at all. Parking was easy. A reservation is needed.

Our server was very good. I ordered a filet to be cooked medium. The steak was rare. The taste was average at best. I didn’t eat all of it because it was under cooked. My wife’s filet was cooked ok but wasn’t as good as we usually get at Boscom’s. My Manhattan drink was a little skimpy. I am giving Bascom’s a break because we were there on Easter. However we will not be going back to Bascom’s for a while.

William, thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that your meal was less than perfect. If you are ever unhappy with any part of your meal, please let us know right away so that we can make it right! Your steak should have been perfect the first time, but we would have been happy to cook it up to medium, and topping your drink off would have been an easy fix. I've made a note in your Open Table profile so that we can make sure everything is perfect next time you dine with us.

The food was amazing as usual. Our waitress Morgan was very attentive and polite. We enjoyed our birthday dinner with my dad. It was his first time there and he really enjoyed himself. We got the billionaires bacon and crab cakes to start. My father really enjoyed the Shrimp Pasta and the rest of us had different cuts of steak. The creamed spinach is a favorite side of mine. We finished with dessert and champagne. The creme brûlée was amazing! We will be back, we love the selection and service!

Our server, Steve, made us feel so comfortable and welcome. The food was exquisite. We had the Billionaire’s Bacon to start (my mouth is watering just thinking of it), lamp chops, ribeye, and miso grouper. Sides included creamed spinach, garlic whipped mash, and scalloped potatoes. Highly Recommend ALL!! I only rated a 3 for ambiance because we were upstairs in this side room. There weren’t pictures on the wall and there was nothing to look at but the constant ivory color of the walls. Everything else- perfection!!!

Bascom's is and will continue to be a go to for business and pleasure! However, my last visit was not only EXTREMELY loud with another group in our area while we were trying to conduct business, but service was much slower than normal. I have no doubt this will be the exception to the rule as every business has challenges from time to time.

We still plan on frequenting regularly beginning tomorrow!
