Steakhouse
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.

The lunch menu works for businesspeople wanting a quick meal. However, I was taken aback by the really good-quality beef swamped by so-so sauce. Next time, I'll likely order from the dinner menu. The service is impressively good.

this was our first time to the resturant. we had heard wonderful things about the food. we were not disappointed. The steaks were great, our server was terrific, and the ambiance was delightful. We will definitely think about going back for any special occasions that comes up. A little too expensive as most items are ala carte for everyday dining but a great place to celebrate a special occasion

Comfortable traditional steakhouse atmosphere without crossing the line to overly clubby. Good food and generous portions but, again, not overly large just for the sake of being big. Those who ordered steak declared it tender and properly prepared. Various sauces and toppings are available but not necessary as a really good steak, like these, stands on its own. Fish dishes also were well liked. Our server, Reese, was knowledgeable and attentive but never appeared to be hovering. The pace of service was perfect. We would ask for Reese on a return visit. Prices are not low but the quality of the food and service give value to your visit. Bascom's delivers a special experience. You can pay more and get less.

Outstanding dining experience! Lee was our waiter and he was knowledgeable, attentive and made great food and wine suggestions. For appetizers we had baked oysters (fantastic!!) and raw oysters (very fresh), house salad (average), sautéed spinach and mushrooms and onion as sides (both excellent). For our main course we had the Australian Wagyu Rib Eye and the bone in Filet Mignon and I cannot say enough about the quality and flavor. Both steaks were cooked to perfection and were just simply exceptional. It was our first time at Bascom’s ChopHouse and we will be back soon and hopefully often!

Disappointing Experience.

Second visit to Bascom's with a reservation. We were seated upstairs at a corner table. This table had a great view but we would find out this was served by the bar tender, and would mean we are an after thought while all of the other tables had excellent service.

Level 2 had a great vibe. Very talented performer of live music. Some diners took a break to dance. Again great vibe.

Dinner consisted of a great, well prepared steak. Sides, salad, and bread were also delicious. Especially enjoyed the onion straws used to garnish the steak.

Bascom's consistently hits it out of the park with their service, value and delicious cocktails and food. If it's got to be a perfect night out, do yourself a favor and reserve a table.

My wife and I both enjoy our dining experiences at Bascom's Chop House. The service is great, the servers let you know what lunch specials are available, they give you ample time to go over your menu and are happy to answer any questions. My wife enjoys her petit filet, she orders it medium and it has always comes out to her liking. I have ordered some grouper specials, and the beef offerings, the beef selections are not over seasoned and as my wife says flavorful, I do really enjoy the soups , the lobster bisque is creamy, flavorful and properly presented. The onion soup is to one of thee best I've eaten. The drinks are outstanding, I like to enjoy an old fashion and must say they serve the best. Remember to go hungry and you will not be disappointed.

I was traveling for work and in need of a place for dinner, I was pleased to have found the Bascom's Chop House. I had a filet mignon and asparagus for dinner. The filet was cooked to perfection. The asparagus was al dente, just how I like it. The service was great, attentive and friendly. If I return to Saint Petersburg's, I'd make Bascom's a must eat.

The only issue we had was the noise. Went for a quiet dinner and some people were very loud and obnoxious in the area. It was impossible not to be distracted. Would have been nice if management had handled it but that didn’t happen.

Roger, thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, the dining room can get noisy sometimes when the restaurant is very busy. I'm sorry that affected your dining experience at Bascom's. If a particular guest is bothering you, please let us know so that a manager can address the issue. I made a note in your Open Table profile so that we can do our best to seat you in a quieter area next time you dine with us.

We arrived on time and were immediately seated at a table in an extremely loud environment, but were accommodated in reseating into another quieter room.
Our service continued to excel by our server. He explained both the wine and specials menu, and took our drink orders.
The food was again delicious. The steaks are incredibly flavorful, tender and always cooked perfectly to order. The side dishes are shareable accompaniments. Nice wine list.
Bascom’s is my “go to” steakhouse over Eddie V’s and Capital Grill.

Our evening was wonderful,we were not expecting to eat upstairs which was very disappointing
But our waiter was fantastic. The food was delicious and great portions we brought our pasta and dessert home and has it New Year’s Day yummy.
I made our Reservations in July to be sure to get a table, that is why I was disappointed with the upstairs table. And we were able to bring our own wine for a corkage of 25$ which was Finns we really enjoyed it

NYE and we were put in what looked like a cheap banquet room upstairs. Very disappointing. Never again. We were the only ones in there at 5:15 which felt weird, then by 7:00 it was so noisy and crowded it was not enjoyable at all. Our waiter George was excellent.
