We live in the South End and Boston Chops is one of our "go-to" places. We've come here about 30-40 times in the past 6 years and have never been disappointed. The steaks are great - that's what you expect from any steakhouse, but what really sets it apart for us are all the other things, from the great apps (e.g. the beef checks served with mini tortillas and corn chips are practically a meal themselves) to the sides (we love the Brussells sprouts) to the good (not overpriced) wine list. Finally, they are also very friendly and accommodating to special requests. No snooty servers or bartenders at Boston Chops.

Two last things. First, if you've never shared Chateaubriand for two, this is a great place to try it. We didn't order it this time but have in the past and it is a very special treat. Just bring a big appetite. Secondly, the Brunch at Chops is excellent too. We especially like the beef hash and my wife loves the lobster eggs benedict.

I forget our servers name, but she had blue hair and was beyond awesome and accommodating to everyone.. including the vegetarian in our party. She deserves a promotion! The food, as usual was amazing. We really enjoyed ourselves. Looking forward to going back.

Nice place to eat. The service was exceptional, but the food was just okay. We had the dry aged bone in ribeye, crab cakes, French onion soup, the twice baked potato, and the Boston Cream Pops. The steak was good, but definitely not comparable to some of the other steak houses we’ve been to. The crab cakes were good, but not great and same with the French onion soup. The twice baked potato was actually delicious and if we went again, we’d just go for desert and get the Boston Cream Pops....those were delicious and very unique!

The manager, Andrew, was wonderful. We were there for our 20th anniversary weekend and he was incredibly thoughtful and generous. The signature ribeye was the best I have ever had,
We will be back.

The head server was basically going through the motions and letting the bus boys , water servers , and runners do the job . We were a party of 6 and looking for a leader to ensure that our dinner was
enjoyable , that person was non- existent . After leaving a 20% gratuity because I felt bad for the crew that were perfect in their
execution of the basic tasks , Our MIA server was at the door while we exited . I insincerely bestowed thanks for taking care of us . She said “ didn’t I get you Ketchup when you asked “?
Really ?? Ketchup ??

If you Are going to have a Server lead off the team and dining experience , make sure they are going to be engaged in everything , not just taking the order and getting the tIp!!!!

Wonderful experience. Had the steak and it was wonderful; much better than anything in the Seaport and better than any of the "Big" name steakhouses in Boston.
The service staff was knowledgable, knew it was a business dinner and was there when we needed and not there when we wanted privacy. Absolutely outstanding. The food was perfect; we will absolutely be back and will recommend to friends.

We've been here several times and love it here! We usually get the bone marrow app, but this time got the supplement with our steaks instead. Will go back to the app in the future though since that is served with toast (which we prefer). Hanger steak frites, rib eye to share, and several sides/apps were all delicious. Tuna tartare was also spot on.

Overall wonderful experience, but our waitress wasn't the most with our party of 3. My brother happens to be a sommelier, so yes he took a little more time with the wine list, but we spent as much on wine as we did on food... So I would say it was worth her while. She seemed VERY annoyed with us and had no problem hiding it. Everyone else we encountered-- back waiters, floor manager, etc. were thoroughly pleasant though.

Came here based on reading a brunches of Boston review. I ordered what they had recommended (the hash) and my boyfriend had the French toast. We also got the complimentary sticky buns, which were delicious! Neither of us were crazy about our main dishes but other people’s food looked good so maybe we should’ve ordered differently. The hash came with a poached egg and cheese curds on top but there was only about a tablespoon of curds & sauce on top of an entire pan of fries. Most of my fries were left untouched by anything on top and it was a bit under seasoned. There was plenty of meat, which was good, but definitely would’ve wanted a little more from a $16 meal.

We also waited about 20 min after being seated before our waitress came by but she was very friendly and attentive after that and we were outside on a nice day, so really no complaints. Great ambiance, decent outdoor seating, and friendly staff. Would go back, but would definitely order something else.

The steak was fantastic. I had the filet mignon. I could cut it with a butter knife. The steak was full of flavor and well seasoned. This is my second time here and it was better this time around. The first cocktail I ordered was great, but the second one (same thing) was just okay. It took the waiter a while to come over and he was not very attentive (like other waiters). He was not mean or rube, just not attentive. I think that may have been due to the restaurant being crowded.

Overall, I would definitely go back for the steak.

Accommodated many reservation adjustments and initially had knowledgeable attentive server. Some time after starters plates arrived both server and drinks person stopped regular check-ins. This meant continuous requests of others for remainder of night. Wanted to continue our celebratory dinner, which was noted when made reservations and acknowledged by server, however decided to ask hostess and owner for check due to non-existence server never returning. Food was good and trendy - braised Brussels sprouts, bone marrow, tuna tartare, Mac 'n cheese, meat (horseradish, chimichurri butter) sauces - complimented wide selection of meats and fish. Overall if in area and other steak houses unable to accommodate group try BOS Chops. Otherwise find alternative restaurant.

Table for 5, had the royal tower and steaks all around. the bone in rib eye was perfectly prepared. Nice wine selection. Service was attentive but not overly so. My guests were impressed with the steaks as we had pretty much one of every class. Don't miss the tongue app, not at all what you expect.
