Disappointed. Pretty dusty place. Nothing special. Way overpriced. Breads were dry, too much vinegar in house salad, sea food meals were not fresh-fresh. Wouldn't recommend to nobody.

The food and atmosphere at BCH is second to none in all of Buffalo. What really makes this dining experience next level is the service, especially from Jake. If you are interested in one of the most relaxing and carefree dining experiences do yourself a favor be request him on your next trip in.

Food was excellent waiter and server very good but seat was not ready at reservation time & bartender could only do 1 thing at a time took 20 min for him to even great us after serving everyone else aft the bar, then another 15 min to bring my partner & I 1 drink. Also brought each of our drinks separately.

Make sure to request upstairs seating. So far, I've had an excellent experience and a poor one. It's not even the same restaurant downstairs...drafty, loud, distracted staff, bar traffic... upstairs was a nice experience the last time we went.

Had dinner here on new year's Eve. Standard upscale steakhouse fare, done very, very well. Service, food, and wine were all excellent, as they have been every time we have been here. My Delmonico steak, and my wife's lobster tail were especially outstanding. A special occasion steakhouse, pricey but great.

Buffalo chop house made my birthday a great experience for my family and friends. The food was incredible, there was a small issue with receiving the 50$ off for my meal. It was distributed amongst all the guests instead of the birthday party, but ultimately I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and my waiter Charles was awesome

My family and I decided to eat here on Christmas Eve and overall were extremely pleased. The appetizers were great (calamari, clams casino, banana peppers) but we were not huge fans of the bacon (it was tough). We ordered 2 bone in fillets - excellent, a regular fillet - excellent and the bone in Ribeye which unfortunately was not good - this was my boyfriends entree and he is a complete steak connoisseur but this particular steak was very greasy which made it un-edible :( we did not complain and in reading the other reviews it may have been an isolated incident. Otherwise, love the ambiance and the service was superior!!

This restaurant surpassed all expectations! Our server, Chris, was wonderful. He was very attentive but not intrusive. The filet cut like butter and the prime rib was equally as delicious. We will definitely return next time we are in town.

Everything was great for my girlfriends 21st birthday on the 23rd, except for the fact that the tip percentage was circled. Not only was it circled but it was circled on a seperate check on the right side. Being younger, I suppose this was because he thought we wouldn’t tip well. I still left 320$ on 248$ total, which I felt was undeserving but I would never leave a bad tip. Overall it seemed very disrespectful for a server to do that. The food was excellent, as was the ambience.

Our visit to the Buffalo Chop House was enjoyable in every respect. The service was above reproach; the food was nothing short of spectacular. The steak, chops and salmon were all near perfect and were enjoyed by all. Drinks were also well served. We look foreword to our next visit.
