We went for the happy hour and tapas. Everyone liked the chili shrimp, gumbo, and tuna. No one liked the oysters which were very small and pale in color, not like charbroiled at all.

Food was outstanding- party of 9 and everyone was happy with the quality, preparation and presentation of their dishes.

Service was not nearly to the standard expected for “fine dining” as advertised: server auctioned off drinks (I.e. “who had the red wine?”) passing of dishes to the hard to reach seats - entree plates came out slowly (~ 5 minutes delay from first dish to last). No attention to detail. Very expensive for that kind of service.

The food was good but the crab cakes were advertised as lump crab meat and it was more like canned crab meat. Very stringy and not lump meat at all. That was disappointing given the upscale surroundings. It was almost as if they ran out of lump crab and went to Kroger for something off the shelf.

Yes sir you are correct. The jumbo lump crab meat does come in a can, as all jumbo lump crab meat used in restaurants do for crab cakes and such. All of our seafood comes three times a week direct from Off The Dock and we have tremendous faith in their products. Unfortunately we cannot control the size of the jumbo lump crab meat that is provided. We are glad to hear that the food and service were good. Let us know the next time you are dinning with us and we pick you out a lumpier crab cake.

Tapas and wine half price in nice atmosphere - great deal. However, it is available only in the BAR, not in the Grill, despite their reservation system advising us of the half price deal IN THE GRILL when we made our reservation. So it was awkward, in front of guests, to either choose to move to the bar or make a special request for them to honor the deal in the Grill.

We were so pleased with every aspect of our dinner at the Chancellor’s House. We were shown to a lovely table in the beautifully decorated dining room. Our server was very good, and seemed to know just when to appear. The main courses that we chose, veal saltimbocca and chicken piccata, were perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. For dessert we had a huge brownie with ice cream which was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal.

We go there for brunch almost every Sunday and the food and service is great. Easter Brunch was a different story; they called at the last minute to change our reservation and said it was a brunch. They did not say the price was $50/person. The Easter Brunch at CC of Oxford was $25/person. The prime rib was not edible. It was very stringy and I couldn’t even cut it. He put this huge piece that was extra rare on my plate. It took my appetite. The catfish and the gumbo were ok. I was very disappointed in the experience.

The food was poorly prepared and the staff was inexperienced. Could not eat my lamb lollipops. They were not trimmed properly and were the fattiest lamb I’ve ever eaten and I am a lamb lover so I know the difference. The manager told me that “Colorado lamb” is supposed to be that fatty. Instead of being at least somewhat agreeable he attempted to insinuate that I didn’t know what I was complaining about. I was not trying to have them removed from our bill but he handled it so poorly it then annoyed and upset me. I might have had three or four bites and the rest went back to the kitchen. So much for the customer being even partially right in their complaint:(

Thank you for sending us a review. We want all guest to get an accurate picture of the experience here at CH. Our explanation of the lamb was only meant to engage in discussion with you and to show that we have very specific method to our dishes; This being said, I can see that it came across as rude. We are sorry and hope you will forgive us. If you dine with us again, please contact me directly so that I may take personal care of you. My Phone number is 662-371-1400

While the food and service was excellant, we had an awful experience with the "Valet" parking, which is why we picked this place to begin with. It had been raining really hard and I had a handicapped person with me. We had to go down the street to park. The couple with me is local and it did not go over well with them, as this resturant is usually not crowed at all.

I am terrible sorry that our parking lot was full. We were sold out in the Hotel plus we had a wedding rehearsal dinner that night. Unfortunately we only have so many spots available to park. Our valet cannot drive cars off property to park them as we are not covered by insurance off property. The Hotel management & staff does not park in the garage on weekends as well to free up some extra spots. I am glad you enjoyed the rest of your evening and hopefully there is available parking next visit.

I would’ve easily given 4 stars in all fields had I not been sent to the lounge for dinner. I made reservations almost a month in advance and was told they were overbooked when I arrived. Subsequently, we were sent to the lounge to eat. Although it was nice, it was somewhat irritating since my guests had planned on a more formal atmosphere instead of an upscale sports-bar.

I am terrible sorry about your table being in the Lounge. We recently opened up our full menu to the Lounge for dinner guest. We did not realize that when guest were booking online that it was seating them in the Lounge and not the Grill. We were under the impression that guest booked their seats on Opentable in the Lounge as we have had so many request to get the Grill menu in the Lounge. We have corrected the problem and hope that you will return to dine with us in the Grill. Thank you!

We started with Harvest salad followed by three different entrees ( crab cakes, salmon, and veal saltimbocca ) which were all EXCELLENT! We finished off with Key lime pie. Creamy and DELICIOUS. Party of four and We all agreed that it was the best meal that we have had in Oxford during the past year. More menu selections we cannot wait to try. We will be returning soon.

We had reservations, but when we were sat it took a server almost 10 minutes to greet us. Unfortunately I had to ask the hostess to get our server. The hostess did not apologize but the server did, so that was nice. The placement of our table was odd. Very close to another table and tucked away into a corner. However, our server’s service was great. The food was incredible, the wine was delicious. We got the charcuterie board, the seared salmon, and the Sauvignon Blanc. I can’t wait to come back for more!

Thank you for sending us a review! It is though thoughtful reviews that help us learn from our mistakes! I did speak with the server about the long time that it took him to approach your table. He had no excuses and takes full responsibility! He is a great server and after our coaching session he will not let this happen again! As far as the host not being apologetic. I will follow up with her and we will have a coaching session as well. Thank you for helping us get better!

Their New Year’s Eve menu was incredible! The second course beef carpaccio was the best we’ve ever had. The only exception to a perfect evening was waiting 45 minutes for drinks from the bar! We completely understand that it was New Year’s Eve, however management should have anticipated that and had more personnel available to fill drink orders. We really like this restaurant and want to support it since it offers something different in Oxford. To their credit they got our meal back on track, and we had a wonderful evening!

What a disappointment we made a hotel reservation to have dinner here (the hotel is great ) so we could dine and stay in one place after reading several comments on the internet about food and reviewing the menu. I even texted the restaurant to confirm the regular menu would be available.

We arrived earlier than expected and asked to change our dinner reservation to 530 from 645pm

When we arrived there as a 5 top and 2 top and us all seated next to each other...e had no choice but to have a conversation with those sitting next to us. there was plenty of open seating......

My filet was great however the BBQ sauce with the shrimp and grits lacked flavor and the grits were overcooked....
when dinner was over we were given the check no offer for dessert or do we want anything else. It was like pay and leave now.

When we went to the bar we found out from the staff there that kitchen as closing at 7 pm ( don't know what they would have done if we stayed with our 645 reservations when we left the dining room before 7 there was a new table of 6.... Bar staff offered to get us dessert - we had drinks instead. Bar staff were great friendy and full of suggestions

at both dinner and breakfast staff was unsure of the menu and what was included.......it appears there were management problems and staff were afraid of the kitchen staff

We love this place! We usually make Happy Hour here once a week or so. Everyone on the staff is always friendly; from the (free) valet parking attendant to the person at the front desk and everyone in the bar/grill. We especially like the fish dishes. Everything is prepared and presented in a thoughtful manner. Our special requests have always been honored easily. We have sampled just about everything on the menu and it's not just the typical hotel dining experience.
