The food and drinks were amazing. The steak sandwich, the chicken and waffles and the french fries were phenomenal. Everyone should go to this great neighborhood spot and support!

This was our first time going to chopshop and honestly it will probably become one of our favorite places to go. Our waiter and care staff was amazing and the mashed potatoes were the best. Thanks for making Valentine’s Day fun and so inviting!

My fiancé and I loved it. The area was extremely spaced out and very clean. The food exceeded our expectations. Will return!

Great rooftop during COVID. Eric was a great server/bartender (spicy margaritas). We dressed warm and brought a blanket, which worked great with the heaters.

We had a great experience dining on Chop Shop's outdoor patio. It was well heated and socially distanced. The food and service were both excellent. Could not recommend more strongly!

After reading other reviews I was prepared to love this place. We did eat there on a slow, cold and rainy evening, so indoors. With it being a slow night, there was no excuse for some of the missteps in cooking. My steak was very hard to chew, and the Brussel sprouts were not prepared properly for cooking and I had to pare them before eating. The flavor was good, but they were not cooked long enough. My friend had the pork chops and was happy with his meal and helped me eat my frites after tasting a few - they were good. Our appetizers, the meatballs and the caprese, were good but not outstanding. Other problems: there was one choice for a bottle of red wine. Luckily it was decent. Horrible club music was playing when we arrived, but our very nice waitress managed to get it changed to something more suitable.
The restaurant has a certain charm that I am sure comes through a lot better during non-virus times, but I would have to give it another chance before recommending to others. This trip was definitely not worth the pre-tip $139.00.

Came here with a friend on a Sat night the beginning of Oct. We sat on the rooftop patio and though it was chilly outside, it was nice up there with the heaters. The decor and ambiance were very nice and relaxing. They had a band which was a lot of fun and not disturbing. I had the grilled pork chop which was delicious and beautifully presented. My friend had the burger which was described fantastically but appeared pretty blah and plain. He said it was OK but far from fantastic and really not worth the price. Pub burgers were better. Overall, it was a really nice place and I'd recommend it.

Patio was great place to eat and to listen to live music. Our server was very patient with me as I have a hearing problem. The prosciutto wrapped burrata was just the starter we needed. Our burgers were prepared well and quickly. The sweet potato fries were a table wide hit. Great evening.

Loved the food. We went on a Friday night & we’re grateful & surprised to hear live music, which was also terrific.
..Made conversation a little more difficult, so choose your time accordingly.
Covid protocols in play, so felt safe.

The food was good, but the atmosphere was even better. The rooftop patio felt intimate, but not claustrophobic. We were fortunate to dine on a day when a live DJ was present. We had a great time.

Chop Shop consistently has excellent food, drinks, service and ambiance. I highly recommend for a low key brunch, lunch, dinner or drinks. Love their outside rooftop area and it's low key vibe.

We were lucky to get a shady spot. It's cozy but i felt like there was enough space. Staff was very attentive and everyone maintained safe practices. Brunch standards w some twists, I had Chicken & Waffles, which were generous and good. The bloody mary was ok, nothing special, you're better off w the $24 endless mimosa. I love that it's a Saturday brunch and I enjoyed the DJs. I would definitely recommend it.

Sat on the rooftop during Aug 2020. Service was very good and following COVID guidelines. Everyone wore masks, tables were distanced and cleaned after each group left. Bottomless mimosas were actively filled throughout our brunch visit. Food was also good. DJ played club-like music and was so loud our server couldn't hear us and had to lean in close to take our order. We asked for the music to be turned down a bit so we could hear each other at the table which they had no issue doing. A good experience all around.

We went for a rooftop concert. I had no idea they had this, it was super cute with string lights. The wait staff made you feel very comfortable and emphasized the cleanliness, and enforced strict mask rules. The food was pretty good. The BBQ Brussel sprouts were a unique take!

Went there for a date night. We have only been there for concert before. First time dinning there and Chop Shop did not disappoint!
Everyone had mask on. If you want your waiter to come to your table, you need to put your mask on to signal. It made both of us feel safe and comfortable. Cute patio and great food! Oysters were fresh and delicious. Brussel sprout with prosciutto and house bbq sauce was AMAZING (we have been trying to recreate the favor at home!). Burger and steak were both perfectly seasoned and cooked.
One of the best dinning experience we had during COVID.
