Weather was cold so I had to have my chicken piccata with garlic mashed potatoes. TJ took very good care of us (we had 4 grandkids in our party of 10 before going to Disney on Ice). Beer is brewed on premises.

We were sat in a corner near the window with very little lighting. We had to use or cell phones for light to see the menu.

The waiter never told us what entrees they were out of until we ordered. He was very unattentive. I had to ask if there was bread or tools before or entree before he brought us the cornbread.

I requested a well done filet mignon & received it medium well. He waited until our meal was practically over to ask if everything was ok. By the time he came over I had eaten my other food. Food was nothing to brag about for the price.

Chop House is a favorite spot after seeing a matinee at Harmon Hall. Our theater group has season tickets to the Shakespeare Theater and this is a favorite place after going to Harmon Hall. The food is good and varied and the wait staff is always attentive.

Love dining here before a CAPS game. It sadly noticed the quality of the salads has gone down. I always order the chop chop salad. Usually great with mixed greens and lots of the other items added. However this time, Most of my entree salad was iceberg lettuce and the other ingredients, chick peas, blueberries, pepitas, were half what they used to be! Please go back to all mixed greens (no iceberg) and a decent amount of the other ingredients!

We've been here on several occasions before. We went during Superbowl Day, so the restaurant was not crowded, and the noise level was much lower than usual. Ordinarily when busy, the noise level, music volume and TV at the bar are unpleasant distractions to fine dining. Our server was pleasant and courteous but did not know about wines. (We don't drink beer). Our dinner of roast beef was well made, as were the green beans. There aren't enough types of vegetables as side dishes offered. The wine offerings are limited and of poor quality. A steak house of this reputation ought to serve fine wines like French Chateneuf du Pape, bordeaux, burgundy, Italian barolo, brunello, vin nobile d'Montalcino, Spanish sherry, tempranillo, rioja, and South American better quality malbec and bonarda, all appropriate for meat meals. We skipped desert; in the past, cheese cake and other offerings were lackluster. The restaurant is conveniently located near metro Red line, thus it is a convenient dive to fall into for a quick dinner before returning home.

Foil take home containers that you have to fold up to secure need to be updated.
Have been going to this restaurant for many years and they still haven't updated their take home containers. Other than that a great restaurant in a good location.

The steaks were excellent but on the pricey side. You have to come with a hearty appetite because there a few options for a steak under 10 ounces. The sides were fantastic. Great service and perfect cocktails!

TJ was our wonderful waiter and he helped make my son Brandon’s 20th birthday memorable! The atmosphere was also wonderful, a very special place but my older teens felt comfortable in casual dress. The steaks were amazing as were the mashed potatoes, corn bread and veggies! The location in DC was very convenient to the museums. We parked in a pay lot just 1-2 blocks away.

The food was great. First I ordered the soup,which was delicious and hot,but not too much that I had to wait for it to cool. The steak was cooked exactly the way I requested. The waitress was very knowledgeable not only about the food,but also recommendations regarding the beer listings. Great experience.

I love the booths - very cozy and easy to talk to others at the table. I think they over extend staff though - again our server didn't check back on refilling beverages and this happened last time also. Too many tables for one person I think.
