Wonderful experience. Lump crab salad was delicious, beet salad was a must order and the ribeye and loaded baked potato was was of the best I have had. It was enough for two to share and still have some left.

Price is exceptional for the five star quality of the food.

Fantastic cuts of beef and classic steakhouse sides. Beautifully presented cocktails as well. In a Saturday night the noise level was slightly louder than anticipated, but not overwhelming.

If you're going for the slabs of meat, you won't be disappointed, and the music combo on Saturday evening was a nice touch. Everything else was odd. The service was awkward; for instance, there were bread plates on the table when we arrived, but neither the menu nor the waiter mentioned that you have to ask for bread in order to be served any. The food had some weird qualities; for example, the bread that we finally got (after asking) tasted like smoked fish (blech)--my daughter and I agreed that it had probably been heated on a grill that had previously held a fish. The wine menu lists 3 prices on many lines, without explanation; when we asked for a carafe, which we figured the middle price was for, we were simply told that "we only sell wine in glasses or bottles." Someone else had to come around to explain that the middle price was for a 9-ounce pour. There were other strange moments that made it a night not to be repeated.

As they say, George had me at 'hello' when he opened doors but with more than half-dozen visits in the last year - greatness seems to have vanished. While his chops are some of the best in the region - meat alone does not cut it. Service levels have dropped greatly. The $16 cocktails had me thinking I was paying for specialty ice (really George, have one of your bartenders make you a drink and then remove the ice and ask yourself if the 2.5 ounces is worth the price tag?).

Chophouses in America always offer nice American Cabernets to accompany the meat but at George's - you get one shot and it is "George's Blend" which no one seemed to know what was in it.

Finally, while I know many happy hours are tied to sitting at the bar to enjoy 50% off - it seemed unfair for us to get up from our booth and sit at the bar that had no one sitting around it at 6:15 pm) to enjoy savings of $32 off drinks plus apps. Worst yet, when we inquired - the response was, "sorry - that is policy." Seems another Bethesda restaurant is edging towards the cliff - really a shame with some elements so spot on.

We had dinner there on September 7 . The sliders appetizer was one of the best we have ever had; the tuna tartare with avocado appetizer was excellent. The strip steak was excellent and served already sliced with virtually no waste. The creamed spinach side was much better that served at Ruth's Chris; that is, the spinach was allowed to dominate instead of the cream. The double pork chop was nicely prepared. We also enjoyed the fries. The crème brulee topped with fruit was quite nice. Our server was responsive, informative and appropriately interactive. Basically, all of the food was great.

The booths are very comfortable and conversation was easy.

The only weakness of this restaurant was a wine list with very limited choices.

We ordered 3 ribeye steaks cooked medium rare and a lobster tail for our entrees. The ribeye was not marbled with fat as expected. This in turn made the steak rather tough and the seasoning was off. It just was not what I am accustomed to when dining at a nice steak house. The lobster tail meat was mushy. I would not order it again. The service and drinks were great. I will probably stick to happy hour here.

Suggested by my father we had a quiet dinner on Monday. The Steaks and Sides were superb. I would recommend George's to anybody. They are on Par with Morton's and better than Ruth's Chris.

When you first enter you think its a normal drinking bar but once you actually enter you get greeted by a nice host who isn't judgemental at all. You get seated at these large round beautiful comfy tables and you don't have to wait long when your server appears with glasses of water and asking what you will have. The prices are decent for the amount of food that comes on the plate. Be prepared to take an empty stomach and a huge wallet if you plan on coming here. Honestly this place was great, the food was amazing and the staff was really nice. The bathrooms were a bit dirty but not to an extent where you couldn't use them. This place is very unique and honestly I plan on coming here again with my family

Amazing food and our steaks were cooked to perfection (black and blue, just the way my family likes it). My parents are pretty discerning eaters and raved that it was the best steak they've had in ages! The only thing that needed a little improvement would have been the service at the beginning. The restaurant was pretty empty (a Wednesday evening) short of some happy hour customers at the bar, but it took about 30 minutes for our drink orders to arrive (two cocktails and one mocktail). And by the time I ordered a soda, it took a little longer and my father ended up going directly to the bar to order. Our server more than made up for that however with his pleasant personality and willingness to make sure we were ultimately happy and fed :) Thanks for a great experience. We will definitely be back!

10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a nice meal! Got the tomahawk it was to die for! Oysters as an appetizer were super fresh also make sure to try the thick cut bacon (mouth watering and as delicious as it sounds) and the bloomin mushroom! Chocolate cake for dessert to finish off a perfect night!! Chef Al definitely knocked it out of the park with this restaurant, just as exquisite as Duck Duck Goose!

The food was excellent and so was the service. The prices are higher when compared to restaurants in the area, but my steak was on par with the best steakhouses, where you would pay much more. The baked Alaska dessert is highly recommended. The place was a bit empty (although it was the middle of the week)- I hope things pick up because I intend to return for more.

We went for Father's Day brunch with high hopes, particularly given the $45/person price tag. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. The lady working at the oyster station seemed to be permanently confused and unwilling to part with the oysters. The prime rib was a little too beyond rare for my taste. The waiter did the bare minimum and brought the (not-so-little) kids their juice in paper cups (?). Overall the meal was fine and I was willing to overlook the lackluster service ... until the bill came and there was a 20% gratuity added to the bill for a party of four. At a buffet. No. I always tip well when the service is deserving, but this was ridiculous. And they even put a line on the bill for an additional tip!? Come on now. Next time back to Duck, Duck, Goose, which was spectacular (food and service). I can hardly believe these two restaurants have the same ownership.

I had been eyeing this place for a while and finally brought my parents and husband for Father's Day dinner. We had a 5pm rsvp and were the first ones there. Christyana was our server and she delivered outstanding customer service. Like 5 star, she has worked in high end restaurants type of service. Everything was amazing! Starting with the focaccia bread and oil, the mussel pot soooo delicious, the fried mushroom with white sauce was different but I wouldn't miss it if it came off the menu, and my Prime Rib was top notch bangin! It was seasoned perfect, they cooked it to Medium exactly and they thang was like buttttahhh! Melted in your mouth. One of the best steaks I've had, up there with Oceanaire, RARE, Joe's, and definitely better than Ruth Chris and Morton's. Surprisingly even better than the steak I had at Bourbon steakhouse. We will be back when in the area again.

Food was very good. Ambience was lacking and restaurant felt empty/dead (never a good sign). Service was fine but a bit scattered. Waaaaay too expensive for what it was/the experience. Wish we’d gone to our first choice (Joe’s) but they didn’t have a table available. Feeling bummed bc was hoping for a good special occasion spot closer to home. But, it just didn’t meet the mark. Won’t be going back.

George's Chophouse is fantastic. The staff is friendly and professional, the food is absolutely delicious, and the ambiance is very cozy. George's is dimly lit in just the right way, and the place somehow maintains an air of "fine dining establishment" without making the guest feel intimidated. Best steak I've had in the Maryland/D.C. area, above Morton's.

Been here twice, once on a whim to try the restaurant out, and a second time for an early fathers day dinner as my dad is travelling during the actual fathers day. Server was wonderful, she really was outstanding. Steaks were cooked perfectly, and seared to perfection. Desserts were 100% great. Not much fault I could find here, highly recommend.

Ooops one fault! lol Had a bad experience with one of their bartenders on my first visit with a friend. He doesn't seem to be there anymore as the rest of the staff was awesome!
