Hand Cut Burgers & Chophouse is changing the way people eat burgers, steaks and all cuts of meat one meal at a time. We dedicate that every piece of meat we serve has respect for the animal and the land the animal has been raised on. Not a fan of meat? Do not worry...we have plenty of vegetarian dishes available, including many delicious salads.

The dining experience at Hand Cut is also dedicated to an elevated level of service and quality. We offer a fast casual dining experience during business hours Monday–Friday. And by sundown, we become a full service chophouse with fine cut steaks, pork chops, other quality meats, and steak house sides. Between our craft beer program, mixology cocktails and an elevated selection of fine wines Hand Cut will impress even the most polished of cocktail & wine enthusiasts.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent evening of dining, wonderful service and comfortable seating. We both identified that the music was a little too loud, which related in the adjacent tables trying to carry on conversations at an elevated level, over the sound of the music. We look forward to our next opportunity to enjoy another evening at the Hand Cut Chophouse.

The outdoor dining was without any connection to the restaurant. Felt abandoned at time outside with foot traffic going by. If you choose to offer outdoor dining find a way to integrate the restaurant experience with your restaurant. Perhaps you should rethink this offering until you study it more.

My wife and I enjoyed the food, but the service was average at best. Since it was a Monday night I want to believe that they were under staffed. Every aspect of our meal was off. From simple things like getting a cocktail to more complicated like my grilled asparagus arriving when my steak was 3/4 finished.
We will try again but with caution.

Food was good but poorly timed. My meal came out after my son was already done eating. By the time I got my food, the shared sides were cold. Was asked if I wanted a 2nd cocktail. I said yes but I never got it. The noise level was high so it was hard to converse.

The burger could have been juicier and it was very noisy from the music. But the appetizers and the sides were good.

If you like to think about clubbing during your meal, this is the place! The music was so loud and innappropriate at 8:00 p.m. We were seated toward the back in front the open kitchen. Combine that noise with the pounding techno surrounding the rest of the place, it was difficult for anyone at the table to carry on a conversation. Food was tasty, uninspired. Blah mashed potatoes, salad made with iceburg lettuce (not the wedge), bread that had been toasted too long or was stale. Bright spot was the salmon!

This was my third visit to Hand Cut Burgers&Chophouse. The first visit was wonderful! Great meal, great service. Totally enjoyable. I looked forward to my next visit. Not as good. While the service was excellent, the chicken was overcooked and not as good, but not bad enough to keep me from trying the restaurant again. It was a bad decision. This time the chicken was pounded into the thickness of a dime - and just as hard. Could not even cut it with a steak knife. The chili mayo was supposed to be served to me on the side - it was slavered all over what was supposed to be a ciabatta roll - but turned out to be a simple hamburger bun (which we later found was served because they were out of ciabatta (but no one told us they were out of ciabattas). And the cheese that was supposed to been the sandwich was no where to be found. To his credit our very nice waiter offered a free dessert and gift card of some sort for the next visit. I sent the food back and said this was my last visit and asked to see the manager. A very nice women came to our table and profusely apologized, looked at the sandwich and agreed it was awful. Bottom line, I was not charged for the meal and will not return to this restaurant.

Suggested by my nephew, took a group to Hand Cut for dinner. Drinks and dinner were good. A bit pricey. Wait staff was excellent. Noise level was off the charts. Would want outside table next time.

service was very slow.
noise level was unacceptable
no way to know there was a dj on the weekends...was there to see friends i haven't seen in 4 years.

couldn't hear a word each other was saying.

there needs to be some notification that a dj will be there and you won't be able to hear yourself think and won't be able to have a conversation

This place simply gets it. The menu features inspired takes on classic dishes, the cocktails are always on point, and the service has been rock-steady since day one. It’s at the top of our shortlist when taking friends and guests for a guaranteed great experience.

Our server Priscilla was excellent, very attentive, very apologetic for not having the sandwiches we wanted... at 12:30 on Friday the short rib dip was unavailable (baking for another hour), so two of our party had to settle for something else. Crispy chicken was very good, chicken melt was ok. Both had more bread than chicken though. Burger was ok. Sweet potato fries were good, aioli was great. Salt & vinegar fries are AMAZING. Probably won't go back but might just for fries! Thought it was a bit pricey since sides are a la carte.

We were having lunch, and not dinner. Despite any sort of large crowd dthe food took quite a long time. I had the burger and it was done perfectly; my companion waas also happy with his main course. I will return. Parking is the worst aspect of coming here.

It was our first visit to ChopHouse. All of our entrees were great. However, one very disappointing thing was the poor quality of the sides! We are veggie-centric eaters and this was not a happy part of our meal. The baked potato tasted like it was baked in the morning and sat around all day-served almost cold. The Brussels sprouts weren’t hot or well cooked. Mashed potatoes were not hot either. Not sure if that’s normal or just a bad night. Our server was very good and we enjoyed the ambiance, however.

More than outstanding reviews from all 9 employees. Thank you for the great service all around!

I went there with a group of five for a birthday and the overall experience was great! The food was delicious for the price and the atmosphere was fun. There was a DJ playing great music and the overall atmosphere was very fun. As a group of girls in our 20s, we would absolutely come back. It was very trendy and very close to the bars if you want to go out after.

The food is fine but the noise level is unacceptable. It get's progressively louder for no real reason. I've been twice and the sound levels seem to be getting worse. I can't recommend this place unless you want a loud place with average service.

We stopped in after a movie to grab a bite. We kept it simple with burgers, and since this was our first time here, I have to limit my opinions to what we had. Device was prompt and pleasant. The atmosphere is a little quirky and casual, and pleasant. The wine list may be a bit too,limited, and although there is a group of proprietor’s wide. The burgers were good, but to be candid, you can get as good a burger at many places including Zinburger. We liked it well enough to go back, perhaps for streaks or shops to see how they do. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
