    The last 2 recent visits to the chophouse have been really disappointing. The menu has been changed, and not for the better. I do not know if there is a new chef, but the food has gone downhill.

    There were 3 of us dining. The service (Carrie) was terrific! The food, bar drinks and wine were all so delicious. We over ordered, of course! The baby wedge and beet salads were so tasty. The sides we ordered were sweet corn croquettes, roasted wild mushrooms and the jumbo baked potato (we shouldn’t have order the potato, but it was good). We also ordered the NY Strip, filet Oscar and the bison short ribs. Everything was fantastic!! I usually take photos, but I couldn’t at this dinner. But trust me, I think anything you order will be scrumptious and perfectly cooked. ❤️ The Monarch Chophouse

    We had a great experience here. The crab cakes, french onion soup and ceasar salad were to die for. Drinks were delicious. I do wish my ceasar had less yellow lettuce. We had the short ribs and steak Diane entrees. They weren't our favorite versions of those dishes but we still enjoyed our meals overall. Would return.

    Service was a little slow but worth the wait. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Wines by the glass have become expensive...$16 to $35. We always enjoy the amuse-bouche.

    $95 steak was full of grizzle so had to send it back. Supposed to be prime …Our luck but there was a huge party so it was very noisy. Caesar’s salad way over priced at $16… no greens. Not a good value for the money…. For $95 steak one expects much better quality.

    Excellent Service, great presentation. Unfortunately the bison ribeye was a bit to fatty of a cut for the price . Great up on a bison ranch. Was looking forward to a select cut. That was not a good cut of meat my friends.. Rest of the meal and sides were great.

    My wife and I were celebrating our 27th anniversary and we had an amazing evening. Erik, our server, was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. He helped us through the steak and seafood choices, of which there were many. The rest of the staff members were wonderful as well. We would recommend the Chophouse to anyone.

    We had prosciutto scallops for an appetizer and the prosciutto was way over cooked. The Caesar salad was great. The lamb chops were way too thick and very fatty. All was overpriced for the quality of food.

    Our waiter Chad was exceptional. The Buffalo ribeye with blue cheese mousse was amazing. The lobster tail was a bit overcooked but not bad. It is a great romantic experience. The kind you know you're going to spend a little more but the experience is worth it.
