Steakhouse
Local Chefs. Local Food. Local Fun.
R. Davidson Chophouse first opened its doors to the public on February 18th 2016. Since opening we strive to serve exquisite food and give excellent service. We specialize in traditional American steakhouse fare including Filets, New York Strips, Ribeyes, Porterhouses, and more. Our side dishes range from Lobster Macaroni and Cheese to Garlic Smashed Potatoes, and are portioned to be shared with others at your table. The wine list is both exceptional and unique to this town as we tend to find wines that other dining establishments haven’t yet discovered. Our cocktail menu rotates with the seasons, utilizing fresh berries and herbs to highlight our spirits.

Server didn’t have too much interest in us. Heard him say smart comments when I did it want another drink. Food was outstanding

The waitress gave my boyfriend a steak instead of a burger, he ate French fires because he didn’t want to wait on anything else to be cooked.

We were celebrating a special birthday. The service as always was excellent. The steaks were very good, but the sides were very rich and heavy. I’ve eaten here several times and I wish they’d change the menu up a little

The food was good but the service was so slow even though there weren't that many people there due to the social distance requirements.

Red wine stored/displayed on the walls . Looks nice but wine has lights directed onto the wine which heats it, adding additional heat to the Alabama “ room temp “. Please note the recommended temp to serve red wine. Had the seafood pasta dish. It was very good but the scallops and shrimp were so salty that It sucked the life out of your mouth . Also had the duck which was cooked perfectly. However it had blackberry compote which was good but the seeds were left behind which left an awkward texture to the food. Bread and desert was fabulous . It was a good meal and nice dining experience that could easily been a 5 star with some adjustments. The hot red wine was the most frustrating and disappointing part of the meal.

The service was great!! Could not have asked for a nicer waiter. However the food wasn’t great. Two of the three steaks were over cooked than requested and even had a burn char on the exterior of them. The lobster Mac and cheese was ok as well. It had been way better in the past.

A little disappointed this time. Been many times before and always 4+ stars. Steaks were mediocre at best. Not great quality beef and not seared well. Fries were underdone. Wedge salad had burned edges on the lettuce, obviously not the way you’re supposed to serve salad! Martinis didn’t fill the glasses and weren’t cold. Grilled oyster app was great. Hoping for a better experience next time and chocking it up to a bad night in the kitchen.

Steak was perfectly cooked at medium rare to rare. Sides were plentiful to split and very good.
This is our go to place on T-town for at least one meal during visits.
Service is good and very professional something hard to do in a college town.
Highly recommended.

Steaks were great. Drinks are weak as they have a single ounce of liquor policy for all drinks, yet charge prices of drinks with regular pours.

Great spot for a terrific dinner. Even with Covid guidelines it was very busy. Drinks took a bit long to get to the table, and being that it's smack dab right in the middle of "Roll Tide" territory, we were taken by surprise that our server wore an Auburn facial covering? Not cool:(

We really enjoyed having dinner here. The service was amazing and the atmosphere was very nice. We took our son here before dropping him off for move-in day and he had a wonderful time. The food was very good. We had steaks all around. Unfortunately, my filet was a bit over cooked, but tasty. The lobster ravioli was not very good and I would pass on the lobster Mac and cheese, as the only flavor that came across was the smoked paprika. The fries were good and the creamed spinach was okay, but nothing to write home about. The dessert was absolutely amazing! My son ordered the 24 layer chocolate fudge cake and he loved it. The service was great!
