We made reservations and when we got there we still had to wait. Our steak was overcooked so they brought us another one. The worst meal I have ever had here.

The USDA Prime Delmonico steak here is hands-down the best in the Tri-Cities! I ordered it with the lobster tail, and unlike most other steak houses where this is usually a small 4 ounce or so lobster tail, this was a 1/2 pound rock lobster on the shell with an exquisite seasoning that really kicked it up a notch compared to the average lobster tail. Outstanding surf and turf all around! My dinner companions also had excellent prime rib, New York strip and a petite filet. My favorite steakhouse in the area!

The food was good and spaced well. Only complaint would be that we ordered dessert after asking for box for my daughters steak. Our server brought the dessert in a box and the bill at the same time. I didn't want my dessert to go. I did not ask for my dessert "to go". Nor had I finished my glass of wine. I felt unnecessarily rushed when I was looking for a relaxing dinner with my grown children. It was very bizarre. I know that the restaurant was very busy. This just was odd.

Baked potato just Luke warm, sent back they brought another, out of the same batch ,as cold as the other one. Steaks medallions just warm also. Tables too close, not enough room to get in and out of your chair. Seating 5people in booth for 4,waiters could hardly get through aisles. Noisy, very poor lighting ,too dark. My chair seat was loose just setting on top of frame.

Enjoyed my steak but the other steak was overcooked. Our server, Lindsey, was awesome! We will be back and I'm sure they'll make up for the overcooked steak!

sorry, but your falling off the bone ribs fell short of their advertised virtue of fall off the bone...they were a bit dry and tough

An excellent location for our Friendsmas, it was well worth it! I loved being able to relax and enjoy our time, rather than salve away in my kitchen for the evening!

The service was good. The food was very good. I just prefer not to rushed through my meal.
Our reservation was for 6:30 we probably sat down by 6:35 or 6:40 . We had appetizer salad and main course with wine and had our ticket by 7:20pm.
Some people may like the speed, I prefer to enjoy the meal and not be in a rush.
All in all it was still very good.
Thank you.

It is a good chain restaurant (high-end chain). The managers are constantly wandering through the restaurant asking how everything is. I think we had a new server.

Great meal, kitchen was on point! Server was for the most part attentive enough to meet the needs but not be a constant interruption during the business meal. Steaks were perfect & sides too.

We were celebrating my daughter‘s birthday and we love chop house. The appetizers were wonderful, steaks were cooked properly. Our server took great care of us. The only negative part of our meal was the asparagus spears or too large and mushy.
Sanders spears would’ve been much more appetizing, otherwise everything was great

Food was ok. I got salmon and wife got filet. Salmon was ok and wife's filet wad good. For the price they charge we can get the same or better at other restaurants. Ruth Chris Steakhouse is better when it comes to steaks.

The Chop House is probably the best restaurant in Kingsport. The wine by the bottle list is good and reasonable. The assortment on the menu is extensive. My husband had filet and lobster tail, I had crab cakes. Desert was excellent, we had the caramel cookie with ice cream. The pork chop is always a great choice. The service was very attentive. You really cannot beat it.

It's been years since I've eaten at the Chop House and for the life of me I can't remember why!
My husband and I started with the Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes which was a light, spicy and creamy treat. The dish was so delicious and the portions were large enough to be a meal on it's own.
I had the Prime Rib with Sugar Snap Peas and the Horseradish as well as the au jus. The peas were crisp, sweet and buttery. The horseradish was the best I've ever had! It was creamy and tart with zero bitter aftertaste as in most horseradish dressings.
My husband had the Prime Rib with Blue Cheese Butter the Burgundy Mushrooms. The mushrooms were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. But the blue cheese butter!!!!! This is surely what a slice of heaven tastes like.
As for the Prime Rib, it was ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. I hate to be a cliché, but we literally did not even need a knife. Perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, just the right amount of fat and not a bit of gristle to be found.
We went for our anniversary and even though we were so happily full by the end our meal, the staff brought us the Carmel Fudge Cake with Heath Bar Crunch ice cream. So warm and gooey and just the best way we could think of to top off our meal.
I can assure you this, it will not be years before we go back. In fact, we're planning on going back for my upcoming birthday!
Thanks to the entire staff for a wonderful evening.

A true steakhouse. The food was excellent. The numerous staff members that assisted us were extremely professional and friendly. The prices were low compared to the finished product. This is a place I will frequently visit.

The prime rib was great as it was very tender, almost could cut it with a fork, although I doubt my prime rib weight what I paid for. The side was asparagus and it was way overcooked. It was limp and stringy as a piece of rope. My mother in laws pork job was great as was my wife's prime rib. I ordered the champagne salad dressing with my salad and it was so tart it almost gave me lockjaw. I don't remember the dressing being like that on prior visits. The waitress was great and attentive.
