The Chophouse is an oasis of great food, music and cocktails out here in East Texas. The service is always wonderful. Especially Colton in the bar and Karly as our waitress. The food is excellent. We had the special which was spaghetti bolognese and asked for it spicy. Chef gave it the perfect kick!

Quaint building located right downtown on the square in Mount Vernon. Tasty & creative fine-dining dishes. Decent spectrum of good wine options. The service was fantastic & the people really try to ensure the experience was wonderful. It's one of the best dining options in the area.

I could "nitpick" a tad but considering the undesirable weather, Covid regs, and Valentine celebrations for so many, I felt "outstanding" is the proper rating. We will certainly return.

Our thanks to Wendy and staff.

We had a party of six and the menu has such a varied offering that everyone had their choice from pasta, seafood , and beef. Service was excellent from Carley and Wendy, the general manager was a through but unobtrusive presence in the dining room. She professionally interacted with diners while keeping the food and beverage flow “on the rails”.
The quality of the food and its presentation was excellent. When an anniversary celebration was communicated they fussed over the celebrants. A side note, there was a guitar strumming singer that provided a nice relaxed ambience to the evening playing country standards.
He had a great voice as well.
All in all The Chophouse is a hidden oasis of fine dining in East Texas.

Food was fine not 4.7 on my radar first a chophouse in my book is STEAK -STEAK AND STEAK - service was extremely good - my pork chop was OVERCOOKED but once I mentioned the GM had another one fired up and back out within 15 🥰. Others liked the eggplant parmigiana so maybe just specify how you want you meat cooked !

My salmon was overcooked and very dry - certainly not worth $18. I should have sent it back. However, my husband said his prime rib was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive, keeping our tea glasses filled. The noise level was distracting and made conversation difficult. I’d be willing to try them again, but will not order salmon next time.

Our server was friendly, accommodating but untrained. Had to be prompted to bring additional beverages and side items ordered. Served main dishes but not silverware to dine with. Our food came out swiftly, and properly prepared. We had reservations and were seated promptly, at a table that had not been wiped down from the prior diners, a COVID no, no for us.

Owners, managers need to be more attentive to details and spend time training their staff.

Thought the whole experience was very good. The Only reason for not choosing the fifth star, is my food was lukewarm trending toward cool. But the taste was very good. They have a very good wine and food menu even with the Reduced menu because of COVID. Service was outstanding!

My husband and myself had a wonderful celebration at The Chophouse on Bankhead. The service was amazing! Being from Austin, Tx, where great food is everywhere, The Chophouse stood it’s ground as being high top on our list. Outstanding to say the least. The ribeye was seasoned and cooked just right. Their sauces were spectacular. I had the Linguini with Truffle sauce and grilled Shrimp on top. No words can describe it.
If you are ever in Mt Vernon, Texas, make a reservation, Wednesday’s through Saturday. Highly recommend the restaurant.

I know there is a new chef who is experimenting with new menu items. However, the eggplant parm was grossly undercooked. I hope it was just a bad night. We really want to embrace the new chef and have an awesome dining experience in Mt Vernon!

Reviews and photos from their website were better than the actual experience. Sitting close to the front of the steakhouse sort of by ourselves may have started us off on a wrong foot, sort of away from the action. Steaks and salmon and linguine were very good but presented in an average way. Seem like folks dining outside were having a much better time....

The spicy Caesar salad was AMAZING! We had the Salmon and Ribeye. Both of our main courses were great, but could’ve been better. The Salmon could’ve had more flavor and the ribeye was a little tough. The lemon tart with blueberry purée was divine! Our sever Karli (sp?) was so sweet and provided excellent customer service. We will definitely be back!

The server was so sweet, as were the other staff we spoke with. The drinks were good. And the food was pretty good. Their shrimp is ginormous and scrumpcious. The bread was yummy, and the butter pats are in the shape of flowers. Adorable! The inside of the restaurant is loud, even when it’s not crowded. This actually worked great for us since we had a baby in our party. The green beans needed some seasoning and some were charred. All the steaks at our table (and there were at least 4) were undercooked. We all asked to have the steaks cooked medium. 3 of the 4 came out medium rare and the 4th was very rare. Only one (the very rare one) was sent back. The chef/cook tried a couple of times to get it right, but after the second refire, the steak came out way too charred and was not edible. The very kind server explained that they did not have any filets left and so offered up another type of steak (some sort of Korean steak with chimichurri sauce). I felt so bad for both the chef and my pregnant niece when this steak also came out rare. She felt awful telling the server that this steak was also rare (I mean like purple rare). At this point, the rest of the table was done and we’d been there for a long time...with a baby...so she just asked for a pasta dish to go. She figured it’s almost impossible to mess up pasta. And she was right. It was very good (fettuccine noodles with chicken and marinara). The staff was so apologetic. They really did try to make it right. I expect we may go back in the future, but we just won’t order steak. Overall, it was a nice evening.

Thanks for serving our family, celebrating our 44 year of marriage! To be honest, our table of ten could have been in a quieter area, not next to kitchen. Only two other tables were occupied. The manager said someone had lost our order, so he offered a complimentary bottle of wine. Food was good, when we finally was served, but we didn't expect these problems for the price we paid. Our waitress was very nice, and was very apologetic for the service. Sorry!
