Visited this new Mt. Vernon restaurant and thought it was awesome! Would have given it a 5 star rating except my baked potato was lukewarm. The rest of the meal was outstanding. All six of us had the ribeye and everyone thought it was delicious and cooked as requested. Two had the wedge salad and two others had the Caesar salad and both were very good. Greens were crisp dressings were all very good. Their wine list was surprisingly extensive with very good selections. Worth a drive over to visit!
Great food and great wine !! Bone in filet was over the top !! A little pricy but really good!!
The Chophouse keeps getting better and better. They brought back a favorite, chicken tortilla soup, and it did not disappoint! The chef and his wife came around to check on our table. They don't have a kids menu but the chef can fix up many things to satisfy the picky little ones (chicken tenders with french fries satisfied our kiddos). Service was prompt and on point, the wine was excellent and fairly priced, and the steaks were great. One was over done but they promptly took it back with no qualms and within minutes had a replacement steak that was cooked perfectly. Highly recommended!
We chose the Chophouse to celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary and it was a great choice. The service was fantastic and we really enjoyed the personal attention and recommendations of the chef. Food was excellent with a good wine selection. We'll definitely return.
Owner fully plugged in to make your experience fantastic!
We love this restaurant! It is so worth the drive from the Dallas area with either the highway or scenic country roads. The Chef is superb and the waitstaff is excellent and the food is divine! It’s just like being among good friends!
These folks do their best to make your food experience extraordinary.
The overall experience was fine, but not overwhelming.
Service was above average.
Meal was average - at best, dull and flavorless.
I ordered the one item from the menu they could not provide and the waiter should have told us prior to order.
If I happened to be in Mt. Vernon I might eat there again, but I would not travel to eat there, that's a certainty.
The food was not good, not a bit of seasoning on a expensive undercooked steak. Whit Russian drink was the worst one I had. My husband's food was way too salty. The unsweet tea was a spiced tea, not good for a man who is just a regular tea man. There were no condiments on the table which I could have used on my food. Overall when you spend that much money on a dinner you expect it to be worth the price.
Excellent Food and Service. This was our 4th time in 3 months. Always excellent
Enam, you rocked it!! Food was fabulous, wine spectacular. Everything about the evening was fab!! Hope you stay in Mt. Vernon for a very long while! Your friends from Big D!
Enam and his crew have done a wonderful job. This is the third time we have eaten at the Chophouse on Bankhead. The waitress was exceptionally knowledgeable. The food came out on time and perfect. Enam and Karen are great friends of ours, and we wish them the best of luck.
Nice attention from the owner/chef. The fresh vegetables and dessert were the best! We had the chocolate soufflé- wow.
Party of two; we had the special, The Tomahawk. The steak was very tender and tasted great. Key lime pie was also some of the best we have eaten anywhere. The music was nice and gentle so talking was easy. The service was fabulous. Food, more than enough, and service are worth the price paid. Enjoy your meal.
This place is a real gem! Wonderful food and service. The owners circulate among the diners making you feel appreciated for choosing them. We have been there now 3 times and every time was excellent. We can't rave enough about this find!
Amazing place! The food is amazing and awesome service.
Had drinks and dinner. All was great. Recommend the filet, cooked just right. Had one of the best ever Key Lime tarts. Coffee to finish off and wonderful as well.
We will definitely be back.
Food was amazing! Atmosphere was nice. Service was wonderful. Great place for date night or special occasion.
Awesome food. Salad was different. Not saying it was bad just not what I have ever had before.
Having been here several times already, the service, hospitality and food are impeccable. Chef Enam goes beyond our expectations with each creation he brings to our table or while at the bar. The friendly staff makes us feel welcome and they are most attentive to our needs and wants every time. Why drive to Dallas now when we have Chophouse at Bankhead! We love you guys! Congratulations on your new endeavor!!!
The meal and the staff was wonderful as always. always enjoy a night out at the Chophouse.
Steak was raw - sent back twice. Crusted halibut was a small, thin square with glob of crushed walnuts on top. Ordered sweet potato instead of baked, still got baked, had to ask twice to get replacement.
The restaurant was nice, the servers are polite but most of them have dirt on their shoes, missing teeth & messy hair. I observed the cooks throwing food into each other’s mouths, horseplaying, etc. We ordered a medium rare ribeye that came out with the center cold & purple. I was disappointed for the money we spent. I hope they improve & succeed.
Fantastic meal at The Chophouse! The tortilla soup is amazing, and the steak was succulent. My only complaint might be a lack of a choice on sides, but I think they are already making headway there by offering more options than before. HIGHLY recommended, best steak around this area.
We've visited the Chophouse twice with our family, and both meals were exceptional! Food is prepared perfectly, from crab cakes and salads to steaks (unfortunately, my 11 year old LOVES the $30 filet!) to an off menu pan seared duck or simple but amazing off menu spaghetti for our six year old. The staff is warm, attentive, and the chef and his team are incredible. He routinely walks the floor, chats up guests, and ensures the experience is perfect. And so far, our visits have been just that. By far the best restaurant we've found in East Texas near Mt Pleasant/Mt Vernon/Pittsburg/Winnsboro. We will be back!
Great food and service.
Chef Enam and his staff are awesome. Can’t believe we have such a wonderful place in small east Texas.
Best restaurant in area hands down. We will be back.
Wow! We enjoyed our weekend at The Chophouse! Everything was amazing! Our Saturday night dinner was outstanding from cocktails to appetizers to entrees and desserts. The service is spot on. Everyone was attentive and friendly. We were treated as VIPs. The food, service and hospitality really shine! Truly five stars! Our experience was so good that we came back for Sunday brunch and loved it. Kudos to The Chophouse team! We’ll see you again soon.
Fabulous experience. I recommend the Chop House to all my friends.
Truly a gem in the town square. Very friendly staff and chef.
The food and service second to none. Highly recommend.
Very nice evening
took my wife here on a date it was a fantastic meal. Our steaks were really good and cooked perfectly. their chef came by our table to check if our food was perfect. nice touch. the dessert a Praline cake was crazy good and rich. 1 order is good for 2 people because it is rich and tasty.
We will be back.
This is my favorite place to eat. I want an experience when I go out to eat, and this is a good one. Beautifully restored vintage building. Energetic, cheerful staff. Try the steak, med well.
Didn't like the fact that when I reserved a table thru Open Table there were no 6:00 or 6:30 options available so had to take a 5:30 table. At 6:00 and 6:30 there were plenty of tables available since we were still there.
Exceptional Service and food was outstanding!!!
Beautifully restored building in downtown Mt. Vernon, TX
Excellent. We are already planning our next visit.
Very nice experience overall and while food was good it's not "big city" quality or creativity for the "big city" prices! Work on timing of food as we were served our entrees while still eating appetizers! Need live music, lower the lights and block the front door opening from freezing everyone else out!!
