The Chophouse on Bankhead
The specials were perfection on a plate. We had crab cakes and crab claws for appetizers. So good! The wine was a great compliment to the seafood. Flounder with butter, lemon and capers on a bed of cauliflower mash. Finished with lava cake for dessert and left nothing on the plate. We were greeted by the owners and made to feel at home.
Wonderful place to dine and great food and service.
Service has improved a lot, food has always been great but it takes forever to get your meal. Some of the food should be hotter IMO, but didn’t change the flavor. Took ~45min to get our appetizer then dinner followed about ~20min later. Steak & lobster.
The food was top shelf. Every item we ordered was absolutely on the mark. They are slightly understaffed for service and although we didn’t wait as long, I noticed other diners waited a long time for their entrees. I would recommend this restaurant for its outstanding food and maybe go on a night other than Saturday to speed up the service.
Wonderful dining experience! Chef Enam and his team pay attention to every detail.
Enam was a gracious host. The entire meal was a wonderful experience.
We are from the greater Dallas area and always enjoy the experience at the Chophouse. The Chophouse has really lifted the social dinning experience in Mt. Vernon to a new level. We have also enjoyed the catering from the Chophouse at many friends and family events.
Love everything about this place and will be back tomorrow! The food was outstanding except for the desert. The coffee more than made up for it though! Excellent steak, salmon and pasta. The Chophouse is a spectacular find in a small quaint town.
Everything was great! The food was as good as anywhere and the wine selection was good and reasonably priced
It was great! Our server Wendy was fantastic and loved that the chef came to our table to chat and see how everything was!
Great place in Mt. Vernon, TX! Ribeye was seasoned and cooked perfectly.
This was our third time here and it did not disappoint. We have had a variety of the appetizers, salads, soups, mains, deserts, etc and have never been disappointed. Service has always been excellent as well, and Edith did a great job for us this time as well - she was very friendly, helpful, and professional.
Steak served raw after ordering it medium. Not only mine but my wife’s was raw also. Very over priced for the quality of food they serve.
The food was spectacular as always. The service was top notch as always. It is my favorite restaurant in Mount Vernon with nothing comparable until you reach the DFW area.
Headed to the Chophouse with relatives visiting for the first time. Chef Enam and his team didn’t disappoint. From appetizers to main course to wine selections and service, we were delighted. One of our guests remarked later, “That’s not a restaurant. It’s an experience.” We will be back.
THE SERVICE WAS GREAT, FOOD WAS TERRIFIC, WE HAVE NEEDED THIS TYPE OF DINING EXPERIENCE IN MT VERNON FOREVER. LOOK FORWARD TO TAKING FRIENDS THERE TO SHOW THEM WHAT THE DINING EXPERIENCE CAN BE.
Have been there several times and will be back. Great menu though a bit limited. Very nice bar and wine selections. Filet was excellent and love having the owners visit our table !
My husband ordered the aged ribeye not realizing that it would have a funk to it. He took two bites and said he couldn't eat anymore. They came out and talked to him and told him that he should've gotten the prime filet, as it's not aged. He ordered that and it came out perfect!!! I ordered the fresh linguini in a truffle cream sauce with shrimp and it was amazing!! We will definitely be going back.
Not inexpensive, but the food is amazing! Will be back again!
We where seated at a table that rocketed so bad it took five minutes for the hostess to shim up the legs instead of seating us at another table. There were many empty tables available and we will know why soon....the waiter took our order and said he was going to get our salads and bread, got the salads but had to ask several times for the bread which we got after we finished. No salt or pepper on table, waiter told us they do not do that..... you have to ask.. really?? When we got our steaks, they were not what we ordered, waiter said he turned it in wrong but we could wait another 30 minutes and he would correct it! We accepted the wrong steaks since we had all really waited too long. I asked for a cocktail and it took 20 minutes...had to keep asking! The place is overpriced and I’ve had better food, service at a value price at TRH. Pass this place up and you will save a lot of money and disappointment! I’m sure it will close soon anyhow!
Such a treasure in Mt Vernon Tx. We were the first dinners at 5:00pm. The wait staff and Chef were attentive and inviting. We felt like welcome guest. The food was very good! We sampled some off menu items and enjoyed them. The salad was perfect. Crisp, flavorful greens and house made dressing. We will make this a destination each time we visit!
Amazing. As always!
Night out with friends. Had two bottles of the Pinot Noir Bella Glas. It was delicious! Appetizers, entrees, and dessert were also delicious! Our waitress was extremely attentive. A great meal with lots of conversation and laughs! Will definitely be back!
The chef is wonderful! He informed and entertained our table, we will definitely go back! A+++
Great food, wait staff and chef. Enjoyed the personal attention.
Not up to our previous experience at this restaurant. Several dishes too heavily salted. Strip steak beyond expected Japanese genetics marbling. It was just plain fatty. Veal nicely flavored but very tough. At a price point of $650 for 8 people the experience should have been far different.
Great food and service, good conversation. We will be back.
From out of town looking for a decent meal. Tired of the bland Tex-mex, artery clogging fried catfish and fast food burgers. The meal and service was very good. The atmosphere was inviting. Had the ribeye steak. A gem of a restaurant I highly suggest trying out. Definitely worth the drive from Mt. Pleasant.
The food is the issue. I’ve been there four times. I want it to be good, but the food is the issue simply not good.
The food was fantastic! We both had pasta dishes and they were amazing. The truffle cream sauce was to die for.
Everything was impeccable! From the service, the food, atmosphere and environment- everything was perfect! The staff was very friendly and immediately made you feel welcome! We were visited by the head chef and owner several times throughout the evening and the waiters were very attentive. Food was fantastic! I would definitely recommend for a romantic evening or delicious fine dining!
As always The Chophouse was exceptional! Chef and his staff go above and beyond to make the dining experience fantastic and the food is delicious! Chef is always coming around to make sure that the food is what you want. We feel like family when we are here!
With the caveat that the atmosphere is great but food only a notch above Chili's but at about 3 times the price. Service is good, owners very friendly and attentive. Located in very small town, owners and chef probably do not have urban restaurant experience.
Great dinner, we couldn’t of asked for anything else!
Wonderful! We loved it! The food and service is outstanding!
Excellent service. Salmon was delicious!
Fantastic food and great service! Enom makes you feel right at home and the steaks are amazing! Thanks chophouse!
This was our second time at the Chophouse and we brought neighbors to make a party of eight.
Extremely disapppointed this time. Something was very off.
Reservation was at 6;30 pm and at 8:30 pm our food was not prepared.
No explanation - no appology.
We made the most of it. The Chophouse has to deliver a consistent high level dining expereince to win back our party.
