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.

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.

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!!!

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!

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.

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.

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!!

My wife and I dined there for the first time on Friday the 12th. The staff was very friendly and our two servers were spot on. They were very engaging and a pleasure to convers with. They have a nice assortment of wine and a fully stocked bar. The steaks we had were cooked to perfection and were of excellent quality.
The only complaints that I have are that it took far to long to get our appetizer and a Texas restaurant that doesn't have ranch dressing.
