Great food for a special occasion. However, we were seated well after reservation time. Bar area pretty small for the crowd. Pricey but excellent and varied food.

The atmosphere is sterile. Two black screens on either wall - at least some marketing would be appropriate. Hostess, nice personality, a little too anxious about turning tables but overall welcoming, She could have used the opportunity when she was seating us to do some soft selling "happy hour pricing on wine and beer is happening for the next ..." or have you dined with us before? " I'll get you some water" was the her concern. Nice but....Uniforms were sharp, a name tag would be appropriate, no dangling earrings please ,and also a great training lesson would be how to serve the stemless wine glass ..keep your fingers away from the lip! The food is expensive, but good, hot, and a nice presentation. Something else should be added to enhance the experience, whether it is crudites and cheese spread or your house made viniagrette something other than the meager bread and butter presentation. Your check presentation is interesting, always include a pen! I am not in a hurry to return and I hope when I do to see your facility up a notch or two in all areas. You have the basics just take it to the next level.

No real complaints besides the prices. I don’t mind paying that much for a steak but it better be something amazing. To me it was like any $25 steak you can get in the area. The steak was pretty good but not better than 3-4 places in the Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls area that are half the price. I wish it wasn’t that way.

My first Wissota Chophouse experience was this past October at the Stevens Point location and was excellent. Great steaks, sides and desserts, wonderful ambiance, clean, very nice staff. That experience prompted me to treat my family to the Chippewa Falls location this past week. While the food was good, I came away disappointed when comparing the two locations. Not in the way of great staff, and a very nice location, clean, quiet, well lit, etc. It was the food that I came away a bit disappointed in. Let me say, I compare all high end steak restaurants to my all time favorite Manny's of Minneapolis. The Stevens Point experience left me excited about the fact that I had a Manny's-esque restaurant right in my back yard without having to drive to Minneapolis. My latest visit to WC of Chipp was good but not great. The food was prepared well, nice flavor, timely. I just cannot put my finger on why I was left disappointed... I am yet undecided if I'll go back anytime soon?

A reservation was made to celebrate a special occasion. We chose to sit at a table versus the bar because of that. I actually think it would have been quieter at the bar. There were only three tables seated total, but everyone was sat right next to each other. There was a large group that was very loud, laughing, and swearing the whole time we were there. That took away from the romantic upscale ambiance a bit. The service was great. The server was very attentive, kind, and energetic. She went out of her way to answer some of our questions. The food for the most part was very good. A couple things under seasoned/over seasoned. The prices seem a bit steep for what you get, but you need to remind yourself that the sides are shareable portions therefore very generous. They were out of our first choice appetizer. The sides are shareable and of large size while the appetizers are rather small and just a taste. Yes, we paid a lot, $300+ (two appetizers, soup/salad, two steaks, two shareable sides, dessert, two bottles of wine, and tip), but we had leftovers (including half a bottle of wine). I’d say we ended up with about two and a half meals total for that price. So if you do the math it adds up. AND it was a special occasion. Not necessarily a place for a weekly or even monthly date night, but an okay experience for a special occasion. My steak was under done and my husband’s was over done, but they both still tasted very good and the restaurant made it right. We felt rushed because everything came so quickly and we weren’t able to just sit and enjoy each course. Even though there was still 20-30 minutes left before they were scheduled to close staff started cleaning up and moving things all around us. A mop bucket was even brought out. We would have gladly moved over to the bar/lounge to relax and finish our drink, but instead felt like we had to gulp it down and get out of their way. Although there are things they could improve overall it was a nice experience.

While the food was good I don't feel it's worth the money they are asking. I ordered the aged ribeye and it was very tender but other than that the flavor was only ok. It wasn't anything special. My wife got the seabass and it was the same, nothing special. Based on the pricing and the food not being anything special I don't need to go back.

Came here and I just want to state that our server Taylor was outstanding and attentive. We didn’t wait or want for anything. The manager Heidi also went above and beyond to ensure our experience was perfect, going so far as noticing my date wasn’t enjoying her drink and offering to have the bartender remake it to her tastes. The food was fantastic and cooked as requested. One of the better dining experiences in recent memory, we will always stop by here when swinging through town.

We were greeted by the hostess who acknowledged our anniversary and said something about a free dessert. The waiter never said anything about our anniversary and offered nothing. We requested a quieter table and while we were seated in a back corner of the restaurant, they placed us next to a loud group of 8 people. It was not the quiet or romantic ambiance that was desired for an anniversary celebration. I could barely hear my date. Entrees (ribeye and sea bass) were good, but spendy given no salad, bread or sides were included. We had the shareable fries with bacon and blue cheese which was delicious. Loved the raspberry tiramisu. While food was good and server was attentive, it was expensive and didn’t match the ambiance.

Flavors just seemed to be off the entire night beginning with my drink at the bar. I ordered bernaise sauce which had too much lemon in it. Sides are ordered to share and we tried the whipped potatoes and the cauliflower at $11 each and the potatoes were just okay and the cauliflower gratin had too much bread crumbs on the top and lots of red bell pepper. Our steaks were average. They were out of the seafood item that our friend ordered. I guess we prefer more basic items such as baked potatoes and although our service was great we won't be going back again.

1. WAY OVERPRICED FOR THE QUALITY OF FOOD!
2. HOSTESS AND SERVERS WERE EXCELLENT; PROMPT, FRIENDLY, ATTENTIVE, ETC.
3. ENVIRONMENT WAS FAIR; NEAT, CLEAN, NICELY DESIGNED, AND TOO NOISY.
4. FOOD WAS SO-SO. RIB EYE STEAK WAS NOT HOT, BUT WAS TENDER AND DONE AS REQUESTED WHILE NOT BEING VERY FLAVORFUL.
5. WATER GLASSES NEED ICE.
6. TABLE NEEDS SALT AND PEPPER; WHERE WAS IT?
7. MASHED POTATOES WERE WAY OVER PRICED.

THIS BUSINESS WILL NOT SURVIVE UNLESS IT ADJUSTS THE PRICES, AND PAYS MORE ATTENTION TO DETAIL.

Food and service was very good. Presentation superb and taste beyond great. My fish special was the best however my wife’s scallops were average and worked out to $5. per piece which seemed a bit spendy good sized scallops with nothing else on the plate. We had three sides to share and the portions were huge and all tasty. Our meal with two drinks and a huge piece of carrot cake ( again very good) was $125 plus tip and a fair value. We will return to try other entree’s with more knowledge of what to expect.

The food was amazing but I felt the server talked down to me a bit when I asked if my old fashioned would come with cherries. It is fairly common to get an old fashioned with olives in Wisconsin.

Took my wife for her birthday. Expected to spend around $200. Much to my surprise and delight, the check was only $130. A more than fair price for what we received. Their beer/wine lists were expansive and easy to read, the dinner menu was much the same. We had the frog legs to start (amazing), I ordered the Sea Bass Rockefeller (healthy portion, explosive flavor), my wife ordered the petite fillet mignon with a side of scallops (fillet melted in your mouth after the first bite, scallops were seared to perfection), we split a "2 person" side of Bleu Cheese Risotto (more like 3 person, was creamy and extremely flavorful), we finished with a free slice of chocolate cake we were given for her birthday (moist, very tall slice, rich chocolate). Overall: one of the best meals we have ever shared in a restaurant. Will absolutely be back.

Service was just ok, the server we had did not mention items they were out of for the evening and did not bring out soup at the requested time, resulting in us sending the soup back. The bartender did not know a single price for a cocktail, glass of scotch, etc and it took him 15 minutes to make our drinks--he asked our order but then did several other things before actually making our drinks. Food was delicious and well priced!

We chose to try the chophouse even after reading some of the reviews. My girlfriend wanted a “good” steak and we love to explore new places. Filet mignon and I had the NY strip. Side for two was risotto w snap peas and butternut squash. I also had to try the mushroom medley as an extra w my steak, let me tell you an honest, working mans review............

First at no point and time did I feel intimidated by the atmosphere or the suit and ties that were in there. The staff was absolutely amazing. Our waitress knew exactly what she was talking about and had instant suggestions for wine to complement our meals.

The steaks, melt in your mouth amazing. Cooked perfectly and if they were seasoned at all, it was so minor. You got to actually taste the steak! The mushroom medley, we honestly could not get enough of. And while it was enough for our meals we still wanted more.

The snap peas in the risotto were very refreshing and tasted absolutely amazing. My first time w risotto so, to me it was a very excellent choice to a side for two. To finish this all off, we decided to try out the bread pudding dessert. The caramel sauce they use on this dessert is absolutely heaven. If you have a sweet tooth I highly recommend it.

From the previous reviews we read, we knew it was gonna be a little bit more expensive that typical, however when the bill cam it was worth it! We will be back soon!
