    This was our first time going to chopshop and honestly it will probably become one of our favorite places to go. Our waiter and care staff was amazing and the mashed potatoes were the best. Thanks for making Valentine’s Day fun and so inviting!

    After reading other reviews I was prepared to love this place. We did eat there on a slow, cold and rainy evening, so indoors. With it being a slow night, there was no excuse for some of the missteps in cooking. My steak was very hard to chew, and the Brussel sprouts were not prepared properly for cooking and I had to pare them before eating. The flavor was good, but they were not cooked long enough. My friend had the pork chops and was happy with his meal and helped me eat my frites after tasting a few - they were good. Our appetizers, the meatballs and the caprese, were good but not outstanding. Other problems: there was one choice for a bottle of red wine. Luckily it was decent. Horrible club music was playing when we arrived, but our very nice waitress managed to get it changed to something more suitable. The restaurant has a certain charm that I am sure comes through a lot better during non-virus times, but I would have to give it another chance before recommending to others. This trip was definitely not worth the pre-tip $139.00.

    Came here with a friend on a Sat night the beginning of Oct. We sat on the rooftop patio and though it was chilly outside, it was nice up there with the heaters. The decor and ambiance were very nice and relaxing. They had a band which was a lot of fun and not disturbing. I had the grilled pork chop which was delicious and beautifully presented. My friend had the burger which was described fantastically but appeared pretty blah and plain. He said it was OK but far from fantastic and really not worth the price. Pub burgers were better. Overall, it was a really nice place and I'd recommend it.

    Patio was great place to eat and to listen to live music. Our server was very patient with me as I have a hearing problem. The prosciutto wrapped burrata was just the starter we needed. Our burgers were prepared well and quickly. The sweet potato fries were a table wide hit. Great evening.

    We were lucky to get a shady spot. It's cozy but i felt like there was enough space. Staff was very attentive and everyone maintained safe practices. Brunch standards w some twists, I had Chicken & Waffles, which were generous and good. The bloody mary was ok, nothing special, you're better off w the $24 endless mimosa. I love that it's a Saturday brunch and I enjoyed the DJs. I would definitely recommend it.

    Sat on the rooftop during Aug 2020. Service was very good and following COVID guidelines. Everyone wore masks, tables were distanced and cleaned after each group left. Bottomless mimosas were actively filled throughout our brunch visit. Food was also good. DJ played club-like music and was so loud our server couldn't hear us and had to lean in close to take our order. We asked for the music to be turned down a bit so we could hear each other at the table which they had no issue doing. A good experience all around.

    Went there for a date night. We have only been there for concert before. First time dinning there and Chop Shop did not disappoint! Everyone had mask on. If you want your waiter to come to your table, you need to put your mask on to signal. It made both of us feel safe and comfortable. Cute patio and great food! Oysters were fresh and delicious. Brussel sprout with prosciutto and house bbq sauce was AMAZING (we have been trying to recreate the favor at home!). Burger and steak were both perfectly seasoned and cooked. One of the best dinning experience we had during COVID.
